WINTER PARK - For Episcopal track and football standout Garrett Scantling, it was a day of great success and a little disappointment at the Class 2A state track and field meet Friday at Showalter Field in Winter Park.Add in a big decision the day before, and it's been a memorable weekend.Scantling won his first-state championship when he cleared 15 feet in the pole vault. He narrowly missed at 15-6, but was still a foot higher than all but one other competitor.In the high jump, Scantling cleared 6-6 but missed all three attempts at 6-8 to finish fifth.

Saturday turned out not to be the record-setter Wesley Chapel's Hunter Joyer had hoped for. Still, Joyer's performance was a fitting cap to a storied high school career for the Wildcats senior. (via www.tampabay.com)
Deidric Dukes is back, helps team to 4x400 state title.
Schappert ends her high school career with a big night, two come-from-behind victories.
The South Fort Myers star and Clemson signee won the 200 in a time of 21.11. He also was second in the 100 and ran on the schools 4x4 team that placed second as well.
The senior from Episcopal talks about his performance in the pole vault and high jump as well as his recent college decision.
Junior Alphonso Legree wins the high jump with a leap of 6-10.
The Jones sophomore had an impressive campaign winning the 100 (10.69), anchoring the winning 4x1 team in a personal best and US#5 (40.94), and finishing second in the 200 meters (21.35).
The Lake Wales senior capped off a stellar career winning gold in the 100, 200, 4x1, and long jump. That makes 11 total golds in her four years of high school.
Octavious Freeman is still motivated. The three-time defending state champion in the 100- and 200-meter dash, it would seem the Lake Wales' senior has accomplished all there is at the high school level — especially after she added a long jump title last year. (via TheLedger.com)
