Kacy Williams is a straight-A student who helped lead her school's girls basketball team to its second state title in three years.

While Kacy is known as a good student, she's better known as an athlete. In soccer, she's been named to All-County, All-Metro, All-State and All-South teams. In basketball, The Sun's Co-Player of the Year belongs to All-County and All-Metro teams, as well as to the Maryland Women's Basketball Coaches Association's Senior All-Star and All-Academic teams. USA Today named her Honorable Mention Player of the Year for Maryland, and Nike named her to its All-American, All-Star team. She won the Army Scholar Athlete award at Hammond.

Off the field, Kacy is co-chair of the student advisory council of the Black Student Achievement Program (BSAP). She has been a member of Hammond's African Awareness Club since her freshman year and was vice president her junior year. She is a member of the National Honor Society.

Outside school, she referees for the Columbia Basketball Association and has volunteered at the Helping Hands Enrichment Program. She's also involved with cable Channel 6, where she does a sports talk show and has a segment called, "Kacy's Corner."

Plans: She wants to study journalism to become a television news anchorwoman and will attend Georgetown University next fall on a full athletic scholarship.

Her comments: "My parents have been on me since [my brother and I] were younger," she says. "Our parents never let us go below their standards. Anything below a 'B' is looked at very badly. It's just not acceptable. We all strive for very high grades."
