Today, on the friendly confines of Lake Virginia, four Florida schools put ten Rollins FJs through their paces for three hours of one-division competition in a SAISA "friendly."
Conditions were tactical, as light, but surprisingly steady breezes from the west kept the competitors guessing.
Rollins and Florida Gulf Coast traded places atop the leader board for most of the day, with Florida Gulf Coast pulling ahead for good just before the wind died down.
The team had traveled since well before sunrise from south Florida to compete in the Lake Virginia Fall Invitational, and made it count with bullets in two of the four races.
U of F and Rollins claimed the other two first place finishes. Palm Beach Atlantic and Embry Riddle were in the mix as well, with both claiming a second place finish.
