“Academics are always the number one priority at Indiana University as stated in the spirit of Indiana doctrine,” IU Swimming Coach Ray Looze said in a press release from IU Athletics. “With this in mind, we are very proud of both our men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams for their outstanding work in the classroom last fall.”
