    Clarke, Jones qualify for cross country nationals

    By: Tammy Showalter

    Sometimes the first time is a charm.

    They are gearing up for the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I Cross Country National Championships and getting their plane tickets ready.

    For the first time in school history at the College of Southern Maryland, two athletes have qualified for the national meet, which is hosted by South Plains College and Lubbock Sports and will take place Nov. 8 in Levelland, Texas.

    Sophomores Jackie Clark, a St. Mary’s Ryken High School graduate, and Chris Jones, a North Point High School graduate, will take that plane trip with CSM head cross country coach Chris Tuttle in hopes of standing on a national podium.

    “It’s very exciting, especially for the new program for the guys,” Tuttle said. “Jackie pretty much dominated the [regional] race. She did very well, winning that. The expectations are to go out there and represent the college well. I think for Jackie we’re hoping for a top 5 to 10 place at nationals and that’s reachable for how she’s running right now.

    “We’re hoping for Chris that this finish at regionals really helps him continue in that direction and getting out there and competing well with them.”

    In its inaugural season, the men’s team has already made the history books, and although CSM doesn’t have a full fledged women’s team, Clark has been motivated by... click here for more.

    College of Southern Maryland cross country running through the growing pains

    Men’s team begins at CSM as NP graduate Jones returns home; second-year women’s team needs runners

    By: Tammy Showalter

    A coach’s dream is to get a program up and running with the support of the local community. Recruiting some of the top local talent in the area is an added bonus.

    But with recruiting comes the highs and lows.

    The high for the College of Southern Maryland is that the school will have its first men’s cross country team with a team of five runners.

    The low is the women’s team still in search of more runners, the same issue as last year when the first-year group had just three females, meaning they could only compete individually, not as a team.

    As the program, under head coach Chris Tuttle, in his second season, and assistant coach Josh Trice, continues the growing pains of beginning a program, they have found some success right in their own backyard.

    Chris Jones, who transferred from NCAA Division III Elizabethtown College (Pa.), will lead the pack for the men’s team.

    Jones, a 2013 North Point High School graduate, was an Southern Maryland Athletic Conference standout, making the All-SMAC team all four years of his high school career. Jones was the All-SMAC Most Outstanding Player his junior year... click here for more.

    A new chapter begins

    College of Southern Maryland women's soccer team looking to create own identity from last year's historic run

    By: AJ Mason

    The 2013 season was one of the storybook variety for the College of Southern Maryland women’s soccer team.

    Head coach Adam Sanchez witnessed his Hawks claim their second straight Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference crown and also the program’s first-ever Region XX and District L championships.

    The story continued on as CSM earned its first trip to the NJCAA Division I tournament in Melbourne, Fla., at Eastern Florida State College.

    The Hawks fell to Navarro College (Texas) and Eastern Florida State in pool play, but they finished the season at 17-3 overall and cemented their status in the CSM record books.

    This year, Sanchez and the Hawks are planning... click here for more.

    Bucior eager to take command

    Chopticon graduate ready to fulfill leadership role

    By: AJ Mason

    “He never stops running. That kid can run for days.”

    “He runs like a deer, is very fast and just has a motor you can’t teach.”

    That are some of the things that coaches and players from the College of Southern Maryland men’s soccer team say about sophomore striker Sean Bucior.

    The speed, stamina and scoring ability of Bucior, a 2013 Chopticon High School graduate, helped CSM to a 9-6-1 overall record a season ago, and now he’s ready to drive the Hawks to even better things this fall with his leadership.

    “My freshman year was more of a learning curve,” Bucior said. “I’m more experienced now. Last year I just had high school and club under my belt around this time and now I have a full year of training with my teammates. So the chemistry is there and everything is working so far.”

    With a freshmen-laden team a year ago, the Hawks finished 7-4 in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference, advancing to the Region XX championship game, falling to ...click here for more.

    Competing for Excellence in Classroom, on Field of Play

    Student Athletes Recognized for Academic Achievements

    Six student-athletes at the College of Southern Maryland have been named to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA) Region XX All-Academic Team for the 2013-14 academic year.

    Golfer George Bowie of Port Tobacco, volleyball libero Kimberly Brewer of Waldorf, women’s basketball forward/center Maekala Bryant of Waldorf, men’s basketball forward James Day of Mechanicsville, women’s soccer forward Kayla Ruiz of California and women’s soccer forward Laura Shaner of Leonardtown were named All-Academics.

    To be eligible for this distinction, student athletes must exhibit excellence in their sport as well as maintain at least a 3.60 grade point average (GPA).

    “The accomplishments of our student athletes in the classroom, in the heat of competition and in their everyday lives, speak to the character and caliber of the young men and women of CSM who participate in sports while advancing their academic pursuits,” said CSM Lead Director of Student Life and Athletics Michelle Ruble.


    Arter is ready to go

    Named to be first women's lacrosse coach at CSM

    By: Andy States

    Lacrosse has been a fixture in Joyce Arter’s life since she started playing in eighth grade.

    Arter enjoyed a prolific career at Calvert High School, played for four years at Longwood University (Va.) and then came back to coach at both Calvert and then as an assistant on the staff at Northern. In 2015, she will be the head coach of the College of Southern Maryland’s women’s lacrosse team when it takes the field for its first season.

    “It’s a great opportunity for me. I’ve always wanted to coach college lacrosse, so this is a step right into it,” Arter said. “I’ve met with a bunch of potential girls for next year. I’ve already been talking to them about their summer workouts and will have a couple of open fields this summer. I’m real excited for them to get out there and see what it’s going to be like for next season.”

    In high school, Arter was named the Southern Maryland Athletic Conference’s Most Outstanding Player following both her junior and senior seasons. As a senior, she... click here for full article

    College of Southern Maryland opens its doors to men's cross country

    College to start new program in the Fall

    By: Tammy Showalter

    It was only just over a week ago that the College of Southern Maryland’s athletic programs grew by one.

    Christopher Tuttle, who led the women’s cross country team last year for its inaugural season, is proud to say that the door is wide open now for men, with his hope of having at least five men on the first team.

    “We’re just getting out there now. We already have many males that are interested in running,” Tuttle said. “In terms of talking to local high school coaches, everyone’s really excited about the program. It will be run as two separate teams, but essentially we’ll practice at the same time. The training is pretty similar. They’ll go to the same meets. The men will run an 8K where the women will run a 5K.”

    The cross country programs at CSM competes in Division I of the National Junior College Athletic Association and Tuttle is excited about the future and the two teams.

    Tuttle said he received many inquiries from male students regarding a team.

    In a recent press release, Tuttle said, “Cross country is a great addition for us at CSM because it helps instill a high work ethic in our student-athletes. Having been a competitive runner myself, I know the discipline it takes to be a collegiate runner carries over into the classroom.”

    Tuttle has spoken with... click here for the link to the entire article.
