Weather has caused trouble for two different High School sporting events around Brevard County.
The Class 3A district tennis scheduled to be held at Fee Avenue courts was postponed until Friday.
Aslo postponed was today’s Cape Coast Conference track and field championships.
The event, which will be held at Astronaut High, is now scheduled to take place on Friday.
And the host War Eagles have won the boys title nine years in a row, while Rockledge High has claimed the past two girls championships.
Several individuals return with chances to repeat the big days they had last season, including Cocoa High’s Jazzmine Folston. In 2012, she won the long jump, 100 meters and 200.
She is again one of the county leaders in those events, particularly the long jump, where her season best is 19 feet, 8 inches.
Rockledge’s Danielle Phillips won both the triple jump and the 100-meter hurdles last year, while also running on the winning 4×400 relay squad. She also returns.
Host Astronaut will have one of the top returning boys at the meet. Steven Williams won the 100 and 400 a year ago.
This year, he has Brevard’s top 400 time at 48.3 seconds, and he also is competing in the 100 hurdles.
The fourth annual Cocoa High School Football Golf Tournament is April 13 at Turtle Creek. The fee is $60 per golfer and includes range balls, golf cart, green fee, goody bag and dinner at Jimmie’s. Hole sponsorships also are available. Those interested should contact John Wilkinson at 321-632-5300, ext. 22045.
Yessenia Moreno signed a full scholarship on Wednesday to play softball for BCC. She is the first such female athlete for the Panthers.
The Hawks baseball team had a big spring break and is building momentum as the postseason approaches. Viera won the blue bracket of the Sarasota Classic, and pitcher David McKay was named the MVP. Connor Hermida made the all-tournament team.
