The Hernando Heat Under-18 boys' soccer team completed its regular season by finishing in second place in its division.
The Heat play in Division 1 in Florida's Region C, which includes teams from as far north as Citrus County and as far south as Fort Myers. Last season, the Heat won the Region C Cup Championship.
The club is now on hiatus for the high school soccer season, but will begin its season again in the spring in hopes of defending its finish from last year.
The team was inspired by the memory of former defender Jesse Bors. Players on the team wore No. 22 embroidered on the front of their jerseys in honor of Bors, who passed away Oct. 30 due to complications from a brain tumor and was an integral part of last year's championship team.
WRESTLING: Spring Hill Wrestling Club member Josh Herrera was part of Team Florida on Nov. 22 at the National Elementary and Middle School Folkstyle Duals in Fayetteville, N.C.
Herrera brought back the bronze medal for his individual performance in the 91-pound weight class helping Team Florida place second overall in the Middle School Division.
