Hornets Cant Cope With Leonardtown Offense

Receiver Moves to Quarterback, Frustrates Great Mills
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer LEONARDTOWN In a move of necessity that may turn out to be genius, Leonardtown football coach Anthony Pratley felt the Raiders best chance for success this week rested squarely on the shoulders of senior wide receiver Mike Copenhaver. We have to get the ball in the hands of our athletes, Pratley said, and Mike is an athlete. Copenhaver took every snap at quarterback and raced his way to 202 yards rushing and three touchdowns as the Raiders defeated Great Mills 21-12 Friday Night at Raider Stadium. I knew the pressure was on me, said Copenhaver, who carried the ball 21 times officially, but started every one of the Raiders offensive plays. When youre 0-4, you need a boost and this win definitely helps. Copenhaver provided said boost as he stepped in and ran the Raiders Pistol Spread Option offense like he had been a quarterback his whole life. He attempted just three passes, one was completed to Bryan Wood for 12 yards and a first down in the first quarter. However, Copenhaver preferred his legs to his arm, as he ran for touchdowns of 59, 6 and 75 yards, the final touchdown coming 19 seconds into the fourth quarter. On a third-and-seven from his own 25-yard line, Copenhaver broke through the right side of the Hornet

Womens Softball Team Completes Sweep For Championship

By Chris Stevens Staff Writer It wasnt a runaway as the final totals suggest, but Just Us what they had to do to win the St. Marys County Womens Softball Championship Monday night at Chancellors Run Park. On the strength of third baseman Robin Pettits three-run homer, they defeated Raleys 12-8 to close out the best of five series 3 games to 0 and win their first league championship, a feat that stands out in the eyes of team manager Lamont Saxon. The state championship they won was a weekend thing, Saxon said of their Class D title they won in Ocean City in late July. This one, they played hard all week throughout the season and they deserved it. This one is the best of them all. Raleys didnt make it easy on them as right center fielder Amy Hicks drove in three runs and kept See Just Us Softball page B-3

By Chris Stevens Staff Writer GREAT MILLS The saying thats the way the ball bounces never held more true than in the final minutes of last Wednesdays boys soccer match between Leonardtown and Great Mills. The Hornets scored their only goal during stoppage time off of a Raider defender, and neither team scored in the two overtime periods, resulting in a 1-1 tie. We had chances, Hornets first-year coach Matt Taggart said of his team missing the winning goal on a couple of occasions in the extra periods. We just couldnt finish. It happens. That was a very good team we played tonight, Raiders coach Matt Reber said. In an overtime game, you always say you think we played well enough to win, but I really think our guys played hard.

Smithson Carries Seahawks Field Hockey Past York
York, Pa. Senior captain Emily Smithson (Richmond, Va./James River) notched her team-leading sixth goal of the season in helping the St. Marys College of Maryland field hockey squad snap a four-game skid with a 1-0 victory over Capital Athletic Conference foe York College of Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon. St. Marys (5-6, 4-1 CAC) struck early as Smithson captured the rebound off the pads of junior Claire Rekitzke (Seaford, Del./Seaford Senior) following a shot by freshman Susan Smith (Chestertown, Md./ Queen Annes County) at 12:43. Smithsons goal proved to be the game-winner as the Spartans (6-8, 2-4 CAC) could not manage to get a shot past sophomore Emma Lauhoff (Wayne, Pa./Radnor), who finished the afternoon with nine stops in keeping YCP at bay. York posted a 20-15 shot advantage over the Seahawks, while several opportunities to put in the cage as See SMC Sports Briefs page B-4

Great Mills Soccer

Continued from page B- The Raiders (6-1-2 overall, 5-1-1 in Southern Maryland Athletic Conference action) struck first during the latter stages of the first half, as Ryan Vanderwest redirected a corner kick from Shawn Miedzinski past Hornets keeper Michael Branigan for a 1-0 lead. For the majority of the second half, the Raiders spent a ton of time in the Great Mills defensive end, passing the ball around and keeping the

Hornets (7-1-1 on the season, 5-1-1 in SMAC games) from getting a rhythm. Then in the second half stoppage time, the Hornets got a break. On a corner kick, the ball ricocheted off of Shayne Fairgrieve past goalie Joe Coble to knot the score at 1. Thats what happens when you shoot, Taggart said, as he was encouraging his team to let fire when they went deep into Raider territory. It doesnt have to be pretty as long as it goes in the net. For Reber, the important development would be how the Raiders would handle such a devastating way to lose a lead. My first thought after the goal was how are we going to respond to this situation, he said. I make the analogy to golf the pros get in trouble, but they get themselves out of it. They might be in the woods, but their next shot is great. In the two 10-minute overtime periods, the Raiders had several great shots at a game-winning goal, including two from Jonathan Gockel that clanged off the top crossbar and a third that Hornets defender James Hofmeister

bicycle-kicked out of harms way. The crossbar is a goalies best friend, Reber joked. Sometimes it works for our team, tonight it worked for the other team. Great Mills best chance came late in the second overtime when Sean Millham broke in on Coble and lifted a shot over the goalie that just went perhaps a quarter of an inch wide of the cage, and with penalty kicks reserved for post-season play, the teams had to settle for the tie. Taggart, who played at Leonardtown under former coach Bruce Henderson, is well aware of the Raider tradition and feels that this game will help the young Hornets, who have nearly doubled their win total from 2007. I think its huge for their confidence, he said. Once they start showing they can play with these teams, the skys the limit. Reber, who took over for Henderson shortly before the

Mistakes Costly for Hornets

to keep themselves in the game. Lack of concentration, Griffith said. The thing that hurts us are the mental mistakes. We dont have the ability to play catch-up. Several dropped passes were part of the problem for Great Mills. When quarterback Brian Jenner did have time to throw, a lot of his passes were dropped by Hornet receivers, including a sure touchdown by Austin Samblanet in the second quarter on fourth down that gave the Raiders the ball back with no harm done to their 7-0 lead at that point.

Raiders coach Anthony Pratley wasnt fooled by the Hornets 0-4 record coming into the game, and he wanted his team prepared.

We knew coming into this game that it was going to be tough, Griffith said of playing their cross-county rival who was just as hungry for a win as the Hornets were. The mistakes killed us.

Birthdays, Computers and Quarterbacks, Oh My
By Chris Stevens Staff Writer So filling this space with one topic on a regular basis was officially a bad idea. Ive found that its easier for the readers to read about several different subjects in this column, so thats what well do until told otherwise. Thanks to Chip Raley, Tracy Vallandingham, Lamont Saxon, the manager of the Just Us softball team, and a lot of nice people for wishing me a happy birthday when they saw me around a couple of weeks ago. It really was cool to spend my first birthday on my own in a place where people actually dont mind wishing you well. That kind of caring is always good for a smile or two, but enough of the sappy stuff, onto sports.

Raiders switch up game plan, get first win

The Leonardtown High football teams Pistol Spread Option offense, although unique in design, was coming up short in terms of production going into Friday nights showdown with SMCPS rival Great Mills, so head coach Anthony Pratley decided to put the ball in the hands of one of his better athletes, senior wide receiver Mike Copenhaver. Copenhaver moved to quarterback, and slipped and spun his way past Hornet defenders for over 200 yards rushing and all three of the Raider touchdowns in a 21-12 win. The feeling of dj vu at Leonardtown is apparent, as the Raiders were 0-4 going into the Great Mills game last season, won that contest and

started a three game winning streak. It gets much tougher for the Raiders tomorrow night, when they host SMAC up-andcomer North Point, but with Copenhaver taking the snaps, the Eagles would be wise to watch out for Leonardtown.

Hockey in the south; or The NHL Take the C out of doesnt want to the BCS and survive
The National Hockey League is definitely not a prime example of how you want to run a league or any business for that matter. With commissioner Gary Bettman ignoring the fact that Hockey south of the Mason Dixon is better off left to the minor leagues, the troubles of the Nashville Predators will

not quiet the detractors that want Bettman out as league boss. The Preds have defaulted on a 40 million dollar loan designed to keep the team alive and out of the hands of Blackberry device creator Jim Balsillie, who has offered to buy the struggling franchise and move it to Southern Ontario, where two teams in the NHL (the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Buffalo Sabres) currently draw heavily. Despite two teams in the immediate area, Balsillie, in a premature celebration of buying the team this past summer, was able to sell a substantial number of season tickets, proving once again that the NHL Sun Belt experiment has been a bad one, as if the Florida Panthers and Atlanta Thrashers playing in half empty buildings wasnt proof enough. Anyone who has taken a business course knows that if you alienate your customers and intended audience, your business will fail rather quickly. How the NHL has remained afloat with Bettman in the charge for 16 years is beyond me.

have been full of failure (Florida sandblasting Ohio State in 2006 immediately comes to mind as the worst title game ever). If our everyday lives were at the mercy of a computers opinion (they already run our jobs for the most part), then what would be the point of getting out of bed every day? Theres something to be said for the challenges most days will bring. How do you handle adversity? Will a setback really set you back? Or is it a set-up for a comeback? Thats how college football should be. Georgia, the early BCS favorite, got smacked around by Alabama the previous week and they went from Numero Uno to Numero Once (thats 11 en espanol) in the AP Polls, which certainly spells death for their chances at the BCS title game. One loss, to a very good conference opponent no less, is the end of the Bulldogs championship dreams? If the BCS computer says it, then it is decreed and ordered. And thats not right. Not at all.

Thats pretty much my opinion of the Bowl Championship Series and their computerized system that calculates who should play for the NCAA football championship. In the six seasons that the BCS system has been in play, there have been some intriguing match-ups (Miami and Ohio State in 02, TexasUSC in 05) and a few that

I put on for the Phillies, on on for the Phillies

As a lifelong sports fan, its always been fun to be around a major city but not exactly in it. Growing up in Wilmington, Del., which might be a half-hour south of Philadelphia, I got to experience the insanity that was (and is) Philly sports fans from an up-close perspective, but just

far enough to maintain some semblance of sanity. The town is currently in a bi-polar frame of mind because the Eagles stunk it up against your beloved Washington Redskins Sunday afternoon, which makes them miserable. Their joy comes from the Philadelphia Phillies putting the Milwaukee Brewers to bed on the same day, winning a post-season set for the first time since the 1993 National League Championship Series. As someone who is NOT an Eagles fan (ask me why Im a Cleveland Browns fan if youd like), Im more inclined to care about the Phils, who I grew up watching and actually shed tears when Joe Carter homered off of Mitch Williams to win the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays in 93. I was 12, dont judge me for my tears. One world championship in 126 seasons of play tells you all you need to know about the Phillies fortunes, and hopefully this is the year they snap the jinx. Philly hasnt had a major sports champion since the Sixers swept the Lakers for the NBA title in 1983. So for the sake of psychiatrists and drugstores everywhere back home, lets hope the fightin Phils get it done. Any comments about this weeks From The Sports Desk?

Just Us Softball
Continued from page B- Raleys in the game. Thats been our plan, said manager Juanita Redman, to make them work, but Just Us is a good team and they can hit. The hitting began early in Game Three as Just Us batted around in scoring seven runs on seven hits, jumping out to a lead they would hold for the rest of the game. We usually dont hit in the first inning, said right center fielder Angelita King, who got things started with an RBI single that scored Gail Maddox for the games first run. We were able to score seven runs this time. We all wanted this badly as a team. Even with the seven-run deficit staring them in the face, Redman felt her girls were playing with house money and was confident they could play catch up. We know were going to get all of the runs back at one time she explained. We just had to get them little by little. It looked like Raleys was primed for a big comeback in the fourth inning as they scored four runs, two coming on a Hicks

Angelita King of Just Us follows through on a single in the first inning of Game Two of the womens softball finals Sunday afternoon.

Yola Lyles drove in three runs on Sunday as Just Us won game two 8-5 to put themselves in position for the sweep.

Aggie Lloyd and Maddox connected on back-to-back RBI singles and after King flied out to Hicks, up stepped Pettit, who was the center of a controversy in last years championship series. It was big for her to hit that home run, because hers was the bat they tested last year, Saxon said of Pettit being accused of using an illegal bat in last years championship series with Chesapeake Custom Embroidery. It showed that the lady has talent. Shes been showing it all year. Pettit launched Lori Raleys offering over the left field wall, bouncing off of a minivan and over to the playground, giving Just Us all the runs they needed to win. When a woman can hit a ball that far, what can you do, Redman asked. Robin can definitely hit. Said King of her teammates blast; They had momentum after they scored those four runs, but I think the home run took it away from them. Raleys scored two runs in each of their last two turns at bat, but Just Us held on to win the championship, disappointing to Redman, but she was still proud of her team. We fought as hard as we could and we made them a little nervous, she said. We had nothing to lose. King meanwhile cites the close-knit nature of the team, who fought through adversity all year, as the reason for their title. We really dont let what people think of us or outside issues bother us once we get on the field, she said. When were out there, it is what it is. We are a team.

Mens Soccer Team Picks-up Fourth Draw of the Season

Arlington, Va. The St. Marys College of Maryland mens soccer team erased a two-goal deficit but settled once again for a tie as the Seahawks battled Marymount (Va.) University to a 2-2 draw in Capital Athletic Conference action Saturday night. The match was scoreless until the 41st minute when senior midfielder Andrew Stearns (Pembroke, Mass./Cardinal Spellman) put one past freshman Dan Gressang (Bowie, Md./Bishop McNamara) to give Marymount (3-6-3, 2-1-1 CAC) a 1-0 lead, heading into halftime. Junior forward Paul Decker (Silver Spring, Md./ Wheaton) assisted on the play. Stearns struck again in the second half at 64:19 as he finished a feed from freshman midfielder Mario Rojas (Alexandria, Va./Hayfield). Less than four minutes later, freshman forward Ted Scharfenberg (Holbrook, N.Y./St. John the Baptist) put the Seahawks (2-5-4, 1-1-2 CAC) within one with his first collegiate goal. Senior forward Benard Agyingi (Baltimore, Md./ Dunbar) netted the equalizer at 83:53 with his third goal of the season. Neither squad fired a shot in the first 10-minute overtime period, but St. Marys then outshot the Saints, 3-1 in the final OT stanza. However, two shots were off the mark and sophomore William Brahmstedt (Falls Church, Va./JEB Stuart) denied the other. The Seahawks posted a narrow 14-11 margin in shots, while having a commanding 11-3 advantage in corner kicks. Gressang finished the night with five stops for St. Marys, while Brahmstedt also had five saves for his team.

Dedication Ceremony Attended by Former Governor

Glendening Building, First College Building to be Completed Under Innovative Maryland Heritage Project
Former Gov. Parris N. Glendenings little daughter Bri grappled with big scissors while cutting the ribbon at the dedication for the new building named for her father during Family Weekend at St. Marys College of Maryland (SMCM). Parris N. Glendening Hall will house the colleges student services offices in one convenient location. In keeping with the SMCM commitment to environmental stewardship, 25 percent of the buildings construction materials and furnishing are recycled. When the building opens in spring 2009, it is projected that its energy-efficient systems and fixtures will reduce energy consumption and water use by 30 percent. Glendening talked about how vital a liberal arts education is in shaping future discussion in a difficult world by asking what ought to be. It is here at St. Marys College with the liberal arts program, with the focus on humanities, and on our place in the world, that we prepare people to ask those questions.... Many of these students will return to their communities with intellectual and moral seeds planted here to ask different questionsto ask the ought questions, or the why not questions. These are the minds that are being trained here. These are the citizens that will be produced on these historic grounds. While he was in office, the former governors support of the Maryland Heritage Project was instrumental in funding the buildings construction. SMCM President Jane Margaret Maggie OBrien said in her welcoming remarks: Why Glendening Hall? In 1999, then-Gov. Parris Glendening, through his leadership, was instrumental in procuring a

Tool for Parents to Encourage Safe Driving Habits for Life
The day finally comes and your teen drivers receive his or her drivers license. A little more freedom for the teen and a little more free time for mom and dad. But how does your teen drive once you step out of the vehicle? Studies and data have shown that seat belt use is greatly reduced, and crashes, injuries and fatalities increase. And 50% of the teen driver crashes cause injury to passengers or occupants from other vehicles. It is not always the teen driver who is affected. Parents may feel confident in the driving skills of their teen driver. The parents, hopefully, have spent the 60 hours and more riding with and coaching their teen driver prior to the provisional licensing. But what about the signals sent when a parent rides with a teen driver. Using the right side brake, pointing out situation the teen driver needs to be aware or just making sounds which signal to the teen driver to pay close attention to their surroundings. If mom and dad are no longer able to give the signals, to remind their teen driver to drive the speed limit, to avoid distractions, to change speeds to the roadway and weather conditions what habits begin to form? DriveCam, a free in-car video system is designed to help parents review driving errors and to set the safest lifetime driving habits for their teen drivers. There is no undisclosed effort for the videos. The videos are the property of the teen and their parents. The videos used to review the program locally were released by teens and parents from the mid-west to serve as examples of how and way DriveCam is a useful tool. And the project is FREE for 300 families with teen drivers in Southern Maryland. Southern Maryland has an extremely high percentage of young driver crashes. If a parent has the ability to reduce these crashes, reduce the number of citations issued, or modify behavior before either crashes or citations occur, who would not take interest in the program? The good news is the program still has many slots available. And the local Community Traffic Safety Program (CTSP) Coordinators in Calvert, Charles and St. Marys counties in Southern Maryland are joining together to promote the program. Inoffice review of the project are available and arrangements can be made to promote the program through at churches, organization meetings, neighbor watch meetings or just to a group of neighbors with teen drivers.

Disappearing Ink
While Tattoo Trends Are on the Rise, So Is Tattoo Removal
Do you have a tattoo? Many people today do. Studies show that one in seven adults now sport one or more tattoos. Television shows like TLCs Miami Ink, LA Ink, and A&Es Inked have taken tattoing out of the realm of bikers, rock stars and rebellious teenagers and have illustrated that its a mainstream form of self expression. Tattoos were once considered deviant behavior, says Myrna Armstrong, EdD, a professor at the School of Nursing, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Many older people may still think thats the case. But younger people, however, view body art as a form of decoration and self-expression. Through the years tattooing has remained a way of expressing identity so that individuals may feel unique. But as more and more people go under the needle, tattoos lose some of their mystique and appeal; tattooed people are no longer standing out in society, so to speak. Other people feel theyve simply outgrown their tattoos, and they dont mean as much to them as they once did. As a result, tattoo removal has grown in popularity. laser tattoo removal procedures were up 17 percent between 2001 and 2005. In 2005 alone, approximately 55,000 procedures were performed. Removing a tattoo is far more expensive and involved than getting one in the first place; its not simply, zap and the tattoo is history. The end result of tattoo removal can also be scarring and some residual ink coloring. That is why if anyone is on the fence as to whether to tattoo, they should seriously take these factors into consideration. Still, new innovations in laser tattoo removal continue to streamline the process for those who simply have outgrown the tattoo novelty or find that a tattoo is negatively interfering with relationships or career opportunities. In the past, the only options for removing tattoos were dermabrasion and excision, neither particularly effective, and both often painful. Today, pigment-specific lasers can erase more colors than before. Keep in mind that some colors, such as black, blue, red, and purple are easier than other colors to remove. Yellows and greens are some of the more difficult. The process also takes time. Many patients have to have a laser procedure roughly five to seven times to see an obvious lightening of the tattoo. Some require up to 15 sessions. In the end, a tattoo will be considerably removed, but there will be some faint reminders of the artwork that once resided on the skin. New ink technology is also being developed for those who want a tattoo but may want to remove it later. The ink is made to basically

Risks With Removal

Every medical procedure poses some risk, as is the case with tattoo removal. Scarring and infection are some of the more common outcomes. Generally, laser removal is relatively safe. The risk of infection is low if you follow your doctors instructions after treatment. Conditions like hyperpigmentation (the skin in the affected area becoming darker than usual) or hypopigmentation (the skin in the affected area becoming lighter than usual) can also occur. Reduce the risk of complications and improve the odds of a successful tattoo removal by researching and checking out reputable clinics, with doctors who specialize in this field of dermatologic work.

Disappearing Act
For the hundreds of people who have tattooed a girlfriend or boyfriends name on their body only to be jilted in love, the technology of tattoo removal proved a welcome relief. Dermatologists throughout the U.S. say that anywhere from 15 to 50 percent of people who get tattoos later regret them. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) reported that
