AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Lindsay Wallace didn't have her sights on first or even second place during the Georgia High School State Swim meet. The Davidson Fine Arts junior just wanted to make it onto the podium.

"There was a lot of competition especially from big schools in Atlanta since they have a lot of swimmers," Lindsay said. "The two girls who beat me were seniors."

Wallace placed third in the 100-yard freestyle and took home the bronze, making her the first Davidson Fine Arts student in history to stand on the podium.

But now she's about to start gearing up for something even bigger: college.

"I'm keeping my options open, so hopefully I'll find the right place for me," Lindsay said.

She wants to keep swimming and at a Division I school. She said she doesn't have a particular in mind, but she knows what she has to do to get there.

"I have to keep my grades up and keep working hard all around," she said.

But she admits it isn't easy. Wallace has eight swim practices per week, including one on Saturday morning.

"Especially going here with rigorous academics and challenging classes, it teaches me a lot of discipline," she said.

Wallace also swam the 100 backstroke and placed sixth in the Georgia High School State Swim meet.
