Soni Pac-10 Women's Swimmer Of The Month For February
March 5, 2008
USC junior Rebecca Soni, who won a pair of Pac-10 breaststroke titles at the recently completed conference championships, was tabbed the Pac-10 Women's Swimmer of the Month, the conference announced on Wednesday (March 5).
Soni, from Plainsboro, N.J., was named Swimmer of the Meet at the Pac-10 Championship after winning the 100y and 200y breaststroke in dominant fashion.
Soni broke her own NCAA record in the 200y breast by almost one second, winning with a time of 2:06.11. She also won the 100y breast with a time of 58.98, well under her previous school mark. It was her second career conference titles in both races and both times are tops in the country.
The junior will look to claim her third career NCAA title in the 200y breast and first in the 100y breast later this month.
