Two student-athletes who were important to their respective basketball teams in Alex Denny of Broadneck and Erin Kennedy of Severna Park have been awarded $1,500 scholarships given annually by the Dick Hart Foundation. The Hart Foundation awards the scholarships to one boy and one girl basketball player who exemplify the intangibles of team play while also excelling in the classroom. Those attributes were stressed by the late Dick Hart, for whom the scholarships are named. Hart, a member of the Anne Arundel County Sports Hall of Fame, coached Andover High for 28 years before dying of cancer in 1991 at age 53. Andover had merged with Brooklyn Park to form North County, and Hart was named the Knights' first boys basketball coach for the 1990-91 season by principal Bill Wentworth.
