Cristi Samaras, 16, of Annapolis

School: Annapolis High

Accomplishments: Cristi, vice president of her junior class this year, has been elected vice president of her senior class.

She is a member of the girls soccer, basketball and lacrosse teams at school in addition to the basketball team at St. Constantine and St. Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Annapolis.

One of Cristi's greatest thrills occurred when, during a trip to Vail, Colo., with the lacrosse team, she was invited to play on an adult lacrosse team. Team ULMAN, Cristi says, has "some of the best lacrosse players in the country." As it turned out, the team won the national shootout title during the Vail competition.

Her plans include attending college, preferably one with a strong women's athletic program such as the University of Virginia, and going on to medical school.

Comments: "A quote by Joe Namath I read in a book once, said 'If you aren't going all the way, why go at all?' To me this quote runs the gamut of all aspects of life. It relates most to me, at my present age, through sports. However, it is a positive foundation and encouraging statement to help anyone in any realm of life."
