Age irrelevant for IND soccer


High Schools

When Institute of Notre Dame girls soccer coach Dave Schaeffer scheduled the Indians to play in the Kenwood Invitational Cup, which was held Saturday, he had no idea 11 of his juniors and seniors would be on a peer ministry retreat for the weekend.

Now, Schaeffer might think about scheduling a tournament on the same weekend next year.

With mostly young varsity players and six girls up from the JV, the unranked Indians upset No. 12 Kenwood, 2-1, to win the White Division of the tournament. They also posted a quality, 3-1 first-round win over Leonardtown.

"I was ecstatic about the effort, and I was extremely happy for the team," Schaeffer said.

Younger players did almost all of the scoring as Tina Uddeme, a sophomore up from JV, and freshman Mara Hauf contributed the goals to the win over Kenwood. Hauf also had a goal against Leonardtown, as did sophomore Becky Fraser.

Dream teams

The Dunbar class of 1984 will play host to a basketball game matching former Poets standouts against those from Lake Clifton at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Expected to play are former Dunbar players Sam Cassell, Tyrone "Muggsy" Bogues, Reggie Williams, Kirk Lee and David Wingate. Among those expected to play for Lake Clifton are Shawnta Rogers, Melvin Mathias, Melvin Bartee, Ronald Lucas and Terry Hosley.

Tickets will be $12, with the proceeds benefiting the Poets' New Health Care Professions' ProGram. For more information, call Veronica Green at 443-829-4056 or Denise C. Whitfield at 410-342-0511.
