CF Senior Swimmers: Athletes of the Week

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL)-- The number 1 ranked Tigers swimming team hasn't lost a meet all year. They have won a conference and district title, but they know that to achieve their ultimate goal they have to continue to improve.

Head Coach Dick Marcussen says, "We fell they still have something left in the tank and their going to perform at an even higher level once we get them in their real racing suits. We're going to see some real good performances out of them and that's what is going to put us over the top if were going to win a state title."

With the combination of Seniors Austin Abbas, Josh Sund, Taylor Burks, and Jon Baker, they are all poised to win or medal in nearly every swimming event at the state meet this Saturday in Marshalltown, it is all about feeding off one another. "We always give each other crap when we do bad, then we always congratulate each other it's good competition between us all," says  Burks.

Always pushing each other to be the best they can be as Austin Abbas says, "Were constantly pushing each other motivated to get faster.''
