Feb. 5, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-- The Mountain West Conference has announced Boise State's freshman Brittany Aoyama as its swimmer of the week, for competition from Jan. 29-Feb.4. This is her third accolade of the season.

Aoyama, the Stockton, Calif., native, helped Boise State assemble a 169-87 dual-meet victory over Oregon State on Feb. 1. The rookie garnered three individual event wins, including the 100-yard butterfly (54.91), 50-yard freestyle (23.53) and the 100-yard freestyle (50.85).

Aoyama was also on the winning 400-yard medley relay, along with Devin Madsen, Heather Harper and Mandie Siehs. Their time of 3:46.84 set a Boise West YMCA pool record.

The Broncos finish the 2013-14 season with 10 swimming and diving weekly honors, the most for any school.

The Boise State women's swimming and diving team currently is preparing for the Mountain West Championships, held at the Palo Alto Aquatic Center in San Antonio, Texas, Feb. 19-22.
