“Kaytlyn represents Italy High School very well as a student athlete. We are very proud of her accomplishments.” –Lee Joffre
“In the past four years Kaytlyn has proven how tough she is mentally and physically while competing in powerlifting. She has endured bruises, blisters, broken fingers, and scratches. Kaytlyn has always been willing to push herself to do her very best. If doing her best means lifting five more pounds or twenty more pounds she never thought twice about it. We couldn’t be any more prouder of Kaytlyn AnneMarie Bales!” –Jennifer Bales (Kaytlyn’s mom)
