CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Mizzou men's swimming and diving team opened day one of competition in a two-day tri-meet against host Southern Illinois and Southeastern Conference foe Kentucky Thursday evening in Carbondale, Ill. Missouri won nine events during first day action.
In the men's 400 medley relay, Mizzou took the top two spots. The Tigers' A squad of senior Logan Mosley, juniors Sam Tierney and Igor Kozlovskij and sophomore Max Grodecki touched in 3:18.15 for first, while junior Austin Fish, sophomore Michal Rokita, junior Mack Darragh and freshman Michael Chadwick took second in 3:24.03.
Chadwick earned the first of his two individual wins next in the 200 free. The freshman touched in 1:39.94 to take the first event title of his career. Chadwick completed the 100/200 free sweep later in the evening when he placed first in the 100 free in 45.61, over a second ahead of the next finisher.
Also a double-winner on the day was Tierney. The junior lead a one-two-three-four sweep in the 100 back in a time of 49.35. Mosley took second (49.85), while freshman Carter Griffin placed third (50.66) and Fish took fourth (51.32). Tierney then finished first in the 100 breast after a swim of 55.89.
