CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia men’s and women’s swim teams will send 15 student-athletes to the Phillips 66 National Championships and World Championships Trials at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis, Ind., for a five-day swim meet that begins on Tuesday (June 27- July 1).
Athletes will compete for a chance to swim at the 2017 World Championships for the U.S. National Team in Budapest, Hungary (July 23-30).
The 2017 World Championships roster will feature 26 men and 26 women. Priority for roster positions will be giving to the top-four finishers in the 100-meter and 200-meter freestyle events, followed by the top-two finishers in Olympic events. Winners for non-Olympic events will be selected next before the fifth and sixth place swimmers in the 100- and 200-meter freestyle round out the team.
The Cavaliers will see alumni Leah Smith (Class of 2017), rising seniors Jennifer Marrkand (Westford, Mass.), Caitlin Cooper (Atlanta, Ga.) and Cece Williams (Tallahassee, Fla.), rising juniors Alex Albracht (Mission Hills, Kan.), Zach Fong (Moorestown, N.J.), Bryce Keblish (Fairfield, Conn.), Rachel Politi (Bexley, Ohio), Dan Golczewski (Gaithersburg, Md.) and Sam Magnan (Bethlehem, Pa.) and rising sophomores John Whiteside (Fairfield, Conn.), Ryan Baker (Arlington, Va.), Ted Schubert (Ashland, Va.), Morgan Hill (Olney, Md.) and Madeleine Vonderhaar (Lakeside Park, Ky.) compete in Indianapolis.
Swimmers will also have the chance to earn a roster spot with the U.S. National Team. The team will be comprised of the top-six times, this season, posted in Olympic events. Swimmers may qualify for the national team at the U.S. Nationals, Worlds, World University Games or U.S. Open meets.
Rising junior Brendan Casey (Santa Monica, Calif.) qualified for the World Championships in the 10k open water swim earlier this summer.
