This is an article from the Nov. 19, 2012 issue

GAINESVILLE, GA. > SWIMMING

Paul, a junior at North Hall High, set two state records at the Pilot Aquatic Invitational at the University of Tennessee. He won the 50-yard freestyle in 20.23 seconds to break Georgia's USA Swimming marks for 15- to 16-year-olds and 17- to 18-year-olds. He also set a state record with a 43.99 in the 100 free, the third best all time by an American 16-year-old. Paul swam the 50 free at the 2012 Olympic trials.

MORGAN ANDREWS

MILFORD, N.H. > SOCCER

Morgan, a senior midfielder at Milford High and captain of the U.S. U-17 World Cup team, scored both goals in a 2--1 win over Souhegan High to lead the Spartans to the Division 2 state title. She led the squad with 31 goals and 18 assists this season, while also kicking for the football team. Morgan, the 2011 national Gatorade girls' soccer player of the year, holds the school career-scoring record.

Heinsohn, a senior running back at Washington and Lee, had 192 yards and four touchdowns on 35 carries and kicked a game-winning 37-yard field goal in a 45--42 quadruple-overtime win over Hampden-Sydney. The victory clinched the Old Dominion Athletic Conference regular-season title for the Generals. Heinsohn leads all NCAA divisions in scoring with 19.56 points per game.

KNOXVILLE, TENN. > CROSS-COUNTRY

Peighton, a sophomore at The Webb School of Knoxville, won the Tennessee 2A state meet in 19:30.59 to lead the Spartans to a 1--2 sweep and the team title.
