Bryn Mawr, St. Mary's strike a match for Fuel Fund Girls game fills in for Metro Classic

February 10, 1993|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Staff Writer

The champions of the Association of Independent Schools A Division and the girls Catholic League will meet at Gilman in a Feb. 27 basketball game to benefit the Fuel Fund of Central Maryland.

The inaugural Baltimore Girls Independent Basketball championship for the Fuel Fund will pit Bryn Mawr of the AIS against the Catholic League's St. Mary's. Until this year, the girls Catholic League champion met the City-Wide champion in the Metro Classic.

The Fuel Fund, which helps needy area families pay heating bills, had lost a large source of revenue with the cancellation of this season's Metro Classic. The Charm City/Big Apple Challenge in December, however, donated its proceeds to the organization.

"I just thought we needed to do something to keep the Fuel Fund alive," said IND athletic director Linda King, who initiated this game. "If we can't get [the Metro Classic] back together, we would like to continue this."

Milton scores big

Stacey Milton last week became the first girl in C. Milton Wright history to score 1,000 career points.

A 6-foot senior center, she reached the milestone with the last of her 17 points in a 63-36 win over Bel Air on Thursday. In the first half, Milton managed just four points against Bel Air's box-and-one defense, but she finally hit 1,000 on a free throw with 1:14 left in the game.

Milton, who leads the Harford County League in scoring average (17.7) and rebounding average (13.8), was presented with the game ball and flowers from her teammates.

Mustangs coach Gloria Liedlich said Milton felt pressure, especially because the Mustangs are on the road for their next three games.

"She really wanted to get it at home," said Liedlich. "She had to work very hard for her 17 points, and you could see she was nervous. When she finally got it, I think it was probably the greatest moment in C. Milton Wright history."

A cheerful victory

Perry Hall's cheerleading squad, coached by Charlene Hanzevak, beat 18 others to become a repeat champion in Saturday's fifth annual Baltimore County championship at Dundalk Community College.

Squad members are seniors Laura Glotzbach and Ellen TC Gemelaris; juniors Lauren de Wald and Jennifer Davis; sophomores Rachel Waldron, Stella Stakias, Melissa Webb, Jill Scott, Lisa Salvetti, Stephanie Kuzma, Angela Carlilse and Tina Scaccio; and freshmen Kristy Williams, Stephanie Harrod and Amanda Long.

More than 400 girls competed.

For love of Brother Andrew

The third annual Brother Andrew Cup ice hockey game between Calvert Hall and Loyola will be Tuesday, at 3:30 p.m. at Mount Pleasant Ice Rink on Hillen Road.

The game honors Calvert Hall's spiritual leader of 46 years, Brother Andrew Dinoto, 83, and is expected to sell out for the third straight year.

"He always manages to find time to support the boys in their various school activities," said Brenda Windsor, whose son Jason is Calvert Hall captain. "The boys really hope to win the game for him."

Setlen makes grade

Baltimore County coaches voted unanimously to allow Pikesville's defending state champion Corey Setlen to participate in the Feb. 17-20 county wrestling tournament although academic ineligibility had prevented him from wrestling a single match this season.

Setlen, who transferred from Owings Mills on Dec. 10, received a favorable 19-2 vote at Sunday's seeding meeting, though he technically was still ineligible until Monday.

Pikesville coach Curt Boushell said Setlen satisfied eligibility requirements when report cards were issued Friday, but a state rule stated Setlen had to wait three days after receiving his grades before being declared eligible.

"No grades were changed, no favors were granted and no one's taking it easy on him. He's just going to counseling and paying his dues and becoming a man," said Boushell of Setlen, who transferred from Pikesville to Owings Mills after placing third in the state as a freshman.

"Not being able to wrestle hit me where it counted," said Setlen, 17, who will wrestle at 130 for the counties before dropping to 125 for the regions and states. "I've realized my mistakes this year, but I'm seriously thinking about college. Last year, I didn't care about that stuff."

For the following week's 16-team regional tournament, which includes six teams from Harford County, state rules allow exceptions concerning returning champions whose inactivity was affected by injury or hardship.

At least 50 percent of the regional coaches must favor a discussion of Setlen's circumstances, followed by a positive vote of at least two-thirds favoring his participation.

Another award for Suber

City football player Terrence Suber, The Baltimore Sun's 1992 Offensive Player of the Year, has received yet another honor: The Thom McAn 1992-93 Scholar Athlete of the Year.

Suber, who will be awarded a football trophy, is eligible to compete for national honors, as well. The winner will receive a commemorative plaque, along with a $100 savings bond. City College will be given a $1,000 scholarship in Suber's name.

Quick hits
