Ayala swimmer Kenisha Liu qualifies for Olympic Trials

Senior Kenisha Liu of Ayala has qualified for the 2016 Olympic Trials in a third event.

Liu, the Daily Bulletin’s Girls Swimmer of the Year the past spring, recorded a 56.19 today in finishing fifth in the 100 freestyle at the Speedo Junior National Championships in Texas.

Liu set a qualifying mark in the 200 individual medley (2:18.61) at the California-Nevada Sectional long course meet earlier this month in Santa Clarita.

In December she set a qualifying mark in the 200 breaststroke at a meet in Federal Way, Wash.

The Olympic Trails will be held next June in Omaha, Nebraska. The Olympic trials meet is competitive and only the top two in each event will qualify to represent the United States in ‎Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Liu has not decided on a college yet but is being recruited by many Pac 12 schools and has the grades to go wherever she chooses.

Liu earned All-American honors this year from the NISCA in six events. Also earning national recognition were Mikki Thompson, Shannon Steele and Megan Delgado.
