Three swimmers named to USA team

Three current and former IU swimmers were selected for the 2014-15 USA Swimming National Team, the organization announced Tuesday.

Sophomore Gia Dalesandro, a first-time national team member, earned her spot on the team in the 100-meter butterfly. Her time of 58.99 in the event at the USA Swimming national meet last month was a new school record.

Joining Dalesandro on the women’s team is Lindsay Vrooman, who completed her final season as a Hoosier in the spring.

She made the team in the 400-meter freestyle and 800-meter freestyle. Vrooman clocked in at 4:07.82 in the 400 free at last month’s meet and went 8:29.06 in the 800 free.

The former Hoosier also earned a spot on the 2013-14 National team in the 400-meter freestyle.

Cody Miller made the men’s team for the second consecutive year and will compete in the 100- and 200-meter breaststrokes. Miller went 59.91 in the 100 breaststroke at last month’s meet to win his first senior national title.

That race also earned Miller a spot on the 2015 World Championships team and a trip to the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships.

He posted a time of 2:11.28 in the 200 breaststroke at the USA Swimming national meet.
