In Hill’s seven years, Michigan swimmers set program records in eight individual races and on all five relays, including the national championship-winning 200-yard medley relay team of Miguel Ortiz, Bruno Ortiz, Sean Fletcher and Zack Turk, which set NCAA, NCAA Championship and US Open records at the 2013 NCAA Championships.
One of the biggest benefactors to Hill’s coaching was Paul Powers, who was Big Ten champion and NCAA All-American in the 50-yard freestyle in both 2015 and 2016.
At the 2016 Big Ten Championships, Powers became the second swimmer in Big Ten history to go under the 19-second barrier in the 50-yard freestyle, setting a Big Ten record (18.85).
Previously, he was the Head Coach of the Florida Keys Swim Club and an Assistant Coach on the Race Club. Hill was a swimmer at the University of Maryland. Mark is married to Jessica and has two wonderful children, Cameron and Sydney.
