Bishop is Big 12 swimmer of week


Kansas freshman Haley Bishop has been named’s Big 12 Swimmer of the Week.

A month ago Bishop was the Blue squad’s sleeper pick in the annual preseason intrasquad scrimmage with wins in two races. Two weeks ago she was a rookie turning in a pair of runner-up finishes in the season-opening double-dual split with Denver and Missouri State. Then on Tuesday, she was tabbed’s Big 12 Swimmer of the Week, having claimed two more individual event wins and having contributed to two relay wins in Kansas’ road rout of TCU.

It took no time for the Apex, North Carolina, native to adjust to collegiate swimming as she joined Kansas senior Chelsie Miller as the second-consecutive Jayhawk to receive the weekly honor in KU’s second week of competition. Bishop found herself leading the pool in every race she competed in during last Saturday’s dual against Big 12 rival TCU At 2-1 on the season after cruising past TCU, Kansas returns to Robinson Natatorium for a dual meet against Big 10 foe Nebraska (3-1), Friday at 5 p.m. The Huskers enter the meet having won three straight match-ups.
