WESLEY CHAPEL -- Jesuit acquitted itself well at Thursday's Class 2A, Region 3 meet at Wesley Chapel, taking second with 96 points, 15 behind Clewiston.

Leading the way was the distance unit. Jesuit was 29 points behind Clewiston with two events left. But it finished one-two-three in 3,200, led by Andy Biladeau (9 minutes, 38.37 seconds), Colin Strickland (9:49.74) and Matt Scott (9:50.46), to cut it to five. Jesuit's 4x800 relay of Chris DeClue, Strickland, Scott and Biladeau won in 8:15.58.

Bucs make comeback

INDIAN ROCKS CHRISTIAN -- Berkeley Prep rallied for the title on the last lap of the last event, the 4x400. Berkeley finished with 72 points, outdistancing Admiral Farragut (70) and Northside Christian (60).

Farragut led by eight. But because it didn't field a relay, Berkeley had to take second to tie and first to win.

Mike Scannon, Rolf Steier and Chris Acton-Maher built a 10-meter lead for anchor Tommy Kerr, who held on.


Blake wins, barely

TAMPA -- Needing to win the event and have Armwood finish fourth or worse, Blake won the 4x440, and King edged Armwood for third, giving the Yellow Jackets the title by a half-point.

Jefferson, mostly behind its sprinters and jumpers, was third with 931/2, followed by King (891/2) and Plant (84).


Sarasota Riverview coasts

DURANT -- Behind the potent duo of A.J. and Nate Brown, who had four first-place finishes between them, Sarasota Riverview captured six first-place finishes, five seconds and six thirds to coast to the title by 58 points.


Balance keys Wharton

CLEARWATER -- Wharton dominated, scoring 202 points to win its second straight district title at Clearwater. Balance was a big reason. The Wildcats placed in the top four in all but one event and won eight.

The winners for Wharton were: Sam Saslow (pole vault), Adam Durham (110 hurdles), Kejuan Young (triple jump), Laphonso Ray (100 and 200 meters), Jeffrey Johnson (300 hurdles), Keon Young (high jump) and the 4x400 relay.
