The junior midfielder had 17 goals and 10 assists in leading the Knights to a 3-0 start. Schwarzmann, a three-year starter, opened the season by tying a program record with nine goals in a 27-1 win over Francis Scott Key. She also had four assists. In Saturday's Baltimore Showcase at Dulaney, she opened with a three-goal, three-assist effort in an 11-5 win over Hereford before recording five goals and three assists in a 10-9 win over the host Lions. One of Schwarzmann's major assets is her speed. She entered the year with 107 goals and 60 assists in two seasons, along with 220 ground balls. Schwarzmann also is a three-year starter in soccer and basketball at Century.

Ben Winter

Centennial, baseball

A returning All-Metro pitcher-outfielder, Winter started his senior year for the No. 3 Eagles impressively. The left-hander, who is headed to Towson University, pitched and batted his team to two wins and a tie (which will be finished later in the season) last week. He pitched a five-inning no-hitter with eight strikeouts to beat Atholton, 13-0, on Friday. In that game, Winter also had a double, triple and four RBIs to complete his week with five hits in 10 at-bats with eight RBIs. Earlier in the week, he led the Eagles to a 12-1 rout of Lackey and helped his team play Eastern Tech to a 4-4 tie in a game called because of darkness. Last season, Winter led the Eagles to the Class 3A state final.
