Ever since Millin started swimming, it has been evident that she has a natural gift. This gift became even more apparent when she started swimming competitively. For the past four years Millin has been an important member of the Monona Grove girls swim team, specializing in the 100-meter butterfly. Millin has also been successful competing in relays and medleys as part of the school’s team.

“It was great to have Kelsey these past four years,” Monona Grove girls swim coach, Bekie Timmons said. “We wouldn’t have had the success we did if it had not been for her.”

Millin is also a part of the Madison East YMCA club for which she won the 100-meter butterfly in the 2009 All City competition.

Millin has an impressive record at the Division 2 state championship. Millin finished in second place in the 100-meter butterfly her freshman and senior years, and placed third her junior year. Millin also helped her team capture second place in the state competition her sophomore year. This past season Kelsey recorded the fifth fastest time in Division 2 state history for the butterfly.

Millin’s hard work and success is paying off. Kelsey Millin can hardly keep up with the phone calls she receives on a daily basis from several colleges vying for her talents. She will likely receive a scholarship for swimming no matter which college she chooses. Kelsey isn’t limiting her options, but has narrowed it down to a few schools.

“The main schools I’m interested in are [University of Connecticut] and UW-Madison,” Millin said. “It will depend on what kind of scholarships I’m offered.”

Kelsey is interested in pursuing a degree in pre-dental or business management. Kelsey looks forward to swimming in college and says that it will be a “challenge” as well as an “opportunity.”
