COLUMBUS, Ohio – University of Notre Dame swimmer Amywren Miller registered her first Olympic Trials cut in the 50 Free during Sunday’s long course time trials at the McCorkle Aquatics Pavilion.

Miller’s time of 26.35 was one of 57 new Olympic Trial cut times recorded at the meet. She also swam a time of 57.94 in the 100 Free.

Samantha Maxwell racked her second Olympic Trials cut – after netting a 100 Breast invite time earlier this season – by swimming a 2:33.96 in the 200 Breast.

A lifetime best of 26.91 in the 50 Free turned in by Christa Riggins, who also swam a 57.71 in the 100 Free. She has already recorded Olympic Trials cuts in the 200 and 400 Free.

“Altogether, this was an excellent Easter weekend and a great finish to our season,” said Irish head coach Carrie Nixon.
