NEW COMMIT: Milton, Wis. native Danielle “Dani” Cramer has declared her verbal intention to continue her academic and swimming career at the University of Minnesota beginning in the fall of 2020.

Cramer, who owns the Winter Juniors standard in the 100 back, does her club swimming with J-Hawk Aquatic Club and most recently raced eight events at NCSAs after earning 100% best times at the Wisconsin LCM Championships. Last winter, she earned bronze medals in both backstroke events at the Wisconsin SCY Championships before going on to final in the 200 back at NCSAs.

Also competing for Milton High School, Cramer is a six-time Wisconsin DI State Championship finalist. She placed fifth in the 100 back and 15th in the 200 IM as a junior after placing ninth in the former as well as 15th in the 100 fly during her sophomore season.

She told Swimming World:

“I am so excited to announce my commitment to swim at the University of Minnesota! With amazing coaches, academics, and teammates, I couldn’t feel more at home! I can’t wait to be a gopher! #SkiUMah”

Her best times include:

  • 50 back – 26.86
  • 100 back – 55.44
  • 200 back – 1:59.43
  • 100 fly – 56.55
  • 200 fly – 2:05.27
  • 200 IM – 2:06.88
  • 400 IM – 4:29.90

When she suits up for the Gophers as a member of the class of 2024, Cramer will add her talents to training groups that’ll include Emily CookPatricia Van Law and Abby Erwin. She has consistently made improvements over the past three years, dropping five seconds in the 100 back, 12 in the 200 back, nine in the 200 IM and 30 in the 400 IM.
