6:30 p.m. And that concludes the final event from the MVC Championship. Illinois State won the 400-yard freestyle relay. Southern finished in second place thanks to great swims by all four legs. Rachael Barry, Shailey Brumley, Luisa Silveira and Pamela Benitez swam for the Salukis, with Benitez chasing down two competitors to move SIU from fourth to second during her leg. Brumley also swam a great split (51.58). Stay tuned as we get ready to hand out the awards. Diver of the Year, Swimmer of the Year, Swimming and Diving Coaches of the Year and the Elite 18 Award.
6:10 p.m. Congrats to Sherry Zhang, who just won the three-meter dive, setting an MVC Championship record in the process.
5:45 p.m. While we're in the diving break, it's a good time to thank everyone who made this meet go so well. From the MVC, thanks to Kristin Gregory and Derrick Docket, who made this the first ever streamed MVC Championship. From SIU, a big thanks to facilities director Andy Pettit and Katie Gerlach. Katie put in more hours in the last three days than just about anyone. Huge thanks to Brittany Massengale, who scored our meet flawlessly and went through the extra steps to allow us to post results immediately following each event. Southern's associate head coach Scott Olson served as the meet director yet again and did a great job as always. Aquatics director Jeff Goelz and his graduate assistant Alex Sandoval do a great job with the pool, as always, and Jeff organized the logistics for how to get our stream up and running. IT guys for the Rec, Jamal Joshua and Michael Henley handled all of our internet and technical needs. And the officials all did a great job. They're all veterans of officiating the MVC Championships, so it's easy to overlook them, but we cant take for granted how great they do. I'm sure there's many more people that I forgot, but the biggest thanks of course goes to the ladies in the conference, who train unbelievably hard all year to peak during these three days and give us such a great and fast meet. It's a lot of fun to watch. Next update will be after the meet wraps up after the 400-yard freestyle relay.
5:30 p.m. Missouri State's Dora Kiss is going to run away with MVC Swimmer of the Year after her performance in this Championship. She just won her third event of the meet and became the first swimmer to go sub-two minutes in the 200 fly in MVC Championship history.
5:10 p.m. Well that was interesting. Renata Sander and Melissa Oishi just tied for first place in the 200-yard breaststroke and set a new MVC Championship record.
5 p.m. Gotta give props to Michelle Tipton of Evansville. She is the back-to-back MVC Champion in both the 100- and 200-yard freestyle. Scoring wise, the meet is still pretty close at the top. Missouri State (718) leads the way again, but they haven't run away from Illinois State (642). Southern Illinois (581) is still in striking distance of Illinois State.
4:45 p.m. Not a bad start to the meet for the Salukis. After Benitez won the mile, SIU took six of the top 11 spots in the 200-yard backstroke, led by newcomer Morgan Timms, who finished second overall. And the momentum just keeps going. Shailey Brumley just won the B Final for the 100-yard freestyle in 52.40.
4:35 p.m. After the meet, the conference will hand out awards. In swimming, All-Conference honors aren't selected like in basketball or football. Since everyone is racing head-to-head, it's merit based. If you finish in the top three of your individual event or are a member of a winning relay team, you get first-team All-MVC honors. If you swim in the A Final but don't place in the top three, you earn an honorable mention nod. If you're a member of a second-place relay team, you earn Honorable Mention All-MVC as well.
4:30 p.m. That race marks the end of the career for Kirsten Groome, who puts up one of the all-time great careers in Saluki swimming. She advanced to the NCAAs as a freshman, becoming the first SIU swimmer in 20 years to do so. She still holds school records in the 500 free, 1,650 free and 400 IM; and she's second in the 1,000-yard freestyle. She won more than 50 individual events in her career. She had a great moment with Coach Walker after the race. Thanks, Kirsten, for all you have done!
4:20 p.m. Pamela Benitez won the mile, becoming the first Saluki individual of the meet to win an event. Not a bad way to start, especially with three of the top four times coming up in the 200-yard backstroke. Back to the mile, Southern has now won the mile in three of the last four years, after Kirsten Groome won in 2010 and 2011.
3:30 p.m. Were all set for an exciting final session. The swimmers are in the pool and we'll get underway in about 30 minutes. First things first, all the seniors will get recognized before we get underway. Southern has four seniors on the women's side--Anna Beeck, Kirsten Groome, Melissa Larocque and Jessica Anderson. Great group of young women who have had outstanding careers for the Salukis.
Noon That's a wrap from this morning's session. The final session of the meet is at 4 p.m. Be sure to check back in here and at Valley TV to see how things shake out.
11 a.m. Isabela Castro is seeded fourth but might be the favorite heading into tonight's final of the 200-yard butterfly. She's the two-time defending MVC Champion in the event. She trailed most of the way but Missouri State's Rebecca Amparano ran out of gas. Right after the heat, Rachael Barry won the swim-off for the eighth spot in the 100-yard freestyle A Final. When they saw there was a tie for the eighth spot and needed a swim-off, a couple people were disappointed, but Barry started jumping up and down. "I'm excited," she said. And then she went out and proved it. Great swim for Rachael.
10:45 a.m. Missouri State posted the top four times in the 200-yard breaststroke. For Southern, Melissa Larocque took the eight spot in the A Final and will look to move up in tonight's Final. J Anderson is in the seventh spot in the B Final.
10:40 a.m. How about Justin Wolfe? He's Mr. Do Everything at this meet. He's tipping off the coaches when SIU swims top-five times in school history. He's the one updating the scoreboard during the finals sessions. And today he's serving as a timer.
10:35 a.m. Speaking of the mile free, it should probably be noted for those who might not be familiar with swimming that the event is the one exception to the B Final rule where you can only score within your heat. In the mile, if you post the fastest time of the B Final, and that time also tops the A Final list, you'll win the event. They all score together.
10:30 a.m. How exciting is this? We have a three-way tie for the eight spot in the 100-yard freestyle, so there will be a swim-off. Were going to wait and post results after the swim-off is complete. Rachael Barry (SIU), Abby Smith (UE) and Hannah Molden (MSU) all swam 52.61 to tie for the eight spot. They'll swim before the B Final of the 1,650 freestyle. Should be about a half-hour and we'll post results from the event.
10:15 a.m. Southern Illinois got three in the A Final for the 200-yard backstroek. Katy Ovington, Morgan Timms and Hannah Pinion finished with the second-, third- and fourth-best times heading into tonight's final. Isabela Castro narrowly missed the A Cut and leads a trio of Salukis in the top three spots of the B Final. As Coach Walker just said, "That's a boatload of points."
10:10 a.m. Were halfway through the first event, the 200-yard backstroke. Sorry for the delay but here is the Heat Sheet if you're following along with the stream.
9:30 a.m. Its the final day of the MVC Championship here at the Rec. Come on out and support the Salukis. If you're a student at SIU, it's free. For this morning's preliminary session, we have the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast and 200 fly. Should be a short session this morning, gearing up for a big final session tonight, which starts at 4 p.m. The finals session will include the mile, three-meter dive finals and 400 freestyle relay, which to me is the most exciting and fun event of the Championship. You should come out and experience it for yourself.
Friday, Feb. 15
9 p.m. Illinois State set an MVC Championship record on it's way to winning the 800 free relay. Southern finished third. Coach Walker said he was in awe of his swimmers for staying in the top pack for so long in the event. We'll pick up again tomorrow for the final day of the Championship. The times are different, so be sure to tune in at 10 a.m. for the preliminary session and 4 p.m. for the finals session.
8:15 p.m. Consolation diving is completed, but we're not including it in the results because they won't be counted in team scores until the A Final has been completed tomorrow night. Illinois State dominated the 800-yard freestyle relay, setting a new MVC Championship and Shea Natatorium record.
7:35 p.m. Here's a scoring update before the final event of the session, which will be the 800-yard freestyle relay. In the meantime, we're in a break for swimming while the three-meter diving consolation finals are going on. The Championship Final for the three-meter dive will take place tomorrow. Anyway, back to the scoring. things are opening up between every space. Missouri State leads with 559 points. Illinois State (475) is still in striking range but has some work to do if the Redbirds want to stop MSU from winning its sixth-straight conference title. Southern Illinois (408) holds a comfortable position in third. Evansville (288) and Northern Iowa (157) are fourth and fifth, respectively.
7:30 p.m. Mardi Buchanan just scored at the MVC Championships. Her teammates were really excited for her. They were also excited for Ella Otto, who took the top spot in the B Final, and Kristy Hinkle finished fourth in the heat at (59.20). In the A Final, Anna Ahlin for Missouri State won the event. Morgan Timms finished second (56.33) and Katy Ovington finished in sixth (57.56).
7:15 p.m. Renata Sander made it back-to-back back-to-back champions. After Michelle Tipton won her second-straight 200 free title, Sander won her second-straight 100 breaststroke title. For Southern, Larocque, Johnson and Anderson finished third, fourth, and seventh, respectively, in the B Final.
7 p.m. Michelle Tipton becomes the first event repeat swimmer of the MVC Championships. Pamela Benitez (1:49.69) posted the third-best time in school history for the Salukis but couldn't quite catch Tipton. Gotta thank Justin Wolfe for being all over Benitez's top-five time in school history. Next up is the 100-yard breaststroke.
6:45 p.m. Illinois State's Jeanette Nolte set an MVC Championships record in the prelims and proved it wasn't a fluke by winning the event in the finals tonight. For Southern, Isabela Castro finished fourth (56.80) and Charlotte Davies finished sixth (56.95). Up next: the 200-yard freestyle.
6:30 p.m. Hannah Pinion finished third in the 400 IM, finishing in 4:27.79. Dora Kiss (MSU) and Courtney Taylor (ILS) finished first and second. Kiss, a freshman, won her second event of the Championships after taking the 500-yard freestyle title last night. Now on to the 100-yard butterfly.
6:15 p.m. Missouri State cruised to the 200-yard medley relay and set an MVC Championship record in the process. The fight was for second. At the start of the final leg, three teams were in a very close race for second. Luisa Silveira again proved herself a great anchor and won by three-tenths of a second.
6 p.m. If you're following along on the live stream, this Heat Sheet might help you out.
5:30 p.m. You know we're getting into the heart of the Championship because coaches are losing their voice. Coach Walker just started Charlotte Davies; and after she dove in, he turned and said, "That one almost didn't come out." Big night of competition ahead to sort out these teams. Thirty-three points between first and third is extremely close, even after only one day of swimming. To give you some context, there have been 948 points scored total, so a 33-point difference can shift in either direction in an event or two. Missouri State is favored to widen its lead, with favorites in nearly ever individual event tonight. Winning the MVC crown is mostly about depth, and they have that, too. They have three swimmers in the A Final for the 400 IM, 100 fly, 100 breast and 100 back. And they have two in the A Final for the 200 free. They're looking to make it six straight MVC titles and 10 in the last 11 years.
2:30 p.m. Diving has finished up, which means this session is done officially. The prelim results for diving are listed under Saturday's events because the A Final will be tomorrow night. Consolation finals will take place tonight. Thanks for following along and check back in at 6!
12:30 p.m. That's it for the swimming part of today's prelim session. Now we're just hanging out until the three-meter diving prelims start at 1 p.m. We'll get those results posted as soon as we have them. Check back in at 6 p.m. for more updates.
12:15 p.m. Renata Sander of Missouri State cruised to the top time in the 100 breaststroke, nearly setting a Championship record in the process. The Bears actually got the top three times in the event, but Illinois State got three in the A Final as well. The Salukis placed three in the B Final. We're on to our last swimming event of the prelims, the 100-yard backstroke.
Noon Three prelims down, three to go. The 200 free prelim is up, with Illinois State claiming both the top time (Danielle Schumacher at 1:50.51) and the most competitors in the A Final with three. Southern Illinois and Missouri State both have two in the A Final.
11:40 a.m. Illinois State's Jeanette Nolte just shattered an MVC record in the 100-yard butterfly, swimming a 54.77, which is nearly .7 seconds faster than the previous pool and Championship record. Missouri State placed three in the A Final again. Southern got two in the A Final and three in the B Final. Your heart has to go out to Rachael Barry, who missed the A Final by .04 seconds. Shailey Brumley and Luisa Silveira also made the B Final with Barry.
11:30 a.m. Dora Kiss, who already won the 500-yard freestyle, took the top time in the 400 IM prelims, followed by defending champion Hannah Pinion. Illinois State and Missouri state both got three swimmers in the A Final.
11:10 a.m. There are three heats of the 400 IM, five heats of the 100 fly, five heats of the 200 free, four heats of the 100 breast and five heats of the 100 back. The three-meter diving prelims will begin at 1 p.m.
11 a.m. We're about to get underway. If you're watching on Valley Live, this Heat Sheet should help you follow along. As a reminder, lane one is to your right and lane eight is to your left against the pool wall.
10:30 a.m. I think this speaks to the competitive nature of this meet: In last night's individual events, all four 2012 winners returned, and only Illinois State Wenting Zhang was able to repeat as champion. Today is a similar story; all five 2012 individual event winners return this year, but each event is competitive. We'll see who can knock them off. As a reminder, follow along with a free LIVE STREAM. Follow our official Twitter @SIU_SwimDive or LIKE us on Facebook.
10:20 a.m. We're set to start Day Two here at the Dr. Edward J. Shea Natatorium. today's events for the preliminaries are the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back and three-meter dive. Tonight, we'll add in the 200-yard medley relay and the 800 free relay on the front and back ends. The three-meter dive consolation final will be tonight and the A Final will be tomorrow night. It's a big day. Eight of the meet's 20 events are today, compared to six each on Thursday and Saturday. Lotta points out there; we'll see who takes them home. We'll get started in about 40 minutes.
Thursday, Feb. 14
8:30 p.m. That's all from Day One at the MVC Championship. Once again, it's Missouri State leading the way, with Illinois State and Southern Illinois right behind. Come back to this space tomorrow for more updates. The preliminary session starts tomorrow at 11 a.m. Team scores after the first day are as follows:
1.) Missouri State - 251
2.) Illinois State - 220
3.) Southern Illinois - 218
4.) Evansville - 162
5.) Northern Iowa - 97
7:30 p.m. OK, we're caught back up. Big shout out to Missouri State SID Adam Samson for getting this thing back running. All the results for the completed events are linked below. Missouri State is having a good day, winning all three individual events so far. They won't win the fourth, the one-meter dive, because they don't have a dog in that fight, so we'll see how much Illinois State and Southern Illinois can catch up after diving.
7 p.m. We're still experiencing some difficulty, but we think we're back up enough to upload results as they come in. We just updated the two events that are completed, the 200 free relay and 500-yard freestyle. SIU's 200-yard freestyle relay team set a school record and won the event, coming seven one-hundredths away from the MVC Championship record. Pamela Benitez finished second in the 500 free.
6:30 p.m. We had technical difficulties early in the session, so blog updates were slow. To follow the action, check out the Valley's live stream at Valley Live HERE..
2:45 p.m. Diving preliminaries have wrapped up and we're in the consolation final for the one-meter dive. Complete results from this morning's preliminaries have been posted below. Defending one-meter champion Wenting Zhang from Illinois State posted the top score heading into tonight's finals, but Southern Illinois got all four divers into tonight's A Final. No other team had more than two divers in the top final. That's all for this session. Check back in this space for coverage of tonight's finals session.
12:15 p.m. That was fast. We're done with the 50 free prelims. Missouri State's Katherine Gately posted the top time at 23.39. Last year's winning time in this event: 24.09 seconds. Stat of the day so far: 15 women posted times better than last year's MVC Champion in the 50 free preliminaries. Think they're pumped up this year? We'll get results posted as soon as we get them. The 1-meter dive preliminaries will start at 1 p.m. and will be streamed.
Noon We're done with the 200 IM. Winners of the five heats were Melissa Larocque (SIU), Charlotte Lechner (UE), Ibby Simcox (MSU), Hannah Pinion (SIU) and Jeanette Nolte (ILS). Nolte posted the fastest time in the prelims. We'll get the prelim results posted as fast as we can in the space below. Missouri State led the way with three swimmers in the A Final and four in the B Final.
Now for eight heats of the 50 free and the swimmers will be done until tonight's finals.
11:45 a.m. Danielle Schumacher, last year's conference champion in the 500 free, won the fourth heat. Missouri State's Dora Kiss cruised to win the fifth heat, posting the best time in the prelims at 5:54.33. Just as a reminder to those who are wondering how the prelim/finals works: the top 24 swimmers compete in the evening's finals session, with the top 16 scoring. In the finals, your point total is capped by the heat you're in. So if you post the ninth-fastest time in the prelims, you're in the B Final; and even if you swim the fastest time in the finals, you can only get points for being first in the B Final.
11:30 a.m. We're halfway through the 500-yard freestyle, into the fourth heat now. The fourth heat actually includes the last three MVC champions in the event. Illinois State's Danielle Schumacher won the event last year, and Southern's Kirsten Groome won the event the two years before that. This is one event where you definitely won't see a school, pool or MVC record. Groome's blistering time of 4:44.48 three years ago advanced her to nationals. That time is eight full seconds faster than anyone else has ever swam this event at the MVC Championships. The winners of the first three heats were UNI's Alesha Rettenmeier, UNI's Taylor Ostrowski and Illinois State's Cecilia Holmes.
11 a.m. We're underway with the first of five heats in the 500-yard freestyle. If you're following along with the live stream and want to know which swimmer is in which lane, click HERE for a heat sheet. The lanes are 1-8, with the first lane being on your right as you watch from the stream. Lane 8 is on your left against the pool wall.
10:55 a.m. And we're about to get under way. As a reminder, you can follow a free live stream at the link above this blog, or you can just click HERE. Follow our official Twitter @SIU_SwimDive or LIKE us on Facebook.
10:30 a.m. We're a half hour away. Missouri State was picked as the pre-Championship favorite. The Bears are going for their sixth-straight MVC title, which would break Southern Illinois' record of five straight from 1998-02. Missouri State has won nine of the last 10, with their only loss coming in 2007 to SIU. Illinois State is the leading contender to knock off the Bears this year. Illinois State garnered one first-place vote away from Missouri State this year, which is better than any team did last year. Southern Illinois, Evansville and Northern Iowa were picked third, fourth and fifth, respectively, by every coach.
9:45 a.m. Today's first session will only have three events since there are no preliminaries for the relays. We'll kick off with five heats of the 500-yard freestyle, followed by five heats of the 200=yard individual medley and eight heats of the 50-yard freestyle. After we're all set, the 1-meter diving preliminaries will start at 1 p.m.
9 a.m. It's the big day. The swimmers of the Missouri Valley Conference have a Valentine's Day date with the pool. We're going to kick things off in a couple hours. Stay right here for news and updates from today's morning session.
Welcome to the home of the 2013 MVC Championships live blog. We will post updates throughout the three-day Championships, just like we did last year. You can check out last year's blog HERE. We don't have traditional live scoring, so we're doing a makeshift version. Our brilliant meet scorer, Brittany Massengale, is making HTML files of each individual event, which I will post on this blog so you can get as up-to-date results as we can. By the way, this is John Lock, the sports information director for the swimming and diving program here at Southern Illinois. You can feel free to email me with any questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get you a response. You can also follow along to the SIU Twitter @SIU_SwimDive, where I'll be updating things as they go along. Thanks for checking in and come back each session for more updates!
