Jan. 21, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana men closed out their Big Ten dual meet season with a victory over rival Purdue in front of a packed house at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center Saturday afternoon.
The Hoosiers took a 166-134 victory in a meet that was televised live on the Big Ten Network, the first-ever dual meet shown on the Network and the first time a swimming event has been shown live.
"It was a phenomenal meet," said head coach Ray Looze. "Our strategy was to put as many points as we could into the first part of the meet and it worked out for us. Credit to our seniors, and the divers who really came through for us."
Schmuhl took the 200 fly by more than a body length in 1:47.73. Shedron was third (1:51.11) and Sam Trahin fourth (1:51.70). Daniel Kanorr's fifth-place time of 20.78 in the 50 free was tops for Indiana, with Andrew Taylor sixth (21.66).
