U-M Adds Kyriakidis, Stovern to 2017-18 Recruiting Class

April 19, 2017

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan head swimming and diving coach Mike Bottom announced on Wednesday (April 19) the addition of swimmers Seth Kyriakidis (Nashville, Tenn.) and Nathan Stovern (Tampa, Fla.) to the team's 2017-18 recruiting class.

"We're excited to add both of these guys to our program," said Bottom. "Seth is an up-and-comer and has dropped a lot of time in the last year, and Nathan is a hard-working freestyler with a lot of untapped potential."

Kyriakidis swims for Ensworth Aquatics and primarily focuses on the butterfly and breaststroke. He is a seven-time Tennessee State Championships finalist, finishing third in both the 100-yard butterfly and 100-yard breaststroke in 2017. He also finaled in both the 200-yard butterfly (third) and 100-yard butterfly (fourth) at the 2017 Speedo Greensboro Sectionals.

Stovern swims for the Berkeley Barracudas and primarily focuses on the freestyle. He was a two-time finalist at the 2016 Florida 1A State Championships, taking fourth in both the 100-yard freestyle and 200-yard freestyle. He also swam a leg on Berkeley Prep's third-place 200-yard freestyle relay.

Kyriakidis and Stovern join a previously-announced five-man class: diver Ross Todd (Happy Valley, Australia) and swimmers Luiz Borges (São Paulo, Brazil), William Roberts (Annapolis, Md.), Ricardo Vargas (Cuernavaca, Mexico) and graduate transfer James Peek (Forest Row, England/Duke).
