Athletes Of The Week

Athletes of the Week

October 23, 2002

BOYS

Jason Stone

Westminster, football

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior receiver and defensive back had another hallmark game in last weekend's 35-27 victory over Frederick High. Stone's six receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown, his 15-yard scoring run and his fourth interception of the year led the Owls (6-2) to their sixth straight win.

Stone's rushing score tied the game at 7, and his 40-yard reception for another score put the Owls ahead for good, 21-19. Stone also has returned a kickoff 90 yards for a score this season for a team-high 12 total touchdowns. The first-team All-Carroll County pick rates among the area's top three receivers with 39 receptions for 614 yards and 10 touchdowns. Stone had only seven receptions for 139 yards and two scores last year, but intercepted nine passes.

Stone is a 3.8 student with a 1,230 SAT score, and hopes to play football at Richmond, Dartmouth, Bucknell, Kent State or Pennsylvania.

GIRLS

Krissy Browning

Fallston, field hockey

The junior right wing, in her first season as a varsity starter, enjoyed a big week at a big time for the No. 3 Cougars.

In shutout wins over three of the Cougars' top rivals in Harford County, Browning was in on five of the team's eight goals, including the game-winner in Friday's 1-0 win over North Harford to clinch the county crown.

She got last week started with a two-goal performance in a 4-0 win over C. Milton Wright on Tuesday, and added two assists in a 3-0 win over Bel Air on Thursday before Friday's heroics. Following a disrupted penalty corner, Browning was at the right post to put away an unassisted goal for the win.

Browning, who was the first reserve into games last fall, has five goals and five assists this season.
