Niko Milosavljevic, Durant

WHY WE CHOSE HIM: Only a freshman, Milosavljevic won the Western Conference (Hillsborough County Public Schools) 500 freestyle with a time of 4:55.24, two seconds faster than last year's champion.

COLLEGE PLANS: Though college is four years away, Milosavljevic would welcome the opportunity to swim in college. He is also interested in criminal justice.

Allyson Nied, Newsome

WHY WE CHOSE HER: Nied, a junior, defended her Western Conference championship last week by winning the girls diving championship with 455 points. A former gymnast, Nied is hoping to three-peat as a senior.

COLLEGE PLANS: Nied has received some interest to dive at the next level.
