Jan. 9, 2013

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - For the second time this season, UNLV's Jessica Heim has been named the Mountain West Women's Swimmer Of The Week, the league office announced on Wednesday. It's the fourth weekly honor of her career, with her first of the current season coming on Nov. 9.

A junior and native of San Diego, Calif., Heim won all three of her individual events and also swam on a first-place relay to lead the Rebels to a pair of dual meet victories on Jan. 5. The wins were 188-98 at CSU Bakersfield and 168-126 over conference member Fresno State, also at Bakersfield.

Heim began the day with a win in the 500 free in a time of 5:05.26, and added a first place time of 10:33.17 in the 1000 free. Her third win was in the 200 fly, as she touched the wall in a time of 2:08.22. Heim then closed out by anchoring the 400 free relay that won in a time of 3:31.36.

The Rebels, 3-4 on the season, return to action on Saturday, Jan. 19, when they host UC Santa Barbara at 10 am in Buchanan Natatorium.
