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.
