March 27, 2014
AUSTIN, Texas - David Bonuchi earned his ninth career All-America honor after a fourth-place finish on the 1-meter springboard to highlight Mizzou's day one action Thursday at the 2014 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships in Austin, Texas. The Tigers sit 15th overall with 28 points following six events.
During day one, Missouri also set four school records in the pool, including two by senior Logan Mosley (50 free and 100 back). Mizzou's other school records included junior Sam Tierney in the 200 IM and the 400 medley relay team.
Bonuchi's fourth-place finish on the 1-meter marked the senior's ninth consecutive All-America honor. The Columbia, Mo., native scored 405.95 in finals after a prelims tally of 378.20. Also earning points in the diving well for the Tigers was sophomore Clark Thomas, who finished sixth in the consolation final after a score of 338.60. Thomas secured the final B final spot in prelims after placing 16th with 331.85 points.
For only the second time in school history, Missouri scored points in a relay after advancing to the 400 medley consolation. In finals, the Tiger team of Mosley, Tierney, freshman Andrew Sansoucie and freshman Michael Chadwick swam a program record 3:08.08 to place fourth in the consolation final. Mosley set his second school mark of the day after a 46.16 100 back split, breaking his old mark of 46.4.
The Tigers started off the meet in the 200 free relay, where the foursome of Mosley, Tierney, freshman Michael Chadwick and senior Mark Conroy placed 18th in 1:18.37. Mosley's opening 50 free split of 19.59 broke his own school record, while the 1:18.37 was good enough to rank second all-time at Mizzou.
Missouri had two competitors in the 200 IM. Tierney reset his own program record with a 1:44.72 to mark the first time a Tiger went under 1:45. The junior's time was good for 26th, while junior Igor Kozlovskij took 31st in a personal best 1:45.07.
In the 50 free, Mosley earned a 28th-place finish after a time of 19.60.
Also swimming during the day was junior Eegan Groome in the 500 free. Groome placed 24th overall after touching the wall in 4:18.48.
