Apostalon back on top of Mountain West weekly awards, Nevada’s Palmer honored

Defending Mountain West Swimmer of the Year Anika Apostalon is back into the conference’s weekly awards for the first time this year, earning Swimmer of the Week honors.

The San Diego State sophomore won the 100 and 200 frees this weekend at home against Hawaii, breaking a pool record in the process. Her 49.88 win in the 100 free was the fastest time ever swum in the Aztecs’ pool, and the first sub-50-second swim as well. Apostalon also put up a big relay split on the team’s winning 200 free relay.

Meanwhile Nevada’s Krysta Palmer snapped Cari Reiswig‘s reign as Diver of the Week. After San Jose State’s Reiswig won the first two weekly awards of the season, Palmer claimed the third on a double-win weekend against Fresno State. Palmer won both the 1-meter and 3-meter events, putting up NCAA Zone qualifying scores in each.
