2A-5 cross country: Freshman leads CCC girls to second place

LUTZ — Following Thursday's Class 2A, District 5 meet at Lake Park, Clearwater Central Catholic freshman Laura Nauert said she employed a simple philosophy during the race.

"I tried not to get passed," Nauert said.

For the most part, she succeeded.

By finishing in 20 minutes, 49 seconds, Nauert placed fourth, the best among all Pinellas County girls in the event.

Keyed by her effort, the Marauders, with 89 points, were second behind the Academy of the Holy Names (53). St. Petersburg Catholic (154), which was sixth, also advanced to regionals.

"I'm pleased," Nauert said. "I just went out and ran my best."

CCC's Domenica Owens (21:13) was the county's only other top-10 finish in the girls meet. She was seventh.

On the boys side, Tobias Probst of CCC (17:02) ran a strong race to place fourth. But as a team, the Marauders' seventh-place showing wasn't enough to move on. St. Petersburg Catholic was 11th. Jesuit, which had five runners in the top eight, easily won.

Tigers senior Jordan Schilit, who has spent much of his prep career in the shadows of teammate Connor Revord, took center stage when Revord succumbed to a minor stomach ailment in the final mile. Schilit won after recording the third-fastest time of his career (16:08).

"It feels great," Schilit said. "I ran pretty well."

The AHN girls had three top-10 finishes and seven of the top 19, led by Selena Castillo's (21:05) sixth-place performance.

Boys team scores Jesuit 23, Robinson 78, Frostproof 84, Bartow 116, Lennard 131, Sebring 150, CC Catholic 219; Individual Scores — Schilit (Jes) 16:08, Bauer (Seb) 16:31, Trimble (Jes) 16:51, Probst (CCC) 17:02, Lopez (Jes) 17:05, Parker (Jes) 17:06, Kempton (Fp) 17:09, Martin (Jes) 17:16, Rivard (Jes) 17:18, Epperson (Rob) 17:23, Aguilar (Fp) 17:44, Madrid (Bar) 17:51, Barreda (Len) 17:54, Taylor (TC) 17:55, Gibson (Rob) 17:55

Girls team scores — Academy of the Holy Names 53, CC Catholic 89, Tampa Catholic 95, Bartow 108, Sebring 144, SP Catholic 154; Individual Scores — K. McHugh (Bar) 19:49, B. McHugh (Bar) 20:13, Sullivan (TC) 20:21, Nauert (CCC) 20:49, Fricia (TC) 20:55, Castillo (AHN) 21:05, Owens (CCC) 21:13, Goldberger (Rob) 21:29, Snyder (AHN) 21:33, Hahn (AHN) 21:55, McIntyre (Seb) 21:57, Copley (Seb) 21:58, Barbato (AHN) 22:04, Rayley (Rid) 22:08, Socias (AHN) 22:10
