Sarah Walsh (Seton Keough), a sophomore at Colby College in Maine, leads her 8-2 team in scoring (16.5), rebounding (11.5) and shot-blocking (1.6) after being the leading rebounder and second-leading scorer as a freshman.

She was named Player of the Week in the New England Small College Athletic Conference after leading Colby to the Legg Mason Basketball Classic crown in Baltimore recently and, last season, she was named Maine's Division III Rookie of the Year and was selected third team.

Eric Newby (Mervo), who improved his triple jump from 46 feet to nearly 53 feet the last two seasons at Barton County (Kansas) Community College, has enrolled at the University of Florida and is expected to have an immediate impact with the Gators' track squad. Besides the triple, Eric has done 24-9 in the long jump. While at Barton, Newby helped the team claim four national JUCO titles indoors and out.

Sophomore Bobby Bergin (Mount Hebron) recently broke a school record at Mary Washington (Va.) College by clearing 6-10 in the high jump. He thus qualified for the indoor nationals after, as a freshman, qualifying for both the indoor and outdoor nationals.

Off his superior defensive work in a couple of games last week, Billy Wells (Dunbar), point guard for Delaware, recently was named Player of the Week in the America East Conference. The 6-foot senior put the clamps on the top gunners of Hartford and Vermont as the Blue Hens were posting a pair of victories. Meanwhile, he was in double figures both nights with 11 and 15 points.

Kiara Adams (Westminster) took a third in the shot put with a heave of 42-6 in her first collegiate outing for Rutgers against four other teams.

Corsley Edwards (Lake Clifton) couldn't have picked a better time to have a big game for Central Connecticut State. Going against nationally ranked Seton Hall, Edwards scored 30 points and hauled down nine rebounds as CCS was giving the Pirates all they could handle before succumbing, 84-73.

Dave Naftalin, a freshman from Lutherville, holds the top times in the 50 (22.25) and 100 freestyle (48.75) for Dickinson (Pa.) College's swim team.

Kellie Flynn (Bel Air), a junior, leads York (Pa.) College (4-5) in rebounds with 8.1 per game.

Karin Riesenfeld (Franklin) swims the individual medley and breaststroke and Whitney Raven (Annapolis) the butterfly on the Mary Washington College swim team. ... John Wainwright is a freshman wrestler (at 174 pounds) for York College with a 1-4 record.

Already, Washington & Lee (Va.) University, which features Bernie Norton (Calvert Hall), Pete Iwancio (Loyola), Wes Hays (Loyola) and Tom Melanson (Loyola), has been tabbed among the three top NCAA Division III lacrosse teams this spring by the Men's College Lacrosse Yearbook.

Norton was a third-team All-America selection last season and scored 46 points (29 goals, 17 assists). Hays, a goalie, was honorable mention All-America with a 5.78 goals-against average, second best in Division III.

Joe Brent (Mount St. Joseph) was a walk-on at N.C. State until he tossed a 50-foot triple jump out there the first day. He's now a solid member of the team and training in the decathlon.

Jeff Paul (Towson) is one of 11 returning lettermen on the Washington & Lee wrestling team and was 2-1 last year at 197 pounds. Also on the team is J. T. Rogers, a freshman from Gilman.
