Winter All-Met 2020

Winter All-Met 2020

At the end of each high school sports season, after The Washington Post determines its All-Met athletes, we highlight the top performers at a stylized photo shoot. This winter, we took things outside and used a school bus as our studio. Posing on a bus? It might have been a bit unnatural at first, but these athletes got their bearings and were quickly riding in style.

BOYS’ BASKETBALL | DEMATHA

Hunter Dickinson

A towering, not-so-secret weapon for the Stags since his freshman year, the 7-foot-2 forward finished a decorated high school career with another stellar season. Joined by first-team selection Earl Timberlake, Dickinson became a leader on and off the court as a senior. The Michigan signee averaged 17.7 points and 10.0 rebounds, consistently terrorizing Washington Catholic Athletic Conference defenses that had no answer for his size and skill. He also took on a bigger role in mentoring his young teammates, a task that helped DeMatha capture another conference title.

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL | BISHOP MCNAMARA

Madison Scott

While solidifying herself as one of the country’s best defenders, the senior led the Mustangs to their first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title since 2008. Against one of the area’s toughest schedules, the McDonald’s all-American guarded top players from around the country and in one of the nation’s most talented conferences. A forward with guard skills who had a major growth spurt entering her junior year, Scott averaged 13.3 points, 8.9 rebounds and two blocks. She will play at Mississippi.

BOYS’ SWIMMING | OAKTON

Anthony Grimm

The junior spent the first two months of the season recovering from a back injury, but he returned in time to make an impressive run through the postseason meets. He earned All-Met boys’ swimmer of the year honors for the second straight season after posting a state record of 53.86 seconds in the 100-yard breaststroke and a first-place finish in the 50 freestyle (19.79), just missing the state record and personal best of 19.67 that he set last season.

In her final high school meet, the senior set a national high school record of 50.89 seconds in the 100-meter backstroke and helped the Gators earn a team title at the Washington Metropolitan Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships. She also set a meet record in the 200 individual medley and won Independent School League titles in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. She will swim for Wisconsin in the fall, but first she will compete at the Olympic trials in Omaha in June.
