Justin Klein of Gilman and Kisha Jett of Hammond are the final Athletes of the Week for this 1990-91 scholastic year.

They join 70 other weekly selections who will be saluted by The Evening Sun at the 25th annual Athletes of the Year awards luncheon, set for June 5 at the Towson Sheraton. Each weekly winner and his/her coach and parents are invited. The Evening Sun will name the 1991 male and female Athletes of the Year.

Broadneck's Betsy Given and Poly's Chris Lafferman were the 1990 Athletes of the Year, the latest in a growing list of outstanding athletes that includes former Oriole Jim Traber (Wilde Lake), former Notre Dame All-Americas Tom Gatewood (City) and Mike Creaney (Loyola), pro soccer player Darryl Gee (Wilde Lake), Frederick Keys pitcher Mark Carper (Atholton) and West Virginia point guard Rosemary Kosiorek (Mercy).

* The metro area is losing two more long-time high school sports administrators, Mildred Murray and Paul Rusko. Previously, Jean Boyd, supervisor of physical education and athletics for girls in Anne Arundel County, had announced her retirement effective next month.

Murray, who served the girls' program in Baltimore County, will retire after 43 years of service as a teacher, coach and supervisor.

A June 12 dinner is planned to honor Murray at Martin's West (6:30). For information, contact Carolyn Schweikert (887-4038) or Lynda Slyder (668-0396).

Rusko, supervisor of physical education and athletics for boys in Anne Arundel County, has served in the administrative capacity for 20 years. Two days after he was discharged from the U.S. Army in March, 1959, Rusko accepted his first assignment in the county as a teacher and coach at Severna Park middle school, then located in Annapolis. The following year, the present Severna Park junior-senior high opened its doors.

* Tim McMullen, the only director of athletics in the 10-year history of Broadneck High School, is stepping down from his supervisory position. He will stay on as a teacher.
