Kristen Babb-Sprague

Maybe I was the only person who didn't know this, but Kristen Babb-Sprague has had quite the illustrious athletic career. And that DOES look like a "USA" jacket she is wearing in the pool with Tom Thorup and Reid Stevens in that yearbook picture from the "Senior Party at Turtle Rock". So forgive me if this is old news to everyone, but...

Kristen was the 1989 National Champion in synchronized swimming, and a gold medalist at the 1992 Olympics. She was a member of the Walnut Creek Aquanuts in the mid '90s. She is married to Ed Sprague, a former major league baseball player who is now the Head Coach of the baseball team at UOP in Stockton. As of 2001, according to this article they had 3 children. She even has her own Wikipedia article.
