Valor Christian was no match for Evergreen’s star-studded girls swimming lineup in the Dec.19 home dual meet that ended the pre-holiday break portion of the season. And it didn’t help the Lady Eagles that Josie Pearson made her 2014-15 debut.
Pearson, who finished fifth in the 100-yard butterfly and sixth in the 100 backstroke in last season’s 4A state meet, won both of her specialties with state-qualifying marks to pace the Lady Cougars to a 145-38 victory.
