Athletes of the Week

December 10, 2003


Tristram Thomas

McDonogh Indoor track

Thomas kicked off his indoor track and field season in style by collecting two victories at a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association meet at Loyola on Thursday.

The junior won the 1,600-meter race in 4 minutes, 40 seconds and took the 3,200 in 10:18. Thomas' performances helped the No. 10 Eagles finish second behind No. 2 Mount St. Joseph.

Thomas is the reigning MIAA champ in the 1,600 and 3,200 in both indoor and outdoor track. He is also a two-time conference titlist in cross country. Thomas, who was selected to three All-Metro teams last year (cross country and indoor and outdoor track), was named The Sun's All-Baltimore City/County cross country Runner of the Year last month.

Last winter, Thomas did not lose to an MIAA rival in the 1,600 and 3,200.


Chandrea Jones

Institute of Notre Dame basketball

The All-Metro junior has a way of drawing attention the minute the high school basketball season tips off. In Wednesday's season opener, the 5-foot-9 guard scored 38 points and had eight rebounds, seven steals and five assists to lead the No. 8 Indians to a 72-50 victory over John Carroll in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game.

Jones started last season with a quadruple double - 20 points, 13 steals, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. In her freshman debut, she scored 29 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in a one-point overtime loss to Bullis Prep.

A two-time first-team All-Metro selection, Jones needs just nine points to hit 1,000. A year ago, she averaged 16 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists.
