NEW COMMIT: Hailing from Trabuco Canyon, Calif., breaststroker Malia Mills has verbally committed to the University of Hawaii, Manoa as their first member of the class of 2024.

Mills, who swims year-round with Irvine Novaquatics, owns a pair of Summer Juniors standards and most recently raced two events at the MVN Summer Junior Olympics. Last winter, she competed in both events at Juniors West before going on to place eighth in the 100 breast at Carlsbad Speedo Sectionals.

Also competing for Tesoro High School, Mills is a six-time CIF Southern DI Section Championship finalist. She placed fourth in the 50 free and 11th in the 100 breast as a junior after racing to second in both events during her sophomore season. The NISCA All-American also finished 13th in the 50 free at the CIF State Championships during her rookie campaign.

Her best times include:

  • 100 breast – 1:02.95
  • 200 breast – 2:22.24
  • 50 free – 23.15
  • 200 IM – 2:05.60

When she suits up for the Rainbow Warriors at the start of the 2020-21 season, Mills will add valuable depth to their breaststroke and sprint freestyle groups. She would’ve scored in the B-final of the 50 free and 100 breast at the 2019 MPSF Championships where Hawaii earned their third-straight conference title.
