Track and field regional: Boca Ciega's LeShore earns pair of wins

PUNTA GORDA — Pinellas County boys and girls numbers were whittled down at Wednesday's Class 3A, Region 3 meet, so much that they had to forgo team titles and focus on individual ones.

Boca Ciega's Michael LeShore had the best results.

LeShore, a junior, won the 800 meters in 1 minute, 57.85 seconds. He then teamed with Daniel Ryczek Ted Cooper and Bryan LeShore to take first in the 4x800 relay in 8:27 and finished his night running with Andrew Nicholas, Cortez Dimodica and Cooper and the third-place 4x400 relay.

LeShore helped the Pirates place eighth overall.

Gibbs took sixth, the highest finish among county boys teams. The Gladiators were paced by Austin Rembert, who was third in the high jump and second in the 110 hurdles. Sage Raphael was third in the 400 and Russell Allen was second in the 300 hurdles to round out Gibbs' top three finishers.

Lakewood's Frank Minton was second in the 200.and Seminole's Christian Homme was third in the 3,200.

In the girls field, Osceola's Brittany Wagoner won the pole vault and Dunedin's Tyesha Thomas was second in the triple jump.

Lakewood's Kala Funderburk was second in the 200 and 400. She also was on the third-place 4x400 relay, along with Brianna Forde, Gincy Marcelin and Kiona Anderson.

That helped the Spartans finish third overall, the highest finish among county teams.
