Impressive win for women’s swimming and diving
No. 22 Indiana defeated No. 19 Notre Dame 175-125 in a dual meet Saturday.
There were many standouts from this event to watch the rest of the season.
Freshmen swimmers Taylor O’Brien and Haley Lips finished 1-2 in the 1,000m freestyle.
Freshman swimmer Brooklyn Snodgrass finished first in the 100m and 200m backstroke and was a crucial member of the winning 200m medley relay team.
The strength of the freshman class really stepped up in one of the first major events of 2013.
Give credit to head coach Ray Looze for recruiting an excellent freshman class that is already paying dividends in competition.
Another standout from this weekend’s competition includes junior swimmer Lindsey Vrooman, who won the 200m and 500m freestyle events.
This squad is showing that they have depth throughout its roster, which should help them down the road.
It doesn’t seem youth will be an issue with the team in future meets.
Men’s swimming and diving continue their success
No. 10 Indiana won both of its Big Ten meets against No. 6 Ohio State and No. 18 Iowa at home.
Junior swimmer James Wells won the 100m backstroke event while senior Daniel
Kanorr topped all swimmers in the 50m freestyle.
Not only were both wins, but also NCAA B Cut times.
The Hoosiers also had success off the diving board.
Indiana took the top four spots in the 1-meter springboard event.
Junior diver DarianSchmidt placed second and then easily topped all of the other divers with an almost 60-point victory in the 3-meter event.
His score of 460.20 set the IU record.
Both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams did a good job of winning at their home pools against good competition.
Those teams deserve the support of students because of how highly ranked they are on the national level.
Tandon Doss in the Super Bowl
Congratulations to Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and former Hoosier Tandon Doss for making it to the Super Bowl.
He was a spectacular receiver for IU during the 2008-10 seasons, becoming the 16th Hoosier to have at least 100 career receptions and 1,000 career yards.
This season, Doss recorded seven catches for 123 receiving yards and one touchdown in 17 games
Although those numbers aren’t amazing, he is starting to become a useful option for Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
Doss is the fourth consecutive former IU player to make the Super Bowl.
Hopefully, the Ravens win and Doss earns his first Super Bowl ring.
