Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.COM) -- Athletes in High School participate in sports for various reasons...some want to land a college scholarship, some enjoy their teammates, others like the coach and/or being part of a team.

The Denfeld Girls High SChool Swimming and Diving team is "officially" called The Hunters...but if you ask area teams they compete against 'Team Mindy."

Mindy Bolgrien is just a freshman, but it's already her third year on the team.

She competes at 100% effort and Down Syndrome doesn't slow this Hunter in the pool.
