Irvine, California - A trio of rising juniors from the San Diego State swimming and diving team are set to compete in USA Swimming's Phillips 66 National Championships from July 26 - 29 at the William Woollett Aquatics Center. Courtney Vincent will participate in the 100 fly and 50 fly, Morganne McKennan will compete in the 50 breast, 100 breast, and 200 breast, and McKenna Meyer will partake in the 400 IM.
The meet will serve as a selection event for USA National Teams competing at the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships, 2019 World Championships, 2019 World University Games, 2019 Pan American Championships, and 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Championships. Events will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network or on USASwimming.com and live results will be provided by Omega Timing.
Vincent, who competed in the NCAA National Championships in March, will race in the 50 fly on Thursday and the 100 fly on Friday. Vincent set the San Diego State record in the 100 fly with a time of 52.41 at the Mountain West Championships last February to capture the individual title and help lead SDSU to a second-place team finish. Vincent was one of just two Mountain West swimmers to compete in last year's NCAA National Championships.
McKennan's week features the 200 breast on Thursday, the 50 breast on Friday, and the 100 breast on Saturday. McKennan earned all-MW status in both the 100 breast and the 200 breast at the MW Championships and recorded the second-fastest 100 breast time in school history (1:00.87) en route to a second place finish at the conference meet.
Meyer will compete in the 400 IM on Friday and earned three all-MW honors (400 IM, 500 free, 1650 free)during her sophomore campaign. Earlier this summer, Meyer was recognized as a CSCAA Academic All-American and posted a pair of second-place finishes at the MW Championships in February. Meyer is currently in the program's top 10 fastest times in six different events -- good for the most in SDSU history.
San Diego State is coming off a season that sent two student-athletes to the NCAA National Championships, featured a second-place finish in the Mountain West Championships, and had an 11-1 record in dual meet competition.
