Sunrise Sizzler and Turkey Classic

 Sunrise Swimming SizzlerSunrise Swimming hosted the 8 and Under Sizzler on November 4th. Coral Springs Swim Club’s younger swimmers were honored to compete at the meet and did so with both skill and precision. Jessica Long was proud of each and every one of them, “they all did so well”.

Braelyn Thorpe was at the top pf her game. She earned 1st place victories in 3 different races, the 25 Fly (26.73), 25 Back (24.65), and 25 Free (23.42), and 2nd place in the 25 Breast at 30.64. We are so proud of her and all of our other swimmers who competed at the event and their families who cheered our swimmers on.

CSSC relies heavily on the support of our volunteers. They selflessly give their time to run things behind the scenes and their hard work is a huge part of our success.  A big thank you to Jorge Aguila, a team parent, who helped us greatly running and organizing the relays at the Sizzler.

Other highlights of the meet include Daniel Gil-Restrepo’s 3rd place finish in the 25 Back (32.37), and Jorge Aguila’s 3rd place finish in the 25 Butterfly (21.81).  David Rodriguez finished the 25 Fly just behind Aguila at 22.0, resulting in 5th place.  

CSSC Girls combined their efforts and made a fantastic showing in the 8 and Under 100 Relay. 2nd place was secured by teammates 6-year-old Braelyn Thorpe, 7-year-old Molly Chaison, and 8-year-olds Alejandra Gil and Sophia El Chantiry. Their time 1:22.28 was sandwiched between 2 teams from Pine Crest Swim Team who took 1st at 1:15.23 and 3rd at 1:23.6.

Our Boys took third place in the 8 and Under 100 Free relay. 7-year-olds Jorge Aguila and Alex Mitov, began the relay with speed and strong technique while 8-year-olds David Rodriguez and Dominique Aris finished it with an impressive final time of 1:23.52. Another team consisting 5-year-old Daniel Gil-Restrepo, 7-year-olds Gabriel Delpino and John Albornoz, and 8-year old Tomas Tavares Juvencio also did well in the relay, securing 7th place with a combined time of 1:38.81.

We recently welcomed some swimmers new to CSSC. This Sizzler was the first meet for Noa Nierman, Samantha Grossman, Tomas Tavares Juvencio, Logan Jeffrey, Kenslee Ward, Catlin O’Mara, and Gabriel Delpino. We are thrilled with your performances at your first meet and are excited to see what your future with CSSC will hold in events to come.

The 2016 Piranhas Turkey Classic held on November 6th was hosted by the Pompano Beach Piranhas. CSSC was privileged to compete in this fantastic event and we saw amazing efforts and  great success from our swimmers.

 This was a first meet for Meaghan Swack, Avril Rosano, Josemiguel Marticorena, Jax and Cooper Yellin, Emma Lin, Max Cisternas, Adrianna Raucci, and Michael Tran. Coach Long happily reported that “they did great!

We saw some time drops at the Turkey Classic in a variety of events. In the 50 Fly, Courtney Hartung dropped 2 seconds (45.07) and Payton Schurr dropped 3 seconds (46.31). In the 50 Breast Kaitlyn Irwin and, Vivi Fernandez each dropped 8 seconds (1:04.97 and 55.53 respectively), David Rodriguez dropped 2 seconds (1:03.44), Oscar Dougherty dropped 4 seconds (57.74), and Catherine Voit dropped one second (55.19).

 The 50 Free was a blast for all of our swimmers and resulted in personal bests for many. Molly Chaison dropped 13 seconds (50.40), Oscar Dougherty dropped 14 seconds (40.84), Camden Dumas dropped 2 seconds (47.10), Courtney Hartung dropped 4 seconds (39.17), and Kyra Rattray dropped 4 seconds (43.02).

Although the three above events resulted in many successes and personal bests, the event that stood out the most was the 50 Backstroke, which was a very strong race for all kids. Coach Long saw great gains from Addison Palumbo (56.34), Emma Lin (59.66) and Kaitlyn Irwin (55.07).  Jack Maniscalco dropped 3 seconds (1:01.78), Kenneth Rattray 8 seconds (1:12.87), Antony Palumbo dropped 3 seconds (48.09), Valerie Block 21 seconds (49.25), and Camden Dumas dropped 3 seconds (54.48).  Coach Long attributes the success of these times to the efforts put forth by both swimmers and coaches at practice. She notes that “we have been really working hard on the backstroke specifically”.

Coach Bar Bogoslavsky also enjoys watching her kids compete. She said, “meets are a great way for me to see what needs to be worked on and I was very proud of Silver group in their races”. Coach Bogoslavsky will continue to train her students and she is “looking forward to our home meet in December”.

Superman, Harry Potter, Ninja Turtles, a scarecrow, a Knight-in-Shining -Armor, a Ghost Buster, and a Life Guard were all guests at the Coral Springs Swim Club annual Halloween Party.

Giulianna FLIES



On October 14-16th, the Mike Horgan Memorial Invitational was held at the Lake Lytal Family Aquatic Complex and the 2016 8 & Under Sizzler was held at the Sunrise Civic Center. Swimmers, coaches, families, and supporters of Coral Springs Swim Club gathered at both events for an action packed weekend.


We had so many great swimmers competing at the Mike Horgan Invitational and it proved to be an excellent opportunity for our swimmers to show both how their hard work in practice and their dedication to the sport pays off in competition.


Some of our top placers include Giulianna Garcia, who earned a total of 65 points in 8 different events and and Riley Botting, who earned 63 points in 9 different events. Garcia placed 1st in the 400 IM by shaving over 7 seconds off her best time, coming in at 4:58.5. Garcia also finished 1st in the 200 Fly (2:23.13), and 2nd in the 200 IM (2:21.98) and 100 Fly (1:02.84) Botting placed 1st in the 50 Breast (33.43), 100 Breast (1:11.69), and 200 Breast (2:38.54). She also dropped an astounding 38.23 seconds off her 500 Free for a second place finish at 5:41.26.


Ryan Brander also swam his Breast races with skill. He earned a total of 23 points for 3rd place finishes in the 50 (34.22) and 200 (2:48.86), and a 4th place finish in the 100 (1:17.56). Lydia Lanahan placed 2nd in the challenging 1650 Free with a commendable time of 20:41.86 and Sebastian Savino placed 2nd in the 100 Back (1:21.72).


Some more highlights from the Invitational include Alejandro Alvarez who dropped nearly 10 seconds from his 500 Free at 6:08.55 and earned 5 points for his 6th place finish and Brianna Dattile who placed 2nd in her 50 Breast (34.03). Dattile earned a total of 61 points for CSSC at the event.


Our younger swimmers also showed grit in their Sizzler event. Coach Jessica Long reported that her "kids all did really well and had a lot of fun" at the Sizzler meet. She added, "We have been working really hard on our backstroke lately and the kids did really well across the board in that event". It is always encouraging to see the hard work and dedication that our swimmers put into practice pay off.


Some highlights from the Sizzler meet include two 1st place finishes from Carolyn Powell, one in the 25 Fly (17.99) and the other in the 25 Back (19.24). Powell also placed 3rd in the 25 Breast and 5th in the 25 Free.


Braelyn Thorpe also swam some noteworthy races. She placed 2nd in both the 25 Free (21.10) and the 25 Back (26.14) and 3rd in the 25 Fly (26.58) and 25 Breast (31.56). David Rodriguez placed 4th in his 25 Back with a time of 21.35.


Many swimmers showed improvements by dropping time off their personal bests at the Sizzler. Daniel Gil-Restrepo dropped 3.47 seconds from his 25 Fly, finishing in 7th place at 36.94. Valeria Gutierrez-Ulivarri and Sidney Larsen both shaved over 4 seconds off an event, the 25 Breast for Gutierrez-Ulivarri (31.71) and the 25 Fly for Larsen (44.75).


A special welcome to newcomer Samantha Grossman who swam 4 events. Based on her performance, we see many great swims in her future.



Based on the outcome of these two events, we are eagerly anticipating great swims in upcoming meet and fully expect to finish off 2016 in a way that showcases Coral Springs Swim Club as the premiere community swim team in Florida.
