This week: Back on top. The Spartans squashed any doubts on Tuesday, when they traveled to Class 2A champion Bolles and came away with a 3-2 victory on goals from Hannah Lemieux, Kamryn Towers and senior striker Kamy Loustau. That’s extended the St. Johns unbeaten streak against local opposition to unheard-of levels: They haven’t lost to a Jacksonville-area team since January 2015. The Spartans followed with an 8-0 shutout of University Christian. This week, St. Johns meet Oakleaf and district opponent Gainesville St. Francis, before taking on a Class 4A power in Tallahassee Leon.

NASCAR Cup Series at Daytona starting lineup breakdown

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR added to the spoiler for the race Saturday at Daytona International Speedway in hopes of increasing drag and slowing down the car.

The question will be whether that will also increase the potential for wrecks during the 160-lap Coke Zero Sugar 400 (7:00 p.m./ET on NBC).

The spoiler went from 53 inches long to 58 inches long. With that change, NASCAR stayed with restrictor plates that had holes 56/64ths of an inch in diameter.

At Talladega, the cars went so fast in practice — Jamie McMurray turned a lap at 203.975 mph before his car turned on him and he flipped wildly following contact with another car — that NASCAR opted to use plates with holes 55/64ths in diameter. With engine builders better prepared for the original restrictor plate, NASCAR hoped to slow the cars down enough with the bigger spoiler instead of changing the restrictor plate for Daytona.

The most powerful woman in fund management gives a rare interview

In an era of low-cost’index funds, it’s tough to be best known for your stockpickers. Fidelity Investments, the 72-year-old family-controlled company, made a splash in August with the industry’s first zero-fee index funds. Abigail Johnson, who succeeded her father as chief executive officer in 2014, gave a rare interview to Bloomberg Markets and brought along Kathleen Murphy, who leads the personal investing unit responsible for the new funds. Fidelity earned a record US$5.3 billion in operating income in 2017, but investors continue to pull money from its active equity funds. The company also grappled with sexual misconduct allegations last year. At their Boston headquarters, Johnson and Murphy, who turn 57 and 56 in December and January, respectively, discussed the challenges of their changing industry. ‘We need to find other ways to get people to give us a try,’ Johnson says.
