BRANDON CHEONG’S GAME CHANGING BREASTSTROKE LEG HELPS BUCHOLZ EARN 4A STATES MEDLEY RELAY SILVER MEDAL

On Saturday November 16 at the Florida 4A State Championships in Stuart Florida Aruba’s Brandon Cheong provided a sensational breaststroke leg for the Bucholz high school to help them win the Silver medal in the 200 yard medley relay.

The final of the 200 yard medley relay at the  Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center saw Bucholz trailing in 6th place after the backstroke leg. It would take a great leg by Brandon to move them back into medal contention. He provided just that leg with a 25.91 split. That time was the third fastest leg in 4A State Championships  final history. That brought the team to third and gave anchor Julian Hill to challenge for the Gold. The total team was 1:33.70 earning them the Silver just behind Lake Brantley in 1:33.61. The team performance was also best the time done by Bucholz at the State Championships. This is the second consecutive Silver medal for the school as they placed second in 2017 in 1:33.99.

In the 50 yard freestyle he recorded a personal best of 21.81 in the heats to make the B final. In that race he stopped the clock in 22.02 to place 6th his best performance at the Championships.  The 100 yard breaststroke saw him recording a season best of 58.49 in the heats before placing 4th in the B final in 59.66.

Brandon Cheong

“Honestly I had an amazing teammates this season, it wasn’t just me who had a great effect on the relay. My teammates made an awesome role for making states and we earned second place in the 200 yard medley relay. When I stepped on the block I knew I had to step up for my guys to win in the 200 medley relay. I’ve actually felt great in the water, I was mainly focusing on my turns, stroke and my underwater. When I touched the wall I saw the 25.91, I was actually shocked to go below 26 seconds in the 50 breaststroke. After I got out of the water I was supporting my teammates as loud as possible”.

It is also the fastest time by a Jamaican male swimmer since Brian’s older brother Travis swam 21.88 to place 5th in the 2005 Championship final. This is also the second consecutive B final win for Grant as he  had won the 100 yard breaststroke B final in 2017.

Grant would continue his good showing in the 200 yard freestyle relay. This as the Bolles team clocked 1:25.02 to take the Bronze medal. Grant would anchor the team in 21.23.

When draftingthecaribbean spoke to Grant yesterday

“At States in the morning it was bit cold ,colder than Districts but I did all the necessary things I needed to do such as extra warm up and carry warm apparel to wear. I swam the race  pretty well I went 21.58.I believed my stroke rate was a bit slow.That 21.58 placed me 10th and in the B final. I warmed down after that race and focused on recovery after the swim .I came back in the finals and went as fast as I could . I worked on a fast turnover rate as possible while maintaining my efficiency and went 21.51.I would have loved to get the Futures Swimming standard of 21.49 but I am still happy with the swim.In the 200 yard freestyle relay I was the anchor leg swimmer  and I went 21.23 from a relay start . The swim itself was decent  but in the future I will need to work on my underwaters”.

The Futures Swimming Championships are designed to be a a stepping stone between  Sectionals meets and Junior Nationals, allowing those swimmers not qualifying for Junior Nationals to compete in a meet of their own.

The last swimmer to win the event was the legendary Olympian George Bovell III of Trinidad and Tobago when he won the title for the Bolles School in 2000.

It would be a Golden path to double success in the event for the University school student at the State Championships in Stuart Florida. He would take the race on September 23 at the Woodson Invitational easily in a time of 51.77 (split time 25.80).

In the 200 yard freestyle relay Patrick had the fastest opening leg split of both the preliminaries and finals of 20.51. The unit of Groters and Jacobs had the 2nd fastest 100 yards of the competition and that propelled their school to 3rd in the  B final in a total time of 1:29.42.It would be that same Aruban one –two punch at the front half of the 400 yard freestyle that pushed the University school to 6th in the Championship final in a time of 3:15.38. Patrick’s first leg split was timed at 45.97 (split time 22.28).
