GENEVA, ILL. > VOLLEYBALL
Wicinski, a sophomore outside hitter at Northern Illinois, picked up her 1,000th career kill in a 3--0 win over Western Michigan and two days later helped the Huskies blank Miami (Ohio), leading the team in kills (38), hitting (.414) and aces (6) in the two matches. She was named the Mid-American Conference West offensive player of the week for the third straight time. Through Sunday she led NCAA D-I in points (6.58) and kills (5.62) per set. In 2010 she was MAC freshman and player of the year.
SPRINGFIELD, MO. > FOOTBALL
Dorial, a 6'6", 225-pound wide receiver at Hillcrest High, set a state record with 354 receiving yards on 13 catches in a 40--19 victory over Rolla High. He scored on receptions of 56, 68 and 75 yards to help the Hornets clinch a share of the Ozark Conference crown. Last year, Dorial set state career records for receiving yards (5,617 through Sunday) and touchdowns (63 through Sunday). The consensus No. 1 wideout in the class of 2012, he is 251 receiving yards from breaking the national career record.
SOMERSWORTH, N.H. > SOCCER
Rachel, a junior midfielder at Somersworth High, netted four goals, including the 100th of her career, in a 6--4 win over Portsmouth Christian. She scored all four in the first half, hitting the century mark on her second goal of the game, a header into the top right of the net off a corner kick. It was the fifth time she has had at least a hat trick for the Hilltoppers this year (six total). Through Sunday, Rachel has 32 goals this season and 106 for her career, 42 shy of breaking the state record.
