WINNETKA, ILL. > Tennis
Robert, a senior at New Trier High, defeated teammate Jared Hiltzik (6--2, 6--2), becoming the program's first athlete to win back-to-back state titles as the Trevians took their second straight team title. Winner of the USTA's boys' 18 singles national open in February, he was named Midwest player of the year and is ranked No. 6 nationally. He will compete next year at Stanford.
LOS ALAMOS, N.M. > Track and Field
Chase, a junior at Los Alamos High, set a state record in the shot put (42'3¾") and anchored the record-setting 4 × 100 relay team (49.05) at the 4A state championships in Albuquerque. She also won the 100-meter dash (12.52) and the javelin (124'1"), and led off the third-place 4 × 200-meter relay to earn high-point honors (25) and lead the Hilltoppers to a third straight state title.
Steven Perry and Tyler Wells
MAXWELL, CALIF. > Baseball
Steven and Tyler, senior pitchers at Maxwell High, combined to set a national record for no-hitters in a season (11), including an 11--0 win over Tulelake for the D-V state title. Tyler struck out 14 through six innings, then asked the coach to put in Steven, his best friend, who fanned the last three batters.
