Playoff roundup High Schools

May 20, 2000|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

In three state title game appearances at UMBC stadium, Mount Hebron lacrosse star Lauren Kickham hasn't known what losing feels like.

Yesterday at UMBC, the 5-foot-11, Duke-bound senior All-Metro went a long way toward assuring that she never will.

Kickham's team-high eight points (three goals, five assists) highlighted Mount Hebron's 20-8 Class 3A-2A-1A girls state semifinal rout of Hereford, the 49th straight win for the Vikings, who are 74-5 with her in the lineup.

The Howard County champs got contributions from nine players, including Polly Purcell (four goals, three assists), Stephanie Scorachio (two, two), Katie Jeschke (four goals), Kristen Waagbo (three goals) and Lindsay Dutch (two goals).

"The seniors on this team feel fortunate to have been here a few times, but we try to play as if we've never been," said Kickham, one of eight Vikings headed to Division I programs.

Mount Hebron (18-0) will face the winner of today's Glenelg-Kent County game on Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Mount Hebron will be going for its fourth straight state title and eighth in the past nine years. The Vikings already have beaten Glenelg, 18-3.

Becky Braid scored three goals, and Gina Allen two for the Bulls (13-4), who led briefly, 1-0, and were within three goals twice early on.


Towson 7, Lansdowne 3: Mike Williams allowed four hits over eight innings as the visiting Generals scored four times in the eighth to capture the Class 2A North region.

Jon Karsos had a double, single and two RBIs to lead Towson, which also got three singles from Jared Satterfield. Ryan Valeri added a run-scoring double in the eighth.

Archbishop Curley 16, St. Paul's 9: Defending champion Archbishop Curley eliminated No.11 St. Paul's in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference double elimination playoffs.

Catcher Jack Herzog had three doubles and four RBIs, while Brooks Norris (three RBIs) and Justin Tester (two RBIs) had two hits each for the victors.

Perry Hall 1, Dulaney 1 (suspended in the second inning): Perry Hall had two outs and a runner at second in the bottom of the second inning against visiting Dulaney when rain suspended play in the Class 4A North region final. The game will resume where it left off at 1 this afternoon.


Alex Bruggeman and Ryan Grymes, in the final grouping, each got up and down for winning pars on the last hole, and John Carroll overhauled Calvert Hall, 11-10, for the MIAA dual-meet golf championship at Beechtree Golf Club yesterday.

The Bel Air school provided 24-year coach Henry Mountain with his first team crown.

Bruggeman and Grymes collected six of the available seven points from their Nos.5-6 pairings - three points for each match and one point for the overall betterball - in the 12-hole competition.
