Missouri also earned All-America honors in a relay for the first time in school history. Sophomore Sam Tierney became Mizzou's the second swimming first team All-American, while Tierney and sophomore Igor Kozlovskij each added All-America honorable mention accolades. The 200 medley relay also earned All-America honorable mention honors. In the diving well, Bonuchi added three more first team All-America honors to his name to put his career total to eight. He now stands as the most decorated Tiger in program history.

Bonuchi finished seventh on the platform in the finals session with 362.20 points, after he advanced to the platform finals with a prelims score of 393.40. The Columbia, Mo., native earned first team All-America honors on all three diving events during the week, with finishes of third on the 1-meter, seventh on the platform and eighth on the 3-meter.

Tierney and Kozlovskij competed in Saturday evening's 200 breast consolation finals. Tierney took second in the race in 1:55.67 and Kozlovskij touched just behind his teammate in 1:55.88, good for third. The duo posted times of 1:54.49 and 1:55.54, respectively, in the prelims to advance. Kozlovskij's time marked a new career best.

Sophomore Mack Darragh just missed a spot in the 200 fly consolation finals, as he placed 17th in the event. Darragh's time of 1:44.26 was just 0.05 seconds off his school record of 1:44.21.
