This week marked the start of the state series as Osceola County teams competed in district competition. We take a look at how they fared as well as what else has been happening around Osceola in the recent weeks.
Just like that we are in the final month of XC 2014. A large round of invitationals await teams this week, before conference championships begin. The conference titles might not seem like a big deal in the scheme of things, but they can help build the momentum teams needs as they begin the playoff push toward the state series. I love playoffs in every sport. It pushes everybody to be at your best, or you might be watching your rivals take home season accolades that you so despearatley wanted yourself. The OBC schools were all over Florida this week, lets see how they fared.
In all my years of watching sports, this was one of the most exciting weekends I can remember. Most of us spent the morning in Titusville at the FLRunners Invite and then hopefully found some time to watch some great college football afterwards. The Race of Champions set some teams apart, as some rose to the challenge and others couldn’t overcome the mud. It was a thrilling race to watch as Ryan Rodriguez joins the cast of Belen stars as the ROC champ. The ladies are watching a potenial dynasty in the making as Pine Crest takes the title and are led by a middle schooler in Tsion Yared. Now on to what happened here in Osceola County.
All the area teams met up for Bulldog Palooza (St. Cloud Invitational) in St Cloud on a wet course. The ladies, except Grace Miller of St. Cloud who finished first, got to see a top tier Timber Creek girls team dominate, while the boys watched an equally impressive Liberty team do virtually the same thing. Many Central Florida teams had to adjust practice due to the typical afternoon thunderstorms that seem to hit right about this time. Most coaches will claim they enjoy the sloppy conditions, feeling that it might give someone an edge.
It’s back for year two! Runners across the state are now in full gear. However, many are still trying to find the groove of where their team stands. From the coaches standpoint, many runners are likely still out of shape and not quite ready for the next month that will determine who runs for a title and who stays home. Here is your school by school breakdown for our seven schools in the Orange Belt Conference.
We are on the brink of the playoffs for track season. Schools are trying to get in those last tune ups before the state series begins and legacies get established. Osceola County held its conference championships Tuesday evening at St. Cloud.
Zach Arguello has been helping Donald Lamb all season long get videos and photos from around Osceola County and Central Florida. He was at it again at the 2014 Orange Belt Conference Championships at St. Cloud High School. Check out over 600 photos from "TheZacAttack".
The OBC championships are finally here, and the state series begins very shortly as well. It's playoff time! Team by team weekly recaps to follow.
All of our local teams were in action this week, most of them at the St. Cloud invitational. There were 25 teams who competed at St. Cloud this weekend, mostly schools from Orange, Osceola, and Brevard counties, but a team from Georgia joined in the fun as well.
The season is just over halfway done. Only a few more regular season weekends remain before the conference championships start. Following that is the always exciting state series as teams make their march toward Tallahassee. A simple chance to run at the state meet is a goal for some schools, while others expect to be there and leave with a trophy. The final month lies before us all, stay healthy and enjoy the ride.
The cross country season is in high gear as we are a mere four days away from the biggest races this season (thus far) at FLR 14. This past week had some nice meets as well as a precursor to the next few weekends ahead.

There were a few meets this past week which featured OBC schools. First up was the Poinciana Invite on Wednesday, September 11th, held on campus at Poinciana High school, also site of the OBC championships in October. Liberty, Poinciana, Osceola, and St. Cloud competed in this weekday meet.
This past weekend, five area teams traveled to Trotters Park for the Edgewater Invitational. In total there were more than 30 teams from all over Central Florida that made the trek to the greater downtown Orlando area for a Friday evening race in the second weekend of the cross country season.
Being a PE coach was my goal since I was in high school myself. I wasn’t exactly sure what sport I would enjoy the most, but it just so happened that track became my favorite. Osceola county (Orange Belt Conference) elementary schools have a well established track & field program in addition to a strong XC program.
The boys CC team at Poincianna finished last out of 16 teams in the Orange Belt Conference last year. Two weeks ago, after an attitude change and work over the summer, the team finished third in the conference.
It was a long, tough year at Poinciana High School. The school was devastated by last year
