HIGH SCHOOL - Kozlovskij comes to Missouri from Lithuania, where he swam competitively enough to earn a national ranking of 12th overall from collegeswimming.com. His converted times are impressive: Kozlovskij's best times in the 100 breast and 200 breast are 54.14 and 1:58.99, and he also swims the 100 fly (48.45), 100 free (44.90) and 200 IM (1:49.95). Kozlovskij was also a World and European Junior Championships participant.
Coach Rhodenbaugh: "His converted times are already faster than our school record in the 100 breast. He too has shown significant improvement and with the caliber of facilities and training he will get at Missouri he will make a significant impact in our conference during his freshman year. Even at his young age, he brings a wealth of international experience to our team."
