Wrestler Freeman on top of academics


January 09, 1995|By Doug Brown | Doug Brown,Sun Staff Writer

Brian Freeman (Oakland Mills) had an honor at Michigan that had nothing to do with his sport of wrestling.

Freeman, a senior competing for the 134-pound job, was one of eight Rhodes Scholar finalists chosen from Michigan's student body of 35,000. He went to Washington last month for final interviews, but didn't make the select 32.

At Oakland Mills, Freeman was a National Honor Society member and the school's 1991 scholar-athlete award winner. He is majoring in cellular/molecular biology at Michigan.


Dartmouth defensive tackle Zach Lehman (Phillips Exeter), a Baltimore resident, was named to the GTE Academic All-America first team. Lehman had his finest season as a senior, with 47 tackles, five for losses, and one sack. He played on Dartmouth's Ivy League championship teams in 1991 and 1992.


Adrienne Keith (Lake Clifton), a redshirt junior who transferred to Washington State from New Mexico Junior College, has been hampered by tendinitis in her knee and played in only three of the first seven games, averaging 1.3 points.

* Abbey Hamman (Lutheran) has two points and a steal in two games as a freshman at Bridgewater.


Dickinson freshmen Nick Hunter (Loyola) and Dave Krantz (Howard) finished 43rd (29 minutes, 44 seconds) and 44th (29:59), respectively, in a field of 75 in the Centennial Conference cross country championships. Krantz recorded three of Dickinson's top 15 times during the season. . . . Junior midfielder Julie Martin (Garrison Forest) started all 17 of Dickinson's field hockey games and had two goals. Dickinson freshman Mollie Brumfield (John Carroll) started five games.
