The 2018 CSC (Columbia Swim Club) Summer Invite was held Friday-Sunday, June 15-17th at the Mizzou Aquatic Center in Columbia, Missouri. The Mizzou swimmers at the meet showed up with some big swims, especially for a non-national level meet.

One of the best performances came from Nick Alexander, who dropped 2.18 seconds to post a 1:58.97 in the 200 back. Alexander, who will be a Mizzou Junior in the Fall, shattered his previous best time of 2:01.15, and landed himself 39th in the world this year, and 7th in the nation. He swam a very consistent race, taking it out in a quick 27.94, then posting splits of 30.28, 30.45, and 30.30 respectively. Alexander also threw down a lifetime best of 55.47 in the 100 back. While that time doesn’t land him quite so high in the world rankings for this year, it was a significant drop from his previous best time of 56.30.

Ann Ochitwa, who will be a Mizzou Senior in the Fall, went 26.65 in the women’s 50 fly, landing her in a tie for 9th in the nation this year, and 50th in the world. That time was just off Ochitwa’s best of 26.49 from last Summer. Haley Hynes, who will be a Mizzou Junior in the Fall, posted a 28.77 in the women’s 50 back. That time was slightly off her best of 28.50, and is 14th in the country this year, and 78th in the world.

Giovanny Lima, a redshirt-Sophomore for Mizzou in the 2018-2019 season, threw down a pretty quick trio of free events at the meet. In the 100 free, Lima touched in 51.13, which is just off his personal best of 51.01. Lima also posted a 1:49.77 to win the men’s 200 free, coming within a second of his best time of 1:48.94. Lima finished put his weekend with a 3:56.72 in the 400 free, only 3.5 seconds off his best of 3:53.20. He was out in 55.98 and posted 100 splits of 1:00.02, 1:00.82, and 59.90 on his last 3 100s.

Mikel Schreuders, a Mizzou Senior, took the men’s 100 free with a 50.97, a little ways off his best of 49.80. Micah Slaton (Mizzou Junior) took the men’s 100 fly in 54.12, and the 200 fly in 2:01.50. Those times were both close to his best times of 53.68 and 2:00.49.

JP input is too short

Some good swims for the Mizzou folks, as well as incoming freshman Dane Florea and some of the age-groupers there. I’d keep an eye on Carter Nelson from FAST in St Louis County – 24.4/53.7/1:58 for a 16 year old in season is pretty solid.


I am always impressed with Missouri and how they coach up their athletes! They probably (certainly) don’t get the talent of Stanford, Cal, Texas, Georgia, etc but they do as good if not better job with their talent (coaching them up)!
