Cali, the capital of Valle del Cauca, is hosting the first-ever edition of the Junior Pan American Games.

It is a key event in the lead-up to the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games and Paris 2024 Olympics, allowing up-and-coming athletes a new level of competition they didn’t have past years.

Approximately 3,000 volunteers, 1,400 technical officials and 1,142 other officials are participating along with 4,806 athletes from 41 countries and territories affiliated with Panam Sports in 39 sports. The meet is for ages up to 22.

Neither the U.S. or Canada, the region’s most successful countries, sent swim teams to the event although they are competing in other sports. Brazil (25), Colombia (25), and Mexico (26) have the largest delegations of swimmers.

The Games were initially scheduled to begin on June 5 but were postponed to September 9 to 19. It was further delayed because of COVID-19 before moving to late November and early December.

By Sharon Robb
STUART, November 6, 2021—In one of the fastest meets in state history, Jacksonville Bolles brought out the best in every one on a wind-chilled Saturday night at Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center.

Bolles swept the team titles and raised the bar for every other team in the meet. The boys won with 574 points and girls with 370 points.

King’s Academy boys were second with 174.5, St. Andrew’s third with 165, South Florida Heat fourth with 159, NSU University School sixth with 102.5 and Pine Crest ninth with 92 points.

St. Andrew’s girls were runner-up with 238, Pine Crest third with 200, King’s Academy with 186, Cutler Bay fifth with 166 and South Florida Heat seventh with 118.

Bolles has won every boys state championship since 1988 and every girls title since 1991, and with 30 years of tradition on the line, Bolles kept the streak going. Bolles has now won a record 34 boys titles and 31 girls titles to continue as the state’s all-time high school swimming dynasty.

Unparalleled depth and relay excellence buoyed Bolles. Bolles won two girls relays and all three boys relays and won two individual girls events and five individual boys events.

In the boys competition, there were 40 automatic All-American times and 43 All-American consideration times posted. In the girls competition, there were 29 automatic All-American times and 33 All-American consideration times.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Olivia Dinehart of Cutler Bay won her first state title in the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:02.28, an automatic All-American time. She was also third in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:03.61, an All-American consideration time.

SOFLO’s Maddy Smutny, also of Cutler Bay, was second in the 500-yard freestyle in 4:54.20, an All-American consideration time.

Three state records were broken during prelims and finals.

King’s Academy’s Josh Zuchowski broke the state record in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:45.51, breaking the 2004 record of 1:46.31 set by Bradley Ally of St. Thomas Aquinas. Zuchowski also won the 100-yard backstroke in 47.29. Both were automatic All-American times.

South Florida Heat sophomore Erika Pelaez broke the state record in the 100-yard backstroke in 52.34. The previous record was 52.46 set by Clara Smiddy of South Florida Heat in 2013. Pelaez also won the 50-yard freestyle in 22.29. Both were automatic All-American times.

In prelims, Bolles’ William Heck broke his own 100-yard breaststroke record in 53.64. His 2020 state record was 53.73. He went on to win the event in 53.95.

Pine Crest senior diver Kevin Mendez took his final bow on 1-meter winning his sixth consecutive state title becoming one of the state’s most decorated athletes. Mendez won with 606.75 points ahead of teammate Allen Levitis with 490.50.

The victory gave him state records in most consecutive individual titles and most individual diving titles in state history. He broke a tie of four straight that stood for 33 years with Brian Gillooly, Gateway (Kissimmee), who won from 1990-93 and Mark Ruiz, Dr. Phillips (Orlando), 1994-97. No other swimmer or diver has won six straight titles since records were kept, dating back to the 1920s.

Pine Crest’s Julia Podkoscielny won the 200-yard individual medley in a career-best 1:59.79, an automatic All-American time. The U.S. junior national team member was the only swimmer in the field to break 2 minutes. Her previous best was 2:01.89. She was also second in the 100-yard backstroke in 53.30, an automatic All-American time.

In the most exciting relay race of the night, St. Andrew’s won the girls 400-yard freestyle relay in 3:23.46 with Aspen Gersper, Nicole Aguilar, Erin Miller and Ella Martinez ahead of Bolles in 3:23.51. Gersper also won the 100-yard butterfly in 54.02.

Kaii Winkler of South Florida Heat took seconds in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:36.78 and 100-yard freestyle in 44.00. Both were automatic All-American times.

NSU University School was second in the 400-yard freestyle relay in an All-American consideration time and school record 3:08.63 with Karl Wilson Aimable, Michele Vandenbossche, Marcelo Carrion and Max Fermayer. The relay broke an eight-year-old record.

A disqualification proved costly for the Pine Crest girls. The Panthers had their top-seeded girls’ 400-yard freestyle relay disqualified in morning prelims.

The Class 3A and 4A state meets are next Friday and Saturday.
