American Heritage Sweeps David Posnack JCC In Dual Meet; SOFLO’s Pinon, Kopecki, Rossi Score

By Sharon Robb

October 7, 2014—In a more relaxing atmosphere, American Heritage got the opportunity to swim most of its swimmers in its meet against David Posnack JCC.

American Heritage won the combined, 259-68; girls, 120-40 and boys, 139-28, team titles.

Because of Posnack’s lack of depth, American Heritage swept the top three places in several events and swept all three boys and girls relays.

The boys won every individual event and swept all three relays.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Julien Pinon and Fernando Bohorquez were double winners.

Pinon won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:45.71 and 100-yard freestyle in 48.06.

Bohorquez won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:00.75 and 100-yard butterfly in 53.12.

SOFLO teammate CJ Kopecki won his first event in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:57.29, the only swimmer to dip under 5 minutes. Kopecki was also a member of the winning 200-yard medley and 400-yard freestyle relays.

SOFLO’s Cristian Rossi was third in the 100-yard butterfly in 1:01.39 and was a member of the winning 200-yard freestyle relay team.

In the girls races, American Heritage won every event except the 100-yard breaststroke won by Posnack’s Maddie Sumkin in 1:22.03.

Catharine Cooper, Alexandra Pacitti and Lindsay Hay were double winners. Cooper won off-events in the 200-yard freestyle in 2:02.90 and 500-yard freestyle in 5:27.21.

Pacitti won the 100-yard butterfly in 1:06.71 and 100-yard backstroke in 1:06.65.

Hay won the 100-yard freestyle in 56.90 and 200-yard individual medley in 2:19.53.
