Seton Keough grad shines as college soccer player


October 28, 1997|By Natalie Harvey | Natalie Harvey,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE "LADY Paladins" of Furman University in Greenville, S.C., won the biggest victory in the school's 4-year-old women's soccer program, and East Columbian Sarah Tollick played a key role.

The team upset Florida State last month, 2-1, and it was Tollick who scored the winning goal with little more than a minute left in regulation. She also was credited with the assist on the first goal.

Sarah graduated earlier this year from Seton Keough High School in Baltimore, where she led the soccer team in scoring and was voted most valuable player. She also played on the Columbia Phoenix team that won the under-18 Maryland Cup championship June 1.

Her parents are Arthur and Diane Tollick of Kings Contrivance village.

News from Hammond High

A freshmen "parents-only" evening has been planned for 7: 30 p.m. Nov. 6 at Hammond High School, with guidance counselor Eileen Ruppel discussing "Helping Your Ninth-Grader Make a Successful Transition to High School."

The meeting is sponsored by the Eastern Coalition, a parent support network that provides information and skills for parents to address teens' peer pressure, disruptive behavior and substance-use prevention.

Parents also will be asked to sign a "Safe Home Pledge" and provide a substance-free environment during teen gatherings. Information: 410-997-3624.

Hammond High Principal Sylvia Pattillo has issued the list of youngsters selected by their respective department heads as September's "Students of the Month" for showing outstanding achievement and leadership.

They are: English, Tim Zeffiro; social studies, Rachel Harris; mathematics, Matt Green; science, Mary Porteous; business, Rob Schruefer; computer science, David Heine; foreign language, Afshan Nadeem; dance, Dave Britz; home economics, Genie Johns; music (band), Donnie Rice; art, Bo Park; physical education/health, Zameika Simmons; mentor program, Julie Humphries.

Finally, a little food for thought -- cookies and pizza, anyway.

Hammond High's Parent Teacher Student Association is taking prepaid orders until Monday for cookies, beverages and pizza from Jeanne's Gourmet in Westminster. Students have order forms. The forms also may be obtained at the school office. The incentive for students is movie passes for the top seller in each class.

Items available, according to the group's ways and means chair Kerry Greer, include cookie dough in scoop-and-bake tubs with enough for four dozen cookies in varieties ranging from oatmeal raisin and white chocolate macadamia to sugar-free chocolate chocolate chip; coffees, English tea and Dutch chocolate drinks; and Gianni's Pizza Kits offered in both pizza and cheese breads.

Orders can be picked up at the school office Nov. 20 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. -- just in time for Thanksgiving. (Wouldn't you prefer pizza to turkey?)
