Alumni Report

Adam Goloboski came home to play a football game for the University of Richmond against Towson on Saturday, just 10 minutes from the former Hereford standout's home in Sparks, and it was a celebration to remember.

"My dad [Ted] had this all planned for a year," Goloboski said. "He bought 200 tickets and they were all gone quickly. It was quite a day."

Richmond clinched the Atlantic 10 south Division with a 48-21 win, and Goloboski had a team-leading 11 tackles and one sack.

And there was a post-game party at Outback Steakhouse to top it all off.

"Just winning in front of family and the hometown people was great," said the 6-foot, 220-pound junior linebacker. " Obviously a victory is great, but being able to do it close to where you live and having a bunch of people there to support you is a great feeling."

More than 200 friends, family and former coaches took part in the celebration of Goloboski's season for the Spiders (7-3 overall, 6-1 in A-10 South), as he has 39 solo tackles and 53 assisted for 92 stops.

He also has 4 1/2 tackles for losses of 26 yards, 2 1/2 sacks for 24 yards, two fumbles recovered and three passes broken up.

Making the day complete for Goloboski was a "little talking" to Towson running back Nick Williams and center Konstantinos Kosmakos.

"I had some comradery with Nick Williams and their center," Goloboski said. "I played rec ball with those guys. It was kind of fun during the game. We did some talking and had some laughs."

Myers top player

Gettysburg junior soccer forward Katie Myers (Western Tech) has been selected as the Centennial Conference Player of the Year after leading the Bullets in goals (nine) and points (21) this season.

Myers was also a repeat selection on the All-Centennial first team, tying for the conference lead with seven goals in league games. Gettysburg (6-3-1 in the Centennial) won all six league games in which Myers scored.

Gettysburg (11-7-3) completed its season Sunday with a 1-0 double overtime victory over Carnegie Mellon in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Southern Division III championship game.

Krebs a hit

Freshman volleyball player Stacey Krebs (Liberty) was a force behind Salisbury University's 26-10 record. Krebs was first on the team and fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference in both kill percentage (30.3) and blocks per game (1.11).
