Mitchell seniors Elaina and Claudia Cancello will both run track and cross country at the University of Tampa, Mustangs coach Jeff Leavey said Thursday in an email.

The Cancello twins are two of Pasco County’s top athletes. Claudia qualified for the Class 3A state meet in cross country each of the last two years and finished eighth in November. At last month’s Sunshine Athletic Conference track meet, she won the 3,200 meters and was runnerup in the 1,600.

Elaina placed 12th at the Class 3A, District 6 cross country meet and has run some shorter races this spring in track.

Both are accomplished swimmers, too, and earned honorable-mention all-North Suncoast honors in that sport.
