Five individuals and one relay team from the Lemon Bay track and field teams are headed to next week’s Class 2A state meet in Bradenton thanks to their performances at Thursday’s Region 2A-3 meet in Tampa.
Kelsi Ogilvie was at it again, winning a regional title in the 3200-meter race while also taking home first place on Lemon Bay’s girls 4×800 relay team with Chloe Mitchell, Kristen Robinson and Maddison Welch. That quartet scorched the field by nearly seven seconds.
Ogilvie also finished second in 1600 meters to qualify for states in three events. Individually, Robinson qualified for state in the 3200 meters with a third-place finish while Welch will compete in the 800 meters after finishing third at regionals.
Two Manta Rays from the boys team also qualified for the state meet. Dylan Brady won a regional championship in the high jump while Brayden Curry took home a regional crown in the shot put.
