Aug. 29, 2014
MAUI, Hawaii - Indiana University freshman swimmer Blake Pieroni added another individual silver medal to his tally on day two of the Junior Pan Pacific Championships on the island of Maui in Hawaii.
Pieroni took second in the 100-meter freestyle final with a time of 50.30, just 1/100th of a second off the gold medal swim of Paul Powers, also a member of Team USA. That follows Pieroni's silver-medal performance in the 200 freestyle on Wednesday when he clocked a new IU record time of 1:48.85.
The freshman also picked up his first gold medal of the meet as a member of the 800 freestyle relay which clocked a time of 7:21.36.
Also competing yesterday was freshman Cody Taylor, who took seventh in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:02.94.
Both will be back in action on Saturday when Pieroni swims the 50 freestyle and Taylor takes part in the 200 breaststroke. Taylor is the top seed in the 200 breaststroke with a seed time of 2:12.73.
