June 19, 1994|By PAT O'MALLEY

Anne Arundel County will be well-represented at today's Crown High School All-Star Game at Oriole Park. Six players on the 15-member South squad that plays the North after the Orioles and Twins game are from the county.

Arundel High boasts pitcher Brandon Agamennone, infielder Jeff Hedrick and first baseman/catcher J.P. Noon. Arundel coach Bernie Walter is one of the coaches.

The other county players on the South are Old Mill pitcher Ken Pumphrey and outfielders Bob Christopher of North County and Wayne Small of Southern.


A ticket to the Orioles game is good for the Crown game.

Braves go for Spiegel

Congrats to former Northeast and Anne Arundel Community College catcher Rich Spiegel who recently signed with the Atlanta Braves. Spie

gel was drafted on the 22nd round by Atlanta and was anxious to begin his minor-league career.

"It's what I've always wanted to do, play pro baseball," said Spiegel.

The week before he signed, Spiegel was named Clark Griffith League Player of the Week after hitting .500 with four RBIs and a homer in his first five games with the Arlington Senators.

Spiegel also threw out six runners, and his strong arm was among several assets that appealed to Braves' scout Alex Smith.

Left-handed pitcher Zach Collins also was signed by the Braves. Collins, who pitched Arundel to a state title in 1991 as a junior but skipped his senior year due to personal problems, threw for Essex Community College this spring.

Haushalter honored

Anne Arundel County guidance counselor and Annapolis resident

Bill Haushalter, a former Navy assistant, will be one of 10 coaches inducted into the Pennsylvania Football Coaches Hall of Fame on July 29 in Hershey, Pa. The induction ceremony is a highlight of the Big 33 High School All Star Football Game proceedings.

His coaching career began as an assistant at Tyrone High in his native state before taking the head reins at Tussey Mountain. In 1961 Tussey Mountain went undefeated and won the Western Conference before Haushalter moved to Philipsburg-Osceola High in 1962 going 23-12-5 in four seasons.

Hired as an assistant at Lafayette College in 1966, Haushalter joined the U.S. Naval Academy staff as running backs coach in 1973. In his 14 seasons at Navy, Haushalter coached nine of the top 10 running backs in Academy history.

More kudos

Davidsonville resident Kevin Gibbs, an outfielder at Old Dominion, was named to the GTE Academic All-America second team. Gibbs, who was drafted by the Boston Red Sox out of high school, played his high school baseball at St. John's in D.C. where his dad, Ed, is head coach.

* Annapolis head football coach Roy Brown is this year's recipient of the Steve Carroll Award given for contributions to the coaching profession and the Coaches Association.

Dick Hart golf tourney

There's still time for county coaches to sign up for the Dick Hart Memorial Golf Classic at Rocky Point, June 28. To date only coaches at Annapolis, Glen Burnie and Northeast have signed ** up for the golf outing that raises money for a scholarship fund to perpetuate the name of the late Andover High coach.

The Anne Arundel County Coaches Association has donated money to sponsor a $5,000 hole-in-one for the event. To sign up call Ken Larson at (410) 859-3810.

Stielper hoops it up

Steve Stielper, a Dick Hart protege and the county's all-time single-season scorer at 33.04 in 1975-76, especially enjoyed last weekend's 3-on-3 Hoop It Up at Camden Yards.

The 6-foot-8 Stielper, 35, played on the Gunther's team with Annapolis head boys coach John Brady, former Hart assistant Dan Krimmelbein and Mike Cherigo.

It was quite a thrill for him to play again considering that he successfully battled cancer and had a kidney removed.

North County names coaches

North County has named Greg Helms and Cara Hergan as its new soccer coaches.

Helms, last year's assistant girls coach to Marianne Shultz, succeeds Steve Malone as head boys coach, and Hergan, assistant boys coach, is the new girls head coach. Shultz resigned, and Malone retired.
