CP peaking at the right time
As far as individual races go, it’s been awfully difficult for region teams to halt Crown Point.
Case in point, two of the biggest meets in the area, over the course of the last two weekends. Two weeks ago the Bulldogs front-end talent took nine out of 12 events at the Highland Invite (a great barometer of what the Lake County Sectional could look like) and finished third overall. And this past weekend, the Bulldogs again had nine wins and a third-place finish at the Duneland Conference meet.
“We pretty much did the same thing (at DAC) and yeah, it’s pretty much great for not just this year, but years to come,” CP coach Bryon Angerman said about the high totals after the DAC meet on Saturday.
With the abilities of Aly Tetzloff and Holly Schuster, and other promising swimmers, Angerman is confident about CP’s chances to move up from last year’s 10th place finish at state.
“That’s the goal; that’s the meet that we’re going to stay focused on,” he said.
