Annapolis officials know that local homeowners who restore and preserve their historic properties play a vital role in the city's architectural legacy. Bill and Judi Kardash, owners of the circa 1770 Colonial mansion Acton Hall, are some of these top players. They consider themselves the current stewards of the home, which sits on an acre of land on Spa Creek. Acton Hall is a perfect example of Georgian period architecture. The brick home features white trim, multipaned windows and a symmetric front elevation with a recessed center bay, along with well-proportioned wings that are adorned with pediments.

New development's name to honor Annapolis history Madison Homes has chosen a name for its Annapolis development on the downtown site of Anne Arundel Medical Center: Acton's Landing. Through historical research, the company said, it learned from a 1651 land survey that the site had been known as "Acton's Land" and was the property of Richard Acton, one of the first three known landowners on the Annapolis peninsula. "We believe the new name is an appropriate tribute to the original landowner," said Russell Rosenberger, president of Madison Homes, which plans to develop a community of single-family and duplex homes, townhouses and condominiums, along with a neighborhood park at the Acton Cove waterfront near Charles and Shaw streets.

It's the last game of the season, and De Andre Williams, 10, the Patterson Stars' goalie, hasn't let a puck slip past him yet. "Way to go, De Andre! Great save!" shouts coach Mark Conner from the sidelines. Teammate Donesha Parker, 12, glides across the ice with the grace of an Olympian and the grit of a speed skater, driving the puck into the opposing team's net with ease, scoring four, five times. Her brother Dante Moye, 11, also a player, is impressed. It's hard to imagine that just a few months earlier, De Andre, Donesha, Dante and many of their teammates had never stepped in an ice rink before.

While junior Joe Fletcher has emerged as Loyola's shutdown defenseman and seniors Scott Ratliff and Josh Hawkins have headlined one of the more prolific Rope units in Division I, Reid Acton has stood in the background. But that's not how coach Charley Toomey feels about the senior defenseman. Acton, a three-year starter, is a security blanket for the No. 5 Greyhounds (11-3), who will meet No. 8 Ohio State (10-3) in a semifinal of the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament at Hobart on Thursday night.

Towson senior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage (St. Mary's Ryken) received Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week honors Monday after a 19-save performance in a 7-6 win over then-No. 19 Hofstra on Saturday. It is the first conference honor for Wascavage, who shared the award with Penn State goalie Austin Kaut . Wascavage is ranked in the top five in the nation this week in saves per game (fourth, 13.82) and save percentage (fifth, .608). Other Division I men's honor: Loyola senior defenseman Reid Acton was named Eastern College Athletic Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Greyhounds hold Ohio State to just four goals and 23 shots in a 9-4 win Saturday in Columbus.

Top-ranked Loyola plans to open the season on Saturday against Delaware with a defenseman making his first career start. Senior T.J. Harris has played in seven contests in his first three years, but he will join junior Joe Fletcher and senior Reid Acton on close defense. “He's looked good in the scrimmages,” coach Charley Toomey said of Harris. “We'll see if he's prepared to be a 60-minute defenseman or if we have to use [sophomore] Pat Frazier off the bench. T.J.'s a senior, and he certainly looked good through the fall and through the scrimmages.

Former Loyola University lacrosse player Tim McDermott has joined the Virginia men's program as a volunteer coach, as announced by head coach Dom Starsia .  “I couldn't be more pleased to announce Tim's addition to our staff,” Starsia said. “I have known Tim for some time now and have come to admire him as a person and a student-athlete.  He will work closely with our faceoff men and goalies, and will be involved in all aspects of the program.” McDermott was a midfielder for three seasons at Division III SUNY-Geneseo, where he was a two-time All-American and led the NCAA in faceoff winnning percentage in 2006.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun publishes a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Loyola junior defenseman Reid Acton, who ended Denver senior attackman Mark Matthews' streak of 39 straight games with a goal in the Greyhounds' 12-9 victory Saturday night. How would you assess your play against Matthews? Mark's a really good player. I actually grew up playing with Mark and covering him. [Both Acton and Matthews are Ontario natives.]

The box score from No. 2 Loyola's 12-9 victory over No. 10 Denver Saturday night shows that nine different Greyhounds scored goals, including three from junior attackman Mike Sawyer and two from senior attackman Eric Lusby. There are no numbers next to Reid Acton's name, but what's more important is the lack of numbers associated with Pioneers senior attackman Mark Matthews. The junior defenseman snapped Matthews' streak of 39 consecutive games with a goal - which had been the second longest active streak in Division I. Matthews misfired on 10 shots and finished with just one assist and three turnovers, and Loyola coach Charley Toomey took great pains to single out Acton.

Lucy C. Acton, a former Evening Sun feature writer who later was editor of Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, formerly Maryland Horse Magazine, died June 7 of cancer of the appendix at Gilchrist Hospice Care. The Timonium resident was 63. "She was a deliberate person and real dedicated to the Maryland horse racing industry. She really cared and that was her life," said Joseph B. Kelly, retired Washington Star racing editor and turf historian. "It is a very complicated business, and she wrote about and participated in every phase of it," said Mr. Kelly, who had worked with Ms. Acton's father, Wilton Snowden Carter, in the late 1940s when both were young reporters covering racing for The Baltimore Sun and the old Evening Sun. "Lucy was a very quiet person but a real hard worker and a little giant," he said.
