Short-staffed Eagle Girls Yield to West Orange, Gulf Boys Edge Osceola Andy Warrener Oct 11, 2014

The 5th Annual Anclote Sharks Invitational Saturday was overshadowed by the FSU Pre-State meet in Tallahassee, but no one told that to the East Lake girls who took the top three spots. However, with only four runners competing, their team score couldn't stick. Instead it would be West Orange taking the girls team title with 28 points to runner-up Palm Harbor with 64. West Orange had two top 10 finishers with Megan Hannah taking fifth in 21:23.1 and Alexandra Miller taking seventh in 21:24.2. 

Saint Leo's Small School Environment Suits Gulf Standout Kari Grippo Todd Grasley Jan 27, 2014

Gulf senior Kari Grippo ended her high school cross country career with a fifth place showing at the 2A Cross Country Finals and will trade her green and white for green and gold as she joins the Saint Leo University program in the fall of 2014. The school is NCAA Division 2 and just a 40 minute drive from New Port Richey. Grippo who received both academic and athletic scholarships and plans to major in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Leadership says the Lions felt like the perfect fit.

A Ferrari In The Wiregrass Ralph Epifanio Oct 24, 2011

When I first saw the name of this meet’s location—Crews Lake Wilderness Park--I figured I’d wear my buckskins, and bring my birch bark canoe and axe. But that idea was tempered by what appeared on their website, where Pasco County Parks proudly announced its highlights as being a(n) “observation tower, bird houses, bike path, nature trail, botanical garden, playground (and not just any kind, but a BIG one), outdoor amphitheater, free rides on the Central Pasco and Gulf Railroad, and even primitive camping....Well, maybe I’d just bring the axe (in case it turned into a “Camp-o-runna”).

Grippo Proving Skeptics Wrong Todd Grasley Oct 5, 2011

There are some followers of Pasco County high school cross country who insist that Gulf's Kari Grippo isn't that good of a runner. Actually, she is that good. If the recent Gator Invitational is any indication, the sophomore runner is the real deal. Grippo ran the shady course in 18:09. Belleview's Anne-Marie Blaney was second with 18:28, 19 seconds behind Grippo. (via

Warrior of the Week: Arroyo, Grippo Todd Grasley Sep 27, 2011

Colonial junior Andres Arroyo continued his junior season with another impressive performance. For the second straight week Arroyo ran stride for stride with Belen Jesuit standout and Foot Locker finalist Elliot Clemente this time at the UF Mt. Dew Invitational finishing second in a season best 15:37.81.

Grippo Glad To Be Running For Gulf Todd Grasley Aug 9, 2011

Kari Grippo is glad to be running for Gulf High School. She transferred there midway through the year last year from Fivay High School so that she could attend their Health Careers Academy, a program that helps prepare students to enter the medical field. The FHSAA saw the move as one for athletic purposes and a recruiting violation. As a result they ruled her ineligible to participate in track and cross country for the Buccaneers. It was a decision the Grippo's fought, but lost on the regional and state level. She looks at the whole process as a blessing in disguise.
