OF NOTE…
LAST TIME OUT:

IU took care of business in its first home meet of the 2022-23 season, earning wins for both teams against No. 18/RV Missouri on Saturday (Oct. 29) inside Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatics Center.

Diving had another dominant day on the springboards, with three athletes combining to sweep the four events. Additionally, eight IU divers totaled 14 NCAA zone qualifying marks. For the women, junior Anne Fowler posted season highs on both the 1-meter (316.05) and 3-meter (337.65) boards to win both events. Sophomores Quinn Henninger and Carson Tyler were each other’s toughest competition in the men’s diving events, both scoring at least 400 points on each board.

Despite many IU swimmers competing outside of their normal events, Hoosiers were still able to pull off individual wins and highlight performances. Sophomore swimmer Anna Peplowski continued her great run of form, winning the 50, 100 and 200-yard freestyle events. Brendan Burns showed his competitive edge in the men’s 200-yard freestyle. Normally a butterfly and backstroke swimmer, Burns faced up against Missouri’s Jack Dahlgren, who finished 13th in this event at the 2022 NCAA Championships.

HOOSIERS NAMED TO USA SWIMMING NATIONAL TEAM
Six athletes with ties to the Indiana swimming and diving 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 makes up three of the nine breaststroke selections. The selections include current Hoosiers Mariah Denigan, Mackenzie Looze and Josh Matheny as well as Indiana Swim Club athlete Tommy Cope, Lilly King and Annie Lazor.
