April 14, 1993|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Staff Writer

For the second consecutive weekend, Liberty grad Julie Cox has set a Western Maryland record in the 100-meter hurdles.

After breaking the school record two Saturdays ago at the Falcon Invitational at Messiah College with a time of 15.95 seconds, the freshman ran a 15.29 Saturday in finishing third at the Shippensburg (Pa.) University Invitational.

With the time, she became a provisional qualifier for the NCAA Division III championships.

Five men placed in Saturday's meet at Shippensburg, but no overall team score was kept. Derek Johnston took third in the 3,000 steeplechase in 9 minutes, 47.96 seconds. Kent Lightbourn placed third in the 400, in 50.6.

The track and field team will compete Saturday at the Mount St. Mary's College Invitational.

The Green Terrors improved to 5-2 Monday by winning their fourth straight, 16-11 over West Chester.

For a while, it appeared the Green Terrors had a romp in mind, similar to Saturday's 20-1 thrashing of Fairleigh Dickinson University-Madison. The Green Terrors took a 9-1 second-quarter lead against West Chester before the visiting Golden Rams scored five of the next six goals to get within 10-6 in the third quarter. That's as close as they would get, however, as Peter Kangas and Andrew Price scored three goals each to lead

Western Maryland.

The Green Terrors travel to Goucher today and play host to Franklin & Marshall Saturday.

Tennis

Liberty grad Blake Beares teamed with fellow freshman Seth Noone to defeat Dickinson's Derrick Lui and Nathaniel Tetl at third doubles, 2-6, 6-2, 6-0, but that was the only win Western Maryland could muster Saturday in an 8-1 loss.

This Saturday, the men will travel to Elizabethtown and the women will play host to Dickinson.

Baseball and softball

The baseball and softball teams had home doubleheaders washed out Saturday.

Both play key Middle Atlantic Conference-Southwest Section doubleheaders this weekend. The softball team will play host to Dickinson Friday, and the baseball team travels to Lebanon Valley Saturday.
