Senior Spotlight: Sault Ste. Marie’s Innerebner Looks to Continue Dominance in Milwaukee

MISportsNow is putting the spotlight on northern Michigan high school senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Sault Ste. Marie senior Andrew Innerebner dominated the Upper Peninsula swimming scene over the course of his four years, claiming 11 state championships while breaking four Upper Peninsula records.

A two-time Upper Peninsula Swimmer of the Year, Innerebner is headed to NCAA Division I University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the fall.

Innerebner is following in his mother’s footsteps. She was an All-American diver at Northern Michigan University.

“My mom was an All-American diver in college, so she kind of liked the water and kind of got me into it when I was really young,” Innerebner said. “I started competitive swimming in first grade and kind of just took off from there. At the beginning of each season, we’d have to write these goals down on a note card. And that was like my first goal is swim at a DI university in college. That’s like always been at the top of the goals.”

Innerebner plans to study civil engineering and has been accepted as an engineering scholar.
