Regis Jesuit’s Missy Franklin will swim for Regis Jesuit this year, according to John Koslosky, Regis’ athletic director on Tuesday. The four-time gold medal winner in the 2012 London Olympic games will swim an abbreviated schedule after the holidays, according to Neil Devlin of the Denver Post.
Chances are, the girl who dominated the rest of the world this summer will make mincemeat of her fellow Colorado high schoolers. But Regis, according to Devlin, plans on shielding Franklin from the slew of coverage she’s sure to get. Franklin won’t participate in every event in every meet, but whatever she does take part in, she’ll set new records in – ones that probably won’t be broken anytime soon.
The 17-year-old queen of Colorado will have some more trophies to add to the war chest in just a few months.
