Nick Hoffner

Mount Hebron, baseball

The senior outfielder continues to build on last season's efforts for which he was named to the All-Howard County baseball team. In a 24-3 rout of Oakland Mills, Hoffner went 5-for-5 with two home runs - one of which was a grand slam - two doubles, six RBIs and three runs scored. He followed that up with a 2-for-3 day and an RBI in a 4-1 upset of then-No.14 Atholton.

Then Hoffner was 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBIs and two walks to propel the Vikings to an 8-7 stunner of then-No. 8 Glenelg. After batting .474 with five home runs and 21 RBIs as the leadoff hitter last year, Hoffner leads Mount Hebron in four categories - batting average (.556), RBIs (15), runs scored (14), and home runs (five). A third-year varsity player, Hoffner boasts a .647 on-base percentage.


Alicia Williams

Western, track

The junior led the Doves to three victories at Saturday's highly-competitive Morgan State University Track and Field Invitational. She won the 800 meters in a personal-best time of 2:18.11 and helped Western's relay teams to wins in the 4x800 meters and the 4x400 meters. She joined teammates Mariama Gondo, Latosha Wallace and Rokesha Williams to run a school-record 3:51.07 in the 4x400.

Williams, who helped the Doves set a state record of 9:30.0 in the 4x800 at the state indoor finals, combined with Rokesha Williams, Wallace and Midchild Carter to post a 9:37.26 in the 4x800 Saturday. Williams, an All-Baltimore City/County track selection indoors and outdoors who also finished second in the city cross country championships, is the defending city champ at 800 meters outdoors.
