ME student Connor Jaeger wins NCAA Title



Competing in the NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships in Austin, Texas, ME senior Connor Jaeger started the night off on March 29th by defending his title in the 1,650-yard freestyle. Jaeger’s time was 14.29.27. He is the first U-M swimmer to win back-to-back individual national championships since Tyler Clary in the 400-yard individual medley (2009-10) and the first U-M swimmer to repeat in the 1,650-yard freestyle since Tom Dolan (1995-96). The U-M swimming team — last year’s 2013 NCAA champion — finished fourth in the championship.

In his studies in Mechanical Engineering, Jaeger is working to discover the potential impact of using additive manufacturing in the orthotics and prosthetics industry.
