april17sizzler slide

 The Sunrise Swim Team hosted an 8 & Under Sizzler on Friday, April 7th. Coral Springs Swim Club’s youngest swimmers gathered in Sunrise to compete in the event. Coach Jessica Long was thrilled with their performances. She said, “we had a great meet! All the kids did so well especially with their Back, Breast and Fly.” CSSC coaches and swimmers have been working hard to improve technique and speed in these events.

Braelyn Thorpe outswam her competition in each of the 4 events in which she competed including the 6 and Under 25 Fly (21.22), Back (23.31), Breast (25.05), and Free (18.85). David Rodriguez dropped time in 2 different events. He claimed 2nd place in his 25 Fly (18.52) and 4th place in his 25 Free. Sophia El Chantiry dropped an impressive 3.8 seconds from her 25 Fly (18.87), securing 3rd place in the 7-8-year-old division.

Gianna Martin not only enjoyed 2 3rd place finishes (one in her 25 Breast (26.95) and the other in her 25 Free (22.88)), but she also placed 5th in her 25 Fly (27.91) and 25 Back (27.84).  Daniel Gil-Restrepo shaved over 3 seconds from his previous personal best in his 25 Fly, securing 3rd place at 29.55.

Both our Girls and Boys teams came in 3rd in their 100 Free Style Relays. Our Girls team was made up of 8-year-olds Addison Palumbo, and Alejandra Gil, 7-year-old Molly Chaison, and 6-year-old Braelyn Thorpe. This powerhouse team completed their relay at 1:22.33, just under 2 seconds shy of YMCA of South Florida’s 2nd place and 8 seconds shy of Pine Crest Swim Team’s 1st.

The Boys relay was swum by 8-year-olds Anthony Palumbo, John Albornoz, David Rodriguez, and Jorge Aguila. Their impressive time of 1:14.96 was just under 3 seconds shy of Sunrise Swimming’s 2nd place and 4 seconds shy of South Florida Aquatic Club’s 1st.

More stand out performances from the event include Jorge Aguila, the lead off for the Boys 100 Free Relay who also dropped time and secured 5th place in both his 25 Back (21.65) and his 25 Breast (24.73Y), and Aveline Harding, who placed 6th in both her 25 Fly (28.98) and her 25 Free (23.54).

More of our swimmers swam personal best times at the Sizzler include Amanda Robins 10 second time drop in her 25 Fly (23.32), Vanessa Rodriguez Walker’s 5 second drop also in her 25 Fly (29.08), and Samantha Grossman and Sydney Larsen, who each swam new personal bests in their 4 events, perhaps most impressively for Grossman was her 6 second improvement in her 25 Fly (24.73) and most impressively for Larsen her 4 second improvement in her 25 Breast (39.82).

 Logan Jeffrey also dropped time in his 25 Breast, finishing at 29.51, 6 seconds ahead of his previous record, Mikhel Martin shaved a second from her 25 Breast (26.07) and Haley Most shaved 2 seconds from hers (26.39).

We cannot wait to see what these young swimmers have in store not only for upcoming Sizzler Meets, but also many more events in the future.

Senior Championships

senior champs 17

The Gold Coast Senior Championships were held March 24-26, 2017 in Pembroke Pines at the Academic Village Swimming Pool. Head Coach Bruno Darzi said, "We had an incredible meet, full of outstanding individual performances. At last weekend's swim meet, we decided to focus on individual swims, and not participate in any relays. The decision made was due to the fact that many relay swimmers had been sick for a few days prior to the meet, and we wanted to give the other swimmers an opportunity to perform at their best”.

Kalvin Hernandez showcased outstanding swims at the event He competed in 6 races and dropped time in every one in order to achieve new personal bests. Hernandez placed 2nd in his 200 Free at 1:44.14, 5th in his 100 IM at 55.96, and 6th in both his 100 Free (48.00) and 50 Fly (23.79). Combined with an 8th place finish in his 100 Fly and a 12th place finish in his 50 Free, Hernandez accumulated a noteworthy 97 points.

18-year-old Jose Pascual enjoyed 3 3rd place finishes in his Breast events. He completed his 50 at 27.24, his 100 at 58.14, and his 200 at 2:05.68. Pascual earned a total of 92 points.

Megan Schimansky earned a cumulative 77 points throughout the weekend, including 19 points for her 4th place finish in her 200 Back at 2:06.73. Delaney Biro was another major point earner. She accumulated 51 points including 15 points for her 6th place finish in her 500 Free (5:10.64) as was Andres McKeon who earned 42, including 15 points for his near 2 second time drop in his 200 Free (1:46.02).

More impressive swims include Dominique Fajardo’s 10th place finish in her 50 Fly (26.92Y), Connor Marks’ 11th place finish in his 200 Back (2:03.93Y), Sarah Schimansky’s time of 5:30.81 in her 500 Free, and Gian Savino’s time of 4:54.29 in his 400 IM.

We also saw a number of time drops this past weekend. Gregory Trimble showcased just how hard he has been training by dropping time in every event in which he competed, including 6 seconds off his 200 Breast (2:25.16) and his 200 Back (2:06.48).

More time drops from the weekend include David Blanco’s 1 second drop in his 50 Breast for a new personal best time of 29.27, Micaela Sierra’s nearly 4 second drop in her 100 Free (57.84), and Pedro DaSilva’s 2.5 second drop in his 500 Free (5:01.17).

Darzi was proud of our swimmers’ performances over the weekend, “the results were exactly what we expected. I could not be more proud of this group of athletes.” As always, he is looking toward the future and what it holds for CSSC, “now it's time to recharge and get ready for the long course season."
