AA Co To Promote Agritourism

    Anne Arundel County is considering legislation to make it easier for farms to start new business enterprises.   Such things as corn mazes, pumpkin patches, pick your own, wine and farm tours, festivals, etc would fall into such a category and would increase tourism and the income that it would generate for both farmers and other businesses.
    This should be of benefit for the farmers of Davidsonville,  some of which are already involved in such enterprises.  You can read about the proposal at:

Jon Mazza & Towson Lose In Semi

Towson University sophomore midfielder Jon Mazza admitted the team's seniors have set the bar high for Towson U.  lacrosse. The Davidsonville resident was disappointed the Tigers could not send this respected class out in style as they lost to Ohio State on Saturday in the NCAA semi-finals.
Towson boasts a cumulative record of 40-14 with three NCAA Tournament appearances over the last three seasons. The Tigers reached the NCAA quarterfinals in 2016, finishing with the most wins (16) in program history.
Mazza finished Saturday with  a goal and an assist. The Calverton School product was the only person in Gillette Stadium that initially realized he had scored late in the first quarter. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder had his left-handed crank shot skip off the stick of goalie Tom Carey and sneak across the goal-line.
"It definitely wasn't one of my cleanest goals. I saw it hit the goalie and then I saw it hit the white line. I put my arms up and looked at the ref, then he put his arms up, too," Mazza said.

Keith Atchison Passes Away


    Keith Porter Atchison of Davidsonville, Maryland, passed away suddenly on May 14th, 2017.
    Keith was full of life and is best known for his fun loving demeanor, his love and concern for people, and his love for his family. Keith was always ready to reach out and help anyone in need. He was also always ready for a trip, time with friends and family, or any challenge. A graduate of South River High School where he played junior varsity baseball, Keith worked locally in retail sales. He especially liked the opportunity to meet new people and provide service to them on his job. He always went the extra mile to do things for people-from picking up hitchhikers to buying food for homeless people he saw near his job to helping an overwhelmed co-worker while doing his own job. In his free time Keith could be found long boarding, fishing, hiking, driving friends around, or spending time with his family. Keith had the intellect to figure things out quickly and devise ways to make them better. He also loved to tinker with things to see how they worked and how he could fix them or put them back together. He felt he could fix anything for anyone and most usually succeeded. He was an intelligent young man with a big heart who was a friend to everyone with whom he came in contact. He was taken too soon and will be terribly missed.
    Keith is survived by his parents, Carla and Don Atchison, brothers Chad, Brett, Grant, and Cole and his sister Meagan Dupras (Joseph), two grandfathers, Donald Atchison and David Broyles, and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins who loved him.
    A funeral service will be held at the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Annapolis 710 Ridgely Avenue Annapolis, MD on Saturday, May 20th at 11 am. Friends and family may gather one hour prior to service time. After the funeral services, a committal ceremony will be held at Lakemont Memorial Gardens in Davidsonville, MD at 2:30 pm.

Pat Spencer Finalist For Tewaaraton Award


Courtesy Loyola University Maryland Athletic Communications

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Loyola University Maryland sophomore attacker Pat Spencer was named one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award presented by Under Armour, an honor given yearly to the top player in college lacrosse that will be awarded on June 1.

Spencer will be joined at the awards ceremony held at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian by the University of Denver’s Trevor Baptiste, Albany University’s Connor Fields, the University of Maryland’s Matt Rambo and Yale University’s Ben Reeves.

In the Patriot League Championship Game against the U.S. Military Academy, Spencer became Loyola and the Patriot League’s single-season leader in assists, logging three to increase his 2017 total to 55. That mark snapped the 2014 total set by Justin Ward. He leads the NCAA in assists per game (3.67) and is third in points (5.47) heading into the NCAA Championships.

The Davidsonville, Maryland, native is Loyola’s third Tewaaraton Award finalist since its inception in 2001. Mike Sawyer was one of the final five in 2012, and Joe Fletcher was in 2014. Spencer is the fifth Patriot League student-athlete to be named a Tewaaraton Award finalist since 2001. He joins Fletcher, 2012 winner Peter Baum (Colgate), Jeremy Boltus (2011, Army West Point) and John Walker (2005, Army West Point) among this elite group.

In addition to his 55 assists this year, Spencer has 27 goals for a total of 82 points. Last year, he tied Gary Hanley’s 1981 school record with 89 points. The duo are the only players in program history to record 80 or more points in a season; Hanley did it three times from 1979-1981, and Spencer has accomplished the feat in each of the last two seasons.

Earlier this year, Spencer broke the Patriot League record for assists in a game, recording nine in a March 4 victory over College of the Holy Cross. His total tied Hanley’s school record and eclipsed Brian Duffy’s school Division I mark.

Spencer is the first player in conference history to be named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year in his first two seasons of collegiate competition. He was also named to the All-Patriot League First Team while earning two Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors and a BSN Sports/USILA National Offensive Player of the Week nod.

He has scored two or more points in all but one of his 33 career games, and he has 19 multi-goal and 23 multi-assist games. Spencer is the NCAA’s active career leader in assists (3.24), and he is third in points per game (5.18). 

His 107 career assists rank third in program and seventh in Patriot League history, while he has 171 career points which are good for eighth in Loyola’s history. 

Spencer and the Greyhounds open NCAA Championships action on Sunday, May 14, when they take on The Ohio State University at 5 p.m. on ESPNU.

The game started to slow down for Pat this year, and he has turned into a coach on the field. He is seeing how defenses are playing him and the offense, in general, and he is making great decisions on a week-to-week basis."
Spencer has recorded two or more points in all but one of his 31 career games and has already amassed 62 goals and 98 assists in just two seasons. Although just a sophomore, the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder already ranks third in Loyola history in assists and eighth in total points (160).

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Sophomore Madison Carter (Davidsonville, Md.) has been named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the week as announced by the league office earlier Tuesday afternoon.
Carter earns her fourth Offensive Player of the Week honor after tying a career-high with six goals against No. 1 Maryland last Thursday evening. The sophomore currently leads the Big Ten with 58 goals to rank fourth in the nation just five behind current leader Michaela Michael of USC.

The Davidsonville, Md. Native has now recorded three games this season with six goals and has double-digit goals in all but one contest on the year while riding a 24-game goal streak dating back to last season. Carter has only been held without a goal once in her 37 games played during her career.

The 14 goals scored by the Nittany Lions during the 16-14 setback to the top-ranked Terrapins were the most allowed by the nation’s 15th ranked defense who has only allowed an average of 9.00 goals per contest this season to lead the Big Ten.
