A NOTICE…
LAST TIME-OUT:

IU handled business in his first home game of the 2022-23 season, scoring wins for both teams against No. 18/RV Missouri on Saturday (October 29) at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatics Center.

Diving had another dominant day on the springboards as three athletes teamed up to win the four disciplines. Additionally, eight IU divers earned a total of 14 NCAA zone qualification points. In the women’s, junior Anne Fowler posted season bests in both the 1-meter board (316.05) and 3-meter board (337.65), winning both events by scoring at least 400 points on each board.


Although many IU swimmers competed outside of their normal events, Hoosiers were still able to achieve individual wins and highlight achievements. Second swimmer Anna Peplowski continued her great form, winning the 50, 100 and 200 yard freestyle events. Brendan Burns showed his competitive advantage in the men’s 200 yard freestyle. Burns, who is usually a butterfly and backstroke swimmer, took on Missouri’s Jack Dahlgren, who placed 13th in that event at the 2022 NCAA Championships.



HOOSIERS NAMED TO THE USA NATIONAL SWIMMING TEAM
Six athletes with ties to Indiana’s swim and dive program were named to USA Swimming’s 2022-23 national team rosters in September. Of the six Hoosiers, five are breaststroke specialists, and on the women’s side, IU accounts for three of the nine breaststroke selections. The selection includes current Hoosiers Mariah Denigan, Mackenzie Looze and Josh Matheny and Indiana Swim Club athlete Tommy Cope, Lili King and Annie Lazor.
