Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week

March 3, 2008

BERKELEY - Lauren Boyle broke a 20-year school record en route to winning the Pac-10 Championship in the 1650-yard freestyle Sunday at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool in Long, earn the sophomore the honor of Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.

Boyle smashed the longstanding record - previously held by Sarah Anderson, who swam the 1650 free in 16:10.33 back in 1988 - by nearly seven seconds at 16:03.51, two seconds ahead of second-place finisher Elizabeth Durot from Stanford. Boyle really separated herself from the pack in the 11th 50-yard split at a blistering 29.07 clip.

This was a lifetime best for Boyle, whose previous best in the 1650 was 16:23.98 at the U.S. Short Course National Championships in Atlanta on Nov. 29. Boyle's victory also signified the fist time since 1989 (Anderson) that Cal has won the 1650 free at the conference championships.
