Jesuit High School track & field earned its sixth District title in six seasons under coach Andy Wood '92 and its 15th in the past 16 years with a powerhouse performance Tuesday (April 14) at Berkeley Prep.
The Tigers won a whopping nine individual events (out of 14), all three relays, and tallied 287 points – the most in Wood’s tenure – to outdistance the second-place school by 128 points.
Travell Harris ’17 and Jason Caldwell ’15 led the way, each winning two events with Harris adding a relay victory. Harris won the 100 (11.04) and 200 (22.74) in addition to running a leg of the 4x100, while Caldwell won the 1,600 (4:42) and 3,200 (10:24).
Jesuit’s other five individual winners were Guy Revelle '15 (shot put), Rey Riveros '16 (triple jump), Jack Hughes '15 (pole vault), Dante Newberg '15 (110 hurdles), and Jacob Newton '16 (400).
The winning relay teams were led by the trio of Griffin Rain ’16, Myles Hahn ’16, and Rhett Broz ’17, who all ran both the 4x400 and 4x800. On the 4x400 they were joined by Newton, and the 4x800 was completed by Dominic Santos ’16. Harris was joined on the 4x100 by Michael Mathews ’15, Matthew Groteke ’18, and Alec Firrincieli ’18.
The Tigers qualified 23 athletes for the Region Meet on April 23 at The First Academy in Orlando. The Class 2A State Meet is May 1 at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville.
