ST. PETERSBURG — Matt Tomlin capped his stellar swimming career at Osceola with his fourth consecutive district title in the breaststroke at the Class 2A, District 9 championships at North Shore Pool.

“It’s something to validate all the hard work put in over the years and makes you reflect on the early morning workouts and why they’ve been so important,” said Tomlin, who had a winning time of 2 minutes, 2 seconds.

Tomlin was an integral piece in helping the Warriors defend their district title as well, as Osceola tallied 474 points to beat Lakewood Ranch (314 ).

“Matt has been so influential for the way the rest of the team has developed, and the younger swimmers have learned how to push themselves even further,” Osceola coach Karen Moneymaker said.

Tomlin teamed with Calvin Bryant, Sean Staszak, and Robert Slockett to take the 200 medley relay and free relay along with Staszak, Slockett and Tyler West.

The Osceola girls team tied with Lakewood Ranch at 416 points each. The relay of Christina Tournaut, Sarah Sykes, Morgan Restz and Nicole Powers moved from sixth in the morning to second in the final to help the Warriors.

Tarpon Springs’ Kelsey Buckley won the 200 individual medley for the second straight year and also captured the 100 free. “I’m just trying to build up strength for the regions and states,” said Buckley, who won the medley last year.
