Big innings don't always spell big wins


April 25, 1991|By Mike Farabaugh

Imagine scoring 10 runs or more in one inning and losing.

Queen Anne's did that recently, getting 10 in the sixth inning against Chesapeake-AA, but it lost, 24-10, as the Cougars pounded out 20 hits, 10 for extra bases.

The Cougars had the tables turned Tuesday at Severna Park. Trailing 12-0, the Cougars scored 11 runs in the top of the seventh and lost.

Earlier, Severna Park had survived another big inning, yielding 10 runs in the second inning to Randallstown. The Falcons still won, 19-15.

* The unbeaten Loch Raven girls go after lacrosse win No. 200 tomorrow against Pikesville. The Raiders have gone 199-6-1 since 1973 when coach Joy Nuttall began the program. Nuttall coached from 1973 to 1985. Jennifer Langrehr took over for two seasons before Wendy Galinn picked up the reins in 1988.

The Raiders have won 17 division, 15 county and seven regional titles, plus last season's first state tournament championship.

* Hammond's Bob Maxey is the Maryland State Athletic Directors Association recipient of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association State Award of Merit for 1991. A graduate of the University of Rhode Island, Maxey has taught at Hammond since 1977 and coached baseball since 1987.

* Thanks to lacrosse old-timer Chooch Turner for helping get the facts straight. Severn last won the MSA A Conference lacrosse title in 1968. The only championship plaque discovered on the office walls at Severn was from the 1965 season, but, as Turner informed us, the 1968 season produced two great high school teams. He rated Severn and Towson as the best-ever teams from the "pre-plastic" stick era.

* Curley's Matt Ciarpella turned in a 4:31 clocking in the 1,600 meters in the rain last Saturday for the Ed P. Hurt track meet, then competed and finished second among 60 athletes in the Dundalk Triathlon on Sunday. That affair was abbreviated by the weather, the bike portion being eliminated.

Incidentally, Curley edged North County, 89-86, to win its second Hurt title in the meet's five-year history.

* Institute of Notre Dame softball coach Steve Kalb got his 100th career victory last week in only his eighth season. The Indians downed Catholic, 9-2.

* The North Hagerstown baseball team was placed in quarantine for two weeks because of one case of measles at the school. Off to a great 6-1 start, it had to sit out the imposed vacation and now must cram in its remaining games. North Hagerstown won the state Class 3A title in 1989 and was bumped in regional play last spring by Linganore.
