Kilbourne duo aiming for fourth trip to state

Nanami Campbell found a fast friend in Evie DeCarlo when she moved to the area in the sixth grade. The two colored instead of going outside for recession, forging a bond that has lasted through high school.

That friendship blossomed between the two on the Worthington Kilbourne girls swimming and diving team as mainstays of the three-time state qualifying 200 freestyle relay and two-time state qualifying 200 medley relay.

“Evie was my first friend when I moved here from Michigan,” Campbell said. “It was sixth grade and we’d color together during (recess) because we didn’t want to go outside. She went to Phoenix and I went to McCord (for middle school), so I didn’t see her for two years. Then when we met again for swimming, it was just an immediate connection. Ever since then, we’ve been super close.”
