Just like the girls, the Jupiter boys were off to the races, chalking up consecutive wins in the 200 medley relay and 200 free. That 200 free win came from Alex Cronin, who posted an impressive 1:45.23 for the victory. Jupiter won the 50 and 100 free, and Cronin returned for first place in the 500 free (4:45.30). It was all Jupiter from then on, as they won the remainder of the events, dominating especially so in the free relays.

The only non-Jupiter wins came from Seminole Ridge’s Christian Cioffi. The junior won the 200 IM (2:04.71) and the 100 fly (54.98). He was actually trailing at the 50 to Jupiter’s Matthew Wiefels by 26 hundredths, but came back hard for the win.

DISTRICT 8

Boca Raton was all over this meet winning on both the girls’ and boys’ sides. Team scores are as follows:

GIRLS

Boca Raton – 550
Wellington – 362
Park Vista – 248
Palm Beach Central – 227
Spanish River – 211

Boca Raton took the medley relay, and their first individual win came in the 50 free, where Kelly Harrington posted a 24.86, the only swimmer under 25. Jenna Calello followed up in the next event for another Boca Raton victory, followed by Harrington’s return in the 100 free where she won in 53.93.

Boca Raton won the 200 free relay and then the final three events as they secured their team title.

Big swims: Camryn Hudson of Park Vista had a nice double, winning the 200 free (1:57.89) and 500 free (5:09.88). The 500 came down to the touch, as Boca Raton’s Victoria Miyamoto was 5:09.94 and stayed with Hudson the whole race. Harrington had impressive relay splits on the medley (24.67) and 400 relays (54.82), helping her team to win the meet.

Cody Cline of Wellington lit up the pool with a very quick 21.18 in the 50 free, followed by a 46.79 in the 100 free. He won both events, and helped Wellington to win the 200 medley and 400 free relay. Wellington also won the 200 free relay.

Boca Raton racked up points, however, in the 200 IM and 100 fly, placing 1-3 in both events. Brody Heck of Boca Raton placed 2nd behind Cline in the sprint free events, going 22.08 in the 50 and 47.13 in the 100. Jose Garcia also won the 100 back for Boca Raton, the only swimmer to break a minute in that event.

Other impressive swims came from Yousef Abdelraouf (Park Vista), whose 1:46.87 claimed the 200 free title, and a blazing 46.26 anchor from Cline.

DISTRICT 9

St. Thomas Aquinas (STA) took team titles on both the girls’ and boys’ sides by substantial margins. This is how the scores broke down:

GIRLS

STA – 553
Douglas – 285
South Plantation – 277
Coral Glades – 270
Taravella – 172

The STA girls won all three relays, and took victories in the 200 IM, 500 free (in which they swept 1-4), and 100 breast. The win in the breast came from University of Louisville commit Caitlin Ahern, who recently moved to Florida from Illinois. Ahern’s 30.76 was also the fastest breaststroke split in the medley relay.

Lydia Musleh of Coral Glades had a fantastic swim in the 200 free, going 1:51.84 ahead of Douglas’ Samantha Roth (1:55.66) for the win. The two would battle again in the 100 free, which was much closer. Musleh came out on top again, finishing in 52.35 to Roth’s 52.70.

Another great duel took place between Coral Glades freshman Megan Schimansky and South Plantation senior Meagan Abad in the 100 back. Schimansky took the event in 58.76, touching out Abad, who finished 2nd at 58.94. The two were the only swimmers to break the minute barrier.

Ahern’s 1:07.73 in the 100 breast just beat out Douglas’ Emily Jurich, who placed 2nd in 1:07.82.

BOYS

STA – 552
Douglas – 396
Monarch – 238
South Plantation – 214
Deerfield Beach 194

After dropping the medley relay to Douglas by less than a second, STA went on to win the next three events, highlighted by a quick 21.51 by senior Gabriel Perez Silva.

Silva came back for a blowout win in the 100 free (47.17), with the next competitor way back above 49 seconds.

A battle between two STA boys went down in the 500, where Padraic Cassidy ultimately came out with the victory (4:46.55) over teammate Esteban Velasquez (4:47.98).

STA won the remaining two free relays. Silva lit up the pool again in the 200 free relay, posting a 21.34 as leadoff to set up STA for the win. August Charni of Coral Glades had the fastest split of anyone in the 400 free relay (48.83), pushing his team to 3rd in the event behind STA and Douglas.
