By Sharon Robb
GREENSBORO, N.C., November 29, 2021–South Florida Aquatic Club will be well-represented at this week’s Toyota U.S. Open Championships at Greensboro Aquatic Center.

Olympian Julio Horrego and state champion Juan Mora will compete in the four-day long course meters that gets under way Wednesday and ends Saturday.

On Thursday, Horrego will compete in the 200-meter individual medley and Mora the 50-meter freestyle. On Friday they will both swim the 100-meter breaststroke and Saturday the 200-meter breaststroke.

Horrego’s last major meet was the 2020 Tokyo Olympics where he represented Honduras in his Olympic debut in the 100- and 200-meter breaststroke.

It will be Mora’s first big meet since winning the State 4A title in the 100-meter breaststroke. Mora won in 54.71. He went a best time 54.65 in prelims to earn the top seed and automatic All-American time. He was also fifth in the 100-yard butterfly in a best time 49.48. It was the first time he dipped under 50 seconds. He was a two-time district and two-time region champion and now state champion during the post-season.

Last year, there were nine locations of the meet, which was scored virtually across the country. This year, it has returned to a one-meet format.

The meet begins Wednesday with the women’s and men’s 800-meter freestyle event. There will be plenty of familiar faces in the field.

Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Katie Ledecky is the top seed in the 800 in 8:12.57. She is competing unattached for Florida, where she is now training with Anthony Nesty. It will be Ledecky’s first meet since moving to Gainesville to train. SOFLO’s Kathleen Golding, 21, of University of Florida and Blair Stoneburg, 17, of Treasure Coast Aquatics are also in the 800 field of 23 swimmers.

Olympic gold medalist Bobby Finke, 22, of University of Florida and St. Petersburg, heads the men’s 800 field as top seed in 7:41.87.

Ledecky, Golding, Stoneburg and Julia Podkoscielny of Pine Crest Swimming are entered in the 400 freestyle. Stoneburg is also entered in the 50 freestyle. Podkoscielny and Golding are also in the 400 IM. Golding, Stoneburg and Podkoscielny are in the 100 and 200 freestyles. Podkoscielny is also in the 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke. Stoneburg is also entered in the 1500 freestyle and 100 freestyle.

Bruno Fratus, 32, of Coral Springs Swim Club and 2020 Olympic bronze medalist, is top seed in the 50 freestyle in 21.57 and 13th seed in the 100 freestyle.

Haitian Olympian Davidson Vincent of Azura Florida Aquatics will swim the 100-meter butterfly along with Josiah Morales of PAQ and Abbas Qali of Azura. Yeziel Morales of Azura will swim the 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke.

Jensen Beach’s Blair Stoneburg Makes History; SOFLO Trio Wins State Relay; Gulliver Prep Wins Girls Team Title At State 2A Meet


By Sharon Robb
STUART, November 5, 2021—Blair Stoneburg of Jensen Beach made history in her final FHSAA State 2A Swimming and Diving Championship appearance Friday at rainsoaked Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center.

The senior, going into the meet with five state titles added four more gold medals to join an elite group of swimmers in state history to win nine titles. Only 20 swimmers have won seven or more gold medals. Hollywood’s Katherine Rawls holds the record of 14 from 1931-1935.

“This night was pretty picture-perfect,” Stoneburg said.

The U.S. junior national team member and University of Wisconsin-commit won the 200-yard freestyle in a best time 1:46.96 and 500-yard freestyle in 4:42.04, also a best time. Both times were automatic All-American times. Her previous bests were 1:50.96 and 4:53.28 respectively.

Stoneburg was also a member of the winning 200-yard freestyle relay that won in 1:37.09. She anchored the relay in the fastest split of 22.55 while her younger sister Brynn led off with a 24.75 split.

Stoneburg also anchored the winning 400-yard freestyle relay that won in 3:31.41. She had the fastest split in 48.85. Brynn Stoneburg led off with the second fastest split of 52.52.

As a freshman, Stoneburg won the 100-yard freestyle; as a sophomore the 100-yard butterfly and 200-meter freestyle; and as a junior won the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle and was a member of the winning 400-yard freestyle.

“As a freshman I don’t know what I was thinking, I wish I would have written it down,” Stoneburg said. “I think freshman year Blair would be very proud of where I am now and very thankful for the people who supported me along the way. It’s been a crazy four years but a really fun four years and four years that I will never forget.

“It is a little bittersweet,” Stoneburg said. “I don’t know if it’s hit me yet that this is my last state championship. I think it will hit me tomorrow maybe when I am talking to my family about everything.”

Brynn Stoneburg, a sophomore, was second in the 100-yard backstroke in a best time 57.52, bettering her previous best of 59.29. She was also third in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:51.10, another best time, shaving 4.46 off her previous best of 1:55.56.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Anthony Martinez, Agustin Rodriguez and Matthew Tarafa joined leadoff swimmer Ronny Rueda to win the 400-yard freestyle relay in 3:10.73.

Gulliver Prep, buoyed by depth and relay win, won the girls’ team title with 247 points. The 200-yard medley relay of Giovanna Musiello, Reese Rosenthal, Elyse Wood and Cassandra Kraft won in 1:47.20. Its’ 200-yard freestyle relay was second in 1:38.43 and 400-yard freestyle relay third in 3:37.23.

Jensen Beach, third last year, finished runner-up among the girls’ field of 41 teams with 195 points. Cardinal Gibbons was the top Broward team placing ninth with 96 points. Two-time defending girls state 2A champion Pine Crest did not compete after moving back to 1A classification this year.

“I’m super proud of the entire team,” Stoneburg said. “We all had amazing swims. We really fed off each other’s energy. As one person would finish the other person would go. It really carried over. I’m really thankful for them. They helped me have the senior year I have been dreaming about.”

Jacksonville Bishop Kenny won the boys team title with 230 points. Panama City Arnold was second with 199.5 and Mater Lakes Academy was third with 152. Pompano Beach was the top Broward team finishing sixth with 99 points.

The Class 1A meet, featuring top teams Pine Crest, South Florida Heat, St. Andrew’s and King’s Academy and SOFLO’s Maddy Smutny, Olivia Dinehart, Elene Dinehart and Nat Gembicki of Cutler Bay, is Saturday at Sailfish Splash Waterpark.

Ten High School Records Fall At King’s Academy Short Course Meters Invite


By Sharon Robb

WEST PALM BEACH, September 4, 2021—-Ten national high school records were broken Saturday at the King’s Academy Short Course Meters Invite.

Following COVID safety precautions, the meet was capped at 120 swimmers and five teams: Jensen Beach, St. Andrew’s, Lake Worth Christian, South Florida Heat and host King’s Academy.

The day-long meet featured four 2020 U.S. Olympic trials qualifiers. All four broke at least one record.

Wisconsin-bound Blair Stoneburg of Jensen Beach broke three national high school records, Stanford commit Joshua Zuchowski of King’s Academy broke two, freshman Erika Pelaez of South Florida Heat broke two, sophomore Aspen Gersper of St. Andrew’s broke one and St. Andrew’s broke two girls’ relay records.

Stoneburg broke the 200-meter freestyle record (2:00.38) in 1:57.83. She is the first high school female under 2 minutes in short course meters this year. She broke the 400-meter freestyle in 4:08.12, breaking both the public and private records. She broke the 500-meter freestyle record by 14 seconds in 5:10.56.

Zuchowski broke the 200-meter individual medley record (2:00.37) in 1:58.89. He is the first high school male to dip under 2 minutes this year. He also broke his own independent national record (53.80) in the 100-meter backstroke in in 53.77.

Pelaez broke the 50-meter freestyle record of 25.75 in 25.01, faster than both the Independent and public school by .50 seconds. She also broke the 100-meter freestyle in 54.75 independent and public school records.

Gersper broke the 100-meter butterfly in 1:01.01, breaking the independent record by .05 seconds.

St. Andrew’s broke the girls’ 200-meter freestyle relay independent record of 1:46.37 in 1:45.70 with Gersper, Logan Zielinski, Nicole Aguilar and Erin Miller. The Scots also broke the 400-meter freestyle independent school record in 3:49.26 with Gersper, Aguilar, Ella Martinez and Miller.

“I would like to say that this is very fast swimming early season,” said King’s Academy coach Jonathan Zuchowski. “If you look at the national records previously, you have never seen times this fast this early.

“I can only assume this is the fastest high school short course meters meet ever. I imagine it’s also a record for most national records at one high school meet.

“I knew if we could bring some of our local South Florida talent together we could have a fast early season meet. I wish the meet could have been bigger and invited schools like Pine Crest but maybe next year. The kids were amazing, up cheering for everyone.”

The King’s Academy high school team and Flood Aquatics (FAST) club team do not train long course meters. The team switched the pool from short course yards into short course meters to try for about a month and “just switch things up and shock the body a little,” Zuchowski said. “Monday we go back to short course yards until next August.”

St. Andrew’s Scots swept the combined, girls and boys team totals.
