Outlook: There aren’t any guarantees in track and field, but Oakleaf’s Melvin Briley comes close: He’s won every triple jump he’s entered in Florida high school competition for the past two years. He’s a contender in the long jump as well. Look for Sandalwood’s hurdlers, led by two-sport star Edwin Carter, and the Fleming Island distance contingent to challenge also.
