Heim Named MW Swimmer Of Week

Nov. 7, 2012

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Thanks to a double-event win performance in last weekend's home win over BYU, UNLV's Jessica Heim was named the Mountain West Women's Co-Swimmer Of The Week, the league office announced on Wednesday. It's the first weekly honor of her career, and the first by a Rebel this season. Heim shared this week's award with Boise State's Devin Madsen.

Heim, a junior and native of San Diego, Calif., swept the distance free events to help the Rebels top their former conference rival by a 161-139 score on Nov. 3. She won the 500 free in a time of 5:00.75, and the 1000 free in 10:24.49. She also swam on UNLV's first-place 400 free relay, which touched the wall in a time of 3:28.48.

The Rebels' next competition is on Saturday, as they host Utah and the University of Calgary at 2 pm in Buchanan Natatorium.
