SOFLO Boys Relay, Valerie Vank Break Meet Records; Beckwith Returns To Racing On Day Two Of TYR SOFLO Open


By Sharon Robb

PEMBROKE PINES, February 3, 2018–South Florida Aquatic Club boys relay team and Valerie Vank broke meet records to highlight action on Day Two of the TYR SOFLO Open Saturday at Academic Village Pool.

The 13-and-over A relay of Lance Lesage, 15, Samuel Quintero, 17, Juan Serna, 16, and Heath Brames, 17, won the 200-yard medley relay in 1:43.69, breaking the 2014 meet record of 1:44.51 set by Titan Aquatics (Brandon Parkinson, Aleks Kuzjomkin, Anton Kuzjomkin, Sammy McGinnis)

Valerie Vank, 12, won the 11-12 50-yard breaststroke in a meet record 32.48. She broke teammate Katrina Del Vecchio’s 2016 record of 33.34. Vank also won the 50-yard freestyle in a best time 27.01.

At 40, Harvey Beckwith, the oldest swimmer in the meet, came out of retirement after 12 years and was impressive on his first day in a competition against swimmers more than half his age.

The Coral Springs Swim Club swimmer won the 50-yard breaststroke in a best time 27.48, shaving 0.42 off his seed time. He was also third in the 50-yard freestyle in 23.09.

Beckwith will swim the 100-yard breaststroke, where he is seeded second, and 100-yard freestyle, where he is seeded seventh, on Sunday.

“I decided let’s have a little fun in 2018,” Beckwith said. “It’s been a lot of adjusting and learning. The body changes after so many years and I’m learning to adapt to what I can and can’t do. It’s a little bit of trial and error. A lot of work, but a lot of fun at the same time.”

After two days of competition, South Florida Aquatic Club has already clinched the combined (1,803.5), girls (811) and boys (992.5) team titles.

The three-day meet concludes Sunday with two sessions at 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The Florida Gold Coast teams entered in the timed finals meet are AquaKids Sharks, Atlantis, Bob Karl Swim Club, City of Miami Parks, Coral Springs Swim Club, Flying Fish Swim Club, Hialeah Swim Club, Miami Swimming, Plantation Swim Team, Shelton Doral and YMCA of South Florida.

TYR is the official outfitter for South Florida Aquatic Club. The club sponsor is a USA manufacturer of recreational and competitive swimwear, caps, goggles, triathlon gear and accessories and one of the nation’s top companies.
