Langville dribbles off to the Mount


November 18, 1992|By PAT O'MALLEY

It's smorgasbrowse day, with a bunch of "Q's" without "A's" plus some fun facts.

If I forgot anything, please give me a call on the 24-hour Sportsline, (410) 647-2499.

* How about congratulations to Archbishop Spalding's Amy Langville for signing a national letter of intent and accepting a full basketball scholarship to NCAA Division I Mount St. Mary's?

"Amy had agreed verbally a couple weeks ago, but made it official Sunday night," said Spalding coach Paul Leimkuhler.

* Do you realize that the state Class 4A football playoffs started with four Prince George's County teams and now the final four has only one, unbeaten Crossland (11-0), but that there are two Anne Arundel teams left, Annapolis (10-1) and North County (10-1)?

* Did you know that individual records were set by North County's Frank Brown, Eric Howard and Mike Quarles in the Knights' 34-7 playoff romp over Perry Hall (9-2) on Saturday?

Brown scored two touchdowns, giving him a county-record 24 in 11 games; he also has a school record 1,604 yards rushing in 11 games. The county season rushing record (1,835) was set by Severna Park's Gary Thall in 1964 in 10 games.

Howard, who keeps adding to his county records in touchdown passes (28) and passing yardage (2,229), has a shot at the state records set this year by Pallotti's Jason Boseck.

Boseck threw for 2,460 yards and 28 touchdowns in 10 games.

Quarles grabbed five passes Saturday and keeps adding to his county and Baltimore metro area record number of pass receptions, now 62.

* Have some of you North County fans wondered the identity of the stocky, curly-haired man who wanders up and down the Knights' sideline?

He's former Gambrills-Odenton Rec Council youth football coach Frenchy DeVille, who is as proud as can be of his protege, Chuck Markiewicz, the North County coach. Markiewicz played youth football for DeVille more than two decades ago.

"And Jeff [Herrick, Broadneck coach] played on the same team, so it's tough when North County plays Broadneck," said DeVille at Dundalk Community College on Saturday. "When they play against each other, I have to spend a half on each sideline. I'm very proud of both of them."

* Did you hear about the spectacular season had by Javon Norris, who is from Linthicum, on the Mount St. Joseph JV football team?

Gaels JV coach Bob Abend of Brooklyn Park said Norris had 28 touchdowns and 174 total points (three two-point conversions) and 1,639 yards on only 184 attempts for an average of 8.9 yards per carry.

* Have you heard that the Blue Sox, loaded with former Northeast and Brooklyn Park players, won the local National Adult Association Baseball League this fall with a record of 12-2?

Right-hander Tim Butz (Brooklyn Park) was the Sox MVP with a 7-0 record and 0.37 ERA (two earned runs) and had 69 strikeouts and only 16 walks while giving up only 20 hits.

Jason Herold (Northeast) was 4-1 with an ERA of 2.01 and struck out 41 in 31 1/3 innings for the Blue Sox. Tony Pente batted a team-high .400, had an on-base percentage of .569 and stole 11 bases.

* Is there a better defender in volleyball than Severna Park's 5-foot-10 senior Kate Marks?

* Did you fight fans know that Jeff Novotny of Crofton is having another amateur boxing show at 8 tonight at Michael's Eighth Avenue? Tickets are $10 ringside and $5 general admission.

* How about coach Jim Barry's Navy ice hockey club team rolling over annual nemesis, West Chester (Pa.), 9-2, last weekend in front of 1,100 fans at the Naval Academy's Dahlgren Hall? Steve Roberto and Mike Murnane each had two goals to pace seven Mids who scored.
