September 19, 1994|By Doug Brown | Doug Brown,Sun Staff Writer

Monroe Brown (Aberdeen) is back at his college alma mater, this time as a Penn State assistant basketball coach instead of as a star player.

Brown, a guard who scored 1,244 points in his career and was the team's Most Valuable Player in 1992, helped Penn State make three NIT appearances and advance to the second round of the 1991 NCAA Tournament.

Volleyball

Laura Cook (Chesapeake) was named MVP in the Penn State Classic, after leading the Nittany Lions to a 4-0 record in their opener. Proving that was no mistake, Cook had 20 kills and was named MVP in the Volleyball Monthly Invitational at Florida State, helping undefeated Penn State upset No. 2 UCLA.

* Marshall is buttressed by Karen Mioduszewski (Chesapeake), Collette Marquis (South River) and Bridget Repsher (Howard), all two- or three-time lettermen. Mioduszewski established a school record for blocks in one match (12), Marquis had 628 assists last season and Repsher set a school one-match mark for digs with 29.

Soccer

Amity Torbit (John Carroll) headed in the go-ahead goal as Barry University began defense of its NCAA Division II championship with a 3-1 win over Stetson.

* James Madison senior goalie Brian Bailey (Hammond) was named to the all-tournament team after making seven saves in two games in the Friends of Richmond (Va.) Classic.
