Fort Mill’s Wiggins to swim for Tennessee


The Volunteers called and she answered.

Fort Mill High swimmer Meg Wiggins has committed to continue her career competing for the University of Tennessee.

Wiggins, 18, is a preferred walk-on at Tennessee, meaning she has a guaranteed roster spot . She will compete in the 100 and 200 breaststroke for the Volunteers.

Wiggins said picked Tennessee over the College of Charleston and the University of Houston.

“Tennessee was the right place to go,” she said. “They really make it so everyone feels together and I like the make up of the team unity.”

Wiggins has been swimming for Fort Mill High for five seasons and is a two-time state champion as part of the 2011 200- and 400-yard free relay squads.

She has been swimming competitively for the past eight years and didn’t get started until she was 10 years old.

“I didn’t like to sweat,” Wiggins said. “All the other sports you sweat at. I chose the water, because you stay cool in the water.”

Wiggins said she plans on majoring in business analytics at Tennessee.
