SOFLO’s Wilson Makes First Futures Cut; Golding Wins On Day Two Of Florida Gold Coast Senior Championships


By Sharon Robb

CORAL SPRINGS, July 27, 2019—South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers had another good day despite Mother Nature at the Florida Gold Coast Senior Long Course Championships Saturday at the Michael Lohberg Pool of Champions.

Robert Wilson, 16, made his first qualifying standard in a 50-meter freestyle time trial for the USA Swimming Futures Championships. Wilson went a lifetime-best 24.51 despite racing with his slipped-off goggles in his mouth.

The morning prelim results were turned into timed finals when Mother Nature intervened wiping out the championship finals.

Sally Golding, 15, won the 200-meter breaststroke in a best time 2:51.22, shaving 0.18 off her previous best of 2:51.40. Golding was also a member of the fourth place 800-meter freestyle relay.

Other Top 10 SOFLO finishers were:

Alana Deo, 15, 200-meter breaststroke, eighth 2:57.70, time drop 4.48.

SOFLO’s girls 800-meter freestyle relay was fourth in 9:04.07 with Lucy Smutny, Melissa Marinheiro, Jennamarie Brames and Sally Golding.

Philopatier Ibrahim, 16, 200-meter freestyle, sixth, 1:58.81, 0.75 time drop; 100-meter butterfly, ninth, 1:00.05, time drop, 0.69.

Juan Colmenares, 15, 50-meter backstroke, seventh, 28.94, time drop 0.48.

John Paul Handal, 16, 200-meter breaststroke, eighth, 2:36.59, time drop 1.74; 400-meter individual medley, sixth, 4:53.14, time drop 5.61.

Leonardo Mateus, 17, 400-meter individual medley, sixth, 4:46.70, time drop 2.70.

The three-day meet concludes Sunday with prelims and finals, weather permitting.

SOFLO has 45 swimmers in 191 individual events and 18 relays trying to improve on last year’s eighth place finish among combined teams with 481 points. Azura Florida Aquatics is two-time defending champion.
