OMAHA, Neb. - Rising senior Ayman Andrews and assistant coach Amanda Croix represented the Army swimming program at the United States Olympic Trials this past week.

Andrews, a two-time All-Patriot League selection, placed 20th in the 100-meter butterfly with a clocking of 53.96 seconds. Andrews' time meets the FINA "B" standard and gives him the opportunity to qualify for the U.S. Army's World Class Athlete Program (WCAP).

Croix swam to a 105th-place finish in the 50-meter freestyle, touching the wall in 26.59. A national champion in the event at Carthage (Wis.) College, Croix was seeded 133rd, but finished nearly 30 spots higher.

Two of Army's incoming freshmen also competed at the Olympic Trials. Zach Blankenbeker placed 127th in the 200-meter butterfly (2:07.59), while Natalie Beale finished 162nd in the 200-meter backstroke (2:21.72) and 113th in the 400-meter freestyle (4:32.46).
