Broward, Miami-Dade Schools Re-Open Monday; High School Swim Meets Likely to Resume This Week


By Sharon Robb

September 17, 2017—Still in the midst of recovery and repairs after Hurricane Irma, Broward County and Miami-Dade public schools are scheduled to re-open on Monday with a full day of classes.

According to a Saturday announcement on Broward Schools’ social media, “the District looks forward to welcoming all students and employees back to school on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017.”

District officials also added that before and after-school programs will also resume on Monday. Buses may face delays with some roadways to schools still waiting to be cleared.

Miami-Dade County public schools will also re-open on Monday according to school superintendent Alberto Carvalho, who made the announcement on Sunday afternoon.

Not all Miami-Dade schools will have air conditioning in all parts of their schools. The buildings have been inspected and deemed safe. However, there may be some power interruptions during the day.

“There may be delays, inconvenience and a bit of discomfort,” Carvalho said on Twitter. “We ask for your patience as we transition back to school.”

Public schools in both counties also announced all students will receive not only the free breakfast to which they are entitled but a free lunch for the foreseeable future.

Several private and charter schools are also planning to re-open on Monday.

No athletic events have been held in nearly two weeks in either county.

The Florida High School Activities Association granted its schools statewide permission to practice on Sunday if it was possible in an effort to catch up.

The Broward County Athletic Association’s Rocky Gillis and other officials plan to inspect football fields at each of its member schools on Monday. If they are in good condition, the schedule for Week 5 would go on as planned.

The BCAA postponed all golf, cross country and swimming competitions for Monday and Tuesday and will make a decision by Monday night when to resume. Girls’ volleyball is expected to resume on Tuesday depending on gymnasium conditions at each school.

Many Florida Gold Coast club team swimmers stayed in shape with dry land training off site in homes and garages including South Florida Aquatic Club with Bridge Athletics, which designed an eight-day training schedule for athletes to maintain strength and flexibility while out of the pool. Age group and senior coaches stayed in contact with their swimmers and dry land workouts.

As of last Wednesday, SOFLO’s home Academic Village Pool was up and running thanks to the tireless efforts of the City of Pembroke Pines and SOFLO coaches and support team. Pool chemicals are balanced and facility is safe. High school and club swimmers resumed training on Thursday.

SOFLO Shines At Pompano Beach Piranhas Open Water Extreme Race


By Sharon Robb

September 4, 2017—-South Florida Aquatic Club was well-represented at the Sept. 2 Pompano Beach Piranhas Open Water Extreme Race that featured 5K, one mile, 500-meter and 100-meter swims off Pompano Beach.

SOFLO’s Mallory Schleicher continued her winning ways by placing first in the women’s 5-mile 14-and-under category and second overall with a time of 1:21:47.483.

The race was swum in one direction and the entire 5K was against the current. That is part of the challenge of open water racing and what makes it interesting, according to SOFLO coach George Mersinger.

In the 1-mile race, SOFLO swimmers Lucas Porven and his sister Giada both made their open water debut and had amazing results.

Lucas Porven placed fourth among 11-year- olds and 15th in the 14-and-under age group with a time of 24:06.023.

Giada Porven was the youngest competitor in the mile swim at 9 years old and placed first among 10-and-under girls and 14th in the 14- and-under category with a time of 26:34.533.

SOFLO coach George Mersinger also swam the mile and finished in 32:02.477 that placed him fifth in the 60-69 age group and 93rd overall for males.
