Jane Ellen Swagerty Hill (born July 30, 1951), née Jane Ellen Swagerty, is a former American competition swimmer and Olympic medalist. Swagerty represented the United States at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Swagerty received a bronze medal for her third-place finish in the women's 100-meter backstroke. She also swam the backstroke leg in the preliminary heats of the women's 100-meter medley relay for the gold medal-winning U.S. team, but did not receive a medal under the 1968 international swimming rules because she did not swim in the event final.[1]

Swagerty is the cousin of former professional basketball player Keith Swagerty.[2]
