Denver --- Julia Craddock has been named the Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Week for November 12- 18.
Craddock, a senior from Litchfield Park, Ariz. (Millennium H.S.), set two school records in the 200 IM and the 400 IM, as San Jose State placed fifth overall in the Arena Invitational. Craddock broke the 200 IM record first in a preliminary heat with a 2:01.92 and came back in the championship final with a seventh-place finish and again with a better time of 2:01.91.
She notched her second SJSU record in the meet with a NCAA Division I B-cut qualifying time of 4:17.55 in the 400 IM. Her fourth-place finish was the best by a Spartan in the Invitational meet that included two top 25 ranked teams. Craddock was the only San Jose State swimmer to compete in three individual championship finals with a sixth-place finish in the 200 butterfly. She set a new season and career best with a time of 1:59.92.
Craddock helped add to the Spartans 654 points by swimming the third leg of the 400 freestyle relay (6th, 3:21.80) and the lead leg of the 800 freestyle relay (5th, 7:26.44).
