Hillsboro’s Lauryn Vogt – Poll Winner Presented By Hutchinson Community College

By Hayden Swope

Lauryn Vogt of Hillsboro has spent years dedicating herself to swimming, and it all paid off last season as she came home a state champion in the 50 free. 

“I swim with my club swim team the Nitros of Kansas during the offseason and before the season starts I set goals and try to achieve them,” Vogt said. “One thing I am really working on right now is improving my underwater skills, making them faster with a stronger kick. Last year I had a shoulder injury early fall which I was in physical therapy for and then later developed mononucleosis in the winter. Since then I have been trying to stay healthy and get stronger.”

Coming off of an injury, Vogt hopes to achieve all of her season’s goals and more.

“This season I want to win all my races or place top three at each meet and get best times at the bigger more competitive meets, along with setting records at state which I almost achieved last year in the 50 free, I was .07 away from it,” Vogt said. “This year at state I want to succeed in getting that record along with others.”

While still undecided on where to attend, Vogt plans to further her education and swim career after high school. 

“I plan to swim in college and most likely will major in health science with a business emphasis but have not decided where yet,” Vogt said.
