Cross Country: Jesuit boys romp; Soto top area finisher
By JOE SMITH
Published October 7, 2007
Jesuit cross country coach Greg Maurin admitted he was a little concerned. He wondered how his Tigers would respond to pushing themselves through a rigorous, fourth straight week of racing - and four big weekend meets.
But by the end, when the Tigers left Saturday's prestigious Flrunners Invitational in Titusville with the team title in the race of champions, Maurin left with one word: "impressed."
Led by star junior Connor Revord (ninth, 16:10), the Tigers topped the star-studded field, taking first in a meet for the fourth week in a row. Jesuit placed four in the top 32 to again show why it's one of the best teams in the state, regardless of classification.
On the North Suncoast, Land O'Lakes junior Felix Soto was the highest finisher in the ROC (14th, 16:35.55). In the girls varsity open 5K, Ridgewood junior Jillian Browne was 22nd in 22:26.32.
On Friday, Wiregrass Ranch freshman Ariel Grey turned in an eighth-place finish (20:45.42) in the girls small school race. The Bulls finished sixth overall. The Gulf girls, paced by senior Jaci Pustelnik (14th, 21:15.55) finished sixth in the large school race.
Walt Disney World Classic: At Disney's Wide World of Sports, Central, paced by senior Alex Yettaw (30th, 17:55.36) and junior Shadi Toro (36th, 18:03.92), placed eighth overall in Class 3A boys 5K.
In the boys 2A race, Nature Coast, led by senior Alex Mason (27th, 17:55.88), was sixth overall. Pasco sophomore Leeann Eble placed 10th in the girls 2A race in 20:05.49. The Pirates finished eighth overall, while Nature Coast was 10th.
