Lisa Buente became the University of Maryland's all-time leading field hockey scorer with her 61st goal in a recent 5-0 victory over Richmond. Buente, a senior forward from Chadds Ford, Pa., also set the single season scoring record with her 21st goal in the Terrapins' 4-0 victory over Rutgers.
Coincidentally, Buente and the previous all-time record holder, Kim Turner (1985-88), both attended Unionville (Pa.) High School.
Buente's biggest game this season came when she scored two goals in a 3-2 victory over No. 1 North Carolina. Sixth-ranked Maryland is 9-4-2.
Success At Last
Consider this: When the Associated Press football poll was announced Monday, Charlottesville became the home of the No. 1 football and women's soccer teams. Also, the men's soccer team, 1989 NCAA co-champions, is ranked fifth in the nation; the women's basketball team, an NCAA semifinalist last season, was ranked first by one preseason magazine and the men's basketball team is as high as eighth in the preseason picks.
Big East Upset
Georgetown soccer coach Keith Tabatznik called the Hoyas' 2-1 victory over Connecticut Sunday "probably the biggest win we've ever had." In their first meeting against the Huskies, who won the 1981 NCAA title, the Hoyas (8-7) scored twice in the final 10 minutes to overcome a 1-0 deficit.
Peter Couhig, on an assist from Gui Barbosa (Whitman), scored the winning goal with 52 seconds left. Although both Georgetown and Connecticut are members of the Big East, they hadn't met before because of a two-division format.
Explaining Maryland's 2-1 soccer victory over North Carolina Sunday, Terrapins midfielder Paul Boardman said: "A lot of our girlfriends were here today, so that really helped. We wanted to impress them." . . .
Although the lacrosse season is five months away, NCAA finalist Loyola won the Choice-Visa Classic with a 23-13 victory over Towson State Sunday before 4,100 at University of Maryland-Baltimore County Stadium.

Albright (Pa.) senior outside linebacker Mike Schofer (Walter Johnson) helped the Lions win consecutive football games for the first time since 1983. . . . Emory and Henry senior quarterback Pat Walker (West Potomac) was named Old Dominion Athletic Conference offensive player of the week after throwing for three touchdowns in a 25-0 victory over Randolph-Macon, giving the Wasps the league title.
George Mason's Kim Saddic and Lauretta Miller finished 24th and 31st respectively, among 101 of the top women runners at a pre-NCAA Invitational cross-country race Monday at the University of Tennessee. . . .
