As diving coach Mike Hilde’s diving program gets bigger, it gets stronger too.
The Michigan swimming and diving team — on both the men’s and the women’s side — has a long and rich tradition of training swimmers to compete not only as a Wolverine on the collegiate level, but also at the highest level in the world: the Olympics.
Michigan made a splash, winning the meet by a score of 203-91. Nine different swimmers and divers claimed wins across 13 individual events, and the Wolverines won both relays.
Of the three divers, only Murphy will be making her second appearance at the Championship meet.
The Wolverines recorded 47 career bests and 10 new school records en route to winning their 16th Big Ten title with a total of 1,287 points.
Mokhtar Al-Yamani just wants to see his dad and swim for his country, but with one executive order on Jan. 27, President Donald Trump put both efforts in jeopardy.
Determination, it seems, runs through Bi’s veins.
The Wolverines broke several school and conference records — a good sign for a team that is aiming to add to its a Big Ten championship season from last year.
This weekend, swimmers from the conference formed a collective team and faced select members of Team USA in the USA College Challenge.
The No. 6 Michigan men’s swimming team has not lost a dual meet in 55 attempts, and that streak remained alive and well this weekend.
