In three straight days, the junior forward had three double-doubles and more to lead the No. 13 Knights (11-1) to three wins last week. On Tuesday, Horton totaled 28 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a 69-37 win over Reginald Lewis. The following day, in a 69-50 win over Forest Park, he finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds and five steals.

Girl Athlete of the Week: Laynie Sheahy, North Harford, basketball

The senior guard proved poised and steady, and included a defining moment in leading the Hawks (8-6) to two tightly-contested Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference wins last week. In a 49-46 win over Havre de Grace on Jan. 24, Sheahy hit a game-winning 3 pointer in the closing seconds to cap an 18-point, three-rebound, three-steal performance.
