Olympic Hopefuls from The Lexington School

From Lexington to London

TLS students and alumni succeed on many levels.  This summer, The Lexington School will be rooting on two of its alumni as they seek their Olympic dreams.

Lee Kiefer, Class of 2008

Lee is the middle of the Kiefer clan, all of whom were raised to fence. Lee, Alex (Class of 2006) and Axel (Class of 2011) all went to TLS from preschool through 8th grade and then on to Paul Lawrence Dunbar's Math, Science, and Technology Program. Suffice it to say, all the Kiefer kids are incredible achievers, but Lee has really taken her fencing to the highest level, and she is a now a member of the U.S. Olympic Fencing team! Read the linked article below to get a good intro to her fencing career and Olympic aspirations, but check back in to this blog during the Olympics for your Lee Kiefer updates.  We are definitely following her!

Kelsey Floyd, Class of 2005

Kelsey has been swimming since she was able to swim! She attended TLS from preschool all the way through 8th grade and then matriculated to Henry Clay High School Liberal Arts Academy where she continued to achieve academically and athletically. For the past three years, she has been swimming competitively at The University of Tennesssee, where she has been a 7-time All American. Kelsey was invited to the Olympic trials where she made it to the finals in both the 100-meter and 200-meter butterfly but just fell short of getting in the top two swimmers who move on to London. Her achievement is incredible, and we know this won't be the last we see of Kelsey on the national scene in swimming. Congrats, Kelsey on reaching such heights! We'll keep watching you and bragging about your success!
