Swimming From Home: Mizzou Staff Share Favorite Memories from First Season

We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing. Therefore, SwimSwam is starting the Swimming From Home Talk Show, where host Coleman Hodges speaks with the swimming community about how they’re coping with our current goggle-less reality.

I got to speak with Mizzou associate coaches Tracy Martin (women’s associate) and Alec Hayden (Men’s associate) about how the tigers are dealing with this situation. Like many teams, they are using apps like Zoom to stay in constant contact with their team, and even making weekly games and challenges to keep their athletes engaged. Tracy and Alec also share their favorite memories from their first season at Mizzou, including the first women’s relay at the first dual meet (which scored an NCAA “A” cut) and Danny Kovac taking the SEC title in the 100 fly.

My bad thank you for the correction. Thought Missouri stared with Missou BUT obviously it is spelled Mizzouri. There are many acceptable abbreviated Missouri forms.
