Name: Erica King
High School: Riverside
Background: In a year of breakout freshmen distance freestylers last season, Riverside's Erica King was one of the best. She was the highest placing freshman at WPIALs last year in the 200 freestyle, taking fourth place. In a 500 freestyle race that featured four freshmen in the top ten, King placed seventh. King also anchored two Riverside relays that were PIAA bound, the 200 and 400 freestyle. In a dual meet against Highlands, King was pushed by another of last year's freshmen standouts, Bailey Bonnett. The defending WPIAL champion in the 500 freestyle went head-to-head against King in a number of events at the dual meet.
