Katy High coach Shanna Marhofer talks about Savannah May with praise that most would elicit only upon the most respected and admired individuals.

"Driven." "Outworks everybody." "There's always a purpose." "When she talks, people listen." "She is not going to expect anyone else to do anything that she wouldn't do herself."

"Everything she does," Marhofer said, "she takes seriously, because it's important to her."

May is Marhofer's senior guard, a versatile, dynamic basketball talent who has every intangible that coaches desire.

"As a freshman, I knew she took everything she did seriously, and I knew she was driven and would push herself," Marhofer said. "I could see her doing great things for our program. She's a very serious young lady. Those types of traits aren't normal in freshmen."

May is a three-year varsity player and two-year captain; the latter particularly significant since it's voted upon by players, not coaches. At 5-foot-6, May is averaging 12.9 points, seven rebounds, 4.4 steals and 3.5 assists per game for the 14-3 Tigers, strong frontrunners for the District 19-6A championship this season.

HOUSTON – Matthew Boling is the fastest man in the country.

You read that right.

Not just in Houston or Texas but the United States of America, Boling holds the fastest marks in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash.

"It feels really good, I've been working really hard all year and am really happy with my times," Boling said. "But I am still hungry and know I can do better."

At the TSU Relays this past weekend, the Strake Jesuit senior posted times of 10.22 in the 100-meter dash and 20.58 in the 200-meter dash, which are both personal records.

Boling's 100-meter dash time is 0.24 seconds and his 200-meter dash mark is 0.41 seconds faster than Miami Northland High School's Tyrese Cooper times in each race.

"My goals each meet are to just progress and focus on one thing such as my block starts or drive phase so I can get ready for state," Boling said.
