Players appreciating history of course
By: Tammy Showalter
The College of Southern Maryland golf team may have had the wintry mix to deal with this year in preparation for their 2014 season, but they aren’t letting it damper their spring break trip this week to Pinehurst, N.C.
Monday saw the Hawks dealing with chilly 34-degree windy weather, but they are getting a chance to play on the eight-course facility at Pinehurst Golf Resort, which has hosted the U.S. Open three times and will for a fourth time later this year.
CSM took on Lackawanna College (Pa.) in its first match of the season on Tuesday. Lackawanna finished 15th in the country a year ago in the NJCAA Division II rankings and have its top four players returning.
“They are so excited to play in this 34-degree weather with 20-degree wind chill, drizzly weather that they must have been locked in a cabin for a long time,” said CSM head coach Ned Spearbeck, who is also the head golf coach at McDonough High School in Charles County. “We start off with the very powerful Lackawanna College, a team we usually see at nationals. We’ve developed a little rivalry with them that’s been healthy for us. We try to bring our teams down here for spring break.”

North Point grad captures first-team honors
By AJ Mason
It has been nearly two months since the College of Southern Maryland women’s soccer team completed a historic season with the most wins in program history with 17 and claimed its first-ever Region XX and District L titles, while earning a berth to the NJCAA Division I national tournament in Melbourne, Fla.
Freshman defender Briana Williams, a 2013 North Point High School graduate, will never forget what the program delivered in the 2013 season and reflects on the special moments in her first season of college soccer under CSM head women’s soccer coach Adam Sanchez.
“Basically looking back on the season and all we have accomplished was special,” Williams said. “Knowing that last year’s team was just shy of making it to the nationals was phenomenal. I knew I had to do my part.”

Hawks on pace for one of the best seasons in program history
By Dallas Cogle
Not even a 15-day layoff could slow down these College of Southern Maryland Hawks, who are on a mission to boast one of the greatest men’s basketball seasons, if not the best, in the 41 years of the program’s existence.
Monday, the Hawks defeated St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s junior varsity team of the NCAA Division III outfit in a thrilling 94-91 overtime outcome on the road, solidifying CSM’s No. 13 national ranking in the most recent Division II junior college poll.
The St. Mary’s varsity unit is ranked No. 23 in the latest NCAA Division III national rankings.
The game marked the first time since before Christmas that the Hawks saw any competitive action on the court after inclement weather postponed Friday’s slated home affair with Thomas Nelson (Va.).
CSM won for the eighth time in its last nine contests.“To be ranked amongst some of the best programs in the country is... click here for more
Scores final 7 points of game to capture upset, soars past Montgomery
By: Dallas Cogle
This might have been the victory signaling to the rest of the Maryland Junior College Conference that the College of Southern Maryland Hawks have arrived as a women’s basketball program.
Wednesday, the Hawks pulled off a 58-51 upset of Montgomery College on the road in Takoma Park for their second Maryland JUCO win in three games.
The Hawks (3-6, 2-3 MD JUCO) outlasted a Montgomery outfit (7-5, 2-1) that is among the league elite, coming off an impressive season a year ago when it was 24-8 overall and a third-place 9-2 in the talent-laden conference. CSM was 8-13, 4-7 in the Maryland JUCO, a season ago in rebuilding mode and was swept handily by Montgomery in two meetings, including a 102-68 loss on the road.
“This was a big win for our program,” CSM head coach Andy Norris said. “It was a total team effort. When someone made a mistake, her teammates were there to pick her up. I’m very happy for our players. They deserved this win. Hopefully with this game, we now have ...click here for more
Hawks men get first win in conference play
By: AJ Mason
With visiting Anne Arundel Community College leading 40-35, College of Southern Maryland men’s basketball head coach Alan Hoyt called a timeout with three-and-a-half minutes left in the first half of Tuesday night’s contest so that his team could regroup.
The timeout would bode well for CSM, which exploded for a 13-2 run capped off by freshman guard Steven Cole’s long three-pointer as time expired heading into the locker room.
“In the timeout I said if we’re going to be a good team we have to be able to guard people and we put five guys out there that did,” Hoyt said. “That three-pointer was huge and gave us some momentum. We brought back the same guys in the second half and the level stayed there. The guys that didn’t start the second half figured out that they... click here for more.
Hawks women's basketball rolls past Anne Arundel
By: AJ Mason
As the final buzzer sounded Tuesday night, the College of Southern Maryland women’s basketball team would experience a feeling it hadn’t felt yet this season.
That feeling came in form of a 73-47 victory against visiting Anne Arundel Community College, the first win of the season for the Hawks.
It was the first game of a doubleheader as the Southern Maryland men’s team cruised to an 86-67 win against Anne Arundel later that night.
CSM (1-5 overall, 1-2 Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference) was averaging only 51.4 points per game entering the contest but collected its highest output of the season, while yielding the fewest points of the season, thus far, after giving up almost 72 per game in the first five games.
