Athletes of the Week

BOYS

David Rollins

Aberdeen, track and field

At the Carroll Invitational at Century on Saturday, Rollins won gold medals in the 110 high hurdles and the 300 intermediate hurdles and finished second in the 400.

Rollins, a junior, scored 28 of the Eagles' 35 points, good for a fifth-place finish for the Aberdeen boys.

The reigning Class 2A state champion in the 300 intermediate hurdles, Rollins finished first in that event in 40.96 seconds. His time of 14.68 in the 110 high hurdles was better than the winning times of the Class 1A, 2A and 3A state champions last spring. His second-place time in the 400 was 14.68.

Rollins will be one of the runners to beat in all three of those events at the Harford County championships in May. At last year's county meet, he brought home four gold medals - in the 110 and 300 hurdles and on the 800- and 1,600-relay teams.

GIRLS

Allison Borchers

Fallston, softball

The junior second baseman hit for the cycle for a second time this season and led the No. 3 Cougars to three wins last week.

Borchers, whose .667 batting average ranks second in the metro area, had five hits - including a homer, triple, double and single - as well as three RBIs and a steal in a 15-1 win over Joppatowne. She reached on a walk and a fielder's choice and scored two runs, including the game-winner, in a 3-2 victory over then-No. 14 C. Milton Wright.

Borchers spent most of last season as a designated hitter after suffering a dislocated pinkie finger in a headfirst slide. Now, she has 12 RBIs and 15 runs scored in 18 at-bats. She has stolen four bases in four attempts.
