LEXI SMITH

FLORENCE, N.J. > FIELD HOCKEY

Lexi, a senior center forward at Florence High, scored twice in a 6--1 win over Palmyra High to tie the national career scoring record (174 goals) just two days after breaking the New Jersey state record with two goals in a 4--3 come-from-behind win over Bordentown. Last year she broke the Flashes' single-season scoring mark, a record previously held by her aunt, Dianne Carey-Stranko, the team's assistant coach, and before that by her mother, Gina Carey-Smith, the head coach.

SEAN MCGORTY

CHANTILLY, VA. > CROSS-COUNTRY

Sean, a senior at Chantilly High, won the Great American Cross-Country Festival 5K in Cary, N.C., surging ahead in the final 10 meters to win by .3 seconds in 14:43.6, a personal best and the fastest U.S. high school time so far this season. His win, over 220 runners on a rain-soaked course, set course and meet records and helped the Chargers to a fourth-place finish. Sean, the 3A state champion at 3,200 meters, also won the Monroe Parker and Oatlands invitationals this year.

KEALIA OHAI

DRAPER, UTAH > SOCCER

Ohai, a junior forward at North Carolina, opened the scoring in a 6--1 win over Miami (Fla.) by taking a defensive clearance and sprinting 65 yards, past four defenders, to launch a shot from the top of the box into the upper-right corner of the net. Six Tar Heels scored in the match, producing the team's most goals in 28 games. Last month Ohai scored in the U.S.'s U-20 World Cup semifinal win over Nigeria (2--0) and kicked the team's lone goal to defeat Germany in the final.
