Indiana Women Capture Another NCAA ‘A’ Cut

Indiana kicked off tonight’s session exactly as they did last night. In a dominating win in the 200 medley relay, Anna Peplowski (24.61), Mac Looze (27.14), Elizabeth Broshears (22.96), and Kristina Paegle (21.27), combined for a time of 1:35.98. This marks the women’s third NCAA ‘A’ cut of the meet, earning them another automatic bid to the meet in March.

The Indiana men also opened the night with a win in the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:24.09, but did not capture the NCAA ‘A’ cut of 1:23.76. Virginia Tech was close behind for second with a 1:24.21.

Youssef Ramadan Clocks Top Time From B-Final

After missing the A-final this morning by a tenth, Virginia Tech’s Youssef Ramadan rallied tonight to post the top time of the meet from the B-final. With a time of 45.13, Ramadan edged Ohio State’s Alex Quach by one one-hundredth.

Indiana went 2-3-4 in this event, with Brendan Burns taking second in the A-final behind Quach in a time of 45.81. He was followed by Finn Brooks (45.88) and Tomer Frankel (46.10).

Heard that a raccoon got loose on the pool deck in the morning, causing quite a ruckus. Wondering how this affected today’s swims?

Would just like to add that the women’s Ohio State ‘A’ 200 medley relay would have won if there not have been a DQ. Wouldn’t necessarily call it a “dominating win.”

It’s so hot in there and the air quality is poor. I think they want to force us to buy more of their $5 bottles of water. If you try to refill your water bottle at the water fountain you might get chased down by one of the workers. I understand they want to make some money but $5 is ridiculous.
