ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan men's swimming and diving head coach Mike Bottom announced on Tuesday (June 7) the addition of Daniel Miller (Toledo, Ohio/St. Francis de Sales) and Jeremy Raisky (Birmingham, Mich./Berkley) to the Wolverines for the 2011-12 season.
"One of the things we have excelled at over the past three years is developing athletes who have the desire to get better," Bottom said. "Both of these young men have that desire, both in the pool and out of the pool. We are excited as a coaching staff and as a team to add these two for next year."
Miller helped lead St. Francis de Sales to a runner-up showing at the 2011 OHSAA Division 1 Championships, swimming on two state champion relay teams to go with a pair of sixth-place showings in the 100-yard (46.85) and 200-yard freestyle (1:41.69) races. He swam the third leg of the winning 200-yard freestyle relay and the second leg of the victorious 400-yard freestyle relay.
Raisky picked up two runner-up finishes at the 2011 MHSAA Division II State Championships, touching the wall in 49.70 in the 100-yard butterfly and finishing in 52.26 in the 100-yard backstroke. Both times are lifetime bests for Raisky, who also holds the Oakland Activities Association (OAA) record in the 100-yard butterfly and the OAA meet standard in the same event.
The duo joins Richard Funk (Edmonton, Alberta), Justin Glanda (Rochester Hills, Mich.) and Bruno Ortiz (Tokyo, Japan), who all signed National Letters of Intent during the early signing period.
Michigan graduated six senior swimmers from the 2010-11 squad.
