By Sharon Robb
STUART, July 18, 2022—South Florida Aquatic Club finished runner-up in the combined and boys team standings and third among the girls teams Sunday at the 14&Under Florida Gold Coast Junior Olympics at Sailfish Splash Waterpark.

St. Andrews Aquatics won its second consecutive JO title, sweeping the combined, boys and girls team titles. The Boca Raton club also won the short course JOs combined and girls team titles in March at Coral Springs.

St. Andrew’s Aquatics won the combined with 671 points followed by SOFLO with 468 and Wahoos of Wellington with 421.

In a close battle for the boys team title, St. Andrew’s Aquatics won with 253.50 points. SOFLO was second with 227 and defending champion Metro Aquatics was third with 217. One point separated St. Andrew’s and SOFLO headed into Sunday’s boys prelims where St. Andrew’s picked up clutch points in the relays.

Longtime and beloved coach Rose Lockie coached her final meet before retiring from club coaching at SOFLO and high school coaching at Pembroke Pines Charter. Lockie will start her retirement with a trip to Seattle and then a “dream” Alaskan cruise.

“On this, my last day of coaching, I would like to thank you all for the wonderful memories I will be taking with me. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a member of this amazing team,” Coach Rose wrote in a note to coaches, swimmers and parents.

“A special thank you to Coach Chris for giving me the opportunity to coach Bronze from Day 1; to Coach Luis and Coach George, who have been by my side for 16 years. I wish you all the very best. Swimmers train hard to reach your goals. Good luck. So, thank you again as I move on to another chapter of my life. I will miss you all.”

SOFLO’s Christie Ann Lumsden and Juan Vallmitjana led in high point. Lumsden finished third with 42 points and Vallmitjana finished fourth with 31 points.

SOFLO’s 13-14 200-meter freestyle relay was third in 1:56.68 with Lydia Smutny, Jenesys Amores, Tania Mantilla and Katelyn Gembicki.

SOFLO’s 11-12 200-meter medley relay was third in 2:14.98 with Saree Young, Gianna Martin, Jianna Amores and Laila Harran.

By Sharon Robb
STUART, July 17, 2022—South Florida Aquatic Club leads the boys team standings going into the fourth and final day of the 14&Under Florida Gold Coast Junior Olympics at Sailfish Splash Waterpark.

SOFLO and St. Andrew’s are in a dogfight for the boys’ team title with SOFLO leading 170-169. Defending champion Metro Aquatics is third with 153.

St. Andrew’s has all but clinched the girls team title with 284.50 points. Wahoos of Wellington is second with 176 and SOFLO is third with 171.

Christian Ann Lumsden, 10, won her second event in the 50-meter breaststroke in a best time 41.18, bettering her previous best of 41.36. She was also third in the 100-meter freestyle in a best time 1:08.33. She has compiled 27 points in high point.

Juan Vallmitjana, 13, was second in the 400-meter freestyle in a best time 4:16.68, bettering his previous best of 4:30.38.

SOFLO boys 200-meter medley relay was second in 2:44.29 with Michael Barber, Toma Petkov, Ethan Phan and Niccolo Miccolis.
