* COACH OF THE YEAR: Ron Evans, Old Mill -- He coached the Patriots to their 13th Anne Arundel County championship and a state runner-up finish. "I surround myself with good coaches and together we try to collect kids and hold onto them long enough for them to become successful," Evans said.

* PERFORMER OF THE YEAR: Amanda White, Dulaney, Sr. (events: 800, 1,600 and 3,200) -- This three-time All-Metro selection reached new heights this season to earn the Baltimore Sun's 1993 Track Performer of the Year honors for the third straight time. Not only did White win her third 4A state titles in the 800, 1,600 and 3,200, but she became the first Baltimore-area female to win an individual event at the Penn Relays, taking the 3,000 in a state record 9 minutes, 46 seconds. White owns the state record time (10:29) in the 3,200, has the state's fourth-best ever time (4:56) in the 1,600, and her personal best of 2:14.9 in the 800 is just 1.3 seconds off the 4A record. White, who is headed for Stanford University, holds Baltimore County records in the 800, 1,600, 3,200 and as the anchor of the Lions' 3,200 relay.


* Sheraie Darby, Woodlawn, Soph. (300 hurdles) -- This speedy underclassman blazed to the Baltimore County (46.8 seconds), region (45.3) and 4A state titles in her best event, leading a 1-2-3 sweep in the regionals. She anchored the Warriors' 800 relay team (a personal best 1:43.7) and ran the first leg of the state runner-up 1,600 relay team (4:04.9), each of which won county and regional crowns.

* Raina Domneys, Old Mill, Jr. (long jump, triple jump, 100 hurdles) -- Anne Arundel County's Performer of the Year mastered four events, has school records in the long jump (18 feet, 3 1/2 inches) and triple jump (38-7) and a personal best (14.7 seconds) in the 100 hurdles, with her triple-jump effort earning a No. 3 national ranking. This repeat All-Metro first-team member captured county and regional titles in four events, won 4A state crowns in the long jump (17-2 1/4 ) and triple jump (38-3 1/2 ), was a state runner-up in the 100 hurdles (14.9) and placed third in the 300 hurdles (45.31).

* Kisha Jett, Hammond, Jr. (100, 200, 400) -- The aptly named Jett, a three-time All-Metro pick, captured Howard County, regional and 2A state crowns in the 100, 200 and 400 --es for the third straight year. She also anchored the Bears' 800 relay team to the 2A state crown. Jett's state time in the 200 was 24.1, missing her county record mark of 23.6. She ran 57.2 in the 400 and finished the 100 in 12.04 -- shy of last year's winning time of 11.7.

* Michelle Smith, Old Mill, Sr. (shot put, discus) -- This repeat All-Metro selection has a discus personal best of 139-7, a personal record of 41-2 in the shot put, 17-4 in the long jump and 36-3 in the triple jump. Smith, who is headed to Virginia Tech, overcame arm and hip injuries to win this year's county and regional discus crowns and was regional runner-up in the shot put. She won her second straight 4A state shot put title (39-5 1/4 ) and was state runner-up in both the discus (121 feet) and long jump (16-11 3/4 ).

* Kenya Warfield, Westminster, Sr. (high jump) -- Carroll County's Performer of the Year will participate on this summer's Junior National Olympic Track Team. She's considering attending Temple, Delaware or Michigan State. She leaped 5-6 -- one inch higher than last year -- to win her second straight 4A state high jump crown. A county champ in the 100 and 300 hurdles, Warfield was the Outstanding Female Athlete in the 11-team North County Invitational.

* Chesapeake 4X100 Relay -- The county and regional champs were unbeaten in the area, finishing third in the state with an area-best time of 49.5 seconds.

* Woodlawn 4X200 and 4X400 Relays -- The 800 relay team finished fifth in the state in an area-best 1:45.5. The team also tTC won the county meet in 1:43.7 and was clocked at 1:45.2 in the regionals. The state runner-up 1,600 team was clocked in an area-best 4:04.9.

* Glenelg 4X800 Relay -- The same combination which clocked an area-best 9:52.0 in the 3,200 relay also teamed for a runner-up finish in the 1,600 -- the day's final event -- to secure Glenelg's (57 points) upset win over runner-up Surrattsville (56 points) and

12-time, 2A champ Central (fourth, 42 points).
