|Millet earns WAC honor|
University of Idaho sophomore Rachel Millet earned her second Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week honor after winning four times – three individual races and one relay, in last Saturday’s victory over Northern Arizona.
Millet’s times in the 50 free (23.77 seconds) and 200 individual medley (2:04.17) were the best in the WAC so far this season. Her winning 200 free time (1:52.31) is the third-best in the league as the season nears its midpoint. She also swam the anchor leg of the Vandals’ winning 400 medley relay.
“Rachel would probably be the first one to tell you it’s more of a team award than an individual award,” coach Mark Sowa said. “Even though it’s recognizing her, it’s recognizing the program is taking some significant steps forward.”
Sowa also credited Millet’s tireless work ethic and competitive nature.
“She’s learned how to race at the collegiate level,” Sowa said. “She’s comfortable. She enjoys racing.”
