York (Pa.) Sawyer Leads Gets Past Hornets To Victory Seahawks, Senior’s six free throws in final minute lifts Great Mills 79-73
York, Pa. – The York College men’s basketball team picked up their seventh straight victory with a 79-73 win over St. Mary’s College of Maryland in Capital Athletic Conference play Saturday afternoon as the Spartans swept the regular-season series. The loss drops St. Mary’s to sixth in the conference standings, while York remains atop the league standings. The Spartans (16-6, 11-2 CAC) erased an early 6-0 deficit to gain See York CAC Victory page B-3 By Chris Stevens Staff Writer LEONARDTOWN – The latest chapter in the long and storied rivalry between Leonardtown and Great Mills was written and closed out by the Hornets. Led by senior guard Zack Sawyer’s game-high 16 points, Great Mills continued their lateseason push toward the state tournament, edging the Raiders 54-49 in a hotly-contested game at Leonardtown High Friday night. “We know when we play Leonardtown, it’s going to be a game of spurts,” said Hornets coach Frank Peck. “We can’t overreact when they make a run, we can’t get excited when we make a run.” Winning for the second time in less than two months on Leonardtown’s home court, Great Mills relied on rebounding and defense to thwart Leonardtown, something Raiders coach Jake Heibel noticed from the start. “They killed us on the boards at key times, and they made their foul shots,” an emotionally drained Heibel said. “The team that made the fewest mistakes was going to win the game.” Neither team led by more than eight points, and they were never separated by more than four points from the third quarter on. After expending a ton of energy to keep up with Leonardtown, Sawyer drained a 24foot three pointer from the right wing to give Great Mills its first lead (32-31) with 3:30 left in the third quarter. The Raiders, led by senior center Roy Person’s six thirdquarter points, fought back to take a 38-36 lead into the fourth, where both teams were on the seesaw for the majority of the eight-minute period.

St. Mary’s (Md.) Upends York (Pa.), 74-66
York, Pa. – The St. Mary’s College of Maryland women’s basketball team overcame a 39-31 halftime deficit and had four players in double figures as the Seahawks split the regular-season series with York College garnering a 74-66 triumph Saturday afternoon in Capital Athletic Conference action in Wolf Gym. The win places St. Mary’s (15-7, 8-5 CAC) at third in the conference standings and bumps York down to fourth, helping the Seahawks move closer to having a CAC first round playoff game at home on Tuesday, Feb. 26. In the contest’s first nine minutes, the Spartans (15-7, 7-6 CAC) boasted a 27-12 advantage behind 14 points from senior forward Kristen Daly. Seven points from junior forward Allie Scott helped the Seahawks establish a 19-8 run to pull within 35-31 with 52 seconds left in the half. Daly and junior forward Chanel Perez combined for the half’s last four points to give York a 39-31 lead at intermission. Daly finished the first 20 minutes with 20 points and eight rebounds as she shot 8-of11 from floor and went 3-for-3 at the free throw line. Scott led the Seahawks with nine. St. Mary’s opened up the second half with a 19-7 run to regain the lead for good as senior guard Megan Uglik fired off three straight three-pointers to give the Seahawks a 50-46 margin with 11:35 left in the game. The Spartans mounted a small rally and got within two (57-55) at 7:01 but that was as close as York would get with St. Mary’s flying out to an 11-point lead with 3:26 remaining on a 13-4 run. Scott finished the afternoon with a team-high 20 points and six rebounds, while freshman center Tiara Hurte recorded a double-double on 16 points and a game-high 11 See St. Mary’s Women’s page B-2

Raiders Skate Tough With Severna Park
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer WALDORF – Rob Barthelmes was realistic about his team’s chances against Maryland Scholastic Hockey League powerhouse Severna Park last Wednesday night, not expecting too much but hoping for the best. “I have an extremely young team, and we were happy to walk out of here without a mercy rule,” the Leonardtown ice hockey coach said following the Raiders’ 9-2 loss to the Falcons, one of the top teams in the MSHL’s Eastern Division. By league rule, the game would have been stopped early had the Falcons gotten ahead by a 10-goal margin, which could have happened considering they jumped out to a 90 lead early in the third period.

Adam Zinmeister racked up three assists for Severna Park as well. “They are a very good team, with a lot of travel players,” Barthelmes explained. “We were fortunate to come out here and skate with them. We lost 9-2 and it felt like a win for us.” The Raiders avoided a shut-out early in the third period when Nathan Krevey scored at the 9:54 mark, and Charlie Yates shoved in a rebound four minutes later for his third goal of the season. Gordy Bonnel, the Raiders’ leading scorer with 11 goals, assisted on both Leonardtown goals, bringing his point total to 13 on the season. Playing in place of the usual starting goaltender (Joey Rongione), Kibler had his moments, stopping 26 of 35 shots, more than a few of his saves being of the acrobatic variety. “There’s no reason why he can’t continue to progress,” Barthelmes said, adding that he wanted to get his young goalie some serious ice time. “This is his first year skating, and by the time he’s a senior, I expect him to

Continued from page B- “A couple of my guys decided to take matters into their own hands, and you can’t do that against a team like Gonzaga,” Tallman said after the Purple Eagles (ranked #21 nationally) dismantled the Knights 63-38 in Washington Catholic Athletic Conference action at Ryken High. “If we ever learn to play together as a team, we’ll be tough to beat,” an unhappy Tallman added after a long post-game talk with his team. The game started as if the Knights would uphold Tallman’s message of teamwork, using solid defense and quick ball movement to shrink Gonzaga’s wide lead of 10 to just two late in the first half. However, the first-place Purple Eagles (24-1 overall, 15-1 WCAC) scored six quick points to close the second quarter with a 30-22 lead heading into the locker room. It only got worse for the Knights as they could manage only 16 total second-half points (seven in the third quarter and nine in the fourth). The Knights’ offensive struggles gave Gonzaga total control of a ballgame in which the Purple Eagles would eventually run out to a lead as huge as 27 points in the final sec-

We had a top 20 team in our sights, we were only down two at one point,” Tallman said. “But, it’s hard to win when you’re playing individual basketball. We’re very inconsistent.” Tallman wanted to make a promise to Ryken’s fans, students, staff and alumni that things would be corrected in time for Tuesday’s home finale with St. John’s College Prep, the first game ever broadcast in school history on the internet. “That falls on the coach, and come Monday in practice, I will find five guys to start who are unselfish, will pass the ball and make cuts,” Tallman said. “That is what our fans want to see and that’s what they’ll see Tuesday night.” Ejim led the Knights (12-13 overall, 4-12 in WCAC play) with 13 points while sophoPhoto By Chris Stevens more guard Taevaunn Prince added 11.

Scott Named CAC Playerof-the-Week for the Second Time This Season
North Huntingdon, Pa. – For the second time this season, St. Mary’s Seahawks own Allie Scott has been named the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Women’s Basketball Player-of-the-Week as Scott picked up the honor for the week ending Feb. 11. Scott’s first CAC weekly honor of the 2007-08 season came Dec. 17 when she shared the honor with Marymount University’s Kathleen Brown. This week’s win marks the fifth time in her career that Scott has earned a conference player-of-the-week citation in threeyears as a Seahawk. The 5-10, junior forward helped St. Mary’s post a 2-0 week with a pair of road conference wins over Hood College and York College to move the Seahawks to third in the league standings, putting SMCM on track to host a first-round playoff game Feb. 26 for the first time since the 2004-05 campaign. The Atholton High School product started the week with 16 points and six rebounds in a 71-54 victory at Hood. She then followed that up with 20 points and six boards in a key triumph at York as St. Mary’s recorded a 74-66 win. For the week, she averaged 18.0 points and six caroms in two games. Scott is second on the team in both scoring and rebounding with averages of 15.9 and 7.6, respectively. She is currently ranked fifth in the CAC in scoring, seventh in blocks (0.86 bpg), tied for ninth in steals (1.77 spg), 10th in rebounding, 11th in field goal percentage (.461), and 14th in free throw percentage (.649).

Hornets Hoops
Continued from page B- After Leonardtown forward Eric Chase swished a triple to give the Raiders a fourpoint lead halfway through the fourth, the Hornets clawed back to take the lead. Antonis Moye stole an inbound pass and made a lay-up and a free throw to shrink the lead to one. On the next Hornet possession, Johnny Dickerson floated a shot off the glass to give Great Mills a 48-47 lead with 2:35 remaining in the game. The Raiders took their last lead with 56.4 seconds left when guard Tyre Herbert drew the fifth foul on Great Mills forward Andre Butler and sank both free throws to put Leonardtown ahead 49-48. Sawyer then was fouled by Moe Stone and made the go-ahead foul shots with 46.2 seconds to go. After the Raiders missed a few shots going for the lead, Sawyer made two more and sealed the deal by intercepting Jeff Wettingel’s inbounds pass with 4.8 seconds left.

Zack Sawyer’s 16 points led Great Mills to a key victory Friday night.

The senior calmly stepped to the line and made his sixth straight foul shot in 41 seconds, amongst a din of noisy Raider fans trying to throw him off. “That was huge,” Peck said of Sawyer’s cool under fire in the final minute. “That’s what you expect of your seniors. Zack had four fouls, but we wanted him in there shooting the free throws.” “Coach has us run and take free throws when we’re tired,” Sawyer said. “It really helped out a lot tonight.” Moe Stone led Leonardtown (11-8 overall, 6-6 SMAC) with 13 points while Eric Chase added 11. Butler was second on the Hornets in scoring with 13 points before fouling out. With just two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Hornets (10-7 overall, 6-5 SMAC) have won five straight and seem to be hitting their stride after a slow start – a start Peck attributes to learning and growing on the run. “We knew that we were going to have to create an identity for ourselves, and you put yourself in a tough spot when you do that,” he explained. “But it didn’t damage our season, so we hope to continue in the playoffs and make some noise.” Heibel said he told his players “to cry, be angry and get it out of your system.” “We still have a lot of basketball to play, we’ve got to put this game behind us and move forward.”

Raiders-Hornets Season Summary
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer Usually, fans, staff, students and alumni only get two chances per season to see Great Mills and Leonardtown duel for boys’ basketball supremacy. However, thanks to the Four Star Pizza Holiday Tournament this past December, the Raiders and Hornets had one extra battle on the schedule, and all three games lived up to the billing of the two most closely matched and associated high schools in St Mary’s County. Everything from fourth quarter comebacks to dueling cheers and cheerleaders was on display this year. The high stakes in this rivalry might not always be a SMAC championship, but the County championship will do as far as these two rivals are concerned. The three games in which these teams met were worthy of a look back as they will go their separate ways and battle for post-season supremacy in the 3A and 4A regions of the Maryland State Tournament.

York CAC Victory
Continued from page B- control of the first half. York led by no more than eight in the first 20 minutes as the Seahawks were within two points on several occasions, including 37-35 at 2:37. York went on to post a 40-35 halftime advantage. Senior guard Levi Winters paced everyone at the half with 13 points, while senior guard Tyson Lesesne led the Seahawks with seven. St. Mary’s was plagued by 22 turnovers (11 in each half) to the Spartans’ 12. However, the Seahawks outrebounded YCP, 47-38, behind a season-high 11 boards from freshman forward Mike Bowden. A three-pointer by senior forward T.J. Jordan gave the Seahawks a 69-66 advantage with 3:10 remaining in the contest. However, an 11-2 run by York allowed the Spartans to regain the lead at 77-71 with 18 seconds on the clock as senior forward Chad McGowan netted seven in the run. McGowan went on to finish with a double-double on game-highs of 26 points and 12 rebounds, while also dishing out four assists. Winters contributed 20 on the day, while sophomore guard Nick Brady added 11 and seven boards. The Seahawks were unable to notch a win despite having four players in double figures. Lesesne and junior forward Calvin Wise each had 16 points, while freshman guard Alex Franz chipped in 10. Lesesne and Franz each handed out five assists, while Wise and Franz grabbed six and five caroms, respectively. Junior center Alex Irmer was one rebound shy of a double-double with 10 points and nine boards. Special to the County Times, From the St. Mary’s College Sports Information Department

Great Mills 46, Leonardtown 32
Taking a few pages from the Raider playbook, Frank Peck and his Hornets got revenge by outlasting Leonardtown on their home court with intensity on the boards and using the clock to their advantage on offense. The Hornets held a double-digit lead late when Peck ordered his troops to spread the floor and hold on the ball, a successful tactic that kept their lead intact and gave them the win. Peck was pleased with the game plan his Hornets carried out, while Heibel was disappointed in his team’s effort.

Round 3: Friday night, Leonardtown High School Great Mills 54, Leonardtown 49
This game saw everything expected in a rivalry rallies, runs and both coaches showing their exasperation or approval towards the execution of their game plans. With a four-game winning streak on the line and several hundred Raider fans threatening him with temporary hearing loss, senior point guard Zack Sawyer went a perfect six-for-six from the free throw line in the final 46 seconds of play to give the Hornets a 2-1 series win, along with boosting their positioning in the 3A region, which would have them hosting a first round game as of Friday night’s result. The emotional game took a toll on both sides, but Sawyer, just as calm as he was at the free throw line, explained, “This is [the Great Mills seniors] last time playing Leonardtown, we had to beat them. We didn’t have a choice.”

Round 1: Dec. 14, 2007, Great Mills High School Leonardtown 50, Great Mills 47
It was a close call, but the Raiders’ 19 point fourth quarter lead was enough to keep the Hornets from completing an unbelievable rally and stealing the victory. The atmosphere in the gym was electric. Jake Heibel was voiceless after it all, managing to say that he was proud of his kids and how hard they worked for the win. The win was Heibel’s first against the Hornets since he took over as Raiders coach in 2004. Heibel had coached at Great Mills for 12 years before moving to Leonardtown.

Two Award-Winning Documentary Films By St. Mary’s College Professor
St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM) will screen award-winning independent documentary filmmaker and St. Mary’s College assistant professor David Ellsworth’s Time, and the River and Husks on Monday, Feb. 18, at 8 p.m. in Cole Cinema at the Campus Center. Ellsworth’s documentary is the third of five films that are part of the Theatre, Film, and Media Studies’ experimental film series. This series is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Mark Rhoda at or 240-895-4231. Working in a variety of formats, Ellsworth began filmmaking in 1996 with his 2.5 minute, Super-8mm Ice. The experimental film played internationally and on MTV as a music video for the Chicago band Tortoise. His work has screened and won awards at festivals internationally, including New York City, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Havana, Paris, and Tokyo. Husks (2002), which will screen with Time, and the River (2004), is an experimental portrait of rural Iowa life that explores past and present visions of how people and the rural landscape interact. The film includes a mix of 16mm and optically printed Super-8 film. Time, and the River, a documentary about people living in boat houses on the Mississippi River near Winona, Minnesota, “is at once deceptively simple, yet artistically complex,” said critic George Lellis. “Ellsworth prizes simplicity—the simplicity of nature, simplicity of living, the simSee SMCM Screening page B-5

Women Sailing Champions Star In MPT Outdoor Maryland Segment
St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s InterCollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Women’s National Champions will take another star turn, this time in a Maryland Public Television broadcast on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. “Outdoors Maryland” will air “The Sails of St. Mary’s” as its first piece that evening. Five St. Mary’s College of Maryland women sailed on the featured team last spring: Adrienne Patterson (’08, Newport Beach, Calif.), Melissa Pumphrey (’07, Annapolis, Md.), Jennifer Chamberlain (’09, Alexandria, Va.), Sarah Morgan Watters (’10, Oxford, Md.) and Mattie Farrar (’08, Blaine, Wash.). Patterson was selected Female College Sailor of the Year. Pumphrey was not only named All American Crew, but was the College’s 2007 valedictorian. Morgan was selected as a Women’s All American. “As a coach, I liked the idea of putting that extra little edge on the players that the TV camera and microphones provided. I think it helped us deal with the intensity of national championship competition,” said College Sailing Coach Adam Werblow. The women’s victory occurred after the spring semester ended and was celebrated at the College in early October 2007. In January, the victorious St. Mary’s College sailors were recognized at the State House in Annapolis with “House Resolution” certificates presented by Maryland Speaker of the House Mike Busch and Delegate John Bohanan. Coaches Werblow and Bill Ward and College President Jane Margaret O’Brien were also there as the College’s sailors were cited for “exemplary performance” in their championship victory at the 2007 ICSA National.” The Outdoors Maryland segment on the women’s team promises to bring the thrill of their performance to life for viewers across the state.

Her first lecture was based on her book, Failing America’s Faithful: How Today’s Churches Are Mixing God with Politics and Losing Their Way, which was published in 2007. Her second lecture focused on the role of women in politics, and her belief that this is the “breakthrough century for women.” Anticipating her forthcoming talk on the evening after Maryland’s presidential primary, Taber said, “I am interested to hear her reflection on the recent media attention about the endorsements of Obama by some of the Kennedy family. What does it mean for us in this day and age for a

Does this tell us more about the present-day candidate, or about our views of the past?” Each year, the College invites an accomplished writer, journalist, or other professional figure to be the Nitze Senior Fellow and to make several visits to the campus.

Critter Corner
Home Enrichment For Your Indoor Cat
If you’d like to reward your well-behaved indoor kitty, prevent future behavior problems, and basically just have a healthier, happier cat, the Tri-County Animal Shelter would like to offer some tips to provide regular mental and physical stimulation, and keep him out of trouble. To help avoid inappropriate elimination problems, keep a tidy kitty bathroom by scooping the litter box at least once every day, and providing more than one box if you have more than one cat. You should provide scratching posts, preferably with rope or wood materials, and place them near your cat’s favorite resting place or near a window. Also place one near an object they like to scratch but shouldn’t, like your couch. Since cats are creatures of habit, and mealtime is a high point of the day, feed your cat at the same time every day. Also, provide a constant supply of fresh drinking water daily. Most cats like treats, but when giving food treats, you should reduce their daily meal a bit to cut down on extra calories. Many cats like chewing on cat grass. This is easy to grow, and cuts down on hairballs. Catnip can also be given as a treat, though not every cat responds to it. Cats are social animals and love interacting with people. Spend time with your cat, and ask someone to visit your cat if you go away for a few days. Cats, like people, need regular exercise. Playtime gives them mental stimulation, lets them practice their stalking behavior, and lets you bond with your cat. Allow your cat a safe place to retreat to when you have company (especially with small children) or if a noisy contractor or repairman pays a visit. Consider giving your cat a taste of the outdoors. Install a bird feeder outside a window and provide a window perch where your cat can sit and watch. Let your cat explore the outdoors by building an enclosure or walking them on a harness and leash, which is much more secure than a collar and leash. Open the window blinds and let your cat snooze in a warm patch of sunshine on your floor. It doesn’t take much to keep our cats happy. For all that they give to us, isn’t this the least we can do for them?

After entering the home, the suspect reportedly stole money from the residence. The suspect is described as a white, male with short dark hair (crew cut) wearing dark pants white and green plaid

shirt. The sheriff’s office is asking the public to be on the lookout for this suspect and immediately report suspicious activity of this or similar nature.

Treat Your Sweetie to Brunch
Who hasn’t looked for a way to express love to someone special on Valentine’s Day or another special occasion? Having an easy but tasty recipe on hand to whip up for your loved one can show how much you care. Stage a Valentine-worthy brunch for your sweetheart, complete with his or her favorite foods. Strawberries covered in fresh cream, bite-sized muffins and these Ham & Cheddar Scones, courtesy of “The Culinary Institute of America: Breakfasts & Brunches” (LebharFriedman Books) will certainly impress. These portable treats pack the rich flavor of ham with the universal appeal of warm, melted cheese. Make the dough a day early and just pop it in the oven to surprise your sweetie. 1. Cut two 10-inch circles of parchment paper. Use one to line a 10-inch round cake pan. Reserve the second piece. 2. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together into a mixing bowl. Add the ham, cheese, and scallions and toss together with the dry ingredients until evenly distributed. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. 3. Add the cream to the flour mixture and stir by hand just until the batter is evenly moistened. 4. Place the dough in the lined cake pan and press into an even layer. Cover the dough with the second parchment paper circle. Freeze the dough until very firm, at least 2 hours. 5. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with cooking spray or lining with parchment paper. 6. Thaw the dough for 5 minutes at room temperature; turn it out of the cake pan onto a cutting board. Cut the dough into 10 equal wedges and place the individual wedges on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. 7. Bake the scones until golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool the scones on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to cooling racks. Serve scones warm or at room temperature. Serve baked scones the same day they are made or freeze for up to 4 weeks.

Did You Know?
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, men are likely to spend almost twice as much as women when it comes to gifts for their special someone. A 2007 survey released by the National Retail Foundation indicated that men were planning to spend an average of $156 on Valentine’s Day, while women were planning on spending $85. Not surprisingly, flowers remain the most popular gift men plan to give women, with nearly 60 percent of male survey participants indicating they were going to be giving flowers. As far as gifts go, cards were a close second on the list of most popular gifts, while a night out on the town and candy rounded out the top four. With so much spending by both men and women, it’s no great surprise that spending on Valentine’s Day typically exceeds $15 billion annually.
