HIGH SCHOOL/COLLEGE SWIMMING NOTEBOOK: Jerew, Virgin Commit; Nick Dworet Stroke Clinic Coming Up; Bolles Coach Stepping Down


By Sharon Robb

September 11, 2108—Two top high school and club swimmers, Hannah Virgin and Hailey Jerew, have made verbal college commitments.

Jerew of AquaKids Sharks and recent USA Swimming Futures champion in the 50-meter freestyle, verbally committed to Florida Gulf Coast.

Jerew, a senior at Cutler Bay Academy, a Class 1A school. She is a U.S Open qualifier in the 50-meter freestyle and has a junior national cut in the 100-meter breaststroke. She was a seven-time finalist at the Florida Gold Coast Senior Championships in March.

Florida Gulf Coast won its fourth straight and ninth overall CCSA crown last season. Jerew is expected to compete in the sprint and breaststroke events in college.

Hannah Virgin, a two-time defending state 1A champion in the 100-yard breaststroke at Pine Crest, verbally committed to Virginia Tech. She won a state title as a sophomore in 1:04.06 and junior in 1:03.89.

Virgin competes year-round with Pine Crest. As a club swimmer, Virgin has a U.S. Open time standard in the 100 breaststroke. She competed in both breaststroke events and 200 individual medley at the 2017 Speedo Winter Juniors East meet.

At the Florida Gold Coast Senior Championships in 2017, she won the 200 breast (2:15.53) and was the runner-up in the 100 (1:04.65). She has dual citizenship competes for Sweden internationally. She is a Swedish age group championship medalist.

NICHOLAS DWORET STROKE CLINIC

The inaugural Swim 4 Nick free swim stroke clinic will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Coral Springs Aquatic Complex. The clinic is for novice and intermediate middle and high school swimmers. Participants should know all four strokes. Registration ends Sept. 25 at http://www.swim4nick.org. The clinic is open to all swimmers from Broward, Dade and Palm Beach to bring swimmers together for a day of learning and help keep Nick’s legacy alive.

The clinic, sponsored in part by Triton Insurance Group and presented by The Nicholas Dworet Memorial Fund, Inc., is a 501c (3) Charity and benefits the fund.

Dworet was killed Feb. 14, 2018 in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting. Dworet started swimming at age 7 and had a scholarship waiting for him at University of Indianapolis this fall and hopes of swimming in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Dworet was always helping friends and teammates. In his memory, a swim clinic is being held in his honor for swimmers who want to improve through hard work and dedication just as Dworet did through the years.

High school and club coaches will be on hand to work with swimmers. There will be giveaways and raffles.

CIESLA READY FOR SEASON

Pine Crest alum Marta Ciesla is more than ready for her sophomore season at University of Southern California. In the recent Cardinal vs. Gold intraquad exhibition meet, she went 36.40 in a 75-meter race, winning by more than a body length…Clearwater’s Becca Mann, also of USC, earned Pac-12 All-Academic first team honors. Mann, eligible for the award for the first time as a sophomore, earned first team honors with a 3.80 GPA. The U.S. national team open water swimmer, who has already written a book, is majoring in writing for screen and television.

BOLLES COACH STEPS DOWN

Jon Sakovich, a former All-American at Florida, is stepping down as head coach of Jacksonville Bolles in December. He has been at Bolles for 18 years. Sakovich said he is seeking new opportunities. Bolles is beginning a national search for a head coach and aquatics director replacement immediately.

In a prepared statement, Sakovich said: “I am very thankful to The Bolles School for allowing me this amazing opportunity for the last eighteen years and I could not ask for a better place to work. It is time for me to seek a change in my career direction and look for new ways to expand my professional horizons. I am committed to the continued growth and success of our student-athletes and I look forward to working with them through the fall.

“The Bolles School and Bolles Swim Programs will always have a special place in my heart. Without this opportunity, I would not be the person, father and coach I am today,” Sakovich said.

The Bolles boys and girls swimming and diving teams have reached a combined total of 14 national titles. Fifty-nine Bolles students, alumni or Sharks have participated in every Olympics since 1972, representing 28 countries and claiming 20 medals.
