One Love Day ~ April 15th
4/6/2016

As part of our Boys' Latin One Laker / One Love Day ( Friday , 15 April , 2p-3p), Coach Ehrmann will be speaking to both internal and external coaches.  Many of you may have heard him prior, seen his you tube clips, or read his books.  His message about redefining masculinity, gender violence,  and transforming the lives of young people through transformative coaching is very well known. Obviously, there are many avenues to get his information in this digital age.  I have attached his most recent 2013 tedtalk and a letter I received many years ago.

ONE TEAM-ONE HEART-ONE LOVE = ONE MOVEMENT
by Joe Erhmann

I went to Yeardley Love's funeral with my twenty two year old son.  The University of Virginia lacrosse player was apparently murdered at the hands of a former boyfriend. My son, a college lacrosse player, was friends with Yeardley, her accused murderer, and many of the men and women on the UVA lacrosse teams.   Sitting next to him, I could feel and see him trying to process the conflicted emotions surrounding the enormity of this tragedy, compounded by knowing both the victim and the victimizer.  The young men sitting around me sobbed and sniffled. At one point in the ceremony I turned to an emotionally distraught young man and asked him if I could give him a hug. I was surprised at the strength and endurance of his hug as he held onto me seeking comfort and, I suspect, affirmation of his emotions and manhood. As he let go he said "thank you" without ever looking at me. Here lies part of the problem and a solution to the epidemic of violence women experience every day in Maryland and America.At an early age, boys are fitted with emotional straightjackets tailored by a restricted code of behavior that falsely defines masculinity. In the context of "stop crying," "stop those emotions," and "don't be a sissy," we define what it means to "Be a Man!" Adherence to this "boy code" leaves many men dissociated from their feelings and incapable of accessing, naming, sharing, or accepting many of their emotions. When men don't understand their own emotions it becomes impossible to understand the feelings of another.This creates an "empathy-deficit disorder" that is foundational to America's epidemic of bullying, dating abuse and gender violence.  Boys are taught to be tough, independent, distrusting of other males, and at all cost to avoid anything considered feminine for fear of being associated with women. This leads many men to renounce their common humanity with women so as to experience an emotional disconnect from them. Women often become objects, used to either validate masculine insecurity or satisfy physical needs. When the validation and satisfaction ends, or is infused with anger, control or alcohol, gender violence is often the result.  Violence against women is often thought of as a women's issue; but it is a mistake to call men's violence a women's issue. Since men are overwhelmingly the perpetrators of this violence, this men's issue calls to question the cultural values that produce men who hurt women. Sadly, Yeardley Love was only one of four women murdered by intimate partners that day. Who knows how many others were raped, battered, sexually abused, harassed or exploited by men that day and every day in America?Since Yeardley's funeral was packed with athletes, coaches, parents of athletes and sports fans, we need to look at the role sports could play in preventing future tragedies. Athletic Directors, coaches and educators have an almost unparalleled platform to bring together youth, families, and community partners to break the silence of gender violence and then design, implement and create preventive programs and activities. Educating boys and men in prevention programs is critical to reducing all forms of violence.  Coaches can and should teach their players to challenge the attitudes and assumptions that dehumanize women. Players need to be taught how to confront abusive peers and how stand up and speak out on behalf of their mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunts and female friends. Since so many boys no longer have a mentoring network of fathers, uncles, elders, and other males to initiate, train and guide them into manhood, coaches should and must assume part of this responsibility.I'd like to think Athletic Directors and coaches all over  America brought their male and female teams together to help process Yeardley's death and to implement prevention strategies within their schools and communities. Yet as someone involved nationally in the sports world, I know that did not happen. A teachable moment was overlooked in the name of business, schedules, tournaments and the reality that men often choose apathy and indifference when confronting the conditions that foster abusive male behavior. Two weeks after Yeardley's death I watched the UVA male and female teams take field under the banner of ONE TEAM-ONE HEART-ONE LOVE.  In the name of the world I want my sons and daughters to live in; I can only hope Yeardley Love's murder sparks ONE MOVEMENT to eradicate gender violence.  Robert Kennedy said, "Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills, against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence....Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of our generation."  Each man and every coach must start challenging the social norms that define manhood and hold other men and players accountable for their behavior toward women.

Humility - "The Wright Time"
4/6/2016

Coach Locey sent the following link to me yesterday. He and Coach Wright are friends from their college years at Bucknell. 
I enjoyed the nexus between humility and success.   http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/pattisonave/Jay-Wrights-class-and-humility-at-the-summit.html
(from the pre season meeting with parents and the boys in March)
Our mission statement offers to us the core values of courage, integrity, and compassion.  An enormous part of the compassion virtue is humility.  We, Lakers, have had a history of humility, and we value that as an enduring characteristic.  There seems to be a connotation of weakness associated with humility:  Its misunderstood….Low self esteem….insecurity  Humility is a powerful tool. It provides a clear opinion of yourself.   The product of humility is patience and growth.  Humility is NOT about thinking less of yourself.  It is about thinking of yourself LESS.  Don’t we all want to teach and inspire that in our children.
Thank you again Coah Locey for sending this.

Boys Latin Varsity Wrestlers Off to a Strong Start
12/7/2015

Congratulations to our varsity wrestling team for a great showing this past weekend at the Parkville, Knightmare tournament.  The boys wrestled with grit under new Head Coach John Sergeant.
The veterans Malinowski brothers and Kahlan were stellar once again.  Their years of wrestling in distant cold gyms in strange towns and putting the hours needed into their craft, continues to pay off for them.
Nick won the 126 lb. class with a 5-2 finals decision.  He also earned most outstanding lightweight wrestler honors.
Kaylan won his 100th match as a BL wrestler while defeating his Edgewood opponent 10-8 in the finals at 145.
Nate won his finals with a major decision 17-9 over Langley's Nico Waltman.
Ely Shilling, Blake Hall, Carrington Scott, and Ryan Trupia made their varsity debut this past weekend also. While Ely and Blake lost their two matches, they looked very promising. Carrington and Noah Michael both missed placing by one match, while Ryan placed 6th at 182 alongside Jamie Rice at 132.  
Walker Santos had an amazing first day wrestling, upsetting the #2 seed to advance to the semi-finals, and eventually placing 4th.  
Mac Alban wrestled up 17 pounds to compete at 195 and surprised several wrestlers with his tenacity taking 4th.
The Lakers finished in 3rd place (150 pts.) behind 2nd place Loyola (171.5 pts.) and 1st place champion Springbrook (214 pts.)
Great start to winter campaign

Upper School Athletics Fall 2015 Wrap Up
11/24/2015

Varsity Cross Country
Coach Scharff and his boys were repeat champions in B Conference Varsity Cross Country.  The 2015 team was 7-0 in B conference dual meet competitions, 14-0 overall.  This marks the second consecutive undefeated season.  Our CC boys have compiled a 3 year record of 34 - 1.  Matt Lugat, Garrett Voigt, and Ben Witham were All MIAA runners.  Several runners to include Mikey Petillo, Michael Ubriaco, Kahlan Lee-Lermer and many others were critical to the team’s training and success.  Congratulations to all the coaches and runners.

JV Cross Country
The JV team had a great season ending with a 3rd place finish in the championship race.  St. Mary’s HS and John Carroll edged the Lakers for the top spot.  They were 6-1 during the regular season against B conference opponents.

Varsity Football 
Head Varsity Football Coach Ritchie Schell’s team had a tremendous year.  A regular season 31-28 win at Archbishop Curley set the tone for the season.  With a late season 38-14 win versus St. Paul’s, we secured a #2 seed and home playoff game versus Curley.  MVP and senior quarterback Logan Wisnauskus was the offensive catalyst.  He finished the season with 2,741 yards passing with 24 touchdowns. Senior wide receiver Davy Lizana caught 60 passes for 901 yards.  He had 8 touchdowns.  Junior tight end Braden Atkinson had 5 TDs with 58 catches.  Senior kicker/punter Dom Maggio was a weapon.  His kickoffs were never returned and his majestic punts often pinned opponents deep.  Dom was named an Under Armour All American.  This is an honor no football player in our history has ever been bestowed. 
Defensively, junior Victor Dimukeje (42 tackles, 7 sacks, 8 tackles for loss), senior linebacker Andrew Murrow (67 tackles), and senior safety Sam Bowen (60 tackles) were stellar.  Varsity football completed their season with a 7-3 record as a B conference semifinalist.

JV Football  
JV Football Head Coach Alan Locey and the JV boys played very hard and disciplined football. They completed the season with a 9-1 record.  Down 17-0 at one point in the championship game versus Curley, the JV boys completed a thrilling comeback to beat the Friars bring home the championship 20-19.  Thank you coaches and boys for providing all of us with great moments and memories.

Varsity Volleyball
New Head Varsity Volleyball Coach Lon Engel and our boys had an outstanding season. They earned a #4 seed in the playoffs and ending as an 11-5 quarterfinalist.   Senior All MIAA /MVP Michael Morseberger led this talented group.  Michael and Jake Alokones were all conference.  Senior Ryan McNulty was the most improved player.

JV Volleyball
Our JV team struggled with a 5-11 record.  They did show great improvement. Many of the JV players will transition to the varsity next fall.

Varsity Soccer

This senior led group was terrific all year minus the championship game.  Goalkeeper Jordan Douglas, senior backs Brendan Mullally and Dylan Kowalewski were formidable and tough.  All 3 made All MIAA.  Additionally, Nick Malinowski and Regan Chasney were outstanding in the back to complete this defensive group. 
Leading scorer Andrew Brennan was also named All MIAA.  Josh Lurie was a huge presence offensively while scoring several goals off headers.   Cameron Miller was brilliant late in the season while providing an offensive surge.
The varsity finished their year as B conference runners-up with 13-3-2 conference record. Coaches and players should be very proud of their accomplishments.

JV Soccer

The JV squad has played very hard and were undefeated entering a home championship game versus the Severn School.  Head Coach Joe Bailey’s group never found their rhythm as they finished as the runner up.   Many of the defenders on this wonderful team will see substantial action as varsity players next fall

Varsity Club Membership 2015-16
11/19/2015

The Boys’ Latin athletic department encourages multi-sport participation, while recognizing that our competitive success is directly dependent on our boys playing many sports.  In an era when kids are often characterized as “specialized athletes” participating in only one sport, it is refreshing to see so many student athletes playing a variety of sports. We pride ourselves on that fact. Congratulations!  We also proud of our full time managers that assist and work with our teams and coaches.  
Yesterday, many of the members received their “VC” jackets


Grant Adams, Desmond Banks, Sam Bowen, Andrew Brennan, Mitch Casper, Greg Ey, Jeremy Greenberg, Max Keefe, Hayden Kovinsky, Kahlan Lee-Lermer, Matt Lugat, Jimmy Magee, Nate Malinowski, Joey Mallon, Ryan McNulty, Michael Morseberger, Brendan Mullally, Drew Nicholas, Jack Pezzulla, Spencer Rees, Will Reid, Ryan Shaw, Logan Wisnaukas(Not pictured: Will Reid, Brendan Mullally, and Grant Adams)

Whatta Day
11/6/2015

As Admiral McRaven stated in his now famous 2014 commencement address at The University of Texas at Austin, "make your bed every day, and you will have accomplished something."  At #8 is "Be your best in the darkest moment" and at #10... "Don't ever ring the bell."

Whatta day for JV football.   As the #2 seed, we headed to Sinclair Lane to face an undefeated Curley squad, and we got down early with a half time score of 10-0.

Curley receives 2nd half kick and takes it 80 yards.

Down 17-0.

Don't ring the bell boys.

Score.

Another stop.  Don't ring it.

Score, now down 17-14 with 5 left.

Goal line stop.

We get called for intentional grounding from our end zone... 19-14.

Kickoff and two plays later we strip the ball from Curley's tailback.  We eventually face 4th down from the Curley 20 with no timeouts.

Be the aggressor and call "trips."

Don't concede or ring the bell...

Brewer touchdown... JV Football Championship win, 20-19.

To have 15 year boys believe in something bigger then themselves.  To have them look beyond the circumstance. To be prepared like a champion.  Culture wins football games, not individuals.

Thank you Head Coach Alan Locey, and assistants Andrew Robinson, Nick Jones, Earl Smith, and Randy Johnson.  12 August 12th was along time ago.

"Don't ever ring the bell".


...............and now, let's move to the Charles street brawl.

Varsity soccer was on the brink of being dismissed by the stubborn Quakers when Josh Lurie scored with 42 second left in regulation.  OT and golden goals sessions await.

Mr. Andrew Brennan delivers a dagger and ignites a small Laker medley.

The Lake never rang the bell.

The soccer boys will play on Sunday, November 8 at 3:15pm at CCBC-Essex for the MIAA B Conference Championship.

Whatta day!

Boys' Latin Lakers MIAA B Conference Cross Country Champions 2015
11/5/2015


Congratulations to the Varsity Cross Country team and coaches for repeating as the MIAA B Conference Cross Country Champions 2015. Yesterday, the varsity race proved difficult with a strong charge from the John Carroll Patriots.  The Lakers won 45-50. The following boys paced the way:

#5  Garrett Voigt 18.00.8
#6  Ben Witham 18.03.5
#7  Matt Lugat 18.98.2
#13 Kahlan Lee Lermer 18.41.1
#14 Michael Ubriaco 18.42.7
#32 Mikey Petillo 19.37.6
#53 Walker Santos 1.06.50.3 (Top 5 runner comprise team score)

This senior class is very special.  They have accumulated a record of 30-3 in conference races in a 4 year span.  Overall, they have amassed 46 wins to only 4 losses.  In the fall of 2103, the varsity went undefeated in the conference, yet lost the team championship race by 1 point.  Since that loss, these seniors have led the program to 2 consecutive team championships and a 20-0 dual meet conference record.  Matt Lugat, Kahlan Lee-Lermer, Ryan Shaw, Tommy Esposito, Colin Amy, Will Page, Aaron Mendelson and Spencer Rees have represented BL, their families, their coaches and themselves with great character.  Moreover, their collective attitude and influence has filtered to the underclassmen. Again, thank you and congratulations to all the boys, Head Coach Lewis Scharff and the assistants --Andy Shilling and Jeffrey Hindes.

The JV team finished 3rd overall behind St. Mary's HS and John Carroll.  Congratulations to them for a great effort.

Volleyball & Cross-Country Updates
10/14/2015

The season has progressed quickly for the varsity volleyball boys.  As they face a tough battle today at Gilman at 5:45pm, the Lakers are currently 9-3  and second in the A Conference behind perennial volleyball power Loyola.  We head to "Roll Dons Roll" country this Friday for a 5:30pm match.  The boys are in action for two matches next week: October 19 at 5:45pm versus Spalding home and October 21 versus Mt. St. Joe at home, 5:45pm.

Playoffs begin on October 26 with the finals set for Friday, October 30 at Mt. St Joe.  New Head Coach Lon Engel has developed this team. The squad is very sound technically.  They are led by Michael Morseberger and Jimmy Magee.  Please come out and support the volleyball boys.   I'll inform everyone with playoff scenarios later in the month.

In Cross Country, Coach Lewis Scharff and his army of 40 runners have continued their success from last season's championship Cross Country run.  At 5-0 in conference, they are poised and confident as they push to the finish.  We host a conference meet today at 4:15pm versus AASC and Glenelg Country School.  We have two subsequent out of conference away meets to prepare for the Championships on Wednesday, November 4 at Stevenson University.

VARSITY FOOTBALL SUSPENDED DUE TO WEATHER WILL RESUME MONDAY OCT 12 @ BL 4:15
10/9/2015
BL Varsity Football and Varsity Soccer Remain Undefeated in Conference Play
10/8/2015

On Friday, October 9, the 3:45 varsity football game with John Carroll is a pivotal game pitting 2 undefeated teams ( in conference play) against each other.  JC has some offensive strength and talent at several positions.  Both teams like to throw the ball and rely on their stout defenses.  Special team play and valuing possession of the football will be critical.  This should be a great high school football game with many offensively gifted athletes on both sides. Go luck to Coach Schell and the boys.

Varsity soccer plays the defending B conference champion Severn Admirals at 4:15 on the top turf. The Lakers are currently 7-0 in conference play while the Admirals are 8-2.  Both teams are very good and solid at all positions.  A win tomorrow would certainly catapult the varsity soccer boys to the top and cement their position in league play.  This game definitely feels like a pivotal rivalry game.  And....it will be physical contest.

Come out to watch the boys.  ..Go Lakers....

Boys' Latin JV Baseball 2015
5/7/2015

Congratulations to the JV baseball team and coaches for a great season.  They ended their season yesterday with a home victory over SP.  The BL 14-4 win denied SP a place in the championship game.  Bennett Gaines pitched a complete game. We finished the year at 10-6 with splits versus CHC, Mt. St. Joe, McDonogh, and SP.  
Our baseball program has gained momentum over the last few years.  We once had 1 large MS team and 1 large US team.  Now , we have 4 teams with about 85 boys playing. The Lakers also have struggled mightily with the JV component.  Many of those games were very lopsided with 10 run losses. Our younger boys have turned a corner .
Thank you Jimmie Currie in Admissions, and MS coaches Demond Baine, Ryan Hopkins, Alan Locey, and Chris Maisel.  Thank you to the JV coaches: Head Coach Phil Sheehey, Asst, Jimmy Morrissey, and Asst Don Newman.  They have done a remarkable job.
If you see these boys around campus, please extend congratulations!

Varsity Sports Spring Update - "Down to the Wire"
4/26/2015

From Athletic Director Michael Thomas --

Varsity Golf
The Boys’ Latin Varsity Golf Team has struggled a bit this spring. Competing in a tough A conference has challenged this young group. The MIAA individual stroke play championships are Monday at Eagle Nest. We wish Seth Miller, Shane Kilberg, Drew Nicholas and the others the best of luck.

Varsity Tennis
Varsity Tennis has had a tremendous season thus far. They have beaten rival SP, Park, Friends, and Calvert Hall. They are coming off a tough 3-2 lost @ Loyola last week. Logan King, Jimmie Magee, and Joey Mallon are playing great tennis. We host two huge matches this week: Tuesday versus Gilman and Wednesday versus McD at 345p. Please come out to see these boys. They are a special group. Coach Magee is thrilled to have these boys and looks forward to great finish.

Varsity Baseball
The varsity boys are having a memorable season. Thus far, they are undefeated in MIAA B conference play at 12-0. The Laker baseball boys are approaching the start of playoffs on 8 May. There is a lot of baseball left. We host Park on Monday, and, on homecoming Friday, 1 May, we host a double header versus Pallotti @ 2p and 4p. Varsity baseball is led by Josh Smith, Dom Maggio, Skyler Morris, and Mark Lopez. This team has all the components. They are deep on the mound, great defensively, and have balanced hitting from 1-9. Please come out a support Coach Greenwell and his boys.

Varsity Lacrosse
As we continue to travel through the brutal A conference schedule, we stand in 3rd place with a record of 4-2. We host Spalding on Tuesday and the Dons of Blakefield on Homecoming Friday @ 4p. With Jack Pezzula in goal, Myles Cohen, Matt Sacks, Dylan Gaines, and Andrew Murrow defending, we have shown the ability to be stingy. Devin Shewell, Logan Wisnauskas, Matt Branau, Luke Shilling and Brendan Mullaly are potent. All everything attackman Patrick Spencer is remarkably special. If we get solid contributions from the midfield, good goaltending, and possessions from the X men Charlie Hughes and Jake Glatz, Coach Shriver’s boys have a shot to go deep. Enjoy the ride for the final push to May.

Boys' Latin Varsity Basketball defeats Curley BL 108 C 59
2/4/2015

Boys' Latin 108
Archbishop Curley 59

Boys' Latin had an explosive night offensively with several players shooting the ball exceptionally well in a 108-59 win against Archbishop Spalding.  After the 1st quarter it was just a 7 point game after both teams started the game off hot.  Boys' Latin had a 7 point advantage after the 1st quarter.  BL opened up the lead more in the second quarter outscoring Curely 31-20, taking a 53-35 lead into the locker room at halftime.  The third quarter was back and forth without either team really gaining any ground though BL did manage to up their advantage slightly to 22 points with a 75-53 lead at then end of three.  But that is when the skies opened up for Boys' Latin and it seemed like everything they through at the basket was going in.  Curley did apply some full court pressure in the fourth quarter that BL handled without too many problems and they were able to blow the game wide open scoring 33 points in the quarter while holding Curley to just 6, giving BL the 108-59 victory.  Senior Blair Brooks was on fire all night connecting on 8 of his 12 three point attempts and finishing with a game high and personal career high of 35 points.  Junior Kodye Pugh had another outstanding night despite getting plenty of scoring help and finished with 24 points.  Senior Patrick Spencer had an all around great night notching a triple double with 15 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.  Sophomore Brandon Brasher, while not scoring tonight at the clip he normally does did an outstanding job defensively on multi-sport star Costes holding him scoreless in the first half and to just 7 for the game.  The stat of the night for BL though that made the coaching staff very happy was the 42 field goals for the team 32 assists.  It was the the all around team play that contributed so greatly to the scoring outburst.  Snowden led Curely with 18 points while Wilson added 14

Varsity Hockey BL 6-4 Over Loyola to Secure a Spot in the Playoffs
1/30/2015

Congratulations to Varsity Ice Hockey on their 6-4 win yesterday.  With 3 regular season games remaining, the Lakers have secured a spot in the playoffs.

Loyola jumped out to quick 1-0 lead and added another goal early in the second to make it a 2-0 lead.  Corey Sekulow scored our first goal, then it became the Colton Haugh show.  Colton reeled off 5 straight to include the game tying, go head, and empty net insurance goals.  Chris Walker had 2 assists.  Joey Celentano was remarkable particularly in the final period.  Joey finished with 43 saves.

Congratulations again to coaches Maisel, Maisel and Ubriaco for finding the right formulae.  Next up, SP on Monday @ Patterson Park  @ 5:30p.

The Boys' Latin wrestling team took on the Calvert Hall Cardinals this past Tuesday, which proved to be a real "gut check" for the Lakers. With 5 starters missing from the lineup due to injury and illness, the Lakers were forced to employ an old, time- tested, athletic ploy. Simply put...the "Next Man Up" tactic was put to test. And what a job the "next man up" wrestlers did. None more, well executed, than Freshman Mac Alban's varsity debut. Mac was asked to forfeit his junior league eligibility to "take one for the team" and in the 2nd bout of the night, Mac ignited the Laker faithful with a monster first period pin, and set the stage by giving the rest of the Lakers plenty of momentum to help clip the Cardinal's wings, as the BL wrestlers won the dual meet by a score of 48-26.
On Saturday, the Lakers took their wrestling show to the Nation's Capitol to compete in a ten team duals at St. John's high school. The Lakers maintained their next man up mentality, throwing in a hockey player or two, and gritted their teeth while blazing through their pool, defeating their namesake Washington Latin, 75-3. In the most exciting dual of the day, with the meet still very much undecided, Boys' Latin's rookie wrestler, Brandon "Teddy Graham" Kagen made an amazing come from behind third period pin, while trailing by a bunch of points. Not surprising that Teddy Graham is now being called Grizzly Bear Kagen. Brandon's pin sealed the victory for the Lakers, helping them defeat St. Vincent Pallotti, 44-25. The Lakers then made quick work of St. Anselm's Abbey, winning 76-6, then were able to finish first in their respective pool by beating Bullis Prep by a score of 51-29. The win over Bullis set the stage for the Capital Duals championship match against home standing St. John's, who won their pool by defeating Randolph Macon Academy, The Potomac School, Mercersburg Academy, and Calvert Hall. In a not so see-saw battle, the Cadets of St. John's put an abrupt end to the Lakers hope of winning the team title, beating the Lakers, 60-18. Although the Lakers took home the runner up trophy, they hold their heads high, still believing in the "Next Man Up" philosophy!
Next team up for the Lakers will be a home match against Archbishop Spalding on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Loch Raven Duals Jan 9 & 10
1/12/2015

The Boys' Latin wrestling team spent the weekend at the Loch Raven Duals, wrestling 7 duals meets throughout Friday and Saturday. Overcoming numerous injuries and having to forfeit a couple of weight classes, the Lakers did their best Raven's imitation and overcame much adversity by winning their first 3 matches Friday night, defeating host school Loch Raven, North Harford, and Pikesville. On Saturday, the still, Raven like Lakers, came out strong, upsetting Manchester Valley in their first dual of the morning, extending their season long dual meet record to 10-1. Unfortunately, the toll of injuries and forfeits caught up to the grapplers, as they took one on the "chin strap", losing to eventual champion, Marriotts Ridge. Dulaney was up next, and in a classic thriller, the Lakers came from behind with two late pins to take a 42-36 lead with one match to go. Unfortunately, the Lakers could not fill the weight class and had to forfeit, allowing the Dulaney Lions to tie the match at 42. At the scorers table the tie breaker system did not fare well for the good guys. After assessing that both teams had each won 7 bouts and each had 7 pins, the criteria was finally resolved by which team had scored the most first period points throughout the contest. Criteria "H" had Dulaney with 12 first period points and the Lakers with 8. Tough way to decide the match, but somebody had to win. The Lakers bounced back in their next match, taking out Towson High Generals, and finishing with a 5-2 record, pushing the wrestling Lakers to an impressive,11-3 overall dual meet season with the Calvert Hall Cardinals coming to Lakerland on Tuesday, Jan. 13, at 4:00 P.M.

V Basketball BL 93 Chapelgate 67
1/8/2015

Junior Kodye Pugh had a huge night going for 37 points and 16 rebounds in a home conference win over Chapelgate Christian Academy.  Pugh missed his first two shots of the game but caught fire after that and stayed hot all night.  Senior Patrick Spencer had a phenomenal game handling the Chapelgate pressure defense, distributing the ball and adding 22 points of his own.  Freshman Jaylin Andrews chipped in another 15 to help keep the Lakers rolling.  But the big time performances tonight came from Sophomore Brandon Bradsher and Senior Jerel Archer who had the arduous task of defending CCA senior sharpshooter, Matt Frierson and senior guard Malik Grandy.  Frierson and Grandy scored 23 and 17 respectively but the really had to earn each of those points as Bradsher and Archer worked all night to lock down the two dynamic scorers.

Boys' Latin capped off a great holiday season by winning the Liberty Holiday Tournament Championship (Liberty Division) giving them a second tournament championship in two weeks.  BL beat Arundel HS in the opening round and Liberty HS defeated Rockville HS to set up the match up in the championship game.  Liberty came out hot and took an early lead on Boys' Latin going up 7-2.  But BL eventually got into a groove and their pressure proved to be too much for the Carroll County team who played hard all night.  Junior Kodye Pugh and Senior Blair Brooks combined for 38 points and Senior Patrick Spencer once again provided the court leadership dishing out 10 assists in the championship after dropping 12 assists in the opening round game and nabbing 24 rebounds combined in the two games.  Pugh was dominant throughout the tournament as he has been the entire month of December.  Pugh had a total of 42 points, 18 rebounds and 7 blocked shots in both games of the Liberty tourney and was once again named tournament MVP as he was two weeks earlier in the Laker Invitational Tournament.  Joining Pugh on the all tournament team was Blair Brooks who is playing outstanding basketball since returning from ACL surgery in June.  Brooks combined for 26 points and 6 steals in the two games.  BL now gets a couple days to relax as they prepare to play local rival Gilman on Saturday at BL.

Boys' Latin Varsity Wrestling Travels to Hanover Pa.
12/21/2014

The Boys' Latin wrestling team traveled to Hanover, Pa. on Saturday to compete in the Hanover Snacktown Duals.
The Lakers jumped out to a fast start doubling up the score on Harrisburg High School of Pa., 48-24. Next up, the Lakers dueled with Washington High School from Charles County, winning 45-21. The host school, Hanover High School was next on the grapplers' menu, and the dual meet was one for the record books. Both teams had their plates full, as they battled to a 36-36 tie. However, by virtue of the rule book's criteria "d", the visiting Lakers were awarded the dual meet victory for having won more matches during the meet. Boys' Latin won 8 matches to Hanover's 6 matches, which sealed the victory for BL and advanced them to the championship round to square off against the Westminster Owls of Westminster, Maryland. In a see-saw battle between the two teams, the Lakers faded down the stretch and, eventually, succumbed to the Owl's hoot, losing 49-30, taking home the runner-up trophy. All in all, it was a great start to the Holiday Season for the wrestling Lakers.

Announcement -- New Head Varsity Lacrosse Coach Named
12/1/2014


Coach Brian Farrell Will Lead Boys’ Latin Varsity Lacrosse Team Commencing in Fall 2015

The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland (Boys’ Latin) announced today that Brian Farrell, Class of 2006, will take over as Head Coach of its varsity lacrosse team at the commencement of the Lakers’ 2015-2016 lacrosse season.

Upon the retirement announcement of fabled Boys’ Latin Head Varsity Lacrosse Coach Bob Shriver earlier this year (June 2014), Boys’ Latin conducted an exhaustive, national recruiting search.  From a candidate pool that included dozens of exemplary candidates including high school, collegiate and professional coaches, Brian Farrell quickly emerged as the unanimous choice to lead the lacrosse program upon Coach Shriver’s retirement.

“Brian Farrell has the experience both of lacrosse and as a person to be tremendously successful in leading our program,” states Christopher Post, Headmaster of Boys’ Latin. “Brian is an incredibly humble and hard-working person, who values athletics as a classroom for the life lessons that it teaches.  In Brian, we have found someone who has not just performed at the highest levels, who is a teacher of the game and who has the potential to grow with our School, our students and the program.  We couldn’t be more excited.”

"As a graduate of Boys’ Latin (2006) and the University of Maryland (2011), Farrell’s list of accomplishments in the lacrosse arena, as well as football and basketball, are unparalleled,” stated current Coach Bob Shriver.  “Additionally, Brian has an uncanny ability to display the most creative approach to playing and winning the game.  Brian has been a terrific lacrosse, football, and basketball player his entire life, having come from a family of accomplished sportsmen.”

Farrell’s father, Mike Farrell, a National Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee and University of Maryland Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee, has served as Farrell’s role model, as evidenced by Brian Farrell’s accomplishments as a player during his Boys’ Latin tenure, including:  United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association All-American Lacrosse player; Team Captain in football, basketball and lacrosse; and Towson Athlete of the Year.

Farrell’s University of Maryland Men’s Lacrosse tenure showcased him as a member of the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Team, two-time member of Student Athletic Advisory Council, two-time Team Captain, two-time United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Scholar All-American, three-time United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association All-American, Atlantic Coastal Conference tournament Champion and Charles P. McCormick Award for the Baltimore area athlete who contributed the most to athletics at the University of Maryland.

“Following a legendary four  years as a top defenseman for the University of Maryland’s lacrosse team, Farrell played for some of lacrosse’s greatest coaching minds in Dave Cottle and John Tillman.  Brian then returned to coach for the University of Maryland and Tillman,” states Coach Shriver.  “Currently, Farrell serves as Salisbury School’s (Salisbury, CT) Assistant Lacrosse Coach and Defensive Coordinator under the tutelage of nationally renown Bobby Wynne, one of the best coaches in the history of U.S. lacrosse.”

“The retirement of Coach Shriver, Boys’ Latin’s Head Varsity Lacrosse  Coach for over 36 years is bittersweet,“ states Christopher Post.   “We are forever grateful for the contributions that he’s made to the Boys’ Latin community, including his invaluable assistance in the search for our next Head Coach.  In bringing Brian Farrell into the Boys’ Latin community, we are confident that we have the absolute best coach to continue the legacy of Coach Shriver.”

“It‘s a great honor to have been chosen as the next Head Coach of the Boys’ Latin lacrosse program,” states Brian Farrell. “To coach the sport I love at my alma mater is a dream come true. Boys’ Latin is a top tier school with a fine history of success in lacrosse and especially in building outstanding young men of character. I am committed to continuing the proud traditions that Boys’ Latin has established over many years.  I am humbled by the trust placed in me, and I’d like to thank the Headmaster and the rest of the search committee for giving me this opportunity.”

Important Dates and Information for Upper School Athletics October 9, 2014
10/9/2014

As we approach the conclusion of fall sports and the start of winter athletics, I offer this brief summary of the athletic campaign thus far.

Varsity Cross Country

Coach Scharff and his boys are a determined bunch. As of this writing, they are undefeated in B conference @ 13-0. Cole Coffay, Matt Lugat, Garret Voigt, Mikey Petillo, Ben Witham, Michael Ubriaco, and Kahlan Lee Lermer have shown great effort. All the boys have been terrific teammates and competitors.
On Tuesday, 14 October we host Key School, Oldfields, and St. Mary’s @ 4p. STM is also the only other undefeated team in our conference. Please come out to support our wonderful runners. They are a special group. This meet will prove crucial. 

Varsity and JV Football
 
Varsity Head Coach Ritchie Schell’s team has shown great toughness and fire. They enter the weekend @ 4-1. Junior quarterback Logan Wisnauskus, a receiving corps of Gavin Callahan, Dylan Gaines, Davy Lizana, Ryan Shaw, and Braden Atkinson, and senior halfback Jerel Archer have been offensive stalwarts. We have averaged 34.6 points per game. Defensively, Preston Waters, Luke Brown, Rocco Bruno, Stephon Hill, Devin Shewell, Anthony Wyler, Billy Wingo, Michael Shortt, and linebacker Gavin Howell have proved stout. They are a tough, disciplined defensive group that can lead us to a B conference championship. The boys are away until 24 October when the highly ranked Friars of Curley infiltrate J. Duncan Smith field. The following Friday, 31 October, is our rivalry game home versus SP @ 230p.
The JV football team has played very hard under the direction of Head Coach Alan Locey. They suffered a close conference loss versus St. Mary’s last week as they move towards the heart of their B schedule. Good luck to the JV boys.

Varsity and JV Volleyball

Coach Haugh’s team is primed for a late season run. They are currently is second place behind an undefeated Gilman. The volleyballers are led by Avery Engel, Colton Haugh, Joe Santangelo, and Casey McNulty. With Coach Haugh providing the inspiration and Coach Engel supplying the tactical knowledge, we look forward to their continued success. This group is fun, entertaining and highly skilled.
The JV team is also doing very well. With a 9-2 record, they also trail a talented undefeated Gilman squad. Noah Snyder, Jimmy Magee, and Bryce Gothier lead this wonderful group of Lakers.

Varsity and JV Soccer

Our young and inexperienced varsity team has struggled at times, yet they continue to improve.  Goalkeeper Drew Gray has been the foundation of the defense and the team’s inspiration. Nick Malinowski, Dylan Kowalewski, and Brendan Mullally infuse the back line. Alex Moore, Hayden Kovinsky, Josh Lurie, Elliot King, and Garrett Glaeser serve in the middle of the field. We have had a difficult time scoring the soccer ball during the first half of the season. We currently are locked in 6th place @ 3-5 in conference and look to secure a top six playoffs position.  The coaches and boys are continually looking to find the right mix of defensive strength and offensive punch. They will indeed find the best formula.
The JV squad has played very hard. Coach Celenza’s team sits in second in the JV B conference behind a tough Park squad. Their second half of the season gets underway next week.

Varsity Soccer Gains Another Win
10/8/2014

The Lakers soccer team added to their plus column with a win against Annapolis Area Christian School on Friday the 3rd of October.  Boys Latin used dominating possession in the first half to control the game but were unable to dent the old onion bag.  In the final third of the second half, Elliott King drove around the corner of the AACS defense and slid the ball to Hayden Kovinsky, who carried the ball into the net.  On the other side Drew Grey had a clean sheet for the 1 - 0 victory. The Lakers take on Gerstell for the rematch on Wednesday at 4 PM in Eldersburg.

Varsity Soccer Edged out by St Peter and Paul
10/3/2014

 

On the 1st of October, the Laker varsity soccer team trekked across the Bay Bridge to Easton for their encounter with St. Peter and Paul.  The Lakers controlled the first half with some crisp passing but were unable to dent the St. Peter and Paul goal.  Ethan McCann let loose a cracker that found both the crossbar and sidebar but did not go in.  St. Peter and Paul created problems with their free kicks finding unmarked runners.  Unfortunately, a St. Peter and Paul free kick was able to create a goal in the second half.  Despite immense pressure, the Lakers were not able to get the equalizer and returned with a 1 - 0 loss. On Friday, the Lakers will be in action against Annapolis Area Christian School.

Varsity Soccer defeats Friends BL 2 - Fr 1
9/16/2014

On Monday, the Lakers hosted the Quakers from Friends in a varsity soccer match.  Friends returned most of their players from last year and were one of the clear favorites for the league title this year.  The match started out with the Quakers controlling play while the Lakers worked on maintaining their defensive shape.  As the Lakers gained confidence, they started creating chances.  The Lakers took the lead when Elliott King fooled the Quakers with  a quick throw-in to  Brendan Mullally.  Brendan crossed the ball to a streaking Josh Lurie for the first goal of the game.  After the goal, the defense midfield of Josh and Hayden Kovinsky obstructed the Quaker offense by strong marking of the Quaker midfield. In the second half, the Lakers continued to  disrupt the Quaker offense so they turned to long passes to breaking strikers.  The Lakers back line of Dylan Kowalewski , Brendan, Alex Moore, Regan Chasney and Nick Malinowski stayed very strong and denied the Quakers any easy scoring opportunities.  Drew Gray posted his first clean sheet with a dozen saves.  As the clock wound down, Josh Lurie settled the contest by dribbling by their goalie and finishing a 45 yard shot.The Lakers are back in action against Park on Wednesday at 4PM.

Varsity Soccer - BL 2 Gerstell 3
9/15/2014

On Friday, the Lakers hosted the defending league champions, Gerstell, in the opening league game for both teams.  Gerstell had a new goaltender who efficiently patrolled the goal line and came off his line to cut off any straight through passes.  Gerstell opened the scoring with some miscommunication in the back line of the Lakers then they broke through again 3 minutes later.  Down 2 to nothing, the Lakers worked the ball to the corner where Elliott King slipped by one of the Gerstell players and delivered the ball to Brandon Mullaley on the six, where he finished to bring the Lakers within one at the break. Six minutes into the second half, the Lakers tied the game on a flick by Cole Whitehurst.  The second half continued the same pattern of the first half - Boys Latin controlling the ball and moving it upfield while Gerstell relied on counter attacks off long passes.  The decisive play game with about five minutes to go as Gerstell's top striker found himself with the ball and then chipped the ball into the back of the net to win the game.  Monday, the Lakers meet Friends who were the favorites to win the league this year.

Boys’ Latin names Evan Wilson as Head Varsity Golf Coach
9/11/2014

The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland announced today that Evan Wilson is the new Head Varsity Golf Coach at Boys’ Latin.  Coach Wilson has been a fixture in our upper school as an adviser and teacher of honors geometry, pre-calculus and applied calculus.  Additionally, Evan has been our Assistant Varsity Golf Coach for six seasons.
As we continue to embrace the traditional model of teacher/coach, Coach Wilson’s selection was easy.  Having Evan teach and interact with the boys during the academic day and then coach them in the afternoon serves as a winning equation.  Evan will continue the wonderful work that was established by his predecessor Mason Champion.

BL Varsity Soccer Dulaney 4 BL 1
9/9/2014

On Monday, the Lakers Varsity soccer team hosted the Dulaney Lions soccer team which is one of the stronger teams in Baltimore County. Both teams came out trying to control possession of the ball, when five minutes into the game Andrew Brennan flew by the Dulaney back line who tripped him in the penalty box. Elliott King converted the penalty kick to give the Lakers a quick 1 – 0 lead. The goal energized the Lions and they equalized five minutes later. As the Lakers extended their offense to create a scoring chance, the Lions regained possession and counter attacked leading to their second goal.
The game produced numerous chances for both teams but no additional scoring till 12 minutes remaining when a Dulaney striker aggressively went for a ball and pushed it through the back line . The striker then finished with an excellent strike to the far corner of the net for a 3 to 1 lead. Dulaney completed the scoring with two minutes to go with their fourth goal.
The first league game is on Friday at 4PM against Gerstell, the reigning champions of the league last year.

Boys' Latin Varsity Soccer Vs St Paul's 9/2/14 BL 0 SP 8
9/3/2014

On Tuesday, the Lakers Varsity soccer team hosted the St Paul's team, comprised of many of the players who led St Paul's to the finals of the A Conference last year. The game started in a high spirited manner but then the quick play and movement of the St Paul's players created some good opportunities. They took advantage of some unexpected bounces and deflections to forge a half time lead.In the second half, the Lakers created some offensive thrusts but were unable to score. The Lakers reserves got the opportunity to join the fray in the later part of the half. This experience should prove invaluable as they had the challenge of competing against two of the stars of the A conference – Nate Hall and Juwan Kearson. Our reserves held them in check but learned in the late stages of the half how dangerous the two could be as both Hall and Kearson contributed to the last three goals of the 8 – 0 defeat.The next game is a home game versus Dulaney on Monday the 8th of September at 4 PM.

Boys' Latin Varsity Soccer vs Gilman
9/1/2014

Thursday afternoon, the Lakers Varsity Soccer team ventured over to Gilman to take on the A conference Greyhounds.   With the loss of eighteen seniors and top players from last years team, the first half was looked at as a learning experience but it turned out to be a significant confidence builder as the game went back and forth for the first 35 minutes.  Some communication breakdown allowed the Greyhounds to pounce and provide Gilman with a 1 – 0 lead at the half.  The Lakers charged back in the opening minutes of the second half and put good pressure on the Greyhounds which resulted with Josh Laurie being pulled down in the box.  Elliott King finished the resulting penalty kick to bring the game to a draw.
With the goal, the games competitive spirit picked up significantly.  Both teams had numerous chances that could have led to a breakthrough.  The most effective play from the Lakers was a cross from Regan Chasney that Andrew Brennan almost finished with a diving header.  Unfortunately, Gilman was able to convert a free kick with about four minutes before the end and followed two minutes later with another successful free kick.
The performance of Drew Grey probably exemplified the whole team.  Drew had not played goalie in over three years but with the graduation of both keepers from last year, Drew stepped up and committed to developing his skills.  His play during the game was excellent especially his ability to anticipate long through balls and neutralize the Gilman attack.
The next game for The Varsity soccer team will be on Tuesday at home versus St. Pauls.

Boys' Latin 2014 Graduate Bennett Wisner Continues Golf Career
6/10/2014

Over the past couple of weeks, recent graduate Bennett Wisner has put an exclamation point on what has been an already spectacular junior golf career.
Just a couple of days before graduation, Bennett competed in the Maryland State Golf Association's 93rd Men's Amateur Championship, held on the historic East Course of Baltimore Country Club.  He became eligible for the event by placing 5th out of over 90 golfers at a qualifier in early May.  Thursday's portion of the tournament saw 133 of the top amateur golfers in the state competing in stroke play, with the low 31 scores advancing to the match play competition.   Bennett and his caddie, Coach Evan Wilson, drew up and executed a conservative game plan, knowing that the tournament could not be won on Thursday, but certainly could be lost.  After 18 holes of focused and precise play, Wisner found himself with a score card totaling 71 strokes, good enough for a tie for 9th place and a ticket to Friday's morning round.  It should be noted that just 2 other junior golfers made it this far.
In the opening round of the match play, Bennett would be pitted against his friend and future teammate, Brian McCormick, a rising senior at Loyola University.  Brian's excellent short game, combined with a series of no less than 5 cruel lip-outs found Bennett down early, with the deficit growing to 4 holes by the time they reached the 13th tee.  All this time, the young Laker never got down on himself and never gave up.  Bennett would manage to rally, winning 3 of the next 5 holes, taking the match to the 18th until a bad bounce found him unable to extend the match any further.  The loss was bittersweet, as it alleviated the Wisners from having to decide whether Bennett would attend graduation or try to notch what would be the most prestigious victory of his career.
Three days later, perhaps still feeling a bit unsatisfied after Friday's close loss, Bennett set foot on the US Naval Academy Golf Course.  Now a Laker Alum, and with fellow classmate Randy Wells on the bag, Wisner teed it up in an attempt to qualify for the US Junior Amateur.  This event is no doubt the most prestigious junior golf event in the world, with past champions such as , Jordan Spieth ('09, '11), David Duval ('89), Johnny Miller ('64) and Tiger Woods ('91, '92, '93).  Rounds of 71 and 70 were good enough to lock up one of the two qualifying spots and start the Wisners packing their bags for a trip to Texas.
Bennett wanted express his "gratitude and appreciation to everyone in the Boys' Latin community and more importantly to God, for giving him the opportunity to play golf at this level."
Next on the tournament schedule is The Maryland Open Championship, July 14-16th at Lakewood Country Club, followed by the US Junior Amateur Championship hosted by The Club at Carlton Woods (Nicklaus Course), Woodlands Texas, July 21-26th.

With a 10.5 -10.5 tie versus MSJ’s Gaels on Wednesday, our boys were knocked from playoff contention.  The following is from Coach Champion:

Boys' Latin vs Mt. St. Joseph - May 7, 2014

Bennett Wisner took a deep breath as he stood over his birdie putt on the final green at the Suburban Club.  A gentle breeze blew as the clouds overhead parted enough to reveal a golden skyline.  The Laker Senior and Co-Captain had won the front side of his match and now stood all square on the back half and one up for the total contest.  His putt was of considerable distance - measuring roughly twenty-five feet in total length; and of significant complexity - including left to right movement of four feet.  His journey to this point had been a remarkable one - and had started seven years earlier as a dream of a wide-eyed eleven year old.  Since then, Wisner's passion, integrity and determination had fueled a magnificent rise to the top of his sport - one that included numerous championship victories and an overly-impressive competitive resume.  Awaiting him for his next stage of life is Loyola University, where he will play Divison I Golf for the Greyhounds. Most assuredly, this young man's ascent and associated accomplishments have been truly remarkable; and he stands to depart from Boys' Latin having won the respect, admiration and trust of his fellow teammates, students, and coaches.  All that being said, he still had one last putt.  His stroke was steady and well-paced.  The ball rolled forward on its intended line.  Wisner lifted his gaze as the putt reached its point of break.  On-lookers raised their eyebrows and leaned forward.  The break took the ball left to right - and the pace began to slow as it reached its destination.  Gasps were heard and tension was heightened.  Wisner stood tall from his previously bent posture - and watched, along with all others, the ball disappear into the cup with its final rotation.  Cheers.  Hugs.  Tears... Victory.

Boys' Latin hosted Mt. St. Joseph at the Suburban Club in the final match of the 2014 Season.  Fresh off their strong showing and halved-match against Calvert Hall the day prior, the Lakers were overly-enthused about the prospects of facing-off against the Gaels.  Rain had blanketed the course earlier in the day, but had given way to a cloudy and calm afternoon that enabled the contest to be played on schedule.  Parents of outgoing Seniors were honored ahead of the competition in an annual tradition that never fails to warm the heart and inspire.  And special recognition was offered to Coach Champion's father - who was in attendance for the match, and who has served his son as a role model throughout his life.  Team photos were taken for the yearbook; and plenty of affirmation and kind words were exchanged amongst the broader Laker Golf family.

The first four tee shots struck by Boys' Latin were from Seniors.  Following Wisner was Randy Wells, fellow Co-Captain Dylan Watts, and Drew Miller.  It's worthy of note that Wells' offering was a monstrous blast - and sailed through the fairway's bottleneck with remarkable power and strength.  Wells collected valuable points through play that was punctuated with poise and grace - and continued to represent an on-course presence that is reflective of consummate professionalism.

Dylan Watts grinded through a hard-fought afternoon and refused to give-in when the chips were down.  The ever-affable team leader, produced a fine showing on the day, and dug deep within himself to stand tough against a formidable St. Joseph opponent.

After winning the front side, Drew Miller fell victim early in the second half to a Gael who had caught fire.  Interacting with his coach with four holes remaining, Miller quipped "I'm one down and I've kind of lost the momentum," to which his coach responded simply "Well, get it back.  These are the last four holes of this match.  Make 'em count."  Miller smiled, nodded, and obliged.  By the conclusion of that remaining stretch of holes, he had overcome the deficit, taken a lead and closed out the match - winning the second half and total match in the process.  A scrapper 'til the end, Drew Miller truly knows how to get the job done.

Seth Miller competed in the number five slot - and collected a valuable point early in the match for winning the front side. Working alongside friend and fellow Junior, Shane Kilberg, Miller combined effective course management with considerable quality of ball-striking in order to negotiate his way around the Suburban linksland.  Miller earned an additional half point for splitting the total match.
For his efforts in partnering with Miller, six-man Shane Kilberg helped the Lakers earn a valuable team point victory.  Kilberg was consistently presented with lies and angles that carried their share of challenges - and yet he continually produced efforts that were inspirational for their execution and commitment.  Kilberg works with diligence and discipline - and carries himself with integrity and intention.  His gritty work ethic and his commitment to excellence are both appreciated and highly-valued by his fellow teammates.
At day's end, the Lakers produced a fine showing against a highly-talented St. Joseph squad - and for having done so, they earned a halve against the Gaels.

Following the conclusion of play, teams shook hands and broke bread.  Smiles and laughter filled the evening air.  Photos were taken, stories recounted, and hugs exchanged.  And as the sun finally set at Suburban, it took with it the conclusion of the 2014 season.  It was one that found a group of boys living life, learning lessons, growing in friendship, and bonding in spirit.  Golf had been a vehicle of impact for their journey; and lives had been served through its truth.  And at the end of the day, that's what it's all about.

Varsity Lacrosse
On senior day yesterday, the varsity defeated rival SP 18-12. The following is from Varsity Sports Network:

In the end, it was too much Shack Stanwick for No. 2 St. Paul's School to handle when the Boys' Latin School lacrosse star scored three goals and added six assists in the No. 1 Lakers' 18-12 triumph Tuesday afternoon at Duncan Smith Field in Roland Park.

The senior headed to Johns Hopkins University had plenty of help, mind you, including a big boost from face-off specialist Hunter Moreland in helping BL finish its second consecutive unbeaten regular season and earn its 35th victory in its last 36 games.

The Lakers (16-0, 9-0 MIAA A) are the again the odds-on favorite to claim their first MIAA A crown since 2006. Boys' Latin missed a chance at a crown and the mythical national title last year, losing to Loyola Blakefield in the title match at Unitas Stadium.

Tuesday, the top-seeded Lakers return to the U where they will play McDonogh School-St. Mary's winner in a semifinal contest. The Eagles and Saints meet in the opening round Friday afternoon in Owings Mills.

St. Paul's (11-6, 7-2 MIAA A) will enjoy a bye as the No. 2 seed. The Crusaders will meet the Calvert Hall College-Gilman School survivor from Friday's other quarterfinal match.

The Lakers were sizzling early Tuesday in beating St. Paul's for the fourth year in a row, jumping out to a 12-3 halftime advantage fueled by Moreland's domination at the face-off X and Stanwick's eagle-eye feeds.

Having jumped ahead, 7-2, after the opening period, BL scored five of the game's next six goals with Moreland winning six consecutive draws — and even scoring once just seconds after winning a face-off — while Stanwick notched a goal and an assist.

"Just like the game against Gilman (a 15-9 victory last Friday), everyone was ready to play," said Stanwick, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the nation. "We got off to a good start early, but credit St. Paul's for making it a close game in the fourth quarter."

The second half was more to the Crusaders' liking, considering they outscored the Lakers 9-6 during that span. "I think they scored seven or eight goals just in the fourth quarter (actually six, to the Lakers' three)," Stanwick added. "I think we might end up seeing them again, and hopefully, we can stop that from happening again."

As is usually the case with St. Paul's, senior attackman Mikey Wynne was its most dangerous weapon. The Notre Dame recruit scored the first two goals of the final period to finish with a team-high five (and one assist) as the visitors cut a nine-goal deficit to five with five minutes remaining.

The bottom line, though, was Moreland's success, especially before halftime. The Hopkins-bound star did not take as many draws in the second half because Lakers coach Bob Shriver chose to rest the senior's gimpy knee.

"Fifteen of 17 (faceoffs) Hunter won in the second half," St. Paul's coach Rick Brocato said. "When you give a team like that that many possessions, they're going to score. But he's been doing that all year. We didn't have an answer for him."

Stanwick's fellow attackmen Patrick Spencer, Colin Chell and Devin Shewell combined for four goals and three assists while seniors Keegan O'Connor (3 goals) and Tally Bruno (2) led the charge from the midfield.

The Lakers will play on Tuesday, May 13 at 5:30pm in Towson University’s Unitas Stadium. We will play the winner of #4 seed McDonogh vs. #5 seed St. Mary’s HS.
#1 Lakers
#2 St. Paul’s

Varsity Tennis Qualifies for MIAA "A" Conference Championship
5/5/2014

Head Coach Jim Magee ’74 has lots of good news to report:
"The varsity tennis team qualified for the MIAA "A" Conference Team Championship Tournament for the 1st time since 2003! The tournament is set for May 12-14 @ 3:30p at McDonogh School. The varsity individual’s tournament will be May 19-21 at McDonogh.  The varsity team has an overall record of 6-4 (.600) - the 3rd best record of BL's 6 "A" Conference Varsity teams for 2013-2014.

“The Varsity Tennis' success deserves recognition for being among the top performers of many excellent BL teams and for representing Boys' Latin School so well in the Baltimore Tennis community. I can't say enough about how supportive Michael Thomas ’87 is of BL's Tennis Program! BL's Tennis Families, players, and coaches are grateful and fortunate in receiving exceptional resources, guidance, and encouragement from Michael.

"Varsity Tennis is led this year by three outstanding senior captains: Will Parriott ’14, Daniel Baker ’14 and Jack Metzger’14. The team will graduate six seniors this year. This year’s team has three singles spots filled by 10th grader Joey Mallon ’16 in the #1 spot, 9th grader Jimmy Magee ’17 at #2 and 10th grader Brett Blum ’16 at #3. The doubles teams were Will Parriott and Daniel Baker at #1, Jack Metzger and Robert Rice’15/Andrew Grauel '14 at #2. Parriott and Baker in the #1 Doubles position have a league season record of 7-1!!

"The starters were strongly supported by Dylan Hazlett ’14, Griffin McShane ’17, and Logan King ’15 whose roles as practice partners, match videographers, charters and analysts was invaluable!”

GO LAKERS!

Boys' Latin Baseball 2014
4/8/2014

Varsity Baseball (Head Coach Bill Greenwell)

The 2014 Lakers baseball team returns six starters that helped the 2013 team make it to the MIAA championship game. That experience, plus some talented newcomers should help the team have another successful season in 2014.

Two All Conference players return, Fred Bopst and Skyler Morris. Fred will pitch and play first base and Skyler will play shortstop and pitch. Fred and Skyler should be two of the best

pitchers in the league. Dom Maggio, at second base, and freshman third baseman Mark Lopez, round out the starting infield. Infield depth is provided by Blake Venick, Phillip Springer, and Bo Harchick. Harchick will also serve as a designated hitter.

Starters on the outfield are expected to be Michael Whitehurst, Sam Bowen, and Josh Smith, with Stephon Hill and Max Keefe backing up.

We have depth at the catcher position, with Parker Yablon starting, backed up by Whitehurst and Drew Gray.

The pitching staff, led by Bopst and Morris, will also feature Maggio, Lopez, and Liam Madden.

We have depth at every position, especially since we have several players that can play multiple positions. This year we also have more team speed than in recent years.

This year's team captains are Fred Bopst and Parker Yablon. Both are four year starters.

The team will go as far as our senior leadership takes us.

JV Baseball (Head Coach Phil Sheehey)

The JV Baseball Team enters its second season with expectations to compete for the JV championship and develop a large group of underclassmen baseball players. This year's team includes a number of returning starters and deep freshman talent. The team had an outstanding week in Florida with a 3-1 record which included wins of 20-0, 18-0, and 9-1. Sophomores Will Reid and Mark Gray will Captain the team and play a significant role in the infield. Sophomores Justin Ward, Tommy Esposito, Noah Labonte-Clark, Justin Smith, and Mitch Casper all return, bringing with them extensive experience from last year's JV Team. In addition to sophomore experience, the JV Lakers have some exceptional freshman talent, including pitcher/ infielder Zach Grace, catcher Matt Purnell, first baseman Michael Turton, and outfielders Desmond Banks and Marquise Washington. Infielder/ pitcher Bennett Gaines, pitcher JP Woodward and outfielder Ben Barton will also vie for time in Laker lineup. Rounding out the Lakers are DH/ infielder John Kunish, first baseman Jack Williams, utility infielder Luke Edwards, and outfielders Trey Burrell and Matt Singleton - Lunn.

MS A Baseball (Head Coach Ryan Hopkins)

This year’s team returns a solid group from last season’s successful campaign. Ned Ruffin, Seamus Cook, Travis Smith, Mitch Larrabee, and Jackson Gazin return from 2013 and will be looked on to lead our current squad. Max Mygatt will see significant time on the mound and Jackson’s younger brother Eric will be a key component of our up-the-middle defense.

Max Franklin and Max Gitlin will also see significant time this season. George Shriver, Mark Newman, and Joe Caiola will provide important depth to a roster without a superstar but loaded with solid baseball talent. Though playing an extremely difficult schedule against mainly “A” conference competition, this year’s squad is poised to build on the past success of our middle school program.

MS B Baseball (Head Coach Demond Baine)

The middle school B baseball team is led by two 8th graders, Luke Levendusky and Hunter Isaac. The thirteen member team maintains a competitive edge as a small ball team with aggressive base running.

Varsity Cross Country

Freshmen Garrett Voigt, senior Travis White, George Green, and Cole Coffay led this group to the regular season championship.  All four were selected All MIAA, while finishing in the top ten during the B Conference championship run.  Although the team fell 1 point shy of the team championship @ Oregon Ridge, Coach Scarff's' boys showed great metal and determination. Their final record was 9-1.

Varsity Volleyball

Coach Haugh and his boys had a very successful campaign.  Senior Jack Metzger and junior MVP Avery Engel led this squad to the A conference playoffs.

Varsity Soccer

An annual contender for the B conference championship, the Lakers were upset in the final game by upstart Gerstell.  This team was led by All MIAA performers seniors Hunter Moreland, Brian Becker, Danny Shaifer, and junior Drew Shaifer.  They finished with a record of 10-3-1 in conference and 12-6-1 overall.

A wonderful story about Boys' Latin Alum - The Stanwick Family
2/20/2014

Pressbox recently posted this story which is just as much about family and character as it is about lacrosse.  "The eight Stanwick siblings share a strong work ethic and have been standouts on Baltimore lacrosse fields for more than two decades. ... When it comes to their mettle as lacrosse players and as people, the Stanwicks are all in. They all have a relentless drive -- academically and athletically -- to be the best. ... You know what you are going to get with them. They work hard and they are selfless, and they set the tone in practice. I run into them at Starbucks. They are all super nice people and fun to be around. They walk the talk."  Steele credits his parents for their children's success, and said "It's about how you treat people. Skills and athleticism will only take you so far." Congratulations to BL senior Shack who is ranked No. 1 lacrosse recruit in the country.

The senior laden varsity squad is poised for a terrific season. With defensive strength in the back provided by seniors Drew Miller, Liam Burman, Hunter Moreland,and sophomore Hayden Kovinsky, and offensive punch provided by seniors Brian Becker, T Moyer, Shack Stanwick, and Cole Whitehurst, this group is ready for another run to the B conference championship.  The Shaifer brothers, Danny and Drew, have shown tremendous ability to both distribute and finish the ball.  They are gifted with the ball on their feet.  We have a critically important conference game on Fall Festival Saturday 28 September versus an excellent Severn Squad.  That begins at 11 am.

Lewis Scharff Named New Varsity Cross Country Coach
7/11/2013
 

Lewis Scharff has been named the new Varsity Cross Country Coach at Boys' Latin beginning this fall.  Coach Scharff has been a fixture on our campus for several years as a parent, coach, and supporter of our community and athletic program.

For the past 8 years, he has been involved with our lacrosse program.  He has been the head coach of our 8th grade lacrosse team as well as an assistant on the varsity staff.  He is responsible for off season / in season training and conditioning while focusing on our midfield play.  Coach Scharff has been responsible for getting our lacrosse athletes physically and mentally prepared to handle the rigors of A conference lacrosse.  It seems to be a perfect nexus for our fall cross country runners to be led and mentored by such a caring, compassionate, and experienced coach. 

Coach Scharff is an avid runner who has completed many full /half marathons, as well
as long distance trail races.  Coach Scharff's sons, Adam 08' and Jimmy 11', are BL alumni and former student athletes.  We gladly welcome Coach Scharff to BL Cross Country!

Boys’ Latin Varsity and JV Baseball - Spring 2013
5/21/2013

Varsity baseball completed its season in the championship game versus Glenelg Country School on Sunday last with a 7-0 defeat.  After an incredible playoff run with victories against AACS (11-8), Pallotti HS (5-2), and #1 seeded St. Mary’s HS (6-5), the Lakers were stymied against the Dragons behind the pitching of sophomore Dylan Fanella.  He pitched a gem going the distance with a complete game 3 hitter.  The Lakers were led on the mound by sophomore Harris Lipinski, who pitched four scoreless innings.

Coach Greenwell and the team should be very proud of their efforts.  They had little momentum going into the post season with questions regarding their inconsistent defense.  The bats were always healthy, but the combination of both was often lacking.  Come playoff time, all facets to include senior leadership, timely hitting, good pitching, and more consistent defensive help were on display.  Seniors Devin Foudos and Peter Argo led this wonderful group.  Peter often willed his team to better play and victory using emotion and energy to generate a combative will.  Devin quietly used his lead off bat and stellar play in the outfield to silence the opponents.  Junior standout pitcher Freddie Bopst wanted the ball to either complete a game or save a game.

The team would like to thank all the parents for their postgame dinners, and their support throughout the season.  There were many wet, cold and windy scrimmages and games in February and March that made things challenging.  Again, thanks to all the parents for their support of this team and coaching staff.

The JV squad led by Liam Madden, catcher Drew Gray, and Will Reid had a wonderfully successful season.  It has been many years since we had a JV team within our baseball program. Getting our younger freshmen and sophomore players’ significant scrimmage /game minutes was important to grow the program.  Establishing good baseball habits with consistent practice skill development will pay dividends down the road.  Thanks go to Head Coach Phil Sheehey, assistants Matt Wareheim and Jon Decker for all their efforts.

And finally, we extend thanks to Coach Butch Maisel for his tireless efforts to keep the baseball field groomed and pristine for all the MS, and US games.  It was a daily activity that demanded much effort.  Thank you again sir.

Varsity Baseball
Our varsity baseball team has completed their regular season with a conference record of 8-7. They are slated to play @ Pallotti HS this afternoon @ 4 pm.  We have secured the Red #3 seed.  Head Coach Bill Greenwell, Coach Josh Winter, Coach Matt Siggins, Coach Jake Schoenfeld and Captains Peter Argo and Devin Foudos continue to provide great leadership.  Although the varsity will be on the road for every playoff effort, please try to support the Laker 9. Click to view the B Conference baseball bracket. 

JV Baseball
As you may or may not know, we fielded a JV team this seaon.  The growth of the program demanded such.  Head Coach Phil Sheehey, and assistants John Decker and Matt Wareheim have helped this young group improve.  Being a first year team, they secured a 4 - 9 conference record against some very good and established teams. We salute their efforts to expand the program while giving the young freshman and sophomores an opportunity to improve their skills and get dirt on their pants.  It was an exciting spring for the JV boys.  They complete their efforts next Monday @ home vs Mt. St Joseph HS 3:30 pm.

MS Baseball
Both the MS baseball teams had successful season under Coach Baine, Coach Maisel, and Coach Z.  The A team had a wonderful year with some talented boys.  The B team had large numbers and found great success on the diamond.  We have approximately 40 boys played MS baseball.  That in itself is very exciting.  Thank you, coaches, for handling these teams with so many participants.  We appreciate all your hard work.

Thank you.

Their lone loss was by 1 goal to Gilman about two weeks ago. We play tomorrow, Thursday, May 9, 4:30 pm @ Gilman for the JV A Conference championship. Please come out to support this talented team of coaches and players.

F/S Lacrosse

Coach Robinson, Coach Lee Kennedy, and the FS team have completed their season.  The boys imporved throughout the season.  They were very strong on the defensive side, yet had great difficulty scoring goals.  We look forward to their maturation to move to the JV team next spring.

Brett Roberts - Documentarian
5/2/2013

The athletic department would like to thank junior Brett Roberts for his commitment to Boys’
Latin’s varsity lacrosse team.  Brett is currently producing a documentary on the varsity lacrosse
team's campaign this spring.  That documentary will be available at the end of the season.

Brett is serving as both manager and videographer.  He travels with the team, attends practices, and is a fly on  the wall for almost every activity.  His video offerings are attached below.

Coach Shriver states, "What Brett is doing is great for the program and the school, and it is unbelievably artistic.  Brett has quite a gift and is a treasure."

We are proud that Brett is devoted to this labor of love an dhas initiated this by himself.  He has a flare for highlighting the other team as well as our boys, the "MIAA grind", the drama, and the pageantry of playing high school lacrosse at the highest level here at Boys' Latin School.
