Baker High, rushed 35 times for 272 yards and four touchdowns—including a 75-yard run on the Bees' first play—in a 38--36 win over Fayetteville-Manlius High, avenging their only loss this season to advance to the Section III, Class 2A final.

Stephanie, a 6'2" senior middle blocker at Lafayette High, had 40 attacks, 23 kills and 12 blocks to lead the Lancers to the Notre Dame Academy Tournament title in Quincy, Ill., where she was named MVP. The team won all five of its matches, for 65 straight victories dating back to its Class 4 state title last year, which it won 2--1, and extending its unbeaten season (36--0 through Sunday). Stephanie, who leads the squad in hitting percentage (.567), kills (212) and blocks (79), will compete at Auburn.
NEW ORLEANS > SOCCER
Mullins, a junior forward at top-ranked Maryland, scored both goals in a 2--1 win over Lehigh for the Terrapins' 13th straight win, extending his ACC-leading points total to 28 (10 goals, eight assists). A week earlier he had an assist in a 1--0 overtime defeat of No. 2--ranked North Carolina, the defending national champion, with a left-footed cross that was redirected by teammate Schillo Tshuma for the game-winner. A team captain, Mullins was the conference freshman of the year in 2010.
