FACES IN THE CROWD

BO FARROW

• Track and Field

• Broken Arrow, Okla.

Farrow, a senior at Pittsburg (Kans.) State, put the shot 62' 2½" to win the Division II indoor title in Pittsburg. That heave helped the Gorillas take the team championship. Farrow, who also played football, has been named All-America five times and All-MIAA Conference nine times.

NOELLE LAMBERT

• Lacrosse

• Londonderry, N.H.

Lambert, a sophomore attack at UMass Lowell, scored a goal in a 16--1 win over Hartford. It was her first game after the amputation of her left leg following a 2016 moped accident. As a freshman Lambert, who now uses a prosthesis, tied for the team lead with 15 goals.

IAN FINNERTY

Finnerty, a junior at Indiana, set the U.S. record in the 100-yard breaststroke (49.69) en route to winning the NCAA title. He also took the 200 breast in 1:50.17, breaking the Big Ten mark. Finnerty is the first male in Hoosiers history to win both events at the national championship.

LANDRY FELTS

• Brock, Texas

Landry, a junior centerfielder at Brock High, hit two grand slams in the first inning of a 15--0 victory over Cisco. She is only the 10th high school player to hit a pair in the same inning. An all-district performer last season, Landry is batting .360 with 31 RBIs through 26 games.
