Rest In Peace Nicholas Dworet, You Will Be Forever Missed


By Sharon Robb

PARKLAND, February 15, 2018—-The swimming community is saddened beyond belief by the senseless death of Nicholas Dworet.

The swimmer was one of 17 killed during one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings Wednesday at his beloved high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

Dworet, 17, a high school and club swimmer in the Florida Gold Coast and water polo player, was headed to the University of Indianapolis on an academic scholarship this fall. The program is ranked in the top five of NCAA Division II swimming.

Dworet was a member of TS Aquatics and before that Coral Springs Swim Club. Dworet earned second team All-County honors in the freestyle and consistently ranked among the county’s top swimmers in the honor roll.

In the past 18 months since he joined TS Aquatics, he turned his life around for the better. He focused on his academics and training and improved from a middle-of-the-pack swimmer according to TS Aquatics Coach Andre Bailey.

Dworet found purpose and focus and was ready to start the next chapter of his academic and swimming career, Bailey said. Bailey said he was making all the right choices. Dworet of Swedish descent, had even hoped to earn a spot on the Swedish national swim team in the future.

“I’m telling you from the bottom of my heart, he just took his life in his hands… he chiseled and molded his life,” Bailey told the Indianapolis Star. “This kid went from being listless and going through the motions to planning ahead and organizing his life. He was an all-around great kid. Everybody loved him.”

Dworet was team captain on TS Aquatics and known as “swim daddy.” He took the younger swimmers under his wing and helped to motivate them at practice.

“This is a kid who went from middle-of-the-pack last year to being just lights out,” Bailey said. “He helped put our program on the map.”

Bailey was with Dworet’s family when they got the notification of his death Thursday morning. He was one of the first victims to be identified after his family shared his photo on social media.

“Nicholas was a happy young man who embodied the values of our program,” TS Aquatics posted. “He was an amazing person as well as a great swimmer. A young man who had changed his life recently and was on a major upswing in his life.

“Nick, you have touched everyone on TS Aquatics in one way or another, whether it was your smile, your jokes, or your very positive attitude. You will be forever missed.”

Swimmers, coaches and friends have been sharing their condolences on social media around the U.S.

Said TS Aquatics Coach Marty Grady: “He was not only a good swimmer but a good person. A happy young man. Nick, you have touched everyone on the team in one way or another, you will be very missed.”

Said one tweet, “Once a greyhound, always a greyhound. Nicholas Dworet would have been with us at UIndy this fall, and we’ll make sure that’s never forgotten.”

“Heaven has gained an angel today,” said another tweet. “We love you Nick.”

Said a friend on Facebook, “Please pray for the family and friends of Nicholas Dworet. Nick was a hero, thinking of his younger brother before himself through all that evil. May God bless him and the people who loved him.”

At St. Thomas Aquinas High School during Thursday morning prayer service, 17 white balloons were released in honor of those who lost their lives.

UIndy President Robert L. Manuel and swim coach Jason Hite have been in contact with the Dworet family and will continue to offer support.

“Nick’s death is a reminder that we are connected to the larger world, and when tragedy hits in places around the world, it often times affects us at home,” Manuel said in a statement emailed to the Indianapolis Star.

Swim parent Steven Meyer, whose son and daughter swim at TS Aquatics, also posted a touching dedication on Facebook:

“Nick was a great kid. A long-time teammate of our children and an all-around great kid from a great family. We are at a loss for words right now. Our son always looked up to Nick at Coral Springs and also TS Aquatics. Kiddo you will be missed, such a devastating senseless loss. So many friends and families in this community are devastated.

“As parents, we cannot imagine what your family is going through right now,” Meyer wrote. “Thank you for always pushing and supporting Alexander. Whether in public or private, he will always admire and look up to you.”

One friend wrote a final heart wrenching tribute on Instagram to Dworet: “We had class together earlier in the day. ‘See you tomorrow,’ you said as you walked out. But I won’t see you tomorrow, or next week, or next month. We walked into kindergarten together, so knowing that you won’t be walking across the stage at graduation with me in a few months is devastating and heartbreaking.”

A Go Fund Me page has been started. The Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund has already raised $382,841 (by 6,790 people in six hours) of the $450,000 goal that will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families.

Three SOFLO Swimmers Earn Broward All-County First Team Honors


By Sharon Robb

December 26, 2017—-For the second year in a row, South Florida Aquatic Club had three of its high school swimmers earn 2017 Broward All-County first team honors.

Selected by the Sun-Sentinel and announced last week, Kathleen Golding of Cooper City, Kelley Heron of Pembroke Pines Charter and Juan Diaz of Cypress Bay earned first team honors.

Golding, a junior and University of Florida commit, was named to the first team for the third consecutive year. Golding was selected in the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard freestyle.

Golding is a three-time state champion in the 200-yard individual medley with a best time of 1:59.72. She was a state runner-up in the 100-yard freestyle in 49.79. She was a member of the seventh place 200-yard medley relay team making its state meet debut.

Golding is joined by her high school coach Jill Ankney for the first time. The Cowboys finished 7-1 and were district and region runners-up. The Cowboys were eighth at the state meet with 10 swimmers and two divers.

Heron, a senior and Michigan State commit, was named first team for the second straight year in the 100-yard backstroke. The MVP leaves behind two high school records in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:05.22 and 100-yard backstroke in 56.33.

Diaz made first team on the 400-yard freestyle relay with teammates Diego Machado, Luis Bucaro and Diego Homes with a season-best 3:11.47. Diaz was also among the county’s Top 10 in the 100-yard backstroke and 200-yard freestyle.

Diaz’ high school coach John Spire was named Boys Coach of the Year. The Lightning won BCAA, district and region boys team titles and was 11th at state.

Junior Ricardo Roche of Pembroke Pines Charter and freshman Paige Lane of Cypress Bay earned second team honors. Roche was selected for the 500-yard freestyle and Lane, making her high school debut, was picked in the 200-yard freestyle.

Earning Honorable Mention honors were CJ Kopecki and Kevin Porto of American Heritage Plantation; Heath Brames of Cooper City; Rafael Rodriguez of Pembroke Pines Charter; Juan Serna of West Broward; Sam Quintero of Sagemont; Molly Golding of Cooper City; and Sarah Acevedo of Everglades.

Patrick Groters of NSU University School and Aruba was named the Boys Swimmer of the Year. The University of Denver commit won a state title in the 100-yard backstroke and was state runner-up in the 200-yard individual medley.

Westminster Academy senior and University of Virginia commit Jessica Nava was named Girls Swimmer of the Year for the second consecutive year. She defended her title in the 100-yard butterfly in a state record 53.39 and won the 100-yard backstroke in 55.10

It was one of SOFLO’s finest showings on an all-county team since the program’s inception. Only Broward County swimmers were eligible. The Miami Herald is expected to announce its Broward and Dade all-county teams in January.

Doral Academy, Pembroke Pines Charter Finish Among Top Five Boys Teams At FHSAA State 3A Meet


By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 11, 2017—Doral Academy and Pembroke Pines Charter, coached by two South Florida Aquatic Club age group coaches, finished among the top five boys teams Saturday night at the FHSAA State 3A Swimming and Diving Championships.

On a rainy and windy night at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center, Doral Academy Firebirds finished runner-up with 157 points behind state champion Tallahassee Chiles with 320.

It was Chiles second straight title. Chiles returned depth and talent and did not miss any time out of the pool because of Hurricane Irma.

Pembroke Pines Charter’s boys team was fourth with 135 points, the program’s highest finish in school history.

The Doral Firebirds, buoyed by depth, took a first, second and third in the boys relays.

Doral won the 400-yard freestyle relay in 3:08.83 with Adrian Aguilar, Nestor Montero, Vittorio Parravano and Aaron Rodriguez.

Doral was second behind Chiles in the 200-yard freestyle relay in 1:26.74 with Rodriguez, Parravano, David Montana and Aguilar.

The Firebirds opened the meet with a third place in the 200-yard medley relay behind Chiles and Naples in 1:36.76 with Montero, Santiago Gomez, Aguilar and Rodriguez.

Aguilar also placed second in the 100-yard butterfly in 50.10 behind Chiles’ Ryland Sun in 48.55.

Pembroke Pines Charter was led by Andres Lares, third in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:31.18 and third in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:41.17. It was his best finish at a state meet.

Pembroke Pines Charter’s 400-yard freestyle relay was fifth in 3:14.16 with Ricardo Roche, Sebastian Sevilla, Rafael Rodriguez and Lares. The Jaguars were also sixth in the 200-yard medley relay in 1:38.28 with Lares, Roche, Rodriguez and Casey Moya.

Rodriguez and Roche also finished among the top eight in individual events. Rodriguez, a sophomore, was sixth in the 100-yard butterfly in 51.50 and seventh in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:43.03. Roche, a senior, was seventh in the 200-yard individuaol medley in 1:54.16 and eighth in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:42.01.

The girls teams were less fortunate. Doral placed 13th with 68 points among a field of 48 teams. Pembroke Pines Charter tied for 25th with 27 points.

Creekside won the girls team title with 237 points.

Pembroke Pines Charter senior Kelley Heron was fifth in the 100-yard backstroke in 58.43 and sixth in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:08.17.

Cooper City’s Kathleen Golding Three-Peats, Wins State Title At FHSAA State 4A Meet


By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 10, 2017—-In front of a packed house at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center on an electrifying Friday night, Kathleen Golding won another state title at the FHSAA State 4A Swimming and Diving Championships.

The Cooper City junior defended her title in the 200-yard individual medley in an automatic All-American time of 1:59.72, the only swimmer to crack 2 minutes in the field. It was her third consecutive state title in the challenging event.

“I had confidence since I had won it twice before,” Golding said. “I’m glad I did well and had a better time that was under two minutes.”

Golding was the only girl or boy swimmer from Broward County to capture a state title. She was also second in the 100-yard freestyle in a close race with Micayla Cronk of Flagler Palm Coast, 49.58-49.79. It was the first time she swam the 100 freestyle at state. In the past two state meets, her second event was the 100 butterfly.

Golding was a member of the Cowboys’ seventh place 200-yard medley relay that finished in 1:49.11 with teammates Solana Capalbo, Molly Golding and Barbara Bernal. She also anchored the tenth place 200-yard freestyle relay.

Cooper City was the top Broward girls team finisher placing eighth with 93 points. The next Broward girls finisher was Cypress Bay, 19th with 32 points. Cypress Bay was the top boys team, placing 11th with 79 points.

Jennifer Rodriguez of Hialeah Gardens had a Top 10 finish placing ninth in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:06.57.

Cypress Bay freshman Paige Lane was 11th in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:53.98 and 12th in the 100-yard freestyle in 52.97. Another freshman, Molly Golding of Cooper City was tenth in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:06.84.

Cooper City’s Heath Brames, making his first state meet appearance, was tenth in the 100-yard freestyle in 47.38. Brames also led off the Cowboys’ 200-yard freestyle relay that was ninth in 1:29.59 with teammates Ivan Capalbo, Mark Zhang and Robert Wilson.

Juan Diaz of Cypress Bay was 12th in the 100-yard backstroke in 53.56.

Park Vista senior Kyle DiMatteo ended his high school career with two state titles in the 50-yard freestyle in 20.42 and 100-yard freestyle in 44.45. The high school All-American is headed to Florida State next fall.

Jupiter’s Will Lefebre won the 1-meter diving title with 505.75 points.

Mandarin senior Keegan Fluharty, seeded second, won the girls diving title with 470.30. She is the first northeast Florida diver to win a state girls title since 2013 after placing sixth, sixth and fifth the past three seasons.

Gainesville Buchholz won the girls team title with 360.5 points, ahead of Tampa Plant with 273. Sarasota Riverview won the boys title with 278.5 points. Laker Brantley was second with 198.

Bolles Sweeps FHSAA State 1A Titles, Makes History; Quintero Swims Best Times


By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 8, 2017—Jacksonville Bolles made a little more history Saturday night at the FHSAA State 1A Swimming and Diving Championships at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Center.

Bolles won a national record 30th consecutive boys team title surpassing the national record of 29 held by Punahou of Hawaii (from 1958 to 1986). The girls won their 27th state title without winning an event.

Bolles boys won by more than 100 points with 350. The girls won with 333.5 points. Pine Crest was the top Broward finisher, placing second among girls with 288 and fourth among boys teams with 187 points.

Trinity Prep also made history. Trinity Prep became the first 1A team other than Bolles to win both the boys 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. Bolles had won the 400 relay 29 years in a row. Trinity Prep edged Bolles, 3:03.03-3:04.10. It was also only the third time since 1990 Bolles did not win the 200 relay.

“It was huge, very historic,” Trinity Prep coach Rocco Aceto told the Orlando Sentinel. “My phone lit up like a Christmas tree with coaches calling from all over the country.”

Ariel Spektor led Bolles with two individual wins in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:47.25 and 100-yard butterfly in 48.20. He also led the winning 200-yard medley relay.

Despite Bolles dominance among teams, there were several outstanding swims by Broward County athletes.

Westminster Academy senior Jessica Nava defended her 100-yard butterfly title with a state record performance in 53.39, an automatic All-American time. She broke her own record of 53.46 set last year. She also won the 100-yard backstroke in 55.10.

Pine Crest sophomore Andrea Santander won the 200-yard freestyle in an automatic All-American time of 1:47.02. She was also second in the 100-yard freestyle in 49.99.

Pine Crest won the 400-yard freestyle relay in an automatic All-American time of 3:27.85 with Santander, Annabella Lyn, Marissa Brannan and Alexandra Meszaros.

NSU University School senior Patrick Groters ended his high school career in style winning the 100-yard backstroke in 50.23. He was second in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:49.02. Longtime teammate Daniel Jacobs, also a senior, was second in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:28.38 and third in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:39.37.

Pine Crest senior Nico Ferrara was third in the 100-yard freestyle in 45.60 and fourth in the 50-yard freestyle in 20.91.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Sam Quintero, at age 12 one of the youngest swimmers in the field, swam lifetime-bests in two events for Sagemont. Quintero was 14th in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:59.24. He was also 14th in the 100-yard breaststroke in 59.96. He also swam the breatstroke leg of the 200-yard medley relay that finished 12th in 1:42.32 with teammates Luis Villanueva, Samuel Cesin-Salazar and Cameron Brown.

Julia Podkoscielny of Pine Crest made her state meet debut and finished 24th in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:16.76 and 22nd in the 100-yard backstroke in a lifetime-best time 1:00.79. The seventh grader was the only middle schooler in the girls’ field.

Broward County swept the 1-meter diving titles. Sophomore Maia Goldstein of NSU University School won her second girls title with 486.45 points.

Pine Crest eighth grader Kevin Mendez, who overcame a broken toe this season, defended his title in the boys competition with 537 points.
