High School 2014

FIREBIRDS SWIMMING

  In the Fall of 2000, the Firebirds competed in their first meet. With the support of Patricia Zulueta and the administration of Doral Academy, the team has grown in size and scope over the past 15 years. Today our members number close to 80. As a member of the FHSAA, we are a Fall sanctioned sport competing from August through mid-November. We also offer a conditioning program during the off season months.

  Firebird swimmers are scholar-athletes first and foremost. Our athletes are involved in community service projects year round. 99.9% of our swimmers have continued their academics in college. We currently have Div I swimmers among our alumni. 
   We count among our numbers the First All County Athlete from Doral Academy (Cat Silveira), numerous First Team All County selections ( Cat Silveira 4x, Chinyere Pigot 4x, Emily Silveira 2x, Melissa Moreno 1x, Diguan Pigot 1x), Miami Herald Swimmer of the Year ( Diguan Pigot), Miami Herald Coach of the Year (Coach Silveira), State finalists, Regional and District Champions, Academic All Americans, Academic Scholastic All Americans, and some of the best student athletes in Doral Academy Prep.

  We are very proud to have the first two state champions in Firebird history: Chinyere Pigot (50 free 2011) Diguan Pigot (100 Breaststroke 2012).
