Wildcat duo frustrated

Published March 27, 2004

GAINESVILLE - In a meet as big as the Florida Relays, disappointment reigns for the most part as only a few will leave the University of Florida satisfied.

Two Wesley Chapel athletes shared each other's disappointment. High jumper Marcus Stewart and 100-meter runner Jasmine Cabrera were two of many who would have liked another chance.

Stewart finished tied for fifth with a jump of 6 feet, 2 inches. But he said he could have done better.

"I really didn't do as well as I would have wanted to," he said. "I usually can get 6-4, but I don't know what to say."

Cabrera said while she was disappointed in failing to qualify for today's final, her mistakes are correctable.

"I'm a little disappointed because I think I could've done a lot better," she said. "I think I need to keep practicing on my start.

Stewart and Cabrera said they plan to build upon Friday's experience.

"We've got to keep practicing," Cabrera said. "We need to focus more, stretch more and just concentrate."
