  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rutgers swimming and diving program completed its participation at the 2004 U.S. Swimming Olympic Trials with three strong performances, but failed to qualify anyone for the Summer Games in Athens.

    Matt Campbell performed a personal-best time and school record 23.24 in the 50 freestyle and finished 19th in the preliminaries. His time would have earned him a spot in the semi-finals, but he did it in a swim off for the “alternate spot” to swim in the semis should someone become hurt, etc. He competed for the final alternate spot with Luke Anderson of Virginia in front of a crowd of over 7,000 fans.

    Kelly Harrigan ended her valiant bid for the Olympic Team when she finished 19th place in the 200 backstroke (2:17.35), just missing the semi-finals, which include the top 16 preliminary swims. She also finished 23rd in the 100 back, posting a time of 1:04.54.

    “The Rutgers effort in these Olympic Swimming Trials is something to behold," said RU head coach Chuck Warner. "Four years ago, we did not have any swimmers near the semi-final level. We are making a real contribution to the American Olympic Swimming Team and all Rutgers fans should take pride in our student-athletes' efforts.”
