STANFORD, Calif. – Harvard women's swimming and diving rising senior Miki Dahlke qualified for 2020 Olympic Trials in the 200-meter freestyle on Thursday at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships.

Hailing from nearby Mill Valley, Dahlke posted a time of 2:01.60, to qualify for her second Olympic Trials event in as many days. Yesterday, the all-Ivy performer secured a spot at Trials in the 100 free after finishing in 55.91. Dahlke will be joined at Trials by incoming first-years Adaline Rose Bullock (100 back) and Felicia Pasadyn (100 back) after the duo qualified in separate meets in July.

Rising sophomore Samantha Shelton, meanwhile, narrowly missed qualifying for the Olympic Trials after she completed the 200 free in 2:02.26. The cut was 2:01.69.

Dahlke and Shelton are set to lead the back-to-back Ivy League champions in the fall and headline a roster that is scheduled to return all five of its NCAA qualifiers, six of its seven first-team all-Ivy League performers (individual/relay), and eight of its 10 all-Ivy second-team honorees (individual/relay).
