Former Virginia standout Scot Robison finished seventh in the men's 100-meter freestyle final Friday night (June 29) at the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb.
In a final that featured six Olympians from 2008, Robison placed seventh in a time of 48.92. Robison was a 21-time All-American and 17-time ACC Champion for the Cavaliers and represented the U.S. at the 2011 World Championships as a part of the 4x100m relay that earned bronze.
Earlier in the day, Lauren Perdue returned to the pool for preliminaries in the 100-meter freestyle shortly after clinching her Olympic bid in the 200-meter freestyle Thursday night. She clocked a time of 55.97 to place 27th in the event. Perdue is slated to compete Sunday in the 50-meter freestyle preliminaries.
Rising senior Brady Fox led the Cavaliers in the 200-meter backstroke. He recorded a 25th-place finish in a time of 2:02.33.
