SOFLO Swimmers Help Cypress Bay End Nova’s Four-Year, 32-Meet Win Streak


By Sharon Robb

September 23, 2014–Cypress Bay girls swim team snapped the 32-meet win streak held by Nova since 2011.

Cypress Bay defeated the Titans, 114-71, for one of the swim program’s biggest victories Tuesday at the Nova Aquatic Center.

The defending Region 4-4A champion Cypress Bay Lightning relied on its talent, depth and diving.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Kylie Herman and Emiliana Pelaez were double winners for Cypress Bay.

Herman won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:03.99 and 500-yard freestyle in 5:35.93 and also anchored the winning 400-yard freestyle relay.

Pelaez swept the 50- and 100-yard freestyles in 25.88 and 55.26.

Other individual winners were Sarah Bucaro in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:24.10 and Alemy Barreto in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:14.50.

Cypress Bay ended the meet with its first relay victory of the day in the 400-yard freestyle relay in 3:58.49 with Emiliana Pelaez, SOFLO’s Carly Swanson, Sarah Bucaro and Herman.

Cypress Bay also picked up valuable points from its three divers while Nova had no divers.

Amanda Tipton was a double winner for Nova which also won the 200-yard medley and 200-yard freestyle relays.

“End of an era,” Nova coach Karney McNear wrote on the team’s Facebook page.

“But not too bad for a non-private, non-charter, non-magnet, non-neighborhood, Title One school in South Florida.”
