Brooklynn Snodgrass Named Alberta Junior Swimmer of the Year

Indiana sophomore Brooklynn Snodgrass has been named the 2013 Alberta Junior Swimmer of the Year on the basis of her 1:00.98 at the 2013 World Championship Trials in the 100 long course meter backstroke.

This annual award is given to the swimmer (and coach of record) who put up the single swim that scored the highest on the FINA points scale and was 18 & under at the time of the swim. Snodgrass turned 19 on April 19th, just after Trials, so this swim was eligible.

She finished 3rd at the 2013 NCAA Championships in the 100 yard backstroke with a 51.52 and also placed 7th in the 200 with a 1:52.12. She was also the Big Ten Champion in both the 100 and 200 backstrokes, and represented Canada at the 2013 World University Games, where she made the semi-finals in the 100 backstroke.

She was not able to attend the ceremony over the weekend to receive her award in person because of conflicts as she begins her sophomore year with the Hoosiers and head coach Ray Looze.

Her home club in Canada is the Cascade Swim Club, where she swims under Dave Johnson.
