WRITTEN BY SHARON ROBB

Stephanie Campo and Marco Hosfeld of the South Florida Aquatic Club took another step in the right direction Friday night at the USA Swimming Southern Zone Championships.

Campo and Hosfeld swam career-best times in their respective events and were SOFLO’s top finishers on Day Four at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center in Atlanta.

Hosfeld had two time drops in the boys’ 13-14 400-meter freestyle to finish fifth against a fast field.

Hosfeld bettered his previous best of 4:19.62 in morning prelims in 4:15.80, the sixth fastest time, and came back in finals to swim faster in 4:13.85.

“That’s moving,” said SOFLO head coach Michael Lohberg. “That was awesome. His splits were great. He does things well with instinct.”

Campo, 12, swam back-to-back career-bests to finish ninth in the girls’ 11-12 100-meter freestyle. She bettered her previous best of 1:03.12 in morning prelims in 1:03.10 and came back to swim faster in finals in 1:02.50.

Campo also led off the Florida Gold Coast’s 11-12 200-meter medley relay that finished sixth in 2:10.16. Other relay members were Carlotta Verita, 12, Isabela Reyes-Capo, 12, and Rose Smiddy, 11.

Campo was also 14th in the girls’ 11-12 100-meter backstroke in 1:12.85, just off her 1:12.21 career-best.

Emma Lincoln, 14, just missed making her second championship final in two days. Lincoln finished 11th and was first alternate in the 400-meter freestyle in a career-best time of 4:39.90. Her previous best was 4:49.08.
