Riverside senior Carly Rosendale was joined on the Riverside varsity team this year by her younger sister, freshman Madison Rosendale. In their first event of their first meet together on the high school level, the sisters combined with teammates, Erica King and Raena Valli to win the 200 medley relay against Highlands, swimming a time of 2:01.03. In the very next girls event, Carly Rosendale won the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:19.08. In Madison's first individual event, she swam a 2:34.04 to take second place in the 200 IM, the time was only bested by WPIAL champion Bailey Bonnett of Highlands. The Rosendale sisters once again combined on a winning relay later in the dual meet, this time it was the 200 freestyle relay. Madison led off the relay, staking Riverside to an early lead and her older sister swam the third leg. Valli and Kelly Krechowski were also on the relay.

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.

Background: Last season, Sheridan averaged 20 points per game for Riverside, then picked up where he left off this season, scoring in double figures again over the weekend. In between basketball seasons, though, he played football for the first time and averaged almost 35 yards per catch as a wide receiver and scored 15 touchdowns. He'll be expected to be the senior leader on the hardcourt and carry the scoring load for the Panthers again.
