CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's swimming and diving rising senior Miki Dahlke has secured a 2020 Olympic Trials bid with her effort on Wednesday at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships in Stanford, California.

Competing roughly 50 miles south of her hometown, the Mill Valley native registered a 100 freestyle time of 55.91, while swimming in Heat 4. 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 earlier this month.

Dahlke will return for her final campaign after earning an NCAA Championships berth every season while on campus. Last year, she won Ivy League titles in the 500 free, 100 fly, 400 free relay and 800 free relay, and set the school record in the 100 free, 200 free and 500 free at the Ivy League Championships.

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