Jacob Miller Commits to Milligan University With Team-Leading Times

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.

Jacob Miller of Roanoke, Virginia has announced his commitment to Milligan University for the fall of 2022. 

“I am thrilled to announce my commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at Milligan University. I would like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for their continued support and helping me reach my goals. I also want to thank Coach Scarth and his swim team for welcoming me. I’m excited to be a part of such an amazing swim team! Go WaterBuffs!!!”

Miller is a senior at Cave Spring High School, where he is a 4-time VHSL Class 3A State Championship finalist across the 200 and 500 freestyle events. In 2019, he placed 5th in the 200 free (1:49.00) and 7th in the 500 (4:52.64). A year later, Miller placed 5th in the 500 freestyle (4:48.03) and 6th in the 200 freestyle (1:47.58). 

Best Times SCY 

  • 200 free – 1:45.92
  • 500 free – 4:42.89 
  • 1000 free – 9:56.95
  • 1650 free – 16:23.77 

When he arrives at Milligan next fall, Miller should have an immediate impact as both an individual and relay swimmer. With his best times in the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle, Miller would rank as the fastest swimmer on Milligan’s roster this season. He would also rank 3rd in the 200 freestyle and 2nd in the 1000 freestyle, with multiple NAIA Championship Provisional cuts under his belt. 

At the 2021 Appalachian Athletic Conference Championships,  Milligan ran away with the men’s team title, scoring a total of 819 points and winning 10 events. The team was led by Stephen Gilbert, who won the 200 IM, 400 IM, and 200 back. Ben Hawkins led the team in the 500 freestyle, claiming first with a time of 4:42.30. Hawkins is currently a junior at Milligan and will overlap one season with Miller when he arrives on campus next year. 

With his commitment, Miller is slated to join a large class that already includes Michael Cellucci, Zachary Nelson, Ben Tomberlin, Spencer Hall, Jack Allen, and Peter Gilbert.
