Ndp, Mt. Hebron Play Again, Top Rank In Sight

April 24, 1997|By Katherine Dunn and Lem Satterfield | Katherine Dunn and Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

Notre Dame Prep will be out to reclaim the No. 1 ranking when it faces No. 2 Mount Hebron at 6 p.m. Saturday in the Maryland Lacrosse Showdown at Johns Hopkins Homewood Field.

The No. 3 Pirates (6-1) had been No. 1 all season until losing to St. Mary's last week, but they took a step toward climbing back to the top by beating new No. 1 Roland Park 15-5 on Tuesday.

Roland Park is the only team to have beaten Mount Hebron (8-1) this season. The Reds won 11-8 on March 27, but the Vikings have won seven straight since. They beat their two Howard County opponents last week by a combined score of 50-1.

The second annual showdown, which pits some of the area's top private school teams against some of the best public school teams, also features No. 9 St. Paul's girls vs. No. 8 Dulaney at 4 p.m.

In the boys competition, unbeaten and No. 1 Boys' Latin faces No. 12 Dulaney at noon, followed by No. 9 Mount Hebron vs. No. 2 Calvert Hall at 2.

Sister acts

What's it take for a local Association of Independent Schools lacrosse team to break into the Top 10? Sisters, apparently.

All of the Top 10 AIS teams from Baltimore City or Baltimore County have at least one set of sisters on their rosters.

No. 9 Bryn Mawr wins this sibling rivalry with three sister acts, including two sets of twins: Senior twins Robin and Katie MacColl, senior Brooke Wheeler and her freshman sisters Kate and Lee, and junior Theresa Mulaikal and sister Liz, a freshman.

Third-ranked Notre Dame Prep has seniors Sheehan Stanwick and Lacey Aumiller and their sophomore sisters Wick Stanwick and Lauren Aumiller.

Top-ranked Roland Park has senior Reagan and sophomore Kristin Raneri, and No. 10 St. Paul's has sophomore twins Alison and Hilary Polk-Williams.

Gators/aids

Jessica Rock's two-out, two-on double drove in two runs in the home eighth to give Seton Keough a 3-2 win over McDonogh Tuesday and keep the Gators in the Catholic League softball hunt.

The Gators (7-4 overall, 7-3 league) are locked in a battle with Mount de Sales, Institute of Notre Dame and John Carroll for second-place behind unbeaten and No. 1 Archbishop Spalding.

Sophomore Rock (2-2, 13 strikeouts in 14 innings) also splits time on the mound with freshman Kristen Zaleski (5-2, 36 strikeouts in 40 innings).

In addition to Rock, who is batting .577, the Gators have relied on Christine Thompson (.545). Defensively, first baseman Becky Smith, with a .958 fielding average, and catcher Melissa Long have been the leaders.
