Anne Arundel County Snapshots

October 19, 2005

Damien Kinchen, Annapolis


STATS -- Kinchen has led the No. 15 Panthers to a 5-1 start, including Friday's 34-25 upset of then-No. 9 Arundel (4-2). The senior running back ran for 97 yards and three touchdowns in that game and has 472 yards rushing with eight touchdowns on the season. He also has done well in the secondary.

SIDELINES -- Kinchen is ranked in the top 100 of his senior class with a 3.75 grade point average. He also plays basketball and participates in outdoor track. Interested in the University of Maryland, Kinchen said he loves math and science and plans to become a computer engineer. His mother, Bernice, died suddenly in May 2004 and Kinchen credits his older brother, Marc, for his "guidance and influence."

Megan Jendrossek, Archbishop Spalding


STATS -- The senior midfielder has provided stability on defense and offense for the No. 5 Cavaliers (10-3-4), who battled No. 3 Roland Park to a 1-1 tie Friday. Jendrossek scored the lone goal for the Cavaliers, a likely playoff contender in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

SIDELINES -- Jendrossek, who loves to cook and often does so for her family, plays her best sport in the spring and has received a lacrosse scholarship to the University of Richmond. She scored 26 goals and had 10 assists as a second-team All-County midfielder last year as a junior. She is also a standout in the classroom with a 4.1 grade point average, and she is ranked 43rd in her senior class of 241. Jendrossek plans to major in business.
