Freshman Julia Smit (Mt. Sinai, NY/Mt. Sinai) of the Stanford women's swimming team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week of Jan. 8-14.

Smit continued her outstanding rookie collegiate season by winning five individual events and a relay to lead Stanford to victories at No. 2 Arizona and No. 23 Arizona State in the team's first two Pac-10 dual meets of the season. Smit was the only person in the meet versus the Wildcats to reach the NCAA 'A' qualifying standard in an event, hitting it three times during victories in the 200 IM (1:59.47) and 200 back (1:57.46) as well as with her leadoff 100 back leg (54.33) of Stanford's winning 400 medley relay squad. Smit currently has the nation's best time in both the 200 back (1:53.95) and 400 IM (4:07.28) this season, while posting NCAA 'A' times in a total of five individual events and as a member of three relay teams, and moving into the school's list of all-time top performers in five separate individual events.

This is Smit's first Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor. Smit and the rest of the Cardinal women's swimming squad return to action Jan. 19 against UCLA at 1 p.m.
