College Roundup: Maine Maritime placed on probation

From Staff And News Services

CASTINE — The NCAA is placing Maine Maritime’s football team on probation for two years and vacating its participation in the 2009 Division III tournament because of scholarship violations.

The NCAA Division III Committee on Infractions says Maine Maritime failed to properly monitor creation and awarding of four scholarships that improperly included athletics participation as criteria.

Two of the scholarships gave preference to students-athletes, while the other two required participation in athletics for eligibility. All told, nine student-athletes received more than $5,000 between 2007 and 2012. During that period, Maine Maritime played in the first round of the 2009 tournament but failed to advance.

The NCAA, school and individuals agreed to the summary disposition. Additional education on NCAA rules is part of the settlement.

(10) MIAMI 27, NORTH CAROLINA 23: Dallas Crawford had a 3-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left to give the Hurricanes a victory at Chapel Hill, N.C.

Crawford’s short score ended a 90-yard drive by the Hurricanes (6-0, 2-0 ACC) and capped his own big performance in the backfield after Miami lost top rusher Duke Johnson to an early injury. Crawford finished with 137 yards on 33 carries and two touchdowns to help Miami barely avoid a big upset.

The Hurricanes won despite Stephen Morris throwing four interceptions while the defense surrendered a season-high 500 yards against the Tar Heels’ no-huddle scheme.

But Miami got the stop it needed at the end, with Bryn Renner’s heave into the end zone from the Miami 28 falling incomplete on the final play.

FIELD HOCKEY

ST. JOSEPH’S 2, SALEM STATE 0: Theresa Hendrix scored goals in both halves as the Monks (11-2) blanked the Vikings (6-6) at Salem, Mass.

Emma Astbury and Mariah Farrell combined on the shutout for the Monks, who won despite being outshot 8-2.
