GREENSBORO, N.C.—Virginia junior swimmer Rachel Naurath has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Female Swimmer of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday (Oct. 30).
A native of Manakin-Sabot, Va., Naurath led the Cavaliers to two wins over the weekend, winning five individual events and one relay in the process. In her season-opening meet against Navy on Friday (Oct. 26), the junior earned NCAA B times in the 200 free (1:47.76) and the 200 fly (1:58.30). Against the Midshipmen, Naurath posted the ninth-fastest time in the country in the 200 free, the sixth fastest in the 500 free (4:48.52), and the fourth fastest in the 200 fly. She also anchored the 400 free relay that touched first in 3:26.84.
