As a mom of three boys in a sports-loving household, I am no stranger to discussing the day in sports at the dinner table: the Top 10 plays of the week, the wise picks for fantasy football and predictions for upcoming games. Last month, I found myself unprepared for a discussion that came up about Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old Little League female baseball phenom. "Isn't it great that Mo'ne Davis is kicking butt at the Little League World Series?" I said with enthusiasm as I poured the milk.

"We've never been to this meet, and we were kind of looking around and we figured, lets try the Barnhart," Centennial boys coach Al Dodds said. The Eagles' boys finished with 49 points and held off Loyola (76)

Digital Harbor was having a little trouble getting some separation from Southside Academy in boys basketball Tuesday night. But a tripledouble from Corey Mendez and a switch in defense helped the host Rams pull away and win, 55-38. Mendez finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Digital Harbor (2-0). The Rams' half-court trap defense gave them a 10-point lead at halftime, but a switch to a full-court press pushed the lead up to 17 points in the second half.

Baltimore County's decision to ban boys from girls' sports teams might be logical in the context of the specific conflict that erupted when a girls' softball team from Parkville walked off the field after discovering that some of their opponents were male. ,, But in a broader context, the ruling is unwise.Given the vagaries of budgets, gender-specific teams or activities frequently have the effect of diminishing opportunitiesfor all children. Not only does the new county policy imply that girls will be kept off all-boys' teams, but also that a boy who wants to play field hockey, for instance, could find there is not enough support in his school, or district, for all male-teams and, as a result, be unable to participate.

The Howard County cross country championship meet, held Tuesday at Centennial, was a day of tradition. River Hill, which has now won six girls team titles (2003, 2005, 2008-2011) and four boys team titles (2002-2004, 2011) in the past decade, swept the team titles for the first time since 2003. River Hill also swept the boys and girls team titles each year from 1998 to 2000. Atholton crowned its fourth boys champion in the past seven years, junior Gary Smolyak, and Oakland Mills' Tiffany Lang, whose family name is synonymous with running in Columbia, won her first individual title.

After more than a decade of working with women to combat the spread of HIV, a West Baltimore nonprofit organization will now share its teen pregnancy prevention message with both girls and boys. Women Accepting Responsibility has worked with teen girls, new mothers and incarcerated women since 1995, but the programs were always gender-specific. But the group celebrated a more than $4 million grant Tuesday from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Adolescent Health that will allow it to reach young men as well.

Laurel Boys and Girls Club officials have not only decided to put off plans to open a charter high school in their Montgomery Street headquarters indefinitely, but they will not renew the lease of its current tenant, Princeton Day Academy, for next year. According to club president Levet Brown, the charter school is being delayed because club officials have not been able to raise the money needed to bring the building up to code in order to house a school in the facility. Brown said Princeton Day, a private high school with about 40 students, was using space in the annex portion of the building free of charge.
