By Sharon Robb

January 11, 2015—If Day One of the Gulliver Long Course Senior Invitational is any indication, it’s going to be a very competitive long course season.

On a chilly, windswept day at Gulliver Prep’s Marian Krutulis Aquatic Facility in Miami, Lisa Blackburn, a Bermuda national record holder, did well in her first meet representing South Florida Aquatic Club.

At 43, the oldest swimmer in the field won the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:18.46; second in the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:54.71 and fifth in the 50-meter freestyle in 28.93.

Some of SOFLO’s other top swims:

Kathleen Golding, 14, fourth in both the 400-meter freestyle in 4:35.24 and 100-meter breaststroke in 1:24.42.

Stephanie Mlujeak, 16, swam a best time 5:10.72 in the 400-meter freestyle, dropping 0.37.
