It has been a frustrating and painful soccer season at Rutgers for Kori Hunter (Atholton) and Hamisi Amani-Dove (Wilde Lake).Hunter, an Academic All-America and the first-team Mid-Atlantic Region goalie last year, hasn't played this season because of fractured legs. That's plural -- legs.He played all last season with stress fractures in both legs and didn't tell anyone, thinking it was shin splints. Then, in an off-season pickup basketball game, Hunter broke his right leg. A redshirt junior, he hopes to rejoin the team before the season ends.

Win or lose, the Scorpions would end up no worse than tied for second place in the county standings. Win or lose, they would remain top-seeded in this week's Class 3A Region I playoffs.Didn't mean much? Try telling that to Oakland Mills guard Mia Dammen.Dammen showed why she is the Scorpions' main spark. Her season-high 32 points, eight rebounds, six assists, four steals, and 12-for-14foul shooting pushed Oakland Mills to a 66-54 victory.

No one ever would mistake Mia Dammen and Stefanie Magro for twins, but on the basketball court the Oakland Mills High School backcourt could be called twin nightmares.Sure, they differ in certain areas.Magro is the better ballhandler, hence her point guard position. Sheis also the better shooter -- as her team-leading 49 percent field goal percentage reveals. From the 12- to 14-foot range, she can be deadly.Dammen brings other dimensions to her game. She's the most improved free-throw shooter on the team, having added about 20 points to her foul-shooting percentage, now at 67. She's also added an improved outside shot and has become a threat from the three-point range.
