St. Petersburg Catholic and Clearwater Central Catholic battled each other for the top two girls spots at the Class 2A, District 10 meet on Wednesday at Sarasota Booker.

The Barons, thanks to their depth, won the team title, scoring 125 points, 8.5 more than the Marauders. It is SPC's first girls district title in at least 10 years.

"I kept preaching to them how important depth is and they bought into it," Barons coach Phil Secord said. "We scored 40 points off individual titles and the other 85 came on secondary points."

SPC had four individual champions: Marina Townsend (high jump), Morgan Paul (pole vault), Kelsey Dougherty-Howard (100 hurdles) and Katherine Haddad (3200).

CCC also had four individual winners, Lindsay Cooper (400), Kelly Shanahan (300 hurdles), Kaelyn Kenner (800) and Domenica Owens (1,600), and took first in the 4x400 and 4x800 relays.

The difference was in the field events, where the Barons had at least one top-five place-winner in each event.
