On a night when Kenwood set out to show the local football world it was for real, No. 8 Milford Mill on Friday had other plans. The visiting No. 8 Millers took full advantage of mistakes by the error-prone Bluebirds, scoring the game's first 33 points in a 39-20 win. "We knew they were 4-0, coming to their house. They had their swag level a little high, so we wanted to make sure we jumped on them," Millers coach Reggie White said. "We knew we were better than we've shown. " Senior running back Jamaal Morant scored three touchdowns for Milford Mill (4-1 overall, 2-0 in Baltimore County's Div. I)

Havre de Grace. -- Down the fenceline I go, in the cold wind, doing an annual farm chore that hasn't much to do with farming -- inspecting the bluebird boxes. It's usually late February or early March when I do this, but this year I'm running behind.There are more than a dozen on trees and fenceposts around the farm, and I like to clean out last year's clutter and make minor repairs before the boxes are needed for nesting again. Lots of people do this. Bluebird boxes are everywhere these days, and bluebirds, rare when I was a child, are now abundant.

The Kenwood boys lacrosse team isn't filled with Division I college prospects and doesn't have near the depth than most teams. In fact, its roster only consists of 19 players, 17 of which are seniors.  But that hasn't stopped the Bluebirds from enjoying a breakthrough season. After claiming Baltimore County's Division II championship last week with a 12-2 win over defending champion Owings Mills, the Bluebirds enjoyed the program's biggest win when they upset longtime Baltimore County power Catonsville, 7-6, to open their region playoff run.  After knocking off Poly in the quarterfinal round, the Bluebirds (12-3)

First, we saw the brilliant blue fan of wings, then the rust-colored throat and breast. There it was; we'd seen our first Eastern bluebird swooping from tree to tree.Our Hampstead neighbor, Cheryl Wahl, reported seven more frolicking in her holly bushes. From now until July, the soft, sweet song of bluebirds -- hundreds of bluebirds -- will whistle as the birds munch insects and berries from Hampstead to Glen Rock, Pa.We have LeRoy Walker to thank for this. Over the past 25 years, he's built and posted more than 70 bluebird nesting houses on open acreage around his home in Millers.

When the Kenwood High football team convened for summer practice, the players learned they would not be destined for the regionals no matter how well they performed.The Bluebirds represent a Class 3A school playing a Baltimore County 2A schedule and therefore would probably not accumulate enough points to qualify for postseason play regardless of their record.Besides, coach Fred Myers vowed not to take another deserving team's spot because of the discrepancy."Everybody was down," said senior halfback Joe Cofield.

Kenwood's biggest weakness could be considered its major strength.The Bluebirds use only seven players -- six starters and one reserve, but that lack of depth has created a cohesive, strong-hitting attack. And No. 15 Kenwood didn't have to worry about fatigue, disposing of host Franklin in 1 hour, 20 minutes by taking three straight games, 15-6, 15-13, and 15-9, for the Class 3A North region title yesterday.The Bluebirds (18-1), whose only loss came against Loch Raven in the Baltimore County Championship game, will face Thomas Johnson in a Class 3A state semifinal match.

The Kenwood soccer team wasn't exactly on a roll when the regular season ended a few weeks ago. A seven-game winless streak had sent the Bluebirds to a 6-6-2 record. The offense hadn't been heard from for a while, causing the team to lose confidence with the playoffs coming up. And postseason play hadn't exactly been Kenwood's strength: The school hadn't won a playoff game in at least 30 years. But everything changed quickly. Sparked by a strong performance in a season-ending loss to No. 2 Archbishop Curley, Kenwood seemed to awaken as the playoffs began.

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.

Not too many people were happy last season when Kenwood and Eastern Tech's girls soccer teams tied, 1-1. Jeff and Tammi Kobal, however, couldn't have asked for better. They had a daughter on each team - Amber, a Kenwood defender, and Courtney, an Eastern Tech striker. This season, the Kobals haven't worried about neutrality. Courtney transferred to Kenwood and now both girls, along with their youngest sister Brittany, are starting for the Bluebirds. For Amber, a senior, having her sisters on the team is a great way to finish her high school career.

The improbable Class 4A state playoff run that belonged to the Kenwood boys soccer team came with a happy ending last night at UMBC. Junior midfielder Dominic Pagulario made sure early in overtime against No. 8 Old Mill, ripping a shot from the right side about 20 yards out that slightly skimmed off a Patriots defender close by before quickly finding the far left post to give the Bluebirds a 1-0 win and their first state championship in their first appearance....

Tremell Hargett and Josh Martin were a sophomore and a freshman, respectively, on the junior varsity last fall when Kenwood's varsity football team was routed by nearly 30 points at Parkville. "That was a blowout that broke our hearts," said Hargett, now a 6-foot, 215-pound junior. "That stayed with us all summer long and up to tonight. We couldn't wait to get back at them." Last night, Hargett and Martin helped the Bluebirds get their revenge, playing key roles in a stingy defensive effort that shut out the visiting 11th-ranked Knights, 10-0, in a Baltimore County 4A-3A League game before more than 1,000 partisan Kenwood fans.
