The Belleair Country Club’s Breakers swim team broke a record in the 200 meter free-style relay June 7.
BELLEAIR – While millions of people watched California Chrome’s unsuccessful attempt to break a 36-year-old record on June 7, four Belleair boys had just broken a different 36-year-old record in a pool in Lakeland.

Since 1978, no 10-and-under team in Florida’s Private Club had swum faster than two minutes and two seconds in the 200 meter free-style relay, a news release said.

That was until Belleair Country Club’s Breakers swim team shattered that time by almost two seconds.

Blake Johnston, Tyler Roberton, Asher Flesch, and Sawyer Flesch, all 10 years old, set the record at the 2014 Private Club League Championship Meet in the Gandy Pool at the Kelly Recreation Complex with a time of 2:00.91. The previous record was 2:02.76.

“We’re always proud of the men and women who participate in our various sports activities, but today we’re especially proud of the boys on our 10-and-under swim team and their significant accomplishment,” said Ed Shaughnessy, general manager of Belleair Country Club. “Coach Craig Coghlan and his staff have put together a fine team that continues to exhibit the level of prestige and excellence our club was founded on and continues to operate around.”

The BCC Breakers competitive swimming team was formed in 2008. Coghlan began with the BCC Breakers as an assistant coach four years ago and took over as head coach in 2012.

The Private Club League is a spring and summer competitive swimming league that includes nine southwest Florida country club swim teams.

Belleair Country Club, at One Country Club Lane, traces its roots to 1897 and is Florida’s first golf club.
