SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Nico Rossi


By Sharon Robb
PEMBROKE PINES, May 13, 2021–For nearly thirteen years at South Florida Aquatic Club, Nicolas Rossi always has a smile on his face.

Rossi had the work ethic, drive and passion for the sport, but more importantly he made swimming fun and was fun to be around on the pool deck.

“He made everyone laugh, he was always a clown, he made me laugh,” said SOFLO age group coach Rose Lockie, who coached him for three years. “Nico is always smiling. How can you get angry at Nico? He is well-liked and a nice kid. He always made it a point to say hello even after he left my group and got older.”

Added Rossi, “As a person, I don’t take much stuff seriously, I like to mess around, but not in a bad way. I like to stay loose and not stress about a lot. I like to bring that out and calm everyone down. If everyone is relaxed around me, I guess it worked.”

Rossi, 18, graduates from American Heritage Plantation High School on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium. He is headed to Florida State this fall but has chosen not to swim collegiately. He is undecided about his major.

“I want to be able to find a passion that I will be able to do happily for the rest of my life,” Rossi said.

“It will be a change not swimming,” Rossi said. “I think I’m going to take a break for a while. But I think I will end up going back to it, it’s been such a big part of my life.”

Rossi said he will miss his teammates the most.

“I will miss the camaraderie and messing around at practice,” Rossi said. “When you swim, for the most part it is an individual sport, so being able to have people who support you and are there whenever you need them is a big thing.

“I don’t remember any bad moments at SOFLO. I had a great time every day I was there. The 13 years, training, sacrifice…100 percent worth it. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I think I accomplished everything I wanted to at SOFLO. I don’t have any regrets that really stand out.”

Rossi has been swimming as long as he can remember. His father was also a swimmer. Rossi played football, basketball and baseball but found his niche in swimming. If he wasn’t swimming, he said he would probably be playing wide receiver in football.

“Swimming kind of engaged me more,” Rossi said. “When I was younger I was good at it so the competitiveness was a huge part of it. I liked not having to depend on anyone else and having the pressure being solely on me to do well. I think I always took the sport seriously.”

Despite a few injuries including a shoulder injury during the summer before his junior year, Rossi has been most pleased with his consistency throughout the years.

Thanks to swimming, Rossi was disciplined with his time when it came to both the classroom and training.

“Obviously, if you don’t have any after-school activities you’re going to have six hours out of the day where you just kind of have nothing to do. Swimming gave me something to do and let my energy out.

“It helped me focus on time management outside of school and take control of my life. I learned how to manage the academics along with the athletics. It just really shaped who I am. I wouldn’t be the person I am without having swimming for 13 years. It’s almost like swimming is part of my personality now.”

Rossi is one of 23 graduating seniors who will be honored Sunday, May 23 during Seniors Night in an intimate setting at Academic Village Pool.

By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 16, 2018—The FHSAA State 2A Swimming and Diving Championships Saturday at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center was a huge stepping stone for several South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers.

Somerset Academy girls’ 200-yard medley relay of Isabella DiSalvo, Elise Larin, Kyana Castro and Katrina Del Vecchio won the “B” final in 1:53.34.
