Futures A-finalist Adam Milling to Verbally Commits to Pitt

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Springfield, Illinois’s Adam Milling has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Pittsburgh beginning in the fall of 2020. Milling is a senior at Springfield High School; he swims for Springfield YMCA Swim Team and specializes in IM and breaststroke. Milling had a huge summer which culminated in several finals appearances at Des Moines Futures. He finished 11th in the 100m breast (1:06.30), 4th in the 200 IM (2:07.87), and 14th in the 400 IM (4:39.62). He also swam the 200 breast and led off the 400 and 800 free relays. He went lifetime bests and dropped gobs of time in the 100 free (54.90, -1.5 seconds), 200 free (1:58.58, -4.9 seconds), 100 breast (1:06.15, -3 seconds), 200 breast (2:29.51, -6.8 seconds), 200 IM (2:07.87,-11.7 seconds), and 400 IM (4:37.96, -10.8 seconds). He earned a Winter U.S. Open cut in his 200 IM.

His short-course season was no less impressive. Milling competed at 2019 YMCA National Short Course Championships and improved his lifetime bests in the 200 free, 100/200 breast, and 200/400 IM. He placed 6th in the 100 breast, 10th in the 200 breast, 7th in the 200 IM, and 11th in the 400 IM. Both breaststroke and both IM times were Winter Juniors cuts.

Top SCY times:

  • 100 breast – 56.75
  • 200 breast – 2:03.34
  • 200 IM – 1:50.44
  • 400 IM – 3:58.42
  • 100 free – 47.11
  • 200 free – 1:42.59

Milling will suit up for the Panthers with fellow class of 2024 commit Wesley Kephart.
