Kapeller is a junior at Minnetonka High School where she specializes mainly in sprint free and fly. As a freshman in the fall of 2017 she placed 3rd in the Minnesota High School AA State Meet with 23.54. A year later, representing Aquajets Swim Team at 2018 Winter Juniors West, she was 5th in the 50 free with a time of 22.86. She also competed in the 100 back (16th with 54.38) and 200 back and went a best time of 55.68 in the 100 fly. Kapeller went to NCSA Spring Championship in March and had top-8 finishes in the 50 free, 50 back and 50 fly. Half her best LCM times are from this summer, the other half from 2018. She went 1:01.68 in the 100m back at 2018 Summer Juniors. While that is faster than the 2020 Olympic Trials standard, she achieved the time before the qualifying period began.
Kapeller has kicked off her junior year of high school swimming with mid-season times of 22.88 in the 50 free, 25.47 in the 50 back, 54.03 in the 100 back, 54.45 in the 100 fly, and 51.25 in the 100 free. Her lifetime bests include:
Kapeller will add strength to the Cavaliers’ sprint group, and should be of even more value on relays. She would have just missed the B final in the 50 free at 2019 ACC Women’s Championships (it took 22.61 to make top 16). She also would have made the C finals in the 100 back and 100 fly. It took 47.74 to score in the 100 free, and 1:57.55 to get a second swim in the 200 back.
