SOFLO Swimmers Enjoy Success Across The Board


By Sharon Robb

November 24, 2014—South Florida Aquatic Club is still celebrating its outstanding weekend at the 24th annual Speedo Winter Championships at Plantation Aquatic Complex.

Not only did the defending champions win the combined and women’s team titles for the second year in a row, but SOFLO had 100 percent performance in lifetime-best times in every age group.

Every SOFLO swimmer swam at least one best time and three turned in their first-ever lifetime-bests in their events at the highly-competitive meet that featured more than 1,300 swimmers and 75 teams.

“I think that speaks volumes,” SOFLO coach Chris Anderson said.

SOFLO was led by six high point winners: Joseph Lee, 11, and Michael Arias, 11, tied with 69 points; Vanessa Mesa, 12, with 66 points; Rafael Rodriguez, 12, with 77 points; Kathleen Golding, 14, with 71 points; and Melissa Marinheiro, 17, with 62 points.

It was the most high point winners SOFLO has had in a major meet in team history.

Marinheiro, Jessica Rodriguez, Kathleen Golding and Timothy Wynter did not shave for the meet since they are competing in the USA Swimming Speedo Winter Junior National Championships , Dec. 11-13 in Federal Way, Wash.

South Florida Aquatic Club Wins Combined, Women’s Team Titles At Speedo Winter Championships


By Sharon Robb

November 23, 2013—Defending champion South Florida Aquatic Club swept the combined and women’s team titles for the second year in a row at the 24th annual Speedo Winter Championships Sunday at Plantation Aquatic Complex.

SOFLO was the only team to score more than 2,000 points among a record field of 1,382 swimmers and 75 teams with 2,097 points. Azura Florida Aquatics was second with 1,412 and Pine Crest Swim Team was third with 1,240. Only three teams cracked the 1,000 point mark.

SOFLO was the only women’s team to score more than 1,000 points with 1,055 points. Pine Crest Swim Team was runner-up with 736 and North Palm Beach was third with 532 points.

Azura Florida Aquatics won the men’s team title with 1,066 points, a 24-point margin over SOFLO, second with 1,042 points.

“It’s always tougher to win it the second time around, more people are after us because we have established ourselves as one of the stronger clubs in the area,” SOFLO coach Chris Anderson said. “I am extremely excited for our team to win an entire meet like this when there are so many athletes and teams competing.

“We had so many athletes do well that it was our total group of swimmers who stood out,” Anderson said. “We had more firsts and top three places than we have ever had in history. It’s also a true testament how our coaches identify the talent and improve the talent so they are champions.”

SOFLO’s Rafael Rodriguez, 12, broke his fourth Florida Gold Coast record. He broke in the 200-yard individual medley twice on the final day of competition. He first broke the record in a lifetime-best 2:03.04, shaving 1.70 off his previous best of 2:04.74 and nearly 9 seconds ahead of runner-up and teammate Leonardo Mateus.

Rodriguez came back at night to break his own record in 2:02.86, a 0.18 drop. “That was a solid swim, he had a great meet,” Anderson said.

Rodriguez finished with 11 individual and relay victories including the 1,650-yard freestyle in 16:32.68 on the final day.

SOFLO broke seven Florida Gold Coast LSC and Open records over three days of the four-day meet. Three-time Jamaican Olympian Alia Atkinson broke two records and Isabella Di Salvo, Jacqueline Lugo, Kyana Castro and Vanessa Mesa broke the 11-12 200-yard freestyle relay.

SOFLO was led by six high point winners: Joseph Lee, 11, and Michael Arias, 11, tied with 69 points; Vanessa Mesa, 12, with 66 points; Rafael Rodriguez, 12, with 77 points; Kathleen Golding, 14, with 71 points; Melissa Marinheiro, 17, with 62 points.

It was the most high point winners SOFLO has had in a major meet in the team’s history.

SOFLO’s individual girl champions on the final day were Vanessa Mesa in the 100-yard freestyle and 200-yard individual medley; Kathleen Golding in the 100-yard freestyle; and Kelley Heron in the 200-yard individual medley.

SOFLO boys dominated the 1,650-yard freestyle event sweeping the top three places in 11-and-under with Joseph Lee, Nicolas Rossi and John Paul Handal; Rodriguez and Mateus finishing one-two in the 12-year-old category; and Kevin Porto winning the 14 title.

Rodriguez also won the 50-yard butterfly and 200-yard individual medley; Michael Arias won the 100-yard freestyle and Joseph Lee won the 200-yard individual medley.

“As a group we have been talking about the maturity and athleticism of our athletes and it showed in this meet,” Anderson said.

“We have to take our hats off for the men’s team. They did great overall. We were extremely solid in the mile. They swam all best times and every age group was represented which is huge.

“This is just a great way to end the season as a group for sure. I don’t know when our entire team, from the 8-year-olds to the open will come together again so I am extremely excited for them. Our staff did a wonderful job. They are confident in executing our training and it’s really starting to pay off.”

SOFLO men’s team competed without Timothy Wynter on Sunday. The Jamaican swimmer was treated for dehydration. SOFLO was also without one of its top swimmers, Julien Pinon, competing overseas in the French nationals.

SOFLO Breaks Five Florida Gold Coast Records On Day Three Of Speedo Winter Championships


By Sharon Robb

November 22, 2014—South Florida Aquatic Club broke five Florida Gold Coast records to highlight action at the 24th annual Speedo Winter Championships Saturday at rainy, windswept Plantation Aquatic Complex.

Rafael Rodriguez, 12, broke two FGC records and one FGC Open record in the 100-yard individual medley and 100-yard butterfly and Jamaican Olympian Alia Atkinson 25, shredded her own FGC and Open records in the 100-yard individual medley.

Rodriguez first broke the 11-12 100-yard individual medley record during morning prelims in a lifetime-best 57.28, dropping 0.58. The FGC record was 57.36 held by Adrian Aguilar and FGC open record is 56.36 held by Manuel Lopez.

Rodriguez came back in finals to break his own FGC record again in 57.15.

Rodriguez also won the 100-yard butterfly in 55.67, both a FGC and Open records 55.67 breaking SOFLO teammate Ervin Marin’s previous record. Marin was the first to congratulate Rodriguez after he got out of the pool.

“I am happy the most with the butterfly,” Rodriguez said. “It was something I really wanted to get because every time I would get so close to record but never got it. I’m pretty happy, it felt good.

“Coming into the meet I wanted to get the records I never got in some of my events. This is definitely my best Winter Champs.”

Atkinson, in her final tune-up before the Dec. 3-7 Short Course World Championships in Doha, broke her own record in the 100-yard individual medley in a lifetime-best 54.41.

The other SOFLO records of the night was three-time Olympian Alia Atkinson, 25, who won the 100-yard individual medley in FGC LSC and Open records in 54.41 in a non-tech suit.

On Sunday, Atkinson will swim only the 50-yard breaststroke and scratch from finals. She will work on her starts, warm down and then do a workout.

SOFLO now has six FGC records over three days. On Friday, the girls’ 11-12 200-yard freestyle relay team of Isabella Di Salvo, Jacqueline Lugo, Kyana Castro, and Vanessa Mesa broke the FGC record in 1:44.41

SOFLO, looking to repeat as champions, is sitting pretty going into the fourth and final day of competition. SOFLO leads the combined team totals with 1,619 points. Azura Florida Aquatics is second with 1,041 and Pine Crest is third with 952.

SOFLO leads the women’s team totals with 821 followed by Pine Crest with 566 and North Palm Beach with 407.

The battle for the boys team title will come down to SOFLO and Azura. SOFLO has a slim lead with 798 points. Azura trails by only 12 points.

“Tonight was a brilliant night,” SOFLO coach Chris Anderson said. “We really showed our depth. It’s nice to have the younger athletes here. A lot more younger kids were here tonight and it was a real nice SOFLO team atmosphere.

“I told our coaches I don’t know when our entire team will get together like this again. I told them to enjoy Sunday’s fast swimming.”

Other SOFLO champions:

Vanessa Mesa, 12, 200-yard freestyle, 1:59.84, best time.

Kathleen Golding, 14, 200-yard freestyle, 1:51.58.

Melissa Marinheiro, 17, swam a best time 1:53.12 in the 200-yard freestyle to finish second.

The meet concludes on Sunday with prelims and finals.

A record 1,382 swimmers and 75 teams are competing during the four-day meet, the state’s largest age group meet and one of the nation’s largest LSC meets.

SOFLO Breaks Florida Gold Coast Record On Day Two Of Speedo Winter Championships


By Sharon Robb

November 21, 2014—Defending champion South Florida Aquatic Club broke its first Florida Gold Coast record of the 24th annual Speedo Winter Championships Friday at Plantation Aquatic Complex.

The girls’ 11-12 200-yard freestyle relay team of Isabella Di Salvo, Jacqueline Lugo, Kyana Castro, and Vanessa Mesa broke the record in 1:44.41

“I am extremely excited to see a bunch of younger girls step it up as far as sprint freestyle,” SOFLO coach Chris Anderson said. “It’s never been one of our strong suits but having four girls go under 25 and 26 splits speaks volumes for what they are doing.”

SOFLO remains in the lead after two days of competition. SOFLO leads the combined team standings with 983 points, ahead of Azura Florida Aquatics and Pine Crest Swim Team, tied for second with 561 points.

SOFLO girls leads the girls standings with 524 points ahead of Pine Crest with 329 and the boys lead Azura, 459-444.

“We performed as a team tonight with a positive attitude, we are in very good shape,” Anderson said. “We are starting to get higher quality swims. The 200 backstroke was amazing with Timothy Wynter, Melissa Marinheiro, Kelley Heron and Kayla Cunningham all winning made a huge statement. We had our big four guys (Esteban Diaz-Velasco, Juan Lucas, Ryan Capote and Alredo Mesa) in the finals which is pretty solid.”

Wynter, an up-and-coming Jamaican swimmer, topped a good field to win the open 200-yard backstroke in 1:48.38 ahead of Diogo Fassina and Mateo Gonzalez.

Marinheiro won the 200-yard backstroke in a lifetime-best 2:05.00 in an exciting race just out-touching St. Andrew’s Rachael Bradford-Feldman (2:05.84). Heron won the 15-16 200 backstroke in 2:07.00 and Kayla Cunningham, 11, won the 200-yard backstroke in a best time 2:19.54 to win her age group.

“Our younger age groupers today were brilliant,” Anderson said. “They did a really nice job, stepping it up and executing best times overall. I looke at our senior program and the boys are really starting to emerge as one of the stronger men’s programs. It’s starting to really come together.”

Other notable swims:

Leonardo Mateus won three gold medals in the 500-yard freestyle, 400-yard individual medley and 200-yard freestyle relay and one silver in the 200 backstroke. His younger brother Alejandro Mateus, was the only nine-year-old in the 200-yard individual medley final to drop more than six seconds. He also swam a lifetime-best in the 500-yard freestyle.

Molly Golding won the 200-yard breaststroke in a best time 2:36.36.

Michael Arias won the 500-yard freestyle in 5:25.98 followed by teammate Joseph Lee in 5:27.73. Arias also won the 50-yard freestyle in a best time 26.00.

SOFLO Shines On Day One Of Speedo Winter Championships


By Sharon Robb

November 20, 2014—South Florida Aquatic Club took an early lead after Day One of the 24th annual Florida Gold Coast Speedo Winter Swimming Championships Thursday at the Plantation Aquatic Complex.

The defending champion leads the combined team standings with 312 points and girls team totals with 174 points.

In a shocker, SOFLO knocked off Pine Crest and Miami Swimming to win the 800-yard freestyle in 7:41.53 with Kelley Heron, Melissa Marinheiro, Jessica Rodriguez and Kylie Herman. It was the team’s most impressive swim of the night.

Pine Crest’s relay featured Lydia Musleh, Lindsey Swartz, Sabrina Gornisiewicz and Caroline Nava and Miami Swimming had Kyla Valls, Laine Morgan, Hannah Cordes and Carlota Verita.

“They really did step it up,” said SOFLO coach Chris Anderson. “They are pretty solid when they come together. Our team had a very solid first day of the meet and established a little bit of confidence that will go a long way.”

SOFLO had two individual girls winners in the 400-yard individual medley. Jessica Rodiguez won the 15-16 in a best time 4:34.46 and Kathleen Golding in 4:23.47. Marinheiro was also second in the 1,000-yard freestyle in 10:21.24.

SOFLO boys, third among the boys field with 147 points behind Azura and Metro Aquatics, also had some outstanding swims.

“Our boys took a real step forward,” Anderson said.

The 800-yard freestyle relay of Timothy Wynter, Ryan Capote, CJ Kopecki and Jordan Colon was second in 6:55.40, just 1.2 seconds off the national cut.

“No one expected us to finish in the top five never mind second place,” said an excited Anderson. “Ervin had a heck of a swim in the 400 IM. It was a good solid session for us. We really did perform.”

Ervin Marin won the 15-16 400-yard individual medley in 4:07.57 and Leonardo Mateus won the 11-12 400 IM in best time 4:34.21.

The meet continues on Friday with prelims and finals.

A record 1,382 swimmers and 75 teams are competing during the four-day meet, the state’s largest age group meet and one of the nation’s largest LSC meets.

Florida Swim Network will broadcast the finals live on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
