Snodgrass earns 2 Big Ten honors this week

After dominating her events at a dual meet against the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette this past weekend, freshman Brooklyn Snodgrass has earned Big Ten Swimmer of the Week and Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors.

Currently, the Hoosier swimmer has two Big Ten Swimmer of the Week awards and has clinched the Big Ten Freshman of the Week title three times.

“It feels awesome to be recognized by the Big Ten, especially as a freshman,” Snodgrass said. “I am just happy I am swimming well and am able to score points for my team.

“Performing for my teammates is by biggest concern. Five Big Ten awards are just icing on the cake.”

In IU’s 179-121 win against Purdue last Saturday, Snodgrass touched the wall in both the 100- and 200-yard backstroke events with NCAA provisional qualifying times, 53.73 and 1:55.48 respectively. This season, Snodgrass claims top times in the Big Ten for both events.

She also posted wins in the 200-yard individual medley (2:03.50) and the 200-yard medley relay (1:41.67).

Snodgrass and the rest of the Indiana women will finish up the 2012-13 dual season this Friday when they compete against No. 17 Louisville.
