Fort Myers HS — Region 3 Champions, lead by Junior standout Gear, has had some challenges in the form of injuries over the course of the season but fortunately noobs stepped up to get them back into contention. Their 2, Sophomore Abby Fisher, had a stress fracture a week before the season opener, leaving Coach Strong looking for answers.
If they can improve on big race toughness and get that Region 3 2: Creekside HS — 4th place team at Region 1 are coming together at the right time of the season. They have had a good 1 — 2 but the back end has not been consistent.
Now it seems they have found a way to stay together and move up as a pack. HS — Grabbed the final team qualifying spot in Region 1, but it was scary.

Columbia HS — 5th at the Region 1 meet lead by Morse. They will have to find a way to stay packed up if they want to finish in the top ten.

Krissy Gear, Junior, Fort Myers HS — This is tricky because the 2nd through 6th places will be decided by mere seconds, maybe less, but Gear gets the nod based on her progression, success on tough courses and her incredible closing speed. To say she likes the ARP course is an understatement. Kara Funke, Junior, Leesburg HS — 4th at the State meet as a Sophomore, Kara has not shown the same high consistency that she had last year, but if her Region 2 win is any indication she may be back in the groove.
Nothing like consistency from a coaching standpoint, am I right?
