CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Miki Dahlke and senior Jing Leung will represent Harvard women's swimming and diving this week at the 2018 NCAA Division I Championships hosted by Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio beginning on Wednesday, March 14.

The Crimson pair are two of four qualifiers from the Ivy League. Dahlke and Leung will be joined by Yale swimmer Heidi Vanderwel, and Princeton diver Sine Scribbick.

Dahlke qualified for the 100-yard butterfly to earn her entry into the meet. She will compete in the event on Friday along with the 200-yard freestyle. Additionally, she will also swim in the 100-yard freestyle the following day on Saturday.

Leung will compete on the platform on Saturday. Leung won her third consecutive NCAA Zone A Diving title last Wednesday to qualify for the NCAA Championship. As a sophomore in 2016, she placed eighth to earn first team All-America honors and became the first diver since 1988 to earn first team All-America. Leung is one of only two Harvard platform divers to receive the distinction.
