The Knoch High School senior has been the reigning YMCA national record-holder in the 100 meter backstroke for the last three years. She first established the mark at 1:02.68 in 2014, lowered it to 1:02.54 in 2015, and then again to 1:02.14 this past summer. Her 2016 performance was especially gratifying, after having had a disappointing race at Olympic Trials in June. Forbes also swam the 200 back at Trials; she earned new PBs in both distances at YMCA Summer Nationals. Forbes’ top times include:
Forbes will add firepower to the Hoosiers’ talent pool in backstroke as soon as she suits up. Both her 100 and 200 back times would have been B-final scorers at 2016 B1G Championships, and she will be a great addition to a workout group that already includes Kennedy Goss, Marie Chamberlain, Alexandra Rockett, and Rachel Matsumura, all of whom will be seniors in 2017-18.
