Kansas University senior Chelsie Miller was named Big 12 Swimmer of the Year on Tuesday, and KU coach Clark Campbell was named Coach of the Year.
Miller is the first Jayhawk so honored by the league and first swimmer from a school other than Texas or Texas A&M.;
“It means so much to get Kansas the recognition,” Miller said. “I wouldn’t be anywhere without the program, the coaches and especially the team. To have my name attached to Kansas is special in itself.”
Miller ended her KU career as the owner of six school records — 200 IM, 400 IM, 500 free, 1,000 free, 1,650 free and 200 fly.
