Spivey helps Central Florida advance in NCAAs
Wednesday, 19 November 2014 13:47
    Ashley Spivey scored the winning goal as the University of Central Florida’s women’s soccer team defeated the University of Georgia 2-1 in the first round of the NCAA Championship Tournament on Saturday.
    Spivey is a Dundalk resident who graduated from McDonogh School.
    With the score tied at 1-1, Spivey scored in the 69th minute to send the Knights into the second round of the NCAA tournament.
    It was the fourth game-winning goal of the year for Spivey, a junior forward.
    Spivey has nine goals and six assists for Central Florida and is the second-leading scorer on the team.
    The Knights are ranked 21st in the nation and are in the NCAA tournament for the eighth year in a row and 19th overall.
    Spivey was named to the All-American Athletic Conference second team.
    Central Florida (17-4) will face Wisconsin (19-2-2) in the second round on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in Tallahassee, Fla.
    Spivey transferred to Central Florida this season after two years at the University of Maryland.
    She had an immediate impact, assisting on the game-winning goal in the season-opening win over Miami, scoring the game-winning goal against Mississippi, the game-winning goal against East Carolina to help the Knights clinch the AAC regular-season title, and had two goals, including the game-winner, against Southern Methodist University in the AAC Tournament quarterfinals.
    She also assisted on the game-winning goal against then 23-ranked Long Beach State in September.

 
Registrations being accepted for Gingerbread 5k
Wednesday, 19 November 2014 13:46
    There’s a new Dundalk-titled race that doesn’t exactly takes place in Dundalk, but does benefit the community.
    The Dundalk Gingerbread 5K run is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 7 at 8:30 a.m. in the Hammerman Area of Gunpowder State Park.
    The park is on Graces Quarters Road off Ebenezer Road and Route 40.
    The race is intended to benefit the CenterPiece Family Arts Center, which is in partnership with the Dundalk Youth Service Center on Dundalk Avenue.
    Plans to hold the race in Dundalk were changed due to the Baltimore County Police Department being unable to supply officers for the event due to a heavy holiday schedule and officers being away on vacation.
    The course covers some of the most scenic areas of the state park system.
    To register for the race, visit www.dundalkgingerbread5k.org. Registration can be done online, or an application form can be downloaded and submitted by mail.
    The registration fee is $35. There will also be a one-mile walk accompanying the 5k race, for which the registration fee is $20.
    All registered runners will receive a race t-shirt.
    The top finishers in each age group will receive awards, and refreshments will be available after the race.
    The CenterPiece Family Arts Center  offers children, teens and families a free or low-cost cultural resource and outlet in their community.
    The Gingerbread 5k completes a trio of Dundalk-based road races which also included the Dundalk Challenge 5k in the spring and the Dundalk Heritage 6k on July 4.
