Arundel, Annapolis get new coaches


Two new boys winter-sports coaches were announced in Anne Arundel County yesterday.

Sam Golder is the new boys basketball coach at Arundel, and Tom Sfakiyanudis succeeds his former coach, Dave Gehrdes, as the Annapolis wrestling coach.

Golder coached the Arundel JV to a 34-4 mark over the last two seasons and succeeds Hank Kuzma, who coached for one season. Kuzma, the ex-Navy player, is not a teacher and was considered an emergency coach, which necessitated the advertising of the positon.

Sfakiyanudis wrestled for Gehrdes, now Annapolis' athletic director, from 1990 through 1992.

Gehrdes, who gave up coaching boys soccer and wrestling upon becoming athletic director, will coach girls lacrosse next spring.
