AACS's Bitzer breaks record

Boys lacrosse

April 05, 2001|By Pat O'Malley

An assist 30 seconds into the final period against Severn yesterday gave Alex Bitzer of Annapolis Area Christian School his 325th career point in boys lacrosse, breaking the nearly 20-year-old state record of 324 set by St. Mary's Brian Wood.

Wood, inducted into the Anne Arundel County Sports Hall of Fame last year, had a four-year high school career before going on to become a four-time All-American at Johns Hopkins University.

McDonogh's Bobby Benson, the 1999 Sun Metro Player of the Year, finished his career with 323 points.

Bitzer, also a four-year player, tied Wood's record with a goal in the first half of a 12-6 loss to No. 2-ranked Severn (4-2).

"It was big day for us with Alex setting the record, especially since it came against a quality team like Severn," said Dick Bitzer, the father of Alex and also the head coach of the Eagles (5-3).
