To get this honor, students must apply themselves


February 09, 1994|By PAT O'MALLEY

This spring, the 12th annual Baltimore Sun for Anne Arundel's Academic-Athletic Team will be selected, and if you are one of those young people who excels on and off the field, be on the lookout for the application.

Ten boys and 10 girls will be selected for the team that recognizes the county's top students who combine academic excellence with varsity athletics.

Each candidate must fill out the application, which will run in The Baltimore Sun, and send it with a resume by the deadline of April 8.

To qualify, the student must reside in Anne Arundel County, play at least one varsity sport while maintaining a grade-point average of 3.00 or better and be involved in other school or community activities.

Your resume should be neat and imaginative, as if you were applying for a job or college admission, and should include recommendation letters from teachers, coaches and employers.

You also will be asked to write a brief essay on a topic included in the application.

Provide as much information as possible in your application because most candidates will be exceptional and limiting the selections to 20 is no easy job.

The final 20 will be honored at a banquet in May at the Anne Arundel Trade Council's spring general membership meeting. Two overall winners, one boy and one girl, will receive awards after the individual presentations.

Help from a peer

Annapolis boys basketball coach John Brady gave credit to one of his peers for the 2-3 zone he used in the second half of Monday's 101-93 win at Southern.

"[Glen Burnie coach Terry] Bogle told me to use a zone to contain Chatney Howard, and it worked," Brady said.

Howard had 21 points in the first half but managed only one field goal and 11 points in the last two periods.

"I'm going to ask Terry what to do Friday night," Brady said.

No. 6 Annapolis (14-2) plays host to 10th-ranked Glen Burnie (14-2) Friday in a showdown that could decide the top seed in the Class 4A East Region.

With his 32 points Monday night, Howard ran his total to 1,380 in a brilliant three-year career. The Southern senior is the Bulldogs' second all-time leading scorer behind 1991 graduate Vince Barnett.

In four varsity seasons, Barnett scored a county and Southern career record 1,823 points. Howard, who leads the county in scoring with an average of 27.1, broke Barnett's single-season record of 537 points set in 1991 by scoring 575 last year.

Football players move on

Congratulations to North County's All-County pass receiver and return specialist Teon Carter and former Annapolis standout linebacker Jamie Cook.

Carter, who grabbed 37 passes for 539 yards and had 1,185 all-purpose yards and 14 touchdowns, has received a full grant-in-aid to play at NAIA Division II Central Oklahoma.

"They told Teon he would be a punt and kick return specialist," said North County coach Chuck Markiewicz.

Cook, a 6-foot, 200-pound defensive back who runs the 40-yard -- in 4.3 seconds, has accepted a scholarship to Brigham Young University. A superb athlete, Cook has two years of Division I eligibility at BYU after taking a detour upon graduation from Annapolis.

As a junior defensive end at Annapolis, Cook was a Baltimore Sun All-Metro choice in 1988, and he repeated as an All-Metro player as a linebacker his senior year.

Cook accepted a scholarship to Morgan State, but left for personal reasons. After a year off, he has spent the past two years starring for JuCo powerhouse Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho.

Another county alumnus will join Cook in the BYU secondary: Desmond "Desi" Lomax, a second-team All-County defensive back from Arundel in 1991. Lomax was redshirted at BYU this past fall.

Desi's twin brother, Monte, was a first-team All-County linebacker at Arundel in 1991.
