Town of LaSalle dedicates special day to Olympic swimmer Kylie Masse


The Town of LaSalle set aside Friday evening to celebrate world record holder Kylie Masse.

The Olympic medal-winning swimmer met with fans at the LaSalle outdoor pool following a parade along Front Road that started at 4 p.m.

“It’s incredible, honestly, to be here with all these kids,” said Masse as she signed autographs for a long line of fans. “That’s something I really treasured as a young athlete growing up, is looking up to older Olympians, so I want to be that person.”
