Representing Tennessee at the 2019 National Senior Games last month in Albuquerque, New Mexico, local swimmers Jill Massie-Braun and Stacy Kirkpatrick came home with gold and silver medals, and a great sense of accomplishment. 

Kirkpatrick, a natural-born breaststroker, swam her way to first place in the 50-yard and 100-yard breaststroke. Braun competed in four events, three of which were 50-yard sprints. “In these races, there is no room for error,” said Braun, who placed second in the sprints.
