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.
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.
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.
