SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Senior swimmer Anne Marie May was named the UCSBgauchos.com/Golden I Gaucho of the Week. May represented UC Santa Barbara last week at the 2009 AT&T Short Course National Championships in Washington.
During the meet, May competed in the finals for both the 50 and 100 freestyle. She finished fifth in the 50 freestyle with a time of 22.52, which is a season-best mark and meets the "B" qualifying standard for the 2010 NCAA Championships.
In the 100 free, May placed sixth with a mark of 49.21, another "B" qualifying standard. Both her 50 and 100 free times are the top marks by a Big West swimmer this season.
Additionally at the short course meet, she competed in the 100 breaststroke and finished in 1:04.74, the third fastest time among conference swimmers this year.
