FORT LAUDERDALE - Tampa Prep coach Rich Rogers describes his 11-year coaching relationship with Chelsea Nauta as symbiotic trust.
After all, he has coached Nauta since she was 6, when she began swimming competitively.
"I wanted to start when I was 4," the junior said. "But mom said no."
Eleven years of partnering up turned into magic Saturday, when Nauta won two Class A titles in the 200- and 500-yard free. Her previous success had come in the 100. Rogers' plan was to have Nauta swim longer distances, building up her endurance, in hopes of getting Nauta to the 2008 Olympics.
"Oh, how I really wanted to swim the 100," Nauta said.
Nauta said she doesn't question Rogers, who has helped her succeed nationally.
"It's important," Nauta said. "To know that Coach has faith in me."
She shaved more than four seconds off her time to finish in 1:47.05 in the 200 and 4:45.12 in the 500 free, automatically qualifying in both as a high school All-American.
She joined teammates Alex Stephen, Crystal Harman and Katie Sienkiewicz on the 200 free relay team that finished sixth (1:41.64), then helped Stephen, Sienkiewicz and Katie Carter on the 400 free relay team that finished eighth (3:40.41).
In Class 2A, Plant freshman Meg Anderson won the 50-yard freestyle in 24.24. In 3A, Riverview's Corinne Showalter, Chelsea Gillespie, Carlyn Lungmus and Blair Collins won the 200-yard free relay with a 1:37.14.
Berkley Prep's Kristen Chimielewski finished sixth in diving with 391.05 points, and teammate Marni Tuchman snagged the last medal with an eighth place and 357 points. Academy of the Holy Names senior Kelley Hug finished second in both of her events (100 fly, 55.32 and 100 backstroke, 56.86).
