2A-5 cross country: Jesuit prevails

Class 2A, district 5

One top Tiger goes down, another takes his place

LUTZ — Jesuit's Jordan Schilit has spent much of his prep career in the shadows of teammate Connor Revord. But on Thursday, Schilit took center stage. When Revord succumbed to a minor stomach ailment in the final mile of the 2A-5 meet at Lake Park, Schilit stepped up and recorded the third-fastest time of his career to take the title and lead his team to a resounding win. "It feels great," Schilit said. "I ran pretty well."

Schilit, who finished in 16 minutes, eight seconds, was one of five Tigers in the top eight. Jesuit's 23 points was well ahead of Robinson (78) and Frostproof (84). After Schilit, Jesuit's best finishes were by Logan Trimble (third, 16:51) and Blake Lopez (fifth, 17:05).

In the girls competition, Academy of the Holy Names was nearly as dominant. The Jaguars (53) easily beat Clearwater Central Catholic (89) and Tampa Catholic (95). AHN had three top-10 finishes and seven of the top 19, led by Selena Castillo's (21:05) sixth-place showing.

"I don't think it was our best effort, but it was good overall," Castillo said.

Tampa Catholic's Meghan Sullivan (20:21), who took third, had Hillsborough County's best finish. Tampa Catholic's Jaqueline Fricia (20:55) was fifth and Robinson's Lexie Goldberger (21:29) eighth.

Revord led the race before taking ill (he still finished 50th), but Schilit, who was trailing by only about five to 10 seconds, seized on the opportunity. Minutes after taking the lead, he crossed the finish 23 seconds before Sebring's Conner Bauer.

"If it wasn't me, I'm glad it was him," Revord said. "He works harder than anyone I know."

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …
