USA Swimming Scholastic All-American and NISCA All-American Megan Glass has verbally committed to swim for the University of Michigan in the class of 2023; she will join the already-verballed Kaitlynn Sims in the fall of 2019. Glass hails from Cincinnati, Ohio where she is a junior at Ursuline Academy and swims for the club team Blue Ash YMCA Swim Team.
“I am beyond excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swimming careers at the University of Michigan in the class of 2023! I cannot thank my family, friends, teammates, and coaches enough for getting me to this point. I cannot wait to be a part of such an amazing team and school! Go blue!!?〽?”
A fly/free/IM specialist, Glass set the Ohio High School Division I record in the 100 fly with her 2017 sophomore season victory, going 53.34. She repeated her Division I state title this season with 53.51. At the 2018 state meet, Glass also contributed a second-place finish in the 200 free (1:48.83), a 23.86 butterfly leg on the winning 200 medley relay, and a 49.67 anchor on the fourth-place 400 free relay, all of which helped the Lions come in 5th in the overall team rankings.
In club swimming, Glass is coming off a strong showing at 2018 YMCA Short Course National Championships. She won the 100 fly (53.42) and 200 fly (1:58.05), placed third in the 200 free (1:48.06), and took 7th in the 200 IM (2:03.83). She left the meet with new best times in the 100/200 free, 200 fly, and 200 IM.
Glass would have scored at 2018 B1G Championships in the B final of the 100 fly, joining freshman Alexis Margett. (Sophomore Vanessa Krause and freshman Emma Cleason were A-finalists.) She also would have joined Cleason and freshman Kate Krolikowski in the B-final of the 200 fly. (Krause won the event; freshman Sierra Schmidt was an A-finalist).
