TEMPERANCE, MICH. > SOCCER

Barker, a sophomore forward at Division III Adrian College, led all divisions of college soccer—men's and women's—with 13 game-winning goals, to pace the Bulldogs to their first Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association regular-season championship in the program's 23 years. Her 25 goals and 57 points led the conference and were single-season school records, and her 101 career points also set a school mark. Barker was named the MIAA conference MVP.

CRAIG CHENEY

SHERWOOD, ORE. > WATER POLO

Cheney, a sophomore utility player at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, led the Engineers with 50 goals to earn first-team All--Northern Division honors from the Collegiate Water Polo Association. On defense he had team-high marks in steals (52) and ejections drawn (59) to create 6-on-5 offensive advantages. Last season he scored 49 goals for the second-highest freshman mark in program history and was named the conference rookie of the year.

KADIE AND AMBER ROLFZEN

PAPILLION, NEB. > VOLLEYBALL

Kadie and Amber, 6'3" fraternal twins and junior outside hitters at Papillion--LaVista South High, led the Titans to their second straight Class A state title—and 82nd straight win over two seasons—with a 3--0 sweep of Burke High. Kadie was named the state Gatorade volleyball player of the year, a title won by Amber last season. Both are Nebraska recruits and members of USA Volleyball's girls' youth national team.
