DeShawn Barrett

Patterson, wrestling

No wrestler in the state dominated his weight class more than Barrett, who pinned 29 of his 32 opponents. The 215-pound senior completed his unbeaten season with the Class 4A-3A state title last weekend by defeating Bowie's Zak Adomanis by default. He became the city's second state champion, joining Poly's Dennis Scott, a heavyweight champ in 1999.

Barrett's two-year record is 63-2 (57 pins). Among this season's other pins was one over region champ Josh Nutty of Lansdowne, who placed fifth at 2A-1A states. Barrett also decked Walt Whitman's Pat Lazear, a 215-pound region champ.


Keisha Eaddy

River Hill, basketball

The junior guard led the No. 1 Hawks (25-0) to their first appearance in the state final four with 67 points, 29 steals and 17 assists in three victories over Prince George's County teams in the Class 3A East regional playoffs.

Eaddy had 28 points and eight steals in a 76-42 win over Crossland, 22 points and 13 steals in a 69-47 win over Douglass, and 17 points, 10 rebounds, eight steals and seven assists in the 69-55 regional-final win over three-time defending state champ Gwynn Park.

Averaging 22 points, 9.1 steals, six rebounds and 4.1 assists this season, Eaddy has 1,037 career points and ranks fourth on the Hawks' all-time list.
