STATS -- Dortch, a junior who has run cross country and been a member of the varsity dance team, is in her first season on the badminton team. A student of modern dance in middle school, she has performed spiritual dancing at her church.

SIDELINES -- Carrying a 95-percent academic average, Dortch has wanted to become a surgeon since she met Dr. Ben Carson, the prominent neurosurgeon, when he operated on her cousin at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She plays the clarinet in the school pep band and helped plan the homecoming dance. She has volunteered at her church and at Coppin State, where she is a member of the Upward Bound Program.
