On several levels, Peabody Opera Theatre accomplished a great deal with its production of Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream. " The staging by Garnett Bruce was consistently engaging, with plenty of humor and enough sensitivity for work's ethereal side. The student cast acquitted itself well, in some cases remarkably well. And, most impressive of all, things were really cooking in the pit (I attended Saturday), with Hajime Teri Murai coaxing careful, subtly colorful work from the Peabody Concert Orchestra all night.

Loch Raven setter Shannon Towner has a simple explanation as to why her team seems to play better with its back against the wall."I think it's just the pressure," said The Baltimore Sun's 1993 City-County Player of the Year. "We see that we're going to lose if we don't start doing something."Yesterday, after getting humbled in the first game by No. 6 Atholton in the Class 2A state championship match, second-ranked Loch Raven did something.It swept its nervousness aside and won three straight games to capture its first state title since 1988, defeating Atholton, 2-15, 15-11, 15-11, 15-8 at Catonsville Community College.

Until recently, Amanda Williams never thought of herself as much of an athlete.The Hammond senior said her brother, Chris, 22, and a student at West Virginia State College, was the athlete in the family. "It was always one of those stereotypical things -- Chris was the athlete and I was always the smart one," said Williams, 16.Today, she's still the smart one with a 3.47 grade-point average and hopes of studying pre-med at Harvard next year. But now Williams also could stake a claim as the athletic one, too.Although she dabbled in soccer as an 8-year-old before asthma sidelined her, Williams didn't find her niche until high school.

This time, Atholton volleyball coach Sybil Kessinger had nothing up her sleeve to contend with No. 7 Glenelg.Last week, Kessinger promised to wear black lipstick to school after the Raiders rebounded to beat Lackey, but yesterday Glenelg proved way too consistent for such a deal to save the Raiders.The defending state Class 2A champion Gladiators (2-0 overall, 1-0 league) played excellent defense and let visiting Atholton make the mistakes en route to a 15-9, 15-7, 15-12 victory."Glenelg is an incredibly good defensive team," said Kessinger.

After a frustrating season in which Atholton missed out on the Class 3A playoffs to several weaker Baltimore teams, the Raiders should be in good position for a return to the regionals.Dropping back into Class 2A, the Raiders no longer have to worry about posting a strong season and staying home at playoff time."As a coach, I want to see us get back to the playoffs," said Raiders coach Jon Peterson, whose squad did not play enough 3A and 4A teams to accumulate the points necessary to edge the city schools last season.
