Girls Athlete of the Week: Lakin Hatcher, McDonogh, track and field

The sophomore sprinter added to an already impressive running resume with four gold medals in leading the No. 1 Eagles to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland track and field championship. She won the 100 and 200 meters and ran legs of the winning 800- and 1,600-meter relays. Undefeated in the 100 and 200, she has won seven IAAM titles in two years. An All-Metro first-team selection during the indoor track season, she helped the Eagles take that team title, too, by winning the 55 and 300 meters and anchoring the gold-medal 800 relay. A 4.0 student, she runs during the summer for Team Accelerate Maryland and last summer was a USA Track & Field intermediate 400-meter relay finalist. In 2009, she was an Amateur Athletic Union All-American in the 1,600 relay.
