Athletes of the Week

January 09, 2002


Theo Brown

Severna Park, basketball

The 6-foot-2 senior shooting guard was Jordanesque last week. In a 79-70 loss to fourth-ranked Annapolis last week. Brown registered 47 points, four rebounds, and three assists. The 47 points, which included eight three-pointers, broke a 4-year-old school record of 46 points set by Matt Briggs in February 1998. The eight three-pointers tied a school record set by Tony Curro during the 1992-93 season. Brown followed up that performance by posting 38 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in a 76-63 upset of then-No. 20 Southern-AA on Friday. Brown, who connected on seven three-pointers, drained 13 of 15 free throws and scored 21 points in the fourth quarter. Brown, who averaged nine points a game last season, is scoring 28.3 points a contest for the Falcons (6-4).


Glenna Sullivan

Maryvale, indoor track

The Lions' freshman ran a couple of personal best times, including an impressive 10:51 in the 3,000 meters, at the Kutztown Invitational Saturday at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania.

Sullivan, the top distance runner on the area's No. 1 girls team, also ran a 5:25 in the mile, only two seconds off the winning time and good enough to take fourth in the prestigious meet that drew nearly 100 teams. Both times were school records at Maryvale, which is in just its third season of indoor track.

An All-Metro cross country runner, Sullivan completed her debut season in the fall by winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland Cross Country Championship.
