Columbus boys, Southridge girls win at Youth Fair track meet

American’s Tyrese Cooper and Southridge’s Symone Mason each won a pair of individual sprint events at the Youth Fair track and field championships Saturday despite inclement weather conditions at Tropical Park.

Cooper swept the 100 meters (10.60 seconds) and 200 meters (20.95).

Mason did the same on the girls’ side, winning the 100 in 11.83 seconds and the 200 in 23.86 seconds.

Columbus took home the boys’ title led by Humberto Friere, who won the 1,600 meters and Andres Francisco’s win in the pole vault.

Mason’s efforts spearheaded a team championship by Southridge, which edged Northwestern. The Bulls had several of their top athletes competing at the Florida Relays in Gainesville.

Nevertheless Southridge won three more individual events and won the 400-meter and 1,600-meter relays.
