Bailey Hertenstein and Kayley Delay came into the 4A Cross Country Finals with the top two times regardless of class. In the end it was Hertenstein who came away with her second straight title. On the team front, Steinbrenner ended a two year run by Winter Park at the top of the podium. Matt Doyle of Winter Springs won his first state title to end his senior cross country season, while St. Thomas Aquinas took their third team trophy in four years. Andy Warrener recaps the class 4A meet.
In the state's largest classification 4A, three of the four state champion individuals and teams from 2015 have a good chance to repeat in 2016. The easiest perhaps is in the team races where the Winter Park girls are looking for their third straight while the St. Thomas Aquinas boys are favorites to go back to back with their core nucleus. Bailey "Hurricane" Hertenstein is the reigning girls champion, is ranked number one, and has lost one race in her whole career as a junior. On the boy's side the title is up for grabs with a group of runners all relatively close in time and skill. We take an in-depth look at the 4A meet.
Bailey Hertenstein smashed the Holloway Park course record in a time of 18:13.83 with freshman teammate in second place with a time of 18:58.22. On the boy's side it came down to a sprint to the finish with Jordan Gonzalez of Sarasota giving the Sailors a regional champion for the second straight year. Steinbrenner girls dominated with 46 pts. while the Lakewood Ranch boys edged out Newsome by four points 85 to 89. Andy Warrener recaps all the action from 4A Region 2.

Our XC team scores show an all classes battle would give Niceville a three point advantage.

The 20th Annual Land O' Lakes Gator Invitational, recently renamed the Keppel Invite after late Gator coach Kris Keppel went off on Saturday at Crews Lake Park in Spring Hill.

Preseason Jamborees are over and the regular season for cross country is finally here. Plant City High School played host to one of the first meets on the calendar, the East Hillsborough Invitational, and the theme was dominating performances.

This year's Crusader Gallop 5k was once again held at Sydney Dover Trails. Always known as a tough course this year was no different. This year there were even more challenges to the course. There have been wild boar tear up a good bit of the starting field so runners had to maneuver through a narrow start. Runners this year had to navigate up a 150 meter long hill, once at the start and again just before the 2 mile mark. The back part of the course a 1k loop proved most difficult. After heavy rains most of the day Friday there were many parts of that section under water or just down right muddy. The course is hill, sandy in parts and uneven.
No one besides Plant, Hillsborough and Wharton has won the Vernon Khorn Hillsborough County track championships, boys or girls, for the last three years.

At the gateway between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, you will find the small island of Barbados. The island nation is home to a little over 250,000 people, around a third of whom live in and around the capital of Bridgetown. While pockets of poverty exist today, the country has enjoyed growth over the past three decades fueled by tourism, banking, and manufacturing. As a child, Newsome coach Orlando Greene remembers the rural life he enjoyed there. Each day the former Olympian would run three or four miles to school with his fellow classmates, kicking a soccer ball along the way or simply racing.
