The future looks bright for South Florida Aquatic Club boys and girls swimmers after their performances at the three-day Florida Gold Coast Area 2 Developmental Meet at Academic Village Pool Sunday in Pembroke Pines.

On the third and final day, SOFLO swimmers swam to 24 Florida Gold Coast Junior Olympic qualifying times.

The boys, led by Rodrigo Rodriguez, totaled 13 FGJO times and girls, led by Audrey Mason, posted eleven FGJO times. Rodriguez and Mason each had three FGJO times.

Over three days, swimmers turned in sixty FGJO times (15 on Friday, 21 on Saturday and 24 on Sunday) and 217 career-best times.

“Our coaches had our swimmers very well-prepared, it was a great meet,” SOFLO CEO and Coach Chris Anderson said.

Mason, 13 won the 13-14 200-meter freestyle in 2:24.48; 50-meter freestyle in 31.23; and 200-meter backstroke in 2:50.46. All three times were career-bests.
