March 23, 1993|By Rich Scherr | Rich Scherr,Contributing Writer

Six members of the Columbia Figure Skating Club of Maryland successfully competed last weekend in the Evelyn Boyer Skating Competition at the Old York Road Skating Club in Elkins Park, Pa.

Ten-year-old Anna Campos led the way, winning the figure and freestyle events in the First Test Division, with 13-year-old teammate Kim Rzemien taking fourth in both events.

In Intermediate competition, 13-year old Tracey Tyson finished second in figures and third in freestyle. Juveniles Christie Taylor and Lauren Clark, both 11, also fared well. Taylor took fifth in the freestyle and Clark placed third in figures and eighth in freestyle.

Fifteen-year-old Maureen Contreni also competed Sunday's Dance competition.

The event featured skaters from as far south as Tampa, Fla., and as far north as Massachusetts.

"It was a good chance for the kids to see what others are doing across the Eastern seaboard," said coach Paula Campos. "As a whole, it was a very good experience. I think they learned a lot."

The club is preparing for its performance of "Castle on a Cloud," scheduled for April 3-4 at Columbia Ice Rink. The show is a combination of "Wizard of Oz" and several memorable Broadway numbers. For tickets or information, call Paula Campos at (301) 498-5953.


* Under-14 boys -- The Western Howard County Heat travel team posted a 6-1 victory over WHC-80 Friday night at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore.

With the score tied 1-1 at halftime, the Heat took control of the game. George Klisas started the scoring flurry with a breakaway across the middle and Nick Finkelsen then scored three goals to put the game out of reach.

Mike Wheat and Andy Walter added one goal apiece.

* Under-13 -- Sweeping four games and allowing only one goal, the Columbia Contact captured first place in the Maryland Soccer Shore Classic's under-13 bracket last weekend.

In the key game in the round-robin competition, Austin Smith's goal from deep in the corner with 10 seconds to play allowed the Contact to get past the Beach Pride, of Virginia Beach, 2-1. Chris Ford had tied the game earlier in the second half. In last year's Shore Classic, the Pride had beaten the Contact in the finals.

The Contact didn't allow a goal in its other three wins. Providing near-perfect defense were goalkeepers Chris Moe and Pat Nugent and fullbacks Jarod Blaney, Daniel Buchner, Steve Feddor, Louis Grimmel and Josh Mazalewski.

Mike Charamella scored both goals (one assisted by Ford) in a 2-0 opening win over the Penns Forest Spirit of Greensburgh, Pa.

Four different players -- Robbie Abramson, Tim Fritz, Smith and Ford -- scored in a 4-0 win over the Cecil Thrashers of Elkton. Nugent and Ryan Cox had assists.

A 2-0 win over the Bowie Blaze capped the weekend, with Jeff Walsh and Smith scoring on assists from Sam Salganik and Fritz. Kasty Jamaris played a strong game at midfield.
