Hurricanes Win Season-Opener Against Florida International University, Head To SMU Classic This Weekend

By Sharon Robb
CORAL GABLES, October 3, 2022—University of Miami women’s swimming and diving team recently opened its season successfully with a win over cross-town rival Florida International University at Whitten Center Pool.

The Hurricanes defeated the Panthers, 196-103, in their first dual meet of the season.

“It was a good meet, lots of good energy,” UM head coach Andy Kershaw said. “The things I love about this is it really gives us a chance to evaluate the things we are doing well and what we can improve on. There are things to improve on, but we did a lot of things really well.”

One of Miami’s top-point scorers was junior diver and reigning NCAA national champion Mia Vallée, who won the 3-meter springboard with 308.93 points and finished second on 1-meter with 307.13. UM teammate and sophomore diver Emma Gullstrand won 1-meter springboard with 326.03 and second on 3-meter with 297.90 points.

Redshirt junior Adrianna Cera was a double winner in the 1,000-yard freestyle in 10:21.09 and 500-yard freestyle in 5:02.20. She was also a member of the winning 400-yard freestyle relay that won in 3:25.93.

Captain and veteran Zorry Mason won the 100-yard backstroke in 56.39 was second in the 200-yard breaststroke and 200-yard individual medley. She was also a member of the winning 200-yard medley relay.

Sophomore Jacey Hinton was also a double winner for the Hurricanes in the 50-yard freestyle in 23.26 and 100-yard freestyle in 51.01.

Miami’s next meet will be the Oct. 7-8 SMU Classic in Dallas.

“The SMU Classic is certainly very special,” Kershaw said. “It’s also challenging because we have a very limited travel squad, so I’m looking forward to going to that competition, but also have some mixed emotions since we’re going to have some people here in Miami. It’s always great to get a chance to get on the bus and race.”

The Hurricanes were ranked No. 22 in the SwimSwam pre-season power rankings. In addition to the return of Vallee, several veteran swimmers who helped combine for 25 Top-10 performances in school history last season return to the lineup.

“We’re super excited about the season,” Kershaw said. “The team seems to have a hunger to them. Swimming can be very focused towards March and the postseason, but our team is eager to play the game.

“Our sport can get so driven on practice, we really kind of emphasize the importance of letting the game drive the practices, and they have really embraced it.

“The Top 10s and success last year, it seemed to only make them more hungry. Sometimes you go through that and you feel a lot of satisfaction. In this situation, it put them on the doorstop and had them very hungry to complete that process.”

The meet also marked the debut of South Florida Aquatic Club lead age group coach Kyle Cormier, a volunteer assistant at FIU.

Florida Gators Announce 2022-23 Schedule; SOFLO Alum Kathleen Golding Named Team Captain

By Sharon Robb
GAINESVILLE, September 14, 2022—University of Florida will open its 2022-23 men’s and women’s schedule at home against Nova Southeastern and Arkansas on Sept. 23 at the O’Connell Center Natatorium.

The season-opener is one of four home meets. Arkansas has only a women’s team. NSU has both a men’s and women’s team.

After a month of training, the Gators head to Virginia to swim defending women’s national champion Cavaliers on Saturday, Oct. 22 in Charlottesville.

Florida will then swim conference opponents on back-to-back weeks, at Georgia in Athens, Ga. on Friday, Oct. 28 in its annual rivalry before returning to Gainesville to host Tennessee on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The Gators end the 2022 calendar year with three straight invitationals: Georgia Invite, Nov. 17-19, U.S. Open, Nov. 30-Dec. 3 in Greensboro, N.C. before diving ends 2022 at the Auburn Invitational, Dec. 16-20.

The 2023 part of the schedule opens at home Florida Atlantic University, Jan. 14, before hosting a diving invitational Jan. 20-21, while simultaneously swimming Florida State on Jan. 20 in Ocala, in its final dual meet. Two weeks later, the Gators will swim in the Feb. 3-5 Auburn Last Chance Invitational.

The Gators begin the post-season at the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships Feb. 14-16 in College Station, Tex. The men will go for their 11th straight conference titles, before the Bulldog Last Chance Meet from Feb. 24-25 in Athens. Qualified divers will compete at the NCAA Diving Zones from Mar. 5-8.

The season ends at the NCAA Swimming National Championships, with the women’s meet in Knoxville, Tenn., March 15-18 and men’s meet in Minneapolis, Minn., March 22-25.

One of the highlights of the season is South Florida Aquatic Club alum Kathleen Golding will serve as one of the Gators’ team captains for the 2022-23. The two-time U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier is a senior and three-time All-American. Her marquis events are the 200 and 400 IM though she swims several other events, both sprint and distance.

Golding’s younger sister, Molly, also a SOFLO alum, will begin her sophomore season in the IM and breaststroke events.

Other Gators with South Florida and Florida Gold Coast ties are sophomore Anna Auld of West Palm Beach, who is coming off an outstanding summer; and freshman Mallory Schleicher, another SOFLO alum.

Florida’s men’s and women’s head coach Anthony Nesty was recently named the 2022 American Swimming Coaches Association George Haines Coach of the Year at the ASCA World Clinic Sept. 8 in Las Vegas. Nesty joins former Florida coaches Gregg Troy and Randy Reese as the only coaches in Gators history to win the award.

The award is annually given to the individual whose coaching contributed the most towards American swimming excellence at the world level. Nesty was one of six finalists who coached athletes that won gold medals at the FINA World Championships last June in Budapest, Hungary.

Nesty coached multiple gold medalists in Budapest, including Caeleb Dressel, Bobby Finke, Kieran Smith and UF volunteer Coach Katie Ledecky. The four combined for eight gold medals, the most golds coached by any finalist for the award the year.

Six current Gators, four former Gators and volunteer coach Katie Ledecky were named to the 2022-23 U.S. National Team.

Anna Auld, Emma Weyant, Natalie Hinds, and Katie Ledecky were selected for the women’s team, and Brennan Gravley, Jacob Mitchell, Trey Freeman, Kevin Vargas, Caeleb Dressel, Bobby Finke, and Kieran Smith were named on the men’s roster. Florida has 11 athletes on the team, tied with Texas/Longhorn Aquatics for most-represented club/college. Auld and Gravley were both selected as open water athletes in May 2022, and are active through October 31, 2022.

University of Miami Women’s Team Wins Season-Opener Against Florida International

By Sharon Robb
MIAMI—University of Miami women’s swimming and diving team won its season-opener with a 162.5-137.5 victory over cross-town rival Florida International Saturday at Biscayne Bay Aquatic Center.

“It was a very good meet today on both sides, with lots of great racing and lots of back and forth,” Miami head coach Andy Kershaw said. “That’s what it’s all about. I’m very proud of our women and how they responded. It was definitely a team effort.”

UM redshirt sophomore Adrianna Cera, 20, won three events including the 1,000-yard freestyle in 10:17.78 and 500-yard freestyle in 4:58.78. She was also a member of the winning 400-yard freestyle relay that won in 3:25.67.

Veteran Carmen San Nicolas won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:50.64. Sophomore Emma Sundstrand (1:03.20) and freshman Giulia Carvalho (1:03.23) finished one-two in 100-yard breaststroke.

“It’s such a credit to the vibe they’ve created and the bond they’re creating, even this early in the season,” Kershaw said. “They’re all there for each other, all cheering for each other, racing for each other, getting to the wall for the betterment of the team.”

Freshman Jacey Hinton was second in the 50-yard freestyle (24.04) in her college debut. San Nicolas (51.82) and Hinton (52.39) had top-two finishes two events later in the 100-yard freestyle to maintain the lead.

Kershaw was pleased with his team’s camaraderie.

“That’s what we talked about going in, and that’s what we executed,” Kershaw said. “That was true whether they had great races. Even the people who weren’t happy with their races still celebrated with the team.

“Certainly, we have things to work on, but I’m very happy with the culture and foundation that is being put in place by this group of women.”

Giulia Carvalho earned her first college win in the 100-yard butterfly (55.49).

The Hurricanes capped their opening meet with a win the 400-yard freestyle relay with Hinton, San Nicolas, veteran Sydney Knapp and Cera in 3:25.67.

“Hats off to FIU, they had some great races and a lot of great detail out of their team,” Kershaw said. “It was another great battle, and we’re happy to come out on top this time. I’m looking forward to continuing this great rivalry that we have.”

One of Miami’s leading -scorers was second-year diver Emma Gullstrand, who swept the 1-meter springboard (360.83) and 3-meter springboard (327.23). Gullstrand represented Sweden at the Tokyo Olympics this past summer.

Miami next competes at the SMU Classic in Dallas, Texas from Oct. 8-9.

South Carolina Hires Jeff Poppell As Head Men’s, Women’s Swimming, Diving Coach

By Sharon Robb
COLUMBIA, S.C., April 11, 2021—After only three seasons, Jeff Poppell is leaving University of Florida for University of South Carolina.

Poppell was named University of South Carolina head men’s and women’s swimming and diving coach, pending approval of the Board of Trustees, Gamecock Athletics Director Ray Tanner announced on Friday.

Poppell was head women’s swimming and diving coach at University of Florida for the past three seasons, replacing Gregg Troy who retired from college coaching. Poppell coached several top UF swimmers including South Florida Aquatic Club’s Kathleen Golding.

“I am excited to welcome Jeff and his family to the University of South Carolina and our athletics program,” Tanner said in a statement. “Jeff brings an outstanding coaching resume and coaching philosophy that will greatly benefit our student-athletes. He knows what it takes to move our swimming and diving program to a championship level.”

Poppell replaces McGee Moody, who stepped down after 14 seasons with the Gamecocks.

Poppell has been coaching for 27 seasons including 13 seasons in the Southeastern Conference, 13 seasons at Bolles and four seasons at Gulliver Prep.

“I’m both honored and thrilled to have been named the new head swimming and diving coach at South Carolina,” Poppell said.

“On my visit earlier this week, I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the campus, the highly ranked academic programs offered, as well as the strong commitment made by the Gamecock athletic administration to help build and sustain a championship caliber program at the University of South Carolina.

“We have a lot of work ahead of us in the future however I can’t wait to get to Columbia, meet the teams, and begin this exciting new journey.”

South Carolina’s swim program is back on firm footing. In December, school president Robert Caslen had suggested that the school may have to cut some Olympic sports programs including swimming to save money during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Gamecocks are the only Division I swimming program in South Carolina after rival Clemson cut its swim teams after the 2012 season, and College of Charleston cut its program in 2015.

Poppell was also head women’s swimming and diving coach at Arkansas from 2006-12 as well as an associate head coach of the combined men’s and women’s program at Florida from 2016-18 and women’s head coach from 2018-21.

The Gators finished second in the SEC Championships in all three seasons of Poppell’s tenure at Florida and had an overall dual meet record of 18-3.

The Gators finished 17th at the 2021 NCAA Championships, the highest finish for the program since 2015. Florida had the most NCAA qualifiers of any team in the nation this season.

At Gulliver Prep, he guided the program to consecutive 2A FHSAA High School State Swimming Championship titles in girls swimming after winning the school’s first state championship in swimming in 2014. In 2015-2016, Poppell guided Gulliver Swim Club to its first Silver Medal Award, which recognizes the Top-100 swimming clubs in the United States.

Louisville Wins First Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Title By Two Points; Florida State Finishes Fifth

By Sharon Robb
GREENSBORO, N.C., February 28, 2021–For the first time in school history, the University of Louisville won a thrilling Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Swimming and Diving Championship Saturday at Greensboro Aquatic Center.

The Cardinals, coached by Arthur Albiero since 2003, broke five school records, had eight first place swims and won in the closest margin of victory in ACC history.

Louisville finished with 1,181 points and edged North Carolina State by two points in the meet. N.C. State was second with 1,179 and Virginia Tech was third with 1,085.

Florida State, with St. Andrew’s alum Izaak Bastian, finished fifth with 740 points.

Louisville needed to finish in the top three of the 400-yard freestyle relay, the final race of the meet, to win the championship. The teams were separated by 10 points going into the relay.

The Louisville relay team of Haridi Sameh, Nicolas Albiero, Michael Eastman and Tanner Cummings delivered, finishing second to N.C. State (2:48.19) with a time of 2:48.37.

“What a meet all around,” Albiero said. “I am proud to be part of this conference. It has been a crazy year for all of us. I am so proud of the guys. They found a way to be resilient.

“Plenty of things weren’t pretty but this group has so much fight. I love their passion and pride. We are who we are because of the people who came before us.

“This is such a special group. We do it the Louisville way, with heart and with not dwelling on past mistakes.”

Louisville’s score marked the highest point total in program history, bettering the previous mark of 1,178 set in 2015 during its first year in the ACC.

The win snapped N.C. State’s winning streak.

The Cardinals return to the Greensboro Aquatic Center for the NCAA Championships on March 24-27.

Vlad Polyakov, a St. Thomas Aquinas and Coral Springs Swim Club alum, has been a member of the Louisville coaching staff and men’s recruiting coordinator since September 2012. He is a three-time Olympian and world champion for Kazakhstan and NCAA champion for Alabama, where Albiero was on the swim coaching staff at the time.

In early January, Albiero was forced to watch his team’s Missouri meet on his home computer because of COVID-19 contact tracing protocols.

Notre Dame’s Jack Hoagland was named the Most Valuable Swimmer after becoming the first men’s swimmer since 2018 to win three individual events. Hoagland won the 500-yard freestyle, 400-yard individual medley and 1,650-yard freestyle.

North Carolina’s Anton Down-Jenkins was voted the Most Valuable Diver last week after winning the 1-meter and 3-meter competitions.

University of Miami swept the podium for the men’s platform diving competition. The Hurricanes’ Zach Cooper won the event after taking silver in 2020 with a score of 421.50, extending the Hurricanes’ streak to five straight titles in the event. Max Flory (416.05) and Brodie Scapens (380.70) rounded out the top three.
