The 6-foot, 200-pound senior running back-linebacker had an overwhelming game in last week's 37-36 overtime upset of then-12th-ranked, defending Baltimore County 4A-3A League champ Perry Hall, whose run of 20-consecutive wins against county opponents ended at Franklin.

Noble rushed for 202 yards and touchdowns of 1, 6, 23 and 66 yards on 29 carries. Eight of his 12 tackles were solo, and he also had an interception. The Indians improved to 5-0 overall and 4-0 in league play, avenging last year's 13-12 loss to Perry Hall.

The 6-foot-3 sophomore middle blocker pounded out 38 kills and had a hand in 13 blocks as the No. 5 Gators played some tough out-of-town competition last week, but remained unbeaten in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. In a five-game loss to Good Counsel that was decided 15-10 in the final game, Webster had 21 kills, two solo blocks, three block assists and two aces. In a three-game sweep of St. John's, from Washington she had nine kills, three block assists and two aces. In beating conference foe St. Mary's in three games, Webster had eight kills on nine attempts, four solo blocks and nine aces. As of the weekend, Webster, who has a 24-inch vertical leap, had 136 kills in 38 games, averaging 3.6 per game. Her hitting percentage, akin to a baseball batting average, was .601. Webster, who also plays basketball for the Gators, played Amateur Athletic Union volleyball with the Wild Blue club. She was selected to the USA Volleyball High Performance girls youth national team, but declined so she could join her Baltimore Cougars teammates at the AAU national basketball tournament.
