Rising high school senior Mackenzie Looze, daughter of Indiana University Swimming head coach Ray Looze and BHSS swimming co-head coach Kandis Looze, has made a verbal commitment to the Hoosiers for 2018-19.
“I have decided to continue my swimming career at Indiana University to swim under my father and the rest of his coaching staff. I’m from Bloomington Indiana so I’m not going too far.”
Swimming for Bloomington High School South at the 2017 IHSAA State Tournament, Looze finished fourth in the 200 IM, split a 28.43 in the breaststroke leg of the second-place 200 medley relay, and anchored the fourth-place 400 free relay in 50.65. She swims in the summer with Indiana Swim Team, which is coached by the IU swim team staff, and during the school year with her high school team, coached by Phil Cole and Kandis Looze. Squeezed in between summer and high school seasons, she swims with Bloomington Swim Club, coached by Jeff Lebeau.
