DENVER, Colo. - Sophomore Amber Boucher earned WAC Swimmer of the Week honors after a pair of spectacular meets last week. Boucher won 11 of her 12 events last week and swam four season-bests.
Boucher, a sophomore from Keizer, Ore. (McNary HS), helped the Broncos to wins over Tulane and San Diego with a perfect record in her individual events last week. On Thursday, she beat out the competition from San Diego State and Tulane in the 50 free (23.54) and the 100 fly (55.85) as well as helping the 400 free relay team (3:27.67) to a first-place finish over both teams. On Saturday, Boucher helped both of her relay teams to victories over San Diego while also winning the 100 fly (56.43) and 200 free (1:51.54). The times she posted in the 50 free, 100 fly, 200 free and the lead-off leg of the 400 free relay (50.69) on Thursday are the second best in those events by any WAC swimmer this year.
The Broncos take on in-state rival, Idaho, on Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. at the Boise-West YMCA.
