University of Idaho freshman Rachel Millet won her second Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week honor after sweeping to three victories in last week’s meet at New Mexico State University.

Millet, who just last year was a student at Spokane’s Ferris High School and competing for the Spokane Waves Aquatic Team, won the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle events as well as swimming a leg of the winning 400 free relay. She was timed in 24.61 seconds in the 50, 52.64 in the 100 free, and 1:52.46 in the 200 free. She swam the lead-off leg in joining forces with Megan Venlos, Erica Anderson and Si Jia Pang to win the 400 free relay.

Already this season, Millet has set four Idaho swimming records – the 50, 100 and 200 free as well as the 100 butterfly. She also is on the record-setting 800 free relay.

The Vandals are at home for the first time this season when they play host to Oregon State University at the UI Swim Center Saturday at 11 a.m. There is no admission charge and pom poms will be handed out to Vandal fans.
