September 26, 1997|By Stan Rappaport | Stan Rappaport,SUN STAFF

Student-athletes and their parents can learn about the college athletic recruiting process at a seminar Tuesday at Centennial.

The program, organized by Centennial counselor Dave Greenberg and Mount Hebron counselor P.J. Kesmodel, will start at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. Panelists include Kathy Zerrlaut, UMBC assistant athletic director and NCAA compliance officer; Chris Weller, University of Maryland women's basketball coach, and Dick Edell, University of Maryland men's lacrosse coach.

Among the topics are the goals of the recruiting process and the specific roles of the NCAA, college coach, high school coach, student athlete, parent and counselor.

After the presentations there will be an opportunity for questions. Students hoping to earn an athletic scholarship are encouraged to attend.

Field hockey notes

Glenelg coach Ginger Kincaid said her team wasn't in a celebratory mood after its 3-2 win Tuesday at Hammond.

"They were disappointed that we gave up two goals," said


Kincaid is pleased with her offense, which has scored eight goals in four games.

"We have no problem scoring," said Kincaid. Rachel Ford, Amanda Wolfe and Amy Taylor each have two goals and Caroline Jones and Krystin Brown one apiece.

But defense is another story. "We're still breaking down defensively," said Kincaid, who has all new faces in the back except for Lauren Loveland and Leah Pelovitz. "How we do later will be determined by how well we come together and fill those holes. I think we'll fix it. It's just a matter of getting more game experience."

Bates out three months

Wilde Lake's Alicia Bates learned Monday that she will be out of action three months after a bone scan revealed a small fracture in her back.

Bates, who plays volleyball and basketball and runs track, said her back has bothered her on and off since she was a freshman. She said it got worse last spring when she high-jumped. She "tried to tough it out" this fall for volleyball, but the back hurt too much, and she hasn't played.

Bates, a 5-foot-10 forward, helped the Wildecats' basketball team to the county co-championship with Centennial and the Class 2A South region title. She is not expected to play basketball until after the holiday break.

"I'm just trying to take my mind off it," Bates said. "It kind of depresses me. I'm an active person."

Success at Chapelgate

Chapelgate's volleyball team has jumped out to a 5-1 overall mark and 2-0 in the Association of Independent Schools B division.

"I'm pleasantly pleased," said coach Chris Moxley. "We were expecting quite a rebuilding year after losing our setters a week before school started, but these girls have worked hard. They are dedicated and have learned the 6-2 offense and are running it well."

Sub Huber, a middle hitter, is setting, as is Devon Jancuska. Moxley said outside hitter Jennie Van Ness is playing well, and that the entire team is serving well.

"I'm looking forward to seeing improvement throughout the season," Moxley said.
