SILENTO (CHAUNCEY) SAYLES

PATTISON, MISS. > BASEBALL

Silento, a senior shortstop at Port Gibson High, stole seven bases in his final game, a 10--0 victory over Jefferson County, to finish with 103 steals this season and break the national record (96). He also set a national mark for steals in a game with 12 this year. A .541 batter, he swiped 3.4 bases per game for the Blue Waves, stole home six times and was thrown out only once. Silento will play at Chipola College (Marianna, Fla.).

COURTNEY CORRIN

PLAYA VISTA, CALIF. > TRACK AND FIELD

Courtney, a freshman at Harvard-Westlake (Studio City), leaped 20'11" to set a national freshman mark and a meet record at the Mount San Antonio College Relays in Walnut, Calif. The previous freshmanrecord, 20' 7¼", was set in 1979. Courtney, the national outdoor leader for all ages this season, also won the long jump at the Arcadia Invitational in April, with a leap of 20' 2¼", and the Junior Olympics title last July, with a jump of 19' 11½", setting an under-14 record.

ANDREW BENINTENDI

MADEIRA, OHIO > BASEBALL

Andrew, a senior centerfielder at Madeira High, scored three times in a 16--1 rout of St. Bernard to set a state record with his 174th run. The lefthanded leadoff batter had a .556 average at week's end for the 15--4 Mustangs and was four hits from tying the Ohio career mark (200). A 5'10" guard who holds the school basketball scoring record (1,752 points), Andrew was named the Division III state player of the year in 2012 for both sports. He will play baseball at Arkansas.

JORDAN WEED

TOMS RIVER, N.J. > SOFTBALL

Jordan, a senior righthander at Toms River East High, fanned all 21 batters she faced in a 9--0 win over Manchester High in the Ocean County Tournament to become the first pitcher in the event's 33-year history to throw a perfect game while whiffing every batter. She followed that up with a one-hit, 6--0 victory over Brick Memorial, striking out 15. Through Sunday, Jordan had 193 K's to go with a 0.65 ERA. She will pitch for Boston College.

PAUL DAVIS

LUBBOCK, TEXAS > TRACK AND FIELD

Davis, a 6'3", 225-pound junior at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, broke his own school shot put record by 3½ feet with a throw of 67' 4¼" at the Heartland/McMurry Invitational, the top collegiate mark this season. His heave earned him automatic entry into the U.S. championships in June. Davis won the NCAA Division III shot put title last season to help McMurry, which is in its first year of transitioning to Division II, earn the D-III championship.

ALAINA JOHNSON

TYLER, TEXAS > GYMNASTICS

Johnson, a junior at Florida, won the uneven parallel bars (9.950) and came in second in the vault (9.900) at the Division I team championships to lead the Gators to their first national title, 197.575--197.375 over Oklahoma. The next day she finished first in the bars once again for the individual title (9.9125). Johnson, who suffered a lower-back stress fracture earlier this season, sat out eight meets before returning to help Florida advance at regionals last month.

Wookiee of the Year

The Toledo Mud Hens, the Tigers' Triple A farm team, will wear Chewbacca-inspired uniforms for a pair of games against the Charlotte Knights this weekend. (That's May 4 and 5, of course, allowing the club to promote the dates as May the Fourth Be with You and Revenge of the Fifth.) The jerseys will then be auctioned off for charity—with luck, to buyers far, far away.
