Mike Hebb’s dominance in the face-off circle keyed the Raiders’ 15-9 victory over Huntingtown High School Thursday Night.

By Chris Stevens Staff Writer HUNTINGTOWN – Thursday Night’s boys’ lacrosse match at Huntingtown was more than just the SMAC opener for the Leonardtown Raiders, and more than just a game against the team who has beaten them in each of the last two seasons. The 15-9 victory was a tribute to a beloved member of the Raider family who the team has unfailingly rallied around. “Mike Hamlett, a former player of ours is in the hospital with a broken

neck,” said Raiders coach Matt Chew. “His sister is our team manager, his mom has been the team mom, so that was very important for us tonight, to assist his family.” With a member of their family heavily on their minds, the Raiders had extra incentive to hustle all game long as they did. For every goal, assist and ground ball the Raiders recorded Thursday, seven dollars would be donated to Michael Hamlett’s medical care, and Leonardtown (3-1 overall, 1-0 SMAC) did not disappoint. “Mike’s been like a big brother to

me, I’ve known him since I was a kid,” said senior Stephen Norris, who scored two goals in the win. “It’s only right that we came out as a unit and supported the Hamlett family and made some money for them. They deserve it.” “When you play Leonardtown lacrosse, you’re playing as a family,” said senior attacker Kenney Aicher. “It was important that we came out and gave our all for him.” Aside from the personal motivation, the Raiders have felt the crunch of losing to the Hurricanes once in each of the previous two years, including See Raiders Lacrosse page B-

St. Mary’s College Sports Briefs Assistant Coach Bill Ward Recognized by US SAILING As 2007 National Coach of the Year (St. Mary’s City, MD) March 24, 2008—US SAILING’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC) recognized Bill Ward, assistant sailing coach at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, with the 2007 National Coach of the Year Award.

Chopticon’s Stephen Shorter swings at a pitch as Great Mills catcher Alex Mancil looks on.

MORGANZA – Great Mills baseball coach Steve Wolfe was very pleased with the Hornets’ 3-2 victory over Chopticon, and not just because they won. It was the way his young ball club responded to the late inning pressure-cooker that had the coach smiling from ear to ear. “We’re a really young team, and we are going to be in a lot of these 2-1, 3-2 ballgames all year,” Wolfe said. “For them to get a close win like this against a quality team like Chopticon, I couldn’t be happier.” Great Mills (1-1 on the season as well as in SMAC competition) starts just two seniors, catcher Alex Mancil (who con-

nected for three hits on the afternoon) and first baseman Brandon Gravelle. One of the young Hornets responsible for the close victory was junior pitcher Matt Jackson, who went the full seven innings, striking out eight Braves batters and walking just two. “Their pitcher single-handedly beat us today,” said Chopticon coach Steve Williams. “He had our guys all over the place.” “I just tried to throw first pitch strikes and come inside a couple of times,” Jackson said. Nearly as untouchable for Chopticon was Steven Shorter, who struck out five and walked three in six-plus innings of work. After the Hornets took a See Baseball page B-

1-0 lead in the top half of the inning, Shorter worked his way out of several jams until Will Anderson singled home Gravelle in the sixth to give Great Mills what seemed to be an insurance run. However, the Braves rallied in the bottom half of the inning tying the game on a double steal. With Jackson ahead in the count on Charles Seifert with two outs, Tyler Summers broke for second base and Jackson tossed over to Gravelle, but before anyone could react, Chopticon senior Jason Villa scurried home uncontested and just like that, the game was tied at two. The Hornets came to bat in the top of the seventh, and Gravelle led off with a double, but after a couple of fly-outs, it looked like the Braves were going to strand him at third. That’s when Jackson came through at the plate. On a 12 count, he slapped a pitch towards Braves second baseman Michael Labanowski, who couldn’t field it cleanly. Gravelle raced home and the Hornets had the lead. “I know how to get up there and get a base hit, but I just wanted to make contact,” Jackson said. He then went out for the last half of the inning and worked his way out of another jam to close the game, stranding the tying run at third base. “Matt Jackson pitched a heck of a ball game,” Wolfe said. “Even

A View From The Bleachers A Mirror Doesn’t Distort By Ronald N. Guy Jr. Contributing Writer If you are old enough to remember when the National Hockey League was the fourth major professional sport, when it called Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NFL its peers, then you also remember Patrick

Roy (pronounced Whaaah for the hockey challenged). Roy was a dominant goalie who won 4 Stanley Cups; his first in 1986 as a 20-year-old with the storied Montreal Canadians and his last in 2001 as a grizzled veteran with the Colorado Avalanche. He is inarguably one of the greatest goalies in NHL history and

was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006. Today, Roy spends his time with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) where he is head coach (in addition to owner and General Manager) and his oldest son Jonathan is, like his father, a goalie. Last week, Coach Roy had a front

Thursday night, with specialist Mike Hebb winning seemingly every face-off, the Raiders were able to use their championship experience and athleticism, along with several extra-man opportunities to open up an early 5-1 lead that Huntingtown never quite recovered from. “I would bet that half of their goals came from the man advantage,” said Hurricanes coach Rodger Ganley.

Huntingtown’s Tommy George upends Leonardtown’s Stephen Norris in Thursday’s SMAC boys’ lacrosse match.

Spearheading the victory was Aicher, who scored six goals and handed out three assists, leading the way with his quickness around the net and accurate shot. “Last year against them was a heartbreaker,” Aicher said of the one-goal defeat last May. “It’s a relief to finally beat them on their home field.” Aside from Aicher’s sixgoal outburst, Igor Laray, Norris, Brian Dallaire and Nolan Stewart all added two goals and Brandon Lutz found the net for Leonardtown. Ryan Johnston scored three goals to lead Huntingtown, while Kelsey Baier-Anderson and Dave Rice scored two times each for the Hurricanes.

row seat to history repeating itself. Patrick Roy was an ornery, ultra-competitive player. It’s part of what made him great. He was never above putting a little wood (in the form of his goalie stick) into the back of an unsuspecting opponent’s legs or skating the length of the ice to brawl with the opposing goalie. As fans, we marveled at his goaltending skills and were puzzled by his willingness to instigate the ever popular “goalie fight”. Apparently, young Jonathan Roy was impressed by his father’s antics as well. Last week, during a Remparts game, Jonathan charged the opposing goalie, yanked off the lad’s mask and proceeded to punch the non-retaliatory opponent, as it appears in the video, until he got bored. As he skated off the ice, he signaled “I’m #1” to the crowd with something other than his index finger. It is alleged that papa Roy encouraged his son to inflict said carnage and cheered his efforts. Perhaps slightly misguided pride for one’s offspring? To be fair, this is a story because Patrick Roy was involved. And, it is a little unfair to single out Jonathan Roy, as there was a complete melee on the ice involving multiple participants from both teams. Jonathan “Smith” would have been just another player exhibiting boorish behavior. Nevertheless, for their efforts, the younger Roy received a 7 game suspension, the elder 5 games. Hockey’s culture can baffle the mind. On one hand, it is the only sport, other than fighting sports such as Mixed Martial Arts or Boxing, which tolerates fighting. Sure they hand out penalties when the goons of opposing teams “drop the gloves”. But bare-knuckled fistfights are still a “strategic” component of a team’s game plan. Conversely, it is my humble opinion that hockey gives us the quintessential show

Section B - 

of sportsmanship. If you’ve never seen the end of a NHL playoff series, treat yourself this year. In short, after ruthlessly beating and banging on one another for between 4 and 7 games, the combatants form two long lines and, to a man, offer or humbly accept congratulations. So don’t let what happened with the Roy family last week soil your opinion of hockey. Likewise, don’t dismiss it as another unfortunate incident exclusive to hockey. It has broader application. Children unavoidably inherit their parent’s genes. They also watch their parents…keenly. No sponge can rival the absorbency of a child’s mind. From influential adults, children pick up mannerisms, phrases and most importantly for this situation, reactions to adverse situations. A plethora of outdoor sports, from high school lacrosse or baseball to county softball, will have many of us shuttling about the County over the next few months. Inevitably, there will be heated, highly competitive moments during those games when things don’t go so well for the home team. How will we as parents react? Pause before you do, because impressionable eyes are watching and minds are waiting to catalog another entry from mom or dad. I suspect young Jonathan Roy was watching his dad attentively during his professional career. He was watching his form on kick saves or wrist shots high to the glove side. He was also watching when dad fought Detroit Red Wings goalie’s Mike Vernon and Chris Osgood in successive years during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sadly, but not surprisingly, he re-enacted the scene last week in a junior hockey league game. Parents, think of Patrick Roy when you hit a lazy fly to left field, with your family looking on, at a key spot late in the game. Think of him when your child is on

the wrong end of a dubious call by a referee. Instead of slamming your bat and blurting an expletive or being another sad example of an overzealous parent chewing on a referee, aspire to use sports and such situations to teach a lesson about dealing with adversity. Give them an example of good competition and sportsmanship, of respect for the game and those who play it with you and against you. Handle yourself with class and maintain control of your emotions. Do that and there’s a good chance your mirror images, your kids, will conduct themselves similarly. Patrick Roy looked into a mirror last week, and when he watched his son beat up his counterpart and flip the crowd the bird, he saw himself. Overtime: Spring thaws and heightens the senses. The sight of green grass, smell of blooming flowers, feel of the warming sun and the taste of Southern Maryland seafood are unmistakable. What about the sounds of springs? Sports fans, close your eyes and listen, what do you hear? I hear the pop of leather as it corrals a spherical object traveling at a high velocity. I hear the crack of wood or ping of aluminum against said rapidly traveling stitched cowhide sphere. I hear the sound of a runner sliding into second base, dumping the opposing shortstop looking to “turn two”. I hear baseball. And this season will be like no other for Southern Maryland baseball fans. This past Sunday night the Washington Nationals successfully christened (with a 9th inning walk-off homerun by Ryan Zimmerman) Nationals Park in Washington, DC and the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, owned by Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson, will begin play at “The Big Crabpot” (Regency Furniture Stadium) in Waldorf. Get out there and enjoy our local teams and the national pastime.

Her second lecture focused on the role of women in politics, and her belief that this is the “breakthrough century for women.” In her third appearance she discussed the campaign strategies of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Reflecting on Townsend’s personal background and how it relates to her forthcoming talk, Taber said, “[She] was a teenager in that spring when King and then her father were assassinated. Yet she resolved even in those moments not to let bitterness drown out hope. When her father, Bobby Kennedy, informed a crowd on his presidential campaign trail in Indianapolis that King had been killed, the emotions were palpable. Yet among the many cities in which rioting broke out that night, there was calm in Indianapolis.”

Quit Smoking This Spring Health Department offers classes and Quit Coaches for support St. Mary’s County Health Department is changing things up a bit this Spring by providing two options for help with quitting smoking. Smoke Free for Life, the health department’s traditional smoking cessation program begins at Ridge Volunteer Rescue Squad, Saturday, April 5. The second option, personal Quit Coaches, is available for those who prefer one-on-one support and would rather tailor their smoking cessation effort to their own schedule. Each method offers the same support for quitting by teaching about the benefits of quitting, how to quit, stress management, and secondhand smoke. Both methods are available free of charge. The Ridge program will consist of six weekly Saturday classes from 10 – 11 a.m. at the Resque Squad building. Program participants will be eligible to receive coupons for free Nicoderm ® patches. Pre-registration is required. The one-on-one sessions will begin Monday, April 7. Participants will meet with a Quit Coach for 30 minutes each week for 12 weeks. Appointments will be scheduled to take place between the hours of 1 and 7 p.m. on Mondays. Program participants will be eligible to receive free Chantix® with a written prescription from their doctor. You must be at least 18 years old and a resident of St. Mary’s County to attend these programs. For information and to register for either of these programs, call 301-475-4356. 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. Last year, David Sanger, New York Times chief correspondent for the White House, met with classes in political science, economics, and Nitze

Program seminars, and had a discussion with the staff of the College newspaper, The Point News, about careers in journalism. Previously, author Edward P. Jones had given public readings from his Pulitzer prize-winning novel, The Known World, and joined a panel discussion about why writers write.

Wildlife Babies! Well, it’s about that time. Wildlife babies! Though they can be seen throughout the year, generally March to May is when they’re seen the most-and seem to cause the most problems. The two main questions when finding a young wild animal are: Do they need my help? Who do I call for help? The Tri-County Animal Shelter advises that the first thing to always keep mind is your own personal safety. Remember that certain animals, such as raccoons and foxes, can carry rabies. Do not handle these animals! Whether the animal is a raccoon, squirrel or bird, watch the baby from a safe distance to see if his parents are in the vicinity and caring for him. If the baby is in no danger and the parents are caring for him, it is often best to leave him alone. Mother rabbits feed their young only twice daily, at dawn and dusk. They are secretive so you are not likely to see them when they visit their nests. Baby rabbits leave the nest when they are the size of a man’s fist and are fully able to care for themselves. When wild rabbits are handled un-

necessarily or kept in captivity, they usually die. Deer leave their young hidden in the grass for several hours at a time while they look for food. They may be orphaned if they have been in the same spot for over 12 hours, look weak or ill, or if flies are buzzing around them. If you find a baby bird with little or no feathers under a tree and it doesn’t move much, look for its nest and return it. It is not true that the

REVOLUTION - A Tribute to the Beatles On Saturday, April 12, 8 p.m. at Great Mills High School the group called REVOLUTION will present a leading worldwide touring show that captures the Beatles with authentic instruments, costumes, a visual impact, sound and excitement that can only be described as incredible: The four-man group of Beatles impersonators delivers a concert than takes the audience time traveling through the 60’s. The concert showcases the Beatles’ greatest hits, featuring music from their historic appearances on “The Ed Sullivan Show”, their

appearance for the Queen of England and their movies, “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Help”, as well as tracks from their ground breaking albums like “Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt.

Hoofs to Know By Theresa Morr Have you ever tried walking around on your toenails? Eeeek! That would hurt your tootsies a whole bunch. But lots of animals walk around on their toenails all the time. Pigs, cows, horses, sheep, and goats do it. So do rhinos, hippos, giraffes, and other animals, too. And it doesn’t hurt them at all. How come? They’re ungulates! Unga who? Ungulates are mammals having hoofs (or hooves), which are hard, horny sheaths covering the toes. This hardened outer layer of growth is called keratin and it protects the animals when they run. Your toenails and fingernails are made out of the same stuff, too. Ungulates are also different from other animals because they walk by digitigrade locomotion, which is just a cool way of saying they walk on their toes. Long feet. The next time you go to the zoo, check out some ungulates, especially zebras and antelopes. Hoofed animals like these living on the plains of Africa with no place to hide have to run fast, and those long feet evolved over time help them to escape from hungry predators. Hoof’s who. Ungulates are divided into two main

groups, the even-toed and the odd-toed. The even-toed guys with cloven or divided hoofs are the largest group and include familiar animals like cattle, pigs, camels, antelopes, deer, hippos, and giraffes, among many others. The oddtoed guys with solid hoofs are a much smaller bunch – horses, zebras, tapirs, and rhinos. Why the difference? Well, hoofs are adapted to the ground the animal walks or runs on, whether it’s on the grassy plains of Africa, the desert, or in Farmer Jones’ barnyard. Knowing “hoof’s who” in the ungulate world is easy – just scope out the toes! Toe talk. Animals with one toe like horses and zebras are faster runners than animals with two toes. Pigs, deer, cattle, sheep, goats, and other two-toed ungulates walk better on soft or uneven surfaces. Rhinos and tapirs walk on three toes and hippos on four. You might be surprised to learn that camel hoofs are really splayed pads with toenails --- super cool for trekking through desert sands without sinking into it; and that elephants are classified as ungulates just because they walk on their tiptoes. The toes tell! “Barrels” on legs. Ungulates are basically vegetarians and some are also ruminants,

Sudoku like cows and deer. Ruminants have special stomachs that are divided into several compartments that act like fermentation vats. The bacteria in the compartments break down cellulose in plant material as it moves from one compartment to another. Now you know why these ungulates are big around the middle and why they’re always chewing their cuds---that’s regurgitated, partially digested food and Mother Nature’s way of helping her creatures digest their meals. To learn more stuff about ungulates, check out the really cool guide to the world’s hoofed mammals on www.
