KELLY KRUSOE


WALSH JESUIT  GIRLS' GOLF


Krusoe has been an integral member of the ultra-successful Warriors' golf team the last few years. Last season, she helped Walsh Jesuit capture the state championship. This year, the Warriors fell short of the title, settling for second place behind Mason, but Krusoe was brilliant on the links. She held a season average of 37.57 for nine holes and 77.9 for 18. She was sixth at state and earned All-Ohio honors. Being named The Plain Dealer Girls' Golfer of the Year was the final highlight in her high school career.



ANDRE PAULK


KENT ROOSEVELT  BOYS' BASKETBALL


Last season, Paulk was "Mr. Everything" for the Rough Riders. The versatile 6-foot-2 guard led the team in scoring at 20.6 points a contest. He also ripped down 8.2 rebounds and handed out 5.3 assists while averaging less than two turnovers a game. In his final season with Kent Roosevelt, Paulk hopes to improve on last season's 17-5 record and district semifinals appearance with the help of 6-foot-9 forward Cameron Black. The Rough Riders entered the season as the No. 15 team in The Plain Dealer's preseason Top 25 poll.



CAMERON WRIGHT and DEREK JACKSON


BENEDICTINE  BOYS' BASKETBALL


As sophomores, the talented ESPN RISE All-Area selections led Benedictine to a 19- 6 record and a regional runner-up finish in Division II. Jackson, a 6-foot guard, averaged 17 points, six assists, five boards and three thefts a contest last year. He was a marksman from deep, canning 40 percent of his treys. Wright made his mark on the interior with his solid 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame. The Ohio State recruit dropped in 18.5 points to go with 7.5 rebounds, five assists and three steals a game.



MADDIE KETE


MAGNIFICAT  GIRLS' SWIMMING


Kete was a force in the water for the Blue Streaks in 2007-08. She paced Magnificat to a fourth-place finish at the Cleveland State districts, where she set a school record and finished first in the 50 free in 23.79 seconds. At the state meet, she took 10th overall in the 50 with a time of 24.32 and took 15th in the 100 free at 53.51 to lead Magnificat to a 20th-place finish. The senior has committed to swim at Miami University next year.
