Shannon Grieve has resigned as girls varsity basketball coach at Howard to become the assistant women's basketball coach at the Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville.

"It was a professional move on my part," said Grieve, who coached four seasons for the Lions and will remain at the Ellicott City school teaching physical education and health. "My goal has always been to coach at the college level. It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up."

Grieve played basketball at Oakland Mills -- graduating in 1990 -- Catonsville Community College and Frostburg State University.

New Hebron coach

Mike Linsenmeyer has been hired to coach the Mount Hebron boys varsity basketball team, replacing John Aquilla.

Linsenmeyer, 29, a U.S. history and American government teacher at Mount Hebron, played point guard at Pallotti High (graduated in 1990) and at St. Mary's College. He has coached three JV sports at Mount Hebron in the past -- boys and girls soccer and boys basketball.

Swim championship

River Hill earned its fourth straight county swim title Sunday at Howard Community College. The Hawks finished with 155.50 points, followed by Hammond (133), Wilde Lake (115), Howard (112), Long Reach (66), Mount Hebron (41.50), Centennial (37), Glenelg (34), Oakland Mills (16) and Atholton (7).

Wilde Lake's Andrew Clegg and Howard's Chris Pearson were the top boys scorers, winning three events apiece for a maximum 21 points. Long Reach's Jennifer Irby and Kristin Smith and Hammond's Crystie McGrail were the top scoring girls with 19 points.

Other individual winners were: Hammond's Joe Benedetti and Beth Bellamy; Wilde Lake's Brittany Surkovich; River Hill's Brett Sauers and Dan Zohorsky; Howard's Kristin Newman; and Glenelg's Michelle Hinkle and David Stepp.

Profitable lacrosse

The boys and girls lacrosse doubleheader between Mount Hebron and Centennial on Friday night at UMBC was worth $900 to each school. The cost to rent the stadium was $1,400, but 700 fans paid $5 each to watch the event. Other costs were subtracted before splitting the money.
