South Florida Aquatic Club’s Steph Campo took up where she left off at the CAT Escape The Heat Swim Meet in Clearwater on Thursday night in her home pool.

Campo, 14, turned in another career-best time on the opening night of the inaugural Michael Lohberg Invitational at Coral Springs Aquatic Complex.

Campo finished second in the 13-and-over 800-meter freestyle in a best 9:53.63. Her previous best was 9:55.66.

SOFLO teammate Audrey Mason, 14, was third in the 13-and-over 400-meter individual medley in 5:48.66.

The four-day meet featuring several teams including Bermuda, honors six-time Olympic coach Michael Lohberg who died April 4, 2011 at age 61 after a lengthy battle with aplastic anemia.

The Hall of Fame coach was instrumental in turning the Coral Springs Swim Club program into a national-caliber team.

The meet continues Friday with a full schedule of prelims at 8:30 a.m. and finals at 5:30 p.m.
