U H Manoa swimmer Laticia Transom

For the third time this season, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa swimmer Laticia Transom took home Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Female Athlete of the Week honors after contributing to a pair of school relay records and six wins at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Quad Meet, January 27—28.

Transom swam the opening legs of both the 200 free relay and 200 medley relay, helping the Rainbow Wahine set program records in both events. She began the 200 free relay with a 22.39 to help UH break the record they set earlier this year with a 1:29.53, before starting the 200 medley relay with a 24.29 in the backstroke to set the pace for a time of 1:37.71 making it the third different relay record the Rainbow Wahine have broken this year.

She also helped the Rainbow Wahine claim victories in the 400 medley relay and the 400 free relay while picking up individual wins in the 100 and 200 free. Transom opened the 400 medley relay with a 52.31 in the backstroke to set the pace for a 3:36.46 before swimming a 50.56 on leg two of the 400 free relay, helping UH win the event by nearly eight seconds with a 3:16.83. She also took home wins in the 100 and 200 free, swimming a 48.86 in the 100 free before clocking a 1:45.25 in the 200 to win by more than five seconds.

Transom has had one of the best seasons in school history heading into the MPSF Championships, sitting in the top five in program history in five different events (50, 100, 200 free, 100 fly, 100 back) while also owning National Collegiate Athletic Association B cut times in each of those. She also holds the top times in the MPSF in those five individual events while contributing to conference-leading marks in each of the relays.
