Oct. 14, 2008

Swimmer of the Week
Stacy Busack, Minnesota
Sr., Fergus Falls, Minn. / Fergus Falls

Busack helped the Gophers to two Big Ten dual victories over the weekend against Michigan and Michigan State.  Versus the Wolverines, Busack earned two individual firsts in the 50- and the 100-yard freestyles, touching the wall in 23.63 and 50.61, respectively.  Her 100 free time was good for an NCAA ‘B’ qualifying standard.  The senior also swam a leg of the winning 400 medley relay which clocked a time of 3:45.03.  In East Lansing, Busack and three of her Gopher teammates set a new pool record in the 200 medley relay, posting a winning time of 1:43.03.  The Fergus Falls, Minn., native takes home her first weekly honor.
