This is an article from the Feb. 18, 2013 issue

ANNAPOLIS, MD. > TRACK AND FIELD

Hale, a senior at Annapolis High, lapped the field at the Anne Arundel County indoor championships to win the 3,200 meters in 9:18.01, breaking by 22.79 seconds the meet record of Olympian and former Broadneck High star Matthew Centrowitz Jr. Hale, who also won the 2012 Maryland 3A cross-country title, was named the All-Metro cross-country runner of the year by The Baltimore Sun. He will run for Navy.

KARLI BONAR

SHADYSIDE, OHIO > BASKETBALL

Karli, a 5'7" senior guard at Shadyside High, scored 28 points with seven three-pointers in a 52--49 Ohio Valley Athletic Conference semifinal win over Bridgeport High, breaking the state record for career treys, boys or girls, with 330. Through Sunday she was averaging 19.1 points on 41.3% shooting from behind the arc for the Lady Tigers. Karli will play at the University of Findlay (Ohio).

SYQUE CAESAR

PORT ST. LUCIE, FLA. > GYMNASTICS

Caesar, a fifth-year senior and co-captain at Michigan, won the parallel bars in the team's home opener with an NCAA-record 15.90 points, helping the No. 3 Wolverines upset Stanford to claim the Cardinal's No. 2 rank, 439.75--429.35. A week later he matched that score in a 439.35--413.40 win over Cal. (The previous record of 15.85 was set in 2008.) Caesar competed for Bangladesh at the 2012 London Games.

BRIANA ROBERSON

FULLERTON, CALIF. > BASKETBALL

Briana, a 5'7½" senior guard at Troy High, scored a game-high 20 points and had seven rebounds and four steals in a 52--30 defeat of Brea Olinda High, the Warriors' first victory over their rivals in seven years. A McDonald's All-America nominee, Briana returned this year from a right ACL tear that caused her to miss last season. Averaging 13.5 points and 5.5 assists, she will play for Stanford next year.

BROOKS BLACK

DOVER, PA. > WRESTLING

Brooks, a senior at top-ranked Blair Academy (Blairstown, N.J.), won his 285-pound match 4--0 over Ralph Nichols to help the Bucs beat second-ranked St. Edward High (Lakewood, Ohio) 32--20. He also won the heavyweight titles at the prestigious Ironman, Beast of the East and Powerade tournaments this season. InterMat's national No. 2--ranked heavyweight, Brooks will wrestle for Illinois.

ANDREA GEUBELLE
