Indiana swimming and diving continues a tough early nonconference schedule this Friday as it travels to Knoxville, Tennessee to take on Tennessee and Kentucky in a double dual meet.
Action gets underway at the Jones Aquatic Center at 2 p.m. ET.
Both squads are coming off a weekend of competition against some of the best the NCAA has to offer in Michigan, Texas and Louisville. The Indiana men and women both posted 1-2 records last weekend, with victories over the Louisville Cardinals.
Brooklynn Snodgrass picked up her second Big Ten Swimmer of the Week honor of the season after lowering her NCAA-best times in the 100 back and 200 back to win both events. Snodgrass leads the nation with a 52.48 in the 100 backstroke and a 1:53.29 in the 200 backstroke. She also ranks among the top 10 in the 200 individual medley, taking second in the event at Michigan with a time of 1:59.62.
Freshman Kennedy Goss continues to show she will be a force in the middle distance freestyle this season, winning the 500 free with a season-best time of 4:46.92 at Michigan, and taking second in the 200 free with another season best of 1:46.01. Junior Haley Lips ranks among the top two for IU in the 200 free (1:45.85-1st), 500 free (4:47.42-2nd) and 1,000 free (9:49.38-1st).
Redshirt freshman Jessica Parratto won the 3-meter springboard at Michigan with a season-best score of 313.40.
