BOISE, Idaho - Boise State swimming and diving head coach Kristin Hill announced the signing of Mik Ranslem (Saugus, Calif./William S. Hart HS) to a National Letter of Intent Tuesday.

"Mik comes from an outstanding club program, Canyons Aquatics, in the Santa Clarita Valley of California, and she is one of the fastest recruits we have ever signed at Boise State in the 200 fly and 200 IM," Hill said. "Two of our top priorities with this recruiting class were those two events, so Mik was a great fit from the start. Her progression with her club coach, Coley Stickels, over the last few years has been outstanding, which is really important in our evaluation process of swimmers we are recruiting. When we couple that with our great rate of improvement in swimmers with our program over four years, she has everything in place for a really incredible collegiate career. Mik has diverse strengths, with speed in the 100 fly, 50 free, 100 free, and strength in the 400 IM, so she really has the ability to make a great impact right away. She is a hard worker and a strong student which is a great fit for our team culture. We can't wait to get her on campus."

Ranslem will come to Boise State from William S. Hart in Saugus, Calif. The school-record holder in the 100 fly and 200 IM, Ranslem finished tied for fourth in the 100 fly at the CIF Southern Section Championships in 2014. As a junior in 2013, Ranslem finished fifth in the 100 fly and ninth in the 200 IM as Hart finished third in the team standings. Her top prep 200 IM time (2:00.91) is already 0.68 of a second under the current NCAA B standard for the event and her top 100 fly time (55.19) is just seven-tenths of a second off of the current NCAA B standard.

A 2013 Academic All-American, Ranslem is also active in the community as a member of the Key Club and a Special Olympics volunteer.

"I envisioned my next four years of college and couldn't see myself anywhere besides Boise State," Ranslem said. "As I leave my club coach and transition to my college coach, I needed to be confident that I would be happy where I was swimming and that my new coach could help me continue to improve and meet my swimming goals. I have found that in Kristin and Boise State, and after visiting the school and meeting the swimmers it was an easy choice."
