If Annapolis' Kristen Nicolini hadn't won the girls A1 race, yesterday's Anne Arundel County Invitational would have belonged to the representatives from Baltimore's private schools and Howard County.Calvert Hall, which rules the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and perhaps the entire metro area, got a 1-2-3 finish from Jonathan Dietrich, Cory Smith and Doug Stewart.Dietrich and Smith covered the rerouted 3-mile course at Annapolis High in 16 minutes, 44 seconds, and Stewart sprinted in seven seconds later.

The Anne Arundel County cross country championships often brought frustration to the Broadneck girls over the years. On Thursday, everything finally changed. No. 6 Broadneck placed five runners in the top 10 and rolled to a surprisingly easy victory over South River and No. 4 Severna Park in the race at Annapolis. The Bruins wanted to run as a pack and used the strategy to perfection. For the boys, top-ranked Severna Park had little trouble repeating as team champions. The individual titles both went to Annapolis runners as Hale Bullen set a course record with his win in the boys' race, and Sarah Sykora edged out Broadneck's Ellie Smith in the girls' race.

After figuring out that his girls had won the team title at yesterday's seventh annual Knights' Invite, Notre Dame Prep coach Ed Donnellan glared at his note pad, shook his head and lamented: "Just think what we would have done if Carrie Kroll was here."Kroll, the Pirates' No. 1 runner and one of the premier harriers in the Association of Independent Schools, couldn't make the trip to Baybrook Park because of a stress fracture in her right leg that is expected to sideline her for "at least four to six weeks."

Katie Williams' path to victory opened before her very eyes. For much of the girls race at the Howard County Striders Invitational at Centennial yesterday, Williams had trailed Atholton sophomore Alison Smith and Churchill senior Allison King. But when Smith and King mistakenly veered off the 3.1-mile course and into a thicket after the two-mile mark, Williams, a sophomore at Wilde Lake, seized the opportunity and captured her first invitational title in 21 minutes, 51.77 seconds. Despite Smith's error, Atholton captured the team crown over Centennial, 88-108.

So, with the regular season down to its final games, four teams remain in contention for the Anne Arundel County championship, scheduled to be decided at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at Annapolis High. Even better are the season-ending games that will determine which two teams earn spots. Today, No. 13 Chesapeake (11-0-1, 9-0-1)

Once considered a given to wind up in the trophy case at C. Milton Wright, the Harford County boys track and field championship is no longer an open and shut case. The added intrigue stems from the 77-59 victory by Bel Air over the Mustangs on Wednesday, which marked the first time in almost 13 years the C. Milton Wright boys lost a regular-season meet to a county opponent. Bel Air coach Joe Rose kept the victory in perspective because the Mustangs, hit hard by injuries on the boys' side, did hold out several of their top performers with the county championships looming.

Three teams are crowded atop the Howard County boys basketball standings, and only one of them will emerge as the league champion next week. Who it will be is still anyone's guess. It's been a wild, unpredictable year, with upsets and close games becoming the norm, but with only two games remaining, tonight's matchups should go a long way toward deciding which team will hoist the hardware this year. Long Reach (12-4 league, 14-5 overall) still controls its own destiny, although the Lightning has been standing on unsteady ground for the past month and missed a chance to clinch at least a tie for the title Tuesday with a 71-68 loss to Oakland Mills.

Milton Wright senior built a 20-second lead on a field that included McDonogh's star freshman, Kacie Remeto.Coogan, whose favorite tactic is to push the pace from start to finish, has set course records in three races this fall. Remeto, her former Harford Track Club teammate, has set two records herself, on her McDonogh course and in the Mercersberg (Pa.)

As expected, River Hill won both the boys and girls county championship team titles for an unprecedented third straight year, and River Hill's Lee McDuff won her third straight girls county title at Centennial yesterday. And as strong an accomplishment as that was for coach Earl Lauer's Hawks, a Bosnian refugee running his first season of cross country, Izudin Mehmedovic, stole most of the attention by upsetting Glenelg veteran Jon Goldsmith to win the boys championship by a second with a strong finishing kick.
