Plant’s Scarlett Fox and Sickles’ Abdin Fator both grabbed fifth place to help their West teams to the runners-up spot of Saturday’s FACA Senior All-Star Cross Country meet at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee.
Fox covered the 5-kilometer course in 19 minutes, 25 seconds while Newsome’s Brianna Jackson was 10th in 19:34. Also on the West girls team from Hillsborough County was Newsome’s Stephanie Cajas, who was 17th in 20:08. Their squad, coached by Orlando Greene of Newsome, scored 47 points to take second behind the East team, which totaled 33.
The girls race’s overall individual winner was the South’s Ellyn Snider (18:43) of Boca Raton Spanish River.
In the boys meet, Fator ran 16:07 to finish tops for the West team, which lost by just a point to the East. West coach Gail Battone of Sickles said her No. 2 runner, Bobby Ormsby, twisted an ankle and did not finish. Had Ormsby been able to finish, the West likely would have won easily, Battone said.
Also competing for the West boys team from county were Newsome’s Lars Benner (sixth, 16:08), Steinbrenner’s Matt Magee (11th, 16:20), Tyler Lima (22nd, 16:44) and Tanner Biles (23rd, 16:52). The West also boasted the race’s individual winner, Aesop Brown of Fort Myers, who ran 15:39.
