Woodrow Wilson is again the favorite in both boys and girls divisions of the Interhigh League.
Wilson's girls include Ericka Oliver and Robyn Glennon in the 200 IM; Stephanie Kraft (200 freestyle), Christie Flaherty (sprints), Cara Larson (100 backstroke), Claudina Gomez (distances) and Dina Levy (relays).
The biggest challenge will come from Cardozo, led by Pamela and Bernice Williams, Anna Guido and Carnella Richardson. H.D. Woodson will be led by sophomore freestyler Felecia Harrison.
In the boys division, Wilson has 200 IM and 100 backstroke champion Nate Beers and Uwezo Flewellen, who finished third in the 100 butterfly and fifth in the 200 IM last year.
Ballou will feature the swimming of two-time 100 breaststroke champion Kenneth Moore. Ballou also will get a lot of help from Jose Harris, Jon Quinton and Arthur Parks.
Eastern will be led by Clarence Dunn, who had a third-place Interhigh finish in the 50 freestyle and a second-place finish in the 100 butterfly.
H.D. Woodson expects improvement from Anthony Leonard, a sprinter who swims the 100 and 200, and junior Edward Allain, who specializes in the freestyle and breaststroke.
Dunbar has I.J. Brooks (200 freestyle), Bobby Walker (50 freestyle), Stacy Sims (200 medley relay) and Antoine Brooks (one-meter diving) for an improvement on their 17 total points in last year's championship.
Cardozo hopes to move into contention based upon improvement from Gregory Johnson, Samuel Johnson, Owen Anderson and Reginald Cord.
