Genevieve Miller Heads to NCAA Championships
March 18, 2014
USAF ACADEMY, Colo.- Air Force freshman Genevieve Miller heads to the 2014 NCAA Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships, held March 20-22, at the University of Minnesota Aquatic center on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Miller is slated to swim the 500 yard freestyle on Thursday and the 1650 free on Saturday.
Miller is the first Falcon women’s swimmer to participate in the NCAA Championships since Connie Cann in 1997. The freshman set six school records at the 2014 Mountain West Swimming & Diving Championships. The Winston-Salem, NC, native was the conference champion in the 500 and 1650 free, becoming Air Force’s first two-time conference champion in women’s swimming.
“Genevieve’s goals going in to the NCAA meet are to make a run at the MW records in both the 500 and the mile,” head coach Casey Converse said. “She has trained well in the two weeks since the MW meet. She has just two the swims to focus on whereas at the conference meet the mile was her sixth race. And of course, the NCAA Championship meet environment will help her also. Genevieve swims very well in a big-meet environment. I think she still has a little more room to improve in what has already been a remarkable year.”
The competition begins at 11 a.m. CST Thursday. The 500 free trials is the second event of the day. The finals begin at 7 p.m. The 1650 begins at 4:45 pm on Saturday.
