  • Summer Parker, senior for Lakeland High School field hockey: She scored the 100th goal of her high school career in Wednesday’s road game against Oscar Smith High School and then added three more goals to help the Lady Cavaliers win 8-0 in the mercy rule-abbreviated contest.

He ended up with 17 carries for 136 yards.
  • Deshaun Wethington, sophomore for King’s Fork High School football: He got most of his work done early Friday night against Woodrow Wilson High School, scoring on the Bulldogs’ first play from scrimmage via a 36-yard run, and later in the first quarter from one yard out.
