Sophomore Nicole Matysik earned National ranking, and both Key West HS and Marathon HS earned District Championship titles last week, the Conch boys locking up the fourth 2A-16 crown in school history, and the Dolphin boys claiming the 1A-16 honor in their first season of T&F competition.

The Key West girls team matched their best-ever finish by placing second, a position only reached once before, back in 2004.

For the boys, especially, it was show of distance domination.  They won the 4x800 relay, took 1-2 in the 3200, 1-2 in the 1600, and 2-3 in the 800, accounting for 60 of the team’s 118 points.

For the girls, Nicole was a show unto herself, winning the 3200 and 1600, placing third in the 800, and running the fastest leg on the third-place 4x800 relay.  The biggest splash was in the 1600, where she crushed her School Record, her prime rival, AND the five-minute barrier (4:55.93) in four strong, controlled laps.  Her time ranks her at number 24 on this year’s USA list.  [Full 2A-16 results]

The Dolphins burst onto the 1A T&F scene like a tsunami, totally overwhelming their opponents.  They scored well in almost every event, and beat the runner-up team by 98 points.  They, too, blitzed the field in the distance races, going 1-2-3 in both the 3200 & 1600, 1-2 in the 800, along with a win in the 4x8.  

[Full 1A-16 results]

Both school face much sterner tests this week in their respective Region 4 Championships.
