Sophomore at Staunton River Combats Her Cystic Fibrosis Through Her Love of Sports

Despite her condition, Lynsey Ball manages to always stay positive — no matter the situation. Her infectious energy radiates throughout her school; even just passing her in the hallway can brighten someone's day. Many might assume she could suffer from a lack of energy, but quite the opposite is true. Some would even call her hyper! Cystic fibrosis hasn't been able to dampen Ball's spirit in any way. This might be due to the fact that it's not her only competition — she's also a three-sport athlete integral in bringing Staunton River to victory.
