The word "tomboy" is an insult to some girls. To Shalaiyah Sommerville, it was an apt description. "I was a tomboy," she said. "[My mother] always made me wear a dress, but I would put shorts on underneath so that I could race the boys." Those races would provide the foundation for a track and field career that has helped Sommerville graduate from running lightpole to lightpole in her neighborhood to becoming one of the best sprinters in the metro area. The Western senior is putting the finishing touch on a high school resume that includes individual state crowns in the 200- and 400-meter sprints, 15 individual regional and Baltimore City titles and four appearances on the All-Metro team in indoor and outdoor track and field.
