Hoosiers Continue Competition at U.S. Open
Dec. 1, 2006
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Junior John Kevin Koehler and former Hoosier All-American and current student coach Sergiy Fesenko were Indiana's lone competitors on the second day of competition at the U.S. Open at the Boilermaker Aquatic Center on Dec. 1.
Koehler swam in the preliminaries of the 400-meter individual medley in the morning session, touching in 4:44.11 for 37th place.
Fesenko posted a time of 1:54.88 in the preliminaries of the 200-meter freestyle to finish 23rd and earn a spot in the bonus final, but opted out to focus on the 1,500-meter freestyle, set for Dec. 2. Fesenko is the top seed in the event.
"We didn't have a lot of events with the men, and Sergiy swam a good prelim time in the 200 free and JK in the 400 IM was a fine time for him," Indiana head coach Ray Looze said. "Hopefully we'll have our best day tomorrow as far as people qualifying for the bonus, consolation and championship finals. I think tomorrow will be a good day for us."
The U.S. Open concludes on Saturday, Dec. 2, with prelims starting at 9 a.m. and finals set for 6 p.m. Complete results can be found at http://www.omegatiming.com/swimming/racearchives/2006/lafayette2006/index.htm.
