Indiana swimming and diving had another championship season during the 2022-23 cycle. The Hoosier men won the Big Ten for a second-straight year and the fifth time in seven years before capturing a fourth-place finish nationally. IU’s women recorded a program-record seventh-place performance at the NCAA Championships. Divers Andrew Capobianco and Carson Tyler won individual NCAA titles on the 3-meter board and platform diving events, respectively, as IU men’s diving scored 104 points at the NCAA meet. Brendan Burns won a national title for a second consecutive year, this time in the 100-yard backstroke.

Fifteen individuals with ties to the IU swimming and diving program competed at the 2023 World Aquatics Championships, totaling nine medals and four world titles. Ahmed Hafnaoui, entering his freshman season after training a season at IU, won titles in the 800-meter and 1,500-meter freestyle events and took silver in the 400.

Five swimmers with ties to the Indiana swimming and diving program were named to the 2023-24 U.S. National Team in September. The roster includes two members of IU’s current roster – juniors Mariah Denigan (a member of USA Swimming’s open water team) and Josh Matheny. Indiana Swim Club’s Lilly King, Annie Lazor and Cody Miller are also represented. All four of the pool swimmers specialize in breaststroke events.

If the Hoosiers concede a loss, I will cover myself head to toe in mayonnaise and sing the Kentucky fight song from the peak of the nearest mountain.

Indiana. Cal. Texas. Arizona State. Braden Keith used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace when Guerra kept balance between the Hoosiers tribe, da Bears, Longhorn Nation, and the Sun Devils. But that all changed when Leon Marchand attacked. Only Guerra had mastered all four elements. Only he could stop the ruthless sun devils. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years have passed and Arizona State is nearing victory in the War. Two years ago, my father and the men of my tribe journeyed to Swimswam to help fight against Weinstein-Smith-Ledecky-Sims, leaving me and my brother to look after our tribe. Some people believe that Guerra was never reborn into… Read more »
