Senior Spotlight – Anna Gapinski

Anna Gapinski is a Senior on Creekside’s Swim and Dive team.  She has been swimming competitively for the past 12 years and has been on the Swim and Dive Team at Creekside since she was a freshman. Over the last 3 years, Anna has contributed significantly to Creekside’s success in the pool.  She is a 4 time individual state qualifier, in the 50, 100, 200 freestyle & 100 backstroke.  As a Junior in 2017-2018, Anna was on the state championship winning 200 medley relay team which catapulted the Creekside Knights to win the overall FHSAA Team State Championship.  That 200 medley relay team currently holds the school record in that particular event. 

Winning the 200 medley relay at states last year is a special memory for Anna because that was something her team was working towards throughout the entire season. “It was just an awesome feeling being the final leg of the relay and outtouching Gainesville by 2 tenths. This upcoming season we hope to defend our state title and win overall for the second year in a row. We have a really strong group of girls and I am confident that Coach Tracy will lead us to another title,”  says Anna.

When she’s not in the pool, Anna is involved in the National Social Studies Honor Society, International Thespian Society, National English Honors Society, Psychology Club, Junior Ladies (Senior Women this year), and Best Buddies. Anna does not plan to swim in college so she hopes this season will be her most memorable and go out with a bang!  Upon graduation from Creekside, she hopes to attend a high achieving, four year university and study psychology or social work. 

 

“It was just an awesome feeling being the final leg of the relay and outtouching Gainesville by 2 tenths.”

Prep Baseball: St. Augustine, Creekside, Ponte Vedra begin playoff journey

Creekside (19-7) at Lake City Columbia (16-12)

When: 7 p.m.

Potential Starters: Creekside — senior Hunter Bratek or junior Connor Hults will get the baseball. Columbia — Davion Love (5-4, 2.03) is a senior southpaw who has been the Tigers ace all season.

Analysis: Creekside hits the road after being stunned by St. Augustine in the District 4-7A final. The Knights rode their offense all season and will look to do so against the Tigers.

Daniel Cantu, Nick Tripp and Hunter Bratek have led the way offensively. Josh Emerson, who had a strong April before sustaining an injury, should be back in the lineup. Sophomore Jacob Topping has provided a spark at the bottom of the lineup, with 3 RBIs and two runs scored in the district tournament.

Cantu and Bratek are among the left-handed bats in the Creekside lineup. Columbia baseball coach Brian Thomas believes the left-on-left matchup may go a long way toward deciding who moves on to the Region 1-7A semifinals next Tuesday.

“They have kids who can swing it,” Thomas said. “Lefty on lefty is big. When you can throw with movement a lefty has a tendency to not dig in a lot. Davion, that’s his (modus operandi) He gets in on your hands as a righty and in on your hands as a lefty. If he can frustrate hitters, it’s going to be a good day for him.”

Up Next: The winner will face the winner of St. Augustine and Gainesville on May 15. Creekside would travel to St. Augustine and host Gainesville.
