This is Sun Devil Swimming

Arizona State has been a mainstay of NCAA and Pac-12 success. Beginning with Mona Plummer and Ron Johnson, the Sun Devils have compiled eight AIWA team titles, 215 All-Americans (swim/dive), and 55 national champions (swim/dive). The Sun Devils have also prevailed on the international level. 55 Sun Devils have become Olympians including Gold Medalist Troy Dalbey and more have been members of United States National Teams including American gold medalist Cierra Runge in 2016.


Since its opening in 1981, the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center is regarded as one of the nation’s finest outdoor swimming and diving facilities. The aquatic center consists of three pools: an Olympic-sized 50-meter by 25 yard competition pool; a 25-yard, 18’ deep diving well; and 25-yard eight-lane warm-up pool. Other amenities include three platforms, four springboards, moveable bulkhead and team room. With seating for over 1,000 spectators, the facility was revitalized with a $1.2 million renovation in 2012.


Arizona State swimmers embody the term “student-athlete”. In May 2019, the CSCAA announced that both the Sun Devil men and women earned Scholar All-America honors for Spring 2019, marking the 12th consecutive semester dating back to fall 2013 that both squads have found a spot on the team. In spring 2019, the women posted their third-straight GPA improvement.

Sun Devil swimmers & divers are high achievers with big goals in and out of the pool and our Office of Student-Athlete Development, led by Natalie Thackrah, helps them achieve those goals. If a student is falling behind or wants an edge in getting ahead, there are a wealth of opportunities available to them including free and unlimited tutoring, learning specialists, networking opportunities.


Pac-12 Conference

The Pac-12 Conference is known as one of the toughest and most dominant conferences in Olympic sports. The Pac-12 rises above the rest, upholding its tradition as the “Conference of Champions” ®, becoming the first conference to win 500 team titles in 2017. As of May 2018, the Pac-12 had won 511 NCAA championships, 200+ more than the next closest conference (Big Ten).

Winning Tradition

Between the men’s and women’s swimming teams, Arizona State has garnered 68 individual Pac-12 champions, 55 national champions, and 215 All-Americans. This winning tradition continues as the Sun Devils consistently set new school records and improve in both conference and national competition.
