Zeynep Kivanc '17 breaks LFA's butterfly record for girls swimming
The girls varsity swim team beat Martin Luther High School, ending last night's match 90-76. Coach Natalie Schawel says that the meet was a first for several girls and that "they all pushed themselves to set some strong initial time."
Notably, junior Zeynep Kivanc '17 broke the 100 meter butterfly record with an amazing 1:00.75, breaking the previous record of 1:03.3 from 1989. Zeynep, who is also a member of the Turkish Junior World Team, is now the school record holder for every girls swimming event except diving. Yesterday was the first time Zeynep swam the butterfly event, which Coach Schawel states, is "astonishing to say the least."
Congratulations to our Caxy girls!

Students Attend Global Youth Leadership Institute Summer Programs
Students in the Global Youth Leadership Institute three-year program for high school students spend several days each summer after their 9th grade year attending workshops on religious pluralism, multicultural identity, and environmental sustainability. The first year, students travel to Connecticut to set sail on the Atlantic Ocean for 3 days. Sam Wold, History Instructor, chaperoned six LFA girls on their first GYLI adventure.

The second year, rising juniors fly to New Mexico and stay at the Lama Foundation, a nondenominational spiritual retreat center. Students talk about understanding different religions and reflect on their relationships with others during this 7-day stay. Third-year participants use eleven days to explore Costa Rica and learn about sustainable agriculture. Mike Rogan, Science Instructor, and five rising seniors are currently abroad in Costa Rica.
