UM Aquatics Hall of Fame

Minnesota’s Aquatic Hall of Fame was started in 1984. The aim of the Hall of Fame is to give recognition to outstanding alumni who have contributed to the University’s program. Another purpose is to provide role models for current Golden Gopher student-athletes. A major emphasis is placed on academics, and all members have achieved excellence both academically and athletically.
