Gonzales Named WAC Swimmer Of The Week

Dec. 5, 2017

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Brad Gonzales, a freshman on the UNLV men's swimming team, picked up a pair of weekly conference honors on Tuesday following a record-breaking performance this past weekend at the Texas Hall of Fame Swimming Invitational, held in Austin, Texas. The Cypress, California native was named the WAC Men's Swimmer of the Week, the league office announced on Tuesday morning, and also was selected as the Collegeswimming.com's WAC Swimmer of the Week as well.

Gonzales provided the highlight of the weekend for the Rebels in the four-day meet, as he set a pair of school records thanks to his third place time of 14:46.31 in the 1650 free. That time broke the previous school record by over six seconds, and is the sixth fastest time in the nation this season, while is a NCAA 'B' provisional time as well.

NEXT FOR THE REBELS: The Rebels are off for the rest of the fall semester, and will return to competition in 2018, with a pair of meets at UC Santa Barbara on Jan. 12-13.
