2A-3 meet has no surprises


© St. Petersburg Times, published April 21, 2001

INVERNESS -- After comparing the regular-season results of district teams, most coaches in Class 2A, District 3 came to the following conclusion: If everything went as expected, the Lecanto girls and Citrus boys would win their third consecutive district title.

So when it happened, nobody was surprised.

Behind 10 first-place finishes, the Lecanto girls scored 194 points to top Citrus (131), Dunnellon (78), North Marion (60) and Crystal River (45). The Citrus boys (181) beat out North Marion (150), Crystal River (98), Wildwood (38), Lecanto (31) and Dunnellon (23).

Kate Wheeler led Lecanto with wins in the high jump, triple jump and 100-meter hurdles. Nicole Mailloux (800, 1,600) won twice, and Lecanto added firsts in the 400 (Liz Witherspoon), 300 hurdles (Kylene Colasanti), 3,200 (Deidra Witherspoon), 4x400 and 4x800.

Citrus' Myesha Hollis won the long jump, 100 and 200.

"They really did well," Lecanto girls coach Freddie Bullock said.

The Citrus boys won three field events, one sprint, three distance events and two relays. Tony Lyons led the effort with wins in the 1,600 and 3,200. Other wins came from Mike Bass (400), Mike Brown, (high jump), Jamal Galloway (long jump), Rick Miller (800) and John Rogers (shot put).

"It went exactly the way I thought it would," Citrus boys coach Tom Darby.

RAM INVITATIONAL: Jim Vitale and Lizzy Leigh took their final bows at their home track.

Vitale won the 800 (1:56), 1,600 (4:28) and 3,200 (9:48) while Leigh won the 800 (2:27) and 1,600 (5:35) at Ram Booster Stadium.

The Ram girls won, scoring 2911/2 points. The boys results were not available at press time.

Land O'Lakes Godfrey Pestana won the 110 hurdles (15.34) and 300 (41.43) despite falling during the race, hitting his head and rolling over twice.
