WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Three Purdue women's swimmers have been selected to compete in the 2012 NCAA Championships, including two that will be making the second appearances of their careers.

Emily Fogle, Lauren Roth and Rhiannon Sheets will represent the Boilermakers at the NCAA Championships, set for March 15-17 in Auburn, Ala. Fogle, a sophomore, qualified for the second year in a row. Roth was one of the nine Boilers to compete at the 2010 meet when Purdue served as the host of the national event. Sheets is a freshman.

The diving participants will be determined by next weekend's NCAA Zones. Maddie Miskulin and MacKenzie Tweardy have qualified for the Zone C meet in Bloomington, Ind.

Once a swimmer is invited to the NCAA Championships, she has the opportunity to compete individually in any event in which she has posted an NCAA provisional-qualifying time (B Cut). Individually, the swimmers with the Top 30 or 31 times in an event earn auto invites.
