King, Miller Win Breaststroke Events On Day 4 Of IU Bucceto Open

2017 IU BUCCETO OPEN

  • June 1-4, 2017
  • Bloomington, IN (IU campus)
  • Results on Meet Mobile under ‘IU Bucceto Open’

Lilly King closed out her showing at the IU Bucceto Open by winning two events on the final evening of competition. The Olympian, King, is the likely favorite in the breaststroke events heading into World Champ Trials at the end of this month. She won both the 100 Breast and 200 IM events this evening at IU in times of 1:07.43 and 2:16.58 respectively. King also swam the backstroke leg of the championship winning 400 medley relay for the Indiana Swim Team at the end of the finals session. In the men’s 100 breast, Olympic Bronze Medalist, Cody Miller finished first in 1:00.52.

Mallory Comerford of Cardinal Aquatics was crowned champion in another event this week, this time the 100 butterfly. Comerford won the event as the only swimmer to break 59.67. Following her NCAA championship in the short course 200 freestyle this spring, Comerford achieved a personal best yesterday in the 200 freestyle at 1:58.5 and will likely be significantly faster later on during this long course season. In the men’s 100 butterfly event, Comerford’s teammate at Cardinal Aquatics, Zach Harting, won in 54.67.

The Bucceto Open concluded today in Bloomington, Indiana on the same day that the final Arena Pro Swim Series event in Santa Clara concludes. While the event in Bloomington is not as deep, many swimmers who will look to compete with and beat those competing in California this week as World Champ Trials draws nearer.

Other event winners from day 4 are:

  • Bridgette Alexander, Women’s 100 Backstroke, 1:01.37
  • Cam Tysoe, Men’s 100 Backstroke, 56.75
  • Cooper Hodge, Men’s 200 IM, 2:05.72
  • Indiana Swim Team – A, Men’s 400 Medley Relay, 4:03.23

How many kicks on that breast? Also Lillyking is two seconds of hard work slower than Katie right now

Was waiting for this comment and was not disappointed. Big up Meili

I’ll laugh so hard if Lilly doesn’t make the team in the 100. Meili and Hannis are looking too good. Her best bet now is the 50, Cox and Meili have her beat in the 200.

Based on Hannis’s 50 this weekend, that event doesn’t look like a sure bet either.

Agreed

Haters going to hate…

Okay let’s not get ahead of ourselves I think Meilli is a lock for the team but not Hannis

Meili will upset King at World Trials in the 100. I doubt King will even make the team in the 200, and based on this weekend, Hyannis has he’d beat in the 50. Lilly King is working so much harder than every other breaststroke in the country😅

Not every breastroker, every swimmer
