Sports and Community Interest B England Goes Pro in Washington Perfect Local Standout Signs with Major League Lax Team

Start for Raiders’ Draheim By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer

Under Sothoron’s wing, however, England was soon molded into a great player. At Ryken, he was taught the fundamentals of the game and learned quickly. “Back then we didn’t have youth league,

The Leonardtown Raiders couldn’t have asked for more from pitcher Hunter Draheim in his first varsity start last Wednesday against Northern High School. Draheim, a junior, gave up just two runs in almost seven innings on the mound as the Raiders beat the visiting Patriots 9-2 for their third straight win of the season. “There can’t be enough said about [Draheim]” said catcher Andrew Burgess. “That’s his first start on varsity and that’s the way to come in, I guess.” “For his first game of the season, I thought he did outstanding,” added head coach Ray Sapp. “I thought he did a real good job of keeping the pitches up and he got ahead most of the time.” Draheim said he felt nervous about his first varsity start, but quickly settled in and played his game. “I had the butterflies at the beginning of the game but once I got going, once I got through the first inning three-up three-down, I just kind of rolled from there,” Draheim said. After striking out the first and third batters in the top of the first inning, Draheim got the Raiders on board with a hard infield single with two outs and the bases loaded, bringing in Kevin Miles from third. Draheim returned to the mound and had a quick three-up, three-down inning in the second. In the third, he

thought I was done, but luckily, one of the goalies had a spare in his car and I was able to continue playing.” Just a few days later, the Bayhawks announced that England and four other players were being added to the roster. “Couldn’t Catch, Couldn’t Throw, Couldn’t Cradle” Before ever touching a lacrosse stick, England was a soccer player, and in the eighth grade, he played on a youth league soccer team for John

Sothoron, Ryken’s varsity boys’ lacrosse coach. Sothoron immediately noticed England’s athleticism and sheer speed. “I coached Jim when he was in first grade,” Sothoron said. “He was a little tiny guy but he was so fast nobody could stay with him.” It was then that England was introduced to lacrosse. “[Sothoron] encouraged me to pick up a stick and thought it was a sport I might enjoy when I got to [Ryken]. I went to a [lacrosse] camp at the University of Maryland during the summer of my eighth grade year.” But for England, who says he was “some-

In the bottom of the inning, the Braves couldn’t make up the deficit, as they continued to struggle offensively. The Cougars had a strong performance on the mound and made a statement early when they struck out Chopticon’s first five batters of the game. Still, the Braves stayed close for the first three innings due in part to strong pitching from Steve Shorter, who was called up from junior varsity to start for Chopticon. Shorter kept the game scoreless until the fourth, when Fallston poured in three runs. Two of those runs were scored when the Cougars hit a shot deep to centerfield and Carl Williams slipped while running after the ball.

Sports Making Moves

England Continued from page B- but Jim was just a good athlete and he picked it up,” Sothoron said. England also had expert coaching from Sothoron, who was an All-American at Towson in the early 70’s. In fact, England is not the first of his Ryken players to make it to the pro level. His son, Reed, currently plays for the MLL’s Denver Outlawz. Prior to that, he played for the San Francisco Dragons and the Rochester Rattlers. England and the Sothoron’s all keep close ties and make a point to get together a much as possible. England, who currently resides in Philadelphia, says he loves coming home to St. Mary’s County in the summer and whenever he can, he’ll get out on the water with his buddies. He also meets the Sothoron’s in Lake Placid every summer at an annual lacrosse tournament, and though John Sothoron doesn’t coach England as much as he used to, he still stands on the sidelines cheering on his protégé. “He’s tough, too, and doesn’t tolerate any less than 100 percent effort,” England said of his old coach and mentor. “ He didn’t just prepare us for college lax though, it was more about the bigger picture and giving it your best in all aspects of life.” England still incorporates the lessons he was taught at Ryken and remains grateful of the opportunities John Sothoron helped provide. “I don’t think SMC would have even recruited me had Coach Sothoron not told them to come give me a look,” England said.

After graduating Ryken in ’95, England went up the road to Saint Mary’s College, where he continued to sharpen his skills. As a midfielder, he scored 54 career goals and had 35 assists on his way to becoming a First Team All-Conference player in the Capital Athletic Conference. Although he was putting up impressive numbers for the Seahawks, England was not totally convinced that he would one day play lacrosse for a living. “There’s not a lot of guys from D III programs in the league,” he said. “Like any pro sport, most of the draft picks are from the top Division I programs. But, I guess I always felt like if I had a chance to tryout, I could surprise some people.” That’s exactly what England did when he was invited to tryout for the Washington Bayhawks - he surprised people. The Bayhawks (formerly of Baltimore) are one of the six original teams in the MLL. A year after winning their second MLL Championship, the Bayhawks lost several players to trades and league expansion and on Nov. 15 of 2006, they announced their move to Washington. Meanwhile, England, who was a member of the supplemental draft pool, was playing in club leagues such as the Mt. Washington Lacrosse Club and MAB Paint. Along with acquiring England, the Bayhawks made other big moves during the off-season, bringing in some of the biggest names in MLL. “We just made a blockbuster trade with the Boston Cannons to acquire Connor Gill and Ryan Curtis; two of the best players in the league,”

England said. “I definitely think we’ll improve over last year’s record (4-8).” Coach Sothoron believes England will be a key addition to the squad. “I think he’ll do very well,” he said. “Jim hasn’t lost a step. He just blows right by people.” “Never Stop Working” And while the Bayhawks still need to work on their fan base, England says the popularity of lacrosse in the area should make MLL games a hot ticket in D.C. “So far the response from the fans I’ve met has been positive,” England said. “Lacrosse is booming in the DC metro area, so hopefully we can take advantage of the larger market that D.C. provides.” England’s excitement about the increased popularity of lacrosse does not stop at the professional level. When he was growing up in Southern Maryland, there weren’t even leagues for him to play in. Today, lacrosse is one of the most popular sports in both private and public schools. “I’m especially glad to see kids playing at a younger age,” England said. “It’s great to see lax being played at the public schools as well.” It may be true that there are 380,000 student athletes in the NCAA and most of them go pro in something other than sports, but that doesn’t mean give up, according to England. “Never stop working,” England says. “Because you never know when opportunity is going to come knocking.”

On Saturday, the Knights will have another challenge when they face St. Stephen’s; a team Sothoron believes is even better than Gonzaga. But playing these tough teams does not scare the Knights, as they thrive on taking on the best teams on the east coast every season, according to Sothoron. “The big boys are coming to town Wednesday and Saturday,” Sothoron said. “But we’re on a roll. We’ve got four wins in a row.”

In the Knowl You Better Ask My Momma’

By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer The NCAA basketball season is over, and as usu-

al, my bracket more or less flopped. I did my research and watched these teams play all season long. I thought I had it figured out. I thought I knew a thing or two about sports. Wrong! I’m starting to think I should have my mother fill this here space with her own words. My mother just racked up 350 spankies for winning her March Madness pool at work, while I sit here scratching my head and wondering why I couldn’t even pick the Final Four correctly. While

I sit around wasting hours watching college basketball analysis on ESPN, reading stats online and simulating the tournament on my Play station 2, my mom spends her free time watching Design on a Dime reruns on HGTV. But my mom doesn’t need ESPN to know sports, or the outcome of sports games. She has something better. She has ESP. That is, Extra-Sensory Perception. I’m serious. This is not a lie. I remember the first time I realized my mother had

Section B - 

ESP. It was October 15, 1997 and my family and I were watching game six of the ALCS between the Baltimore Orioles and the Cleveland Indians. Mussina was pinned up on the mound against the Indians’ Charles Nagy and both were pitching an amazing game. After nine innings, the game was tied at zero and the O’s put Armando Benitez on the mound. If you remember Benitez, you remember a vicious, but unpredictable fastball that either struck a batter out or was sent deep over the left field fence. When Tony Fernandez stepped into the batter’s box to face Benitez in the top of the 11th, my mom, who had not commented on the game all night, said nonchalantly, “Oh, he’s going to hit a homerun.” What happens next? Of course, Fernandez cranks it out of the park

and the Indians are off to the World Series. That was just the beginning. That was when it first came to my attention that my mother had an amazing skill that could make her a fortune. Since then, my mother has forecasted the following unpredictable sports moments: Kobe Bryant scoring 81 points, Zinédine Zidane’s World Cup head-butt, Sammy Sosa’s corked bat incident, George Mason’s astonishing run to the Final Four, the Red Sox coming from three games behind to beat the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS, Floyd Landis’ drug scandal, the Pacers vs. Pistons and Piston fans brawl, the winner of the Little League World Series every year since 1998, and the list goes on and on. How does she predict these amazing moments in

sport? How can she possibly know all these things when she hasn’t watched a game all season long? I’m pretty sure my mom got in a DeLorean, went to the future, bought a Sports Almanac and came back to the present. She has all the answers that you could ever want and need in that book. If you wanna’ know who’s going to win the World Series this year, ask my momma’. You wanna’ know who’ll win the Super Bowl? Ask my momma’. Wanna’ know who will win the NBA Finals? Ask my momma’. Wanna’ know who will win the girls lacrosse SMAC championship. Ask my momma’. Don’t believe a word I’m saying? Ask my momma’.

Automotive Crossover Showdown By: Jesse Stump Contributing Writer In the mid 80’s and early 90’s the minivan was the vehicle of choice for soccer moms everywhere. I remember a time when nearly every driveway on my street contained a minivan in one form or another. Over time these grocerygetters developed a stigma for being “un-hip” and as with all fads began to lose their appeal. Enter the modern day SUV. Yes, the SUV provided parents with the cool factor their Caravans lacked and 4-wheel drive functionality instilled a new sense of safety and adventure. It was a marvelous courtship but it too would not last. Skyrocketing fuel prices and an ever-growing environ-

mental concern began to tug at the SUV’s popularity. Always willing to oblige, automakers introduced the newest trend in family transportation with the smaller and more economical car-based Crossover SUV. Over the past few weeks I had the opportunity to test drive the Mazda CX-7, the Ford Edge, and the Nissan Murano - the following is their head to head comparison.

Walk Around The Murano takes the cake for its edgy yet sophisticated styling. It has a sleek and aerodynamic stance paired with an SUV-like seven inches of ground clearance. Even more impressive is the

fact that the Murano’s exterior has gone essentially untouched since its introduction in 2003. The Edge finishes second thanks to its bold and unconventional look. Ford could have mimicked some of the class’s veterans but chose instead to point the Edge in a more truck-like direction. Ford’s trademark three-bar chrome grille once again make’s an appearance and to be honest it’s starting to grow on me. The CX-7 finishes in the rear mainly for its lack of originality and somewhat bland styling. I couldn’t help but look at the CX-7 as a toned down version of the Murano. Mazda should however take one hint from 2007 Mazda CX-7

its competition and toss some chrome in places where they currently have black plastic.

Interior The Edge gets the nod for having the classiest cabin of the group. It’s not too often that I rave about a Ford’s interior but I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. I am a big fan of the Edge’s panoramic “Vista Roof” and if you’re not, you’re given the option of a rear DVD entertainment system in its place. Rare as it may be, Ford definitely hit the nail on the head this time around. Photo by Jesse Stump The Murano’s interior is put together well but shares a bit too much in common with the previous generation Altima and is frankly a bit dated. Regardless, the Murano’s cabin is comfortable and roomy and the Bose sound system does its job just fine. Nissan’s new Intelligent Key is an appealing feature that I could actu-

ally see getting some use. The CX-7’s interior is nice in its own right but happens to be up against some pretty stiff competition. I was a bit disappointed with the sound system but other than that I have few qualms.

Test Drive Though it was a bit of a toss up, my vote goes to the CX-7 for its impressive mix of handling and acceleration. I was honestly shocked by the amount of low-end torque that this turbocharged 4-cylinder produces. I had seen the specs but until I felt this thing pull without the slightest hint of turbo-lag I didn’t believe them. The 6-speed transmission is smooth and responsive and the CX-7 negotiates sharp corners like a sports sedan. The Murano also provides a great ride but lacks somewhat in low-end acceleration. It posts the fastest numbers in the ¼ mile but the majority of its get-up takes place after 50mph. The Murano handles very well and its push-button

AWD is about as simple to use as it sounds. The Edge is a bit out of its league in a class of vehicles that handle like well proportioned sedans. It’s the heaviest of the three and lacks the car-like feel that makes a cross-over well, a cross-over.

Overall The Nissan Murano gets my vote for being the best all around cross-over SUV on the market. Though it is priced significantly higher than its competition I think in this case it may just be worth those extra hours of overtime. The Mazda CX-7 may not be as well endowed but is probably a better bang for your buck if you can look past its shortcomings. For that reason it finishes a close second. The Ford Edge is by no means a slouch and would be a great pick for someone looking for a cross-over with a more truck-like attitude.

Sports Raiders Continued from page B-

threw two more strikeouts, while the third out came on a hard hit that came right

back to the mound. Draheim stopped the ball with his glove and made the out at first. Later in the game, he was hit in the ankle by a comebacker, which he turned into an out as well. “I always take pride in fielding my position,” Draheim said. “I don’t like balls getting by me and if it’s close, I’m going to go for it and get it.” Burgess jump-started the bottom of the third for Leonardtown with a single up the middle, which was followed by a double from Ryan Dishman. With two runners in scoring position, the Raiders managed an infield single, scoring one. Then, Arthur Hinaman doubled deep to left center and drove in two more runs to put Leonardtown up 4-0. The Raiders had a bit of a scare in the top of the

forth inning, when Northern had the bases loaded with just one out. But Draheim fielded a hard shot that came right back to the mound and turned a 1-6-3 double play to get out of the jam. In the bottom of the fifth, Leonardtown added two runs on a single by Brady Jameson, scoring Draheim and infielder Stephen Katulich. An inning later, the Raiders knocked in another three runs. John Capasso started the bottom of the sixth with a walk, before moving to third on a single from Miles. Burgess got a base hit to load the bases and then Northern’s pitcher walked in a run from third. Up next to bat was Draheim, who cranked a two RBI triple to left field, giving Leonardtown a 9-0 lead. “We had timely hits,” said Draheim. “We hit the ball with

runners in scoring position.” “I saw the ball very well today,” added Burgess, who got on base in every one of his at bat’s. “I just put the bat on the ball and see what happens.” After giving up two runs in the bottoms of the seventh, Hinaman came in for Draheim to finish off the game. “I’m ecstatic,” said Burgess after the game. “I mean, we stepped up immensely, it was crazy. Our pre-game warm-ups we weren’t looking too good, but we stepped up, we pulled together and got the ‘W’.” With a perfect 3-0 record under their belts, the Raiders have high hopes for the rest of the season. “Our goal is a SMAC championship and that was our goal from day one and that’s going to be the goal at

the end of the season,” said Durheim. In order to do that, Leonardtown will have to make sure they continue doing what they’ve done right so far, according to Durheim. “[We need to] keep working hard in practice, keep hitting the ball, keep the game focused, don’t take any team for granted,” he said. “Even if the team hasn’t won a game all year, they can still come out, it’s baseball, they can win any game. Anybody can win any game.”

9 Ways to Create ‘Egg’ceptional Easter Eggs Easter egg coloring is one of the well-known traditions associated with the holiday. Coloring eggs can be fun for children and adults alike. As with many Christian holidays, some of the traditions associated with Easter are rooted in prior Pagan rituals or are influenced by European settlers to North America. Easter is a spring holiday, and spring is synonymous with fertility and new life. Eggs are thus linked to the festivities because of their connection to fertility. What’s more, according to History.com, German settlers in America are said to have brought over the tradition of a bunny named “Oschter Haws” who would visit houses on Easter eve, leaving colored eggs for children. Easter eggs were painted different colors to represent the sunlight of spring. Christians later used eggs to symbolize the rebirth of Christ. For those who will be

incorporating the magic of colored eggs in their festivities this year, there are several ways to adorn the eggs that go above and beyond the traditional coloring kits. Here are a few ideas to consider. 1. The well-known Paas coloring kit still remains a classic favorite, replete with dipping spoons and colored packets. Many companies have put their own spins on the coloring kit to include a brighter array of colors and even stickers and other embellishments. 2. There are shrink-wrap kits that feature plastic rings that shrink into place when the eggs are boiled. The rings are imprinted with an Easter design. 3. You can make your own egg dye with the following recipe: Combine 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of food coloring with 2 teaspoons white vinegar in a cup that can accom-

modate an egg. Add water to about the half-way point. Dip in the eggs with a spoon to color. 4. Tie-dye eggs can be created by wrapping rubber bands around eggs before dipping them into the dye. Remove the rubber bands after the dye has dried and see the designs that have resulted. 5. A similar technique can be achieved by using wax crayons and dye. Color designs onto the egg with the crayons, such as dots, lines or squiggles. When the eggs are dipped in the dye, the crayon will repel the dye and leave the designs in place. Those who don’t want to use dye with very young children can simply color in the eggs with the crayons. 6. ‘Egg’stra special designs can be made by using craft supplies to adorn the eggs. Make cute egg people or animals to display. How about

an Easter bunny complete with cotton ball tail? Scour the craft store for stick-on jiggle eyes, fuzzy noses and more.

duce the heat and simmer the eggs for approximately 10 minutes. Place the boiled eggs in cold water to cool before coloring.

with cold water, covering the eggs. On medium-high heat, bring the water to a boil. Re-

7. You can use regular acrylic paint to brush or sponge on designs. For safety’s sake, don’t eat any eggs that use a dye other than a natural food coloring . 8. Food and beverages can be used to create natural dyes. Boil eggs with beets, spinach, tea, blueberries and more to create the colors desired. 9. Use your imagination and rely on just about anything to make eggs dazzling. Glitter, markers, paints, stickers and so much more can help you to create one-of-akind eggs. Hard-boil know-how Of course eggs need to be hard-boiled before decorating. Place your eggs in a pot filled

Use your imagination to create beautiful Easter eggs.

Microchips Reunite Pets With Their Owners Tri-County Animal Shelter There are many animalrelated lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina. One is the importance of identification for pets. Many people were evacuated to other states. The animals went to shelters and rescue groups that had room for them, and in many instances these were not in the same state, or even the same side of

the country, as their owners. Many owners did not recognize their own pets at shelters or on websites where photographs were posted, because their animals were filthy, had lost weight, or had obtained facial injuries while running at large. Hardly any animals displayed any identification. This made it very hard to reunite pets with their owners. Many communities, in-

cluding St. Mary’s County, require pets to display a county license. This ensures that your pet has current identification and a rabies shot. Pet owners should also consider having their pet micro-chipped. This is a permanent, internal identification system that acts as a backup should your pet’s collar and tags come off. A microchip is a piece of metal, about the size of a

grain of rice, and is injected under the skin in the shoulder area. The microchip contains a number that registers back to the pet owner. Animal shelters and veterinary offices have scanners that can read the chip. All animals that come into a shelter are scanned for a microchip: if the animal has a chip, the scanner acts as a metal detector and beeps. The number for the microchip

is displayed on a screen, and the information can be traced back to the owner. Microchips are valuable tools in helping to reunite lost pets with their owners. Generally, only 2 to 3 percent of cats and 15 to 20 percent of dogs in shelters nationwide are reunited with their owners, because most pets do not have any form of identification. All cats and dogs adopted from

the Tri-County Animal Shelter receive a microchip. The Tri-County Animal Shelter urges you to make an appointment with your veterinarian today to have your pet micro-chipped. It could be what returns your pet to you if you’re separated due to a disaster or something as simple as a gate accidentally left open.
