OMAHA, Neb.—Pitt’s trio of swimmers resumed action at the U.S. Olympic Trials at CenturyLink Center on Wednesday afternoon.

Sophomore Jon Lierley swam the 200 fly, touching the wall at 2:04.70. Lierley, a native of Mount Pleasant, S.C., competed in the 10th heat of the event – the first qualifying Olympic Trial showing in his career.
