Freshman Named Female Athlete of the Year in Manitoba
Breanne has also been honored at B1G Freshman of the Week three times this year.

Jan. 29, 2014

Winnipeg, Manitoba native Breanne Siwicki was named ‘Female Athlete of the Year’ for the Canadian province.

Her efforts were noticed during the Canada Summer Games when she broke the Games’ record by 11.5 seconds in the 1500-meter freestyle. She also took home two silver medals during her 200-meter and 500-meter fly events, as well as three bronze medals.

Siwicki stated, “It’s very exciting… against such great competition.” The male counterpart to this award is the Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.

In her freshman season for the Golden Gophers, Breanne is a freestyle and IM swimmer. She has been recognized with the B1G ‘Freshman of the Week’ honor three times so far this season. Siwicki currently holds the team’s top time in the 400-yard IM with a 4:13.40.

Her favorite moments of being a part of the Minnesota program so far have been racing in dual meets and having a new training atmosphere.

Breanne’s goal for the year is to preform well at the B1G Women’s Championships that will be held in Minneapolis, Minn. February 19-22.
