Tierra Wilkins and Ashley Myrick,
Wilde Lake girls' basketball
Wilkins, a senior guard, and Myrick, a freshman forward, both recorded double-doubles in Wilde Lake's 62-37 win over Howard on Friday. After missing the Wildecats' loss to Glenelg, Wilkins had 22 points and 13 rebounds. Myrick had 13 points and 11 rebounds, as both players recorded double-doubles in the same game for the first time this year. Kierra Wilkins, Tierra's twin sister, added 16 points against Howard.
"All of them are clicking, and when they all click well together and really work, we are very strong," Wilde Lake Coach Natalie Williams said. "They are quick, but they also see each other very well."
You Should See
Steve Sessa, sophomore,
He's known as the "man-child" at Hammond because of his impressive size and relative youth. Regardless of his age, the 189-pound sophomore has demonstrated that last year's performance as a freshman was no fluke. With a pin against Oakland Mills on Saturday, Sessa ran his record on the season to 17-3, including nine pins and an impressive decision over Chad LaPlanche of Chesapeake.
"Supposedly I have the body of a man and the mind of a child," Sessa said. "Last year people thought I just had the strength, but now people expect me to have the skill and the strength and put it all together."
