COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Junior Logan Houck of the Harvard men's swimming and diving team has been selected to the USA Swimming National Team, as announced by the organization, September 1.
Houck was one of 115 athletes (59 men, 56 women) to be named to the national team Friday. The 2017-18 USA Swimming National Team features the top six athletes in each individual Olympic event from the combined results of the 2017 Phillips 66 National Championships, 2017 FINA World Championships, 2017 World University Games and the 2017 U.S. Open.
Houck earned his spot on the national squad in the 800 and 1500 freestyle events. At the U.S. Open, Houck registered a time of 15:01.70, the third-fastest time among the six qualifiers. At the same event, he touched the wall in 7:56.05 in the 800 free, the fifth-best time among the national team qualifiers.
Houck was an All-Ivy League second team honoree at last year's conference championship meet in the 500 free.
