Aly Tetzloff, whose name is all over the record wall at the Crown Point High School pool, is going to the state finals for a third consecutive year.

You wouldn’t know it by talking to the effervescent Tetzloff about all the records she has set at Crown Point.

“Records are made to be broken,” said Tetzloff, who qualified for the state meet in the 200 IM (2:02.10) and 100 fly (54.26). Her name is on at least a half a dozen pool and school records each, which are constantly changing for the sectional champion Bulldogs.

“I think it’s cool,” she said. “I don’t know. They’re just records. Hannah (Kukurugya) broke a lot (Saturday), and other people broke a lot. The relay ones are coming down. It’s just good to see new people getting up there.”

Records aside, Tetzloff, a junior, is the top seed in both her individual events at this weekend’s state meet at the Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis. Preliminaries begin at 5 p.m. Friday.

She’s also part of the 400 free relay with Rachael Bukowski, Kukurugya and Mackenzie Artim and the 200 medley relay with Bukowski, Kukurugya and Kelsi Artim that are both top seeds.

“She’s a key component on our relays to get us out there,” coach Bryon Angerman said of Tetzloff. “She split a .49 on that last relay (Saturday) which is like unheard of, so she’s going to be a very key element for us at the state meet on relays and her individual events.”

Tetzloff said she has a goal to finish in the top two spots in her individual events and help the relays place at the top also.

“If we get second, I think that is great, and that will definitely build up our team’s confidence for next year,” she said. “And next year I hope we do a ton better.”

Tetzloff’s times and work ethic have attracted the attention of the top college swim programs in the country. The University of Southern California and Indiana top her list of potential schools.

“She’s been recruited by pretty much three or four schools that are in the top 10 in the nation,” Angerman said. “IU, USC, Georgia, Stanford — these are schools that are looking at her, and obviously, when you get those kind of times that are close to state records, that’s what the colleges are looking for.

“They like the fact that she trains year around. She’s very diversified from sprinting to distances. That’s essential to her as a swimmer and as an athlete.”

Angerman said Tetzloff is a leader in and out of the pool.

“She leads by example for what she does in the pool,” he said.
