Severna Park field hockey standout Lauren Maranto, The Sun's All-Metro Player of the Year, signed to play at Shippensburg (Pa.) University next fall. The center defender led the No. 1 Falcons to their 14th state title last fall, scoring five goals and adding seven assists while anchoring a back line that posted 12 shutouts in an 18-1 season. Shippensburg, coached by Bertie Landis, finished with a program-best 19-4 mark last season and reached the Division II national semifinals. Maranto said the school had a strong business program and the team is graduating starters at center defender, giving her a chance to contribute quickly.

Kelley Tiesi has already established herself as one of the top NCAA Division II pitchers ever with 1,023 strikeouts for sixth place on the all-time list. The former Catholic High phenom has mastered six pitches to help Shippensburg get close to two national titles (it finished third and fifth, respectively, in her freshman and sophomore seasons). Now as she prepares for her last postseason run, the 5-foot-10 Tiesi believes she has grown as a pitcher and a person. "I definitely am a smarter player all-around as far as pitching and the whole game is concerned," she said last week.

As Sarah Costa boarded a plane yesterday morning to fly to Orlando, Fla., for the NCAA Division II softball tournament, she couldn't help but remember all the good times of a 46-4 ride for Shippensburg University to the final eight. "Every time, we enjoyed one of those special moments," said the former Atholton High standout, "it seemed like we'd come right back with another unforgettable moment. I feel so good about our chances since we're the only team coming back to championships." Shippensburg had a 1-2 record in the final eight last season, losing back-to-back games after opening with a 3-2 victory over West Florida behind a two-run home run by Costa.

The school doesn't have much of a track record for producing athletes who spend Saturday afternoons on a football field. So how did Joel Gamble find his way from Carver to Shippensburg University in central Pennsylvania? "My father [Ricardo] took videotapes of me playing at Carver and sent them to a lot of coaches," said Gamble, a tight end who just completed a solid sophomore season for the Division II Raiders.

Aleksandar Pavlovic calls himself a virtual "runaway" from his home in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, four years ago to study and play basketball one year at Archbishop Spalding High School. "It took me five months to convince my parents to let me come here," said Pavlovic who is now a junior standout at Division II Shippensburg University. "It's safe to say they didn't want me to leave home. Things weren't that good back home when I left." But Pavlovic, 17, had an endless thirst for knowledge, and he would not be satisfied until he was enrolled at Spalding.

"They just say they know how well we've been doing because they've been following us and things like that. They make sure that they keep track."

A quiet love for football has carried Joel Gamble through many obstacles, from his days as a youth league reject to his current status as a highly regarded 6-foot-3, 255-pound senior tight end for Shippensburg University. First, it was the city of Baltimore that told Gamble he was too heavy to play organized football. He said he struggled to develop his game at his high school, Carver, which went winless his senior year. Now, he has suddenly found himself being treated like a lineman at Shippensburg.

As part of its effort to open doors to four-year schools, Carroll Community College has partnered with Shippensburg University in south-central Pennsylvania to streamline the transfer process and prevent students from losing time or duplicating courses.

The school has similar arrangements with Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa., Johns Hopkins Hospital Schools of Medical Imaging, University of Maryland University College as well as all public colleges and universities in Maryland.
