Ciesla swept the 50- and 100-meter freestyles in 24.22 and 55.00 respectively.

The boys swept all the individual events with six different swimmers winning events. Austin Fields won the 1-meter diving.

On Tuesday, Pine Crest girls defeated South Florida Heat, 126-58, and Chaminade-Madonna 160-9. The boys defeated South Florida Heat, 106-75 and Chaminade-Madonna 142-31.

American Heritage Boys Win Season-Opener; SOFLO’s Pinon Takes Two Firsts, Second, Third


By Sharon Robb

September 16, 2014—Defending boys 2A state champion American Heritage Plantation began its quest for another state title Tuesday with impressive wins over two of South Florida’s top programs.

The Patriots defeated Boca Raton, 103-77, and host St. Andrew’s, 108-68, in their season-opener at the Duff Tyler Aquatic Complex in Boca Raton. Boca Raton defeated St. Andrew’s, 107-76.

The season-opener gave American Heritage coach Nobutaka Tan an opportunity to gauge his team’s strength and weaknesses against two of the stronger boys’ teams so early in the season.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Julien Pinon, fresh off a summer of training and competing overseas for France, led off the winning 200-yard freestyle relay and anchored the winning 400-yard freestyle relay.

Pinon was also second in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:47.40 and third in the 100-yard freestyle in 50.03.

SOFLO teammates Cristian Rossi was seventh in 25.47 and CJ Kopecki was tenth in 24.09 in the 50-yard freestyle.

American Heritage had four different swimmers win individual events and also won the 200- and 400-yard freestyler relays.

The boys’ competition was evenly balanced, but it was the Patriots’ depth that clinched the wins.

Boca Raton, third place finishers at last year’s state meet, had three individual winners and St. Andrew’s had two individual winners and won the 200-yard medley relay.

American Heritage heads the field for Saturday’s Sun Invitational at Nova Southeastern.
