The 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships begin Thursday, Mar. 20, and Arizona State will sending two participants: long distance swimmer Tristin Baxter and 3-meter diver Hailey Casper. The competition, taking place at Minnesota Aquatic Center in Minneapolis, runs through Saturday evening.

Swimmers qualify for the NCAA Championships by swimming establishing a minimum time in respective events. Baxter has dominated competition in the distance events constantly all year, and she earned her shot to compete for a national title in the 1650 and 500 freestyle. She swam the 20th best time in the country in the 1650 free with an NCAA B-cut time of 16:09.76 while swimming the 25th best time in the 500 free with a time another B-cut time of 4:41.08. Baxter has also been invited to compete in the 400 IM, an event she completed in 4:12.67, good enough for 40th best in the nation.

Hailey Casper will attempt to win the Sun Devils a national title off the diving board in her second trip to the NCAAs. Divers for NCAA Championships are determined by performances in Zone E Qualifying Championships, where Casper notched a second-place finish on the 3-meter springboard, an event she also finished in second-place in the 2013 NCAA Championships.

Preliminaries will begin at 9 a.m. PT, while finals will begin at 5 p.m. on all three days of competition. Diving finals are completed in the afternoon, with the 1-meter dive on Thursday, the 3-meter on Friday, and the platform Saturday.
