Jan. 16, 2013

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Wyoming junior Morgan Hartigan and New Mexico sophomore Michole Timm have earned Mountain West Women's Swimmer and Diver of the Week honors, respectively, for meets contested Jan. 11-14. It is the second MW honor for Hartigan this season, and the first for Timm.

Hartigan, from Cheyenne, Wyo., won two individual events and was a part of two victorious relay teams for the Cowgirls in their dual meet with Denver (195-105) on Jan. 12. Hartigan won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 23.47, and the 100-yard freestyle in 51.71. She swam the lead legs of the 4x400-yard freestyle relay and 200-yard medley relay, which Wyoming won in 3:33.34 and 1:44.66, respectively.

A native of Sauk Rapids, Minn., Timm set a new New Mexico school record in the 1-meter springboard dive on Jan. 12 in a dual meet with Grand Canyon (131-122) with a score of 347.78, besting the old record of 337.20, set by former All-American Gabby Erickson. Timm's 1-meter total is the highest in the Mountain West this season. She scored a 343.80 in the 3-meter springboard, which was good for second place in the meet, and is the second-highest total in the Mountain West. Both marks qualify Timm for the NCAA Diving Zones in March.
