Men's lacrosse closes in on top 20 ranking Western Maryland notes

April 21, 1993|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Staff Writer

Don't look now but Western Maryland College's men's lacrosse team is on the doorstep of becoming a top 20 Division III team.

The United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's poll this week listed the Green Terrors among the "others receiving votes" after Saturday's 15-6 win over previously 20th-ranked Franklin & Marshall.

It was the sixth straight win for the Green Terrors under first-year coach Keith Reitenbach. They entered yesterday's game against Randolph Macon with a 7-2 record.

Saturday's win over F & M broke a nine-game losing streak against the Diplomats that began in 1983. Freshman Dean Coccia led the way with four goals and four assists. Ken Higgs (Westminster) and Andy Price added three goals apiece.

The Green Terrors will close out their regular season Saturday at Middle Atlantic Conference-East foe Swarthmore, which entered the week at 6-4 overall.


The golf team will compete in the MAC Championship Saturday and Sunday at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, Pa.

Seniors Jeff Dierks and 1991 MAC individual medalist Steve Comes will lead the way for the Green Terrors, who finished third as a team last year behind co-champions Susquehanna and Gettysburg.

Twenty MAC schools are scheduled to compete in the 54-hole event.

The Green Terrors (5-2, 2-1 in the MAC-West) won their third straight game Saturday with a 14-8 decision over visiting Notre Dame.

It was a day for the freshmen as Denise Sarver had four goals and Danielle Miller (North Carroll) had a career-best three goals and one assist. Amy Eggers (North Carroll) chipped in two goals and an assist.

The Green Terrors, looking to secure second place in the West Division and gain a playoff berth, will play host to division rival Dickinson (3-5, 2-2) today at 4 p.m.

Freshman Julie Cox (Liberty) continued her assault on the school record books with two more on Saturday at the Mount St. Mary's College Open.

-! Cox broke school marks in the

shot put with a toss of 34-7 and the 100-meter -- with a time of 12.1 seconds. She twice set school records in the 100 hurdles earlier this season.



The Green Terrors (6-4, 4-1 in the MAC-Southwest) likely will have to sweep two doubleheaders this weekend to have any chance of catching first-place Franklin & Marshall (13-5, 7-0 in the MAC-SW) and qualifying for postseason play.

The Green Terrors will travel to Gettysburg on Saturday before playing host to Dickinson Sunday.

They also will need help from Gettysburg, which will play F & M tomorrow. If needed, the Green Terrors will travel to F & M Tuesday to decide the MAC-Southwest regular-season title with a playoff berth on the line.
