Athletes of the Week

March 31, 2004


Derek Chell

Mount Hebron, baseball

The junior was the catalyst for the Vikings in their three wins in the opening week, including victories over two defending Howard County champions, then-No. 15 River Hill and then-No. 7 Glenelg.

He went 1-for-3 against Glenelg; 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and six RBIs against River Hill; and 2-for-4 with one home run, one double and three RBIs against Wilde Lake.

Chell, a junior varsity player last season, has won a spot in a veteran lineup of eight returning starters. He plays third base or shortstop depending upon who pitches.

Also a varsity football player, Chell has a 3.3 grade point average and plays trumpet in the symphonic wind band.


Kadie Stamper

C. Milton Wright, lacrosse

The Mustangs' midfielder led her sixth-ranked team to a 3-0 start last week with 12 goals and two assists, including the game-winner in a double-overtime victory over St. Mary's.

Stamper, last season's Harford County Player of the Year, scored four goals in the 9-8 win over then-No. 6 St. Mary's. She scored the goal that tied the game at 8, sending it into a second overtime, and then scored the winning goal 15 seconds into sudden-death.

She also had five goals and an assist in an 11-9 win over then-No. 12 South River, as well as three goals and an assist in a 14-6 win over Archbishop Spalding.

Stamper, who also plays soccer for the Mustangs and carries a 3.5 grade point average, will play lacrosse at Johns Hopkins next year.
