MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Harvard women's swimming and diving team returned to Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center on Sunday to participate in the long-course portion of the Minnesota Invitational.

Miki Dahlke was the runner-up in the 100-meter butterfly after finishing the race in 1:00.14, to record an Olympic Trials qualifying time. The senior from California had already punched her ticket to the U.S. Olympic Trials back in August, but improved her time by 0.16 seconds.

Samantha Shelton posted Harvard's second-best individual finish, coming in fourth place in the 100-meter backstroke (1:03.41), while Maddie Heilbrun and Kennidy Quist were both seventh-place performers in the 200-meter back (2:24.21) and 50-meter free (26.42), respectively.

Joining Quist in the 50-meter free were Darlene Fung (26.78; 11th), Helena Moreno (27.27; 13th), Athena Ye (27.36; 15th) and Adaline Rose Bullock (27.42; 16th). Allie Russell (1:14.91; 11th) and Liz Boyer (1:15.82; 14th), meanwhile, represented Harvard in the 100-meter breast.

The Crimson returns to action on Jan. 15, when it plays host to Brown in its final home meet of the 2019-20 campaign. The Ivy League meet is slated for a 1 p.m. start.
