Whiteley's crusade brings title

May 23, 1991|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,Evening Sun Staff

Calvert Hall's Tony Nugent and St. Paul's coach Mitch Whiteley head The Evening Sun 1991 All-Metro lacrosse team.

Nugent is the Player of the Year, capping four stellar seasons for the Cardinals. The senior midfielder had 32 goals and 18 assists this spring. He is bound for the University of Virginia in the fall.

"Tony is the reason we finished 10-5," said Calvert Hall coach Mike Thomas. "I would hate to think how we would have done, if Tony hadn't controlled the midfield for us."

Last week, Nugent was honored with the C. Markland Kelly Award as the Maryland Scholastic Association's top player.

Whiteley, in his third varsity season, is the Coach of the Year. He guided the Crusaders to their first MSA A Conference championship since 1983. He had coached the junior varsity squad for six years before taking over the varsity, and had records of 9-5 and 8-7 before this spring's 12-4 effort.

Whiteley, a graduate of Dartmouth, began coaching Baltimore County recreation league teams in 1974 before arriving at St. Paul's. His son, Tim, is the only underclassman selected to the first team.

The All-Metro team was selected by The Evening Sun with cooperation from area coaches.
