The University of Notre Dame women’s swim team received word Thursday morning that freshman freestyler Ella Moynihan (Denver, Colo. / Arapahoe) was invited to race at the 2016 NCAA Championship Meet. The meet will be held March 16-19 at the McAuley Aquatic Center in Atlanta, Ga. Georgia Tech will serve as the host institution.
Moynihan, who qualified in the 200 free, owes the trip to her leadoff split in the 800 free relay at the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Championship. Her time of 1:45.46 was two and a half seconds under the NCAA B-cut time of 1:47.99, but equally shy of the NCAA A-cut automatic qualifying time of 1:43.82.
