Missouri’s men’s swim team opened with two top-six relay finishes on Day 1 of the SEC Men’s Swimming Championship.
The Tigers finished in fourth place in the 800-yard free relay. Frederick Rindshoej, Jack Dahlgren, Jack Dubois and Grant Reed put a time of six minutes, 17.02 seconds to secure an NCAA ‘A’ cut for the Tigers. Rindshoej’s split time of 1:34.42 pushed him to fifth all-time for Missouri.
“We had some lifetime bests for some individuals in the 800 free relay,” Missouri swimming coach Andrew Grevers said in a release. “We’re going to ride that momentum into tomorrow morning.”
Dahlgren participated in both events for Missouri, as the Tigers also took sixth place in the 200-yard medley relay. Dahlgren, Ben Patton, Danny Kovac and Kyle Leach finished with a time of 1:24.42.
The championships will continue Wednesday with prelims at 10 a.m. and finals in the 500-yard freestyle, 50-yard freestyle, 200-yard IM and 200-meter freestyle relay.
