Tigers roll, Wildcats edge Jags

Jesuit and Wharton earn victories at the Tigers Trails meet.

Published October 15, 2003

TAMPA - Jesuit hosted a cross country meet, and a practice session broke out.

Or at least that could be the perception after it placed five in the top 10 of the Tigers Trails on Tuesday at Al Lopez Park.

The girls race was more competitive as Wharton edged Academy of the Holy Names. In the boys race, junior Andy Biladeau led a pack of Tigers that captured the top three spots. Biladeau, who led throughout, finished the 5-kilometer course in 15 minutes, 40.44 seconds. He was followed by junior Will Sievers (16:13.21) and sophomore James Osborne (16:16.24).

"It was a team-building day," Biladeau said. "The team was the main focus on the first 2 miles. Then I really wanted to run a good third mile and work on the last part of the race."

The Tigers also took seventh (Andrew Boza) and ninth (Josh Evans). Wharton had top 10 runners in Paul Pakidis and Jose Rodriguez to place second, 44 points behind. Riverview's Matt Sprigg was the highest non-Jesuit finisher, placing fourth in 16:24.78. Sickles' Shannon Kelly won the girls race by four seconds, but Academy and Wharton battled throughout. Academy's Aileen Fletcher and Sara Petrick placed second and third, respectively. But the Jaguars had no other runners in the top 19 as Wharton won 63-90.

The Wildcats were led by Kristin Galbraith, who finished fifth in 20:08.43, and Tiffanie Saxton, 10th in 20:25.38. The key to their victory was their other runners, Maria Cevallos (13th) and Erica Garrish (14th).
