STANFORD, Calif. – Miki Dahlke qualified for her fourth Olympic Trials event on Sunday at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships.

The rising senior secured a spot in the 2020 Olympic Trials' 50-meter freestyle field after completing the race in 25.98 at Stanford's Avery Aquatic Center. The Trials cut was 25.99.

Hailing from nearby Mill Valley, Dahlke last week qualified for the Trials in the 100 free, 200 free and 100 fly before adding the 50 free to her list of accomplishments on the final day of the meet. 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 competitions in July.

Dahlke is set to lead the back-to-back Ivy League champions in the fall and will 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).
