Indiana University has officially established itself as a swimming powerhouse. The Hoosiers recently captured the men’s swimming championship for the Big 10. This is the second straight year they have accomplished this feat. The last time that the school did this was 32 years ago. Most people think of the great basketball teams coached by Bobby Knight when they think about Indiana University sports. However, the swimming program has already become a force to be reckoned with in the NCAA. The University of Michigan made it close for a while. However, the Hoosiers eventually pulled away to secure the victory.
Indiana University has placed a priority on their swimming program in recent years. They have donated a great deal of financial resources to recruiting some of the best swimming talent in the country. This strategy has paid off in a big way the past couple of years. Now they will begin their quest to capture the title for three years in a row. It will be a daunting task. There is a lot of great talent that is coming into the Big 10. Some of the other schools will be improved by the time the next swimming season starts. However, they will all have their work cut out for them in order to beat the Hoosiers.
Indiana was actually trailing in the event for a period of time. However, Indiana was able to rally and make an impressive comeback in order to take the title. Members of the team had little doubt they would win.
