In each of his three years as the Atholton football coach, Kyle Schmitt has led the Raiders to the playoffs. After graduating 19 players from last season's 10-2 team, the Raiders don't have the same level of experience, but they've pulled through a couple of close games to start the season with a 2-0 record. Schmitt, 31, played college football at Maryland, where he started 27 games on the offensive line at center or guard. He spent the 2005 preseason with the Minnesota Vikings then played in Europe in 2006.

As a four-year starter for the No. 2 River Hill girls soccer team, All-Metro forward Alex Hamer has scored more than her share of big goals. The one she put in Thursday against Atholton was right up there. The Hawks were celebrating Senior Night with a chance to wrap up their fourth straight Howard County championship and Hamer made it happen. Finding space between defenders, she ran on to a pass from Lauren Hessler and buried a shot from 14 yards away with 18 minutes left, giving River Hill a 1-0 win over the visiting Raiders.

The first priority for No. 2 River Hill in Friday night's Class 3A East regional football game against Atholton was to get off to a good start. Three weeks ago, the Hawks saw the No. 15 Raiders complete two long passes to jump out to a two-touchdown lead, but not this time. Nick Bonhag and Brent Kluge scored in the first seven minutes as the host Hawks got the jump on Atholton offensively and their defense played its usual stingy role en route to a 30-3 victory. This is the fifth straight regional championship for the Hawks, who won their 40th straight game.

No. 12 Archbishop Curley 53, Chesapeake-BC 0: The host Friars (5-0) opened a 41-point first quarter with a 76-yard opening kickoff return by Deonte Harris and rolled past the Bayhawks (1-4)

Atholton did its part when it beat Mount Hebron last week to finish the regular season with a 17-2 mark in Howard County. All the No. 10 Raiders (18-3) needed was for Centennial to upset frontrunner Oakland Mills to be declared county champions. "I remember walking to the locker room after we won and asking coach [Jared Albert] what happened in that game," senior forward and captain Michael Bernetti said. At the time, that game was only in the third quarter, so the waiting game was on. Text messages provided updates and teammates were sharing what they could find out. Finally, the news arrived: Centennial upset Oakland Mills in overtime.

Upon reading articles in the Baltimore Sun and the Howard County Times (Aug. 18, "Practice violation costs Atholton first game of 2011"), the thought occurred to me that nobody from Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association has commented on the situation. This was one 7-on-7 football practice that was inadvertently held less than one week prior to the time when no violation would have occurred. Further, as far as the kids, families and coaches were aware of at the time, no violation had occurred.

The Reservoir girls soccer team executed its plan to near perfection in the first half of Tuesday's early round playoff game against Howard County rival Atholton. The Gators were first to most every ball, connecting passes to create scoring chances and organized defensively when needed. The only thing missing was a goal, but they were determined to score in the second half. And they did. Sophomore forward Kayla Pindell scored the games only goal in the 46th minute to help Reservoir secure the 1-0 win over Atholton in the Class 3A East Section II semifinal in Fulton.

The sophomore captured the individual girls title at the District V Golf Championships Friday at Fairway Hills Golf Club in Columbia, shooting an even-par 70 to edge Arundel's Elyse Smidinger by one stroke. After watching Smidinger score an eagle on the final hole, Nguyen went on to sink a six-foot birdie putt to win the title. Last year, Nguyen finished second to Smidinger at the district and state tournament. In addition to capturing the district title on Friday, Nguyen also won her second straight Howard County championship.

The No. 4 Atholton baseball team's bats came alive late in the game to secure a 6-4 win over Marriotts Ridge in a Howard County league game Friday afternoon. Marriotts Ridge starter Ethan Rice had retired nine out of 10 batters and had a 2-1 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth, as the Mustangs (11-6) tried to secure their second victory over the Raiders (16-3) this season. "He was doing a great job placing his pitches and keeping us off balance," Raiders coach Kevin Kelly said.

Manchester Valley reached the midway point of its field hockey season Tuesday and enjoyed a 3-0 road win over previously unbeaten Winters Mill in both teams' first county matchup of the year. Manchester Valley (5-1, 1-0) had two goals before the game was 10 minutes old, thanks to scores by senior Lauren Swam and junior Kira Mitchell. Senior Madi Gary added a third goal with 1 minute, 11 seconds remaining in the first half, and the Mavericks had all the momentum. Rosalia Cappadora had two assists for the winners, who won their fifth in a row after starting the season with a loss to Roland Park.

Atholton High School's Miles Walker recently captured the state's top prize in an American Legion national government instruction program, an accomplishment that for the 16-year-old rising senior was nearly a lifetime in the making. The Columbia resident was an infant when his mother, Lisa Walker Woodyard, first read about the Boys State program in the memoir of President Bill Clinton, who attended as a 16-year-old himself. The regimented instruction program was launched by the American Legion in 1935 to counter the Soviet Union's Young Pioneer camps and according to the American Legion strives to teach civic duty via role playing as state and local politicians.

Acker had a dream season for the No. 6 Raiders, who finished the season 18-2 and 17-0 in Howard County in the regular season. The senior batted .541 in 61 at-bats, contributing 33 hits, 10 doubles, four home runs, two triples and nine stolen bases. He scored 36 runs, struck out only three times and was named Howard County Player of the Year by county coaches. "Brady was a leader on our team, both vocally and by example," Atholton coach Jon Dupski said. "The other players respond to him and the example he sets.

Atholton sophomore Matt Sklar first picked up a tennis racquet when he was 5 years old and started playing competitively when he was 10. But when he came to Atholton last year, he saw tennis differently. He has enjoyed and thrived in the team atmosphere and loves the support he receives and gives to teammates. After reaching the state tournament playing doubles with partner George Mao last year - they finished 24-2 - Sklar moved to No. 1 singles this season and has excelled. After capturing the Howard County singles title and leading the Raiders to their third straight Howard County Cup team crown on Saturday, he took an 18-1 mark into District 5 region play on Thursday.

Colleen Regan pitched a complete-game shutout and Faith Kujawa delivered at the plate as No. 11 Glenelg got over its early-round postseason jitters to defeat Atholton, 4-0, in a Class 3A East region second-round softball game Monday. The Gladiators put together one of their better all-around performances of the season. "The biggest thing we talked to the girls about was that last year felt great at 20-0 [in the regular season] and no one can take that undefeated season away from them, but that one loss came at the wrong time," said Glenelg coach Ray Gerstner, whose top-seeded teams had lost in the second round of the playoffs the past two seasons.
