With so many high quality swimmers, the Region 4-2A Swimming and Diving Championships at Florida Gulf Coast University felt more like a state meet than a region meet.

Archbishop McCarthy and Pembroke Pines Charter did manage to qualify its top boys swimmers for the FHSAA State 2A Swimming and Diving Championships on Thursday at the Orlando YMCA Aquatic Center.

Pembroke Pines Charter senior Ivan Parada leads the SOFLO contingent. Parada is seeded 13th in the 100-yard freestyle in 48.93 and 22nd in the 200-yard backstroke in 56.29.

Archbishop McCarthy senior Ryan Hall will return to state in one individual event and two relays. Hall qualified in the 100-yard freestyle and is seeded 18th in 49.22.

Mavericks teammate Kry Nichlany, a junior who trains with the Davie Nadadores, qualified in the 100-yard butterfly and is seeded 16th in 53.60.

Archbishop McCarthy also qualified its 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. The 200 free relay is seeded 16h in 1:31.49 with Matthew Mila, JoJo Perez, Nichlany and Hall.

The 400 free relay is seeded 13th in 3:19.91 with the same foursome.

SOFLO’s Jordan Colon, a sophomore at Mater Academy, qualified for his first state meet in the 100-yard breaststroke. He is seeded 17th for states with a best time of 1:02.55.

Pembroke Pines Charter and Archbishop McCarthy boys teams had their 200-yard medley relay teams disqualified for early take-off and stroke infraction.

Riviera Beach Suncoast won the girls team title with 343 points, an 18-point margin over runner-up Naples Gulf Coast.

Boys powerhouse Miami Belen Jesuit won the boys team title by nearly 100 points with 353 points ahead of Gulf Coast with 258.

For Belen, senior Julian Ballestas won the 100 freestyle (46.17) and was on two winning relays. Junior Boleck De Pawlikowski won the 100 backstroke (52.70) and was on two winning relays. Belen Jesuit also swept the 200 medley relay (1:38.92), 200 freestyle relay (1:28.52) and 400 freestyle relay (3:13.36).

Senior Hannah Vandersluis of Suncoast won the 200 individual medley (2:07.84) and 100 breaststroke (1:06.88). Her little sister, Francesca, a freshman, was second in the 100 breaststroke in 1:08.97.

Senior Daniela Sorgente of Dreyfoos School of the Arts won the girls diving title with 466.45 points.

Senior Lauren Suarez of Forest Hill won the 100-yard freestyle (52.72). Sisters Lauren, Kristen and Julie Suarez won the 200 freestyle relay (1:41.58) and are the first sister trio to qualify on the same relay for the state meet.
