"MARY KATE GOES TO STATE"
Disabled swimmer Mary Kate Callahan works out with a medicine ball as her teammates do jumping exercises at the first practice of the season at Fenwick High School in Oak Park on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012. Teammate Paige Kohut considers Callahan, a captain along with Kohut and two other seniors, an inspiration. "If you wake up in the morning for practice thinking, ‘Oh, I'm so tired,' you remember Mary Kate," Kohut said. "And Mary Kate has a better attitude than anyone."
