Vose Named Pac-12 Swimmer Of The Month For December

    Jan. 6, 2016

    Freshman Kirsten Vose, who enjoyed a strong string of days at last month's Texas Invitational, was named Pac-12 Women’s Swimmer of the Month for December the Conference office announced Wednesday.

    Vose, a La Cañada, Calif., native, made an impact on the Trojan squad last month in Austin, winning two individual titles and helped USC to two relay victories. The freshman won both the 100y and 200y breaststrokes, in times of 59.58 and 2:07.46, respectively. Both times were her personal bests.

    She also took second in the 200y IM and reached the finals of the 100y and 200y freestyle events. Additionally, she led off USC’s winning 400-yard freestyle relay and swam in the victorious 400-yard medley relay. Both relays posted NCAA ‘A’ cuts and were near school records.

    This is the first-career Swimmer of the Month honor for Vose and USC’s 10th all-time monthly nod.
