Milner will swim next fall for the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Utah finished fifth at the 2021 PAC-12 swimming championships. Going in to her senior season Milner is a double-double state champion after winning the 100 freestyle and the 100 backstroke in back-to-back state meets with huge margins of victory. Last year, her sizzling time of 50.98 seconds in the freestyle was nearly three seconds faster than her hearest competitor, and her 56.58 winning time in the backstroke was more than two seconds clear of the field.
