MN Distance Freestyler Alivia Lindorfer Verbals to Wisconsin

St. Paul, Minnesota’s Alivia Lindorfer has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Wisconsin for 2019-20. Lindorfer is a senior at North High School in North St. Paul; she swims year-round for St. Croix Swim Club.

“I am so excited to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I can’t thank my friends, family and coaches enough for helping me get to this point! GO BADGERS!❣️👐”

Lindorfer swam for North at the Minnesota Girls’ Class AA State Meet as a freshman and a sophomore, finishing 14th in the 200 free (1:54.60) and 8th in the 500 free (5:12.28) her sophomore year. In club swimming, she specializes in the mile and 200 fly and is a Winter Juniors qualifier in the 400/500 free, 1000 free, and 200 fly. At the Minnesota LSC Senior Long Course Championships this summer she won the 800 free, 1500 free, 200 fly, was runner-up in the 200/400 free, and took third in the 100 fly, all the while earning PBs in all six events, including a Winter Juniors cut in the 200 fly (2:17.77).

Last spring Lindorfer competed at the 2018 TYR ISCA Junior Championship Cup, winning the 1000 free and taking home silver medals in the 500 free and 1650 free.
