St. Joseph’s Academy swimmer Amy Miller committed to Texas A&M on Monday.
Miller, a sprint freestyle-breaststoke specialist, picked the Aggies after making five official visits. Her other finalists were South Carolina, Utah. Nebraska and Ohio State.
“It was an honor to get the chance to visit Texas A&M,” Miller said. “I’ve competed in meets there before, but when I learned about the school and the athletic program, the more impressed I was.
“And when I went for the visit, I loved it. The chance to go to one of the top programs in the country was something I couldn’t turn down.”
Miller helped St. Joseph’s Academy win the Division I state title last fall by winning the 100-yard breaststroke in 1 minute, 4.34 seconds. She also finished second in the 100 freestyle in 51.79 seconds.
Over the summer, Miller just missed a junior national qualifying time in the 50-meter freestyle while competing for Crawfish Aquatics. Miller swam a 26.75 in the 50 freestyle, just off the junior qualifying time of 26.67, at the Louisiana Long Course Championships held at the LSU Natatorium
