IRVING, Tex. - Rice sophomore Erin Flanigan is the first Conference USA Swimmer of the Week for the 2012-13 season, the league office announced from its headquarters in Irving, Tex., on Tuesday (Oct. 16).
Flanigan posted three of the top times in the conference so far this season after sweeping both distance races and turning in a solid 200-butterfly in the Owls' season-opening dual meet against Kansas at the Rice Aquatics Center Competition Pool. She pulled away over the final portion of the rugged 1,000-yard freestyle to win the event with a time of 10:13.69, the fastest mark by any Owl ever recorded at the team's home pool. The standout from Austin, Tex., who represented Rice in the United States Olympic Trials over the summer, then came back with her second victory of the meet in the 500-free with a steady 5:01.09. She was also close to another win against the Jayhawks in the 200-butterfly (2:04.42), but was out-touched at the wall by a narrow two one-hundredths of a second. This is Flanigan's first C-USA Swimmer of the Week award.
Houston sophomore Natasha Burgess is the C-USA Diver of the Week after posting Zone-qualifying marks on both springboard events. Burgess won both the one-meter (296.70 points) and three-meter (291.37 points) during the Cougars' first meet of the season against Florida International to qualify for NCAA Zone competition.
