FORT LAUDERDALE, September 14, 2022–Despite threatening skies, Pine Crest opened its weather-delayed dual meet season on a successful note.

After its Calvary Christian-Somerset Academy home meet was rained out last week, the host Panthers swept NSU University School girls and boys teams by identical scores, 129-44.

The girls were led by double winners Julia Podkoscielny and Riley Botting.

Podkoscielny, fresh off the Junior Pan Pacific Games, won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:07.52 and 100-yard freestyle in 54.16.

Botting won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:57.47 and 500-yard freestyle in 5:10.23.

Pine Crest swept all three girls relays.

The only NSU University School winner was sprinter Liliana Novak in the 50-yard freestyle in 26.07.

The boys team was led by double winner Kingsley Bailey in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:49.67 and 100-yard freestyle in 50.27.

Salvatore Lanzafame was a double winner for NSU University School in the 100-yard butterfly in 52.77 and 100-yard backstroke in 1:01.77.

Pine Crest swept all three boys relays.

Pine Crest swept the diving titles. Ava Anderson won the girls event with 263.47 points. Allen Levitis won the boys event with 301.80 points.
