Craig won three events last week to help No. 10 Arizona State upset the reigning national champions and No. 2 Texas, 162-138, on Jan. 26. The Monroe, Mich., native took first in the 100-yard freestyle (42.97) for the team’s fastest time of the season in the event and finished second in the 200 free (1:36.19). Craig currently holds the school record in each of the two individual events (100 – 41.95, 200 -1:31.71).
