Keep an eye out – Don’t forget about last year’s 1A state cross country champion, Gabriel Curtis of Mount Dora Christian Academy. Curtis has been quiet all season, which is typical of how he has been throughout his career. In past seasons he has been a non-factor through the regular season, but then would turn things up during the postseason.
