Haley Rowley named Mountain West Swimmer of the Year

Colorado State junior swimmer Haley Rowley was named Mountain West Swimmer of the Year, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon.

Rowley added the Swimmer of the Year to her collection of awards this year to go along with her Swimmer of the Meet award at the Mountain West Championship in February.


Rowley is the second CSU swimmer to receive the recognition after Kristin Schneider won the award in the 2003-04 season.

“I am overwhelmed with emotion,” Rowley said in a statement. “I am incredibly honored to receive this award. To me, it is more than just an award, but a testament to overcoming adversity and rising above in the end. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by such a caring and understanding team and coaching staff. The support that CSU athletics has provided me in my unexpected time of need and struggle was unparalleled and helped propel me to such a shocking and successful season. This whole season has truly inspired a whole new perspective and awakening within myself that I cannot wait to share with my teammates going into my senior year. I feel now that anything is possible for the Rams.”

Rowley herself broke four CSU team records during the 2017-18 season and was a member of the record-setting relay team at the MW Championships.

Rowley’s accomplishments helped lead CSU to its most successful season since the 2009-10 season. The Rams finished the year with an 8-3 dual meet record and placed fifth in the Mountain West Championships.
