Hillsborough hurdler/jumper Daneesha Davidson has decided to make the short trip up I-4 for college and attend UCF.

She also boasts a PR of 39'1" in the triple jump.

Inclement weather nearly torpedoed the Vernon Korhn Hillsborough County Track and Field Championships Tuesday. The 4x800m got off and a few field events got scored before a deluge and lightning forced everyone indoors. Meet officials elected to postpone the meet until later in the evening and run timed finals. It proved to be the right call as the weather relented and the rest of the meet ran smoothly.
Hillsborough High School has a 1-2 knockout punch in senior Jada Roberson and sophomore Daneesha Davidson. The duo has the scoring potential to keep the Terriers at the top of the team standings in most meets.

Typically, a Hillsborough County-heavy tournament, many area teams split off for the Wharton Invitational, opening up slots for teams like Sebastian River and Tallahassee Godby to mix it up with area teams. The Sebastian River Sharks, at least the girls team, will have a pleasant ride home as they took the team title with 105 points to Tampa’s Freedom with 91.
There is no doubt Florida is one of the most talented states in the country when it comes to track and field.

Green claimed indoor and outdoor national titles in the triple jump, clearing 50 feet in five track and field meets this season, and posting the longest leap in the nation for 2013.
