Chris Robinson could see the kid was an athlete. Naturally, he pictured her with a lacrosse stick.It was winter of the 1995-96 school year. Halfway through her freshman year, the kid had transferred to Mount Hebron from High Point High School in Prince George's County. She was good enough to make the varsity basketball team."She was quick and had some good athletic ability," said Robinson, who was beginning his first season as coach of the highly-successful Vikings girls lacrosse team."So I pursued her," he said, by trying to whet her interest in lacrosse.

Becca Parrow never realized how much her Harford County swimming title meant to her until she thought she might not be able to defend it. The first gold medalist in Joppatowne swimming history, Parrow won the 100-yard freestyle at the Harford County championships last winter and finished second in the 50-yard free. She seemed likely to win at least one of the two again this season -- until she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. The injury occurred a week into swimming practice while playing soccer in the Harford County Senior All-Star Game.

Television's most forthright handling of the AIDS issue draws toward a resolution this weekend as ABC's "Life Goes On" prepares to leave the air before a probable series finale due in May.But contrary to some earlier predictions, the AIDS-afflicted teen character of Jesse (Chad Lowe) does not die in tomorrow's final episode of a four-show "arc" dealing with the issue (7 p.m., WJZ-Channel 13). Instead, he resolves to fight his disease through diet and other treatments."The story is not the story of someone dying from AIDS, but of someone living with AIDS," Mr. Lowe said earlier this week.

For Becca Meyers, every sound heard, every syllable spoken, seems a small miracle.The Timonium toddler lived in silence for the first two years of her life. Her parents' conversation, her siblings' laughter -- even the wail of a fire engine -- were shut out by profound deafness.It wasn't until a controversial electronic device was implanted deep inside her ear that she began to hear -- and then to talk, laugh and sing. Since early last year, when Becca's cochlear implant was activated, her vocabulary has grown from simple words such as "home," "up" and "off" to multisyllabic icons including "McDonald's" and "Nintendo."

John Waters and Walt Disney on the same wavelength is not something I ever would have predicted. But then, the one thing that makes even stranger bedfellows than politics is popular culture -- particularly when there's a mega-hit like the Broadway adaptation of Waters' 1988 film, Hairspray, involved. Disney's ABC Family cable channel tonight will present Beautiful Girl, a made-for-TV movie produced by Disney's Touchstone Productions about a young woman who becomes an unlikely beauty pageant contestant.

The Seton Keough field hockey team is having a year to remember in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference, and one of the primary reasons is the play of goalkeeper Becca Wallace. The senior, who transferred to the school two years ago from North County, has made 76 saves this season and shut out the entire B Conference. She has allowed only five goals out of conference to top-ranked public schools and A Conference teams as the Gators have built a 16-3-2 overall record, including 11-0 in conference.

"I don't know where you want this discussion to go." Anyone in any relationship has said such words at some point, trying to gauge the safest response, struggling to figure out what the other person wants to hear, wondering if it is better to be elusive than honest. But when that line is spoken by a husband to his wife in David Lindsay-Abaire's 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, "Rabbit Hole," it registers with a deep pain. For these characters, every word is a land mine, capable of setting off the most dreadful reactions; every conversation, even on the most mundane of topics, can trigger a dangerous mood.

volleyball Player of the Year Becca Webb, Fallston, hitter Webb came into her own this season and was a major factor in Fallston's run to the Class 3A East regional finals. The senior helped the No. 6 Cougars (17-1) go unbeaten in the regular season, losing only to top-ranked Centennial in the regional final. Playing most of the year with tendonitis in her foot, Webb was often double- and triple-blocked at the net. She still managed 183 kills and a .408 hitting percentage. The main improvement in her game was her ability to place the ball and read defenses.

One of the worst things about any big trouble is the way it isolates us at the precise moment we're most in need of comfort. It matters not one whit if the people sharing our dinner table or office cubicle are going through the identical crisis, because no two traumas are exactly the same. Every loss, every grief is as individual and specifically coded as a set of fingerprints.

When Pikesville's girls lacrosse team began this season, one of the players' goals was to improve enough to draw some attention. The Panthers did just that two weeks ago, when they turned a few heads with a 12-11 win over Hereford, one of Baltimore County's most competitive teams. "We just wanted to be recognized as a program," Panthers junior midfielder Morgan Appel said. "Usually we haven't been competitive and we had never beaten a team like Hereford. It took us awhile to understand that we could do it. Now, we realize we have to play our hardest and we can compete."
