Moorestown, NJ (September 18, 2014) – In August, Moorestown resident William Burris, III, became a United States Masters Swimming National Champion by winning the 50-meter freestyle event at the Marriott USMS Summer National Championship in College Park, Maryland. More than 1,000 swimmers competed in events during the five-day master’s swim meet that was held at the University of Maryland. Burris also placed fourth in the 50-meter backstroke.
This was the icing on the cake for Burris this summer. In addition to the national championship, just days before the event he and his wife Katherine welcomed their first child; a son named Charlie. Also, in early 2014 Burris was promoted to Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of Burris Construction Company, a Moorestown-based design/build firm founded by his grandfather, William G. Burris.
Burris has spent much of his life in the water. Growing up, he swam for the Woodstream Barracudas in Marlton, NJ. He trained in the off-season at Jersey Wahoos, with the Hurricanes and at GCIT. In high school he represented Moorestown Friends School at state meets. Burris also swam varsity during his four years at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL, twice winning Most Valuable Player honors. Burris is currently training with the master’s team at Jersey Wahoos and at Velocity Sports in Cherry Hill.
