Ex-Navy midfielder may land at Hopkins

April 25, 1994|By Jamison Hensley | Jamison Hensley,Contributing Writer

Tommy Roszko, a former Navy midfielder, has been accepted to Johns Hopkins and could receive need-based assistence but no athletic scholarship, said Hopkins coach Tony Seaman.

"He's applied to Hopkins and has been accepted, but he has not signed anything," Seaman said. "He has not made up his mind yet. He has financial needs, and could get help that way, but he has not been given an athletic scholarship."

Roszko, a 5-foot-8, 165-pound senior, did not play for the Midshipmen this year, but was listed on their opening roster.

Sports Information Director Tom Bates said Roszko had not been released from the academy, but would not comment any further under the privacy act.

Roszko, who is from Brightwaters, N.Y., scored 38 goals and had 30 assists in his three-year career. He had 16 goals and 12 assists last year.

Orangemen follow script

Syracuse, which since 1989 has put together a win streak of 10 games or more heading into the playoffs and has claimed three national titles, is again on a roll.

With its 18-15 win over Pennsylvania on Saturday, Syracuse (10-1) extended its consecutive win mark to eight. The Orangemen now only have home games against Massachusetts and Michigan State remaining before the NCAA tournament.

Earlier this season when Syracuse lost to Johns Hopkins and only beat Towson State by a goal, many thought the Orangemen were not at their traditional top form. Turns out Syracuse was just following tradition.

In the previous five years, Syracuse is 14-6 in its first four games and 48-2 in its last 10 games, which includes a 15-2 in the NCAA tournament. And Syracuse appears to be on that pace again.

"This year's Syracuse team is as good as I've ever seen," Penn coach G. W. Post said. "Everybody knows that their midfield is great with the returning All-Americans. But their defensemen are extremely talented with their sticks, and can run with most midfielders."

Coffman hits century mark

Jason Coffman probably never heard of the sophomore jinx.

In Salisbury State's 13-8 win over Washington College on Saturday, Coffman, a sophomore attackman, surpassed last year's total of 48 goals and scored the 100th goal of his career. Coffman was also the only freshman to be named to first-team Division III All-American last year.

Coffman is on a pace to break the school's career goal record of 179 held by Dave Cottle (1974-77), who is now the coach of Loyola.
