Carroll County Snapshots

October 19, 2005

Matt Angell, Francis Scott Key


STATS -- The senior nearly doubled his season output by rushing for a career-high 282 yards on 22 carries against Century on Oct. 7, including scoring runs of 20, 58 and 54 yards. The effort propelled him to the top of the county rushing leaders and increased his season average to nearly 8 yards a carry.

SIDELINES -- Eagles coach John Baugher recently all but stopped playing Angell on the defensive side of the ball, trying to let him focus on offense. The results have been dramatic, with the senior gaining 429 yards in his past two games. Baugher said Angell has some of the best balance he's ever seen, as he is consistently able to avoid tacklers and keep his feet. The three-sport athlete also was a second-team All-County infielder in baseball and a standout on the basketball team.

Kristen Harris, South Carroll


STATS -- The junior had two goals and an assist in a game last week against Middletown to move near the top of the county scoring list. She also has scored three goals against Francis Scott Key and two against Paint Branch. She had 12 goals through her team's first 12 games.

SIDELINES -- While Harris has always been a solid player, she has come into her own this season, using her quick bursts and aggressiveness to consistently cause problems for opposing defenses. Cavaliers coach Jerry Janowich said the forward works just as hard in practice as in games and it shows in her play. He said Harris came into the preseason in top condition and has been rewarded for her efforts with increased speed and stamina. She is also a standout in the classroom.
