May 7, 2021
Three members of the 2021 OCP Track team competed in the FHSAA 1A State Championships at University of North Florida's Hodges Stadium in four events Friday morning - junior Jasmyne Wright (Girls Long Jump and Girls Triple Jump), sophomore Siarah Brown (Girls 400m Dash) and freshman Alexis Garcia (Boys 400m Dash), and all finished in the Top 8 earning medals, with Wright finishing 3rd in the Triple Jump.
Entering the triple jump state finals with the 4th best qualifying time, Wright jumped a personal and season-best 10.90m (35' 9.25") in her third attempt of four to finish 3rd in the state. In the long jump, her first attempt of 4.63m (15' 2.25") was the best attempt of the day, earning 10th overall among 16 competitors.
In the girls 400m Dash, Brown raced in the 2nd of two heats with the Top 8 qualifying runners from Regionals to a new personal and season-best time of 58.69 seconds. She earned 7th place and a spot on the medal stand. This was the second consecutive race Siarah had set a personal and season-best record. The first-place winning time was 56.62 seconds.
In the boys 400m Dash, Garcia ran 51.55 seconds to earn 8th place and a spot on the medal stand. The first-place time was 49.41. Alexis also raced in the 2nd of two heats with the Top 8 qualifying runners from Regionals.
Congratulations to Jasmyne, Siarah and Alexis on their outstanding finish to the track season, and all the Warriors that competed hard during the track season giving their best efforts in every meet and event.
Thanks to Coach Rhymer, Coach Goldson and Coach Demosthenes for their time, energy, and efforts to bring out the best in every middle and high school student that made the commitment to track and field this season.
We look forward to the 2022 track season!
It might have been the moment. It might have been the opponent. Regardless of the why, the disappointment of a season-ending 9-4 loss to Mount Dora Christian Academy (MDCA) for the Lady Warriors softball team was clear on the face of every young lady that took a knee and settled into a circle around their coaches after the final out.
As they listened to the words of encouragement and praise for their historic accomplishments, their faces shown more disappointment for not have a few more innings to complete a comeback than frustration for the way the game started.
During a season that saw the team capture the program's first district championship, host and win their first FHSAA regional playoff game, OCP, fought like champions after surrendering seven unanswered runs in the first four top-half innings to the 4th ranked team in class 2A, according to MaxPreps.
OCP, ranked #10 in 2A by MaxPrep heading into the contest, gave up two runs in each of the first three innings, including a mammoth 2-run home run in the 2nd inning that resulted in a pitching change. MDCA managed to get just five total hits in the contest thanks to some solid relief pitching by freshman Mia Rosario and sophomore Grace Thomas.
The Warriors powerful batting lineup didn't get into their second at-bats until the bottom of the 4th inning where they finally managed to break-up MDCA's shutout with two runs to cut the deficit to five runs.
In the bottom of the 5th, OCP forced MDCA into making a pitching change from their senior starter who had struck out five and was dominant early. Unfortunately, the Warriors weren't able to capitalize with runners on the bases.
After surrendering another 2-run homer in the top of the 6th inning, OCP cut the deficit back to five runs in the bottom half of the inning on freshman Lexi Perez's 2-run home run.
Despite outscoring MDCA 4-2 in the last half of the game, OCP wasn't able to overcome their earlier mistakes as Mt. Dora Christian would advance to the regional championship game.
As family, friends, classmates, teachers and administrators waited to congratulate the Lady Warriors on their "no quit", "never give up" attitude, the highlight moments of this season will not be lost on their youth.
The starting nine on the field for the first pitch of this regional semifinal game consisted of just two upperclassmen, senior LF Christina Torres and junior 1B Dayanara Perez. Torres is the only graduating player on the roster. A solid core of freshman and sophomores, led by the Rosario twins, Thomas and (Lexi) Perez, will return from a 16-8 team that closed the season ranked 11th in 2A by MaxPreps.
Congratulations to Coach Dustin Schneider, his coaching staff, the players and their families on a great season... a historic season that opens the door for greater accomplishments ahead.
