Tigers Record Slew of Bests on Day Two Prelims



Feb. 20, 2013

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The Mizzou men's swimming team set a slew of personal bests and advanced four to tonight's finals session on day two of the SEC Championships.

Mizzou advanced three Tigers to the evening's 200 IM consolation final. Sophomore Igor Kozlovkij was Missouri's top finisher in 11th with a career best 1:45.91, just ahead of classmate Sam Tierney, who posted a 1:45.94 for 12th. Sophomore Mack Darragh also made the consolation final in 14th-place with a time of 1:46.15, which was also a career best.

Junior Logan Mosley shattered his own personal best with a 20.02 in the 50 free, the fastest time for a Tiger this season, to advance to the consolation final in 15th. Mosley's time also gave him an NCAA `B' time in the event. Freshman Max Grodecki finished tied for 16th with a best 20.03 but ultimately lost his swim-off with Tennesse's Troy Tillman and will swim in tonight's C final.

In the first event of the day, three Tigers competed in the 500 free. Sophomore Eegan Groome placed 34th in a time of 4:26.07, while sophomore Andrew Phillips (4:27.42) and freshman Daniel Graviss (4:29.78) were 39th and 46th, respectively.

The SEC Championships resume Wednesday, Feb. 20 with the finals session at 6 p.m.
