Congrats to junior men's swimmer Connor Jaeger and junior women's gymnast Joanna Sampson on being named 2012-13 Michigan Athletes of the Year.

"Joanna and Connor are most deserving of the Female and Male Athlete of the Year awards," said David Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "Both individuals stood out above the rest in what has been a stellar year for Michigan Athletics. Joanna and Connor take great pride in representing Michigan, and we are pleased that both student-athletes will be returning this Fall for their senior seasons. We look forward to watching them continue to lead the women's gymnastics and men's swimming and diving programs to be leaders and best."
