June 05, 1993|By Steven Kivinski

* Pat Cairns, Boys' Latin, Sr., goalie -- The Baltimore City Player of the Year allowed an average of fewer than four goals a game. Headed for Princeton, Cairns, 5 feet 11, 170 pounds, was at his best in regular-season wins over Mount St. Joseph (14 saves), Loyola (14), St. Mary's (13) and in close losses to Gilman (14) and St. Paul's (17). He led the Lakers to their third straight division title and their eighth playoff berth in the past 10 years.

* Matt Clune, St. Mary's, Jr., attack -- A pleasant surprise for the Saints, Clune led the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference champions with 32 goals and 24 assists. "He has excellent stickwork and he's a very good shooter inside," said St. Mary's coach Jim Moorhead.

* Mark Cornes, Gilman, Jr., midfield -- The second-leading scorer for Gilman, Cornes -- a second-team All-Metro pick last year -- was a key to the Greyhounds' transition. His leadership, along with his 22 goals and 19 assists, helped Gilman to a third-place Division I finish and a season-ending No. 4 ranking.

* Patrick Doyle, St. Paul's, Sr., defense -- An intense competitor, Doyle used his 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame well. "He's a physical player who runs the show on that end of the field," said St. Paul's coach Mitch Whiteley. "There were a number of players that he left talking to themselves by physically manhandling them. He was able to take a number of offensive players completely out of their game." Doyle will attend Duke.

* Bill Evans, Loyola, Sr., midfield -- Evans' highly developed, left-handed shot made him difficult to stop once he decided to go to the goal. His 43 goals and 22 assists put him among the MSA A Conference scoring leaders this season and gave him 139 career points. "He really altered his game to include everyone else to a greater extent," said Dons coach Joe McFadden. "He would draw the attention of defense and then distribute the ball." He will attend Johns Hopkins.

* Michael Ford, Towson, Sr., attack -- Despite rarely playing more than two quarters in each game, Ford produced 34 goals and 38 assists for the Class 1A-2A state champion Generals (12-0). "Mike has been the well that we've always gone to," said Generals coach Randy Dase. "He's been the franchise player the last two years." Ford is headed to Loyola College.

* Maury LaPointe, Mount St. Joseph, Sr., attack -- This four-year starter is a rare breed -- an attack player who also handled faceoffs for the Gaels. LaPointe, who is considering Loyola College and Essex Community College, scored 21 goals with 36 assists despite being double- and often triple-teamed.

* Mac McCulloch, St. Paul's, Sr., defense -- At 6 feet 1, 200 pounds, McCulloch was one of the area's biggest and best finesse players. A great ground-ball man with advanced stick skills, he was a key part of the Crusaders' clearing team. "He was a very good off-ball player," said Whiteley. McCulloch will attend Johns Hopkins.

* Todd Quenzer, Boys' Latin, Sr., defense -- The point-man in the Lakers' defense, Quenzer was assigned to cover the league's most potent offensive players every game. His excellent positioning, technique and physical play helped the Lakers limit their opposition to fewer than four goals a game. He will attend either Maryland or Towson State.

* Kevin Reichardt, St. Mary's, Sr., midfield -- His 16 goals and 19 assists, along with his leadership qualities, helped the Saints capture their first MSA A Conference championship. "He was the backbone of the whole team," said Moorhead. "He was an intangible leader who did so many things well that don't show up in stats." He will attend North Carolina.

* Andy Sharretts, Boys' Latin, Sr., midfield -- The chief cog in the wheels of the Lakers' transition, Sharretts -- an honorable-mention All-Metro pick last year -- was the top scorer on his squad with 28 goals and 13 assists. He is headed for Syracuse.

* Karl Zeller, Loyola, Jr., defense -- At 6 feet, 195 pounds, Zeller made life miserable for some of the league's top attackmen. "He has an extremely aggressive attitude and he throws checks to stop a guy dead," said McFadden. "When he throws a check, he'll hurt you."
