BCAA Fall Sports Conditioning Targeted For September 21 Starting Date


By Sharon Robb

FORT LAUDERDALE, September 2, 2020–After weeks of uncertainty, Broward County sports have been given the green light to begin fall conditioning.

If the COVID-19 positivity rate continues to decline, Broward County Athletic Association teams will be allowed to begin fall conditioning on Sept. 21st.

Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie made the long-awaited announcement on Tuesday.

“If the COVID-19 positivity rate continues to decline as we’ve seen, we have identified Monday, Sept. 21st as a potential start date for voluntary workouts for fall sports,” Runcie said.

Conditioning includes cardiovascular training, weight training and drills for all sports.

Runcie said workouts will be held outdoors only for the first week. In the second week voluntary workouts will continue outside and gradually phase into gyms and weight rooms.

However, the conditioning starting date does not necessarily mean competitive seasons will begin any time soon. Teams, particularly in revenue-generating football, are expected to condition and practice for several weeks.

“We will continue to work with our sports medicine and student-athlete wellness committees, our athletic trainers, athletic directors and health advisors to ensure a safe re-start of athletics,” Runcie said.

The Greater Miami Athletic Conference has no starting date yet for its high school conditioning or sports schedules.

The Broward County Athletic Association is the largest high school athletic conference in Broward County and second largest in the state.

The BCAA includes all public schools in Broward County and several charter and private schools including Pembroke Pines Charter. However, some private schools do not have to follow BCAA decisions and have already started practicing football including state champion Chaminade-Madonna and American Heritage Plantation and plan to start competing in mid-September.

In Palm Beach County, Glades Day, which opened its football practice Aug. 24, suspended its high school practice because two students tested positive for COVID-19, but plans to resume on Sept. 8. Three public schools in the Treasure Coast also had to suspend practice because of students testing positive.

At the FHSAA’s most recent board meeting on Aug. 14, the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee remained firm and recommended further delays. SMAC determined a positive rate percent of new cases should be below five percent for at least 14 days. Still, the FHSAA decided to start practice on Aug. 24 and football season on Sept. 4 for most districts in the state.

Runcie also said Broward County officials will continue to talk with Miami-Dade and Palm Beach districts.

“Conversations will continue as it relates to the FHSAA’s involvement and participating to ensure our students will have the opportunity to participate in fall sports,” Runcie said.

BCAA Delays Fall Practice; Pine Crest Cancels Fall Sports, Woodson Invitational


By Sharon Robb

FORT LAUDERDALE, July 22, 2020—The Broward County Athletic Association will not follow the Florida High School Athletic Association’s mandate to open fall sports practice on Monday, July 27th.

The BCAA announced it will delay fall practice for all fall sports including revenue-maker football because of the COVID-19 pandemic’s increased cases in South Florida.

On Monday, the BCAA Sports office tweeted: “Despite FHSAA’s announcement that practices start this Monday, July 27th for Fall Sports, the BCAA membership remains united to stay home, safe and healthy until further notice. We will always put all of our student-athletes, coaches, volunteers and school personnel’s safety first.”

Non-BCAA members American Heritage Plantation, Chaminade-Madonna and NSU University School are also delaying the start of their fall practices.

Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale has gone a step further by cancelling all fall sports including swimming and diving.

Student-athletes at several high schools will continue to condition in groups of 10 or fewer athletes at staggered times while wearing facemasks and social distancing.

Osceola County, Orange County, Seminole County and Hillsborough County are also all pushing back their fall practice start dates.

During the FHSAA’s Board of Directors meeting Monday, officials decided to not adhere to the findings by its’ own medical advisory board, SMAC (Sports Medicine Advisory Committee) which outlined safety precautions and recommended that the start of football and girls volleyball seasons be delayed because they are considered “high risk” sports.

PINE CREST CANCELS FALL SPORTS

FORT LAUDERDALE, July 22, 2020—Pine Crest has decided to cancel its fall sports including swimming and diving.

“Like many independent school and collegiate teams, Pine Crest will not participate in Middle and Upper School competitive sports in the fall,” school officials announced in a school release sent to parents.

“Physical education, swim, and tennis will be offered for Lower, Middle and Upper School students when it is safe and prudent to do so. For Middle and Upper School students, coaches will continue to provide individual, specialized, and small group training before, during, and after school.”

The Panthers are defending Class 2A boys and girls state champions in swimming and diving. The Florida Gold Coast club program is expected to train on a limited basis but has yet to return to the campus school pool where it trains.

The Woodson Invitational, the state’s oldest high school swim meet, has also been cancelled for the first time in more than five decades.

Pine Crest will welcome students back to campus on August 19 with several safety protocols in place to help maintain a healthy environment, school officials said. Students will have the option to complete school online or in the classroom.

Machado won the 200-yard freestyle in the county’s fastest time of 1:41.81, breaking the BCAA record of 1:42.41 set by Cypress Bay alum Franco Lupoli in 2011. Machado also won the 100-yard freestyle in 46.74, also the county’s fastest this season.

In an exciting girls competition, the Lightning, led by individual winners Gaby Banks and Elle Koch and relays, won the team title with 585 points. St. Thomas Aquinas was runner-up with 557 points and Cooper City was third with 437.

Golding finished with 45 points.

St. Thomas Aquinas’ Juan Zapata continued his outstanding season with wins in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:54.72 and 100-yard butterfly in 50.72, flirting with St. Thomas alum Bradley Alley’s 2004 meet record of 50.26. He finished with 48 points in high point.

Cypress Bay flexed its muscles in the relay competition sweeping all three boys’ relays. The Lightning’s only other winner was Luis Bucaro in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:40.65.

There were three other individual winners from Western, St. Thomas Aquinas and South Broward.

Eduardo Lopez of Western won the 50-yard freestyle in 22.25, knocking off Cooper City’s Robert Wilson, second in 22.40.

Lance Lesage, competing for St. Thomas for the first season after transferring from Fort Lauderdale, won his first BCAA title in the 100-yard backstroke in 53.83.

Andy Rogatinsky of South Broward, enjoying a good season, won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:00.27 and was third in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:00.59. He finished with 44 points.

Freshman Giulianna Garcia of Monarch won the 100-yard butterfly in 59.36. She was the only swimmer to dip under a minute and was also the first BCAA girls champion for Monarch. She was the fastest qualifier in morning prelims in 1:00.07.
