Roberts to ink with WKU

4-time team champion Cris Roberts will make it official with Western Kentucky University Tuesday at 2 p.m.

While at Tupelo, she notched four team titles, two runner-ups, and broke two state records.

Roberts recently defended her state championship in the 100-yard butterfly after setting a state record (which was set in 2006) of 56.26 seconds at the November 1st MHSAA Class II state meet. She also successfully maintained her 2013 state title in the backstroke this year with a 59.60 mark.

Western Kentucky swimming and diving head coach Bruce Marchionda, who carries over 30 years of coaching at both the collegiate and prep levels, was just named an assistant coach for the USA Swimming staff.
