Aaron Gabrielian

Century, baseball

Gabrielian unleashed an astonishing power display at Century in leading his team to 10-6 and 12-2 victories over North Carroll and Winters Mill, respectively.

The junior first baseman went 9-for-9 with four home runs and four doubles, drove in 11 runs and scored seven times.

He also pitched four innings, allowing no earned runs in a rain-suspended game against Francis Scott Key. The Knights lead, 3-1.

The left-handed hitter and pitcher is batting .536 with six home runs and five doubles for the season.

He also played varsity basketball and takes honors courses at Century. In the summer, he plays for the Mount Airy American Legion baseball team. GIRLS

Kristie Hurman

Chesapeake-AA, softball

The senior pitcher went 3-0 last week to lead the Cougars (11-1) to the area's No. 1 ranking.

After coming away with a 2-1 victory over No. 10 Northeast on Monday, Hurman came back with an impressive, 3-2 win over two-time defending Class 4A state champ and No. 2 North County, retiring the last nine batters to protect the one-run lead. She completed the perfect week with a 12-1 win over Broadneck on Wednesday.

She allowed two earned runs while striking out 30 and walking just three in 18 innings.

A spot starter last season behind All-Metro first-team pitcher Lindsay Ettinger, Hurman is making the most of her senior season as the Cougars' No. 1 starter. She is 10-1 with a 0.99 ERA and 85 strikeouts.
