  • Scouting Report: Belen Jesuit Boys

    Belen Jesuit has been a powerhouse in boy's cross country over the last decade. The Wolverines have won seven of the last eight state titles, including 2013 where they beat by runner-up Chiles by 30 points. Coach Frankie Ruiz's squad loses three of it's top four, but brings back Ryan Rodriguez, who has experience being on previous state title teams, and will lead a group of juniors, which Ruiz calls the strength of this team. The team will face a tough test in November from the likes of Chiles and Leon who both have very skilled teams. Find out more about Belen and their quest for number eight in our Scouting Report.

  • In His Own Words: Nic Jacobsen - Race Week

    I can’t believe that the season has truly started and results from pre/early season races are starting to pile in already! The past two weeks since I have started school have been very up and down for me both physically and mentally. Between enduring a boatload of texts, quizzes, and essays, attending meetings for student council and other clubs, leading the cheers at the first home football and volleyball games of the year, training, and (of course) getting sick after the first week of school, I have hardly even had a minute to think about racing!

  • Marquez Records US#4 15:23 In Season Opening 'Rust Buster' At Wickham Park Jamboree

    Brandon Marquez called his 2014season opener at the Wickham Park Jamboree a "rust buster". Marquez, a junior at Timber Creek who has decided to compete this season unattached, definitely didn't have any rust this weekend. The 2012 4A Cross Country Finals runner-up sprinted out to the front of the group and never looked back, dismantling the field in a new meet record of 15:23 and posting the fourth fastest time in the country (tie with Levi Thornett of Alaska).

  • Sinclaire Johnson, Steven Cross Clinch Wins At Mike Gibson Summertime Run

    The 34th Annual Mike Gibson Summertime marked the first race for many Central Florida harriers. Over a dozen teams headed to Lake Mary for some heated competition in the Saturday morning heat and humidity. A new course layout, didn't produce the fastest times of the season, and some runners even thought it might a little closer to 3.3 or 3.4 miles rather than the standard 5k distance of 3.1 miles. The races ended on the track with Sinclaire Johnson of Lake Brantley and Steven Cross of Merritt Island emerging from Greenwood Lakes Park and crossing the finish line first in 19:36.30 and 16:28.70. Flrunners.com was on-site with photos, race video, interviews, results, and a complete recap of all the action!

  • Pedraza, Molloy, Making The Roads Look Easy At John Clay 5k

    Runners from across Collier County including Barron Collier, Naples, Lely, CSN, Golden Gate, and Gulf Coast competed in the John Clay 5k on the streets of Naples. The course, just a tad over 5k (3.16 miles), served as a tune up for many area runners, despite being run entirely on the road. The course winds through a neighborhood and has one bridge with a slight incline to cover.

  • XC Spotlight: Carlin Berryhill - Coral Reef

  • In His Own Words: Zack Bias - Stronger Every Week

    Hey flrunners! My name is Zack Bias and I am a senior at Creekside High School in Saint Johns, Florida. For starters I would like to thank Todd for giving me the opportunity to blog for you guys this season. Before I get into all the running stuff I want to tell you all a bit about myself. Like many other  cross country runners, I am an incredibly weird person. I have a wardrobe of flashy pajama pants that I like to wear to school from time to time. I am known to blast some boy band music from my car to get amped up before practices and of course I also have one of the weirdest hobbies out there... running!

  • Scouting Reports Sarasota girls

    Family. Coach John Stevenson says no matter how much talent his Sarasota girl's cross country team has, they have to believe in each other and support each other. That was the key take away from a 2013 season that saw the Sailors capture the 3A runner-up trophy and fall just 13 points shy of knocking off Estero. The only person that doesn't return from that squad is Emily Harding, who has graduated and is now running for the University of South Carolina.

  • Scouting Report: Fort Walton Beach Boys

    A year after finishing third at the 3A Cross Country Finals behind Belen Jesuit and Chiles, Fort Walton Beach will have a tough road ahead of them if they want to compete at that level in 2014. The Vikings proved you don't need a front runner to dominate, but instead used a pack running philosophy to post the fastest 1-5 split in the class of 22 seconds. Unfortunately, the team loses four runnerse from that team and will rely on senior Trey LaNasa who was 22nd at last year's state meet to carry the load.
