DARIEN DONALD


CAHOKIA  BOYS' TRACK


Donald has been a star on the track circuit since his freshman year, and he's still getting better. As a junior last year, he won the 400 at the Illinois Class 2A state meet, and his winning time of 47.52 was the fastest in the state for 2008. He's been an ESPN RISE All-Area first team selection the past two years, and after taking ninth place in the 200 last season, Donald is looking to win both to cap off his senior campaign.



ALI BAUER


ST. DOMINIC  GIRLS' SOCCER


Bauer was spectacular last year as a junior, dominating the midfield for St. Dominic and helping the Crusaders make it to the semifinals of the state tournament. She is always on the attack, using her speed to create scoring chances, and she finished the 2008 season with 17 goals and a team-high 10 assists. With Bauer manning the middle again this season, St. Dominic should remain among the top contenders for the state title.
