Severn School Begins Baseball

March 18, 1992

For the first time in its long history, Severn School, noted for high school lacrosse, is starting a baseball program.

"It is my pleasure to announce that Severn School is going to inaugurate baseball aspart of our spring sports program," said Admirals athletic director Fred Hewitt.

"We will start next Monday on the middle-school level (seventh- to ninth-graders), and we may not play any games this year, but we will make the commitment to play in 1993 on the (freshman-sophomore) level."

Hewitt said the Admirals plan to field a junior varsity baseball team in 1994 and by 1995 a varsity team in the Maryland Scholastic Association C Conference.

"The seventh-, eighth- and ninth-graders we are starting with will be 10th-, 11th- and 12th-graders by thattime (1995)," said Hewitt.

Severn will use Cypress Creek Park, which is near the Severna Park school, as its practice site.
