Athletes Of The Week


December 12, 2007


Jordan Neville

Winters Mill, basketball

The 5-foot-9 senior guard had a triple double in her first game back after missing last season with a knee injury. Neville had 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and eight steals Friday night in a season-opening 63-47 win over North Carroll. A year ago, she tore an anterior cruciate ligament just 1:20 into the first game of the season. A versatile guard who was an All-County second-team selection as a freshman and sophomore, Neville is still considering where she wants to play in college. She has a 3.75 grade point average and takes classes at Carroll Community College.

Others considered -- Taylor Chapman, Atholton, basketball; Deanna Dydynski, Mount Hebron, basketball; Asia Logan, Digital Harbor, basketball.


Zach Martin

River Hill, football

Martin, a cornerstone of River Hill's defense for the past three years, capped a marvelous career by leading the top-ranked Hawks to the Class 2A state championship by a 14-7 score over No. 6 Eastern Tech (13-1) on Saturday. Playing on a sprained left ankle that did not allow him to practice Friday, Martin made 12 solo tackles and assisted on five others at linebacker. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior led the Hawks (14-0) to their first state title after they lost in the 3A final in 2006. River Hill tied the state season record for shutouts (11) and gave up only 21 points all season.

Others considered -- Sean Farr, Dunbar, football; Tony Mack, Owings Mills, wrestling; Sean Mosley, St. Frances, basketball; Arinze Obiako, Arundel, football; Malek Redd, River Hill, football.
