The Baltimore Sun will begin publishing weekly statistics, standings and polls in football, boys and girls soccer, field
hockey and volleyball next Tuesday.
Coaches or statisticians should phone in information from 3 to 6 p.m. this Sunday -- and each Sunday during the fall season -- at (410) 332-6200 or (800) 829-8000. Each week's stats should be cumulative.
For football, we need statistics for rushing (attempts, yards, touchdowns), passing (completions, attempts, yards, touchdowns), receiving (catches, yards, touchdowns), punting (attempts, yards, average), scoring (touchdowns, field goals, two-point conversions, PATs) and interceptions (number).
For soccer and field hockey, we need goals and assists and goalie save percentage (number of goals allowed divided by games played).
For volleyball, we need serve percentage (number of successful serves divided by attempts), kill average (number of kills divided by number of games), ace average (number of aces divided by number of games in which the player served).
Also on Sundays -- from 3 to 6 p.m. -- we will accept nominations for The Baltimore Sun Athlete of the Week. One boy and one girl will be selected each week and featured in Tuesday's editions.
