Golf team ties school's best mark


April 21, 1995|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Sun Staff Writer

Not only did Anne Arundel Community College's golf team improve its record to 6-0 yesterday, it also tied a school record for best regular-season score when it shot a 308 to defeat Montgomery-Rockville at Eisenhower Golf Course.

The last time Anne Arundel did this well was in May 1984, said coach Cal Peterson.

Two sophomores led the Pioneers: Kris Niemi with a 73 and Matt Hoffmann with a 76. Freshman Fred Ryder posted a 77.

"We've got a real good chance to repeat as Region XX champions, and we hope to go to the nationals and maybe finish in the top five," Peterson said.


Anne Arundel won the Maryland JuCo title for the third consecutive year and clinched the No. 1 seeding in the Region XX tournament by defeating Harford Community College yesterday, 15-3, in a game that was stopped after six innings.

The Pioneers (25-2, 15-0) pounded out 18 hits, including four by Amy Perry, who hit a three-run homer and had five RBIs. Kristie Rhinehart had two hits and scored two runs, Alicia Conine went 3-for-4 with three runs and four RBIs, and Angie Mihalik (8-0) allowed one earned run and struck out five.

The Pioneers were coming off Wednesday's 15-0 win over Cecil CC. Mandy McLaughlin (9-1) allowed two hits and struck out four, and faced only two batters over the minimum. Lisa Biederman went 2-for-2 with four RBIs, two runs scored and two walks. Jeannette Merrick went 1-for-2 with two RBIs and a run scored, and Jen Miller had two hits, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Monday, the Pioneers swept Hagerstown JC, 3-1 and 4-1. Rhinehart went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in the first game, and Perry knocked in two runs. McLaughlin gave up two hits and struck out three.

Brandee Pennington went 3-for-4 with two steals and a run scored in the second game. Biederman had two hits, including a two-run triple, and scored once. Mihalik gave up five hits and struck out two.

Before yesterday, Biederman had 17 RBIs in her last nine games, and 19 overall.

Anne Arundel is ranked No. 12 in the nation among junior colleges, and the loss of pitcher Carrie Parsons with a broken left hand hasn't hurt the rotation, which has a team ERA of 1.31. "The pitching is doing the job for us. Mandy and Angie are both able to step up for us," said coach Jim Hendricks.

Men's lacrosse

Anne Arundel did whatever it wanted Tuesday against Hagerstown JC, winning 37-0 to break a two-game losing streak. Thirty-three of the goals were assisted.

Andy Mocarsky had five goals and 12 assists. Scott Walstrum (five goals) and Bruce Alexander (two goals) each had six assists.

Taylor Boone (three goals, two assists), Craig McKenzie (two, two), Steve Roop (three goals), Rob Bates (three goals), Mike Majoros (three, three), Ryan Edwards (two goals), Anthony Mattera (two goals), Dominic Harris (two goals), Dan Cordell (two goals), Vinny Elliott (one goal), Matt Allen (one goal), Todd Harrison (one goal) and Damen Legato (two assists) also had a hand in the scoring.

OC Steve Morgan didn't have to make a save for the Pioneers (6-3).

Women's lacrosse

Anne Arundel ran its record to 9-1-1 Tuesday by defeating Catonsville CC, 12-7.

Six Pioneers scored, led by Robin Quinton with four goals and three assists. Michele Credno had three goals and one assist, and Trish Davidson added two goals and two assists. Karen Chesley, Chrissy Collins and Denise Perrone (one assist) each scored one goal.

Anne Arundel's defense was superb. Brandee Snyder made 17 saves, and she received plenty of assistance from Collins, Becky Rafter, Jen Welsh, Jen Shanahan and Nicole Merzendorf.

"We pretty much dominated, though we couldn't pull away," said coach Jim Shuck. "We controlled the midfield and when we set up our offense, we had a nice, steady attack."

Quinton, a graduate of Severn School, leads Anne Arundel in scoring with 39 goals and 23 assists. Chesley has 28 goals and 16 assists.
