Scouting Reports - Sarasota Girls

The Sailors girls are coming off of a strong cross country and track season. With the Sailors placing 13th at the 2012 3A Cross Country State Finals and only graduating their 5th runner, the Lady Sailors are really looking like an unstoppable force this year. Leading the team is the talented Angelina Grebe, who placed 16th last year individually at states as a sophomore. Sarasota is also bringing in some strong freshman including Mackenzie Brown and Sage Lyons. Lyons placed seconnd at the Sarasota County Middle School Championships in the 1600m run with a time of 5:43.

Overall the squad islooking to potentially have their top five runners in the sub-20 minute range led by  Grebe, Amber Kerry and Allison Wright. Many of the cross country runners composed a good 4x800 team that qualified for states this past track season.
“Our ultimate goal is to get in the top five at states this year. We are going to have a really strong top five not only physically, but mentally We all are really close and like a family," says team captain Angelina Grebe. “Our coach,Coach Stevenson, is a really great coach and he trains us well so we thank him for our success so far! I'm really excited for this year knowing our team has put in so much hard work and I know we'll do great!”

Coach Stevenson Says...

“Our team is looking really good so far. We're having a great turnout for our summer workouts, our tempo workouts are being hit on spot for our times. We are getting our long runs and staying healthy! Our top five runners are injury-free. I have high expectations for them this season for their times, It's looking like our top five average will be sub-20 minutes. Our goal for counties this year is to defend our title. While we were moved into a more competitive district we are still hoping to get first. As for regionals there is great competition like Estero and Lakewood Ranch so we are shooting for runner-up. As for States our goal is to get top five. Our team is doing awesome so far and I'm very excited to see the turnout!"
