Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 24 March 2014 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Boxing-Sergey Kovalev vs. Cedric Agnew (Saturday 10pm from Atlantic City live on HBO); MLS: Chicago Fire @ DC United (Saturday 4pm from RFK Stadium live on NBC Sports Network); Auto Racing: NASCAR STP 500 (Sunday 1pm from Martinsville, VA live on FOX); Golf: PGA Tour Texas Open (Thursday & Friday 3pm live on Golf Channel Saturday & Sunday 1pm live on Golf Channel 3pm live on NBC), LPGA Tour Kia Classic (Thursday & Friday 6:30pm Saturday & Sunday 7pm from Carlsbad, CA live on Golf Channel)

10. Damon Wayans (Friday & Saturday Magooby’s Joke House); Baltimore Greek Week (Tuesday-Sunday Greektown); Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus (Wednesday-Sunday Baltimore Arena); The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Delivery Man” out on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Bad Words“, “Noah” and “Sabotage” out in theaters (Friday)

I assume Damon Wayans will call me while he’s in town. After all, I am close personal friends with the family.

Also…language terribly NSFW (unless you work somewhere selling penny stocks), but this is by far and away the Magnum Opus of Wolf of Wall Street…

9. Mobb Deep (Sunday 8pm Baltimore Soundstage); Los Lonely Boys (Saturday 8pm Sunday 7:30pm Rams Head on Stage); The Ataris (Friday 8pm Fillmore Silver Spring); Grouplove/MS MR/Smallpools (Sunday & Monday 7pm 9:30 Club); The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band (Thursday 7:30pm The Hamilton); Pentatonix (Saturday 8pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Experience Hendrix feat. Buddy Guy/Jonny Lang/Kenny Wayne Shepherd/Bootsy Collins (Sunday 7pm Lincoln Theatre); Johnny Cash “Out Among The Stars” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I’m going to start a MS MR cover band called MR MS. I’m clever.

Smallpools is the band that did the best song in 2013 no one gave enough credit to.

I am a supporter of the Rev.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Jimi Hendrix. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t suck.

We’re announcing “Local Sportsperson of the Year” Tuesday. Here are the finalists.

Posted on 30 December 2013 by Glenn Clark

We’ll make our annual “Local Sportsperson of the Year” announcement Tuesday here at WNST. The announcement is scheduled for 3pm Tuesday on “The Reality Check” here on AM1570 WNST.net.

We discussed a slew of names for Local Sportsperson of the Year this year. Here is a reminder of our previous winners.

2008-Michael Phelps
2009-Todd Bozeman
2010-Greivis Vasquez
2011-Rob Ambrose
2012-Buck Showalter

We discussed a number of names for “Local Sportsperson of the Year” in 2013. As a reminder, there are only three qualifications when it comes to the award.

First, the person must be local. They must be an athlete, coach or front office member for a pro, college or high school team in the state of Maryland. Individual sport athletes who represent the state of Maryland also qualify.

Second, the person must stand out from other people over the course of the 12 calendar months. The accomplishments of that individual must be comparable to if not greater than the accomplishments of others in the area.

And finally, that person’s year must stand out from other years during their tenure/career in the area.

Here are our five finalists for 2013 in alphabetical order by last name.

Paul Cantabene (Stevenson Lacrosse Coach)

Cantabene guided the Mustangs to the Division III National Championship, the first national championship of any kind in school history. Cantabene has steadily built the program as a major national power since his arrival in Owings Mills and has himself become a very hot commodity in the world of college lacrosse coaching. Cantabene is not a native Baltimorean but is about as close as can be, having coached at Johns Hopkins, Towson and Maryland after finishing his playing career at Loyola.

Chris Davis (Baltimore Orioles 1B)

Davis finished third in AL MVP voting in 2013 and was named “Most Valuable Oriole” by local media after a remarkable season that saw him break Brady Anderson’s club single season home run record with 53. Davis was far from a one trick pony, adding 42 doubles to hit .286 with a .370 on base percentage and added 138 RBI. Davis also played a high level of defense in his first full season at first base, helping the Orioles to a winning record for a second straight season.

Joe Flacco (Baltimore Ravens QB)

While Flacco’s (and the Ravens’) 2013 season sputtered following the signing of a long-term contract extension, it cannot be forgotten how Calendar 2013 began. Flacco’s remarkable 11 touchdown, zero interception postseason run ended with the quarterback claiming Super Bowl XLVII honors and bringing Charm City their first championship in over a decade. Despite Flacco’s underwhelming numbers, he was still a finalist for Most Valuable Raven in the 2013 season and came up with a number of spectacular throws during the season.

John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens Head Coach)

The conversation surrounding Flacco must also include Harbaugh, who deftly guided the Ravens to that Super Bowl title. Harbaugh’s run of reaching the playoffs in every season as head coach ended in 2013, but the calendar year began with the coach finishing his finest season since replacing Brian Billick.

Terrance West (Towson RB)

West is the only native Baltimorean to be named a finalist in 2013, leading the Tigers to the NCAA FCS Championship Game January 4. West seemingly smashed every school record in the process, being named All-American, CAA Offensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Walter Payton Award-FCS’ equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. The junior back is Baltimore through and through, having attended Northwestern High School and growing up watching and rooting for the Baltimore Ravens.

(Other candidates who were considered for this year’s honor included Ravens K Justin Tucker, Orioles 3B Manny Machado, UMBC soccer coach Pete Caringi, University of Maryland midfielder/Tewaaraton Trophy winner Katie Schwarzmann, Former St. Frances basketball player Tevon Saddler and more.)

Who do you think should receive the annual WNST honor? We’ll make the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

Stevenson opens season with win over NC Wesleyan

Posted on 07 September 2013 by WNST Staff

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – In his first collegiate game, Stevenson football freshman Trey Lee (Lusby, Md./Patuxent) rushed for 132 yards while junior Madison Townley (LaPlata, Md./LaPlata) hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass to help lift the Mustangs to a 19-9 victory over N.C. Wesleyan Friday at Mustang Stadium in front of 2,292 fans.

With the win, Stevenson (1-0) won its first season-opener in its third season in school history while improving its record to 2-1 in home openers.

Lee is the fifth different player to rush for 100 yards in school history and the third freshman. Ryan Crawley rushed for 105 yards at FDU-Florham on Oct. 29, 2011 while K.K. Smith rushed for 100 yards in seven out of 10 games last season.

After a stagnant first half in which both teams combined for just 255 yards of total offense and three points, the Mustangs tallied 10 third-quarter points to take the lead for good. Senior Charlie Cornell (Turnersville, N.J./Washington Township) tied the game with a 25-yard field goal before sophomore John Gasparovic (Middletown, Del./Appoquinimink) found Townley from 13 yards out with just 20 seconds remaining.

Holding a one-point lead going into the fourth quarter, the Stevenson defense held the Battling Bishops (0-1) to just 51 yards of total offense while limiting Jacques Alston to just 30 yards rushing after he totaled 134 through three quarters.

Nursing a seven-point lead with under three minutes remaining, sophomore Billy Lewis (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne’s) intercepted a pass from Robbie Lanier to set up Cornell’s second field goal of the game, a clinching 30-yarder with just 56 seconds to play.

Lewis finished with a team-high six tackles and one interception while junior Tim Campbell (Millersville, Md./McDonogh) and junior Moses Anoh (Clarksburg, Md./Clarksburg) also had six tackles. Anoh added half-a-sack and one tackle for loss.

The defense totaled 3.5 sacks while the offensive line, who ranked fourth in the MAC a year ago in fewest sacks allowed, did not surrender one for the fourth time in the last seven games dating back to last season. During that time, the o-line has surrendered just six sacks.

The Mustangs went in front 16-9 with 6:51 left in the fourth quarter after sophomore Jarret Bragg (Sicklerville, N.J./Camden Catholic) capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive with a 2-yard run for his first career rushing touchdown.

Gasparovic completed 10-of-21 passes for 134 yards and one touchdown while junior Anthony Reid (Philadelphia, Pa./West Catholic) totaled 84 all-purpose yards with 29 rushing, nine receiving and a 46-yard kickoff return that set-up the go-ahead touchdown from Gasparovic to Townley.

Stevenson averaged 28.7 yards per kick return which helped the team boast an average starting field position of its own 38-yard line, including its own 44 in the second half.

The Mustangs look for their third-straight win, both overall and at home, when it hosts Albright next Saturday, September 14 for a 1:00 p.m., kickoff at Mustang Stadium. The Lions, who went 8-3 a year ago and finished fourth in the MAC, edged out a 29-22 victory versus Stevenson at home a year ago after freshman Dan Sobolewski made a 47-yard field goal as time expired to force overtime.

Stevenson coach Cantabene named DIII Coach of the Year

Posted on 22 June 2013 by WNST Staff

DENVER, Colo. – Stevenson head men’s lacrosse coach Paul Cantabene was selected as the 2013 Division III College Coach of the Year by the youth and college sports network CaptainU on Thursday. Top coaches in their respective sports and divisions were chosen for their teams’ inspiring performances both on and off the field.

“The CaptainU College Coach of the Year awards recognize the top college coaches across the country for their exceptional leadership
and accomplishments,” said Avi Stopper, CEO of CaptainU. “It’s inspiring to see the results they achieve, not just in the numbers
they put up on the scoreboard, but in their devotion to helping students develop as athletes and human beings.”

The 2013 Commonwealth Conference Coach of the Year, Cantabene led Stevenson to the first national championship in team and school
history with a 16-14 victory over RIT on May 26 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Mustangs finished with a school-record 22 wins and boasted 11 All-America and two Scholar All-America selections.

Cantabene, who is currently 137-37 in nine seasons as a college head coach, joins Denver head coach Bill Tierney and Mercyhurst head coach Chris Ryan who received the honors in Division I and II, respectively.

CaptainU is the largest youth and college sports network. More than half a million high school athletes, youth sports events, youth
coaches, and college coaches use CaptainU to promote themselves and their teams, and to connect with each other.

CaptainU was founded in 2008 at the University of Chicago by Avi Stopper and Michael Farb, sports devotees who had long been involved with high school and college athletics — both as athletes and coaches. By combining their love for sports with their passion for
technology, CaptainU was born.

Stevenson tops RIT for first NCAA Championship in school history

Stevenson tops RIT for first NCAA Championship in school history

Posted on 26 May 2013 by WNST Staff

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Led by goals from six different players, the Stevenson men’s lacrosse team outscored RIT 6-1 in the fourth quarter to overcome a three-goal deficit en route to winning the title game of the 2013 NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship with a 16-14 victory Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Mustangs (22-2) finish the season with a school record 22 wins and on a 10-game winning streak. Stevenson is the eighth different school to win the NCAA Division III championship and the third from Maryland, joining Salisbury and Washington College.

“I want to thank everybody from Stevenson University that helped us get here,” said head coach Paul Cantabene. “President Manning, Tim Campbell, Brett Adams and everybody who put everything on for this weekend.”

“It’s an unbelievable community of people and what they do to help us get here and the logistics, it’s just a real special place. I feel
like I’m one of the luckiest guys in the world to have the best job in the world so I just can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done.”

Sophomore Mark Pannenton (Niskayuna, N.Y./Niskayuna) was named Most Outstanding Player after scoring five goals against the Tigers, his third, five-goal game of the season. He became just the third player in program history to score 60 goals in a season, joining Jimmy Dailey (2011) and Neal Barthelme (2011).

With 62 goals, Pannenton is second on the Mustangs’ all-time single season list. He scored 13 goals in Stevenson’s five NCAA tournament games and scored at least one goal in each of the team’s 24 games this season.

The Mustangs jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the game’s first 5:37 and led 6-1 after the first quarter. In 24 games this season, Stevenson
outscored its opponents, 131-34.

However, RIT (19-3) responded by outscoring the Mustangs 12-4 over the second and third quarter and took its first lead of the game at 10-9 on a man-up goal by Eddie Kiesa with 9:54 remaining in the third.

The goal, which was during a one-minute, unreleaseable, 6-on-4 man-advantage for the Tigers, was the last of four man-up goals for RIT who were 4-10 on extra-man opportunities in the game. The Tigers entered the game with the best man-up offense in Division III this season.

Stevenson was whistled for 11 pentalties totaling 8:30 and committed six face-off violations which led to three man-up opportunities for
the Tigers.

After Kyle Aquin gave RIT a 13-10 lead at the end of the third quarter, the Mustangs outscored the Tigers 6-1 just like they did in
the first, netting the first four of the fourth quarter just 57 seconds apart before sophomore Pat Candon (Long Beach, N.Y./Holy Trinity) scored the game-winner with 11:31 left.

“I think that’s one of the things that this team does, they concede the loss,” said Cantabene. “They could have gave up at 13-10. They
never concede anything. Alright, you got us, but I’m going to make the next play. We’re going to make the next thing. That’s kind of how we go about it.”

Aquin tied the NCAA Division III championship game record by scoring seven goals on Sunday, equaling the mark set by Salisbury’s Sam Bradman in 2011. In two games against Stevenson this year, he scored 11 of the Tigers’ 25 goals.

Senior Tyler Reid (Clinton, Conn./Xavier) finished with a goal and three assists for the Mustangs and finished his three-year career
ranked fifth in school history with 162 points and third with 123 goals. He scored a school record 29 goals in 11 NCAA tournament games.

The Mustangs were outshot for the first time this season, 43-42, and for just the 25th time in nine seasons under Cantabene.

Both teams and lacrosse fans will not have to wait long for the rematch between RIT and Stevenson.

“It’s not going to take us long to see them again because we open the season with them next year,” said Cantabene. “That’ll be pretty
interesting.”

Stevenson and RIT are scheduled to write the fourth chapter in what is an increasingly exciting rivalry on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014.

Stevenson battles RIT Sunday for DIII lacrosse crown

Posted on 25 May 2013 by WNST Staff

ROCHESTER, NY – For the first time in the 46-year history of RIT men’s lacrosse, the Tigers will play for a NCAA Division III National Championship. RIT will face Stevenson University on Sunday, May 26 at 4 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pa. in the 2013 NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship. It is the first trip to the NCAA Championship game for both squads.

RIT advanced to the championship with a thrilling 10-9 overtime win over top-seeded and previously undefeated SUNY Cortland in the semifinals Sunday. Allister Warren (Toronto, Ontario/Malvern Collegiate Institute) and Taylor Wisman(Seattle, WA/Inglemoor) worked the Hidden ball trick play to perfection, with Warren scoring the game-winner into an open net with 1:55 to play in overtime to send the Tigers to their first championship game. Jack Krzyston (Bedford, NH/Bishop Guertin)Kyle Aquin (Hamilton, Ontario/St. Jean De Brebeuf) and Eddie Kiesa (Syracuse, NY/Jamesville-Dewitt) each had two goals for the Tigers, while Wisman dished out three assists. Tyler Brooks-Lambert (Seneca Castle, NY/Midlakes) was dominant once again at the face-off “X”, winning 15 of 21 draws, grabbing eight ground balls and scoring a goal. Pat Johnston (Norwell, MA/Norwell) picked up his 19th win of the season, making 10 saves.

Stevenson tops Salisbury, will play for D3 title

Posted on 20 May 2013 by WNST Staff

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The No. 12 Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team’s title defense came to an end on Sunday night at Mustang Stadium, as the Sea Gulls fell to No. 4 Stevenson University, 12-6, in an NCAA Division III semifinal game; this marked the fourth-straight semifinal appearance for the Gulls, but the first loss in the round since 1998 and the first time failing to make the national championship since 2009.

Stevenson jumped out to an early lead on the Sea Gulls, starting the game with a three-goal run. Less than two minutes into the game, at the 13:27 mark, Mark Pannenton scored for the Mustangs to begin the run. Pannenton blocked a pass by junior goalkeeper Alex Taylor and retrieved the ground ball for a one-on-one chance.

Freshman attackman Brady Dashiell, Salisbury’s leader with three goals, stopped the run with the Sea Gulls’ first goal to cut the lead; junior attackman Rhett DePol passed across the crease to an open Dashiell, who put the ball home in the right side of the cage. Dashiell and DePol both tallied four points to lead the Gulls, as DePol registered a team-high three assists.

The quarter ended with two goals from the Mustangs, as Salisbury entered the second quarter trailing, 5-1.

The Gulls took little time getting onto the scoreboard in the second, scoring two goals in the first two minutes of the period.

At the 14:05 mark, Dashiell had the ball near the right sideline, before dodging his defender, running to the crease and beating the Mustang’s keeper for his second goal. He then assisted DePol just 64 seconds later, passing the ball to DePol, who faked the goalie on the crease and scored low to cut the lead to 5-3.

After getting within two, the Sea Gulls gave up a four-goal run to the Mustangs to end the half. Chris Dashiell scored three during the run for Stevenson, and Salisbury entered halftime trailing, 9-3.

At the half, Salisbury was trailing in shots, 22-16, and faceoffs won, 2-of-6, but the Sea Gulls were successful on 5-of-7 clears.

Both teams scored only one goal in the third quarter, with Tyler Smith ripping a shot from 15 yards for the Sea Gulls, and the score entering the fourth quarter was 10-4.

While holding the Mustangs to the single score, the Gulls were unable to jump at the chance to gain some ground. “We did create some opportunities during that run,” Head Coach Jim Berkman said. “We just weren’t able to capitalize.”

To start the final quarter, Stevenson’s Tyler Reid scored at the 13:05 mark to increase the Mustang’s lead to 11-4, but two goals from the Sea Gulls cut the lead to five with just over six minutes remaining.

Brady Dashiell completed his hat trick by taking a pass from DePol and netting a shot from the right wing.

Smith tallied his second on a man-up chance; he took a pass from junior midfielder Greg Korvin and whizzed a low shot from 20 yards past the keeper.

The Mustangs scored again late to cap the game.

Taylor played all 60 minutes for the Gulls in the cage and made nine saves in the effort.

Despite the 2013 season coming to an end, the Sea Gulls were a young team this season that now has good experience moving forward. “There are some young guys that definitely got their feet wet and hopefully got some great experience,” Berkman said. “It will really pay dividends in the future.”
