BOYS

Damond Malloy

Pikesville, football

The 5-foot-7, 166-pound junior rushed for 300 yards and four touchdowns (on scoring runs of 1, 4, 15 and 85 yards) on 31 carries, and threw for 100 yards and scores of 13 and 30 yards to Reggie Dean in last week's come-from-behind 41-34 victory against Overlea.

Malloy, who also had two conversion runs, leads metro-area scorers with 21 rushing touchdowns and has 1,262 rushing yards. He has passed for 321 yards and three scores.

Malloy runs a 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, bench-presses 250 pounds and squats more than 400. His effort last week helped the Panthers to win their sixth straight game and improve to 6-1 -- two wins shy of the school record established in 1982.

GIRLS

Nyam Kagwima

Bryn Mawr, cross country

The Mawrtians' junior won perhaps the biggest race of her career at the 31st Georgetown Prep Classic on Saturday. She outkicked favorite Tenke Zoltani at the finish and posted a time of 18:59 time over the flat 3.1-mile course.

By outrunning Zoltani in the seeded race, Kagwima avenged a 61-second loss to the Dulaney ace at the Bull Run on Sept. 22.

The two-time Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champion also won the Spiked Shoe and the St. John's-Prospect Hall invitational meets earlier this season. Last fall, the All-Metro first-teamer was the second Maryland finisher at the Foot Locker national qualifier, running 36th overall. In track, she is also the IAAM champion at 800 and 1,600 meters.
