February 12, 1993|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Contributing Writer

The Milford Mill boys and Towson girls made sure that Howard County did not completely dominate the Class 2A-1A Region II indoor track and field meet yesterday.

Milford Mill and Towson each took second place in yesterday's regional meet at the Fifth Regiment Armory, as Glenelg won the girls' title and Oakland Mills the boys'.

Oakland Mills rolled to the boys' victory with 98 points to Milford Mill's 67. Glenelg coasted to the girls' title with 103 points to

Towson's 71.

Milford Mill made the most of the least at the meet, getting the majority of its points from a few places.

Mike Mamo returned to individual racing for the first time during the winter season. Mamo, previously sidelined by shin splints, took second in the 1,600 (4:42.99) and 3,200 meters (10:01.52).

"He's a definite leader," Milford Mill coach Stanley Lambros said. "It sparked them quite a bit. He looks good."

Andre Eure also helped, taking the high jump by clearing 6 feet 6. In addition, he took second in the 55-meter hurdles (7.8) and ran on the third-place 800-meter relay team (1:39.27).

Joe Henderson, another member of that relay team, pitched in with a second-place finish in the high jump (6-4). Henderson added a third-place finish in the 55-meter hurdles (7.9).

Damon Johnson, also part of the 800-meter relay team, added a second-place finish in the 300 meters (36.84). Brian Beadle was the final member of the relay team.

Towson's girls team benefited from help from a number of sources, but Julie Caler and Nicole Walker led the way.

Caler took second in the 3,200 meters (12:12.59), third in the 1,600 meters (5:39.16) and fourth in the 800 meters (2:35.08).

Walker also kept busy, scoring in three individual events and one relay.

Walker won the shot put with a toss of 33 feet. She finished second in the 55 meters, clocking 7.5 seconds.

In addition, Walker finished third in the 300 meters (44.6) and was part of the fifth-place 800-meter relay team (2:04.54).

Wendy Bathurst also did several things well. She won the 500 meters in 1:23.78 and finished fifth in the 55 meters (8.1).

She also ran on the 1,600-meter relay team that took third in 4:36.83. Chrystal Johnson, Meghan Stringer and Laura Schott made up the rest of that team.

Schott, Stringer, Caroline Rolker and Katie Gonnerman combined to run on the 3,200-meter relay team that finished second with a time of 10:46.4.

"I knew we were going to do well," Towson coach Sheila Nash said. "We've done well in the last few meets, they've been consistent."

Lonnie Humphrey of Owings Mills also had a good night. The Golden Eagles speedster won the 300 meters (36.25) and 500 meters (1:11.29) to score all 20 points for his team.
