Teen with Autism Swims His Way to Success

FOND DU LAC, Wis. -- When Hunter Develice wanted to join the Fond du Lac High School swim team, his father was told that perhaps the family should consider Special Olympics instead.
"A school official told me maybe it wasn't the right spot for Hunter, but he proved them wrong," Chris Develice said of his autistic son.
A powerhouse swimmer, the 17-year old Fondy High junior recently swam the 400-meter freestyle race in "letter" time in a dual meet at Berlin. He not only swam fast enough to earn a varsity letter, he won the race.
