I saw the article in the Tri-City Herald today about Benton City's Chelsea McClammer and can't help be impressed!

Chelsea McClammer of Benton City has been juggling international competitions with local ones her entire career. The Richland High School graduate will be competing later this month at the Paralympic Trials in Indianapolis. As a freshman at Kiona-Benton High School, McClammer finished eighth in the women's 800-meter final at the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008.

McClammer graduated from Richland High on Friday, and today will fly to Champaign, Ill., where she will attend the University of Illinois on an almost full-ride scholarship to participate in track and basketball for the Fighting Illini.
