3 DUALS, 3 WINS
The Hawkeyes enter their biggest dual to date with a 3-0 record after posting victories over Illinois Chicago, Michigan State, and Northern Iowa. Minnesota won the team title at the 2015 Big Ten Championships before going on to finish 12th at the NCAA Championships last season.
SCHNEIDER CAN GO THE DISTANCE
Freshman Abbey Schneider won a pair of distance events, winning the 500 and 1,000 free, in the double header against Michigan State and Northern Iowa. The Indiana native won the 500 in 5:01.71, while posting a winning time of 10:17.48 in the 1,000. Schneider leads the team in both distance events this season.
SOUGSTAD RETURNS TO FOLD
Junior Emma Sougstad returns as the leader of the Iowa program after qualifying for the NCAA Championships in three events as a sophomore. The Forest City, Iowa, native holds school records in the 100 breast (59.96), 200 breast (2:11.20), 200 IM (1:58.74), 200-free relay (1:30.96), 200-medley relay (1:39.18), and 400-medley relay (3:38.68). She posted eight top-10 finishes at the 2015 Big Ten Championships, and finished 18th in the country in the 100 breast.
KABACINSKI IS STILL ON TOP
The Hawkeyes have their top sprinter returning to the fold in 2015-16 in senior Olivia Kabacinski. The Indiana native is the school record holder in six events — 50 free (22.70), 100 free (49.61), and 200-free relay (1:30.96), 400-free relay (3:21.07), 800-free relay (7:12.49), and 200-medley relay (1:39.18).
This season, Kabacinski is leading the Hawkeyes in the 100 free (50.98) and 200 free (1:51.69). She posted seven first place finishes in the dual against Michigan and Northern Iowa, winning five relays and two individual events.
