ST. PETERSBURG -- For Academy of Holy Names and Jesuit, Saturday was unusual yet satisfying.
The Jaguars girls and Tigers boys teams defended their district titles and didn't have to ruin their evenings.
Day-long rains forced cancellation of the night finals at North Shore Pool, meaning preliminary results were used to determine team champions and state meet berths, awarded to the top three finishers in each race.
Jesuit qualified all three of its boys relays for next week's state meet in Fort Lauderdale and had swimmers finish in the top six of every event. The AHN girls also advanced all of their relays, and Tara Hyer won Thursday's diving.
Tampa Prep senior Chris Colwill won the boys diving and will try for a fourth state title at the Hall of Fame Aquatic Complex. Teammate Chelsea Nauta, an eighth-grader, won the 200 freestyle and 100 backstroke.
Berkeley Prep and Tampa Prep had steady efforts, finishing 2-3 on the girls side and the opposite in the boys standings. Buccaneers junior Andy Helvenston won the 50-yard free and took second in the 100 back.
"Under the conditions, the kids did a good job," Berkeley coach Kevin Rosepapa said. "I thought we all swam pretty well, it's just hard to say because the weather was so bad."

Northeast sweeps meet
TAMPA -- Led by sophomore Brenno Varanda in the boys meet and by excellent depth in the girls meet, Northeast captured both championships at Bobby Hicks Pool Friday night.
Varanda won the 200-yard intermediate medley in 2:01.28, and also swam on the victorious 200- and 400-yard medley relay teams. Chris John, Bobby Angel and John Sadler swept the 100-yard backstroke as Northeast won the district meet for the second consecutive year.
Host Plant finished a distant second among the 13 teams, 66 points back.
Northeast's girls used three top-10 finishes in diving to edge Plant by 16 points.
Plant senior Christine Anseeuw, the defending state champion in the 200 freestyle, won the 50-yard freestyle in 24.59 and the 100 free in 53.51. Anseeuw also was part of the victorious 200-free relay with Sarah Allen, Erica Smith and Alana Brasier.
Osceola's Alex Tilbrook defended his diving title and teammate Lauren Permuy won her first.
