- November 11 is Hannah Burns of the Columbia (Lake City) girls’ swim team. Burns won her third state title in three years with an automatic All-American time of 2:00.95 in the 200-yard individual medley at the FHSAA Swimming & Diving Finals. The junior also placed second in the 500 freestyle with a career-best and automatic All-American time of 4:48.99. She helped lead Columbia to a ninth-place mark at state, which was its best finish in more than 10 years.
- Friday, November 15, was Tony James of the Gainesville football team. The Oregon commit rushed for 135 yards on 19 carries to help lead the Hurricanes to a 17-14 win over Sunlake (Land O’ Lakes) in the Class 6A-Region 2 Quarterfinals. But it was his 65-yard game-tying kickoff return for a touchdown late in the game that helped give the ‘Canes (9-2) the momentum they would need to rally for the game’s final 10 points with less than two minutes to play.
