Byron Turner, the Aberdeen lineman who was selected to The Sun's All-Metro football team the past two years, has announced that he will attend Marshall University in Huntington, W.Va.
Turner, 6 feet 1, 285 pounds, was considered one of the country's top recruits in preseason reports by Super Prep and Street and Smith's. However, when Turner had trouble scoring the minimum 700 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, many schools that were recruiting him backed off.
A score of at least 700 is required by the National CollegiatAthletic Association for freshman eligibility.
By the time Turner got the required minimum on the SAT, schools such as Maryland, Penn State and Notre Dame, that had shown much interest, had given out all their scholarships.
"I'm a little bit [disappointed]," said Turner. "The SAT really knocked me back, but I'm happy with what I got. It's a pretty nice school, not far away, and it has good academics."
North County will rename its gym Hart Hall in ceremonies during tomorrow night's basketball doubleheader to benefit the Dick Hart Scholarship Fund.
Keith Mills, WMAR-TV sportscaster and Brooklyn Park graduate, will conduct the dedication ceremonies after alumni from Brooklyn Park and Andover play in the first game (6 p.m.). The second game will feature the WMAR All-Stars against a team from the late Andover coach's parish, St. John's Lutheran Church of Linthicum.
Hart died Feb. 2 after a long battle with brain cancer. He was the only basketball coach in Andover's 29-year history.
Records, streaks, milestones: Victor Carter-Bey, a junior at Gilman, came within a half-inch of tying the school shot-put record with a throw of 53 feet, 3 inches at Saturday's Gilman Relays. However, the combined throws of Carter-Bey, Michael Schermahorn and Biff Byun of 147-7 1/2 did set a record for the Gilman Relays. . . . Top-ranked Northeast's softball win streak reached 60 games with shutouts of Archbishop Spalding, 1-0, and South River, 13-0, last week. The Eagles' streak, the fifth-longest in history, is within two games of tying No. 4 Corryton Gibbs (Tenn.) at 62. . . . Hillary Kuker scored her sixth goal with 1 minute, 5 seconds left, as Severna Park's top-ranked girls lacrosse team edged Annapolis, 13-12, Friday, for its 53rd straight victory.
Overtime: Howard lacrosse defender Joe Wilson will sign a letter of intent with Virginia tomorrow.
