Off-field faces: Mikaela Koltz, adult swimmer, Cedar Park

What is your favorite memory of the Cedar Park swim team?

A few years ago, the team had a swimmer (Stella Shipps) filming a music video before the state met with a cheesy love song. It makes everyone laugh every year. Last year she gave me permission to continue her tradition. Making a music video was a good way to de-stress before a performance.

How did you start swimming?

I have always been around the pool. My mom (Maureen Koltz) was very concerned about water safety to make sure I could survive if I fell into the pool. I didn’t like swimming until we moved to Wisconsin (at age 8). It was the first place where I learned that swimming can be fun and I can have friends who also love the sport and we wanted each of them to succeed.

Tell me about your training schedule.

So with (Nitro Club) we train doubles on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We start at 5:40 (am) and go at 7:15 and then in the evenings from 5:30 to 7:30. On Mondays and Wednesdays we will train from 17:30 to 19:30 and we will have another 45 minutes of training out of the water. On Friday we train from 5:30 to 7:15, and on Saturday from 6:00 to 7:15 and another 45 minutes to prepare.
