Three athletes earn aquatic honors

By Paige Fieldsted, Staff Writer

The first week the Mountain West Conference chose swimmers and divers, Utah athletes nearly swept the ballot, receiving three of the four awards.

Freshman Whitney Lopus was named the women’s Swimmer of the Week. Sophomore diver Anna Braszkiwiecz and junior Michael Glasson were named as the conference’s Divers of the Week.

Lopus has won nine events in three meets so far this season, including seven wins in Utah’s opening weekend against the Washington Huskies and Boise State Broncos.

In the first MWC meet against San Diego State, Lopus broke two Aztec Aquaplex records as she finished the 500 free in 4 minutes 57.36 seconds and led the Utes to a time of 3 minutes 31.46 seconds in the 400 free relay.

Braszkiwiecz has started the season undefeated on the 3-meter board, with first place finishes against Washington, Boise State and SDSU. She also finished No. 1 and No. 2 on the 1-meter board.

Glasson has placed No. 1 in both events he has competed in, winning the 3-meter dive with a score of 200 and the 1-meter springboard with a 125.75 against the UW on Oct. 3 and Oct. 4.

This is the first MWC Player of the Week award for each athlete.
