SOFLO has 160 swimmers (89 boys and 71 girls) competing in 867 individual events.

Up-and-coming swimmers will compete in the IMR (Ready) Challenge. All sessions are timed finals.

The IMX (Xtreme) Challenge is the next step-up from the IMR competition. It includes a series of five or six events. Once swimmers complete the IMX program they can also see where their score ranks nationally, among their local LSC and own swim club.

In addition to host SOFLO, other Florida Gold Coast teams competing are Gulliver Swim Club, Plantation Swim Team, SwimFast, Miami Country Day Aquatics, Ransom Everglades, Metro Aquatics, Boca Raton Swim Team, Southern Wahoos Aquatic Team, City of Miami Parks and PAQ.

By Sharon Robb
PEMBROKE PINES, May 30, 2021—South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers rose to the occasion at the SoFlo Memorial Day Intrasquad Long Course Challenge at Academic Village Pool.

After the third and final day of competition on Sunday, SOFLO swimmers totaled a one-meet record 131 new long course Junior Olympic qualifying cut times.

After nearly two years of not being able to swim long course meets because of the COVID-19 pandemic, swimmers more than made up for lost time and looked good doing it.

In the girls’ competition, Jemma Baldwin, Elise Dinehart, Jenesys Amores and Nat Gembicki were double winners.

Baldwin, 10, won the 50-meter freestyle in a best time 34.01, dropping 3.76 and 200-meter freestyle, also a best time 2:42.97, dropping an impressive 22.03.

Dinehart, 12, won the 50-meter breaststroke in a best time 41.50, dropping 5.06 and 200-meter freestyle, another best time in 2:27.17 and whopping 22.72-second time drop. She posted JO cuts in the 400 freestyle, 100 freestyle, 100 breaststroke, 200 IM, 50 breaststroke, 50 freestyle and 200 freestyle.

Gembicki, 16, won the 50-meter freestyle in 29.65 and 200-meter freestyle in 2:18.90.

In the boys’ competition, Jose Rincon, Giorgio Rusconi, Javier Colmenares and Hashan Ekanayake were double winners.

Rincon, 12, won the 50-meter freestyle in a best time 30.46, dropping 6.72 and 100-meter butterfly in 1:13.77. He posted new JO cuts in the 400 freestyle, 50 butterfly, 50 backstroke, 100 freestyle in addition to the 50 freestyle and 100 butterfly.

Rusconi, 14, won the 50-meter breaststroke in 34.80 and 200-meter breaststroke in 2:50.25. He had new JO cuts in the 100 breaststroke and 200 breaststroke.

Colmenares, 14, won the 50-meter freestyle in a best time 25.96, dropping 4.60 and 100-meter butterfly in a best time 1:00.12, dropping 3.90. He had a new JO cut in the 50 freestyle.

The three-day meet was part of a holiday doubleheader at Academic Village Pool. It gave 114 SOFLO swimmers (64 boys and 50 girls) the opportunity to race long course, fine tune, improve times and make qualifying cuts for various meets.

Between sessions of the two meets, the always-entertaining SOFLO alum and coaches Jack Davies and Jessica Rodriguez came out of retirement briefly for a Battle of the Sexes. Davies just out-touched Rodriguez. “Almost had him,” Rodriguez wrote on social media.

All COVID-19 pandemic safety precautions were observed. The venue was not open to spectators. Face coverings were worn at all times within the venue. Only athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers were allowed on the pool deck.

Leonardo Mateus, Nat Gembicki Top SOFLO Finishers At FGC Open Water Championship


By Sharon Robb
POMPANO BEACH, April 25, 2021—Leonardo Mateus and Nat Gembicki were top finishers for South Florida Aquatic Club in the Florida Gold Coast Open Water Championship Saturday in less than ideal racing conditions at the north side of the Pompano Beach Pier.

Mateus, 20, was third in 48 minutes and 30 seconds in the 3K men’s race despite choppy water and wind. Pompano Beach Piranhas teammates Marcus Szabo, 15, and Gary Stevens, 15, finished one-two, both in 46:33, with just 100ths of a second separating them.

Mateus’ younger brother Alejandro, 16, was fifth in 50:17. SOFLO had four swimmers in the top 11. Jaden Amores, 14, was ninth in 53:09, Felix Gonzalez, 15, was tenth in 53:13 and Ivan Grass, 16, was 11th in 53:15.

The men’s 3K field featured 39 swimmers.

Gembicki, 16, was fifth in the women’s 3K in 52:53 followed by teammate Izzy Wilson, 15, in 53:12.

Erin Miller, 16, of St. Andrew’s Swimming won the 3K race in 49:41, the only girl swimmer to crack 50 minutes. Teammate Ella Martinez, 18, was second in 50:54. Both were coming off last weekend’s USA Swimming Women’s Open Water National Championship.

St. Andrew’s Swimming had seven girls among the top 11 finishers. The girls field had 25 swimmers.

The 3K started 50 meters north of Pompano Beach Pier about 5 to 10 meters from the shoreline. Swimmers entered the ocean and swam east about 75 meters towards the 4-foot blue triangle buoy. Once past the buoy swimmers turned left and headed north to the 500-meter keeping marking buoys on their left shoulder to loop at the 4-foot light green pyramid buoy. Swimmers completed three loops of the course. On the last leg of the race swimmers passed the 30-inch red marking buoy before turning right and heading west toward the shore finish line chute.

Pompano Beach Piranhas finished one-two again in the men’s 1K race. Famiano Gianni, 15, won in 17:57 and Hardin Kolby, 15, was second in 17:59. The field had 27 finishers.

Kenny Paas, 13, was top SOFLO finisher placing 13th in 21:41 followed by Ryan Harries, 12, 14th in 22:01 and Victor Valdiviezo, 14, 15th in 22:06.

Addison Byrne, 14, of Pompano Beach Piranhas won the women’s 1K race in 18:32. Alexis Christensen, 16, was SOFLO’s top finisher placing sixth in 19:19. Teammate Tania Mantilla, 14, was tenth in 20:56.

The 1K race had the same start. Swimmers raced about 75 meters towards the blue triangle buoy and followed the same course going only one loop of the course. On the last leg of the race swimmers passed the red marking buoy before heading to the beach and finish line chute.

Davi Moreira, 14, of Pompano Beach Piranhas won the boys 14-and-under half kilometer (500) in 9:03, just ahead of Caleb Caponera, 11, of St. Andrew’s Swimming, also in 9:03. Guillermo Mantilla, 10, was SOFLO’s top finisher in 11:06 and only SOFLO swimmer in the top 10. The field had 20 finishers.

Katya Malyshev, 14, won the girls 14-and-under half kilometer race in 8:33. The field had 20 finishers.

The half-kilometer race also had the same starting point, heading east toward the blue buoy and then north for 250 meters. Once past the buoy swimmers turned left and headed 250 meters back to shore.

SOFLO had 30 girls and 22 boys competing in the various distances.

In addition to SOFLO and host Pompano Beach Piranhas, swimmers from the Wahoos of Wellington, St. Andrew’s Swimming, Plantation Swim Team, Hurricane Swimming, Boca Raton Swim Team, Delray Stingers, North Miami Swim Team and Sunrise Swimming competed. Entries were capped at 350.
