Anne Arundel County Snapshots

December 07, 2005


Kevin Etter, Severn


STATS -- Etter was named a team captain on the Admirals' basketball team by coach Tank Duckett. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior forward, who also is a talented lacrosse player, is being counted on by Duckett to lead a team that is rebuilding after going 12-8 last season and making the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs.

SIDELINES -- A standout defenseman who will play his third varsity season for Severn's lacrosse team this spring, Etter signed with Penn State. His older brother Sean started the past two seasons as a defenseman for the Nittany Lions. "I'm excited about going to Penn State, never heard a bad word about the school, nothing but good things," said Etter, who has a 3.0 grade point average and is a member of the National Honor Society. He plans to major in communications, with journalism as an elective. He enjoys writing, fly-fishing, camping and hiking with his brother and father, who is a veterinarian.


Lela Wedell, Northeast


STATS -- A four-year starter in field hockey and softball, Wedell was a second-team All-County midfielder (as voted by coaches) for the Eagles this fall. Her hustle and stick skills made the struggling Northeast program more competitive this past season. Coaches also selected her as an All-County outfielder in the spring.

SIDELINES -- Wedell, whose older sister Rachelle was an All-County catcher last spring and is now playing for Shippensburg University, is looking forward to softball season this spring, as the Eagles are a perennial county and state title contender. "Lela has improved every year and keeps everybody focused," said softball coach and athletic director Marianne Shultz. Wedell has a 3.0 grade point average and is a member of the Health Academy. She wants to attend Trinity College in Washington and hopes to have a career in the medical field or in child care. A popular baby sitter in her community, Wedell also works part time at a restaurant.
