ST. MARY’S — The lacrosse career of St. Mary’s senior attacker Kate Bartholomew was halted suddenly due to the coronavirus pandemic in the middle of March. In what would turn out to be her final collegiate game, a 16-10 triumph over Haverford on March 11, Bartholomew scored five goals and assisted on another.

The Seahawks improved to 5-2 and Bartholomew led them in goals (29), points (38), shots (70), draw controls (21) and game-winning goals (3).

Her career totals include 127 goals and 164 points.

Bartholomew was the outstanding female athlete in KCHS’ Class of 2016. She lettered four times in both field hockey and lacrosse and earned two varsity letters apiece in basketball and indoor track. She was a three-time team MVP in lacrosse, and a finalist for Mid-Shore lacrosse player of the year.

SALISBURY — Salisbury University went 6-1 this spring in men’s tennis, and sophomore Ryan Santmyer was a big part of that. He was unbeaten in singles — 1-0 at No. 2 and 4-0 at No. 4 — and 4-3 in doubles.

Santmyer, the outstanding male sportsman in the KCHS Class of 2018, is a four-time Mid-Shore tennis player of the year. He did not lose a dual match in high school, ever, captured three region titles and was a four-time state tournament qualifier.

Santmyer played soccer for the Trojans as a junior and a senior, and led them in scoring both seasons.
