No. 6/12 Indiana Completes Solid Week at Fall Invite

    0

    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Indiana swimming and diving completed a strong showing at the Ohio State Fall Invitational, highlighted by a first-place finish in the men’s competition Saturday (Nov. 20) at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion.

    A wire-to-wire win, Indiana dominated the meet with 2,830 total points over the three-day event, 547 points better than the next-best team, host Ohio State (2283).

    “The men won this competition convincingly, but we have a lot of work to do on relays as well,” Indiana head swimming coach Ray Looze said. “When one man goes down, another needs to step up and get the job done. This team has superior depth but needs to have a better idea what a championship mentality really entails. We must demand excellence of ourselves at all times.”

    Indiana’s women’s team (2023 points) kept the margins close all three days but settled for a third-place finish behind Ohio State (2258) and Kentucky (2198).

    “We got a good taste of what it will be like in a three-team battle at the Big Ten Championships in February,” Looze said. “Although we came out on the short end of the stick, our women gained valuable experience which we will use to take the next steps as a program. An important goal in our next several dual meets will be winning relays. We came close this weekend but need to breakthrough in this valuable area.”

    On the weekend, Indiana diving won all three men’s events and sophomore diver Anne Fowler finished second in the 1-meter and 3-meter dives.

    “It was a great weekend for Hoosier diving,” IU head diving coach Drew Johansen said. “The entire team had strong performances. It was a nice return for Andrew Capobianco in all three events, and Carson Tyler had a standout performance in the platform today.

    “Anne Fowler continued to position herself as a top performer in the Big Ten and nationally against some of the best women’s programs in the country. We were also excited to see Kristen Hayden in her first showing as a Hoosier.”
