Wrestlers only ones with weekend win Western Maryland notebook

February 10, 1993|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Staff Writer

Whether it was on the court, in the pool or on the mat, it wasn't the best of weekends for Western Maryland College.

Only the wrestling team came away with a weekend victory, but it also lost two matches in a quad match at Ursinus College on Saturday.

The men's basketball team dropped an 87-61 decision at Moravian; the women's basketball team had a tough time stopping Sylke Knuppel and Johns Hopkins; and the swimming team was swept by Swarthmore.

Men's basketball

Junior forward Rolando Welch had his 14th double-double of the season Saturday, with 19 points and 12 rebounds, but it wasn't enough to stop Moravian, which hit 10 three-pointers.

But the Green Terrors got some good news: the return of sophomore small forward Tony Jenkins, who had been out of action since Dec. 5 with a knee problem.

Entering last night's game against St. Mary's, the Green Terrors (4-15) had lost five in a row.

Women's basketball

The women are in a busy stretch that started last night against Franklin & Marshall.

They'll be at Goucher tomorrow before coming home to play Gettysburg on Saturday and Juniata on Monday.

The Green Terrors (7-11, 2-5 in the Middle Atlantic Conference-Southwest Section) beat Gettysburg, 79-73, earlier in the season behind a career-high 23 points from sophomore Krista Shaffer.

Annette Hoffman, the MAC's leading scorer, comes to town Monday, when the Green Terrors face Juniata in a game `D postponed last month because of bad weather.

Wrestling

Freshman Nick Stafford had a stellar day Saturday, coming away with three pins at 126 pounds.

The Green Terrors (8-6) defeated Gallaudet, 39-9, and lost to host Ur

sinus, 24-21, and Lebanon Valley, 29-12.

Stafford put Gallaudet's Joe Occtia on his back in 18 seconds, pinned Lebanon Valley's Joe Ruhl in 54 seconds, then took a second-period fall over Ursinus' Matt Sutin.

The squad will be in action Saturday in a tri-match against Susquehanna and host Delaware Valley.

Swimming

The women's swimming team (6-5) will need a win at home Saturday against Dickinson or next Wednesday at Washington College to ensure its first winning season since 1982-83, when it went 7-5.

Freshman Karen Alexander continued her fine season Saturday with wins in the 50-yard freestyle and 200 butterfly, but the Swarthmore women won, 56-34. Sophomore Buffy Burke won the 200 individual medley.

The Western Maryland men (4-7) fell to Swarthmore, 55-39. Mike Jekogian won the 200 freestyle, and Paul Matkovic won the 200 breaststroke. Both teamed with Matt Byrne and Jeff Maslin to win the 400 medley relay.
