Swim and Dive Primed for Trip to Missouri State

Matthew Ross MIZ Long Course Qualifier

Columbia, Mo. – The University of Missouri swimming and diving program makes its second in-state trip this season, as they travel to Springfield to compete against Missouri State on Saturday, Dec. 2. The weekend matinee is slated to begin at 11 a.m. from inside the Hammons Student Center Pool. All live results can be found via the Meet Mobile app.

Historically, the Bears are one of Mizzou’s most commonly faced opponents. The two programs will meet for the 19th time in 25 seasons, and annually since 2011.

The Tigers will send 48 athletes to Springfield, including all victors of 17 events from the Mizzou Invite.


  • Following their trip to Lindenwood in November, this marks MU’s second visit to an in-state school this season.
  • This is the seventh time this century that the Tigers are making two trips to in-state programs, most recently during the 2015-16 season. All other occurrences featured trips to Springfield neighbors, Missouri State and Drury.
  • Since 1998, the men’s squad has a 16-2 all-time standing against Missouri State, winning each of the past 14 meetings. The women’s team, however, is an unblemished 14-0 against the Bears.


  • Throughout the invitational, eight Tigers entered their names onto the program’s all-time Top Ten Times list.
  • The women’s 200 fly duo of Taylor Williams (1:55.88) and Emily Roden (1:56.39) garnered the second and third-fastest times in program history, respectively.
  • Grant Bochenski earned a 45.60 in the men’s 100 back, good for fourth all-time.
  • Jane Smith posted a 16:25.29 in the 1650 free (mile), taking first prize and increasing her personal best to reach fifth all-time in school history.
  • Calvin Windle’s 200 free time of 1:34.30 cracked the top five on the all-time list.
