Football coaches at 2 schools


May 11, 2008|By Jeff Seidel

Bel Air and C. Milton Wright both recently got new varsity football coaches for the 2008 season.

David Yohn is taking over at C.M. Wright. The longtime North Harford assistant under Ken Brinkman will be the Bobcats' new coach. He's replacing Rick Keech, who resigned after the 2007 season.

Marc Alegi will be the new coach at Bel Air. He's been the junior varsity football coach at Havre de Grace, and will take over for Tony Belcastro, who resigned after last season.

Neither has ever been a head coach at the varsity level.

Yohn has been a key assistant under Brinkman during North Harford's playoff runs the past three seasons. The Hawks won a playoff game last year before falling to Wilde Lake in the second round.

Tennis -- C.M. Wright and Patterson Mill both were perfect in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference this season. The Mustangs went 11-0 in the conference to win the Chesapeake Division title. They beat out Fallston (7-2 in the division) and Bel Air (8-4). Patterson Mill, a first-year team composed of freshmen and sophomores, wrapped up first place in the Susquehanna Division with its 12-0 record. A late-season victory over second-place Aberdeen (11-2) secured their top spot. Havre de Grace was third at 10-4.

Lacrosse -- There are no league championship games for boys and girls lacrosse, as the set-ups are different from other sports. There are three divisions in lacrosse. Fallston fared the best overall, as the boys and girls each came away with a division title. The girls went 5-1 to win their division. Aberdeen's girls did even better in conference play, posting an 8-0 mark to capture the title in its division. North East and Rising Sun tied for first in the other girls division with a 6-2 mark. For the boys, Fallston held on to win the division with a 5-1 record. The Cougars' lone loss came to C.M. Wright a few weeks ago, after a nonconference defeat to Hereford. Joppatowne went 7-0 this year to take its division crown. Bohemia Manor took the third division crown with a 7-1 mark.

Baseball -- C.M. Wright and Fallston tied for the top spot in the Chesapeake Division in baseball, but it was the Mustangs who earned a spot in the UCBAC baseball title game last Wednesday at Ripken Stadium. The Mustangs became the first team in the UCBAC to win consecutive baseball championships, defeating Havre de Grace, 10-0, in six innings.

Track -- The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship meets are this week, with the final day for both occurring Saturday at Calvert Hall. Public schools' regional meets are later this week, with the state championships set for a week from Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Morgan State. C.M. Wright's girls won the Class 4A state cross country title.
