The accolades continue to roll in for Notre Dame freshman women's swimmer Emma Reaney, as Sports Illustrated has included her in the Jan. 16 edition of Faces In The Crowd. The weekly feature has been a part of Sports Illustrated magazine since 1956 and highlights amateur athletes around the country for their athletic feats. Through the first three months of her rookie campaign, the Lawrence, Kan., product has won 13 races either individually or as part of a relay team. In addition to the school record in the 200 IM, Reaney is only 0.17 seconds away from the school mark in the 400 IM. She has earned two BIG EAST Women's Swimming and Diving Athlete of the Week awards, becoming only the third swimmer since the award was created for the 2008-09 season to earn the accolade twice in one year. A standout in the classroom as well, Reaney turned in a 3.563 grade-point average in her first semester under the Golden Dome.
