Fischer Finishes Preparations For NCAA Men's Championships
March 20, 2012
LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming senior swimmer Brandon Fischer will make his first appearance at the NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships, on Thursday in Seattle, Wash. Fischer will be racing at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center. He will swim the 100 and 200 breaststrokes as well as the 200 individual medley.
"When I saw the final cut to the meet I was relieved that (Brandon) made it in," Wyoming head coach Tom Johnson said. "I know with Brandon having his conference championships so early in February that he was able to have a great training period before racing again this week."
Fischer, a native of Livermore, Calif., will begin competition at the NCAA Championships on Thursday, with the 200 individual medley. He has the 57th-fastest 200 IM time in the country of 1:47.91. He will continue racing on Friday, with the 100 breaststroke, in which he enters with the 32nd-fastest time in the NCAA (54.67). He will finish the championships on Saturday, with the event that qualified him for the NCAAs, the 200 breaststroke, and enters with the 16th fastest time of 1:55.75.
Preliminary racing will begin at 1 p.m. MT all three days with the finals to follow at 9 p.m. MT.
