Nikki Longland and Erin Fuss were honored in the 2012-13 College Swimming and Diving Honors, a publication that recognizes the best in collegiate swim and dive in a host of categories.
Longland was listed as one of the best walk-on athletes in the country, while Fuss was named in the special honors section of the annual publication. Longland, a junior and native of Sparks, Nevada, will return to the Pack for her senior season in 2013-14. Fuss has only competed in one full season for Nevada and will be a sophomore next year.

A versatile swimmer, she also dropped more than seven seconds off her 200-yard breaststroke time at the season-ending event, swimming a 2:18.39 in San Antonio. Fuss lowered her personal best in three events in her freshman season, making the biggest improvement in the 200 IM. She went from 2:18.17 to 2:07.62.
