Lucy Miller of Delray Beach, FL has announced her decision to swim at the University of Miami beginning in the 2021-2022 season. Her club team, Saint Andrew’s Aquatics, congratulated her on her commitment with an Instagram post:
Miller swims year-round for Saint Andrew’s Swimming. In December, she competed at the 29th Annual Speedo Winter Championships in Plantation, FL. She swam 7 individual events as well as 3 relays. On Thursday evening, she took part in the 200-medley relay and the 200-free relay, which both placed second behind Azura Florida Aquatics’ relays. Miller swam the breaststroke leg of the medley relay, splitting a 29.98. Later that evening she led off the 200 free relay, touching with a time of 24.52. She made it back to finals in six out of her seven events. In the 200 breast, Miller went a 2:25.77 to earn 4th place in finals. She went on to earn the gold medal in the 50 free (23.92). Similarly, she won the 50 breast with a new personal best time of 29.77. Miller competed in the 100 free on the same evening, coming from behind Hanna Smith of Pine Crest to finish 5th with a time of 53.55. During the final session of the meet, Miller earned gold medals in both the 100 breast (1:05.40) and the 100 IM (58.58).
In early November, Miller qualified for the FHSAA Swimming and Diving 1A State Championships. The Saint Andrew’s School junior swam 2 relays and 2 individual events at the meet. The Saint Andrew’s women took home the silver medal in the 200-medley relay. Gabriella Bertrano led off the backstroke leg, Miller swam the breast (28.49), Nicole Aguilar swam fly, and Stella Urness anchored. Miller later swam the 50 free, where she placed 5th and earned a personal best time of 23.67. She led off the 200-free relay (24.07), followed by teammates Aspen Gersper, Erin Miller, and Emily Trieschmann. The women were able to hold off Trinity Prep to earn Saint Andrew’s another silver medal. Miller earned another 5th place finish in the 100 breast (1:04.47), taking 1.01 seconds off of her entry time. The Saint Andrew’s women finished the meet second overall, falling only to Bolles High School.
Top SCY Times:
- 50 breast – 29.77
- 100 breast – 1:04.22
- 50 free – 23.67
- 200 IM – 2:09.08
- 100 IM – 58.58
- 200 breast – 2:25.16
When she joins the University of Miami’s women’s team in the fall of 2021, Miller will be one of their top breaststroke swimmers. Her 100 breast time will place her behind Zorry Mason and Andrea Todorovic, while her 50 breast time will place her second behind Mason. In addition, her 50 free time will be among the fastest, giving her the opportunity to earn a spot on the team’s 200-free relay.
