INDIANAPOLIS – Freshman Mikaela Dahlke has been invited to compete in the 2017 NCAA Division I Women's Swimming and Diving Championship, as the NCAA announced the invitees for all of the individual and relay events Wednesday.
Dahlke was officially invited to compete in the 200 freestyle at the NCAA Championships March 15-18 in Indianapolis. The Mill Valley, California native set the school record in the 200 free at the Ivy League Championships, recording a time of 1:45.23. That time counted as the 32nd-fastest in the nation this season.
Dahlke also had times in the top-60 in the nation in the 50 and 100 free events this season, posting a 22.80 in the 50 and a 48.90 in the 100. Both times narrowly missed the top-40 cut for invitation to the NCAA Championships.
Dahlke may be joined in Indianapolis by members of the Harvard diving squad, pending the results of next week's NCAA Zone Diving Championships. Jing Leung and Mikaela Thompson are competing at the Zone event held at Virginia Tech, March 6-8, looking to punch their tickets to the NCAA Championships.
