LAWRENCE, Kan. – After the first weekend of competition in 2018-19, Kansas swimmer Jenny Nusbaum was recognized by the Big 12 as the Swimmer of the Week as announced by the league on Wednesday afternoon.

The junior touched the wall first in three different events for the Jayhawks and aided in victories in three relay events last weekend, as Nusbaum helped Kansas open the season with a win over Missouri State and South Dakota at the Double Dual.

During the final day of the double dual, Nusbaum recorded first-place finishes in the 100-yard freestyle, the 500-yard freestyle, the 200-yard freestyle relay and the 400-yard freestyle relay.
