LAS CRUCES, N.M. – New Mexico State swimmer Terrin Seaver has been named the Western Athletic Conference Women’s Swimmer of the Week for the week of Dec. 2-8, the conference announced Tuesday.
Seaver, a senior from Lake Geneva, Wis. (Elkhorn HS), swept both backstroke events during New Mexico State’s dual meet with Northern Arizona on Saturday. She won the 100 back with a time of 57.19 and the 200 back with a time of 2:03.75. Though the times were not season-bests for Seaver, both are in the WAC’s top-10 for the year. She also swam the leadoff leg of the Aggies’ winning 200 medley relay team (1:47.25).
“Terrin is an amazing person to coach and a great leader for our squad,” head coach Rick Pratt said. “It is awesome to see her recognized for her performances.”
Seaver has the fastest time of the season for the Aggies in the 100 back (55.67), 200 back (1:59.32) and 100 fly (55.58). She also is the NM State record holder in the 100 back with a time of 55.38 in 2012.
This is the first WAC Swimmer of the Week award for Seaver and the second conference award for the Aggies this season, as sophomore Audrey Ruiz won the WAC Diver of the Week award for the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3.
NM State continues its season on Jan. 3, 2014, with a trip to Tucson, Ariz., to compete in a three-way meet.
