Jacksonville Bolles Sweeps State 1A Team Titles; SOFLO’s Olivia Dinehart Repeats As State Champion; Kaii Winkler Breaks NAG Record


By Sharon Robb
STUART, November 18, 2022–Cutler Bay High School senior Olivia Dinehart left a lasting impression Friday night at the FHSAA State 1A Swimming and Diving Championship at Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center.

The South Florida Aquatic Club and Auburn-bound swimmer defended her title in the 100-yard breaststroke in a best time 1:01.60, an automatic All-American time with a 0.88 time drop. Last year she won in 1:02.18.

Dinehart was also sixth in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:04.26 and was a member of the sixth place 200-yard medley and seventh place 400-yard freestyle relay teams.

Jacksonville Bolles swept the boys and girls team titles and continued its unmatched winning streaks.

Bolles topped a field of 40 boys teams with 546 points. South Florida Heat was runnerup with 182 points followed by St. Andrew’s (172.5) and Pine Crest (162).

Bolles, with only one relay win but plenty of depth, won the girls title among a 43-team field with 374 points. King’s Academy was second with 237 and St. Andrew’s was third with 229 points.

Bolles has won every boys state championship since 1988 and every girls title since 1991, and with decades of tradition on the line, Bolles kept the streak going. Bolles has now won a record 35 boys titles and 32 girls titles to continue as the state’s all-time high school swimming dynasty.

Julia Podkoscielny of Pine Crest finished her illustrious high school career with a state title in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:58.81, a time drop of 4.48 seconds and automatic All-American time. The University of Florida-bound swimmer finished with six individual state titles (10 overall including four relays). She was also second in the 100 backstroke in 54.56.

The only other individual event Broward state champion was double winner Erika Pelaez of South Florida Heat in the 100-yard butterfly in 52.12 and 100-yard backstroke in 52.30, both automatic All-American times. The North Carolina State commit also led off the state champion 400-yard freestyle relay that won in 3:24.30 with teammates Alanis Santiago, Mia Patton and Gioia Balzano.

Top-seeded Bolles (1:25.12) was disqualified in the boys’ 200-yard freestyle relay final opening the door for second-seeded Pine Crest (1:27.92) to rise to the occasion and capture the state title in 1:26.56 with Colin Nealy (21.56), Lucas Opperman (21.57), Kingsley Bailey (21.46) and Roman Ferrara (21.97). The relay dropped 1.13 seconds off its entry time of 1:27.69.

Kaii Winkler, 16, of South Florida Heat was a double winner in the boys’ 200-yard freestyle in 1:34.18, a time drop of 5.09 seconds, breaking Caeleb Dressel’s state high school record of 1:34.69. He also won the 100-yard freestyle in 42.52, his first sub-43 breaking the 15-16 national age group record of Ryan Hoffer’s 42.67 set in 2014 and breaking Ryan Murphy’s state high school record of 42.95. His splits were 20.57 and 21.95. He also split 18.98 on his freestyle split to open the meet in the 200-yard medley relay.

Pine Crest boys diving was shut out of a state title after dominating the event for six consecutive years by Kevin Mendez, one of the state’s most decorated athletes. Pine Crest’s Allen Levitis finished second with 476.75 points behind Lake Highland Prep’s Jack Bessire with 515.45.

It was evident the week delay imposed by the FHSAA because of Hurricane Nicole affected several athletes while a handful were out of the country on planned field trips including Pine Crest top diver Ava Andersen. The host meet facility was not damaged and teams were able to travel last weekend, the meet’s original date.

The FHSAA State 2A concludes the high school season on Saturday with prelims and finals. SOFLO swimmers competing are: Natalia Sibug, Sofia Hernandez, Sofia Osorio, Sabrina Osorio, Sebastian Fernandez, Felix Gonzalez, Giorgio Rusconi, Enrique Rodriguez, Aldo Zepeda and Carlos Salas.

Several swimmers are missing because of the FHSAA State 1A and 2A meets being moved to this weekend by the FHSAA after Hurricane Nicole, even though the facility in Stuart was not damaged and all high school teams were able to travel and were tapered for last weekend, the original dates.

TYR SEPTEMBER GIRL SWIMMER OF THE MONTH: Jianna Amores


By Sharon Robb
PEMBROKE PINES, November 10, 2022–Jianna Amores is happy she chose swimming.

Amores, 12, a seventh grade home schooler competed in gymnastics, volleyball, tennis, soccer and basketball and did dance and tap dance classes, but decided she wanted to focus on one sport.

“I’m glad I did,” Amores said. “I wanted to focus and get good at one sport. Gymnastics was really hard and I really like swimming. I gave up everything for swimming.”

Amores started swimming at 4 and then left the sport to try gymnastics. She returned to swimming two years ago and is happy she did. She already has her JO cut in the 100 butterfly.

“I wanted to try swimming out again,” she said. “SOFLO is fun and all the meets are good. I’ve made a lot of friends and Coach Issy is a great coach.”

Amores trains with head age group coach Isidro (Issy) Planell and Mako Sharks.

“I often speak with the Mako Sharks about leadership and how a true leader does not tell people what to do, but sets the standard for everyone in the room,” Coach Issy said. “Jia is a great worker simply put. Her results are just a tiny glimpse into the tremendous amount of work she puts in on a daily basis.

“She does not hesitate whenever I raise the bar nor does she challenge it. I give her a challenge and she tries to beat it always.

“She already had the JO cut in the butterfly but going a best time early in the season is never something to complain about.”

Coach Issy also coached her older siblings, Jaden, 15, and Jenesys, 13. “It’s safe to say she knew what was going to be expected of her in Makos from their experience,” Coach Issy said.

Amores said it is an advantage of following in her siblings’ foot steps.

“Being the youngest, they paved the way for me,” Amores said. “I learn from them. It’s a big advantage having an older brother and sister. I compare times when they were younger and I beat Jaden when he was 12 by one second in the 100 fly. They do support me at meets when they can even though they are 13-and-up and I am 12- and-under.”

Amores trains six days a week. She said the sport has helped her manage her time for school and watching TV. She hopes to swim in high school and earn a college scholarship.

“I like the training,” Amores said. “It is worth the time and sacrifice. I am happy to be there. I am having fun with my friends. I like competing against them and racing them. I am super competitive. I’ve always been so competitive. It helps me get better.”

Each TYR Swimmer of the Month receives a free TYR backpack. Amores joins SOFLO teammates Carolina Carrera (August), Lydia Smutny (July), Amber Connor (June), Eva Ortiz (May), Sally Golding (April), Natalie Gembicki (March), Sofia Lugo (February) and Valentina Remmele (January) as 2022 Swimmers of the Month.

SOFLO sponsor TYR is a USA manufacturer of recreational and competitive swimwear, caps, goggles, triathlon gear and accessories and one of the nation’s top companies.

TYR, created by athletes, is named for the Norse god of warriors in Germanic mythology. Among its female-sponsored athletes are ESPY Sportswoman of the Year Katie Ledecky, 2020 Olympians Simone Manuel, Lilly King, Annie Lazor, Ashley Twichell and other elite swimmers Melanie Margalis, Molly Hannis and Kelsi Dahlia.

TYR SEPTEMBER BOY SWIMMER OF THE MONTH: Lincoln Callaway Coy


By Sharon Robb
PEMBROKE PINES, November 9, 2022—When Lincoln Callaway Coy was learning how to swim in Margate his first coach called him “Lightning Lincoln.”

“I stayed in the lessons for a little while and I was the fastest one,” Coy said.

The 9-year-old fourth grade home schooler is now swimming with the Dippers at South Florida Aquatic Club and continues to work on his speed and technique with Coach Andrea Golding.

Coy started swimming at 5 in a recreation league with the Margate Motion. When he was 8, his family moved to Pembroke Pines where his mother Cristina found the closest club to their home which happened to be SOFLO. His older sister Isabella, 13, and little brother Judah, 5, also swim with SOFLO. His mom swims with the masters program.

“My kids are so much better than me, I empathize how hard it is,” Cristina said. “They really help each other. They are not super close in age so there’s no competition overlap. Whatever knowledge they gain they pass on to each other. They are good pals.

“I didn’t know SOFLO was the best team,” she said. “Swimming seemed like the most healthy way to keep athletic like their dad. Coming from a recreation league to USA Swimming was definitely a step up. We had a lot of work to put in. The coaching has been great.”

Coy has fit in nicely with his new club and coaches and is steadily improving. His first swim meet was the Firecracker Meet at Lake Lytal in July. Three months later he competed in five events at the SOFLO IMR Meet in the 100 individual medley (1:56.46), 100 freestyle (1:46.71), 50 backstroke (59.13), 50 breaststroke (56.64)and 50 butterfly and had two best times.

Coy was disqualified in the fly when his arms didn’t land in the water at the same time. But Coach Andrea told him “you learn the most about swimming when you are disqualified because you never do it again.”

Coy also competed in the 12-and-under 100 IM, 50 breaststroke and 50 freestyle at the Boca Raton Swim Team Not So Scary Halloween Meet. He swam a best time in the IM.

“I like swimming, it’s fun and you get to interact with more kids and learn how to do a very fun sport,” Coy said. “I have made a lot of friends and my teammates are fun to swim with.

“The IMR was my best meet. I did very good in it. I also swam with older kids on different teams which makes me happy because I get to learn more.

“I have been practicing very hard and been improving with Coach Andrea. My goal is speed. I want to get faster and lower my times.”

Golding enjoys working with Coy. “I am so lucky to have Lincoln in Dippers. He is one of the most polite, respectful, hard-working Dipper I have ever had. He shows up ready to train every day. He never complains and always gives his 100 percent effort in practice and at meets. He keeps working on improving his strokes. His work ethic and determination will take him far in the sport of swimming and life.”

He gets his work ethic from his dad, Nathan David Coy, a former top mixed martial arts welterweight American Top Team fighter. He also coached wrestling at ATT Coconut Creek before retiring from the sport. He was an All-American wrestler at Oregon State. He now works for the Florida Forest Service as a firefighter putting out wild fires in the Everglades and other areas.

His dad named Lincoln after one of his childhood heroes, Lincoln McIIravy, a top wrestler at Iowa coached by the legendary Dan Gable. The Hall of Fame freestyle welterweight competed in the Olympics, World Championships and Pan Amercan Games.

“I do wrestling with my dad,” Coy said. “He coaches me at our house. We do running, pushups and pullups. It helps me stay in shape for swimming.”

Coy, who swims four days a week, loves having an older sister to look up to.

“It helps a lot having an older sister in swimming,” he said. “She tells me what she is doing and helps me with a lot of things.

“I love swimming. It helps me stay strong and healthy and also helps my asthma. I am happy with my swimming. It’s worth all the training. I enjoy it a lot.”

His long range goals are swimming in high school and earning a college swimming scholarship. “I want to keep swimming, I don’t want to lose my technique,” he said.

Each TYR Swimmer of the Month receives a free TYR backpack. Coy joins SOFLO teammates Jacob Jones (August), Ethan Hall (July), Adrian Rendon (June), Niccolo Miccolis (May), Alex Golding (April), Guillermo Mantilla (March), Tristan Dons (February) and Hashan Ekanayake (January) as 2022 TYR Swimmers of the Month.
