St. Maria Goretti High School announced the names of the first six inductees into the school’s newly formed Athletic Hall of Fame on Wednesday. The Class of 2011-12 from past and present generations will be honored for their character and exceptional achievements as part of Goretti’s athletic program.  

Rodney Monroe, who won three straight Baltimore Catholic League championships from 1984-87, will be honored alongside his coach at the time, Cokey Robertson. They’ll be joined by Jennifer Piccolomini (’99) and Susie Garrott Brown (’76), as well as two deceased alumni: former student and basketball player Bill Wills (’59) and Richard “Dick” Keller (St. Mary’s, ‘50), who actively supported the school’s athletic program for many years.

The Hall of Fame class will be officially inducted at the annual Mid-Atlantic Invitational Tournament hosted by Goretti every November.

“The opportunity to recognize these many talented individuals for their contributions to this community is long overdue. We are pleased to be able to, in some small way, thank them and their families, for what they have meant to the Goretti family,” said principal Richard Fairley.


Schultz finishes ninth

BEL AIR, Md. — Beaver Creek professional Dirk Schultz recorded a top-10 finish in the 90th Maryland Open on Wednesday at Maryland Golf & Country Club.

Schultz, five times a runner-up in the event, carded an even-par 72 in the final round for a 1-over-par 217. Schultz carded four birdies, a double bogey and two bogeys in his round.

Fountain Head assistant Brian Boggs finished tied for 44th following a 78 that gave him a 229.

Elkridge Club Director of Instruction David Hutsell, who was coming off a $75,000 title in the PGA Professional National Championship, outdueled 19-year-old amateur Sean Bosdosh, of Holly Hills in Frederick.

Hutsell recorded back-to-back eagles on the way to a course-record 65, just enough to edge Bosdosh, who closed with a 66, by one stroke with a 9-under 207.


Tom Downey, of Smithsburg, recently recorded a hole-in-one. He aced the 129-yard 4th hole at Cress Creek Country Club in Shepherdstown, W.Va., using a pitching wedge. The shot was witnessed by Dr. Robert Michaels.

Carl Walker of Thurmont, Md., shot a hole-in-one on the 75-yard 7th hole at Yingling’s Golf Center. He used a pitching wedge to record his first ace. He was playing with his sons Robert, Jack and Carlton Walker.
