SEMINOLE - The terms wide open and up for grabs do not apply to the Seminole Rotary Invitational.
Wharton used its depth to overwhelm the other 14 girls team. The Wildcats scored 149 points to win for the third time in the past four years. The host Warhawks were second with 83.
The Wildcats won five events and took second in five others.
Natalie Moser, the defending Class 4A state champion in the pole vault, won her signature event despite not having her best showing. She cleared 10 feet, 6 inches, well below her state-winning mark of 12-6. But it still was enough to beat the closest competitor by nearly 2 feet.
Pinellas Park's Dominique Jacobs was the field events MVP. She went 18-4 in the long jump to break a school record and medaled in four other events.
"I was surprised I was able to do this well so soon," Jacobs said.
Sarasota's Brittany Crenshaw, who won the 200 and 400, was the running event MVP.
