Cross country: Newsome boys, girls advance to region meet

Newsome's boys and girls cross country teams earned region berths with top-eight finishes at Saturday's Class 4A, District 3 meet at Clermont.

Bloomingdale and Brandon also competed in this 18-team district, consisting primarily of Orlando-area schools, but neither qualified a team or individual for Friday morning's Region 2 meet at Lutz's Lake Park.

The top eight squads and top 15 individual runners advanced.

The girls race winner was Shelby Hayes of Winter Park in 18 minutes, 14 seconds. The boys race winner was Colonial's Steven Fernandez in 15:58.25.

The Wolves girls placed fifth (137 points) Saturday. Newsome freshman Brianna Jackson, winner of the recent Hillsborough County Championships, was the county's top finisher, placing 10th (19:45.88). Senior teammate Sydney Coates was 14th (20:12.49).

The sixth-place Wolves boys (157) were led by senior Michael Zwijacz, who placed 17th in a season-best 16:54.60. Newsome's four other top runners finished in the top 50.

  1. Rays say they don't want to be satisfied with hovering around .500

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to briefly get back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Corey Dickerson gets a high-five from third-base coach Charlie Montoyo after tying the score at 1 with a leadoff home run to the opposite field in the first inning of Monday’s late Rays-Angels game, his 12th homer this season.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
