MURRAY TO HAVE SURGERY FRIDAY

Record-setting Plant quarterback Aaron Murray said Monday he will have surgery Friday to repair a broken left fibula. Murray, who has 28 touchdown passes this season (in six games) and 79 in his career, added that his season is over.

Murray, a Georgia commit, said under the best-case scenario, he would miss at least two months if the fibula is his only injury. Doctors won't know if there is further ligament damage until they operate.

Murray showed up at Plant's Monday practice on crutches. His left leg is in a cast.

Murray sustained the injury late in the second quarter of Thursday night's 44-28 win over Hillsborough. As a junior, he passed for a state-record 51 touchdowns.

AHN's Davis commits to Penn

Academy of the Holy Names senior guard Katie Davis has committed to Penn, Jaguars athletic director Pete Young announced Monday. Davis averaged 21.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 4.2 steals last season.

She chose the Quakers over Cornell, Emory, Harvard, MIT, Washington University and West Point.

Davis was a Times honorable mention All-Suncoast pick and first-team all-county selection as a junior.

West headed to Seminole CC

Durant golfer Amy West, one of the region's top performers, said she will play for Seminole Community College. The Times' all-county choice in 2007 also considered Stetson. West's 2-over 74 on Monday at Heritage Isles helped the Cougars claim the Class 2A, Region 4 title. That sends West, a senior, to state for the fourth time. At last year's 2A state tournament, she posted rounds of 77-78 and tied for 16th.

"It's the best fit for me," West said of Seminole CC. "I feel like it's a stepping stone."
