It’s Show Time For Pine Crest Panthers At State Meet After Sweeping Region 4-2A Titles


By SHARON ROBB

WEST PALM BEACH, November 5, 2019–Now that Pine Crest has pretty much steamrolled the competition during the regular and post-season district and region meets in their 2A season debut, the Panthers will be tested one last time Friday at the FHSAA Swimming and Diving State 2A Championships at Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center.

After sweeping the Region 4-2A girls and boys team titles last week, the Panthers will go to state as favorites. It was the girls’ 15th region title and 11th for the boys.

Last season in the 1A state competition, the girls finished second for the third consecutive year and boys finished fifth behind perennial powerhouse Jacksonville Bolles.

The girls last won a state team title in 1990 and boys in 1987. Pine Crest will have to contend with six-time defending girls champion Gulliver Prep, which the Panthers have already throttled, and two-time defending state boys champion Tampa Jesuit.

Last week Pine Crest topped a field of 19 girls to win the Region 4-2A title with 637 points at Lake Lytal Aquatic Complex. Gulliver Prep was second with 262.

The Panthers one-two punch of Andrea Santander and Julia Podkoscielny were double winners.

Santander won the 200-yard freestyle and 100-yard freestyle in All-American consideration times. She won the 200 in 1:50.21 and 100 in 50.88. In last year’s state meet, Santander won the 100 freestyle in 49.96 and was second in the 200 individual medley in 2:01.34, both best times.

Podkoscielny won region titles in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:04.73 and 100-yard backstroke in 56.16. Last year as an eighth grader, she was seventh in the 100 backstroke in 57.14 at the state meet.

The Panthers swept all three girls relays and won all but one individual event at regions.

The boys team bested a field of 21 teams to win with 349 points. Gulliver Prep was second with 292.

There was more parity in the boys region competition. Pine Crest won the 200-yard medley and 400-yard freestyle relays. Joshua Hanks and Jimmy Hart were individual winners.

Raphael Santos of Pompano Beach and Daniel Escobar of American Heritage Plantation were the only other individual Broward winners.

In the 1-meter diving competition, Kaylee Greenberg of Pine Crest won the girls title with 413.15 points. Jonathan Geraghty of Lincoln Park won the boys title with 523.80. Three-time defending state champion Kevin Mendez was third with 487.35.

Pine Crest Captures Combined, Girls Team Titles, Bolles Wins Boys Title At 56th Woodson Invitational


By Sharon Robb

FORT LAUDERDALE, September 29, 2019–For the second year in a row, the Pine Crest Panthers won the combined and girls team titles Saturday at the 56th annual Woodson Invitational.

The Panthers won the nation’s oldest high school invitational with 522 points in the combined team standings and 312 in the girls competition. Bolles won the boys title with 244 points, ahead of Pine Crest with 210.

It was one of the most competitive meets in Woodson history attracting some of the state’s fastest swimmers.

Pine Crest freshman Julia Podkoscielny, 15, won the Ann Marshall best female performer after winning the 200-yard individual medley in a season-best 2:00.40 and 100-yard backstroke in 55.54. She was also a member of the winning 200-yard medley and 400-yard freestyle relays.

Joshua Zuchowski, 15, of King’s Academy was named the Andy Coan best male performer. He won the 100-yard butterfly in 49.51 and 100-yard backstroke in 49.40.

Marshall and Coan were highly-decorated Pine Crest swimmers before going on to make their mark on the national and international stage.

Pine Crest opened the meet with a victory in the 200-yard medley relay in a season-best 1:45.07 with Podkoscielny, Sara Lin, Esther Lin and Rachel Botting. The winning time already improved the Panthers’ 2018 season-best 1:45.29.

The Panthers ended up sweeping all three girls relays.

Andrea Santander was also a double winner for the Panthers. She won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:49.40 and 100-yard freestyle in 50.43, both season-best times. She was also a member of the winning 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays.

There were no other Broward champions in the girls’ swimming competition. Bolles, Winter Park and St. Andrew’s won the remaining five individual events.

In an exciting girls’ 1-meter diving competition, Bolles’ Laurel Coppedge edged Pine Crest’s Kaylee Greenberg, 396.55-393.45. Calvary Christian’s Sophia Souza was third in 390.45.

Defending state champion Kevin Mendez won the boys’ diving with 511.90 points.

Jacksonville Bolles Sweeps Pine Crest In Annual Dual Meet; Next Up: 56th Annual Woodson Invitational On Saturday


By Sharon Robb

FORT LAUDERDALE, September 27, 2019—Pine Crest may have suffered its first losses of the season, but getting to race against defending state champion Jacksonville Bolles was priceless.

Pine Crest gave Bolles, the defending state 1A champion, everything it could handle before the girls lost, 111-75, and boys dropped a 100-83 decision.

Pine Crest is now 7-1 going into Saturday’s 56th annual Woodson Invitational at the host Panthers’ pool. The dual meet was not only a good tuneup for Woodson, but a great mid-season gauge for the Panthers, competing at the Class 2A level this season.

The girls’ 200-yard medley relay and 200-yard freestyle relays were two of the most exciting of the meet. Bolles edged Pine Crest in the 200-yard medley relay, 1:46.44-1:46.89. In the 200-yard freestyle relay, it was Pine Crest that won a close one, 1:37.18-1:37.54 with Rachel Botting, Isabella Chambers, Riley Botting and Andrea Santander.

Santander and Julia Podkoscielny were double winners for the Panthers.

Podkoscielny won the 200-yard individual medley in a best time 2:03.47, bettering her previous best of 2:05.01. She also won the 100-yard backstroke in 56.83.

Santander won the 100-yard freestyle in 51.64 outsprinting Bolles’ Faith Satianchokwisan in 51.91. She also won the 200-yard freestyle in 1:53.11.

Sara Lin won the 100-yard breaststroke in a best time 1:04.96, bettering her previous best of 1:05.65.

The boys’ relays were just as exciting as the girls.

In the 200-yard medley relay, Pine Crest edged Bolles, 1:36.00-1:36.63 with Elvis Kotikovski, Joshua Hanks, Will Taner and Jimmy Hart.

In the 200-yard freestyle relay, Pine Crest won an exciting race in 1:27.00-1:27.78 with Joshua Hanks, Jimmy Hart, Elvis Kotikovski and Will Taner.

Joshua Hanks was a double winner for the boys team. He won the 200-yard individual medley in 1:54.89 and 100-yard breaststroke in 58.44.

Hart won the 100-yard freestyle in a best time 47.72 bettering his previous best of 48.28. Will Taner and Elvis Kotikovski were individual winners.

Pine Crest swept the 1-meter diving events with Kaylee Greenberg and defending state champion Kevin Mendez. The Panther boys swept the top three places.

On Saturday, Pine Crest and Bolles head the field for the prestigious 56th annual Woodson Invitational. Last year Pine Crest won the combined and girls team titles and broke four meet records.

Among other teams competing in the day-long meet are Miami Belen, Gulliver Prep, Winter Park, American Heritage Plantation, Somerset, King’s Academy, Calvary Christian and NSU University School.
