A-3 swimming: Jesuit boys must settle for second

FORT MYERS — As the results of the Region A-3 swim meet were announced over the loudspeaker at the Florida Gulf Coast University aquatics center in San Carlos Park, Northside Christian coach Kay Caldwell thought she'd missed something.

The fourth-place and third-place teams girls were called and Caldwell still hadn't heard where her Mustangs had finished. Then it was announced, Northside took the runnerup spot. No one on the pool deck was more surprised than Caldwell.

"This is the best finish ever for our girls," the seventh-year Mustangs coach said. "It's all about teamwork."

The Jesuit boys were barely outpaced 239 to 236 by Fort Myers Bishop Verot. It was the first time since the inception of the regional meet four years ago that Jesuit didn't win the championship.

Vinny Donnelly led Jesuit with second-place finishes in the 200 and 500 freestyle. He also anchored the second-place 200 free relay.

The winner of each event is guaranteed a trip to the Class 2A state meet in Orlando next Friday. The other seven times will be pooled with the other three regions and the top 20 times overall will qualify for state.

Other individual champions included Tampa Prep's Grace Fredlake (200 IM) and St. Petersburg Catholic's Kelsey Krauss (100 butterfly). Cameron Martin of Clearwater Central Catholic took titles in two events, the 100 fly and 100 back.

"I'm definitely looking to win my two events at states," said Martin, a senior. "The competition is a little less this year than last, and I've been working really hard so I'm confident."

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead

    College

    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    South Florida Bulls safety Devin Abraham (20) sacks Temple Owls quarterback Logan Marchi (12) during the first half at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, September 21, 2017.
  2. No. 21 USF Bulls roll over Temple to stay undefeated

    College

    TAMPA — They emerged from Raymond James Stadium's southwest tunnel on the 11-month anniversary of their public humilation at Temple.

    Bulls tailback Darius Tice, who rushes for 117 yards, is elated by his 47-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead.
  3. Fennelly: USF thrashes Temple to stay unbeaten; too bad not many saw it in person

    College

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry announced crowd of 24,325 at Raymond James Stadium.

    Where was everybody?

    Bulls cornerback Deatrick Nichols (3) celebrates with teammates after making a defensive play during the first half.
  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
