Austin, Texas - After two days of competition the #21 Missouri women's team is sitting in sixth place and the men's team is third. Both the men's and women's teams had several outstanding individual performances and Missouri all-time top-five times throughout the day's competition.
In the men's 500 freestyle freshman Jason Lyons led Missouri with his seventh place finish and a personal best time of 4:34.72. The most surprising performance of the day came from RS-freshman Peter Willett as he placed ninth and set a new personal best of 4:33.45, nearly ten seconds faster than his previous best. Sophomore Wade Pennington and senior Eric Sullins finished 10th and 11th respectively. Sullins' time of 4:46.42 is a personal best.
In the men's 200-yard individual medley junior Matt North placed eighth and set a personal best time that ranks third in Missouri's all-time top-five times. Sophomore David Darmitzel also had a new personal best time in the 200 IM as he finished tenth. Darmitzel was followed by teammates Jacob Thomas and older brother Stephen Darmitzel in 11th and 12th place.
In the women's 50-yard freestyle sophomore Liz Schoborg led Missouri as she tied for 14th place. Schoborg's time of 23.69 is a personal best and ranks fifth in MU's top-five times. In the men's 50 freestyle, led by senior co-captain Tyler Belanger finished 11th thru 15th respectively.
In the diving well the women competed on the 1-meter board while the men competed on the 3-meter board. Junior Anna Massey led the women with a tenth place finish while Nicole Frazier added a 15th place finish. Freshman Kim Massaro competed as an exhibition in today's event.
"Our women have gotten off to a slow start and are struggling right now," said Head Coach Brian Hoffer. "We need to find a way to recover so we can get back to where we should be in this meet. Our men are swimming up to their expectation right now and I'm pleased with how they are competing. David [Darmitzel] has continued to improve throughout the season and Peter Willet surprised us all with his exceptional performance in the 500 [freestyle] tonight."
