Head coach Larry Williams has several new faces, including Loch Raven grad Mary Gauvin and former Kenwood standout Bethany Anderson.
Last year, the CCBC Essex women’s cross country team placed third in the Maryland JUCO Region XX championships, behind the performance of Joanna Barranco (fifth), Erin Williams (11th), Barbara Henschel (13th) and Amanda Foble (15th). Barranco is now an assistant coach with the team this season. Williams is attending Bloomsburg (PA) University. Henschel is attending Towson University. And Foble, who like the other three got a two-year degree at the school, is working in the area. That left head coach Larry Williams, the father of Erin, with seven freshmen going into a scrimmage with Anne Arundel Community College last week. “That was our dominant team last year,” said coach Williams, who began the program four years ago. "We are a total …

Francis Massally rushes for 128 yards and two touchdowns as the Mavericks cruise to a 47-14 victory in prep football.
Eastern Tech had not gotten off to a stellar start in 2011. First, the Mavericks’ season-opener against City was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. Then, Eastern Tech lost last week at 2010 Class 3A finalist Franklin, 13-2. There would be no let down for Eastern Tech on Friday when it hosted Essex rival Kenwood at CCBC Essex. Junior tailback Francis Massally rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries as the Mavericks cruised to a 47-14 victory. “Football is a game of field positions and we were fortunate to have made some key plays,” Eastern Tech coach Marc Mesaros said. “If not, the game could have gone in a completely different direction.” Kenwood (0-3) actually led 8-7 following an 8-yard touchdown run by senior running back …

The Knights are out to compete with top MD JUCO teams in 2011.
Geoffrey Holland is confident CCBC Essex has the talent to be one of the best teams in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference this season. But to do that, Holland also knows the Knights will have to play better against the top teams in the conference. Last season, CCBC Essex put together a solid 8-6-1 record and finished in fourth place in MD JUCO. However, the Knights also went 0-4 against the three teams ahead of them: Anne Arundel Community College, Harford Community College and Montgomery-Rockville. In those games, CCBC Essex was outscored 16-2. “We have a strong team, but we’re also in a strong division,” said Holland, in his fourth season at the helm. “It’s a shame we’re all in the same conference because each of these …

The Knights, who won the Region XX title last year, open their season Thursday at Chesapeake College.
CCBC Essex came within one win of making the NJCAA national tournament for the third time in four seasons in 2010. However, that bid ended with a 3-1 loss to Cincinnati State Technical & Community College at Xavier University in Ohio in the 2010 NJCAA Division I Men's Soccer North Central District Championship. CCBC Essex forward Mikias Teketele—a NJCAA Division I All Region XX Second Team selection in 2010—remembers how he felt after that loss and is confident that if the Knights get another shot at nationals, the result will be different. “I know what it takes to play at the college level now,” said Teketele, a former Archbishop Curley standout who had 15 goals and eight assists last season. Whether the rest of the Knights understand …

"Committee" members from the iconic Baltimore dance show, the inspiration for "Hairspray," reflected on their TV stardom.
The world’s oldest teenagers gathered Sunday in Baltimore County to illustrate once again that even the most uncomfortable moments in American history can be turned into something musical, good-natured, and profitable beyond imagination. Hairspray came to CCBC Essex's Cockpit in Court theater, and so did the real original cast—those Committee members from the old Buddy Deane Show, whose moment in history became the premise for the hit Broadway musical about rock 'n' roll and racial tension in Baltimore half a century ago. About a dozen of the old Buddy Deane gang showed up to watch a delightful, energetic production of the John Waters inspiration. They stuck around after the performance to reminisce and answer audience questions. Most of …
