Oviedo Sweeps State 4A Girls, Boys Team Titles; Broward Shut Out Of State Titles; Boca Raton Girls Finish Third


By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 15, 2019—Oviedo High School’s swim program made a little more history at the FHSAA State 4A Swimming and Diving Championships Friday at Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center.

The boys team, surprise winners last year winning its first state title in the program’s history, defended its title and won a second crown.

Even better, the girls team joined them winning its first girls title.

The boys topped a field of 44 teams with 214 points. Sanford Seminole and Sarasota Riverview tied for second with 177 points. Jupiter was top Palm Beach finisher placing fifth with 145 points and Deerfield Beach was top Broward team placing 17th with 32 points.

The girls team, runners-up last year by a slim margin, topped a field of 38 girls teams to win with 333 points. Creekside was second with 198 and Boca Raton was third with 167. Cypress Bay was top Broward team placing 11th with 79 points.

The last time an Orlando-area school won boys and girls swim championships in the same year was Dr. Phillips in 1995. It’s also the first time a girls team from the Orlando area has won a state title in 16 years. Lake Brantley last won in 2003.

“This year, we all have worked a lot harder to become close as a team,” Oviedo senior Abigail Gibbons, an Auburn commit, told the Orlando Sentinel. “We’re all fast kids, we’ve all been good at something, but you can’t do anything if you don’t believe in the team.

“So it’s something we worked for. We wanted it more than ever now, especially that we watched the boys get first place last year and girls got runner-up.”

It was a disastrous night for Broward County teams and swimmers. No boy or girl individual swimmer or relay finished in the Top 3 in any event.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Gaby Banks of Cypress Bay was top finisher placing fifth in the 50-yard freestyle in 23.38. Banks represents Jamaica internationally. Banks also led off Cypress Bay’s fifth place 200-yard freestyle relay that finished in 1:37.21 along with SOFLO teammate Jacqueline Lugo, Nicol Ballardi and SOFLO teammate Paige Lane.

Boca Raton sophomore Emilie Moore won the girls 1-meter diving title with 450.45 points and helped her girls team finish third.

Jupiter senior Tyler Coffey won the boys 1-meter diving title with 509.85 points. Cooper City’s Tyler Flowers was third with 453.35.

Buchholz Girls Four-Peats, Oviedo Boys Win Team Title; SOFLO’s Golding, Lesage Top Finishers; St. Thomas’ Zapata Only Broward Winner At FHSAA State 4A Meet


By Sharon Robb

STUART, November 10, 2018—Kathleen Golding of Cooper City and Lance Lesage of St. Thomas Aquinas were top South Florida Aquatic Club finishers Saturday at the FHSAA State 4A Swimming and Diving Championship at Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center.

In her final state meet appearance, Golding was second in the 200-yard individual medley in a best time of 1:59.30, an automatic All-American time and fastest time in her three previous appearances as state champion. Top-seeded Emma Weyant of Riverview knocked off the defending champion in 1:58.07. Weyant also won the 500-yard freestyle in 4:44.32, a 6-second margin of victory.

Golding, a University of Florida commit, was also third in the 100-yard freestyle in a best time 50.86, lowering her seed time of 51.81.

Cooper City freshman Mallory Schleicher, in her state debut, was tenth in the 500-yard freestyle in a best time 4:59.48 and first time under 5 minutes. Her previous best was 5:03.05. She was also 20th in the 200-yard freestyle in 1:54.63.

Cypress Bay sophomore Paige Lane was tenth in the 200-yard freestyle in a best time 1:52.36. She lowered her previous best of 1:55.94 twice, also in prelims in 1:53.41 and bettered it in finals.

Lesage, a sophomore, was fifth in the 100-yard backstroke in 51.55 after swimming a best time 51.50 in prelims. He went out 25.08 in his first 50. His previous best was 53.35. Lesage was also 11th in the 100-yard freestyle in 47.50.

St. Thomas Aquinas teammate Juan Zapata was the lone Broward County champin winning the 100-yard butterfly in 50.05. He was also fifth in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:53.37.

Gainesville Buchholz won the girls team title for the fourth straight time with 250 points edging out Oviedo with 239.5. Buccholz qualified only seven swimmers led by Talia Bates, daughter of coach Tina Bates and University of Florida commit. The senior swimmers have been year-round Gator Swim Club swimmers since their freshman year.

“We kind of came into it, I did not envision them quite having this kind of success,” Buchholz coach Tina Bates told the Gainesville Sun. “They love high school swimming so much. They have a good, mature working relationship.

“Having such high-end swimmers, the one thing about their freshman year was their sprint ability. To have girls that have so much speed as a group is what makes them so good.”

Defending champion Talia Bates broke her own state record in the 100-yard butterfly in 52.82 and won the 50-yard freestyle in 22.45.

Oviedo, which didn’t win any events, won the boys team title with 231.5 points ahead of Seminole with 216.

Cooper City was the top Broward girls team finisher among a 40-team field placing 14th with 58 points followed by Cypress Bay 15th with 48 points.

St. Thomas Aquinas was the top Broward boys team finisher among a 46-team field placing 13th with 63 points. Cypress Ba was 21st with 27 points.
