CHANDLER, ARIZ. > TRACK AND FIELD
Jasmine, a senior at Chandler High, won four events at the Great Southwest Indoor meet in Albuquerque, each with a top six national performance. She won the 60-meter dash in 7.42 seconds (tied for second), the 200 in 24.43 (tied for fourth), the long jump with a leap of 19' 7" (fifth) and the triple jump with a 39'10½" (sixth).

WINNIPEG > FOOTBALL
Coombs, a 5' 9", 185-pound freshman running back at the University of Manitoba, was named MVP of the International Federation of American Football's third annual 19U International Bowl, leading the World Team, comprising eight countries, to a 35--29 win over the U.S. He had 147 yards and two TDs on 14 carries to hand the U.S. its first-ever loss in international competition. Coombs, who gained a Canada West--leading 1,203 all-purpose yards for Manitoba, was named All-Canada in 2011.
CAROLINE AND KATHERINE COYER
OAK HILL, VA. > BASKETBALL
The twin sisters and Oakton High senior co-captains passed two milestones on a single play in the undefeated Cougars' 54--45 win over Robinson High. Katherine, a 5'11" shooting guard, hit a 12-foot baseline jumper to score her 1,000th career point off a pass from Caroline, a 5'10" point guard, who set a Virginia AAA record with her 532nd career assist. (Caroline has also scored 1,475 points.) Both girls will play at Villanova next year.
