Class 2A state track

When: Saturday

Where: Hodges Stadium, University of North Florida, Jacksonville

Admission: $9

Schedule: 4x800 relay, start of field events at 1 p.m.; running event preliminaries at 4; running finals at 6:30

Outlook: Lakewood's Shaquem Griffin is in position to win his first state title in the triple jump. The junior has the top-seed mark after leaping 48 feet, 1 inch at last week's region meet. His twin brother, Shaquill, also could finish in the top three in the event. Both make up half of the Spartans' 4x100 and 4x400 relays, which could medal.

Lakewood's girls also have strong 4x100 and 4x400 teams. Ashlee Funderburk has a chance for a top-three finish in the 300 hurdles. 04/26/12 [Last modified: Thursday, April 26, 2012 10:50pm]
