Sports: Cross country, indoor track and outdoor track

Other activities: Senior Class president; Student Government Association, National Honor Society and DECA; one of two students on Board for Secondary School Recognition.

College: Purdue University.

This young man ranks as one of the most outstanding in the nine years of the academic-athletic team.

Sixteen admiring people took the time to write a letter of recommendation on this superb student-athlete. An All-County performer in cross country and track (indoor and outdoor), Anderson also is exceptional in the classroom.

It's no wonder that he is a top candidate for Broadneck valedictorian and is in Who's Who Among American High School Students. A MarylandDistinguished Scholar, Anderson was one of only two students in school to take Latin IV. He also won the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Most Outstanding Math and Science Student (1989-1990).

"In all the years I've been a teacher and coach (over 20 years), Derek's resume is the most impressive I have ever seen," said Broadneck athletic director Tim McMullen.

Sports: Soccer and basketball

Other activities: National Honor Society; treasurer, Student Government Association and Junior Civitan; nominated for Leadership Seminars at College of Notre Dame and ValleyForge; volunteer at St. Stephen's Church Nursery.

College: Wake Forest on a basketball scholarship.

St. Mary's athletic director and girls basketball coach Carmine Blades calls Coakley "an example of an All-American girl."

She's an "All-American girl" with the ability to bounce back from setbacks. After accepting a full scholarship for basketball to Wake Forest and anticipating a great senior season, she injured her knee a few games into the season and ended up sittingon the sidelines.

"When she suffered the bad injury, she rebounded quickly to overcome the adversity even though she was inwardly devastated," wrote honors physics instructor Cyril J. Stockhausen. "Laurais a winner in the true sense of the word."

Other activities: Winning on Wellness; Our Lady of the Fields Church; Severna ParkAmerican Legion summer baseball team; Scholar-Athlete Award entire high school career; works part-time as youth soccer referee for countyRec and Parks.

College: Richmond, Virginia Tech or the Universityof Maryland.

An All-County performer and NCAA Division I prospectin both soccer and baseball, Budzinski is ranked 36th in a class of 401 and quite obviously is one of the school's more outstanding students.

By combining academic and athletic excellence so aptly, Budzinski has several options for college. He has received partial academic scholarships to the University of Miami and Campbell University andis still looking at Richmond, Virginia Tech and Maryland.

With all that Budzinski has accomplished, probably his greatest achievement came when soccer teammate 16-year-old Ken Taylor Jr. presented him with a plaque for serving as team captain and paid him tribute for being "a true leader on and off the field."

Taylor reiterated his glowing remarks in a letter: "Mark is a role model for the rest of his teammates and peers. I feel very lucky to be known as one of his friends."

This extremely well-rounded young woman is involved in all facets of high school life while ranked No. 2 in a class of 361 and excelling in three varsity sports.

"To put this much time into extracurricular activities and still maintain a very high grade-point average is an indication that Miss Daniels is a highly organized and responsible person," wrote Glen Burnie girls soccer coach and chemistry teacher Ron Alberico.

Daniels'academic standing is even more incredible when one considers that she is involved in so many school activities and takes four advanced placement classes.

Corporate law and possibly jumping into politics later are Daniels' goals, as she never stops broadening her horizons.This summer she will visit Europe as part of the Presidential Classroom's International Program.
