Hillsborough: Newsome and Bloomingdale cross country squads advance to region meet

The Newsome and Bloomingdale boys and girls teams all clinched region berths with top-eight showings at Saturday morning's Class 4A, District 3 meet at Winter Garden.

The Wolves girls, behind sophomore Brianna Jackson, led the bay area contingent with a fifth-place team finish (126 points, behind winner Orlando Dr. Phillips).

Jackson, the 2009 Hillsborough County champion, ran a personal-best time (19 minutes, 31.98 seconds) over the 3.1 miles to place sixth individually. Classmate Stephanie Cajas, and Wolves seniors Sarah Richardson and Caroline Berg placed 23rd, 24th and 26th, respectively.

The Newsome boys placed sixth (128, behind winner Orlando Colonial). Wolves sophomore Lars Benner finished a Hillsborough County-best 18th (16:29.59) only nine days after collapsing near the finish of the county meet and being hospitalized briefly.

Tyler Moriarty, Joey Perfetto and Isaac Baker placed 22nd, 26th and 27th, respectively, for Newsome. Bloomingdale's boys and girls both finished eighth to sneak into Friday's Region 2 meet at Lutz's Lake Park. The top eight squads earned region berths.
