The Schnydmans: Like father, like son.

Jerry Schnydman, a two-time lacrosse All-American in the mid-1960s for Johns Hopkins, was the Blue Jays' best faceoff specialist of his era and has been called on in the years since to instruct Blue Jays players in the art.

Now his son, Andy (St. Paul's), at 5 feet 3 about the same height as Jerry, is setting faceoff records at Dickinson. He won 16 of 20 against Stockton State, the ninth-best single-game performance in school history, and is second on Dickinson's career faceoffs chart.

In the first win over Randolph-Macon in Mary Washington history, Bill McLean (Towson) had seven goals in the 16-15 decision. . . . At Lynchburg, Jason Haslbeck (Fallston) scored six goals in the men's 13-12 loss to Western Maryland and Kathleen Harrington (Garrison Forest) made 20 saves in the women's win over Randolph-Macon. . . . Paul Schiavone (Southern-AA) became the first player in Marymount history to score 100 goals, in a win over Wesley. . . . Lehigh junior Brad Baker (Fallston) had three goals in a rout of St. Joseph's and three goals and two assists in a loss to UMBC. Senior goalie Chris Parandian (Mount Hebron) totaled 34 assists in the two games. . . . Freshman Heidi Hammes (Severn) had four goals and two assists in her first four games at Bucknell.

Softball

Freshman Lauren Mishner (McDonogh), Penn's second baseman, had a .915 fielding percentage and a .341 on-base percentage through 17 games. . . . Heather Smith (Glen Burnie) had four hits in East Carolina's doubleheader rout of Charleston Southern.

Baseball

Spurred by three Baltimore-area players, Shepherd is off to a 9-4 start. Junior Brian Sands (Arundel, Anne Arundel CC) is 1-2 with one save; freshman right fielder Damien Austin (Loyola) is third on the team in batting (.386) and freshman second baseman Bill Staub (Calvert Hall) has 16 RBIs and a team-high three home runs as the cleanup hitter.

Wake Forest junior outfielder and leadoff hitter Josh Itzoe (Calvert Hall) is batting .327 and has reached base in 19 of the past 21 games. Sophomore third baseman Larry Marino, also a Calvert Hall alum, leads the Deacons in hitting (.340).

Methodist is the top-ranked team in NCAA Division III with a 19-4 record, thanks in part to Robert Coppeler (Liberty), who's batting .314, has 16 stolen bases in 17 attempts and a club-high 23 RBIs.

Senior outfielder Juan Dorsey (Glenleg) is hitting .280 for James Madison. . . . Sophomore Jason Keefer (Severna Park) leads Hampden-Sydney in hitting (.489) and is second in RBIs.

Miscellaneous

James Madison sophomore Randy Frederick (Wilde Lake) was sixth overall and second in the parallel bars in the National Independent Gymnastics Championships. . . . Signed by St. Francis: soccer players Patricia Grygrowski (Maryvale Prep) and Angela Trancucci (Hammond).
