PREP BOYS' SWIMMING: Burlington-Edison preview


Coach: Dave Cleave

Top swimmers: Riley Pearson (So.), Josh Simpson (Sr.), Arten Hunter (So.), Kris Hunter (Sr.)

Outlook: The Tigers have a strong team that should battle in upper half of the conference. They are filled with good athletes up and down the roster and placed fifth in the Northwest District last year. Leading the way is Kris Hunter, who placed 10th in the 100 backstroke last year at state. Look for Burlington to continue to improve and possibly qualify a few more swimmers for state.
