North County's Moyer to anchor at Naval Academy Standout wants to play two sports


North County's superb student-athlete Shawn Moyer will attend the United States Naval Academy.

A soccer and lacrosse standout, Moyer is a 4.0 student and is his school's valedictorian.

"Looks like I'll be kicking the [soccer] ball at Navy," said Moyer, who will be among the 20 student-athletes on the 11th annual Anne Arundel All-County Academic-Athletic Team announced tomorrow.

Moyer has been all-county in both sports and said he may give lacrosse a shot as well at Navy.

* How about congrats to the top-ranked Chesapeake softball team (11-0) making it 30 in a row Friday with a 3-0 victory over No. 6 Severna Park (7-2)?

* Aren't congrats in order for Annapolis boys lacrosse coach Dan Hart, who started his coaching career at Meade, for posting career win No. 100 Friday night over Chesapeake, 11-3?

Hart, whose unranked Panthers are 7-1 overall, is 100-64.

* Have you heard that Coach Magazine, a national publication, named high school all-american football players for each state and four from Anne Arundel County were named honorable mention? Quarterback Eric Howard and running back Frank Brown of North County and linemen Chad DuBeau of Severna Park and Rich Abrams of Arundel were selected.

Howard, Brown, DuBeau and Abrams were all-county and members of The Baltimore Sun's All-Metro team.

* By scoring six goals Wednesday in a 15-12 loss to sixth-ranked Broadneck, doesn't Southern sophomore Becky Archambo bring back memories of her older sister Kelly, who was one of the most prolific scorers in county history?

* Did you hear that Davey Jones struck out 13 and walked only one in nine innings as the Lawmen-Rangers defeated the Pasadena Pirates, 10-4, in the Chesapeake Men's Senior Baseball League this past week?

* Even though he didn't get the win after getting all but one out in Old Mill's 10-inning, 3-2 win over Broadneck Wednesday, didn't junior right-hander Jeff Haynie feel great about the longest pitching stint of his young career?

Pat Crawford replaced Haynie in the 10th, got the final out and the Pats rallied for two runs in their final at-bat to pull it out. Crawford got credit for the win.

The longest Haynie had ever gone was eight innings as a freshman on the JV level, and he lost that game to Broadneck.

* If there was a patience award for high school baseball coaches, wouldn't Old Mill's Mel Montgomery win it hands down?

Montgomery stayed with left-hander Lee Haney with the tying and winning runs on base and two outs in Tuesday's 6-5 upset of Arundel, and the next day refused to get the hook out on Haynie until two outs in the 10th of the 3-2 win over Broadneck.

* You didn't think top-ranked Arundel (11-1) would go on a losing streak after dropping its first baseball game by 6-5 to Old Mill Tuesday, did you?

As all good teams do, the Wildcats bounced back with a 7-2 victory over Meade on a Wade Rolocut four-hitter and a 3-0, two-hit shutout of Broadneck behind ace Brandon Agamennone.

* With Arundel easily the county's top team, hasn't the marvelous transition from infielder to catcher by senior Mike Cozzone been a major factor in the Wildcats' success?

Doesn't Cozzone look like someone who has been catching all his life instead of someone in his first full season?

* When is the last time two sophomores combined for a no-hitter as Jay Sponaugle and Chuck Harris did for Glen Burnie by 9-2 over Broadneck Thursday?

* Has Chesapeake junior Jason White (3-1) emerged as not only the best left-hander in the county, but one of the top three pitchers period?

* Finally, have you got your tickets for Chuck Sturm's return to Michael's Thursday for the Round One Promotions dinner and boxing show? For information call (410) 760-2699.
