3A Buzz: Kissimmee Liberty, led by senior Marion "Markel'' Brown and junior Devarius Turner, hopes to challenge favored Miami Northwestern and Tallahassee Chiles for the boys team title.

4A Buzz: Area athletes will form a parade to the medals stand. Favorites include two-time reigning girls pole-vault champ Erica Sergeant of Lake Mary and Clermont East Ridge sprinter Kaylin Whitney, who ranks second nationally in the girls 100-meter dash. Undefeated Dr. Phillips will challenge for the boys team title, but the Panthers rank well behind Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas and Hialeah American based on region results.
