April 24, 1996|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Many people have been asking about the 14th annual Baltimore Sun All-Anne Arundel County Academic Athletic Team. The application for the team will be published this week and a copy will be sent to the county high school athletic directors.

All high school students who reside in Anne Arundel County are eligible to enter. We are looking for the most well rounded student-athletes we can find. Ten boys and 10 girls will be selected and honored at a banquet in conjunction with the Anne Arundel Trade Council spring membership meeting on May 20.

Around the horn

Old Mill's Mike Ziegler, a 6-foot-2 and 225-pound junior right-hander, is expected to take a shot at the state record for consecutive scoreless innings (30 1/3 ), set by Mike Wooden of North County in 1995, in a 7 p.m. game Friday at Joe Cannon vs. No. 16 Broadneck (8-5).

With his 13-0 shutout at No. 12 Severna Park (7-4) Monday, Ziegler, who leads the county at 6-0, extended his string of goose eggs to 25. That is the fourth best scoreless inning streak in county history.

Arundel's Monte Schrader went 26 innings without giving up a run in 1983 and Kyle Coffman, also of Arundel, broke Schrader's record in 1987.

Coffman's 28 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings stood as a state record until Wooden passed it last season. Wooden, who is a freshman pitcher at the Univerity of Maryland, holds several county records, including 34 1/3 straight innings without yielding an earned run.

No. 3 Old Mill's infield of first baseman Jason Sieklicki, second baseman Chad Gerben, shortstop Charlie Killmayer and third baseman Brian Bogle bailed Ziegler out of fifth- and sixth-inning jams by turning a double play in each inning. Also, catcher Shane Thompson, who homered and had three RBIs, threw out a runner attempting to steal in the fourth inning with Old Mill (12-1) leading, 7-0.

Upset revisited

North County coach Don Usewick was ecstatic after his Knights (5-6) upset No. 1 Arundel (11-3) by 12-9 on Monday with senior Wayne Feuerherd having a career day.

"It was an unbelievable win considering that Wayne gave up seven hits and hit four batters, but he hung in there to go all the way," said Usewick.

Arundel got four runs in the bottom of the seventh off Feuerherd, but the latter's seven RBIs on three hits were too much for the Wildcats to overcome.

Top-ranked Arundel hosts No. 8 Chesapeake (8-3) today at 3: 45 with Cougar ace Jared Vogt (4-1) expected to pitch for Chesapeake.

Extra innings

In what might have been a first, Chesapeake's Ryan Moore pitched a complete-game, 12-5 victory over Southern (4-8) on Monday while his little brother, freshman Adam Moore, pitched a complete-game victory over Southern the same day. . . . No. 2 Mount St. Joseph's county connection of coach Dave Norton (Lake Shore), pitcher Ryan Baker (Linthicum) and infielder Mark Teixeira (Severna Park) led a 12-0 rout of one of the D.C. area's top teams in Riverdale Baptist on Saturday. Baker three-hit the Prince Georges power while Teixeira had a double and a couple of RBIs before homering and doubling in a 9-1 victory over LTC Bishop Ford High of New York in the Gaels' second game Saturday. . . . The fifth Friends of Joe Cannon Scholar-Athlete Banquet is set for Sunday, May 19, at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, with the all-stars seniors game to be played Sunday, June 2, at Joe Cannon Stadium. All 12 county public schools will be represented at the banquet and all-star game.
