"We need to get back to basics," said Thomas, master of the Maryland district for the Knights of Columbus.

Archbishop Spalding forward Jordan Clinton "is having a breakout season," Cavaliers coach Deb Taylor said. Clinton's success on the basketball court is not surprising considering that her father, Tim Clinton, played at Glen Burnie and that her mother, Debbie Garrison Clinton, played for Brooklyn Park, where she scored 1,630 career points and was a member of state championship teams in 1985, 1986 and 1987. Jordan's younger brother, Trey Clinton, is on the Mount St. Joseph junior varsity team.

Archbishop Spalding midfielder Marissa Brown sent a perfect cross to the middle in the closing minutes of the game against visiting Catonsville on Monday, and forward Sarah Ensor one-timed a shot that was headed on goal. But Comets defender Lauren Vogelpohl was where she needed to be - between Ensor and the goal - to block the shot. The ball was cleared immediately after. If there was one play that depicted the solid 80 minutes of play from both sides, it was that one. Both teams had scoring chances, and both simply played better defense as No. 4 Spalding and No. 13 Catonsville played to a 0-0 draw.
