Princeton's Samaras wins Ivy honors

Cristi Samaras (Annapolis) continued what has become a Princeton habit -- winning the Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week salute in women's lacrosse.

A Princeton player has won the honor four straight weeks. Samaras, a sophomore attack, scored 10 goals in wins over Penn and Yale to raise her points total to 52 (32 goals, 20 assists), high in the Ivy.


Another Annapolis grad, Cornell junior Lauren Feinstein, had three goals in each of the first four games, raising her career total to five. She is second on the team in points with 17.

Junior Jon Cusson (Loyola) is Penn's second-leading scorer with 17 goals and 26 assists. . . . Senior JoAnn Binko (Perry Hall) leads Ithaca with 22 goals and 13 assists. . . . Senior Julie Martin (Garrison Forest) had three goals and four assists in Dickinson's win over Washington to increase her points total to 28, second highest on the team.


In James Madison's 8-3 loss to No. 1 Maryland in which the Terps were held to their lowest score of the season, Dukes goalie Meg Cortezi (Notre Dame Prep) equaled her season high with 18 saves and freshman Megan Riley (South River) scored two of the three goals.

In the Atlantic Coast Conference track and field championships last weekend at College Park, Virginia freshman Sean Sullivan (McDonogh) placed second in the men's decathlon and made the All-ACC team.

The efforts of Baltimore products went for naught in Mary Washington's 16-12 loss to Goucher. Dabney Boye (Severn) scored five goals and Charlotte Cockrell (Glenelg) had two while Inga Fredland (Annapolis) and Jen Wassif (Severn) each contributed two assists and Melissa Ballance (Severna Park) added one.


After earning 12 letters at McDonogh in lacrosse, basketball and soccer, Sarah Hill turned to squash and has helped Bowdoin to a No. 10 national ranking for two straight seasons from her No. 9 position. . . . Gregg Kessler (Owings Mills) was named Rider's Athlete of the Month after winning the 126-pound title at the East Coast Wrestling Association Championships. . . . Reed Cordish (Gilman) has a 13-match winning streak, solidifying his ranking as the No. 1 tennis player in the East in NCAA Division I. . . .

Larry Marino (Calvert Hall), Wake Forest's No. 3 hitter (.310), went 7-for-12 in a two-game series against nationally ranked Florida State. . .
