Adam Goloboski

Hereford, football

As the No. 2 Bulls' No. 1 tackler and an All-Metro pick last fall, Goloboski entered this season having already established himself as a defensive stalwart. Last weekend, in a 47-21 win over C. Milton Wright, the senior linebacker also was dominant at fullback.

Goloboski might have proved himself the most potent weapon in an offense that returns nine starters, rushing for 287 yards and four touchdowns -- three in the first half -- on 18 carries. His second score, a 56-yarder, overcame a 7-6 first-period deficit.

Goloboski broke two tackles near the end of his game-ending 96-yard touchdown. On defense, Goloboski made 16 tackles, including four for lost yardage.

With a 3.5 grade-point average and also a lacrosse player, Goloboski is receiving interest from William and Mary, Maryland and Richmond for football.


Emily Mason

Severn, field hockey

The junior forward scored a goal and had the second assist on another as the then-unranked Admirals pulled off the biggest upset of the young field hockey season, knocking off then-No. 2 Severna Park, 2-0, Friday afternoon.

Mason gave the Admirals an early lead with her first-half goal. Then, in the second half, she set off a chain of passes to Schuyler Sutton and Lindsay Brown for the goal that sealed the win in a fierce clash of neighborhood rivals.

A speedy left wing who scored the Admirals' only goal in last season's 2-1 loss to the Falcons, Mason also had four goals and an assist in a season-opening 12-0 win over Lutheran.

Mason, who also plays lacrosse, contributed nine goals and two assists last field hockey season, finishing as the team's third-leading scorer.
