Ronald Bias

Woodlawn, track and field

The senior won three individual events and finished second in a fourth event while leading the No. 10 Warriors to their ninth straight Baltimore County championship on Saturday.

Bias won his second straight county long jump title with a leap of 22 feet, 1 inch. He also won the high jump at 6 feet, 2 inches, and the triple jump at 45 feet, 10 inches. In the high hurdles, he ran second in 15.48 seconds.

He scored 38 of his team's 144 points.

Bias was an All-Metro indoor track performer who won the 4A-3A state high jump championship. He was an indoor regional high jump and 55 hurdles champ. He also won the outdoor regional long jump last season.

Bias, 6 feet 1, 165 pounds, was an All-County defensive back in football.


Ashley Gray

Northeast, softball

The senior All-Metro pitcher was a major factor in the Eagles' 4-0 week, with all of the wins coming against ranked opponents.

Gray was 3-0 for the week, allowing a combined eight hits in wins over then-No. 11 Old Mill (6-0), then-No. 2 Severna Park (4-2, eight innings) and then-No. 5 North County (5-1). She also had six hits -- including two triples -- and drove in three runs as the Eagles (13-4) jumped from No. 10 in the metro poll to No. 2.

With good velocity, control and movement, Gray is 9-2 with a 1.38 ERA, striking out 119 in 83 innings with just nine walks. She's also the Eagles' big bat in the middle of their lineup, hitting .500, with 12 of her 25 hits going for extra bases, and a team-high 16 RBIs.
