May 2, 2015—South Florida Aquatic Club took up where it left off on the second and final day of the IMX Challenge.

On a sun-drenched Saturday at Academic Village Swimming Pool, SOFLO had six multi-event winners during the second and third sessions.

Kathleen Golding, 14, led the SOFLO girls’ team with four victories. She won the 200-meter butterfly in 2:32.87; 200-meter backstroke in 2:38.63; 200-meter breaststroke in 2:57.29 and 400-meter individual medley in 5:15.04.

Erika Pelaez, 8, who won two events on opening day, added three more wins and two best times on the second day. She won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:25.88; the 100-meter backstroke in 1:22.33, dropping 3.59 seconds off her previous best; and 100-meter breaststroke 1:40.72, dropping 8.76 seconds.

Pelaez amassed the most points among her teammates with 4,193 in the pentathlon (five events).

Jessica Rodriguez, 16, was a double winner in the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:49.72 and 400-meter individual medley in 5:30.48.

SOFLO also had three individual winners. Kyana Castro, 12, won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:12.16; Kayla Cunningham, 12, won the 100-meter backstroke in 1:16.03; and Molly Golding, 12, won the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:27.57.

Aly Pacitti, 17, of Plantation Swim Team was the only other girls’ double winner. She won the 200-meter butterfly in a best time 2:37.86, dropping 2.14 and 200-yard backstroke in 2:37.49.

Zackary Harris, 10, led SOFLO boys with three wins. He won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:20.38; the 100-meter backstroke in a best time 1:24.12, dropping 4.93 and 100-meter breaststroke in 1:38.47.

Joseph Lee, 12, was a double winner in the 100-meter butterfly in 1:11.26 and 100-meter breaststroke in 1:24.99.

Rafael Rodriguez, 13, won the 200-meter backstroke in 2:25.55 and 400-meter individual medley in 5:07.08.

Samuel Quintero won the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:52.05.

Plantation Swim Team had two individual winners. Lance Lesage, 12, won the 100-meter backstroke in 1:13.07. Teammate Felipe Farias, 17, won the 400-meter individual medley in a best time 4:57.17, dropping 1:29.02.

Julio Horrego, 16, of Hialeah Swim Club was also a double winner in the 200-meter backstroke in 2:21.48 and 200-meter breaststroke in 2:26.09.

Swimmers not only got in some good racing over two days but will get the chance to see how they stack up against the rest of the nation’s age group swimmers in the USA Swimming program once times are compiled and compared.

USA Swimming’s IMX (Xtreme) Challenge is a series of five or six events. Once swimmers complete the IMX program they can see where their score ranks nationally, among their local LSC and own swim club.

In addition to host SOFLO, other teams that competed were Azura Florida Aquatics, Hialeah Swim Club, North Miami Swim Team, Plantation Swim Team and SwimFast.
