April 15, 1993|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Staff Writer

Before his team took the field for a doubleheader with Camden (N.J.) on Monday, Anne Arundel Community College softball coach Jim Hendricks discovered that the Pioneers were second in the nation in batting among junior colleges with a .450 average.

Then the Pioneers went out and collected just one hit -- a single by pitcher Stacy Reynolds in the fourth inning -- and lost to Camden in the opener, 5-1. But they returned to form in the second game, winning easily, 6-0.

Reynolds (9-2) went the distance in both games, giving up 11 hits in the opener and seven in the nightcap. She struck out seven in the second game.

"She got stronger as the day went on," Hendricks said. "She's not afraid to challenge people."

Reynolds, who led Northeast to the region final last spring, has a 1.27 ERA, 35 strikeouts and three shutouts. She also ranks ninth in the nation in fielding percentage, and catcher Holly Hladycz (Broadneck) is 10th.

Center fielder Kristen Meade (South River) scored two runs and had two steals, two walks and two RBI in the second game. She has a .469 average, and entered the week ranked ninth in the nation in batting.

First baseman Amy Fichter was 2-for-3 with one run scored and one RBI. She is batting .531 with 16 runs, 15 steals and 11 RBI.

Reynolds knocked in two runs, and has raised her average to .452.

On Tuesday, the Pioneers (9-2 overall, 7-1 in Region XX) defeated host Cecil, 7-4. Fichter went 3-for-3 with three steals and an RBI, and Meade went 2-for-3 with a steal and two RBI.

Dora Taylor (Glen Burnie) had two hits, including a two-run double in the fifth inning, and scored a run. She is batting .542 and leads the team with 19 RBI.

Women's lacrosse

After having as few as nine players available last week, Anne Arundel's women's lacrosse team was at full strength against Harford on Monday. But the visiting, 12-member Pioneers lost, ,, 9-7, in what coach Jim Shuck called "hopefully our worst game of the season."

"We'll just let this one go as a bad game," he said. "You have good games and bad games. This one was bad. The girls were falling all over each other. There were over 20 unforced turnovers."

South River graduate Kristy Moltz scored four goals for Anne Arundel, which was 2-2 going into yesterday's game against Villa Julie.

Tracy Tobin (St. Mary's) had two goals and one assist against Harford, Jennie Young (Southern) scored once, and Heather Riley (South River) had one assist.

Wendy Baxter (Broadneck) made 16 saves.


Anne Arundel's baseball team collected seven hits but lost to Dundalk, 3-1, Tuesday.

Old Mill graduate Eric Scott (3-for-5) and Northeast's Mike O'Brien (2-for-4) accounted for five of the hits. Scott, the Pioneers' third baseman, knocked in the only run when he singled in the fifth inning with K. C. Murphy (Northeast) on second.

Starting pitcher John Degen (Broadneck) went eight innings, giving up three runs and seven hits, walking two and striking out eight.


Anne Arundel's golf team placed third last week in a match at Eisenhower Golf Course in Crownsville, shooting a 349 to trail Charles (323) and Frederick (328).

The Pioneers' best score came from South River graduate Kevin Richardson, who shot an 85.
