Sophie Housey, Former Michigan All-American Retires From Swimming


Former Michigan All-American swimmer Sophie Housey has retired from swimming.

Housey made the announcement on social media on Wednesday.

Housey swam at the University of Michigan before transferring to Texas A&M to swim this year. But she has opted to return to Michigan and retire from swimming.

“To the sport I once loved, I cannot be more thankful to write this. After lots of consideration, I have decided to retire from swimming. I want to thank my coaches, family and friends for allowing me to have a successful career!” Sophie Housey wrote. “I am thankful to have had the opportunity to swim at Texas A&M, however, after my short time there I came to the realization that my love for the sport had dwindled and my decision was clear.

“Choosing what is best for me now and in the future was a large part of this decision. With that being said, I am thrilled to be back home as a regular student at the University of Michigan to finish my degree. My college years have been an absolute rollercoaster, but I feel confident and fulfilled in leaving the sport knowing all that I’ve accomplished.”

 

Sophie Housey had multiple years of eligibility remaining, but opted to close her competitive career.

At Michigan, Housey was an All-American in the 400 fre relay and honorable mention in the 200 free relay and 800 free relay in 2021.
