June 18, 1993|By Doug Brown | Doug Brown,Staff Writer

Lombard captured its third Baltimore City Middle School Lacrosse League championship in five years in the opening game of the Hall of Fame Lacrosse Classic yesterday at Johns Hopkins' Homewood Field.

Lombard, which finished its season 13-0, got three goals each from Joe Keeling and Charles Williams in an 11-1 romp over Harlem Park (11-1-1). Only John Robinson solved Lombard goalie Michael Brown.

Joe Fowlkes, a former Morgan State football and lacrosse player who was in the 1981 Colts' training camp, has coached Lombard all five years of its existence.

"I'd be remiss, a bum, if I didn't give back to such a great game," said Fowlkes, who was on the cover of the 1978 NCAA Lacrosse Guide. "I want to do all I can to give young blacks a chance."

The BCMSLL was set up in 1989 by the Lacrosse Foundation with a grant from the Abell Foundation. The program for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders was expanded from six to 14 teams this season.

Players with the highest grade-point average on their teams were presented trophies at halftime. Those honored were: Jose McGraw, Lombard; Tenisha Flanagan, West Baltimore; Wayne Goines, Harlem Park; Curtis Drayton, Highlandtown; Terrance Townes, Winston; Sean Galloway, Garrison; Dean Tonto Cox, Native Americans; Michael Duke, Pimlico; Randolph Gray, Greenspring; Donte Everett, Calverton; Cory Snipe, Lemmel; Ha Vu Tran, Roland Park; and Donnel Adams, Diggs-Johnson.
