Senior Josh Matzner followed up his District Championship performance of a week ago with another brilliant race at the Regional Championship in Gainesville Friday morning. Matzner crossed the finish in 16:39, placing him 13th in the field of 124 and by finishing among the top 15 runners, qualified for next week's State Championship in Tallahassee. As a team, DP placed ninth among 17 teams. Sophomore Adam Berriz has proven he'll be among the area's best next year, finishing 56th in 17:46. Two seconds later, senior Anthony Venturini was next through for the Panthers in 17:48 with sophomore Jose Nazario coming home in a personal record 18:02. Junior Kervenster Azor closed out the scoring five with   a time of 18:08 and completing the team for the Panthers were sophomore Ilyas Semlali (18:27) and junior Damon Perez (18:57). While Josh Matzner has one more meet remaining in his stellar career, a great season that included the first District team title in nine years comes to close. Congratulations to coach Laura Kirkikis and the entire team and we look forward to an even better season next fall.
