Maggie Anderson To Play For Liberty


  Senior Maggie Anderson of Davidsonville  has signed with Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA to play lacrosse in 2018-19.  Anderson has been a 4 year varsity lacrosse player at AACS along with 4 years of varsity field hockey.  She has 12 years of playing experience behind her and has received both all-conference and all-county honors in lacrosse.  She is also apart of the 2015 and 2016 championship teams.
Anderson chose Liberty for the community and energy she felt while on campus.  She knew from early on that this is the place she wanted to go for college.  It had everything she was looking for.  It was a bigger Christian school close to home with her desired major of interior design.  After her visit to the campus, she came home saying "I am going to play there."  Playing lacrosse at Liberty had always been her goal.
Since entering AACS in 9th grade, AACS has played a large role in her preparation for college.  The challenging academics and spiritual influence has set her on the path for success.  Playing field hockey and lacrosse in high school has given her the constant reminder of who we all play for.  Athletics has taught her sportsmanship and humility.
"Her leadership role as a captain was exemplified through her skills, discipline, and willingness to lead by example in every aspect of the game.  Maggie's tenacity and drive is evident on the field.  Without hesitation, I can say that she is a young woman of integrity, probity, and passion." said Women's Lacrosse Ualani Schmitt
Jim Domoracki, Athletic Director said, "Maggie has worked hard throughout her high school years. She's been a good teammate and a good leader.  I am happy that her hard work has resulted in this opportunity at Liberty.  It is well deserved."

Billy O'Hara At UMBC

Exerpt from Capital Gazette article:

UMBC’s other captain is senior long stick midfielder Billy O’Hara, another South River alum. The tough, gritty Davidsonville resident led the Retrievers in ground balls in each of the previous two seasons and has amassed more than 100 for his career.

Loyola Lacrosse Losses In Double OT

    Loyola opened up a 4-2 lead Satursday before the end of the game's first quarter   Pat Spencer, of Davidsonville,  was involved in  all four of the Greyhounds'  four goals.  He scored the first unassisted after running from behind the cage, using a hesitation step to get past his defender before bouncing a shot inside the near post. 
    Spencer then was on the feeding end of the next Greyhounds' score when he threw a pass over the cage to a crashing Drapeau to put Loyola up 2-0 after just 68 seconds.
    After a goal by Virginia,  Loyola responded less than three minutes later as Spencer initiated from behind to feed P.J. Brown for a 15-yard low-to-low sling at 5:51. Virginia got back within one at 3:14 as Ian Laviano scored the first of what would be a game-high five goals, the first coming on extra-man.
    Spencer, however, pushed the advantage back to a pair with 15 seconds left before the expiration of the first quarter. John Duffy threw a pass from goal-line extended to Spencer at the top of the box, and Spencer stepped into an 18-yard bouncer that found the net.
