Dec. 6, 2007

LARAMIE, Wyo. - University of Wyoming sophomore Megan Evans was selected as the Mountain West Conference Women's Swimmer of the Week on Wednesday. This is the second weekly honor of the season for Evans.

Evans, a Fort Collins, Colo. native, broke two Wyoming school records and swam the third-best time in school history, while provisionally qualifying for the 2008 NCAA Championships at the Husky Invite in Seattle, Wash., last week. She broke school records in the 200 and 400 individual medley with respective times of 2:04.57 and 4:22.91 and swam the third-fastest time in program history in the 200 breaststroke (2:18.35). Her time in the 400 IM is an NCAA provisional qualifying mark and the fifth-fastest clocking in MWC history. Evans also swam on the 800 freestyle team that placed seventh with a time of 7:37.22.

Evans shares the weekly honor with UNLV's Kim Bonney.
