Texas swimmer Laura Sogar was named <a href=""><em></em></a>’s Division I swimmer of the week on Wednesday for her performance last weekend in a meet at California.

Sogar won the 100-meter backstroke in 1:00.97 and the 200-meter backstroke in 2:10.15, a new Texas record and the fastest time of the season in that event by nearly three seconds.

She also finished second in the 400-meter individual medley as the Longhorns defeated Cal in their season opener.

Sogar returns to the pool Oct. 29 when Texas travels to Bloomington, Ind., to face Michigan and Indiana in a dual meet.
