January 25, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Howard County Youth Hockey Club's MITE-A team will travel to St. Claire Shores, Mich., this weekend to skate in the National Silverstick Youth Hockey competition, which includes teams from the United States and Canada.

The team (8- to 9-year-olds) won the Mid-Atlantic Regional Silverstick Tournament in November at the Columbia Ice Rink in Oakland Mills village.

The skaters and their parents have held a variety of fund-raisers; selling pizzas and baked goods and a raffle of Washington Capitals' tickets. On Sunday Total Concepts Salon in Long Reach village donated the day's proceeds from a Haircut-A-Thon to the team.

Six of the MITE-A team members, some of whom have been skating since age 3, live in Columbia. Nikolas Appleby, Jonathan Martinez, Zachary Mason and Dominic Uccellini all live in east Columbia. And Colin Brumsted and Nick Linaburg live in the western part of town.

Their teammates are: Daniel Buswell of Baltimore; James Doherty of Elkridge; Michael Down and Steven Moscoe from Ellicott City; Chuck Henn of Hampstead; Kyle Keller of Sandy Spring; Joshua Merson from Hanove; and Matthew Pinto of Sykesville.

The hockey club's chairman, Bruce Moscoe, thanks everyone who has supported and encouraged the team.

We all hope the team does well in Michigan. Information: 410-750-1154.
