AgSouth Homegrown Athlete of the Week – Rachel Regone

Dec. 5, 2007

Rachel Regone, Women’s Swimming & Diving, Junior, Houston, TX

Regone participated in the USA Swimming Long Course Winter Nationals/ Olympic Trials on December 2, swimming a 26.38 in the 50 meter free. The time was third overall in the event, and just under the Olympic cut of 26.39. The time qualifies her for a chance to compete for a spot on the Olympic Team.

As a result of her performance, Regone will compete at the Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational in Omaha, NE in June for a spot on the US National team for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Regone has been outstanding for the Tigers so far this season, recording the fastest time in the ACC in the 50 yard free and re-setting her school record at 22.68.
