COMO is a swim meet at the University of Missouri, where swimmers from all across the state come to compete. The meet will take place this Saturday.

Junior swimmer Liam Weishaar said this trip is one of his favorite parts of the season and that it’s more than just a swim meet for him.

“I am hoping to obtain some good experiences with the guys were going down with,” Weishaar said. “Even though we might not get into the finals, just appreciate the fact that we’re going down and doing this.”

The journey starts for the Aqua Spartans at 6 a.m. as they load on the bus and make the two hour haul to Mizzou. The doors open at 7:30 a.m. and warm-ups start at 8 a.m.

“I hope to obtain a better understanding of what our team is made out of this year,” senior captain Harrison Evers said. “This will be our first big test.”

Evers, alongside juniors Brad Hidalgo, Aidan King, and senior Matt Mielcuszny, look to beat their record time in the 200 yard Medley Relay.

“I am trying to send the message that we should live in the moment,” Evers said. ”Swim season goes by very quickly and if you are not swimming in the moment and being in the moment with your teammates, you could miss it.”
