BOYS

Mitch Guest

Glen Burnie, basketball

Guest, a 5-foot-8 senior guard, captured Most Valuable Player honors at last weekend's J.T. Bogle Invitational, where he led the host Gophers to the tournament championship.

In a 65-48 victory over Edgewood in a first-round game Friday, Guest, an All-Metro selection last season, scored 20 points to go along with eight rebounds, five assists and three steals. He followed that with a 27-point, six-rebound, five-assist and three-steal performance Saturday, leading the No.7 Gophers (6-0) to a 69-57 win over DuVal of Prince George's County in the tournament final.

With his 47 points in the two games, Guest, who scored 41 against Patuxent two weeks ago, became only the fourth Gopher to surpass the 1,000-point plateau.

For the season, Guest is averaging 26.6 points, five rebounds, four steals and four assists per game.

GIRLS

Bri Gauthier

St. Mary's, basketball

With consistent all-around performances, the junior point guard led the No. 16 Saints (8-3) to four wins last week. In the process, she became the seventh player in program history to score 1,000 points.

Gauthier totaled 71 points, 25 assists, 22 rebounds and 12 steals in the four games. Two wins came in the Holiday Hoops Classic in Lanham, including the Saints' 46-35 semifinal win over Forestville Saturday when she finished with 22 points to reach 1,000. The Saints went on to finish as runners-up to Holy Cross Monday.

A second-team All-Metro performer last season, Gauthier is averaging 16.8 points, 5.9 assists, 2.9 steals and 4.5 rebounds as the Saints' team captain and catalyst.
