Penn senior Brendan McHugh qualified in the 100-breast with a time of 53.04 at Kenyon College's Total Performance Invitational earlier this season.

Five swimmers from Harvard made the field, including the 400-free relay team of sophomores Oliver Lee and Chris Satterthwaite, as well as freshmen Griffin Schumacher and Zachary Walters. That quartet swam a 2:53.22 to win the event at the 2012 Ivy League Championship. Satterthwaite, who shared the 2012 Phil Moriarty Award as the High Point Swimmer of the Meet at the recent Ivy championships, also qualified in the 200-free (1:35.05). Crimson freshman Chuck Katis made it in the 100-breast (53.17), a time he posted en route to a second-place finish at the Ivy championships.

Princeton also had five swimmers qualify for the 2012 NCAA Championships, including the 200-medley relay team of senior Jonathan Christensen, junior Kaspar Raigla and freshmen Michael Strand and Harrison Wagner. That group captured the 2012 Ivy League title in the 200-medley in a meet, pool and League-record of 1:25.89 to punch its ticket to the NCAA Championship. Christensen, also a 2012 Phil Moriarty Award as the Swimmer of the Meet winner, qualified individually in the 100-breast (52:86) and the 200-breast (1:55.96). Tiger sophomore Paul Noelle, the third winner of the 2012 Phil Moriarty Award, rounds out the Ivy contingent, as his Ivy title swim in the 1,650-free (15:00.16) got him on the list of invitees.
