Archbishop Curley wrestling coach Gregg Kessler resigned Wednesday to pursue a new career with a consulting firm. Kessler taught and coached at the school for six years, building an 84-21 record.

John Cooper will be Kenwood's new wrestling coach, according to the school. Cooper is a resident of Nottingham and a Baltimore County police officer. But what makes him the school's new choice as the Bluebirds' coach is that the former Archbishop Curley wrestler can bring a lot of experience to the team. Cooper was a two-time MSA wrestling champion and a National Prep champ when he wrestled for the Friars. "Having a person with Coach Cooper's passion for the sport of wrestling bodes well for Kenwood," athletic director Derek Maki said.

Archbishop Curley's Nicholas Freeman may be the smallest back-up nose tackle in high school football. At 5 feet 1 and 190 pounds, Freeman gives away a lot of brawn to the centers he lines up against. But don't underestimate him. Archbishop Curley coach Sean Murphy calls him "the heart and soul" of the 3-0 Friars team that upset Loyola, 39-7, last weekend and jumped to No. 12 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 poll. Freeman, a lineman since he started playing football at 10 years old, said he loves the trenches because it's where everything starts.

Costes, now a senior, orally committed to play baseball at Maryland on Friday, the day he was offered a full scholarship. "I like the philosophy of the coaching staff," Costes said on Sunday.

For proof of the expanding reach of lacrosse around the globe, look no further than the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships, which begin Thursday night in the Denver suburbs. A record 38 teams, representing nations from six continents, will take part in the quadrennial event over the next 10 days at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. That's an impressive number for an event that began with only four countries in 1967 and had just six as recently as 1994.

One of the area's top defensive ends, D'Avanzo dominated on both sides of the ball in the No. 14 Friars' 18-13 season-opening victory over Patterson at the I-95 Kickoff Classic on Friday. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound senior had 14 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, a recovered fumble and a blocked punt. At wingback, he made a one-handed grab on third-and-long for a 16-yard gain that set up the Friars' first touchdown. His sack and forced fumble set up the second score, and his blocked punt led to the game-winning touchdown, which he scored on a 3-yard run with two minutes left in the game.
