NEW COMMITS: The University of Wisconsin – Madison has earned a pair of verbal pledges from Alivia Lindorfer and Carly Zlotnikoff, both of whom will join the Badgers as members of the class of 2023.

Lindorfer specializes in distance freestyle while Zlotnikoff’s best events are the 50/100 free combo and both swimmers will be extremely valuable when they arrive on campus for the 2019-20 season. The Badgers are currently entering their first season under head coach Yuri Suguiyama.

Lindorfer does her club swimming with Saint Croix Swim Club where she has earned her Winter Juniors standards in a trio of events. The St. Paul, Minn. native capped off her summer season as a three-time champion at the Minnesota LCM Senior Championships with a lifetime best in all of her events. She won the 1000 free and was the runner-up in the 500 free and mile at the TYR Junior National Cup last March.

A current senior at North High School, Lindorfer competed at the Minnesota 2A State Championships as a freshman and sophomore and was a three-time finalist. She has made impressive progress over the past two seasons, shaving off 12 seconds in the 500, 29 in the 1000 and 35 in the mile.

She told Swimming World:

“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!”

Her best times include:

  • 500 free – 4:52.98
  • 1000 free – 10:02.57
  • 1650 free – 16:49.64
  • 200 fly – 2:05.17

Hailing from Lower Gwynedd, Penn., Zlotnikoff swims year-round with Central Bucks Swim Team and has her Winter Juniors cuts in both the 50 and 100 free. She notched three lifetime bests and registered a fifth-place finish in the 100m free at the Middle Atlantic Senior LCM Championships over the summer and also competed at Christiansburg Speedo Sectionals.

Zlotnikoff also swims for Wissahickon Senior High School and is a five-time Pennsylvania 3A State Championship finalist. The NISCA All-American finished sixth in the 50 free and seventh in the 100 free during her junior season.

She told Swimming World:

“After my visit to the University of Wisconsin, I knew it had everything I was looking for. Great academics, a beautiful campus, coaches who really care about their swimmers and a very close group of kids that made me feel welcomed.“

Her best times include:

  • 50 free – 23.95
  • 100 free – 50.80
  • 200 free – 1:51.33
  • 500 free – 5:00.00
