Athletes of the Week

October 09, 2002


Danny Tyrrell

North Harford, football

The senior quarterback was 11-for-16 passing for 217 yards and scores of 16, 29 and 30 yards and a two-point conversion, and rushed for another touchdown in the Hawks' 30-12 rout of then-No. 4 Joppatowne. Tyrrell also played defensive back, helping North Harford to contain D'Angelo Goffigan, a second-team All-Metro player who had rushed for nearly 200 yards a week earlier.

The Harford County League homecoming victory helped the Hawks remain in contention for the county title with a 3-2 overall record and a 1-1 league mark. And the win came over a visiting Mariners squad that is not only the defending county champion, but also was last fall's Class 2A state runner-up.


Emily Berman

Towson, volleyball

The senior hitter, a 2001 first-team All-Baltimore City/County performer, led the top-ranked Generals (6-0) to the championship in the highly regarded Bulldog Tournament at North Caroline High on Saturday.

Berman finished the day with 50 kills and seven blocks, and was successful on 52 of 55 serves with 12 aces as the Generals finished atop the 12-team field. After going 8-1 in pool play, the defending Class 2A champions defeated Patuxent in the semifinals before sweeping two games against Calvert - 15-7 and 15-11 - in the final, where she finished with six kills and four blocks. Last Tuesday, the team tri-captain started out the week with 20 kills and seven blocks in a three-game sweep against Owings Mills.
