Adam Grossman

Pikesville, track and field

At the Class 2A state championship meet last weekend, the senior placed first in three events and second in another to pace the Panthers to a second-place finish. He earned gold medals in the 100 meters with a time of 11.03 seconds, the 200 in 22.4, and the 400 relay in 43.34. The times in the 400 relay and the 800 relay (a silver medal-winning time of 1:30.73) were school records. Grossman became the first Pikesville performer to collect three gold medals at a state championship meet. A Baltimore City/Baltimore County selection in outdoor track last spring and indoor track last winter, Grossman plans to run at UMBC next season.

The junior attacker helped the No. 1 Vikings polish off a 19-0 season by contributing a state-record six assists to their Class 3A-2A title victory over Annapolis on Wednesday.

As the go-to player for the Howard County champs, Waagbo finished the season with 61 goals and 33 assists. She averaged 3.4 goals a game. A second-team All-Metro lacrosse selection as a sophomore, Waagbo was also a first-team All-Metro basketball player and Howard County Player of the Year after averaging 20.1 points and 10.1 rebounds and leading the Vikings to the county title last winter.
