Women’s swimmers travel for last shot to qualify for NCAAs

Northwestern’s women swimmers will have one more chance to qualify for the NCAA Championships this weekend at Purdue.

The meet on Sunday is called the last chance meet because it gives the women a final opportunity to earn a qualifying time if they failed to during the regular season or at the Big Ten championships. The swimmers who compete are usually just short of a qualifying time.

Christy Olin likely qualified for NCAAs during Big Tens last weekend — she was the only NU swimmer to do so. But Olin is going to try to get an even better time this weekend.

She also wants to try a long course 200-yard butterfly because she has a goal of making the U.S. Olympic trials, and swimming this weekend would be a good rehearsal for her, coach Jimmy Tierney said.

Tierney also added that some girls want to swim because they will be more tired this weekend than last weekend, and they want to test the difference in performance between the two weekends. That way, next year the girls will know how their body performs under different degrees of fatigue.

The five Wildcats swimmers who are going to the meet are: Olin, Amy Mueller Michelle Oeser, Katie Paglini and Vicky West.
