In the Aug. 5 edition of Sports Illustrated, an East Oldham Middle School student was featured in the "Faces in the Crowd" section.

Julia Roy, an eighth grader at EOMS who competes for the Lakeside Swim Team, won the 11- and 12-year-old girls' 100-meter butterfly at the state long-course championships in July, breaking the state record set by Olympian Mary T. Meagher in 1977. Roy's new record is 1:03.92.

Roy earned six other medals at the meet. In January, the 12-year-old beat high schoolers to win the 100 fly at the Oldham County championships.
