Track: AFA boys roll at Shorecrest Invitational

ST. PETERSBURG — Admiral Farragut's boys track squad picked up right where it left off last season, dominating the boys field with 168 points in the Shorecrest Invitational Friday evening.

"The kids were pretty jazzed up to be running on one of the best tracks around at Shorecrest," Farragut coach Phil Barnhill said.

"This was a good result for us at an early meet and were still missing several boys due to basketball right now. So were not at full strength yet, but the invitational gave us a chance to show what we could do early on. I think we competed and the girls did pretty good as well."

The Blue Jackets had several wins among the 17 events, including Michael Pitts (129 feet, 4 inches) in the discus throw, Jake Pappas (18.65 seconds) in the 110-meter hurdles and Gem Runyan (6-2) in the pole vault.

Other notable winners included St. Petersburg Catholic's Ryan Green (11.44) in the 100 and Indian Rocks Christian's Tyler Wood (41-3) in the shot put.

On the girls side, the team standings were much tighter, with Indian Rocks Christian edging Berkeley Prep 111-75 in the standings.

For the Golden Eagles, junior Tori Trador (4 feet, 10 inches) took the high jump and sisters Jennifer and Rachel Kistemaker (8-6) finished second and third in the pole vault, respectively.

Admiral Farragut's Destini Oglesby capped a solid day by taking the discus throw (118-10) and the shot put (35-41/2) The Blue Jackets finished eighth with 42 points.
