September 25, 1998|By Katherine Dunn and Lem Satterfield | Katherine Dunn and Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

Calvert Hall's seven starting offensive linemen have an average size of 6-foot-2, 240 pounds, an average grade-point average of 3.8, and the six seniors among them boast an `D average SAT score of 1,390.

Center Brad Buser (6-1, 222) has a 1,500 SAT score and a 4.0 GPA; twin and guard Paul Buser also stands at 6-1, 222 with a 4.0, and is at 1,470 SAT. Tackle Tom Epps (6-2, 275) has a 4.0 and a 1,440 SAT, and junior tackle Lou Lombardo (6-7, 285) carries a 3.7.

Fred Taber (6-3, 242) has a 3.9 GPA and an 1,110 SAT.

The smallest of the bunch are Alan Maszarose (6-2, 215) and Matt Gorius (5-11, 210). Both Maszarose, a second-team All-Metro pick, and Gorius carry 3.7s. Gorius has a 1,370 SAT and Maszarose is at 1,190.

High-flying Mawrtians

Bryn Mawr's third-ranked field hockey team improved to 8-0, the best record in the metro area, after shutting out four teams that competed in last year's state public-schools tournament.

With Tuesday's 3-0 win over No. 10-ranked Mount Hebron, a Class 2A finalist last fall, the Vikings have now outscored opponents 30-0.

Last weekend, the Mawrtians edged three-time defending state Class 2A champion Bethesda-Chevy Chase in a sudden-death shootout and then beat state Class 1A finalist Kent, 2-0, to win the North East Tournament in Cecil County. They also beat Class semifinalist Towson, 2-0.

Laura Birx, Kelly Noon, Sarah Sanborn, Amy Price, Jen Ahn, Courtney Shay, Lee Wheeler and goalie Katie Coyne have been key defensive players. Ginna Novak and Jessica McAdams lead team scoring with eight goals each.

Damian dominates

Junior All-America running back Damien Beane (City) rushed for 254 yards on 34 carries and two touchdowns in Shepherd College's 27-20 win over visiting Clarion last weekend to earn Player of the Week honors in the West Virginia Interscholastic Athletic Conference for the second consecutive week.

Beane moved into second place on the West Virginia school's all-time rushing chart with 3,496 yards and is 871 yards off the career rushing record; three games shy of the school's record for career games over 100-yards; seven short of the career TDs record; 58 points from the all-time scoring record and 253 from a mark for career carries.

Gibbons on go

Coach Scott Ripley has Cardinal Gibbons' football team at 2-0 after the Crusaders were 1-19 over the previous two seasons.

Bull Run

Tomorrow's Bull Run Cross Country Invitational at Hereford will feature seeded races for the first time. The annual event highlights the top boys and girls from more than 90 schools throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

The boys seeded race starts at 11: 30 a.m., with the girls running at noon. The large-schools boys race starts at 9: 15 a.m. followed by the large-school girls at 10: 20. The small-school boys race begins at 2, followed by the girls at 3: 05.

Good news/bad news

Maryvale's Stephanie Sybert helped her soccer team get off to an explosive start with nine points in the Lions' first two games. The Lions outscored those opponents, 12-0, including a 6-0 win over Severn, defending Catholic League B Division tournament champ.

Sybert, a sophomore striker, scored seven goals and had two assists. Coach Chuck Teal said she had other chances to score but passed instead.

However, not all the news is good for the Lions, who won the B Division regular-season title last year. Brooke Stastny, All-Metro second team midfielder and Olympic Development Program national pool player, will miss the season because of a bone break in her right foot in a club game Sunday.

Close call

No. 4-ranked Randallstown, Hereford, Lansdowne, Loch Raven and Patapsco are all 3-0 in Baltimore County's Class 1A-2A Division of football. Hereford, the defending Class 1A state champ, has won 16 straight games and 26 of its past 27 games.

And last year's All-Metro punter, Hereford's Roger Evans, is averaging 40.1 yards at 2-0 Lackawanna (Pa.) Junior College.

Division showdown

Patapsco plays host to Kenwood's field hockey team at 10 a.m. tomorrow at 10 a.m. in what could be the decisive game in Baltimore County's Mallard Division. Both are 4-0 in the division.

Two-time division champ Patapsco comes into the game with a 4-1 record, having lost only to Park. The Patriots have outscored their division opponents by 26-0.

The Bluebirds have posted similar results, losing only to Heron Division foe Franklin while shutting out the others 22-0.
