COMPETITIVE TRANSFORMATION
Her father Mike is amazed by her newfound competitive spirit in the pool after failing to inspire her while coaching softball. "When I was coaching and we would have instructional time, she'd be more interested in what the clovers looked like. Up until three years ago, I never would have believed she would be as competitive as she is," he said. (semissourian.com, 21 Jun 2007)
