5 Storylines From the Week That Was in the Big Ten

5 Storylines From the Week That Was in the Big Ten

By Andy Ross, Swimming World Big Ten Beat Writer

We are two and a half weeks until the start of the Women’s Big Ten Championships and three and a half for the men. Most teams finished up competing for the regular season this past weekend with the exception of a few. The swimmers will be starting to rest and fine tune this week if they haven’t already. As we finish up January and head into February and championship season, here are a few things that we learned over the weekend.

Michigan once again staked its claim as the team to beat at the men’s and women’s meets. The Michigan women gained another international as Rose Bi joined the Wolverines in January from China. She won the 1000 against Ohio State with a 9:42.32, which is already first in the conference and fourth in the nation in that event. Bi also went 1:47.98 in the 200 free and 4:45.40 in the 500 which put her 19th and 10th in the conference respectively. Those are pretty good considering she already has a B cut in the 500 and she is ranked high comparative to her conference compatriots that were suited at their respective mid-season invitationals. The women have a strong core of underclassmen and will be hosting Big Tens, so they will be dangerous. The men were impressive as usual picking up a relative easy win over Ohio State. They will be looking to pick up their sixth straight conference crown in West Lafayette.

The Minnesota picked up solid conference wins over Northwestern and Purdue but look vulnerable. The four-time defending conference champs will have their hands full with Indiana, Wisconsin and host Michigan. But, you can never count out the Gophers. They have a solid young team, just like Michigan, and they are here to stay on top for the years to come.
