College a kick for '93 graduate of Glenelg High


November 28, 1996|By Sally Buckler | Sally Buckler,SPECIAL TO THE SUN


Marion and Bill Payne's younger son, Russell Payne, plays goalkeeper for the University of Maryland's varsity soccer team.

He has helped the team win this year's Atlantic Coast Conference championship, and last weekend, helped the team beat James Madison University in the first round of the NCAA Division I soccer tournament.

On Sunday, the Paynes will travel to College Park to cheer Russell, a 1993 graduate of Glenelg High School, to victory over William and Mary.

If Russell's team wins its next four games, it will be crowned national champion.

Russell, a biology major on a Benjamin Banneker Scholarship at Maryland, maintains an average between 3.0 and 3.25, according to his mother, who is principal of Mount View Middle School.

He trained in England last summer and was named to the ACC All Conference Team this year.

Russell hopes to play professional soccer in Europe or follow his brother, Brian Payne, to medical school.

Brian graduates May 2 from the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Russell's coach has given the soccer team a day off today. Russell will likely return home to celebrate Thanksgiving with his parents, possibly towing teammates from Wisconsin and elsewhere to share the family feast.

Youth symphony

Musician Frank Zappa, who died in 1993, said, "Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something."

If you'd like to hear sculpture by some wonderful young musicians, attend the first concert of the Maryland Youth Symphony Orchestra's 33rd season at 3 p.m. Dec. 8.

The performance at River Hill High School in Clarksville will include works by Corelli and Bizet, and seasonal favorites.

Glenwood's Angelo Gatto, the orchestra's founder and director, will conduct the concert.

Admission is $8 and $5 for seniors and students. Information: (410) 442-5645.

'Nutcracker on Ice'

Adrienne Grauso, who lives next door to us in Dayton, will be among the skaters who energetically take the ice for the Columbia Figure Skating Club's "Nutcracker on Ice" shows Dec. 15 and 22.

Sixteen Western Howard skaters will put the Nutcracker into graceful motion at 5: 30 p.m. and 6: 30 p.m.

Skaters from Clarksville are Melissa Anderson, Kristen Harbom, Rachel Hogue, Carrie Schoonover and Katie Turner.

Glenelg residents Lauren Capps, Stephanie Capps, Kelsey Church, Kendall Church, Dianna Lovins and Jessica Lovins will glide over the ice.

Elicia Epperlein of Woodbine, Lisa Caton and Rachel Stern of Marriottsville and Emily Hayes of Sykesville will join them.
