Around Osceola: The Calm Before The Storm Donald Lamb Oct 16, 2014

Just like that we are in the final month of XC 2014. A large round of invitationals await teams this week, before conference championships begin. The conference titles might not seem like a big deal in the scheme of things, but they can help build the momentum teams needs as they begin the playoff push toward the state series. I love playoffs in every sport. It pushes everybody to be at your best, or you might be watching your rivals take home season accolades that you so despearatley wanted yourself. The OBC schools were all over Florida this week, lets see how they fared.

Around Osceola: Statement Weekend Donald Lamb Oct 7, 2014

In all my years of watching sports, this was one of the most exciting weekends I can remember. Most of us spent the morning in Titusville at the FLRunners Invite and then hopefully found some time to watch some great college football afterwards. The Race of Champions set some teams apart, as some rose to the challenge and others couldn’t overcome the mud. It was a thrilling race to watch as Ryan Rodriguez joins the cast of Belen stars as the ROC champ. The ladies are watching a potenial dynasty in the making as Pine Crest takes the title and are led by a middle schooler in Tsion Yared. Now on to what happened here in Osceola County.

Around Osceola: The Effects Of Weather Donald Lamb Oct 1, 2014

All the area teams met up for Bulldog Palooza (St. Cloud Invitational) in St Cloud on a wet course. The ladies, except Grace Miller of St. Cloud who finished first,  got to see a top tier Timber Creek girls team dominate, while the boys watched an equally impressive Liberty team do virtually the same thing. Many Central Florida teams had to adjust practice due to the typical afternoon thunderstorms that seem to hit right about this time. Most coaches will claim they enjoy the sloppy conditions, feeling that it might give someone an edge.

Liberty Boys, Timber Creek Girls Dominate STC invitational Donald Lamb Sep 27, 2014

A total of 14 different teams traveled to St. Cloud Saturday morning for the annual St. Cloud Invitational. They were treated to comfortable fall weather, hometown winners, and a puddle riddled course. Rain altered practice for several teams this week, but it gave the course some added challenges. 

Around Osceola: The Season Has Begun Donald Lamb Sep 23, 2014

It’s back for year two! Runners across the state are now in full gear. However, many are still trying to find the groove of where their team stands. From the coaches standpoint, many runners are likely still out of shape and not quite ready for the next month that will determine who runs for a title and who stays home. Here is your school by school breakdown for our seven schools in the Orange Belt Conference.

3A State Finals Virtual Meet (Based On Regional Results) Todd Grasley Apr 29, 2014

According to our virtual meet only three of the seventeen events do not have Miami Northwestern's Lady Bulls scoring points. That is pretty impressive and shows the depth and versatility of Coach Carmen Jackson's squad! On the boy's side, the nation's top sprinter Kendal Williams is looking like his normal self after regional victories, and should post some fast times in the sprints. Speaking of fast times, can Sukhi Khosla and Nick Morken do one better and beat their marks of 4:06 and 4:07? Lastly, will anyone stop Miami Northwestern from sweeping the team titles. Four to five teams should battle for the top two spots.

3A Region 2: Liberty Boys, Lake Nona Girls Claim First Ever Regional Crowns Donald Lamb Apr 24, 2014

Lake Minneola has hosted several postseason meets this season. The final edition for the track season was Wednesday when it played host to the 3A Region 2 championships.

Liberty Boys, Lake Nona Girls Lock Down 3A District 6 Todd Grasley Apr 18, 2014

Playoffs? Playoffs? It's here my friend and ohh how exciting they are. Just take a second to listen to the famous words of former Colts coach Jim Mora. District week begins the road to state. The big schools have almost completed the district round as the smaller schools finish regional competition. 

Inside Look: Liberty Boys Track Team Donald Lamb Mar 21, 2014

Every coach starts to analyze the upcoming season well before it even comes close to starting. The new season begins pretty much the day the previous one ends. You do some evaluating of why you are not standing on the podium in Jacksonville, or why you don’t have athletes competing at the state meet in the first place. The state meet might be a tall task for some, maybe regional champ or even district champ seems more feasible. 

Wharton Girls, Liberty Boys Clean House At Kowboy Invitational Donald Lamb Mar 9, 2014

Florida has some big meets. For those familiar with the track circuit, Bob Hayes Invitational, Louie Bing Classic, & Sam Burley HOF are some of the biggest meets around. The colleges step up and offer Steinbrenner (USF), Florida Relays & the FSU Relays to the mix as well. Go ahead and add the Kowboy Invite to the “big FLA meets” list too.

Liberty & Kathleen Run Through Cloud, Victor Clears 6'10 Donald Lamb Mar 2, 2014

The season is full swing now, and most teams have a few meets under their belts (and some marks in the Milesplit database). Coach Kevin Harkema of St Cloud HS welcomed 25 teams to its friendly confines for the 2nd annual St Cloud Invitational. After hosting several championship meets, this event is already double what is was last year. March got started with gorgeous weather that made for a great day at the track.

3A Boys Team Scores: Liberty Looks To Make School History Todd Grasley Jan 31, 2014

Liberty High School could make history at the 3A state championship. The Chargers are looking for their first boys' team championship ever with a strong showing the first week of May at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville. Leading the way is junior sprinter Devarius Turner and two of the top jumpers in the state Marion Brown and Joshua Wilson. Gainesville is also strong, but will be without stud Tony James who will be 19 and too old to compete. Boyd Anderson also loses  their star athlete, hurdler Deron Gordon who has transferred to Northeast High School (Oakland Park). Can Gainesville overcome the loss of James and improve on their third place finish? This could be one of the closest team battles of the weekend!

The season is just over halfway done. Only a few more regular season weekends remain before the conference championships start.  Following that is the always exciting state series as teams make their march toward Tallahassee. A simple chance to run at the state meet is a goal for some schools, while others expect to be there and leave with a trophy. The final month lies before us all, stay healthy and enjoy the ride.
