GIRLS PLAYER OF THE YEAR Kristen Waagbo Mount Hebron, senior It was no secret that to stop the Vikings, you had to stop Waagbo. And opponents tried, assigning two -- and sometimes even three -- defenders on the 6-foot forward. But Waagbo was relentless, and once again she led all county players in scoring with 20.1 points a game. Blessed with a smooth release on her jump shot and a single-minded determination in the post, Waagbo also collected 12.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists a game. She completed her career with 1,496 points, which places her second on the school's all-time scoring list behind Doreatha Beck's county-best 1,676.

ANNAPOLIS -- Navy's water polo players will be able to tell their grandchildren about this one. Better still, they can tell their girlfriends about it next summer.If they're at a party and an American water polo match from the Olympics in Barcelona is on television, the Mids will be sure to point out Chris Humbert, a 6-foot-7 left-hander."If they want to impress some chicks," said Navy coach Mike Schofield, "they can say they guarded Humbert in the NCAAs."That's what they will do, or attempt to do, when they confront Humbert and top-seeded California-Berkeley today in the first round of the NCAA championships in Long Beach, Calif.
