City league to mark 25th year

May 25, 1994|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Sun Staff Writer

Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, former Dunbar and University of Maryland basketball coach Bob Wade and the Washington Bullets cheerleading director Judy Holland will be guests as the Baltimore Neighborhood Basketball League celebrates its 25th anniversary June 1 at Hopkins Plaza.

"What we're doing is kind of promoting inner-city sports," said Anthony Lewis, coordinator of Project Reach One, Teach One, which sponsors the event.

"We thought we'd come down to where the businesses can visually see what the kids are accomplishing."

New coaches in Harford

Football coach Fred Myers, at Kenwood since 1986, is leaving to coach and teach at Edgewood. His past two teams averaged about 27 points a game.

A former All-Maryland Scholastic Association tackle at John Carroll, Myers has had coaching experience ranging from recreation to college (Johns Hopkins) over the past 20 years. He succeeds Steve Salters.

* North Harford baseball coach and teacher Tim Larrimore has accepted the additional duties of football coach, replacing Lauren Lydic Jr.

Larrimore is a 1984 graduate of North Caroline High School, where he was the most valuable player in football and baseball as a senior, and of Salisbury State, where he played varsity baseball.

He coached a year at Bel Air and has been at North Harford the past four years. He served four seasons as junior varsity football coach and just completed his fourth season as baseball coach.

Terry's triumphs

Natalie Terry, 16, a Western sophomore, has been making plenty of racket on the ice and on the tennis courts.

Last week, Terry, a B student, won the City-Wide League's No. 3 singles title to complete a 7-1 season. And since March, she has won six of seven figure skating competitions while skating for the Northwest Ice Rink.

A Level 6 skater (10 being the best), Terry is one of five competitors from Baltimore who will travel to next month's Ice Skating Institute of America national competition in Chicago.

St. Paul's stops Curley

St. Paul's golf team avenged an earlier loss to Archbishop Curley (14-1) in Monday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference golf championships.

The Crusaders' No. 1 golfer Josh Matthews defeated Dan Mielke, 2-1, beating him on the last hole by sinking a 15-foot put.

Also winning, 2-1, were the Crusaders' David Cameron over Curley's Dan Ball and Tad Bower over Kevin Asher. St. Paul's James Knott blanked Mike Bailey, 3-0.

"We don't have an outstanding star, but our success has been our depth," said coach Rick Collins, whose club was 12-2.

"I just think it was a team effort. We were able to get points from five out of six of our players. The team concept certainly helped us. They really supported each other."

Harris going to Frostburg

Southern High graduate Jamal Harris, who completed his sophomore year of baseball and basketball at Baltimore City Community College, has decided to attend Frostburg State next year.

Harris, a BCCC scholar-athlete, was a captain and point guard in basketball and a two-year starter as an outfielder for the baseball team.
