Diver Jiselle Miller has joined a wave of females in the class of 2022 to verbally commit to the University of Louisville this week. A junior at Northridge High School in Middlebury, Indiana in the northern part of the state, she’ll make the 4-hour drive south to Louisville just across the Kentucky state line.
In 2019, as a freshman, Miller placed 8th at the Indiana High School State Championship meet on the 1-meter, the only discipline competed in most high school diving meets. As a sophomore, she finished 2nd at her sectional meet. She then finished 13th in prelims to advance to the semi-finals, but was 18th in the semis to miss scoring.
Miller’s best event is the 3-meter, and she does dive both 1-meter and platform.
At the 2019 USA Diving Zone C Championships, she placed 3rd on the 3-meter and qualified for the USA Diving Junior National Championships. At Junior Natinoals, she finished 13th on 3-meter.

Miller dives at the Indiana International School of Diving under coach Robert Burns, who is also her high school coach.
The Louisville women ranked about mid-pack in the ACC in women’s diving last season, though historically they’re a little better than that.
Their 2nd-best individual scorer among swimming & diving combined at last year’s ACC Championships was senior Molly Fears, one of the best divers in program history. She scored 71 points, led by a 4th-place finish on 3-meter.
She was twice named ACC Diver of the Week, and as a junior became Louisville’s first diver to earn Honorable Mention All-American honors via a 10th-place finish on platform.
As a team, the Cardinals placed 3rd at last year’s ACC Championship meet, more than 200 points behind NC State and almost 300 points ahead of UNC.
Miller joins a class of 2022 that includes the #6 recruit in the class Rye Ulett, and Virginia High School runner-up Jordan Durocher. Ulett and Durocher both announced their commitments this week as well.
