Sean Watkins & Antonio Spencer Interview


St. Thomas Aquinas has one of the best sprint groups in the state and they will be featured once again on the track this Saturday at the Dunbar Tigers Classic in Ft. Myers. Two key members among that deep group are Antonio Spencer and Sean Watkins, who both joined us for a pre-race interview. Spencer thrives at the 100-meter dash with a Florida #2 10.43 personal best as the BCAA Championships, while Watkins does better at longer sprints with a Florida #3 time of 21.19 as the BCAA winner.

When they form together with two other teammates, Spencer and Watkins are part of Florida's fastest 4x100 meter relay with a season-best of 41.17, which ranks them fifth nationally. Their relay is seeking their first sub 41-second performance of the season and may put it together this weekend at Dunbar.

Neither senior has signed yet with a college, but with both sprinters enjoying a breakout outdoor season as well as Florida being one of few states with a fairly normal season compared to many others when it comes to Covid restrictions could open doors for them soon.

Most of their meets have breezy with wind-aided times, while tomorrow is expected to be wind-legal with calm winds and warmer day, so great opportunity for them to show out fast times without a strong breeze at their back.
