Veronika Volkov, Pikesville



STATS -- A 5-foot-4 forward, Volkov averaged 6.5 rebounds to help the Panthers to an 18-4 season, as they posted the most wins in school history. The junior also runs cross country and is the center fielder for the softball team.

SIDELINES -- A 4.0 student who takes four Advanced Placement classes and is a member of the National Honor Society, Volkov plans to become a doctor, most likely a pediatrician. Her older brother Andrey is in medical school and her mother was a doctor in their native Chelyabinsk in western Siberia before the family came to America when Veronika was 3. Volkov also participates in Model United Nations, works on the yearbook and enjoys reading and discussing books with the Greatness in Literature Club. She hopes to volunteer this summer at Sinai Hospital in pediatrics.
