BERKELEY - Cal freshman Missy Franklin, who was named the Pac-12 Swimmer of the Meet after leading the Golden Bears to the conference championship last weekend, has added another honor for her performance – National Swimmer of the Week by collegeswimming.com.
At the Pac-12 meet, Franklin won all three of her individual events in meet-record times – 100 free (47.17), 200 free (1:42.29) and 500 free (4:35.73). In addition, she helped Cal to victories in the 400 and 800 free relay and the 400 medley relay, and to a runner-up finish in the 200 medley relay.
Franklin was also chosen the National Swimmer of the Week earlier this season when she was the high-point scorer at AT&T Winter Nationals in December.
Franklin and the rest of her Cal teammates will next be in action at the NCAA Championships March 20-22 in Minneapolis.
