2013-14 (Outlook)
Shannon Guy enters 2013-14 looking to cap an outstanding four-year Husker career. The senior butterfly and freestyle specialist has amassed 45 top-five finishes, including 15 victories, in three years with the squad. In 2012-13, Guy was a part of five school-record performances, and she will attempt to add even more to her legacy in her final season at Nebraska.

2012-13 (Junior)
Guy swam her way to 17 top-five finishes and six event titles in 2012-13 to continue her brilliant Husker career. She swam a career-best 53.23 in the 100-yard butterfly at the Big Ten Championships to set a school record in the event. Guy came away with fifth place, marking the highest Husker finish in two years of competition at the meet. She also set a career-best time of 23.17 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle at the conference meet, finishing 25th. Guy’s individual efforts contributed to four record-setting relay teams at the 2013 Big Ten Championships. Along with Hayley Martin, Taryn Collura and Ariel Weech, Guy helped set school records in the 200-yard freestyle relay (1:30.11), 400-yard freestyle relay (3:18.10), and 200-yard medley relay (1:39.13). In the 400-yard medley relay, Guy, Martin, Weech and Ashley Reiter set a school-record time of 3:39.36.

In the classroom, Guy garnered her second-straight academic All-Big Ten honors in 2013, while also earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in both semesters.

2011-12 (Sophomore)
Guy continued to build a solid Husker career as a sophomore. The Omaha, Neb., native competed in seven different events for the Huskers, earning 13 top-five finishes on the year, including five victories. Guy put herself into the No. 2 spot in the Husker record books, finishing the 100-yard butterfly in 54.23 and taking 11th at the 2012 Big Ten Championships. The butterfly and breaststroke specialist also set a personal-best time of 2:00.63 in the 200-yard butterfly at the Big Ten Championships. Following her sophomore season, Guy participated at the U.S. Olympic Trials at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.

A stellar performer in the classroom, Guy captured honorable-mention CSCAA Scholastic All-America accolades after earning recognition as a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar. She was also an academic All-Big Ten selection in 2012 and named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in both the fall semester of 2011 and spring semester of 2012.

2010-11 (Freshman)
Guy made an immediate impact for the Huskers in 2010-11, amassing 15 top-five finishes as a freshman, including four victories. All of her wins came in the 100-yard butterfly, although she notched her fastest time (54.54) in a 12th-place showing at the 2011 Big 12 Championships. Guy was also a member of the 200- and 400-yard medley relay squads that set multiple records at the Big 12 Championships, including what was then the fastest 200-yard medley relay in school history (1:41.08).

Guy was selected to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in both the fall and spring semesters of 2010-11.

Guy continued a strong tradition of Millard West graduates who attended Nebraska, following in the footsteps of former Huskers Kaitlin Arntz and C.J. Bray. Guy was a four-time state champion in the 100-yard butterly and captured three Nebraska state titles in the 100-yard breaststroke. She holds the Nebraska high school record in the 100-yard butterfly and was the Midwestern Swimming record holder in the 100 fly (short course and long course). Guy was also the 100 fly champion at the 2010 Speedo Sectional Championship.
