The Notre Dame women's swimming team has sent five representatives to the 2000 U.S. Olympic Trials in Indianapolis, Ind. After the first three days of competition, four of the swimmers have competed with some of their teammates still having events to swim.

Three-time All-American Carrie Nixon (Ouray, Colo.) swam in the preliminaries of the 100-meter butterfly on August 9. Nixon, who will be a senior at Notre Dame this fall, finished 29th in 1:02.01. She will also compete in the preliminaries of the 100-meter freestyle on Sunday, Aug. 13, then swim her specialty event - the 50-meter freestyle on August 15.

Fellow classmates Tiffany O'Brien (Redmond, Wash.) and Kristen Van Saun (Lawrence, Kan.) have also swam their events at the trials. O'Brien, who tallied 21 top-five finishes last season with the Irish, competed in the preliminaries of the 400-meter individual medley on Aug. 9, finishing 76th in 5:06.62. Van Saun, a two-event BIG EAST champion in 1999-2000, swam the 400-freestyle on Aug. 10, finishing 74th in 4:30.06.

Junior Alison Lloyd (Fort Wayne, Ind.) also made the trip to Indianapolis and competed in the 100-meter breaststroke August 10, finishing 86th in 1:16.86.

Senior Kelly Hecking (Rutherford, N.J.) has yet to swim and will compete in the 200-breaststroke Aug. 13.
