(ABC 6 NEWS) -- She's done it again.
Another Albert Lea swimming record now belongs to freshman Lindsey Horejsi.
She broke the school and pool mark in the 100 butterfly against Mankato East last Thursday, and the most amazing thing? It's an event she doesn't normally swim.
"I didn't expect it at all," Horejsi said. "I got done with the first 50, and I felt good. I thought, 'Oh my gosh, I can actually break this!' And when I heard the place go nuts, I knew I must have got it. When I looked over the block, I was like, 'Oh my gosh!'"
"I think people have to realize how hard she really does work. She's made a big commitement. Her life is swimming," Albert Lea coach Jon Schmitz said.
Horejsi made a change from last year, adding weightlifting to her workout, and she says it's made a difference.
"I think weights help a lot, because you don't get as tired during the race, and you have that extra push to get to the wall," Horejsi said.
After swimming at the Olympic trials this summer, the Tiger freshman has some big goals for this high school season.
"I really want to get under a minute in the 100 breaststroke, and the national record is a 58.7 seconds, so I'd really like to get that," Horejsi said.
"We never bet against her," Schmitz said.
