Anthony Stinson

School: Sewickley Academy

Class: Senior

Sport: Soccer

Claim to fame: Stinson scored 17 goals and dished out 10 assists this year, helping Sewickley Academy advance to play Beaver County Christian in the WPIAL finals Saturday. In his biggest offensive outburst of the season, Stinson scored four goals for the Panthers in their 7-2 nonsection win over Hopewell on Oct. 15.

Can Sewickley Academy make a deep run in the state playoffs again this year?

Yes, I think we can. We've had a few close games recently, so I think we have to play more convincing soccer. Also, if we want to win the WPIAL and get back to the state finals, we'll all have to play better defense.

Have you decided where you want to attend college?

I've been looking at Southern Methodist University and Bucknell. As far as for soccer, I've talked to Washington & Jefferson.

Do you have a major in mind?

Engineering or business. Right now, I'm in a few economics classes that I really like. My dad is an engineer, and I think I would enjoy that career.

What's the best Halloween costume you've ever had?

I'd have to say when I was a lion in the seventh grade or two years ago when I was J. Gatsby.

Ashley Grimm

School: Bishop Canevin

Class: Senior

Sport: Volleyball

Claim to fame: Grimm had six kills and seven aces in the top-seeded Crusaders' 3-0 win over Springdale in the first round of the WPIAL Class A playoffs Thursday. Grimm is a four-time all-section selection and last year was selected to the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association all-state team. Grimm is Bishop Canevin's all-time leader in kills (587) and digs (936).

Have you picked a college yet?

Not yet. I'm looking at Rogers Williams University in Rhode Island, St. Vincent and Frostburg. I'm looking for somewhere that will have my major but isn't too far from home. I want to study marine biology.

When you look back at your career, how fulfilling is it to know you'll graduate as one of Bishop Canevin's top volleyball players?

It's an amazing honor. It makes me just want to keep working harder so I can continue what I've done the last four years in college.
