Terence McAuliffe, Glenelg Country

STATS -- The senior captain has 15 goals and eight assists, as the Dragons (7-1-3) have made a smooth transition from Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference champs last year to first place in the B Conference's second division with a 5-1-3 mark. A four-year varsity starter, McAuliffe sees time at striker and in the midfield and will occasionally be used on defense to help protect leads.

SIDELINES -- McAuliffe has been a regular volunteer for the Special Olympics in Howard County throughout high school, coaching soccer, basketball and bowling. During the summer, he organized a fun day for the Special Olympics as part of a community action project through the school. McAuliffe maintains a weighted 3.34 grade point average and is undecided on a college but plans to study biology.

NICOLE SHOUSE, HOWARD

STATS -- Shouse may be just a freshman, but she's a veteran when it comes to running. She began running turkey trots in first grade and has been a member of the Howard County Junior Striders. Shouse has made a good early impression for the Lions, taking individual honors in a quad meet at Glenelg and finishing sixth (20 minutes, 6 seconds) in the seeded division of the Harford Invitational on Sept. 30.

SIDELINES -- Family and running go hand in hand in the Shouse household. Her father, Paul, has coached with the Striders program, and her mother, Karen, and three younger sisters have taken up the sport. Shouse says she loves watching football with her father - they both like the Washington Redskins - and science is her favorite class. Sheplans to run outdoor track in the spring.
