Lakeview, Minnesota’s Liz Thull made a verbal commitment and signed an NLI to swim for Illinois State University beginning in the 2018-19 season. She will suit up for the Redbirds with fellow verbal commit Sarah Hein.
“I’m so excited to be a Redbird and swim at ISU next year! Go Birds!”
Thull is a senior at Lakeville North High School. She is a four-time Section 1AA champion (200 free in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and 100 fly in 2016) and was named Section 1AA Swimmer of the Year as a junior. She ended her junior season with First Team All-Conference and All-State honors and was Lakeville North’s MVP. Thull finished 13th in the 200 free (1:54.93) and swam legs on Lakeville North’s 200 free relay (24.58) and 400 free relay (53.18 leadoff) at the 2017 MSHSL Girls AA Swim & Dive Championships earlier this month.
Thull swims year-round for South Metro Storm. She had an outstanding long-course season this summer, earning new PBs in the 50/100/200 free, 50/100 back, and 100/200 fly. Already this fall she has improved her SCY 200 fly time. Her top performances include:
- 200 fly: 2:07.53
- 100 fly: 57.32
- 200 free: 1:53.70
- 100 free: 53.13
