BearSportsNews – Sunday Edition 5/5/13

The Sunday Edition is the place where we catch up on items not otherwise captured. This week stories about hockey, artists in sports, rugby and lacrosse.



Max Greenwald and Sam Kroll named to the American Maccabiah Team 

Former All Met Bear Forward, Max Greenwald (open team), and All MoCo Bear Goalie, Sam Kroll (junior team) , have been selected to the American hockey teams that will play in the Maccabiah Games in Israel this summer ( We’ll need a correspondent there to email us about their play there! We know how to follow the Middlebury Panther sophomore next Fall and information about the 3rd best goalie in the City of Chicago will be appreciated (UICC no longer has a hockey team).

Sam Anas and Youngstown Phantoms extend USHL Season

The league’s scorer, Sam Anas, had an assist in a thrilling win-or-go-home game against the Dubuque Fighting Saints.  He also leads his team with points in the play offs.


Bear artists/athletes

Stories about Landon boys who excel both on canvas and in sports gear are well read posts here. This Landon link lists at least 3 Bears who have talent in both spheres. We have shown the honored the Jack Bolen painting here ( ) before as well as the Jason Murphy painting ( . Both of their names are frequently mentioned in lacrosse stories.



Bears to start MAVRC playoffs with home game

Landon Rugby team will be competing in the first round of playoffs for the MAVRC Division 2 championship on Tuesday 5/7 at 4:30 at Landon on Prindle Field. They will be honoring the seniors before kickoff at 4:10.



Bear Alumni Coaches 

Facebook coincidentally had, on the same day, pictures of alumni coaches Ryan Curtis of the University of Vermont and Alex Cade of Coronado High School.

Other Bear alumni head coaches include Ian Healey of Potomac School and Rickey Kirschner of Oak Hall in Florida. His Eagle team went 17-2 this season and won its third consecutive district title. It was the best season in Oak Hall history.

Penn Leachman and JR Bordley are assistants at Landon.


OTHER COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL HEAD OR ASSISTANT COACHES ??? Please send me names and links to their teams; so we can follow them. They are part of Coach Rob Bordley’s contribution to the sport.


Bear /Tigers


It’s annoying/obnoxious and apologies are extended in expectation of cries of bias, but there need be an early mention of the Princeton overtime upset of the #2 Cornell team last night in the Ivy semi-finals. Though there are two Big Red Bear alumni, the Tigers are proud to have 4 Bear alumni playing for the Orange and Black last night. All of them contributed (like Justin Murphy at the X) , but special mention of 2016 Tiger Mark Strabo who was assigned to cover Cornell’s 3 time AA, likely POY Rob Pannell, one-on-one. No one shuts out the best attackman in college lacrosse and he had his way with Princeton last week with 9 points.  Friday night, due to Mark’s coverage, the Big Red stud has but two goals and three assists. Not bad for a freshman. THAT’S A BEAR!!!
