Saturday was a good day for pools or air-conditioned rooms, not baseball. But the young players of the Gambrills Odenton Recreation Council coach-pitch baseball league braved the heat, the dust and the sun to take part in the league championship in Gambrills.
The Warriors won the championship, beating the Gators 27-23. Earlier in the day, the Warriors also beat the Brewers and the Cardinals. Their season record was 7-1.
Warrior team members are: Logan Bachmann, Christopher Ball, Michael Buckingham, Brandon Johnson Farrell, Garrison Hoe, Alex Holtzclaw, John Perry, Lee Smith, Devon Titus, Travis Radtke and Michael White. The coach is Jack Bachmann.
At Girls State
"I learned more about democracy and government in one week than I had learned in all my years of school," said Crofton teen-ager Angela Huegel, reporting on her experience at Maryland Girls State last week at Washington College in Chestertown.
Sponsored by the American Legion, Girls State presents an opportunity for high school seniors to explore what it means to be an American. Angela and Mary Ramsey, both of Arundel High School, joined hundreds of girls from all over the state in a weeklong adventure.
Angela said she especially enjoyed State Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein, who talked about his career and expressed his love for the state.
At Boys State
Boys State took place a week earlier at Western Maryland College in Westminster.
Aaron Kazer, Aaron Gough, Michael Deafenbaugh, Greg Klinger, Nick Concepcion, Christian Kramer and Seth Rollins, all seniors at Arundel High, were delegates.
They heard talks by Goldstein and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, a Prince George's Democrat.
