Snodgrass named Alberta International Swimmer of the Year

Junior swimmer Brooklynn Snodgrass was named the Alberta International Female Swimmer of the Year at the Swim Alberta Awards Banquet on ?Saturday.

Snodgrass was selected after her performance as a member of the Canada National team this summer.

She won a bronze medal in the 400 medley relay at the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships in Australia.

Snodgrass also competed in Glasgow, Scotland, at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, earning bronze in the 50-meter backstroke this past ?summer.

A summer of international competition followed Snodgrass’ sophomore year at IU, where she won the National Title in the 200-yard backstroke, making her just the second NCAA Champion in the history of IU women’s swimming.

The now-junior is reigning Big Ten Champion in the 100-yard and 200-yard backstroke, which earned her 2014 Big Ten Swimmer of the Year.

This year Snodgrass will anchor a backstroke group that had five of the top seven finishes in the 200-yard backstroke at last year’s Big Ten conference meet.

The Hoosiers open the 2014-15 swimming season at home against Auburn on Oct. 10.
