District track and field glance

Class 2A, District 9

Host: Holy Names

When: noon Wednesday

Where: Berkeley Prep, Tampa

Teams: Berkeley Prep, Hernando, Holy Names, Jesuit, Nature Coast, Pasco, Robinson, Sunlake, Tampa Catholic, Wiregrass Ranch, Zephyrhills

North Suncoast notes: The Nature Coast boys and Wiregrass Ranch girls have the best chance to claim district titles for the North Suncoast. The Sharks have a solid group of sprinters, led by Britt Langley and Antwan Story. And there is Alex Mason in the 800 and Howard Williams in the triple jump. Wiregrass Ranch is led by freshman Ariel Grey in the distance events. She represents a group of promising freshmen who help strengthen the Bulls.

Hernando's boys are strong in the distance events, with Tyler Maier dominating in the 1,600 and 3,200. The Leopards boast solid 4x100 and 4x400 relays, and football star George Fribley is a solid sprinter. Zephyrhills always has solid sprinters, and that is true of the 4x100 relay, with Josh Perkins and Michael Avadikian. The Bulldog girls have standouts in Jamiesha Parker in the 200 and long jump and Kate Patton in the discus. Sunlake might be a first-year program, but Tyler Hisamoto has provided strength in the discus, finishing second at the Sunshine Athletic Conference meet.

Class A, District 9

When: 10 a.m. Wednesday

Where: Indian Rocks Christian

Teams: Bayshore Christian, Bishop McLaughlin, Calvary Christian, Cambridge, Indian Rocks Christian, Northside Christian, Seven Rivers Christian, Tampa Bay Christian, Tampa Prep

North Suncoast notes: The Hurricanes are the lone North Suncoast team. On the boys side, Ryan Beeble leads the way in the long jump, 200 and 400. Trae Williams and Greg Yap are strong in the discus, and Beau McDonald leads the way in the shot put. For the girls, Adrienne Braganza has the Hurricanes' top 100 time. Kelly Wahl is solid in the 800, and Alicia Suarez-Solar runs a solid 200.
