What ever happened the desire to compete against the best? Olympic sweetheart and 5-time medalist, Missy Franklin’s decision to forgo millions of winnings and endorsement dollars to keep her amateur status and try to continue to be a “normal” high school kid is rubbing some the wrong way. The Cherry Creek High School Swim Team is taking this very hard, since their chance at 27th state title is being wrongly taken from them by Missy Franklin swimming for rival Regis Jesuit High School. The swimmers of Cherry Creek are speaking out about it. The parents of Cherry Creek are speaking out about it. Why must the poor kids be forced to race the dominant Missy Franklin? Hasn’t she done enough? I would be beyond embarrassed to be a part of Cherry Creek High School.
