Mizzou also made history in the 200 medley relay, as the Tigers earned All-America honorable mention honors in a men's relay for the first time in school history. The team of senior Joe Hladik, Kozlovskij, junior Logan Mosley and Tierney took third in the consolation final with a program record time of 6:26.67.

In the 800 free relay, the Tigers set a new school record of 1:25.82 to place 20th in the event. Sophomore Eegan Groome clocked a leadoff 200 free split of 1:35.81 during the race, which broke his own school record.
