1 MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 14, 1987 HIGH SCHOOLCOLLEGE PM THE RECORD D-9 College tests player's By Ron Fox Record Staff Writer i Kevin Hughes came away reeling from his first Fordham University exam last week. The honor student from Paul VI was not having trouble in the classroom. But the physical examination for the basketball team left Hughes rethinking his future. The 6-foot-2 Clifton resident could have had scholarships for football or baseball, and he could have received financial aid from a school with a smaller basketball program. Instead, he chose Ford-ham's big-time program. Now the shooting-guard candidate understands what he's up against as a nonscholarship walk-on. "I was the smallest guy at the physical," he said days later, sounding somewhat bewildered. "They were all 6-foot-4 and bigger. I guess I just looked like some little freshman out for a tryout." Hughes says he was offered grants for football from Allegheny and from Muhlenberg. Both wanted him as a wide receiver. Hughes also could have had a sweet deal at New Hampshire, for either football or baseball. "But Fordham plays teams like North Carolina in basketball.and my lifelong goal was to play Divi- From BOYS SOCCER Page 0-8 B-PSL ICING Don Bosco Tech Coach Nick Bucci (eighth season) Last year 10-8-2 Top players back Senior forward Fernando Barboto, senior sweeper Carlos Caminos, senior halfback Marco Soto, senior halfback Nino Giovatto, and junior stopper Luigi Gul-liano. Outlook The Rams play in a very tough division, but Bucci has some talent. Barboto - and Caminos are All-Passaic County players who know how to score, but OBT's biggest problem will be plugging holes on defense. Elmwood Park , Coach Lulgl Abramo (30th season) Last year 0-13-3 Top players back Senior fullback Harnish Patez, senior sweeper John Priff, senior forward Patrick Scaglione, senior forward Vincent Scaglione, and junior midfielder Oscar Wollenberg. Sportfriends win opener WAYNE Rich Brendli of Pe-quannock scored a goal and assisted on another to lead Sportfriends to a 2-0 victory over Adriatic yesterday in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League opener for both teams. College field hockey MADISON Sally Gormley scored the game-winner as Drew rallied for four goals in the third period to top Swarthmore, 5-4, Saturday and complete a sweep in a women's field hockey double-header. In the first game, Drew whipped Western Connecticut, 3-0, getting goals from Ann Gunster, Pequan-nock's Lorraine Maloney, and Bonnie Ethridge. Other goal scorers for Drew in the second game included Ethridge, Maloney, and Jane D'A-lonzo. Football WORCESTER, Mass. Holy Cross linebacker Rod McGovern of Oradell has been named the Colonial League Defensive Player of the Week. McGovern, who played at Ber- . gen Catholic High School, had 11 solo tackles and assisted on 13 Saturday as the Crusaders opened their football season with a 34-24 victory over Army. Softball SPRINGFIELD, Mo. Pinch hitter Sam McDowell singled to drive in a run with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift Clancys of Paterson over Seeburg, 2-1, in the first game of the Ama-tuer Softball Association Men's Major Fast-Pitch national tournament.

"I dreamed about it, and enough people told me I had a shot at it, so I'm trying it." Hughes says Paul VI coach Bob Stolarz; athletic director Joe Oli-vola, a former coach; his parents, and his uncle Rick supported his decision. "He Rick has a big influence on me; he's younger in his thirties and I can relate to him well," Hughes says. "He played at Essex Catholic." Education was another consideration for Hughes, who had a grade point average of 3.35 (on a 4.0 scale) at Paul VI. He plans to study business management. "It's a good academic school," Hughes says of Fordham. But his thoughts return to being dwarfed by Fordham's basketball candidates. "After seeing those guys, I guess it's a good possibility that I've been welcomed to the real world. But I felt good when I played in the Bergen-Passaic All-Star Game. Most of the people who played in that game are going to big schools, and I believe I held my own there." DIVISION Outlook Abramo says the Crusaders have more offensive punch than a year ago, but they lack experience at fullbacks and goalkeeper. Garfield Coach Larry Bonito (sixth season) Last year 13-4-1 Top players back Senior fullback John Ouran, junior forward Rich Rivera, junior halfback Paul Santos, and senior forward Stan Krawontka. Outlook The loss of five starters, including Mendo Gulevski (30 goals), will make the Boilermakers a long shot to repeat as B-PSL King champions. Junior forward John Grivc and junior goalie Mark Pieklo are expected to make a major impact. Hawthorne Coach John Guidice (sixth season) Last year 5-10-1 Top players back Senior halfback Chris f WARMTH, STYLE, VALVE. IT MUST BE WOOLRICH.

He was all-county as a guard in basketball, scoring 21.7 points per game. And he was honorable mention all-county as a shortstop in baseball, hitting .418 with a school-record 41 hits, 25 runs batted in, and 35 runs scored. Hughes could return to football in his sophomore year if he doesn't make the grade in basketball. He concedes he has a severe case of the autumn itch. "I miss football," he says. "It's difficult not playing after all these years. I even went over to Paul VI to watch practice." That's not the only practice Hughes has attended. He checked out Fordham's team, too. "If I don't make it in basketball, I could always wait until next year and play football," he says. "They have a Division III program here, and I know I could play here. I had been contacted while in high school by Fordham for football not basketball and I wasn't interested." Some athletes would appreciate having multiple options. But versatility was a burden to Hughes. "It was all going through my mind at once, and it was a real pain," he says. Young, senior fullback Robert Derkces, and senior goalie Caam Ano.

Lodi Coach Lou Jasmine (seventh season) Last year 15-4-1 Top playars back Senior goalkeeper Veton Ismailovski, senior stopper Mike Maksymin, senior forward Vinnie DiMarco, junior striker John Beites, junior forward David Gregorat, junior halfback Tony Domingues, junior defender Joe Rodrigues, junior defender Steve Bakreski, and junior defender John Lopez. Outlook Things look very good for the Rams, who had their best record ever last season en route to a state title. A balanced offense and outstanding defense should add up to another first-rate team. Mahwah Coach Hank Saxon (seventh season) Last year 16-3-2 Top players back Senior goalkeeper Jeff Clark, senior forward Rich Lustig, senior forward Brian McDonald, senior sweeper Mike Tilton, senior halfback Jamie Klein, and senior midfielder Bob Bailor.

"I'm sure it's tough monentari-ly on my parents," he says. "But they went along with me and encouraged me. They said they just wanted me to be happy." In the next few weeks, Hughes may get a better idea of how he fits in with Fordham's other basketball candidates. He is getting to know them during conditioning workouts at the school. When tryouts begin next month, he'll find out for sure if he made the right choice. and Clark handles tne goalkeeping duties. The problem for Saxon is finding replacements for two defenders and two midfielders who graduated. Promising sophomores who could help are Chris Trembley and Darren Baugardt. Manchester Coach George Homsany (first season) Last year 10-10 Top players back Senior halfback Pierre Atme, senior halfback Basem Shaker, junior , forward Dominick Slampone. Junior forward Ed Smith, junior sweeper Jess Homsany, junior midfielder Victor D'Ambrosio, and junior fullback Chris Hubner. Outlook Seven returning players should ' give coach Homsany a solid nucleus. The key area is defense, where four starters graduated. Juniors Kevin Leonhard and Fred Stans- -field, and freshmen Rickey Rivera, Vince ' Slampone, Brian Heres, Steve Cipolletta are , battling for the starting spots. Passaic Tech Coach Jim Hill (eighth season) Last year 7-11-1 Top players back Senior forward Gus Mor-amarco, senior midfielder Vince Morello, senior midfielder Sal Moya, and sophomore forward Al Donado. Outlook The Bulldogs are solid up the middle, and they are capable of pulling some surprises if they can come up with one or two consistent scorers. COMPILED BY THOMAS J.

Cheryl Stetz, a junior from Wellington, is expected to be the key returning player this fall for the William Paterson volleyball squad. Stetz, a setter, earned second-team All-New Jersey Athletic Conference honors last year. Lorl Thiemann, a 5-foot-6-inch junior from Ridgefield Park, should lead the Manhattanville volleyball team, which went 30-19 one year ago.
