    DIVERS PUSH HOOSIERS OVER BEARCATS

    Saturday afternoon at the Counsilman/Billingsley Aquatic Center, the Indiana swim team defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats in a close meet, 123-118. The victory was the Hoosiers third consecutive dual meet win and put their overall record at 4-1. Once again, the Hoosiers used depth and diving to win the meet. Head Coach Kris Kirchner commented, "Depth helped us and diving put us over the edge. To be a great team, you have to have all the parts and in the last three meets we've had them."

    A strong Cincinnati front line led them to nine first-place finishes in the swimming events. The two winners for the Hoosiers were Ken Ackermann in the 100 backstroke and Rob Iglinski in the 100 breaststroke. Ackermann won in :50.71, the fastest time this year, and Iglinski in :58.19. Throughout the meet the Hoosiers stayed within striking distance with second, third, and fourth places in the 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, and 500 freestyle.

    The diving Hoosiers outscored the Cincinnati divers 32-4 to put the Hoosiers ahead with two events left. Tom Davidson placed first on both springboards with scores of 311.77 on the one-meter and 322.05 on the three-meter.

    This weekend, Indiana has two important Big Ten meets starting Friday evening at Michigan State. On Saturday, the Hoosiers will swim Michigan at noon. The next home meet will be against the Purdue Boilermakers on February 7 at the Counsilman/Billingsley Aquatic Center.
