GRESHAM, ORE. > TRACK AND FIELD
Haley, a junior at Gresham High, set a high school girls' javelin record with a throw of 181'2" at the Aloha Relays in Beaverton, Ore. The defending 6A titleholder, Haley comes from a throwing family: Her father, Dean, was the 1982 NCAA shot put and discus champion at Oregon; her older brother Sam set the boys' javelin record in 2010; and her cousin Ryan Crouser set the boys' national discus mark last spring.
CORDOVA, TENN. > GOLF
Zachary, a junior at Memphis University School, won the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley in Graniteville, S.C., by three strokes with a seven-under 209. He beat 53 of the world's top juniors for his first international title and rose to No. 11 among 18-and-under U.S. boys. In 2011 he won the Wally Tournament, which features the top 25 junior amateurs in Tennessee, and was the state's junior player of the year.
GLENWOOD, MD. > LACROSSE
Megan, a sophomore attacker at top-ranked McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.), scored a game-high seven goals in a 20--9 win over No. 2 Garden City (N.Y.) in the inaugural Maryland--New York Challenge. With the win, McDonogh extended the nation's longest active girls' lacrosse streak (now at 65)—while snapping Garden City's streak at 55. Megan was a 2011 Under Armour Underclassmen All-America.
FORT COLLINS, COLO. > TRACK AND FIELD
Raymond, a senior at Fort Collins High, broke Colorado's 100-meter record with a 10.27 at the Dakota Ridge Invitational in Lakewood, the second-fastest wind-legal time in the nation this year. He also won the 100 at the Arcadia (Calif.) Invitational against a national field (10.41). Raymond has the top 200-meter time in the country this year (20.87) and the state's fastest 400 meters (47.79).
PAWCATUCK, CONN. > SOFTBALL
Andrea, a junior at Stonington High, fanned all 21 batters in a 3--0 win over Norwich Free Academy to become the second softball pitcher in state history to throw a perfect game in which every out was a strikeout. A week later she threw a no-hitter, striking out 14 of 16 batters, and hit a home run in a 17--0 victory. A centerfielder last year, she is 4--1 with a 1.07 ERA in her first varsity season on the mound.

A two-time All-America, Frittelli is a finalist for the 2012 Ben Hogan Award, given to the top U.S. college golfer.

Here, the worst of the modern era's worst.
