MICHIGAN CITY — Swimming flows deep in the Heitmann family.

"The pool's our life pretty much," Luke Heitmann said. "Swimming takes up so much time. We're always here. Our dad's always here. His whole family (swam). A lot of our friends outside swimming don't understand, so it's nice to talk to someone who knows those things."
