COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
University of Wyoming seniors Morgan Hartigan and Amanda Fay earned Mountain West weekly honors on Wednesday afternoon, announced by the conference office. It is the first time in Fay’s career that she has been named MW Diver of the Week. Hartigan earned Swimmer of the Week honors for the fourth time in her career with three coming a season ago.
Hartigan, a native of Cheyenne, Wyo., had a career day in Corbett Pool winning three races and setting two Corbett Pool records.

The mark also put Fay on top of the Mountain West best list this season. She also placed second in the 3-meter dive with a score of 297.45.
