Quote from Coach Justin:  Koryne is an awesome swimmer! Her passion for the sport is what makes her such a great athlete. In practice she is calm and collected, and listens to directions so she completes the workout properly. Then when she goes to meets, she turns on her “beast mode,” and her fierce competitiveness comes out!

Quote from Her Parents: Koryne constantly pushes herself to do better, besides attending regular practices and meets, she takes it upon herself to practice at home almost daily. Her determination and love for the sport of swimming at such a young age is exceptional.
