Glenelg runners sweep

Carrie Selmer finished first in 20 minutes, 25 seconds, leading her defending champion girls team to a 44-46 win over runner-up Frederick in a field of nine teams. Rebecca Lyons finished sixth for Glenelg in 22: 43. Emily Hunt was 10th in 23: 18.

Jon Goldsmith led Glenelg's boys to a 50-60 win over Seneca Valley, winning in 17: 33. Teammate Brian Selmer was second at 17: 46. Philip Selmer was 10th in 18: 48.

Hammond's boys finished fourth led by Steve Rivas, who finished sixth in 18: 42 and Joe Blasi, who was 13th in 19: 05.

Extra point losses

Four of the 15 league football games played so far this season have been decided by missed extra-point attempts.

River Hill (2-2 overall, 1-2 league) has lost twice because of its inability to convert on kick attempts. Hammond and Glenelg also have each lost games by a point in which kicks were missed.

So far, two county kickers have perfect records. Centennial's Kevin Laycock is 6-for-6, and Mount Hebron's Eric Knight is 5-for-5. Long Reach's Justin Havrilla is 8-for-9 and has kicked two field goals.

Hawks ninth in nation

River Hill's boys soccer team is ranked ninth again in the second National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. The Hawks, ranked No. 1 in The Sun, are tied with Mishawaka-Marion High of Indiana. St. Benedict's Prep, of Newark, N.J., is No. 1.
