Don't look now, but there's another budding talent in track and field. Elan Hilaire, a 13-year-old eighth-grader from Owings Mills, bested opponents as much as five years older than her and won the 200- and 400-meter races at the Morgan State High School Invitational yesterday at the university's Hughes Stadium. A total of 12 meet records were either set or tied. Hilaire, who will attend Park after graduating from Sudbrook Magnet Middle School in Pikesville later this year, crossed the finish line in the 200 in 25.18 seconds and the 400 in 55.70.

Devon Williams, The Sun's Athlete of the Year for the 2004-05 school year, is returning to Maryland, but she said she will not run cross country or track and field for a high school - public or private - here. Williams - a junior who moved from Towson to Eugene, Ore., last year to train with Margo Jennings, who molded Olympic champion Maria Mutola - said she needs to take just three more courses to graduate by January. Williams said she intends to enroll at a public high school near her family's home - "Parkville, Loch Raven, I don't know," she said - but will concentrate on her schoolwork and working out to earn a scholarship from a number of colleges recruiting her. "I just want to take my classes and run fast times for college," said Williams, who, despite suffering a stress fracture in her right shin four weeks ago, has been pursued by Tennessee, LSU, Texas and UCLA.

Welcome back from Thanksgiving weekend! How was the big night? Did anyone catch The Bridge at Rams Head? Or Bob Seger the night after? The Seger show was, according to reporter Chris Kaltenbach, especially good. This week, the big shows are by Erykah Badu and Ryan Adams; we'll have reviews for at least one of them. Elsewhere this week: "Dune," J. Roddy Walston and the Business, and Carly Ptak. On Monday , indie pop singer Devon Williams performs at Golden West.
