HOLLAND, Mich. — Holland-native and University of Michigan swimmer, Ian Miskelley, died suddenly just shy of his 20th birthday.

"This tragic news is utterly devastating to our team," the university's swimming team tweeted.

Miskelley swam competitively for Holland Christian High School and Michigan Lakeshore Aquatics, helping his teams get to both state and national championships before earning a spot on the team at U of M.

Instead of flowers, the Miskelley family is asking donations be made to the Ian Miskelley Memorial Fund C/O the Holland/Zeeland Community Foundation.
