CANYON COUNTRY, CALIF. > FOOTBALL
Drew, a 6'3", 215-pound senior wide receiver at Canyon High, caught nine passes for 149 yards and four touchdowns in a 49--7 win over Golden Valley to set a state record with 4,585 career receiving yards. The previous mark was held by St. Louis Rams wideout Steve Smith, who had 4,486 yards at Taft High from 2000 to '02. Drew, who has since extended his record to 4,662 yards, is also closing in on Smith's state record for career receptions (271), with 246 through Sunday.
COLORADO SPRINGS > VOLLEYBALL
Haleigh, a 6'4" junior middle blocker at Doherty High, had 11 kills and a .769 hitting percentage in a 3--0 win over Coronado to help the 16--0 Spartans remain the only unbeaten 5A team in Colorado. A transfer student from Idaho Springs, Idaho, she helped Doherty (17--9 last year) to a five-game come-from-behind win over Cheyenne Mountain last month with a season-best 22 kills. Haleigh leads the state in hitting percentage (.602) and is on the junior national team. She has committed to Penn State.
ROSWELL, GA. > FOOTBALL
Lyons, a sophomore kicker at Dartmouth, drilled a 31-yard field goal with one second left to lift Big Green to a 13--10 win over Holy Cross. In the second quarter he converted his first collegiate field goal, a 34-yarder, to tie the score at 10. His ensuing kickoff was returned 69 yards by Crusaders receiver Kalif Raymond before Lyons tackled him to the turf, preserving the tie. Lyons is also the team's punter, and through Sunday he had booted 24 punts for an average 35.5 yards.
