A cross country standout at Sebring is certainly something to be proud of, but doesn't guarantee success at the next level - especially when that next level is as an NCAA runner for the University of Florida. (via www.newssun.com)

Freshman and sophomore year Brian Dixon's friends asked him to come out for track and field. "Give it a try. See if you like it!" It was the same every year and the same response from Dixon: "It's just not for me." After playing soccer for Sebring High School and recognizing he was faster than a lot of others on the field, he decided to test out track.
It was a great 2012-2013 in both cross country and track across the Sunshine state. Many of our seniors will soon be on their way to start their college careers both athletically and academically so we wanted to salute them one more time in this special feature.

Over the past four years there has been one constant in the world of girls high school sports. If the Sebring Blue Streaks were competing in cross country or in a track and field meet, you knew Taylor Tubbs was going to be near the front in any event she was entered in.

On Tuesday night at a home meet at Fireman's Field in Sebring, a low entry count in the girls 1600 prompted the meet management staff to decide to run both genders together. As a result, Tubbs for once had someone to race against (which has only happened once before this season at the Steinbrenner Invitational)... at least for a little bit, that is before she left the boys in her dust!
Sebring senior Taylor Tubbs has made a huge impact on the Blue Streak program the four years she has been a member. She has served as cross country and track captains and holds school records in the 800, 1600, 3200, and 5k. Recently, Tubbs commited to the University of Florida. She tells flrunners what went into the decision, what she is looking forward to, and much more!
