Student achiever: Adom Crew, 17. School: River Hill High School. Special achievement: A perfect grade point-average. What he says about it: "It's been tough. It's been a lot of time management, especially with playing soccer [as well]. When I get home, I have to budget my time, know exactly how much homework I have and how long it will take." What else he does with his time: Peer mediation. "Usually the compromise is to stay away from each other. It works -- it gives them a chance to sort things out."

C. Milton Wright sophomore Molly Stryker was a member of last season's Class 4A state championship team and is the starting sweeper for the Mustangs, who are 7-2-1. Stryker is 5 feet 9, and coach Paul Austin said, "You can't miss her in the back. She shows very good judgment. She knows when to attack the ball and when she has to slide. For a sophomore, she has very good maturity." How did you develop a knack for knowing when to slide and when to attack on defense? I've been playing soccer all my life.
