Spencer Carl, who hails from Holland, Michigan and attended West Ottawa High School, will transfer to Michigan in the fall along with Dylan Boyd (from Arizona State) and Leo Zabudkin (from Wingate). He will have three years of eligibility remaining when he arrives in Ann Arbor.
Carl spent his freshman year of college at University of Louisville where he specialized in fly and free. He swam in four dual meets for the Cardinals and at Winter Nationals in December. The year before, he had won both the 200 free (1:37.08) and 500 free (4:26.89) at the 2017 MHSAA Division I State Championships. He also anchored West Ottawa’s 200 free relay (20.70) to 3rd place and led off their 4th-place 400 free relay (45.93).
Representing Michigan Lakeshore Aquatics at last summer’s Speedo Junior Nationals, he placed 17th in the 200 free (1:52.91) and 21st in the 200 back (2:05.11). In 2016 he had been 6th in the 100 fly and 7th in the 200 fly.
