Jacksonville Bolles Wins 57th Woodson Invitational; Podkoscielny, Zum Tobel Named Top Swimmers


By Sharon Robb
FORT LAUDERDALE, September 25, 2021–Jacksonville Bolles won the combined, girls and boys team titles on a stormy Saturday at the 57th annual Woodson Invitational.

The 15-team field featured a Who’s Who in high school swimming with many of the teams expected to finish among the the top five at the various state meets in Stuart in November.

Bolles won the combined team title with 685 points, girls title with 279 and boys title with 406. Pine Crest was second in the combined and girls and third in the boys competition. St. Andrew’s was third in combined, second in boys and third in the girls.

Pine Crest All-American Julia Podkoscielny was awarded the Ann Marshall Award as the meet’s outstanding female swimmmer. Marshall, a Pine Crest alum, was a 1972 Olympian at age 15.

Podkoscielny, showing her versatility, won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:48.02 and 500-yard freestyle in 4:49.41. She also anchored the 200-yard freestyle relay that won in 1:35.66 with teammates Hanna Elks Smith, Isabella Chambers and Riley Botting.

The only other Pine Crest winner was diver Ava Anderson with 437.45 points.

St. Andrew’s had three winners. Nicole Aguilar was a double winner in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:03.59 and 100-yard butterfly in 55.52. Aspen Gersper won the 100-yard backstroke in 57.55.

North Carolina State commit Maximilian Zum Tobel of Boca Raton High School, who trains with St. Andrew’s Aquatics, earned the Andy Coan Award as the meet’s outstanding male swimmer. Coan, a 1976 Pine Crest graduate and former world record holder died at age 59 of liver cancer.

Zum Tobel, one of only three non-Bolles winners, captured the 50-yard freestyle in 20.54 and 100-yard freestyle in 45.00. Diego Balbi of St. Andrew’s won the 100-yard backstroke in 51.48 and Allen Levitis led a Pine Crest top four-diver sweep with 499.55 points.

During the match, Evgeniia Chikunova, 16, of Energy Standard set a world junior record in the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:17.57. She bettered her old record of 2:17.71 set in 2019 by 0.14 seconds.

It is the second consecutive International Swimming League head-to-head match for Energy Standard and the London Roar, two of the top teams in the league since its inception.
