ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

April 16, 2008

Girls

Torrie Saunders

Annapolis, track and field

Saunders, a four-year varsity performer, captured four gold medals at North County's Knights Invite on Friday and was chosen Athlete of the Meet.

The senior set a meet record in the 300 hurdles (46 seconds), won the 100 hurdles and triple jump and was part of the winning 400 relay team, which also set a meet record.

Saunders is coming off a fine indoor season in which she earned first-team All-Metro honors.

She placed second in the 55 hurdles at the Class 3A state meet and finished fifth in the 300.

Still undecided on a college, Saunders has George Mason, Long Island and Bowie State as her top choices.

Others considered -- Erin Laschinger, Notre Dame Prep, lacrosse; Kayla Martinez, Arundel, softball; Kourtney Salvarola, Broadneck, softball.
