Missouri Valley Conference Swimmers of the Week

Jill Enge, Sr., Evansville, Edmond, Okla.

Aces senior Jill Enge helped UE pick up a 196-184 win over Eastern Illinois on Saturday while taking the top spot in a pair of events. She led her team to a victory in the 800-yard medley with a time of 8:54.41 before grabbing a win in the 300-yard breaststroke relay. Enge led the team to a winning time of 3:25.57 in that event.

Andrea Uzcategui, Sr., Missouri State, Caracas, Venezuela

Senior Andrea Uzcategui was one of the Bears' top swimmers in a loaded field at the University of Incarnate Word Christmas Invitational this weekend.

The Caracas, Venezuela native was a key contributor outside of her individual events, swimming on Missouri State's A-Relay for the 200 free, 400 medley, 800 free and 400 free relays.

Individually, she started the meet off by making it back to finals in the 50 free. She was Missouri State's top finisher in the event and placed 20th overall with her time of 24.81. On Sunday, she doubled up with two individual events, swimming in the preliminaries of the 100 fly (25th), paired with a D-Final appearance in the 200 free.

Uzcategui saved her top swim for the final day of competition. She qualified for the B-Final in the 100 free (53.05) and moved up three spots to 12th place during the last session of the UIW Christmas Invitational.
