Coach Looze was very humble in the interview above when he talked about how he thought the IU Women’s Swim Team would do this season.

Looze was pleasantly surprised when his team started to finally come together.  The IU Swim team ended up being 5-4 with huge wins over Kentucky, Michigan, Notre Dame, Purdue and Louisville.  The girls also placed second in the Big Ten Tournament behind Minnesota.  IU has won 5 of the last 11 Big Ten Championships.

This weekend is the NCAA competition for the girls held in Indianapolis.  Eleven swimmers, 2 divers and three alternates are going to be representing Indiana University.  The teams hopes for its 6th top 10 finish this weekend.  Last year, they placed 13th.

The list below shows all the athletes who will be making the short trip to Indy.
