Tom Farmer

Eastern Tech, football

Farmer fought off a block by the split end on a weak-side bootleg and delivered a crushing tackle to Randallstown quarterback Marcus McClain at the 1-yard line, knocking him out of bounds to prevent a two-point conversion in overtime.

Farmer then caught a third-down, 6-yard touchdown pass on a fade pattern, and Mitch Troyer kicked the extra point to upset the then-No. 1-ranked Rams, 7-6.

A senior 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver and cornerback, Farmer made five tackles, broke up two passes and returned three punts for 50 yards.

A first-team All-Metro selection last season, Farmer is being recruited by Division I schools such as Maryland, Marshall and Virginia.


Brittany Hadaway

Institute of Notre Dame, soccer

The junior provided critical stability in the midfield as an undermanned Indians squad, playing without 11 upperclassmen who were away on retreat, upset No. 12 Kenwood, 2-1, to win the White Division of the Kenwood Invitational Cup on Saturday.

Hadaway, a second-team All-Baltimore City/County selection a year ago, also scored three goals last week -- one in a 3-1 win over Leonardtown in the first round at Kenwood and the other in a 4-3 loss to Chesapeake-AA on Tuesday. She has played every minute this season, showing no signs of the hamstring injury that bothered her a year ago.

An Olympic Development Program state team player, Hadaway plays for the Baltimore Bays Under-16 club team, which won the State Cup last season.
