Katie Mcgovern Chooses Drexel; Greg Dewitt, Lycoming

Posted: August 25, 1995

Katie McGovern and Greg DeWitt have announced their college choices.

Drexel University released a statement Tuesday stating that McGovern, a Paul VI graduate, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball for the Dragons.

DeWitt, a recent Haddonfield graduate, will play soccer this fall for Lycoming College.

McGovern, a 5-foot-8 guard, and Kathleen Feeney of New York are the initial recruits for first-year Dragons coach Kevin Murphy.

"I am very pleased that Katie and Kathleen have decided to continue their education at Drexel," Murphy said. "Katie is a very versatile player who can play both guard positions."

A three-year starter at Paul VI, McGovern served as co-captain for the Eagles as a senior, when she averaged 13.0 points per game. She set the Paul VI record for most three-point baskets in a season, 54, as a senior.

DeWitt, a first-team all-Colonial Conference player, had 16 shutouts as a senior goalie for the Bulldogs and posted a 0.48 goals-against average.

"We might have gotten the best goalie in New Jersey in Greg," Lycoming coach Rob Eaton said. "We're expecting a lot from him right away. He is very talented."

KUDOS FOR PRITCHETT. Woodrow Wilson graduate Bruce Pritchett has been named an honorable-mention Division III preseason all-American by the Don Hansen Football Gazette and a player to watch by Street & Smith.

Pritchett, a senior at Kean College, was a first-team all-New Jersey Athletic Conference cornerback as a junior. He had five interceptions that season, including one he returned for a school-record 100 yards for a touchdown in a 15-14 comeback win over Widener.

He had a team-high nine pass breakups and made 35 tackles last season.

A.C. CREWS SECOND. Atlantic City High's Ted Frankel and Eric Funk won silver medals at the Junior World Rowing Championships Aug. 3-7 in Poznan, Poland.

They rowed in the men's eight for the United States, which finished the

2,000-meter course in 5 minutes, 53.92 seconds, just 2.6 seconds behind the gold-medal winner, Germany.

The U.S. men's four with coxswain took seventh place, with Mark Redding as coxwain and Radley Spring in the crew. They attend Holy Spirit.

ODDS AND ENDS. Delsea's Sultan Tucker took the silver medal and Pleasantville's Nate Harley finished in fourth place in the 110-meter hurdles for boys age 17 and18 at the Amateur Athletic Union National Junior Olympics for track and field July 26-Aug. 5 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Tucker, who will be a junior, finished in 13.7 seconds, while Harley, who will be a senior, ran a 13.8. They compete for the Rising Star Track Club.

Gateway Regional graduate Erich Wiltsee, a junior at the University of Virginia, will begin the 1995 football season third on the depth chart at tight end. Wiltsee and the Cavaliers open tomorrow in the Pigskin Classic against Michigan.
