The Big Ten announced Tuesday afternoon that Indiana All-American Lindsay Vrooman, a junior who posted third- and fifth-place finishes at the NCAA championships, is the 2013 conference swimmer of the year, the second straight time a Hoosier has earned the honor. Here is IU’s press release:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — For the second year in a row, an Indiana swimmer has taken home Big Ten Swimmer of the Year honors, with junior Lindsay Vrooman capturing the award for 2013, the Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday.

Vrooman is coming off an NCAA Championships last week where she finished third in the 1,650 freestyle and fifth in the 500 freestyle. She posted a time of 15:50.83 in the mile to earn All-America honors, breaking her own school record of 15:51.20 set just last month at the Big Ten Championships. Vrooman’s time of 4:36.41 in the 500 freestyle was another All-American performance and the second-fastest time in school history. She set the school mark of 4:35.41 en route to the Big Ten title last month.

“The entire Indiana coaching staff is humbled to have Lindsay Vrooman named the Big Ten Swimmer of the Year,” said head coach Ray Looze. “Not only is she one of our captains but has been a rock of consistency over the course of the season.  Her work ethic, kindness, and selfless contribution to our squad cannot be measured adequately.  What we most admire in her is the total determination she displays in all aspects of her life.  This trait will serve her well into the future.”

Named Swimmer of the Championships at the conference meet in February, Vrooman won Big Ten titles in the 1,650 free, 500 free and 800 free relay. She set a new Big Ten meet record in the 1,650 free, new Big Ten record in the 500 free and helped the Hoosiers to a new Big Ten record of 6:59.48 in the 800 free relay. Vrooman joins Allysa Vavra (2012), Kate Fesenko (2009, 2010) and Susan Woessner (2002) as Hoosiers who have been named Big Ten Swimmer of the Year.

Chet and Geoff, you guys are great. All anyone has to do is ask and you will tell them. You both post your genius blogs referring to Buss. Buss is a young woman who will be entrering IU in 2015. You guys are really great! Your excitement to prove your superiority keeps on working. Chet, “you know it only takes one.” Perhaps you are the one who has serious issues.

By the way, the answer is “Patterson”, not Buss. Keep up the good work!

^Perfect example of why you shouldn’t jump in when you don’t know what you are talking about. Patterson goes by ‘Buss’.
