During Madison Burns' career at Northwestern High School, the school didn't have a swimming team. Therefore, Burns swam individually, while devoting her junior year to representing the Tigers in various meets throughout the season.
When she was a senior, Burns didn't swim in the high school ranks, but instead she focused her final season while swimming on her club team, Parkland Area Aquatic Club.
That hasn't derailed Burns, a 2012 graduate of Northwestern High School, from putting together a fine career thus far at the University of North Carolina.
