Athletes of the Week

May 19, 1999

Toni Jefferson

Western, track

The Doves senior won four gold medals at the Baltimore City Track and Field Championships. In the 100-meter dash, Jefferson ran 11.8 seconds, tying her own city record. She also won the 200 (24.8) and the long jump (18-3) in personal bests for this season, and she anchored the Doves' 800 relay team, which also ran its best time this season. A two-time All-Metro track performer and two-time All-City/County indoor track selection, Jefferson has signed with Maryland.

Damien Davis

Gilman, lacrosse

The Princeton-bound senior defenseman combined for 12 strip-checks, 10 ground balls, eight running clears, four hits and an assist in an overtime win over Boys' Latin and an overtime loss to McDonogh. Behind the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Davis, Gilman limited both opponents to a combined four goals in 15 extra-man situations. Despite battling a flu-like illness against McDonogh, Davis also worked the wings on faceoffs. He has 106 take-aways, 85 ground balls, 47 clears and 11 hits this season.
