University of Minnesota head women's swimming and diving coach Terry Niesznerannounced Wednesday that Abigail Raatz has signed a National Letter of Intent to swim for the Gophers beginning in the 2013-14 season.
"We are very excited to have Abi as a Golden Gopher," Nieszner said. "She comes from the Schroeder Swim Club, where Dave Anderson has coached many elite-level swimmers. She will make an immediate impact and contribute to our already strong sprint tradition."
