Donnie Shin, Oakland Mills

STATS -- Having won the individual title at the Howard County championships and then taking top honors in the District V tournament with a 1-under-par 70, the standout junior has his sights on the Class 2A-1A state tournament set to start Tuesday at the University of Maryland. "His whole game is incredible and he has a fantastic approach. He rarely make mistakes," said Oakland Mills golf coach Jon Browne.

SIDELINES -- Shin is a native of Seoul, South Korea, who moved to the U.S. four years ago with his family. He said the biggest adjustment was learning a new language. Shin enjoys playing chess and listening to all kinds of music. He carries a 3.2 grade point average and plans to play golf when he goes to college.



Lauren Sterner, Mount Hebron

STATS -- The senior forward has been a goal-scoring wonder in helping the Vikings to a 12-0 record this season. Parked at the left post, Sterner has scored 19 goals and added two assists with a fine knack for redirecting shots and pouncing on rebounds. In her third season on varsity, she has scored at least one goal in all but one game this season.

SIDELINES -- Sterner, who maintains a 3.5 grade point average, also is a midfielder on Mount Hebron's lacrosse team, which has won nine straight state titles and 79 consecutive games. She has committed to playing lacrosse at Ohio State and plans to major in business. Sterner follows Maryland football, the Ravens and the Orioles.
