The quintet of CDT Kohen Rankin ’26, CDT Kalvin Hahn ’27, 2LT Aurelie Migault ’24, 2LT Sam Wesley ’24, and CDT Owen Harlow ’25 performed admirably at the meet, representing the Black Knights well at one of the biggest stages for Swim & Dive and making program history in the process.

Two of Army’s swimmers made program history at the meet as Hahn became the first Black Knight to swim in multiple events at the same U.S. Olympic Team Trials meet while Migault put her name in the Army West Point record books as the first member of the Women’s Swim & Dive program to compete at the Trials.
