Cross Country: Nothing slows down Jesuit in elite meet
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 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, coming off an impressive win in the Southern Stars Meet last week at Ed Radice, placed four in the top 32 to again show why it's one of the best teams in the state, regardless of classification.
"The kids have been unbelievable," Maurin said. "They really stepped up."
So did Sickles junior Derek Wehunt, who took fourth (15:58) despite getting lost midway through the race. The Gryphons finished seventh in the race of champions, followed by Chamberlain (12th) and Berkeley Prep (14th), which was led by senior Richard Blake (seventh, 16:07). In the girls ROC, Berkeley Prep took 14th, sparked by the duo of Olivia D'Angelo (32nd, 19:57) and Page Price (33-19:57).
But it was the Wharton girls, with three in the top 11, who stole the show in the girls invitational. Senior Katrina Skinner was the individual champion (19:06), with her sister Kathia (fourth, 20:07) not far behind. The Sickles girls took 11th.
On Friday, Newsome finished second overall in the boys 5K large school race, paced by junior Keegan Bixler, who was third in 16:51.00
