Howard's Foster makes most of sad situation

News and notes

May 02, 1991|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Evening Sun Staff

Howard goalie Milton Lee is hospitalized and recuperating from surgery in the aftermath of a serious automobile accident last weekend. Lions lacrosse coach Dan Ross expected backup keeper David Roseman to step in and take over the goaltending duties, but Roseman had to attend a funeral during Monday's showdown with Glenelg.

"We met at 7 o'clock Monday morning and I asked who wanted to play goalie," said Ross. "A junior midfielder, Sean Foster, volunteered, so we worked with him during his lunch period and he played very well."

The Lions defeated Glenelg, 15-6, to run their record to 11-0, only to lose to Liberty last night, 11-8.

Roseman was available last night, but Foster was in goal, making 10 saves.

"We're all thinking about Milton," said Ross, who said the starting job is Foster's to lose. Lee suffered a broken pelvis, a broken femur and a broken jaw, and he fought off a life-threatening post-operative fever. "We wish him a speedy recovery," Ross said. "That's more important to us right now."

* Dulaney's Amanda White set a Baltimore County record in the 3,200-meter run. She was clocked in 11 minutes, .5 seconds. In the same meet, within a span of approximately one hour and 20 minutes, White also anchored the 3,200-meter relay with a 2:26.6 split, ran the 1,600-meter run in 5:09.8 and the 800-meter run in 2:25.5.

* With 11 hits in 16 at-bats last week, Towson's Brett Kintz raised his season average to .533, thus boosting his four-year career batting mark to .503. He has never batted below .460, the standard he set in his freshman season, said Generals coach Dave Wright.

* The site for the Rodney Beasley fund-raiser basketball tournament, sponsored by the Baltimore Metro Coaches Association, has been changed. The four-game affair which features local all-star teams against Philadelphia teams will be played Saturday at Dunbar High School, tapping off at 1.30 p.m. The original site was Southern.

Beasley, a Walbrook player, died in a car accident after a recent tournament.
