NORWALK — In praising the trajectory of one of her life-long teammate’s swimming career, Stephanie Czulewicz said of her sister Lauren, “She is so much better than everyone else that they move her up. She wanted to follow in my footsteps basically.”
Stephanie’s words were followed with a smile and chuckle, which is almost always the case. But don’t let the delivery mask the sincerity.
For one, Lauren admits to looking up to her sister, older by just one year. More importantly, Stephanie has been blazing a trail of distinctions and Lauren is quite literally following in her footsteps, or rather ripples.
