Lake Wales sophomore Paul Stafford didn't have a freshman season he'd like to remember. After running 4:18 for 1,500m as an 8th grader and member of the Central Florida Gliders club team, he was hoping to be one of the top youngsters in the state. However, a torn hamstring derailed those plans and had Stafford staying home during the state meet. He's proven he's back after running 16:25 in a recent workout and hopes to shake up the 2A rankings. We caught up with Stafford to talk about his training, the upcoming season, and more.
With all the regional action taking place last week, the 400m final results from the Class 2A Region 3 meet might have slipped under the radar. Making her mark at Berkeley Prep in Tampa last Thursday, was Lake Wales sophomore Mariah Walker. Walker has come, seemingly out of nowhere, to take over the best 400m time in the state of Florida and the third-best time in the United States this season. Lined up against 2014 400m state champ Janae Caldwell of Spoto, Walker surged out in front.
