October 23, 1990|By SAM DAVIS

And the streaks go on at Severna Park.

Three Severna Park girls teams added to impressive win streaks last week.

The Falcons' field hockey team beat Queen Anne's, 4-0, Friday on goals by Holly Roessler, Jill Snider, Petra Smeehuyzen and Tricia Gately to finish unbeaten (12-0) for the second time in three years.

On Oct. 15, Katie Woodcock's goal nine minutes before halftime was the only score Severna Park would need in a 3-0 defeat of Broadneck that clinched the Falcons' 13th straight Anne Arundel County championship for coach Lil Shelton.

The victory also avenged one of only two losses to a county foe in Severna Park's field hockey history. Broadneck beat the Falcons, 1-0, in overtime last year.

Severna Park's volleyball team (10-0) won its 86th straight regular-season game since 1984 by winning, 3-0, Friday against previously unbeaten Broadneck with games of 15-11, 16-14, 15-11.

Coach Tim Dunbar's defending state runners-up start freshman Jen Conner; sophomores Catherine Kirk, Kate Marks, Jaime Pirotte; junior Cassandra Melton; and senior Kim Aller.

The Falcons' girls soccer team beat Glen Burnie, 4-0, on goals by Stephanie Roberts, Nicki Cecere, Amy Carnaggio and Erin Wylde to remain unbeaten in 41 consecutive games -- with 35 straight victories -- since dropping the 1987 Region IV final in overtime. Coach Joyce Stefancik's team are two-time defending state champions.

The girls cross country team will be going for its seventh straight county title Friday in the county championship meets at Annapolis.

"This is probably the top girls sports program in the state," said Andy Borland, athletic director at Severna Park, where girls teams have won 21 of the school's 28 state titles. "In our area, people want to excel. The support of the parents is great. There is a tremendous feeder system, and the girls want to win."
