CROWN POINT | Thursday’s preliminaries at the Crown Point Sectional served as a dress rehearsal for Saturday’s finals.

The host Bulldogs gabbed the top billing with eight of the 11 No. 1 seeds.

“We got ourselves set up for Saturday,” said Crown Point coach Bryon Angerman, whose Bulldogs are looking for their first title since 2007.

Diving preliminaries are at 9 a.m. and the swimming and diving finals are at 1 p.m.

Crown Point’s Aly Tetzloff and Hannah Kukurugya each won two No.1 seeds in individual events. Tetzloff won the 200 IM and 100 fly, while Kukurugya won the 200 and 500 frees.

“I added time from my personal bests, but it’s the first day of sectionals and I have another day to go,” Tetzloff said. “I think I’ll improve. I hope I improve at least.”

Holly Schuster was the top seed in the 100 breast for Crown Point, which also took the top spot in all three relays.

“They swam really, really good today, and there was a lot of time drop,” Tetzloff said of her teammates. “I’m really excited how we’re going into Saturday.”

Angerman said everyone will take it up a notch in the finals.

“Come Saturday, you’re really going to see some fast swimming up and down from all the teams,” Angerman said. “I think Lake Central, Munster, and Highland had a couple girls in there. It’s really going to be a fast meet.

“There’s going to be three or four girls going down to state in some events, and normally you get one or two. This is one of the fastest sectionals in the state.”

Angerman said the ultimate goal is the state meet, but the girls really want to win the sectional.

“We’re in a position now to be right there with Munster.” he said.

Munster’s Mary Beth Blocher was the top seed in the 50 free, while Highland’s Jacklyn Smailis was No. 1 in the 100 back. Lake Central’s Victoria Springman was first in the 100 free.

Angerman said all his 14 swimmers set out what they wanted to do in the prelims.

“We treated today with some of those just like a practice for them, and then Saturday is our big meet,” Angerman said.
