BOYS

Scott Krieger

Calvert Hall, baseball

The senior third baseman continued his role as the catalyst for the No. 1 Cardinals, batting .500 last week, hitting his fifth home run, stealing three bases and scoring his 30th run of the season, the game-winner, in a 3-2 league victory over defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champ Mount St. Joseph.

Krieger's effort helped lift the Cardinals to an 11-0 league record, their 15th straight win and an overall record of 18-1. Krieger entered this week batting .520 with 25 RBIs. He is tied for No. 1 in the area with five home runs and ranks second among area leaders in runs scored.

Krieger, whose batting average has yet to dip below .500, will attend George Mason University in the fall.

GIRLS

Kaila Jenkins

Severna Park, softball

The standout junior pitcher went 3-0 last week -- including a 1-0 shutout over No. 2 North County that went nine innings -- to help the Falcons regain the No. 1 ranking in The Sun.

Jenkins opened the week by no-hitting South River, 4-0, before allowing just two hits and striking out 14 in the extra-inning win over North County. She finished the week with 41 strikeouts, allowing just one earned run in the Falcons' 20-1 win over Southern, and also went 5-for-11 at the plate with two RBIs and two runs scored. A two-time first-team All-Metro selection, Jenkins has led the Falcons to the Class 3A state championship game the past two seasons -- winning the crown in 2003 and finishing runner-up last spring. In earning Anne Arundel County Player of the Year honors last year, she went 19-4 with a 0.47 ERA and 301 strikeouts, also batting .493 with 21 RBIs and 16 runs.
