The Cape Coral boys and girls swim teams came to the District 2A-10 meet Thursday and dominated much of the competition. But that dominance isn’t quite official yet.
The Seahawks were leading both meets handily later on when one of the coaches contested the diving division, so the team results remained unofficial at day’s end and the FHSAA will decide the case at a later date.
Cape Coral had compiled 438 team points in the boys half, leading second place Lemon Bay by 36. The Seahawk girls led Port Charlotte by almost 100 points at Naples’ Norris Aquatics Center Thursday afternoon.
Most coaches on hand agreed the diving results won’t affect the team standings much.
Cape Coral’s boys won five events, led by Jonah Martinez’ triumphs in the 100 breaststroke and the 50 freestyle.
The winners in both the girls and boys meets will swim in the region meet next Thursday at the Florida Gulf Coast Aquatics Center.
“Our boys team is fun to work with. They have been all season long,” said Cape Coral coach Dianne Kimble. “They always bring a lot of energy to meets. I was most pleased with the boys relay teams today. They have have a lot of spirit and teamwork, and they showed it when we won (the 400 freestyle relay) the race near the end. They represent what the team is all about.”
Santi Rosas also won the 100 backstroke for the Seahawks.
Cape also won the 200 and 400 medley relay.
“The diving is something that’ll have to be looked into,” Kimble said. “I don’t know if it will affect the outcome. I thought everything was done fairly, but it’s best to let the FHSAA handle it.”
The Manta Rays were second. Lely finished in the boys meet, led by Lucca Delcompare’s two victories.
Martinez was on the Seahawks’ 200 medley relay and 400 freestyle relay teams as well. Rosas was also on the 200 medley relay team.
Other winners in the boys meet included Delcompare in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly, Morgan Kuphal of Lely in the 100 freestyle, Jeffrey Fazler of Lemon Bay in the 200 individual medley and Steven Trombley of Port Charlotte in the 500 freestyle.
In the girls meet, Savannah Bowser won two of Cape Coral’s three first-place ribbons. Bowser prevailed in the 200 and 500 freestyle. The Seahawks also won the 400 freestyle relay.
“I was proud how everyone on the boys team came together,” Kimble said. “Savannah swam very well, and it will be exciting to see how she does next week.”
Port Charlotte was second in the meet. Makenzie Miller won the 100 backstroke and 200 individual medley. Caitlin Moss-Solomon won the 100 freestyle and Amber Hrabak prevailed in the 100 breaststroke.
Other girls champs included Abby Shea of Lemon Bay in the 50 freestyle and Grace Ann Delcompare from Lely in the 100 butterfly.
“Everyone knew it would be a tough meet today,” Kimble said. “We knew it would take teamwork to get anything at all done here.”
