The newest addition to Hunter Ritter's trophy stand is shaped like a stop sign, made of wood and has a gold medal placed in the middle of it. The John Carroll senior earned the wrestling hardware in May after winning the FILA Cadet Freestyle National Championships in Akron, Ohio. Ritter went 5-0 at 85 kilograms - roughly 187 pounds - en route to the title. While the first-place finish was the culmination of long hours in the practice room, it was merely the beginning of an opportunistic and eventful couple of months - Ritter is set to compete in the FILA Cadet World Championships, which runs from July 15-20 in Slovakia.

A week after a Baltimore County police cadet was accused of stealing drugs from the department's evidence room, prosecutors said they had dropped charges against a defendant in a case in which some of the drugs were seized. The trial of 50-year-old Joseph Thorn was scheduled to begin Thursday in Baltimore County District Court. But with the case seven years old and the drugs now missing, State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger said, "we decided the most reasonable thing to do was to dismiss the case.

The No. 1 Archbishop Spalding girls basketball team led for most of the game, but St. John's (D.C.) slowly began coming back. And in the fourth quarter, the Cadets (31-1) had a scoring breakout to win, 54-44, in the championship game of the Bishop Walsh Invitational tournament in Cumberland on Saturday night. The Cavaliers (29-2) led 14-8 after the first quarter, but St. John's won the next two quarters, 9-6 and 17-16. Spalding's 36-34 lead at the start of the fourth quarter quickly evaporated during a 20-8 scoring onslaught.

Army cadets reportedly stole and returned Navy's three goat mascots - Bill XXXII, Bill XXXIII and Bill XXXIV - in a maneuver called "Operation Good Shepherd" this month. You can see film of the action on YouTube. So what happened yesterday? "Just a little pep rally," Army spokesman Frank DeMaro said. Military Academy cadets staged "Goat Buster Spirit Mission" at West Point in anticipation of Saturday's Army-Navy game at M&T Bank Stadium. You can see a photo of that on the United States Military Academy at West Point site.

Half a dozen Anne Arundel County police officers-in-training received a one- to two-second squirt of pepper spray directly to the eyes this week, amid temperatures that pushed 100 degrees. "God, it hurts!" one red-faced cadet screamed. "Please give me a wet rag!" another pleaded. "It is very severely painful, ma'am," another said, grimacing, to his training officer. The cadets were not being disciplined, and they were not being hazed. Enduring a spritz of pepper spray is part of the six months of training that every Anne Arundel County police officer must undergo before getting a badge.

The cheer went something like this: "Whoooaaaa." It was a shout-out of sorts, a show of respect to mothers, fathers, teachers and shift leaders who worked with members of the 15th graduating class of the Freestate Challenge program, a military-style academy run by the Maryland National Guard for young men and women. Parents and teachers responded yesterday by jumping to their feet and giving the 92 cadets - many of them former high school dropouts - a standing ovation. All this before the cadets had even received their diplomas.

Police fanned out Friday afternoon to search for clues in the killing of teenager Michael Mayfield in Northwest Baltimore, handing out fliers with the victim's image as they moved door to door along Lyndhurst Avenue. Two days after the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old, investigators say they are still at a loss for a motive. As a homicide detective ordered 16 police cadets to hit the streets in the case, he reminded them of the gravity of the case. "The most important thing you're going to handle is a murder," said Lt. Michael Newton.

Anne Arundel County's councilmen are unanimous in their support for reviving the county's police cadet program. They voted 7-0 on Monday to support a resolution urging the police to reinstate the program, which was discontinued about a decade ago during budget cuts. The cadet program would hire young people as part-time employees to assist with some police duties while learning about law enforcement. They would not have the power to make arrests or issue tickets, but they could help at public events and staffing police stations.

The number of sexual assaults reported at the Naval Academy increased slightly last year while reports fell at the other service academies, according to an assessment to be released by the Pentagon on Friday. Overall reports at the three academies fell from 80 during the 2011-2012 academic year to 70 in 2012-2013, according to the Annual Report on Sexual Harassment and Violence at the Military Service Academies obtained by The Baltimore Sun. That drop runs counter to the recent militarywide trend of increased reporting - a trend that officials have said indicates a growing trust in the military justice system.

It's a fitful dream, one that has haunted Dick Nowak for 50 years. In it, Army's football team has the ball on Navy's 2-yard line. Trailing by six points, Nowak and the Cadets line up to run a final play as precious seconds tick away. And then? Time runs out - and Nowak wakes up. “The ending is always the same,” he said resignedly. “We never get the play off.” The dream is all too real. In 1963, that's how Army lost to Navy, 21-15, in a game deeply etched in the lore of their 144-year rivalry.
