Thursday, January 9, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

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.

Rebuilding is something Brad Rauch wasn't forced to do in his first two years as Northern Valley's baseball coach.

But as Rauch begins his third season, that's exactly what he's faced with as the Chargers (1-3) begin play in the highly competitive Lehigh Valley Legion League.

Northern Valley enjoyed a tremendously successful season in Rauch's first year, as the team went 15-3 in 2011 and captured the regular season title. That momentum carried into last summer, as the Chargers went 9-9 and again earned a spot in the playoffs.
