Florida High School Activities Association Postpones All Athletic Spring Events


By Sharon Robb

March 19, 2020—The Florida High School Activities Association, the state’s governing body for all high school sports, has postponed all athletic events indefinitely.

While most athletic venues including swimming pools have been closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, the official announcement came after Governor Ron DeSantis announced that schools would remain closed until at least April 15.

Standardized testing was also cancelled for the school year. Online learning is set to begin on March 30.

The FHSAA’s official statement said:

“In response to Governor DeSantis’ closure of Florida Schools through April 15th, and following the Florida Department of Education Guidance Memorandum from March 17, 2020, the FHSAA has made the decision to postpone all scheduled FHSAA meetings, conferences and athletic events until further notice.

“Pending schools are back in session and afforded the opportunity to resume activities after April 15th, by Federal, State and Local authorities, the FHSAA will follow the recommendations and guidance available to us at that time regarding the continuance of all FHSAA spring sports and other planned meetings and conferences.”

The suspension of high school sports in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade started Monday.

With nine different sports including water polo, the spring season is the busiest for the FHSAA.

DeSantis said on Tuesday parents have the option to hold students back a grade after this school year, but the FHSAA added that students would not gain additional athletic eligibility. FHSAA bylaws state that students have only eight consecutive semesters of eligibility.

By Sharon Robb

November 2, 2017—It’s show time for high school swimmers whose high school season ends this weekend at the FHSAA State 1A and 2A Swimming and Diving Championships in Stuart.

The 2A meet, featuring American Heritage Plantation, is Friday and 1A Meet, featuring the perennial battle between defending champion Jacksonville Bolles and Pine Crest, is Saturday.

While the Region 3A and 4A qualifying meets are also being this week for next weekend’s state competition, swimmers who overcame missed workouts and meets because of Hurricane Irma, have recovered to qualify for the ultimate meet in high school swimming. The top 24 swimmers from the combined regions around the state qualified.

The 2A meet is Friday at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center. Swimming prelims are 9 a.m. and finals begin 5:30 p.m. The girls diving begins 9 a.m. and boys diving at 1:30 p.m. There is a live webcast at NFHS Network for a fee.

In the 2A competition, Gulliver Prep, with both depth and talent, is favored to defend its girls and boys state titles. Gulliver Prep has strength in all three boys and girls relays where points make the difference.

The boys are led by top seeds Miguel Cancel in the 100-yard freestyle and Trahern Gribble in the 100-yard butterfly. The girls are led by Emily Cordovi, a junior, who is top seed in the 100-yard butterfly with an All-American time of 54.47 and 100-yard backstroke, and top seed Marcella Ruppert-Gomez in the 500-yard freestyle.

American Heritage Plantation is led by fifth seed CJ Kopecki in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:44.89. Kopecki was the only boy swimmer to capture a region title in last weeks’ meet. He is seeded eleventh in the 100-yard butterfly in 53.01. Kopecki, a senior and top club swimmer at South Florida Aquatic Club, is competing in his final state meet.

Teammate Kevin Porto, also a senior, is seeded 12th in the 50-yard freestyle in 22.36 and 11th in the 100-yard freestyle in 48.77.

Patriots teammate and freshman Nicolas Rossi had an outstanding season and is seeded 16th in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:57.84. Rossi is one of three freshmen in the distance field. Teammate Joseph Lee, also a freshman, is seeded 22nd in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:05.22.

The Patriots’ girls team is led by top seed and senior defending champion Catharine Cooper in the 50-yard freestyle in 23.88. She is seeded third in the 100-yard freestyle in 53.07. Junior teammate Thea Mckenna is seeded 18th in the 200-yard individual medley. Junior Annita Huang is competing on the freestyle relays.

Somerset Academy’s Katrina Del Vecchio is seeded eleventh in the 50-yard freestyle in 25.12. She is also seeded 18th in the 100-yard butterfly in 1:00.56. Also competing are Somerset teammate Elise Larin in the 100-yard breaststroke and Juan Pineda of Mater Academy in the 100-yard breaststroke.

Cardinal Gibbons’ Hudson Coldren is top seed and the favorite in the boys 1-meter diving with a county-leading 519.10 points.

In Saturday’s Class 1A competition, the challenge remains the same after more than two decades, how to beat Bolles that usually has enough depth and talent to field three competitive teams. The boys are favored to win their 30th consecutive title and girls team its 27th state title.

There is parity in the individual competition with NSU University’s dynamic duo of Patrick Groters and Daniel Jacobs. NSU University School’s Maia Goldstein is a favorite in the girls diving.

Sagemont senior Samuel Quintero is seeded eleventh in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:00.52 and 14th in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:59.75. Sagemont teammates Luis Villanueva will swim the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard butterfly.

SOFLO’s Kathleen Golding Repeats As State Champion For Cooper City


By Sharon Robb

November 5, 2016—Cooper City High School sophomore Kathleen Golding defended her title Saturday night at the FHSAA Class 4A Swimming and Diving Championships at Sailfish Splash Waterpark in Stuart.

The South Florida Aquatic Club swimmer won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:00.34, an automatic All-American time. She also finished the 2016 high school season undefeated in her specialty event.

Golding earned the top seed in morning prelims in 2:00.64, a 3.83 drop in time from her seed time. Golding also placed fourth in the 100-yard butterfly in a best time 54.63, after going 55.11 in prelims, dropping 1.39 off her seed time.

“I really wanted to break 2 minutes in the IM,” Golding said. “I wasn’t fully happy with my race but I went as fast as I could.

“I won and I am happy with that but my goal was to go under 2 minutes. I am not really sure where it slipped away but my back to breast turn wasn’t very good.

Golding also competed in the 200-yard medley relay which finished 11th in 1:51.33 with teammates Solana Capalbo, SOFLO’s Natasha Testa and Barbara Bernal and finished the meet on the 400-yard freestyle relay that finished 15th in 3:42.53 with the same trio of swimmers.

“I wanted to swim the relays, the team comes first,” Golding said. “I love my teammates. I never swim well by myself. They are a lot of fun and keep me laughing.”

The Cowboys finished 15th with 52 points among a field of 46 teams. It was the best finish by a South Florida team.

“In the fly I wanted to go best time which I did and I was happy with that,” Golding said. “There were some really fast swimmers in that race.”

The 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier now has two state meets in the books and is looking forward to competing at junior nationals.

“I knew what to expect since this was my second state meet,” Golding said. “I was a little bit more prepared. Obviously, coming off Olympic Trials was a real confidence-booster.

“I am happy with both my state meets. This meet I swam faster and that makes this one better. In both of them I went out and swam as fast as I could.”

SOFLO teammate Jessica Rodriguez of Hialeah Gardens was seventh in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:06.68 after going 1:06.55 in prelims. Teammate Jennifer Rodriguez was 16th in the breaststroke in 1:08.28.

Senior Logan Downey of South Plantation won his fourth consecutive diving title to finish his high school career undefeated in state competition. Downey finished with 493.60 points.

Buchholz defended its title winning the girls team title with 276 points. Sarasota Riverview also repeated as state champions capturing the boys team title with 276 points. Cypress Bay was the top local team placing seventh with 91 points.

SOFLO’s Colon, Mila, Parada Qualify For State 2A Meet


WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

November 4, 2012

With so many high quality swimmers, the Region 4-2A Swimming and Diving Championships at Florida Gulf Coast University felt more like a state meet than a region meet.

Archbishop McCarthy and Pembroke Pines Charter did manage to qualify its top boys swimmers for the FHSAA State 2A Swimming and Diving Championships on Thursday at the Orlando YMCA Aquatic Center.

Pembroke Pines Charter senior Ivan Parada leads the SOFLO contingent. Parada is seeded 13th in the 100-yard freestyle in 48.93 and 22nd in the 200-yard backstroke in 56.29.

Archbishop McCarthy senior Ryan Hall will return to state in one individual event and two relays. Hall qualified in the 100-yard freestyle and is seeded 18th in 49.22.

Mavericks teammate Kry Nichlany, a junior who trains with the Davie Nadadores, qualified in the 100-yard butterfly and is seeded 16th in 53.60.

Archbishop McCarthy also qualified its 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. The 200 free relay is seeded 16h in 1:31.49 with Matthew Mila, JoJo Perez, Nichlany and Hall.

The 400 free relay is seeded 13th in 3:19.91 with the same foursome.

SOFLO’s Jordan Colon, a sophomore at Mater Academy, qualified for his first state meet in the 100-yard breaststroke. He is seeded 17th for states with a best time of 1:02.55.

Pembroke Pines Charter and Archbishop McCarthy boys teams had their 200-yard medley relay teams disqualified for early take-off and stroke infraction.

Riviera Beach Suncoast won the girls team title with 343 points, an 18-point margin over runner-up Naples Gulf Coast.

Boys powerhouse Miami Belen Jesuit won the boys team title by nearly 100 points with 353 points ahead of Gulf Coast with 258.

For Belen, senior Julian Ballestas won the 100 freestyle (46.17) and was on two winning relays. Junior Boleck De Pawlikowski won the 100 backstroke (52.70) and was on two winning relays. Belen Jesuit also swept the 200 medley relay (1:38.92), 200 freestyle relay (1:28.52) and 400 freestyle relay (3:13.36).

Senior Hannah Vandersluis of Suncoast won the 200 individual medley (2:07.84) and 100 breaststroke (1:06.88). Her little sister, Francesca, a freshman, was second in the 100 breaststroke in 1:08.97.

Senior Daniela Sorgente of Dreyfoos School of the Arts won the girls diving title with 466.45 points.

Senior Lauren Suarez of Forest Hill won the 100-yard freestyle (52.72). Sisters Lauren, Kristen and Julie Suarez won the 200 freestyle relay (1:41.58) and are the first sister trio to qualify on the same relay for the state meet.
