Soccer

The third annual Greater Harford Invitational, sanctioned by the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association, presented local top-notch teams with a chance to compete against challenging competition both locally and out of state.

Games were played all day last Saturday and Sunday at Edgewood High School and another nearby field. Nineteen girls teams and 61 boys teams faced one another, vying for championships in age groups scaling from under-10 to under-16.

Teams from North Carolina, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland, including many state champions or state runners-up, competed in the tourney.

Locally, the Greater Harford Soccer Club Storm won the under-16 championship game with a win over Downington of Pennsylvania.

The under-14 girls Joppatowne Soccer Club, competing in its first tournament as a team, was runner-up to the Northeast Sockers, their only loss.

Sara Biggs scored the winning goal in Joppatowne's first game against Bel Air, and Nikki Terzigni and Amanda Laughton scored goals in a 2-0 win over Fallston.

A strong defensive game was played by Carrie Gorsch, Tara Southerington, Kelly Vandarwarka, Nina Pierorazio, Holly Harris, Angela Ketner, Emily Francis, Kristin Jortland, Jamie Eng and Erica Adams. Nicole Duval was in goal for Joppatowne.

Swimming

Several local swimmers with the North Baltimore Aquatic Club, Edgewood Aquanauts and KCO competed in the Eastern Zone Championships at Oak Marr Pool in Fairfax, Va., last weekend.

For NBAC, Natika Dannenfelser, Megan Riddle, Melissa Harris, Brooke Frederick, Andrea McDonough and Shannon O'Neill competed in the girls 11-12 age bracket.

Dannenfelser, who met time standards in eight events, swam in six events. She advanced to finals in five of those events, most impressively with a fourth-place finish in the 50-meter breaststroke in 36.80 seconds, a top-16 eligible time.

Her other top eight finishes included high-endurance events. She swam the 400 free (4:46.57, sixth place), 200 IM (2:35.47, fourth place) and the 200 free (2:18.95, seventh place). She also finished the 100 breast in 1:22.32 for sixth place.

Other girls competing for NBAC in the 13-14 age group were Sarah Dannenfelser and Lara O'Neill.

Jinji Fraser, a 9-10 swimmer, competed for the Edgewood Aquanauts.

Also competing for the Aquanauts was Paige McCarthy in the 13-14 division.

Male swimmers included John Mundth (10-under) Chris Hubbard and Jeff Warwick (15-18), all for the Aquanauts.

Matt McDonough competed in the 10-under division for NBAC and Andy Dixon swam in the 15-up division for KCO.

Dixon, a student at Calvert Hall and resident of Bel Air, finished fourth in the finals of the 100 breast in 1:10.3, a second off his former personal best.
