andrewm@herald-mail.com If there were such a game as Fantasy Tri-State Track & Field and we were drafting athletes for all-time high school teams, I might want Vikas Gowda for my first-round pick. Gowda, a 2001 Frederick High graduate, won seven Maryland state titles for the Cadets and is the Tri-State's all-time prep leader in the discus and shot put. He'd be worth big fantasy points. If there were such a game as Fantasy Indian Track & Field, Gowda might go No. 1 overall.
