Athletes of the Week

December 24, 2003


Lance Fuller

Woodlawn, basketball

In three Woodlawn victories last week, Fuller, a 5-foot-11 senior guard, totaled 59 points, 12 rebounds, 17 assists and 10 steals.

In the No. 12 Warriors' 71-61 victory over Baltimore County rival Randallstown on Wednesday, he scored 21 points to go along with five rebounds, six assists and four steals in helping Woodlawn to its first win over the Rams in five seasons.

Friday against Kenwood, Fuller, a second-year player for Woodlawn after transferring from Cardinal Gibbons, had 17 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals in a 57-33 win.

On Saturday vs. Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) - an 81-66 Warriors win - Fuller missed the first quarter because he was taking his SATs, but still posted 21 points, three rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

For the season, Fuller is averaging 18 points, five assists, four rebounds and four steals a game.


Rokesha Williams

Towson Catholic, track

In her first track meet in nearly two years, the Owls junior turned in strong winning performances in three events at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland group meet Friday at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex.

Williams, a transfer from Western, won the 55 meters in 7.3 seconds, the 300 in 42.0 seconds and the 500 in 1:20.80.

She finished third at the Junior Olympics as a 14-year-old in the 200 hurdles, but had been sidelined since by back and hamstring injuries. She has taken the last year off to get healthy, Owls coach Dion Hylton said.

Unable to hurdle while she continues to overcome those injuries, Williams has excelled as a sprinter. She has competed with the United Stars out of Philadelphia and has a Junior Olympic title in the 800 meters.
