North Earns Second WAC Swimmer of the Week Honor of 2009
DENVER, Colo. – For the third time in her career and the second time this season, Stephanie North was named the Verizon Wireless WAC Swimmer of the Week. North is the only Bronco to earn the award twice in one season and has won the honor more times than any other Bronco in her career.

North, a sophomore from Klamath Falls, Ore. (Henley HS), competed at the Missouri Invitational last weekend and made school history.  North won the 100-yard freestyle with a school-record time of 50.06.  Her time is a provisional NCAA qualifying mark, the first “B” cut ever achieved by a Boise State swimmer.  The time was also the best in the WAC this season.  North also swam a WAC season-best time in the 200 free (1:51.60) to place fifth in the event.  She added an eighth place finish in the 50 free.  North was part of all five relay teams with a top finish of third for the Broncos in the 400 free.

The Broncos will next compete in a pair of dual meets in San Diego, Calif. on Jan. 7-9 before returning home to take on in-state rival, Idaho on Jan. 23.
