Track stars qualify for NCAAs

April 07, 1994|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Sun Staff Writer

Liberty grad Julie Cox was one of two Western Maryland College track and field standouts to qualify for the NCAA Division III championships.

Cox posted a provisional standard time of 15.8 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles in last weekend's Colonial Relays at the College of William and Mary. She was a Division III All-America in the event as a freshman after taking sixth in the national championships last year.

Fellow sophomore Carl Von Tobel became an automatic qualifier in the javelin with a throw of 202 feet, 7 inches -- enabling him to place fourth in the collegiate/open division.

The Green Terrors men's 800-relay team set a school record with a time of 1:32.2.

Rob Johnson and Ronnie Miller, both North Carroll grads, are on the unit along with Bill Tyrell and Kent Lightbourn.

Baseball

Junior pitcher Brett Kehler saw opposite ends of the spectrum on the mound for the Green Terrors.

In Saturday's sweep of Swarthmore, he earned a win in the 5-4 opener and then got the save in the 3-1 nightcap with two perfect innings.

Senior center fielder Gary Carter had three hits in six at-bats in the sweep, including a two-run homer and a double with three runs scored.

Starting Tuesday against Gettysburg, he gave up nine runs -- four earned -- in 4 1/3 innings as the visiting Bullets rolled to a 24-5 win.

The Green Terrors (6-6) travel to Gettysburg tomorrow before playing two at Haverford on Saturday.

The remainder of their schedule will be against Centennial Conference foes. They are 2-1 in conference play and finished their non-conference slate at 4-5.

Softball

The Green Terrors (3-1, 2-0 in the CC) opened their new Centennial Conference schedule in style on Saturday with consecutive shutout wins against Franklin & Marshall.

They opened the doubleheader with a 14-0 win and came back to win the second game, 10-0. Senior third baseman Sandra Johnson (North Carroll) went 5-for-7 in the two games with two doubles, seven RBIs and four runs scored.

Yesterday's doubleheader at Washington College (3-5, 0-2) was postponed due to rain and will be made up tomorrow.

The Green Terrors will return home to play two against Gettysburg on Saturday.

Men's lacrosse

After two previous one-goal games, the Green Terrors finally had an easy time Tuesday with a 14-4 win over visiting Goucher.

Ken Higgs (Westminster) continued his torrid scoring pace with three goals and three assists. The senior co-captain had three goals and one assist in the Green Terrors' 11-10 overtime loss against St. Mary's Thursday before scoring three goals and two assists in a 13-12 win against Mary Washington on Saturday.

The Green Terrors (3-5) will open their conference schedule Saturday at home against Swarthmore (1-8) before traveling to fourth-ranked Gettysburg (5-0) on Wednesday.

Women's lacrosse

Any questions coach Kim Easterday might have had coming into the season on who would pick up the scoring slack resulting from the graduation of Julia Mignatti (38 goals, 14 assists in 1993) were answered this week as the Green Terrors remained unbeaten at 5-0 going into yesterday's game at Washington College.

Sophomore Denise Sarver was selected as last week's Centennial Conference Player of the Week after scoring six goals in the Green Terrors' 14-12 win over Gettysburg last Thursday. She followed that with a three-goal, two-assist effort in a 15-4 win against Goucher on Saturday.

On Monday, nine different players scored in the Green Terrors' 21-7 win over Bryn Mawr.

Tennis

Junior Marc Scwaab (Liberty) dropped only one game in a 6-1, 6-0 win against Gallaudet's Jody Cripps at No. 6 singles on Saturday. The Green Terrors swept visiting Gallaudet, 9-0, for their first win of the season in three tries.

The women fell to 1-3 with a 5-4 loss to York on Tuesday.
