Tomahawk's Kylee Theiler holds fastest conference times in five events
TOMAHAWK - Every time Kylee Theiler walks onto the pool deck, she sees her name beside five school records.

"It just kind of seems right to hit the peak of my performance right at senior year,"Theiler said. "So I was super excited how things were going to go."

Not only has Theiler made school history, this season she has recorded the fastest Great Northern Conference times in five different events.

"I've put the time and effort to become a more well-rounded swimmer so to see it pay off was really exciting," Theiler said.

Theiler found her success early as a distance swimmer but now she can do it all.

"Being an older swimmer and athlete she realizes the responsibility and she's realized it's a lot harder," said Tomahawk swim coach Theresa L'Esperance 

Theiler believes choosing to swim for her high school rather than a club team helped pushed her to work even harder.

"I think our community here does a really good job of just taking advantage of the athletes that we have and really giving them good recognition and everything and it's nice to be recognized," Theiler said.

"To choose to swim for high school, they can have just as much success swimming for club," L'Esperance said.

The senior captain is on her way to making the fourth state appearance in her career. If she medals in Madison, she would become only the second four-year state medalist in Hatchet history. 

"I'd really like to come home as a state champion. I just really think that would be a really good culmination of my high school experience," Theiler said.

Theiler says she most definitely plans on swimming at the collegiate level. But she's not quite sure where just yet.

Tomahawk hosts Antigo on Thursday for Senior Night.
