    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Notre Dame women's swimming and diving put the finishing touches on a strong 2011-12 season recently at the U.S. Olympic Trials, as the seven-person contingent turned in several impressive swims during the eight-day meet at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Neb.

    Reaney also placed 23rd in the 200 breast (2:30.93), 24th in the 100 breast (1:09.90) and 41st in the 400 IM (4:52.77).

    Ryan turned in a pair of top-25 finishes in the 100 and 200 back. The Hinsdale, Ill., product finished 20th in the 200 back (2:14.67) and 25th in the 100 back (1:02.80. She also took 108th in the 100 free (57.74).
