Student-Athlete of the Week for February 24: Lauren Pavel, Swimming & Diving

Missouri State sophomore swimmer Lauren Pavel had an impressive four-day run at the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference Swimming and Diving Championship, as she helped the Bears win their eighth-straight conference title from Feb. 18-21 in Carbondale, Ill. The Omaha, Neb., native won three individual event titles at the meet on the campus of Southern Illinois and also was a member of a championship relay squad.

In her first individual finals event on Thursday, Feb. 19, Pavel set aschool-, pool- and MVC-record time in the 200-yard individual medley (2:02.84) to beat the competition by more than a second. She appeared in two races Friday, winning the 100-yard breaststroke in a personal-best time of 1:02.61, then swimming the second leg on the 400-yard medley relay championship-winning squad that finished in MSU's fastest time of the season (3:44.13). She continued her dominance on the final day of competition Saturday, earning the gold medal in the 200-yard breaststroke in the top time of her career (2:16.46).
