Burbank Sweeps Glendale in Swim Meet

By On March 9, 2016


The Burbank High boys’ swimming team didn’t have much to spare in the end as they defeated visiting Glendale 85-84 in a Pacific League dual meet Wednesday.

The Bulldogs fared much better on the girls’ varsity side, winning 113-57.

“We’re picking up where we left off last year,” third-year Burbank coach Gilbert Raposa said. “I’m impressed with my new swimmers. It’s nice to continue to see the kids I’ve had for three years improve.”

Burbank was able to overcome Glendale’s Trenton Julian, who is one of the top swimmers in the nation and the son of former Olympic gold medalist Kristine Quance.

Leading the Bulldogs’ girls team was seniors Ashley Hinterlong and Melissa Udall and freshman Michelle Morlock. Hinterlong won the 100-yard freestyle (1:01.72), the 100 breaststroke (1:16.41) and was part of the winning 200 medley relay (2:10.22) and 200 freestyle relay (1:57.86).

“I dropped a second in my 100 free,” said Hinterlong, who plans to swim at Pitzer College next year. “I’m faster than I expected to be right now, so I’m happy with that.”

Udall won the 100 butterfly (1:05.95), 200 individual medley (2:33.89) and was part of the medley and 400 free relay team (4:25.12).

Morlock took the 100 backstroke (1:16.09) , the 50 freestyle (27.91) and was part of the winning 200 free and medley relays.

Also winning for Burbank in individual events was Lindsay Jensen in the 200 free (2:19.56).

For the Burbank boys’ team, Aki Arlington won the 50 free (23.37) and was part of the winning 200 free relay team (1:36.77).

Justin Miller won the 100 free (52.35) and was part of the 200 free relay.

Roman Rostomyan took the 500 free (5:18.51) and was part of the 200 free relay.

Brent Min won the 100 breaststroke (1:12.48).

    What about the JV team results??? Why not publish those?? It seems the other sporting events for Freshman and JV teams get published, but about for the swim teams???

      Editor’s Note – We are more than happy to report results on all levels. It is up to the Coach of that sport to send the results to us the same way the Varsity Coach sends in his/her results. We do not have enough man power to get to all the games so we rely on coaches to supply information. Thanks for being a reader.

    My daughter is Ashley Hinterlong, and thanks for mentioning her! She had a great meet on Wednesday but I wanted to correct her 100 Breaststroke time. It is not 1:38.41, it was 1:16.41.
    Can you please correct that? That’s a huge difference! Thank you!
