SwimSwam Podcast: Iowa Swim/Dive on Being Cut

August 29, 2020

We sat down with former Iowa swimmer and coach Emma Sougstad and current Iowa senior Sage Ohlensehlen to discuss Iowa cutting it's swimming and diving programs. The duo described Iowa's program history and what the program has done for them as individuals as well as the communities they're involved in. Sage expressed her concern that this will not only affect the University of Iowa swimmers but the swimming community as a whole, setting a precedent for other major schools to act similarly.
