In its final team meet of the season, the No. 13 IU women’s swimming and diving team placed tenth in this weekend’s NCAA Swim and Dive Championships at College Station, Texas.
 
The Hoosiers accumulated 152 points, the program’s highest point total in an NCAA meet. With 411.5 points, No. 9 California took first, closely trailed by No. 2 Georgia and defending champion No. 4 Arizona.
 
Led by Christina Loukas’ NCAA Championship-winning performance on the 3-meter springboards, IU had eight individual, as well as three relay All-American winners.
 
“I’m so happy we brought such a powerful and large team. We’re hungry people and are aggressive and want more regardless of how we do,” head coach Ray Looze said. “I’m happy for the girls who worked really hard. Even though at times the meet was a bit rocky for us, the girls responded to adversity really well.”
