* Jamaal Smith, Suitland, Sr.--He placed sixth in the shot put at the Maryland 4A outdoor championships last spring at 45-10 1/4, and finished second at 46-10 at the F.I.T. Relays last weekend.

* Dwayne Thomas, Northwestern, Sr.--He ran on the record-breaking 4x400 team at the Penn Relays last spring. Thomas will run the 500, 800 and at least two relays and has developed into one of the area's most versatile runners after a strong cross-country season.

* Crystlle Church, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sr.--Will compete in the 55-meter hurdles, 300 and the 4x200 and 4x400 relays. "She will have the opportunity to participate in both relays because she is one of our strongest athletes," Raiders Coach Larry Colbert said.
