Lecanto strong 2nd in 2A Region 2 meet

Kate Wheeler and Kylene Colasanti power the Panthers.

BROOKSVILLE -- Lecanto's one-two punch of Kate Wheeler and Kylene Colasanti was nearly enough to lead the Panthers to a regional championship. Instead, they'll have to settle for second place and a strong contingent at next week's Class 2A state meet in Coral Springs.

"I'm pleased with the results, but I'm disappointed for some of the ones that didn't make it," Panthers coach Freddie Bullock said. "Overall, we improved in some areas. I don't even keep a score sheet -- I just keep up with my kids."

Wheeler won the high jump and triple jump and finished second behind Colasanti in the 300-meter hurdles. Colasanti was third in the high jump and narrowly missed qualifying in the 100 hurdles, where Wheeler was scratched by a false start.

Titusville Astronaut led the Panthers by five points entering the final event, the 4x400 relay. Rockledge ran away with the boys' title, beating runner-up Astronaut by 52 points. Fourth-place Central finished best among the North Suncoast entries.

Other regional champions included Central's 4x100 relay of Tiffany Mobley, Alaya Smiley, Jaimie Costanzo and Leiko Munford, who will compete in the state meet for the fourth straight year. Citrus' Myesha Hollis won the long jump (18 feet, 0 inches) and finished second in the triple jump (34-43/4). Hernando's Raquel Lao qualified for the third straight year in the discus, winning with a mark 119-31/2, and Citrus' Rick Miller won the 800 meters in 1:56.39.
