The $10 increase per credit, approved last week by the Arnold college's Board of Trustees, means that the average full-time student will pay an extra $120 in total tuition for the spring term. The tuition comes at a time when an increasing number of students statewide are choosing community colleges because four-year state universities also are raising tuition.

Since it's an odd-numbered year, it must be Severn's turn to win the annual girls lacrosse showdown with neighborhood rival Severna Park. Over the past six years, Severn has won in the odd-numbered years and the Falcons in the even ones. However, the Admirals' defense had more to do with their 11-6 win Thursday night at the Anne Arundel Community College Tournament than the date did. In the battle for local bragging rights, the No. 12 Admirals (3-2) kept Severna Park's offense from sustaining any rhythm after the No. 8 Falcons rallied from two goals down to tie midway through the first half.
