I am unbelievably excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Kentucky! The coaches and the team made me feel like this is somewhere I can be great. I am looking forward to representing the Big Blue Nation! Go Cats!!

Kentucky has, in recent years, garnered the nickname ‘Backstroke U’ for the successes of swimmers like Danielle and Ali GalyerAsia Seidt, and Bridgette Alexander, particularly in the 200 back. Though she’s not yet in SEC scoring range, Miller’s 100 and 200 back are among her strongest events. Her best race is the 200 free, where Kentucky also has a recent tradition of excellence. Geena Freriks was crowned SEC Champion in the 200 free last season, and her, the Galyer sisters, and Seidt combined for a school record in the 800 free relay at NCAAs, finishing 6th in the nation in the process.

Miller joins Kelly RodriguezIsabella GatiRiley Gaines, and Sophie Sorenson in Kentucky’s class of 2022.
