High School Sports News: Alachua Santa Fe boys win Florida’s District 5-2A track and field titles.

Santa Fe coach Tommie Turner was a bit in disbelief after his team claimed its first boys’ district team title since 2003.

“Coming in, I thought it would be between Palatka and Eastside because the numbers they had in the sprints and hurdles outnumbered our one hurdler,” said Tuner, who has coached for 30 years at Santa Fe and 42 years overall.

After scoring 81 points in the field and jumping events, Turner thought his team had a chance. “We never thought we could score that many. That never happens.”

The Raiders’ Theriyus Banks was the catalyst by scoring 26 points in winning the high jump and triple jump and taking third in the long jump. Like Williams, Banks did not compete last year and with some encouragement from Turner, came out to compete for his senior year.

“Coach told me to come out here and be myself and do great,” said Banks after winning his first district titles. “That’s exactly what I did.”

“I’m surprised,” Turner said of his team’s 163-146 win over the highly favored Palatka. “I’m excited for the kids, but I’m really surprised.”
