STOCKBRIDGE, GA. > TENNIS
Taylor, a sophomore at the USTA's player development headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla., won the girls' singles and doubles titles at the 2012 Australian Open to become the first American to sweep both junior titles at a Grand Slam event since Lindsay Davenport at the 1992 U.S. Open. Taylor upset Russia's Yulia Putintseva 6--1, 3--6, 6--3 in the singles final, and she teamed with Gabrielle Andrews (Pomona, Calif.) to win the doubles crown. Taylor, 15, is the USTA's top-ranked female under 18.
ORLANDO > TRACK AND FIELD AND FOOTBALL
Marvin, a senior at Boone High, broke the national high school indoor 55-meter record, running a 6.08 at the Jimmy Carnes Youth Invitational in Gainesville, Fla. A two-time state titlist in the outdoor 100 and 200, he won gold in the 100 at last year's Pan American Junior Games and at junior nationals. An all-metro wide receiver, Marvin had a one-handed 32-yard touchdown catch at the Under Armour All-America game in January. Next year he will play football and run track at Florida State.
PLYMOUTH, MINN. > ICE HOCKEY
Kelly, a sophomore center and co-captain at Benilde--St. Margaret's, scored three straight goals within 22 seconds during a 9--2 win over Totino-Grace to set a Minnesota high school record for the fastest hat trick. Her third-period scoring spree more than halved the previous mark (54 seconds). Kelly also netted a goal in the second period and had an assist in the Red Knights' victory. Through Sunday she was eighth in the state with 67 points; last year she had a team-high 52.
