Xavier Rock, McDonogh



STATS -- A Georgetown Prep transfer as a junior, the University of Maryland-bound senior forward has 52 career goals. Rock made last year's first-team All-County and second-team All-Metro squads, and was named first-team All-State and an Adidas All-American. Last year's 18 goals and six assists led McDonogh to a 20-2-2 record and its third Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference crown.

SIDELINES -- Nicknamed "X," Rock has a 3.0 grade point average and scored 1,670 on his SATs. A member of the two-time national champion Casa Mia Bays during the offseason, Rock won the Golden Boot Award at last year's U.S. Youth Soccer Association national tournament, which is given to the player who scores the most goals in the event.

Mallorie Clary, Catonsville



STATS -- The top setter in Baltimore County, Clary averages 6.9 assists. She also serves at 94 percent. In a three-game sweep of Western Tech Friday, she had 13 aces. The 5-foot-4 1/2 senior was on the All-County first team last fall.

SIDELINES -- A member of the National Honor Society, Clary carries a 4.6 weighted grade-point average. She is considering a career in early childhood education. Also a softball player at Catonsville, the All-County shortstop spends most of her time on volleyball courts. She started playing at 7 and joined the Columbia Volleyball Club at 9. Last summer, she played for Columbia's 18-and-under Comets team. She also plays a lot of beach volleyball. Her parents own a home in Ocean City and her extended family includes cousin Megan Mitchell, an All-Metro hitter at River Hill in 2001.
