Seahawks Fall Season Heats Up By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer The fall sports season at Saint Mary’s College is heating up. Here is a team-by-team look at what the Seahawks have been up to since August.

Cougars Win On the Road, 5-3 By Andrew Knowlton Staff Writer Thomas Stone’s girl’s soccer team scored three first half goals and added two in the second half to defeat Great Mills Monday night. But a hat-trick performance by Hornet senior captain Alex Baker sparked Great Mills during the second half, boosting the team’s confidence and proving that they can play with any team in the league. Baker says the team has evolved since the beginning of the season. “We went from losing to Leonardtown 10-0 and having no composure to playing like a team and playing more thoughtful soccer,” she said. Great Mills played Stone very evenly in the second half, matching their two goals and applying more pressure on the Cougars than they did in the first half. “I wonder, if we played the first half like we did in the second, if it would have been a different outcome,” Great Mills Head Coach

Volleyball: The Seahawk’s volleyball team has been on a tear this fall season. The squad has only lost twice in 20 matches and is in first place in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) with a perfect 3-0 record. Salisbury is close behind the ‘Hawks in conference standings with a 3-0 CAC record and an 18-5 season record. Most recently, the Seahawks swept a quad match they hosted on Saturday. SMC went 3-0, defeating Bryn Mawr, Mount St. Mary’s (N.Y.) and Goucher, all by a score of 3-0. Over those three matches, Saint Mary’s served up 45 aces, and setters Jenn Feldmann and Megan Graydon combined for 93 assists. The sweep in the quad match extended the ‘Hawks winning streak to five matches. Their last loss was Sept. 22 against Franklin & Marshall. The team’s longest streak this year was a seven match winning stretch that spanned from Sept. 1222. On Wednesday, the Seahawk’s hosted Wesley College in CAC action. Results from that match were unavailable when the County Times went to press. Following that match, SMC has a week break. They will play again Oct. 11 against Trinity (D.C.). Men’s Soccer: The men’s soc-

cer team is back on track with two consecutive wins, snapping a four game losing streak. The Seahawk’s latest win was a 3-1 victory over Hood College. Saturday afternoon, SMC recorded a 1-0 shutout over Villa Julie College on the road. On Sept. 26, SMC had a 4-1 win against Bridgewater (Va.). At 4-6 on the season and 2-2 in the conference, the ‘Hawks are in sixth place in the CAC. The Seahawks looked strong in the in over Hood, taking a 1-0 halftime lead thanks to a header by senior defender Mike Rohrs. Sophomore forward Chad Henry and senior forward Cyrus Albertson increased the lead to 3-0 in the second half. SMC out-shot the Blazers 35-11 throughout the game. The ‘Hawks returned to action Monday in a game against Hood College. Following a road game against York next Saturday, SMC has a three game home stretch. Field Hockey: The SMC field hockey has been tough to beat at home this season. Currently, the ‘Hawks are on a 10 game win streak in contests played in St. Mary’s City. On Saturday, the Seahawks defeated York College 2-0 to improve their record to 7-2 on the season and 4-1 in the conference. They haven’t lost since Sept. 17, when they suffered a 1-0 overtime setback against Lynchburg College. Against York Saturday, senior forward Marianne Wood scored SMC’s first goal at the 15:38 mark. The Seahawk’s out-shot York 7-1 in the first half. In the second See SMC Fall Sports page B-

Amy Herndon said. In the first half, Stone’s offense came out firing. The Cougars had a couple shots on goal and corner kick opportunities in the opening minutes, and 11 minutes into the first half, forward Sam Ondrejak, who also recorded a hat trick, scored on a long floater that Hornet keeper Shannon Barr managed to get just her fingertips on. Not long after that, Stone’s Katrina Saudy booted a long free kick into the right corner of the net from about 30 yards out to make it a 2-0 game. Barr made a couple great saves following that goal, but the Cougar’s offense continued to push, and forward Ashley Randall tapped in a goal, when a save by Barr came loose right in front of the net. “It was all about being in the right place at the right time,” said Thomas Stone Head Coach Andrew Prozig. Great Mills began to find its rhythm late in the second half, and See Cougars Soccer page B-

Wood Selected as CAC Field Hockey Player of the Week St. Mary’s City, Md. – Marianne Wood (Wakefield, Mass./Wakefield Memorial) becomes the second St. Mary’s College of Maryland field hockey player to be named the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Field Hockey Player of the Week as Wood earned the honor for the week ending September 30. The other Seahawk to have picked up the honor is junior forward Emily Norris (Timonium, Md./Dulaney) who garnered the citation for the week ending September 16. In a pair of games this past week, the forward notched two goals and an assist in leading the Seahawks to victories over McDaniel College and conference foe, York (Pa.) College. Wood started off the week by giving St. Mary’s a 2-0 lead with her fifth goal of the season as the Hawks went on to hand McDaniel a 4-0 setback. She followed that up with a goal and an assist in the Seahawks’ 2-0 shutSee Player of the Week page B-

Cougars Soccer Continued from page B- sophomore forward Nelka Caceres-Rivera had a great shot on goal, but Stone’s keeper made an equally great save. But with 4:30 to go, Caceres-Rivera got the ball again, and this time crossed it to Baker, who stopped 20 yards from the goal, spotted up, and blasted it into the left corner of the net. Though the Baker’s late first half goal brought life to the Hornets, Stone still managed to break through the Great Mills defense and score again with 25:00 to play in the game, making it 4-1. “When [Great Mills] scored at the end of the first half, we knew the next goal was going to be very important,” said Prozig. About five minutes later, Stone extended its lead to four goals, but the Hornets still didn’t give up. Herndon attributes much of her team’s resiliency to Baker’s hard work on the field. “Her hustle inspires everyone to never give up,” Herndon said. “No matter what the score is.” Down by four, freshman midfielder Hope Ironmonger found Baker on a corner kick pass. Baker headed the ball into the top of the net for her second goal. She originally created the corner kick opportunity by firing a long shot off the gloves of Stone’s keeper. With 7:35 remaining in the game, Baker broke free, chasing a long pass and facing no Cougar defenders except for the keeper. The goalkeeper sprinted at Baker, trying to take the ball from her feet, but Baker lobbed it just over the keeper and into the net. Unfortunately for the Hornets, who were coming on strong late in the game, the final whistle was blown just minutes later. According to Baker, the way the team played in the second half proves that the young squad is on the right path. “We have a lot of new people on the team and before, the new players were afraid to talk with the older players, but we’re moving that hurdle now,” she said. “We want more wins, and we know we can do it. We know we can put two halves together A group of Thomas Stone defenders swarm Great Mills senior midfielder Amy Hofmeister during their 5-3 win. and pull it out.”

Hawk’s Defeat Frederick, 4-2 September 25, 2007 - On a warm, sunny fall afternoon, the CSM women’s soccer team defeated Frederick 4-2. Alison Pancotti had a hand in all four Hawk goals, scoring twice and assisting on the other two Hawk goals. CSM dominated play for most of the game, pressing the attack into the Frederick end, outshooting the Cougars 16-4 in the first half, and 28-5 for the game. Some brilliant goalkeeping by Cougar goalkeeper Mary Leatherman kept Frederick in the game, as she made several outstanding saves to keep the game scoreless for the first 30:00 of the game. Allison Pancotti finally broke the scoring drought, hitting a perfectly placed high arching shot over Leatherman from 10 feet out, after Ashley Simone’s corner kick, to put CSM

Writing this weekly column has been one of the most enjoyable and also difficult jobs I’ve had here at the County Times. Thinking of a different idea to fill this space with each week can sometimes be extremely tough, and other times, it can be extremely easy. This week was one of the easy ones. I am writing to say farewell and thank you to everyone who has made this year in St. Mary’s County a truly amazing and unforgettable experience. When I moved here almost a year ago from Silver Spring, I didn’t know a single person. It was an adventure. Now, I’ve decided to take on new challenges and move on. Another adventure awaits. I have truly enjoyed covering sports here in St. Mary’s County. And what a year it’s been! I’ve had the opportunity to witness several teams from the area win county, regional, conference and even a state championship. I’ve seen teams make history, like when Leonardtown won the girl’s state soccer championship, or

when Ryken’s boy’s lacrosse team took down DeMatha to win its first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title. Through some of the events I’ve covered, such as the Motocross of Nations last week, the skateboard tournament in Lexington Park about a month ago, and sailing events at St. Mary’s College I’ve been able to learn a lot about sports that I didn’t know much about before. Not only are the sports teams fantastic and exciting to watch, but also the athletes, coaches, fans and families couldn’t have been any more of a pleasure to work with. From day one, everyone has been so kind and welcoming. From the high school teams, to slow-pitch softball teams, to little league sports, to Saint Mary’s College, to club teams, everyone I’ve come across has been great. You’ve all made me feel like I’ve been a resident of St. Mary’s County my entire life. I’ve always held the belief sports can bring out the best in people, and this year at the County Times really just proved that to be true. Along with the great people of St. Mary’s County,

They have lost their last four games, falling to No. 18 Johns Hopkins 4-0, Elizabethtown 31, Villa Julie College 3-1, and Washington & Lee 2-0. Fortunately, the Seahawk’s won their three games before that, taking down Hood College, Gallaudet, and Methodist. They hold a record of 4-7-0 overall and 2-1-0 in the conference. The Seahawks have a chance to bounce back and end their losing streak Oct. 3 as they face Mary Washington in a CAC contest. Despite losing the last four, SMC is still in the mix. Only three teams (Salisbury, York and Mary Washington) have better records in the CAC.

CSM went up 3-0 with 11:22 left in the half as Pancotti’s long centering pass from the side found Melinda Carty open in front of the left post, and Carty booted the ball home. Frederick (3-3, 0-2) got on the scoreboard with 8:21 to play, when Katie Seiforth scored after receiving a centering pass from Becky Spates, to make the score 3-1 at the half. CSM (5-2, 3-1) would have several scoring chances in the second half, but could only net one goal. Ashley Simone found net with 32:51 to play after receiving a crossing pass from Alison Pancotti, to give CSM a 4-1 lead. Ashley Polvi-Cross scored for the Cougars after receiving a pass from Katie Seiforth for the final 4-2 margin.

I’ve met some other wonderful people thanks to this job, including sportswriter and columnist Washington Post Tony Kornheiser and several University of Maryland basketball players (Landon Milbourne and Greivis Vasquez) whom are likely to go professional. I also got to interview a local football player, Terry Cauley, who was signed by the Washington Redskins. All in all, it has just been a great year for me here, and once again, I’d like to thank everyone who made it possible. I wish all the student athletes, fans, coaches, and parents that I’ve met the best of luck in their future endeavors. Wherever the road decides to take me next, one thing is certain, I’ll always have a little bit of St. Mary’s County in me. Thank you and so long, Andrew

Seasonal Trails Through Southern Maryland October Outings and Winter Holiday Ideas With the approach of autumn, local residents and visitors to the area begin to seek hayrides, corn mazes and pumpkin patches. In support of the season, October is declared “Trails Month” in Southern Maryland celebrating the farms, original arts and local hospitality of the area. Throughout the season special demonstrations, exhibits, shows, and more will be held across the region. Partner sites can be found through the “Southern Maryland Trails – Earth, Art and Imagination”, a comprehensive guide, featuring four scenic trails through Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties. The guidebook lists trail sites in sequence making it easy to plan outings that include a series of sites within the same area. Each route is plotted to expose travelers to the area’s most beautiful views and scenic roads. The information can be accessed by going to or through guidebooks distributed across Southern Maryland (locations listed below). The trails effort is one of the many programs of the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission ( aimed at supporting the local rural economy and raising awareness of the richness and diversity of the region. “Whether it is wine tasting, climbing aboard a skipjack or touring a gallery, the Southern Maryland area offers something for everyone to appreciate and enjoy”, said Christine Bergmark, executive director. “Our trails effort is intended to encourage residents and visitors alike to explore Southern Maryland’s natural culture and heritage and discover the myriad of authentic experiences unique to this area.” In early November, the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission, will be releasing the “Farms for the Holidays 2007” brochure.

Maggie O’Brien, president of the College, said, “In the early stages of our planning for the Center, long before the first sponsored lecture or event that marks the Center’s activities today, Professor Cain was enthusiastically writing funding proposals that made possible the Center’s first five years. He’s been the most important secret asset in the mix: in fact, the Center might still be on the drawing board were it not for Professor Cain’s early enthusiasm and commitment. I’m particularly delighted that he will bring us much experience from his international work with U.S. Agency for International Development.” Cain received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Rutgers University and his Ph.D. in government and politics from the University of Maryland.

7 Ways to Adorn the Home With Autumn Color The beauty of autumn hues is perhaps only surpassed by the the grandeur of holiday lights and trimmings. But before you get set to deck your house in Christmas flair, transform it into an autumnal wonder in time for the month of November and your Thanksgiving feast. 1. Borrowing from the shades of nature is one of the easiest ways to transform interior and exterior into beautiful fall scapes. Take advantage of hardy mums in bold yellows, russets, and oranges to give flowerbeds a fall feel. Put a bunch of burgundy dahlias into a vase and surround it with fresh pears and pomegranates for an easy table centerpiece. 2. Reclaim your youth and get the kids involved in a fun project that can be used to display some fall foliage. Gather good specimens of fallen

leaves in bright autumn colors. Place a few leaves between two pieces of waxed paper and seal together with an iron set to a low temperature. Frame the artwork and display. 3. Wreaths aren’t just for the winter holidays. Wind evergreen boughs around a grapevine wreath and dot with small gourds and faux or real garlands of leaves. Hang on the front door or over the fireplace. 4. Autumn often evokes visions of forests and woodland retreats. Transform any home into a “cozy cabin” by mimicking some of the design styles. Place a checkered tablecloth on the kitchen or dining room table. Wooden ducks or bowls full of pine cones can add some country charm. Rustic wood accents from picture frames to gathered twigs placed in a vase also add to the

Michael Cain Continued from page B- organize professors in Maryland to serve as election judges in the state. He provided expert testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee in the Maryland House of Delegates on the administration of elections earlier this year. For over six years Cain served as a senior policy adviser to the U. S. Agency for International Development, providing technical advice to new democracies in Central Europe and Eurasia, including the states of Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Poland and Kazakhstan. He received fellowships from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies. During the past five years, Cain has been a frequent contributor to Center events. Since the founding of the Center in 2001, Cain has been deeply involved in securing external funding. He wrote the first external grant award received by the Center in 2002 from the Library of Congress Open World Leadership program. Cain was a principal author for the $500,000 National Endowment for the Humanities “We the People” challenge grant received by the Center in 2004. He has also helped develop the new “Democracy Studies” program at the College. “The Center for the Study of Democracy is an important part of Maryland’s political landscape,” said Cain. “It has made a real difference in educating people about political issues and their significance in our lives. I intend to continue the Center’s broad political engagement of students while encouraging the wider Maryland community to discuss pressing political issues facing our

appeal. 5. Even if you haven’t fired up your fireplace for the season, make sure it’s a focal point of the room. Place fall-colored candles right in the hearth and drape garland on the mantle. 6. Use gourds, fruit, and vegetables. Fresh fruit and seasonal items add easy color outdoors or inside. Orange pumpkins, speckled gourds, Indian corn, and even yellow squash can quickly put spots of color where you need it. Using fruit and vegetables is an inexpensive way to add impact to decor and centerpieces. 7. Spend a day gathering acorns and pine cones with the kids. Tie a ribbon onto the stems or one of the cone shoots and attach to a cardboard tag. Use these seasonal picks for place cards at your Thanksgiving table.

Are you considering adding a pet to your family? Pets can be a wonderful addition to the family, but they are also a big responsibility. You need to be realistic about the time and financial commitment involved. You should also be clear about the reasons you want a pet, and who in the family will be responsible for the care and health of the pet. Keep in mind that the dog or cat you adopt today may be with you for the next ten to twenty years!

Ask yourself how your pet would fit in if any of the following events were to occur in your home during the pet’s lifetime: • Marriage/Divorce • Pregnancy/new baby • Moving • Change in work status (family member gets a job or retires) • Change in work hours (longer hours, change in start time, more responsibility) • Limited free time • Financial concerns • Children leaving or moving back home • Care-taking responsibilities for elderly or ill family member • Other pets already in the home • Someone in the family with pet allergies. If these events have occurred within the past six months, or may occur within the next six months, you may want to postpone getting a pet until the dust settles. Should you decide that you are ready to add a pet to your family, please visit the Tri-County Animal Shelter. We have many wonderful animals just waiting for a great home.

Tailgating a Time Honored Football Tradition Over the years, football has gradually overcome baseball as America’s most-watched sport. Though baseball is still known as “America’s pastime,” football has become an integral part of many a family’s fall and winter weekends. Be it high school football under the lights on Friday nights or Saturday afternoons spent watching the alma mater take on a rival college or Sundays spent watching game after game after game, football is arguably the country’s sport of choice for the 21st Century. Perhaps more synonymous with football than even the pigskin itself is tailgating. Fans attending games love gathering in the parking lot both before and after the big game and sharing good food. Even if you’re not heading to the nearest stadium, football parties have become increasingly popular over the years, with food playing a big part in that popularity. Sports fan and award-winning food writer Debbie Moose is no stranger to this trend, as her new book “Fan Fare” (Harvard Common Press) offers both classic and innovative recipes for sporting cuisine, such as the following recipe for “Carolina Champions Shrimp Bowl.”

Carolina Champions Shrimp Bowl Serves 6 3 lemons, each cut in half 1 package crab boil-in-a-bag 2 pounds small red or new potatoes, unpeeled 1 medium-size yellow onion 3 large cloves garlic, crushed 3 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce 3 large or 4 small ears fresh corn, shucked and cleaned 11⁄2 pounds medium-size shrimp - melted butter, seafood cocktail sauce

1. Add the lemon halves and crab boil-in-a-bag to a large pot of water and bring to a boil. The pot needs to be big enough to hold all the ingredients, which you will add in stages; don’t overfill with water. 2. Cut the potatoes into quarters, making sure the pieces are roughly the same size. Cut the onion into quarters. 3. When the water comes to a boil, add the potatoes, onion, garlic, Old Bay, and hot pepper sauce. Cover, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until a knife easily pierces the

potatoes. 4. Break the ears of corn into pieces about 3 inches long. Add the corn to the pot, return to a boil, and cook, uncovered, for about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and stir. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through; be careful not overcook. 5. Drain immediately in a large strainer. Discard the crab boil bag and lemon halves, and pour everything into a large serving bowl. Serve hot or warm, with melted butter, seafood cocktail sauce and lemon wedges, if desired.
