Matt Hostetler

River Hill, football

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior was 9-for-15 for 115 yards and one touchdown and rushed for the game-winning score in last week's 12-7 upset of No. 8 Wilde Lake. Playing defensive back for the first time in high school, Hostetler, nephew of former NFL quarterback Jeff Hostetler, had an interception, 10 tackles (seven solo) and caused a fumble.

It was the second straight victory for 6-year-old River Hill, which has defeated both Wilde Lake and Oakland Mills for the first time in school history.

On the season, Hostetler has thrown for 502 yards, including five touchdowns, and rushed for four more. Defensively, Hostetler has 30 tackles (21 solo) and has blocked a punt. A 4.0 student with a 1,200 SAT score, Hostetler is being recruited by Princeton, Brown, Towson, Richmond and Delaware.

GIRLS

Martha Mitchell

Franklin, soccer

The sophomore striker enjoyed perhaps the most productive day of any athlete this fall when she scored eight goals in two games to lead the Indians to the championship of Westminster's girls soccer tournament on Saturday.

Mitchell couldn't miss, scoring eight goals on nine shots in the two-game tournament. She also scored the key goal of the event -- the game-winner in overtime that shocked previously unbeaten and No. 6 Westminster, 5-4, in the final.

Against the Owls, Mitchell had a hand in every Indians' goal, booting in four and assisting on the other. Earlier in the day, she scored four times to help the unranked Indians oust LaPlata, 6-1.

A transfer from Mount de Sales, Mitchell boosted her season totals to 10 goals and two assists as the Indians improved to 3-2-1.
