Making it to a state competition would be exciting enough for most high school athletes.
But for one Jenks athlete, itâ€™s just another step on the path to greater things. Jenks Swimmer Lori Halvorson set the "national" high school record last week in the 500-meter freestyle.
She and her coach John Turner talked about the excitement of breaking the record on "Six in the Morningâ€. John Turner, Jenks swim coach, "Everybody was waiting, both schools, all the union kids were cheering for her everybody was pulling for one thing. I felt bad for the other people in that race.â€
Lori says she has her future sights set on the Olympics, but for now she's focusing on the two years she has left at Jenks.
