“Very proud and honored to announce my commitment to continue my swimming and academic career at the University of Michigan! #goblue”
Miskelley is a senior at Holland Christian High School (whose boys’ team finished third at the 2017 MHSAA Boys D3 Swim & Dive Championships in March), although he does not participate in high school swimming. He trains and competes year-round with Michigan Lakeshore Aquatics, where he is a true utility swimmer, excelling across the board. He competed in the 200 free, 200 back, 200 IM and 400 IM at Winter Juniors East, and wrapped up the SCY season at the Michigan 13/14 & Open Short Course State Championships getting new times in the 200 free, 200 back, and 100 fly.
