    To Ms. Brandon and all the others, shut up and swim. If you don’t like getting smoked by Missy, work your’s off to beat her’s.

    Hey Garrett,

    I’m sure there are Dads / men complaining in addition to Moms; just had to point that out :).

    Otherwise, go Missy go! Props for wanting to rep your school and be a team player.

    Glad that you guys are telling it like it is! There’s absolutely no problem with Missy swimming in high school. If I were in Colorado, I’d be thrilled to swim against her. I understand that she’s on a totally different level, but people have really criticized her lately for no good reason. She is a great role model for all young swimmers, even athletes for that matter, and I hope to see her success continue!

    You go, girl!!!!!
