South River’s boys basketball team will look to forget the woes of its 16-loss season as they take on Chesapeake High in the first round of the MPSSA Regional playoffs Friday night. With only six wins on the year, the team didn’t dominate in county play, but head coach Mike Wasilenko said hustle and heart are essential to moving past the first round. Wasilenko discussed Friday’s matchup with Patch and what his team must do to come away with a win against Chesapeake. “Offensively, [Chesapeake High] is a very balanced team. You have to do a great job of keeping their point guard out of the paint, while still closing out hard on their shooters,” he said. “We believe it takes five guys doing the right thing on every possession to get a stop …

John Mattingly has become a staple for South River sports, and with a booming voice and eclectic playlist, many couldn't imagine the athletic events without him.
Standing at 6 feet 9 inches tall, John Mattingly is a hard guy to miss. But when it comes to his largest contribution at South River High, it’s not his stature that beckons recognition—it’s his voice. Mattingly has become the unofficial voice of South River athletics as the primary announcer for some of the Seahawks’ teams, including football, basketball and lacrosse. The father of three boys and one daughter, Mattingly began announcing lacrosse games for the Seahawks almost 14 years ago. After his daughter graduated in 2008, he was invited to continue announcing by South River’s principal William Myers, and he’s been doing it ever since. One of his favorite parts of announcing is providing an additional element to the game. “When you can …

EDGEWATER—The Arundel High boys basketball team didn't take too long to get back in the win column after suffering its first loss of the season. Rebounding from a last-second loss to Old Mill on Tuesday, the Wildcats used a stingy defense and strong inside game to trounce South River 79-50 in the regular season finale. “Sometimes a loss helps you reflect,” Arundel head coach Jeff Starr said. “Hopefully we learned something from [the Old Mill] game, and tonight we showed we can bounce back and we move forward.” Junior forward Dexter Dunbar led all Arundel scorers with 14 points, his highest output of the season. Twelve Wildcats scored at least one point. Arundel took control early, jumping out to a 40-20 halftime lead. South River cut …
