ESPN3.com will stream finals sessions Friday and Saturday live. Additionally, ESPNU will air a 90-minute show at 8 p.m. ET, Wednesday, April 9.

Quinn earned his first career NCAA selection, as announced on Wednesday, March 12, in the 200 butterfly behind a school record time of 1:43.32 at this year’s Ivy League Championships.  Quinn’s time stands 17th-best in the country and earned him second team All-Ivy League honors. The junior will be joined by teammate Jakl in the event, who also posted his qualifying time at Ivies clocking in at 1:43.68.

For the second consecutive season, Jakl has earned a spot in both the 200 and 100 butterfly at the NCAA Championships. With a program record time of 46.48, the second team All-Ivy League honoree will enter the 100 fly with a top-25 best time in the nation.

Jakl will look to improve on solid performances in last year’s NCAA Championships. In 2013, the junior finished 19th in the 200 fly with a time of 1:44.37, becoming the first Columbia swimmer to compete in the butterfly events on the national stage in over a decade. In the 100 fly, he went on to place 35th overall with a time of 47.55.
