Megan  back

Coral Springs Swim Club participated in the 2017 North Palm Beach Long Course Summer Kick-Off. This annual event, in it's 9th year, was hosted by North Palm Beach Swim Club and held June 3-4th at Plantation Central Park. Head Coach Bruno Darzi was excited with the results from the swim meet, "our age group swimmers did really well". The meet not only gave CSSC swimmers a chance to compete but also "the National Team swimmers used the meet to race the kids from other teams instead of racing at home at the end of the practice". 

Megan Schimansky secured 2nd place in her 200 Back with an impressive time of 2:30.66. Micaela Sierra placed 5th in her 100 Breast at 1:21.83, while Grant Aran finished his 200 Free in 8th place at 2:14.81.

Many of our swimmers improved their Freestyle personal records over the weekend in including Payton Schurr shaving over 33 seconds from her 200 Free (3:49.42) and12 seconds from her 50 Free (39.95), as well as Courtney Hartung by an impressive 18 seconds in her 200 Free for a new record of 3:15.48. More swimmers who improved their time include Grace Nemanic by over 17 seconds in her 200 Free (2:38.44), Darion Louis-Jeune by 13 seconds in his 50 Free (28.71), Cole Narbonne by nearly 10 seconds in his 200 Free (2:43.51), Mikhel Martin by 7 seconds in her 50 Free (45.93), John Albornoz by over 6 seconds in his 200 Free (3:55.67), John Lynch, Katrina White,Grayson Yellin, and Melanie Suglio both by nearly 4 seconds in their 200 Free (2:52.83, 2:57.31, 2:57.48 and 3:29.08 respectively), and Jorge Aguila and Ryan Lynch by nearly 3 seconds in their 50 Free (42.62 and 41.30 respectively). Nicolas VilarMarli Dearen, Samuel McCormick, Briana Dattile, Pedro DaSilva, Victoria VeigaKiara Kaminietzky, Brandon Schutz, Lydia Lanahan, and William Olson also acheived new personal bests in their respective Free style races.  

Although Freestyle was the stroke in which we saw the most time drops over the weekend, it was evident that CSSC swimmers and coaches have been working on improving technique and times in other strokes as well. We also saw new personal records in the following events: Payton Schurr shaved 0ver 50 seconds from her 100 Breast (2: 11.28), Melanie Suglio shaved 20 seconds from her 100 Breast (2:10.33), Sherwin Sterling shaved 13 seconds from his 100 Breast (2:12.55), Giulianna Garcia shaved over 7 seconds from her 200 Back (2:45.58), Jorge Aguila shaved over 5 seconds from his 100 Breast (2: 11.12), Ryan Lynch shaved over 4 seconds from his 100 Breast (1:43.83), Jordan Howard and Molly Chaison both shaved over 2 seconds from their 100 Breast (1:28.66 and 2:19.39 respectively), and Gian Savino and Andres McKeon both shaved over 1 second from their 100 Fly (1:10.68 and 1:06.33 respectively).

Darzi said that the event was "a great opportunity for the coaches to see where we are in the middle of the season" and concluded, "we are looking forward racing at home at the Michael Lohberg International Invitational in 2 weeks". 

Carly Brewington Commits to East Tennessee State University

Brewington 2On June 2nd, Carly Brewington will graduate from Coral Glades High School. She has committed to attend East Tennessee State University this Fall. Brewington knew that she wanted to pursue her higher education at a school that could satisfy her desire to both teach in Special Education, and compete in athletics. As a highly competetive athlete specializing in triathalons, Brewington was seeking an institution which struck an equal balance for both passions. "There are limited options when it comes to NCAA triathlon and I had a better opportunity at this school than any other".Brewington 1
Brewington embarked on a recruiting trip in December of 2016 and was attracted to ETSU's Division 1 Triathlete program. After meeting with her future coach Janine Pleasant, and teammates she decided to make ETSU her home. Pleasant signed Brewington, along with 3 other athletes, and expressed her excitement in April of this year stating that "they bring a wealth of experience and speed to our team, and are exactly what we need as we enter our second season of competition".
Brewington plans to major in Special Education and feels that ETSU will provide her with the education and experience she will require in order to serve her future students and community. In fact, ETSU was founded in 1911 East Tennessee State Normal School to educate teachers and has a solid history of training the best educators.
Education is a field in which Brewington has had a passion for and looks forward to training and serving future generations. "I love working with children. This year, I was able to have a job at a catholic school as well as receive my Child Development Associate Credential (CDA)."
Brewington 3Athletics, and specifically swimming, has been a passion of Brewington's from an early age. She started swimming at the age of 5, and competitively with Coral Springs Swim Club at the age of 8. Brewington then went on to compete in Triathalons at age 11. Brewington competes with CSSC and also Coral Glades High School's Cross Country team. When asked what she enjoys most about the swimming, Brewington replied " I love the different opportunities swimming has given me. I have been able to meet and train with such amazing people."
One of her favorite memories of CSSC is traveling to the Keys for a swim meet when she was younger. "I made so many friends on that trip and had such a fun time."
