Five ready to join school's Hall of Fame Western Maryland notes

Five former standouts will be inducted into Western Maryland College's Sports Hall of Fame at its annual banquet and induction ceremony at 7 p.m. Saturday in the school's Decker College Center Forum.

The 1993 inductees -- Johnson Bowie, Victor McTeer, Terry Conover, Jayne Kernan Lacy and Lee Lodge -- bring the Hall's membership to 99.


Bowie of Brookhaven, Pa., is a member of Western Maryland's Class of 1971. The Dulaney High grad and Baltimore native is currently a director of physical education and athletics and professor of physical education at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

At WMC, he was a sprinter and ran relays on the track team and also was a forward on the soccer team. While pursuing his master's degree at Western Maryland, he was an assistant soccer, track and wrestling coach.


McTeer, a 1969 WMC grad and Baltimore native, now resides in Greenville, Miss., where he is a lawyer.

A football standout, McTeer was named to The Baltimore Sun's All-State Small College team in 1966. Later in his career, he selected to the Associated Press Little All-America team and the Mason-Dixon and Middle Atlantic conferences' All-Star squads.

Conover coached the Green Terrors' wrestling team to a Mason-Dixon Conference tournament title in 1971 and since has compiled a 275-103-2 mark in 22 years as head wrestling coach at Hanover (Pa.) High School.

A native of Lebanon, N.J., Conover earned bachelor's and master's degrees at Western Maryland.

Lacy, who graduated from Western Maryland in 1982, was a three-sport standout.

In softball and volleyball, she was a two-time all-Middle Atlantic Conference performer. The Towson High grad also enjoyed a solid four-year basketball career and ranks fourth on the school's all-time steals list with 177.

Lodge was the president for the Class of 1943 and enjoyed a stellar career in baseball and basketball at Western Maryland.

Lodge pitched all 16 innings of a game against Syracuse University in 1942 and was selected to The Baltimore Sun's All-State Baseball team in 1941 and 1942. On the basketball court, he played on the Mason-Dixon Conference championship team of 1941 and led the Green Terrors in scoring the following season.



Western Maryland will close out its 1993 season Saturday when it plays host to Centennial Football Conference foe Johns Hopkins.

The Green Terrors (2-6-1) will try to win their second straight CFC contest, and Hopkins will be gunning for a .500 season after falling to 4-5 with a 13-11 loss to Franklin & Marshall last week.

Saturday's game will be the last for senior running back Rob Johnson, who ranks second on the school's all-time rushing list with 3,342 yards. He saved some of his best for last in the win at Swarthmore last week, rushing for 161 yards and scoring on 37- and 57-yard runs on his first two carries.

Sophomore quarterback Brian Van Deusen, who already has set most of the school's single-season passing marks, needs just 225 yards to set a single-season conference mark. The Atholton grad has thrown for 2,095 yards this season, completing 193 of 349 passes.

Cross country


The cross country teams will be competing in the NCAA Division III Mideast Region Championships on Saturday at Allentown College. The region covers teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.
