Atholton football team forfeits season opener

Atholton's football team will have to forfeit its season opener against Glenelg for holding a summer practice a week earlier than the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association allows. Raiders coach Kyle Schmitt reported the violation as soon as he realized it and said he misinterpreted the rule, according to a news release issued Monday by Howard County coordinator of athletics Mike Williams. The Sept. 2 game at Glenelg at 7p.m. will go on as scheduled. The Raiders finished 8-2 last season and reached the regional semifinals, where they fell to eventual state champion Wilde Lake.
