Kalispell Flathead’s Lily Milner is going to swim division one at University Of Utah, but Milner’s journey to get here started long ago.
“Well I started swimming when I was about eight years old and I started competitively swimming when I was about 10. I fell in love with it because it’s an individual sport so everything kind of relies on you,” said Milner.
Milner fell in love with swimming when she was eight. Physically, it changed her body, making her stronger and turning her into one of the best swimmers in the Flathead Valley. But it was the mental strength she found that changed her life.
“Swimming is a pretty mentally tough sport because it’s pretty boring, you’re just swimming back and forth staring at a black line or staring up a ceiling, so it’s really taught me how to stay dedicated and stay focused and work really hard, even when you know your mind does not want you to,” Milner said.Read Montana Sports
