June 11, 2017—Mother Nature may have shortened the Gulf Coast Swim Team Summer Open, but it didn’t rain on South Florida Aquatic Club’s parade and great showing.

SOFLO knocked off Swim Florida by nearly 200 points to capture the boys’ team title with 759 points. Swim Florida was second with 560 and Gulf Coast was third with 343.

Swim Florida won the combined team title with 1,423 points with SOFLO runner-up with 1,305. Swim Florida also won the girls team title with 863 points and SOFLO was second with 546.

The meet was stopped just before the 11-12 boys’ 100-meter freestyle final. After waiting it out, officials cancelled the remainder of the meet. The preliminary results were scored as final results.

Making its first major road trip of the season, SOFLO dominated the three-day meet with some outstanding swims and time drops at Lee County/Florida Gulf Coast Aquatics Center.

SOFLO dominated the boys and girls relays on the final day of competition. SOFLO won the girls 11-12 200-meter freestyle relay in 2:15.95 with Kaitlyn Barrios, Alexis Christensen, Kailey Smith and Victoria Torres.

SOFLO girls also won the 15-and-over 400-meter freestyle relay in 4:19.62 with Jennifer Rodriguez, Kayla Cunningham, Kathleen Golding and Jessica Rodriguez. SOFLO’s B relay was fourth in 4:34.41.

SOFLO boys swept the 200-meter freestyle relay events. The 10-and-under team of Javier Colmenares, Jonathan Lozano, Owen Smith and Alessandro Pereira won in 2:13.67. The 11-12 team of Logan Gonzalez, Lucas Porven, Sebastian Shy and Moises Rodriguez won in 2:12.27.

SOFLO swept the top three spots in the boys 400-meter freestyle relay with the A team winning in 3:50.86 with Rafael Rodriguez, Juan Serna, Heath Brames and Luke Lezotte.
