Prep Swimming: Gray Stone’s Breanna Miller signs with Catawba

Staff report

Gray Stone Day School senior Breanna Miller has signed a national letter-of-intent with Catawba College’s swimming program.

Miller lives in Salisbury and has competed for Salisbury’s Tidal Wave Aquatics as well as Gray Stone.

“I couldn’t be more proud that Breanna has chosen to further her swimming career as a Catawba Indian,” said Shelby Carrion, assistant coach at Tidal Wave Athletics. “As a coach, you appreciate athletes that put in 100 percent in the pool and 100 percent outside of the pool. Breanna is one of those athletes and Catawba will be lucky to have an athlete like her.”

As a club swimmer, Miller has qualified for Senior Champs multiple times as well as the Powerade State Games. In the State Games last summer, Breanna swam first-place races in the 200 backstroke, 200 butterfly, 200 IM and 400 freestyle.

As a member of the Gray Stone team, the Stanly County champions, the 5-foot-6 Miller has been all-county and all-conference three straight years. She’s been a regional qualifier all three years and has competed in the 1A/2A state championships every year.

As a junior in the 2017 state championships in Cary, Miller placed eighth in the 500 freestyle and 10th in the 200 IM. She swam the third leg on the 200 free relay team that finished eighth and was first in the pool for the 400 free relay team that finished 12th. She helped Gray Stone finish 10th in team scoring.

Miller’s personal bests are 2:17.25 in the 200 IM and 4:52.03 in the 400 IM.

While swimming takes up most of Miller’s time, she participates in school clubs and volunteers. She has been a member of Octagon Club, Knight Nation Club, Young Life and National Honor Society and volunteers at Rowan Helping Ministries.

Miller plans to major in environmental and marine biology at Catawba.
