2 SPORTS SPORTS THE BALTIMORE SUN | | WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2019 D REGIONAL DIGEST Bayhawks hire assistant coach By Baltimore Sun staff Chris Burdick was hired as the Chesapeake Bayhawks’ assistant coach and defensive coordinato­r. The Cortland, New York, native also was recently named head coach at Webber Internatio­nal University. Burdick recently served as a volunteer assistant coach with the Bayhawks and has been helping the team throughout the 2019 Major League Lacrosse season. Burdick’s promotion to defensive coordinato­r comes as Bob Shillingla­w (Severna Park) steps down from his duties as an assistant coach. Shillingla­w, who coached the defense in 2018 and throughout the season in 2019, leaves the team in order to spend time with his family. Shillingla­w, prior to coaching Chesapeake, spent 39 seasons as a head coach at Delaware. Towson senior Tom Flacco was among four quarterbac­ks from the Colonial Athletic Associatio­n among 40 players honored on the preseason watch list for the 2019 College Football Performanc­e Awards FCS National Performer of the Year trophy. Also making the list from the CAA were Elon junior Davis Cheek, James Madison senior Ben DiNucci and Maine junior Chris Ferguson. Flacco received CAA Offensive Player of the Year and All-America honors in 2018 after completing 269 of 439 passes for 3,251 yards and a school-record tying 28 touchdowns. He also rushed for a team-best 742 yards and four scores to rank third in FCS in total offense (332.8 ypg). College football: UMBC was picked to place in a tie for third position in the America East Conference preseason poll. The 2018 America East finalists received 34 votes along with UMass Lowell. The coaches tabbed defending champion New Hampshire as the preseason favorite with 47 points and five of eight first-place selections. Last year’s regular season champions, the Stony Brook Seawolves, earned 40 points and the remaining three firstplace votes to land in second position. Men’s college soccer: Mount St. Mary’s was picked fifth in the Northeast Conference preseason coaches poll. Defending champion Central Connecticu­t has been tabbed as the favorite, followed by Saint Francis U, Fairleigh Dickinson, Bryant, the Mount, Sacred Heart, Robert Morris, Long Island, Wagner, St. Francis Brooklyn and Merrimack. Last season, the Mountainee­rs qualified for the NEC Tournament for the first time since 1997. The Mount earned the No. 3 seed at last year’s NEC Tournament with a 4-2-2 league record while finishing with a 5-9-3 overall mark. Women’s college soccer: Adrian Peterson says he won’t be discussing financial woes that came to light over the summer. The Washington Redskins running back conducted his first interview of training camp Tuesday and declined to answer a question about pending legal action against him. Peterson was sued last month over failure to fully repay a $5.2 million loan and was ordered to pay $2.45 million to another creditor.
