Thanks in part of the work of state track champ Kristin Zarrella, Lakewood Ranch's girls won the FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup in Class 6A.
The Mustangs totaled 430 points to breeze by second-place Naples Barron Collier (330).
Points are awarded to each school for where it finishes in all of the FHSAA's sanctioned sports, with 100 points going to state champions, 90 for runner-up, 83 for the state semifinalists, 60 for places five through eight,and 25 for places nine through 16.
Schools are also awarded five-point bonuses for winning district and regional titles.
Zarrella, a senior, took first in the 800-meter run during the Class 3A state track and field championships in Jacksonville.
(Class 3A is the second-largest classification in track).
Lakewood Ranch's softball and volleyball teams made the state final four, while the girls basketball team won the program's first district title during the winter.
The girls cross country took fifth in the Class 3A state meet over the fall.
Powered by the girls' successful season, the Mustangs finished third overall in the Class 6A Sunshine Cup standings with 613 points.
