Wake Forest freshman Alisha Mosley, twice county basketball Player of the Year from Mount Hebron, has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week.
Mosley, who returns to the area Wednesday when the Demon Deacons play Maryland at 7: 30 p.m. at Cole Field House, earned the honor by scoring 16 points against No. 21 North Carolina State and 15 against sixth-ranked North Carolina last week.
Mosley has played in all of Wake's 22 games, the last four as a starter. Last night, she led the Demon Deacons with 14 points, including three three-pointers, in their 81-58 loss to No. 20 Duke.
Fame induction tomorrow
Here's an opportunity to see history in the making.
The county's first women's athletics Hall of Fame induction and alumnae basketball game, sponsored by Patuxent Publishing Co., will take place at 6 p.m. tomorrow at Oakland Mills High School.
The alumnae basketball game will start the activities. Coaching the 10-player teams will be Centennial girls basketball coach Dave Greenberg and Centennial's Gail Purcell, who coached the Eagles to their only girls basketball state title in 1980-1981 season.
Heading the list of alumnae players is 1982 Mount Hebron graduate Doreatha Beck, the county's all-time leading scorer with 1,676 points. Eleven of the 20 players have scored over 1,000 points in their careers. Another participant will be 1988 Mount Hebron graduate Amy Mallon, who played professionally in Europe and hopes to play in the new Women's National Basketball Association this summer.
The Howard-Oakland Mills girls basketball game will follow at 7: 30 p.m., with the Hall of Fame induction -- six athletes will be named -- taking place at halftime. Admission is $2 for students and $3 for adults and includes both games. Proceeds will be used for a scholarship fund.
Berman named All-South
Wilde Lake junior forward Amanda Berman was named to the All-South first team by the Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer at its annual banquet last week at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie.
Atholton senior Julie Kapcala, The Sun's Howard County Player of the Year who is headed to UCLA, was one of four county players on the All-State first team. The other three were Berman and Caitlin Bair of River Hill and Centennial sophomore Stacie Tokasz.
Seniors Emily Bielefeld of Hammond, Carolyn Flowers of Glenelg, Nyiesha Ford and Michelle Osterberger of Oakland Mills and junior Kathy Gaertner of River Hill made the All-State second team.
Atholton's Kim Obst and Glenelg's Lauren Brown, both seniors, and Wilde Lake junior Bridget White were named honorable mention on the All-State team.
Molinaro headed to China
Lauren Molinaro went to France and Germany in the 10th grade. She traveled to Italy and Denmark last year. All because of her skills as a soccer player.
This year, the Centennial senior will leave March 27 for a 12-day trip to China.
"I think it's going to be cool," said Molinaro, who Wednesday signed a letter of intent to attend and play for the University of Connecticut. "It will be a lot of fun."
Molinaro will travel as a member of her Olympic Development Program (ODP) Region I team.
