Seven current Missouri swimmers are slated to compete at the 2006 ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships, Aug. 1-5, at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine, Calif.
Current Mizzou standouts Bennett Clark, Jill Granger, Lori Halvorson, Shannon Hogan, Justin Sellers, Carly Sullivan and Alex Zasadny will compete against a field that includes more than 20 Olympic gold medalists.
Clark will be competing in the 50- and 100-meter freestyle for the St. Louis-based Clayton Shaw Park team, while Sellers and Zasadny will take to the pool in the 200 butterfly for the Mizzou Swim Team.
Halvorson is scheduled to participate in three individual events - 200 backstroke, 200 individual medley and 200 free - and a trifecta of relays - 400 medley, 400 free and 800 free - with Granger, Hogan and Sullivan. Hogan also qualified for the 50 and 100 free with Granger in the 800 free.
"This is a great opportunity for these swimmers to compete in one of the fastest meets in the world," Mizzou head coach Brian Hoffer said.
Preliminary sessions begin each day at 9 a.m. PST, with finals contested at 5:30 p.m. PST. Participants will be vying for spots among five international teams, including a group headed to the upcoming Mutual of Omaha Pan Pacific Championships (Aug. 17-21 in Victoria, British Columbia).
