The Conference office announced today that Mallory Korenwinder of ARIZONA was named Pac-12 Women’s Swimmer of the Week and UCLA’s Eloise Belanger was voted Pac-12 Women’s Diver of the Week for December.

Belanger (Montreal, QC, Canada) nearly swept UCLA’s annual Bruin Diving Invitational, registering wins in the 1-Meter and 3-Meter competitions, as well as a runner-up finish on Platform. The December Pac-12 Women’s Diver of the Month competed against divers from California, Stanford and USC, as well as a number of other schools at the Bruin Diving Invitational. Belanger led throughout on Day 1, when she tallied a score of 636.00 to take the 1-Meter. A day later, the junior posted a strong final-round performance to record a total score of 650.25 and overcome Mia Paulsen of Stanford. Belanger tallied scores of 650.25 in the 3-meter for first and 539.35 in platform for second.

Korenwinder (Tulare, Calif.) won both the 100-yard breaststroke and 200-yard breaststroke at a quad meet against Northern Arizona, New Mexico State and Rice. The sophomore clocked times of 1:03.76 in the 100 breast and 2:20.20 in the 200 breast. Korenwinder was just shy of the NCAA “B” standard of 1:02.49 in the 100 breast.

Korenwinder’s time in the 100-200 Breaststrokes were not even NCAA “B” cuts? Why PAC-12 Swimmer of the Week winner? Curious to know what their guidelines are.

Isleta’s times in the 100-200 Backstrokes were both NCAA “B” cuts and she broke the pool record at Washington State in the 200IM.

Just curious to know who makes up the selection body and interested to know its selection process.
