Dr. Krop’s boys edged American by 1.5 points to secure the team championship of the District 13-4A track and field meet Thursday at Traz Powell Stadium. Victor Montreuil (800 meters), Spencer Tate (3,200), Ryan Jackson (110 hurdles), Francisco Trujillo (300 hurdles), Amani Walker (shot put) each won their events to key the win.
American’s boys, however, picked up several individual titles.
Christian Williams won the high jump and long jump and Jawill Davis swept the 100 and 200 meters.
American’s girls cruised to the team victory led by sprinter Lenysse Dyer’s wins in the 100 and 200. Miami Beach’s Kassandra Blandon won the 1600 and 3200. For Krop, which finished second as a team, N’Kiru Anyagaligbo won the high jump and long jump and Darlene Desmangles won the 100 hurdles and triple jump.
• District 16-4A — Killian’s girls edged South Dade by two points for the team title at Southridge Stadium. Southridge secured the team title on the boys’ side.
Killian swept the hurdles in the girls as Ebony Morrison won the 100 meters and Brianna Payne took home the 300 meters. South Dade won the 1,600 and 3,200 relays and Barbra Vilson won the high jump and 400 meters. Dominique Bullock helped Killian get the slight edge in points by winning the long jump. Varela’s Lea Tardanico swept the 1,600 and 3,200 meters. Southridge’s Epiphany Thompson won the shot put and discus.
On the boys’ side, Chris Prophet continued to dominate the hurdles events winning both to lead the Spartans. South Dade’s Ronald Beasley won the 100 and 200 meters.
• Boys’ District 16 final — Gulliver 23, TERRA 2: The Gulliver boys’ water polo team has been on quite a roller coaster ride since winning its state championship a year ago. Gulliver (19-7) routed TERRA and advanced to face Mourning in the state play-in round.
Senior Hunter Pelletier, who is finally getting his moment in the spotlight with all the roster turnaround, led the Raiders with eight goals.
“He’s always been a good player. He’s always been a facilitator. We’ve always had talent here, so he’s always kind of been in the background,” Vaughn said. “Now he’s my captain, he’s my senior, so I’m glad that everyone’s recognizing that he’s great. He’s my MVP.”
• Girls’ District 16 final — Gulliver 23, TERRA 1: It wasn’t much easier for TERRA against the Gulliver girls, but it also could’ve been worse had the Raider middle-school backups not played so many minutes.
The Raiders (26-1) came out of the gate firing, scoring on seven of their first eight possessions and led 10-0 at the end of the first quarter.
Camila Schafer and Ale Guerra scored five goals apiece to pace the Gulliver scoring. The Gulliver girls, like they boys, will also face Mourning in the state play-in round.
The way the FHSAA brackets are set up, Gulliver could potentially face four-time defending state champion Ransom Everglades in the state final.
• District 30 final — Coral Shores 8, Palmetto 7: In a rematch of last year’s district final, Coral Shores boys’ lacrosse redeemed themselves in a thrilling victory over the Palmetto Panthers to win the District 30 championship, the first in school history.
“It was nerve-wracking,” said Coral Shores coach Mat Hall.
“We wanted to really put it to them after last year’s loss in the finals, and I’m really proud of the boys for hanging on at the end.”
Down by a goal heading into the final quarter of play and needing a big break, the Hurricanes got one, gaining a one-man advantage for three minutes to open the fourth quarter after an illegal-stick penalty was called against Palmetto. Coral Shores capitalized, scoring a pair of goals that gave the Hurricanes their first lead of the match and the momentum.
With just under five minutes to go, Palmetto attacker Dylan Silverman tied the score at 7-7, but Coral Shores midfielder Bryce Lankford answered with the game-winner, winding up from five yards out and firing a shot into the back of the net.
Coral Shores attacker Danny Whisted had a hand in most of the team’s offensive production, scoring a team-high four goals and tallying three assists.
• District 16-8A final — Coral Reef 9, Palmetto 4: Sophomore Christina Collie’s single in the fourth drove in two to finally get some current behind the host Barracudas, who took home the district championship over the Panthers.
Another rally in the fifth put five more unanswered runs on the board. Dayna Wilson, who pitched a complete game and struck out three, kept the Panthers shut out until the sixth and picked up her 16th win.
Coral Reef (23-2) is on a roll, having won the GMAC tournament last week. Their hopes to take the momentum all the way through states might not be so far-fetched.
“This year has been great, the girls have put in a lot of hard work, and it has paid off,” said coach Dario Rodriguez. “We set our standards high and we work hard for them.”
