    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A silver medal in the 1,650 freestyle for senior Lindsay Vrooman, a bronze for sophomore Brooklynn Snodgrass in the 200 backstroke and a school record in the women's 400 freestyle relay highlighted the day for Indiana swimming and diving on the final day of competition at the AT&T USA Swimming Winter Nationals at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn.
