Although she’s been swimming since she was in middle school, Kelsi says this year has taken on a new meaning since her sister’s death.
“This year has been a year about Libby. I’ve been doing everything I can to make Libby proud… Living the life she deserved to live.”
The two shared an unbreakable bond.
But it wasn’t just swimming – Kelsi says her little sister was also her best friend.
“We did everything together. She was always there. She was the best part of my life.”
After Libby was killed, Kelsi made a tough decision about her senior year on the swim team.
Instead of competing for herself, she decided to swim in the events that Libby would have competed in, including the 200 and 500 Free Relays, something Kelsi says her body isn’t used to.
“It’s really tough because I’m a sprinter, I don’t do distance. So it’s like trying to start over completely.”
