2023-24 (Junior)
Maia Hall excelled in the 100 breaststroke and the 200 breaststroke events for the Huskers this season. The junior from Whitby, England hit the NCAA B Standard four times in the 100 breaststroke and eight times in the 200 breaststroke. At the Big Ten Championships, Hall clocked a time of 1:01.11 in the 100 breaststroke to earn a spot in the A final. She finished fifth-overall and earned a second-place spot on NU’s all-time list with a career-best 1:00.16. Hall also grabbed a fifth-place finish in the 200 breaststroke, finishing in 2:10.90. She went on to clock a career-best in the event during a time trial at the Mizzou Last Chance Meet. Her time of 2:09.87 puts her at second all-time for NU.

Hall picked up two NCAA B Standard Cuts at the mid-season Hawkeye Invitational. She qualified for the A final in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:01.84 and shaved off a few seconds in the finals for a second-place finish, earning her first B cut of the season (1:01.20). Hall also punched her ticket to the A final of the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:14.04 in the prelims. She went on to finish second in the finals with a time of 2:13.18. Hall finished the season with 15 top-three finishes, including six first-place finishes.

2022-23 (Sophomore)
Hall continued to progress and rack up achievements throughout her sophomore campaign. At the mid-season Hawkeye Invite, Hall clocked a career-best 2:10.76 in the 200 breaststroke to win the event and hit the NCAA B Standard Cut. That was the third-fastest time swam in Nebraska history. Hall added a third-place finish in the 100 breaststroke with a 1:01.72 and finished sixth in the 200 IM with a career-best 2:02.26.

At the Big Ten Championships, Hall won the 200 breaststroke B Final to finish ninth overall with a time of 2:11.63. In the 100 breaststroke, Hall clocked a career-best 1:00.76 to place 10th and move to fifth on Nebraska's all-time list.

Hall collected four-straight mid-season 200 breaststroke victories, including wins in duals against Iowa (2:20.64), Kansas (2:21.25) and Omaha (2:19.70). She also won the 100 breaststroke in 1:07.48 at the season-opening dual against SDSU.

Hall tallied six individual wins and 11 finishes within the top three throughout the season.

2021-22 (Freshman)
During her freshman campaign, Hall found success and was a consistent leader in the breaststroke group. She scored the second-most points at the Big Ten Championships for NU after making B-finals appearance in both the 100 and 200 breaststroke events. Hall finished 12th in the 200 breaststroke and 13th in the 100 breaststroke. Her 100 breaststroke prelims time of 1:00.98 puts her at fourth on Nebraska’s all-time list and her 200 breaststroke prelims time of 2:11.72 marks the fifth-fastest in Nebraska history.

Hall made her collegiate swim debut at the South Dakota State dual, where she swam to a third-place finish in the 200 IM and 200 medley relay. The freshman put up her first victory of the season in the 100 breaststroke at the Iowa dual (Oct. 23), followed by a fourth-place swim in the 100 fly. Hall swam to two consecutive fourth-place finishes in the 100 breaststroke, against Minnesota and Iowa State, while adding a third-place swim in the 200 breaststroke.

Against the Jayhawks, Hall dropped her 200 breaststroke time by almost three seconds to claim a runner-up finish, in addition to finishing third in the 100 breaststroke. A couple weeks after that, Hall swam five seconds faster in the 200 breast (2:14.62) to place third at the competitive Mizzou Invitational (Nov. 17-19). She nabbed another top-five finish in the 100 breaststroke with a 1:02.64.

Hall attacked the opportunity to swim against the best in the country at the U.S. Opens (Dec. 1-4), where the freshman earned a spot in the 200-meter breaststroke A-finals. She went on to finish eighth overall with a 2:38.43. In the 100-meter breaststroke, Hall added a B-finals appearance and swam to 12th place with a 1:12.98. She closed the dual season with two victories in the 200 breaststroke, including a career-best swim against Rutgers (Jan. 28).

Before Nebraska
A breaststroke specialist who was the 2017 British 15U National Champion in the 50-meter race, Hall has won multiple medals at the British National Championships and was the winner of the Junior Final at the British Olympic Trials in 2019. At the 2019 Scottish Short-Course National Championships, Hall finished fourth in the 50 (32.16), 100 (1:09.40) and 200 breaststroke (2:28.21). 
The daughter of Michael and Rachel Hall, Maia was born in Scarborough, England, on Oct. 19, 2002. She has one younger sister, Esme, and two younger brothers, Isaac and Luca. Maia is majoring in accounting. An Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2023, she is a two-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll choice. Maia was also a member of the 2023 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team. She has dual citizenship in both Great Britain and Australia after living in Queensland for several years. She chose Nebraska because she knew it was the “right place” for her. 

“After having several conversations with the coaches and team, I knew Nebraska was the right place for me,” Hall said. “The team made me feel extremely welcome, and I knew the Huskers were definitely something I wanted to be part of.”
