Vernon F. Korhn Hillsborough County Track Championships

At Jefferson High
When: Tuesday, 1 p.m. - field events and 4X800; 2 p.m. - running prelims; 5 p.m. - running finals.
Outlook: The annual county track championships are a great meet before it gets to the do-or-die stakes of the district, region and state meets. It’s a chance for all the county’s top athletes to fight for local bragging rights. Last year Plant won both the girls and boys titles, but this year the Panthers’ boys and girls should get plenty of fight from Wharton, Freedom, Hillsborough, Steinbrenner, Newsome and King among others. One of this year’s most interesting races will begin the day when Steinbrenner and Bloomingdale face off in the boys’ 4X800 relay, where both teams are expected to break 8 minutes. After that race, it should be pretty tight in most races through the rest of the day.
