A total of 265 riders from all over the state participated in the event, which was sponsored by the National Pedal Sports Association. It's the second largest number of riders who have participated in a supercross this year. The top team was Carl's Well Service of West Palm Beach with 128 points, while J&R Bike Shop of St. Petersburg was second with 127. Among the top local finishers was Deanna Merrill of Umatilla, who was third in the girls 11-12-year-old division. Jeff Campbell, 7, of Altoona, won in the beginners class, and Phillip Johnson of Umatilla was third. Carl Vossberg of Umatilla was third in the boys 7-year junior class; Jake Buchanan was third in the 7-year expert class; Jeff Lawson of Umatilla was third in the 9-year beginners; Rocky Baron of Umatilla won the 10-novice class; Robbie Burchett of Umatilla won the 12-year beginners, and Todd Foster, also of Umatilla, was third in the class. The program wasn't without incidents. Several riders were injured during the event and were treated at Waterman Medical Center in Eustis. None were hospitalized. Many of the injuries occurred during accidents on the Alligator Alley portion of the course a double jump on the back stretch. The only reason for the accidents is the kids haven't practiced it enough," saidAl Merrill, the track's designer. "You have some kids who feel they can clear it both bumps but can't. It's just a judgment thing." Bin Little League action Saturday, the Eustis Phillies were eliminated from the District 14 Senior League Top Team tournament with a 2-1 loss to Oviedo. Jamie Carter suffered the loss for Eustis and allowed six hits while Alan Greene limited Eustis to only two hits.

Boogie Ellis was the winning pitcher in the first game, while Jack Tomson took the loss in the second contest.
