The 6-foot-7 Hall had 55 points in two Seahawks wins, including 34 in a stunning 86-84 overtime win over Annapolis on Wednesday.

Two nights before, the 6-1 junior had 27 points, 10 rebounds, four steals, four assists and four blocks in a 63-39 romp over South River.


Don Patterson, Old Mill

Patterson posted a pair of pins in the 189-pound division as the defending state and county champions (8-0) of coach Mike Hampe rolled to victories over two key rivals: Arundel, 40-21, and Broadneck, 65-3.


Tim Libby, Severn School

Libby won two individual events and was part of the Admirals' 400-yard freestyle and medley-relay teams in a 114-53 MSA victory over Archbishop Curley. Both the 100-yard backstroke (1:07.5) and freestyle (55.61) competitions went to Libby.
