Friday rains push high school playoffs back


Friday's heavy rains washed out several important post-season high school sports events.

The county tennis and track championships and two lacrosse playoff games were postponed until tomorrow.

The county tennis tournament is slated to begin at 9 a.m. Monday, and officials hope to complete three rounds that day, said Westminster High boys coach Fran McCullin. The finals and consolation matches would be played starting at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

L All of the tennis matches are slated for North Carroll High.

Liberty's Brian Ninosky (14-1) and Westminster's Marco Fuggiti (11-2) are the favorites for the boys singles title. The two split their matches this year.

North Carroll's Rich Cutair and Eric Nowicki (12-0) are the top-seeded boys doubles team. Liberty's Ryan Dunham and Rob Hobson (12-2) are seeded second.

In the girls draw, Tina Pellkofter of Francis Scott Key (14-1), an exchange student from Germany, was unbeaten against county players. Lisa Kreski of North Carroll (8-4) is seeded second.

South Carroll and Westminster should dominate the doubles.

The Cavs are led by the duo of Carey Marschke and Angie Frizzell, who finished the regular season at 10-0.

Westminster counters with the team of Staci Schmidt and Cindy Dieterly, also 10-0.

South Carroll's team of Nikki Robitaille and Gretchen Fogle (13-1) were last year's runner-ups in No. 1 doubles and have received a first-round bye. They will likely see the Westminster team of Cara Ober and Laura Shoffner -- 11-2 on the season -- in the second round.

The Cavaliers have the top No. 2 doubles teams as well in Angie Frizzell and Carey Marschke, 12-1 in the regular season.

At No. 3, Westminster's Staci Schmidt and Cindy Dieterly are 10-0.

The top three finishers in the county tournament advance to this weekend's district tournament.

Friday's county track meet was rescheduled for 12:30 p.m. Monday at Western Maryland College.

Westminster is a strong favorite to sweep and repeat as girls and boys county champs.

In girls lacrosse, Liberty and North Carroll will try it one more time at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Liberty, with the winner getting a shot at undefeated and top-seeded Mount Hebron, which handily defeated Glenelg, 20-7, Friday in the other Class 1A/2A Region I semi.

It will be the third meeting between Liberty and North Carroll. Liberty won both regular season matchups in claiming the county title.

In boys action, third-seeded South Carroll will head back down to Howard County to take on second-seeded Centennial in a Class 3A/4A Region I contest.
