Suber gets moving for East Bay

Published March 14, 2004

TAMPA - East Bay's Stanley Suber is used to starting over.

Having moved from Mississippi just before his junior year, he had to prove himself as a football player for the Indians, eventually earning the starting position as a receiver and cornerback.

In Saturday's Steak n Shake Invitational at the University of South Florida, his field in the 400 was forced to re-start after a competitor jumped the gun.

It did not hurt Stanley, turning in an impressive kick in the last 100 yards to give his team the 10 points for a first-place finish.

"I think re-starting the race helped me out," Suber said. "My heartbeat started going up and it got me ready to go."

Suber and Jeremy Dye, who placed fourth in the pole vault, provided all the scoring for East Bay, which finished 15th in the second-annual meet in which athletes from 133 schools entered.

Gainesville Buchholz won with 97 points, edging Miami Northwestern (85). Lakewood Ranch was third with 43 points and Wharton was fourth with 36 to finish as the county's top team.

"This meet was very important to me," said Suber, who moved because of his father's job with the Coast Guard.

"Not being from the state, I wasn't sure how the competition was out there. Now I'll know what I'm facing."

Miami Northwestern won the girls division with 150 points; Orlando Oak Ridge was second with 127. Tampa Bay Tech was the county's best with 35.

"I'm satisfied with the way our girls performed," TBT's second-year coach Barbara Long said. "It was good for us to see how our girls do outside the county."

The Titans' top performers were Ashley Parsons, who placed third in the 200; Shenika Howell, second in the shot put and fifth in the discus; and Yvonne Perez, third in the 800 run.

Sickles, which finished ninth overall, showed its strength with youth in the middle distance events with sophomores Marissa Hatcher placing sixth in the 800 and Shannon Kelly placing third in the two-mile run.
