Last week, Hillsinger helped them win three straight games by going 5-for-9 (.556) with six runs scored, two RBIs, a double, a home run and three stolen bases. The senior outfielder led off the game against then-No. 1 Calvert Hall with a homer and finished with two hits and three runs scored as Archbishop Spalding rolled, 10-3. The Radford-bound Hillsinger leads the Cavaliers in batting average (.469), runs (38) and stolen bases (22), and he has three homers.

The junior enjoyed a banner week, capturing eight first places in helping the Eagles defeat Seton Keough in a dual meet Wednesday and then win Saturday's Clash of the Titans Invitational at New Town. On Wednesday, Kimbers took the 100 meters in 11.9 seconds, tying a school record, and also won the long jump (18 feet, 1 3/4 inches) and high jump (5 feet).

On Saturday, Kimbers won the 100, 200 and high jump (school- and meet-record 18-4) and anchored the winning 400-meter relay team. Kimbers, who also plays field hockey and was a team captain in the fall, is undefeated this spring in the 100, 200 and long jump.
