Top male

Jason Smith, Broadneck

Track

After All-Metro seasons in football and basketball, Smith is running track for the first time in his junior year and last week in a quad meet set two school records. Smith won the 100- and 200-meter runs, setting Bruins records of 11.1 seconds and 22.7, respectively. Smith also ran a leg on the first place 4 x 200-meter relay and a leg on the second place 4 x 100 relay as the Bruins won the meet, 100-73, over runner-up Glen Burnie.

Top female

Jaime Long, Chesapeake

Softball

Long pitched and batted the top-ranked Cougars (3-0) to a pair of big Class 4A wins over ranked teams, extending the team's winning streak to 44. She fired a three-hitter with 10 strikeouts, retiring the last eight in a row, as the Cougars shut out No. 3 Severna Park, 2-0, on Thursday. The next day, Long drove in a pair of runs in a 5-0 victory over No. 11 Arundel.

Baseball

Norm Stephenson, Northeast

Stephenson pitched a five-inning one-hitter and homered three times in a 1-1 week for the Eagles. Tuesday in a 19-0 romp over West Lake of Charles County, Stephenson was 3-for-4 with five RBIs on two- and three-run homers, and lost his bid for a no-hitter with two outs in the last inning. The Eagles' left-hander struck out seven and walked two. In a 2-1 loss to North East of Cecil on Friday, Stephenson homered and doubled and is hitting .583 with nine RBIs.

Boys lacrosse

Todd Vizcarrondo, St. Mary's

Vizcarrondo led the then No. 4 Saints (6-1) to a pair of big wins over two highly regarded MIAA teams last week. The senior midfielder had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 10-7 win over then No. 7 Calvert Hall and four goals in a 9-6 triumph over then No. 3 Loyola (5-1) on Friday.

Girls lacrosse

Nicole Ross, Arundel

Ross scored seven goals in two games as the Wildcats ran their record to 4-0 with victories over Northeast by 14-7 and over Southern-Harwood, 11-10. The senior midfielder had four goals in the Northeast win and three more in the Southern game.

Tennis

Skip Joslin, Severn School

Down 5-1 serving at 15-all, Joslin came back to win his singles match, 7-5, and ignite a team comeback that resulted in a 4-3 victory over Mount St. Joseph (3-1) on Thursday. The Admirals RTC (2-2) were down 3-1 in a best-of-seven match before Joslin's singles victory and his part in a No. 1 doubles match win with Doug Sahmel by 7-6 and 6-4. The No. 1 doubles match triumph tied the team score at three and the Admirals' No. 2 doubles team then took their match in three sets to give Severn the overall win. "Skip's coming back to win the singles match was what got it going," said coach Rip Salmon.
