Whenever Michael W. Fedder started something -- a sport, playing an instrument, community service -- he would go as far as he could with it. "He never did not finish anything he started," Shelly Fedder said of her son. "Whatever he got involved in, he stuck with it. He had that kind of dedication -- whatever he did, he thought about it and he got into it to stay." This stick-to-itiveness led to Fedder being named the 1998-1999 Teen-ager of the Year for Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington by the Capital District of Kiwanis International Inc. The award was announced in August, just after the 18-year-old had left for college in Florida.

Despite many changes, things remained more or less the same for the Skipjacks last night. They didn't win, but neither did they lose.Baltimore began the game with a new head coach, with two new players and without three players who recently had been sent to other teams. And during the game, they signed an Olympian. However, the changes failed to produce a victory.Before 4,119 at the Baltimore Arena, the Skipjacks rallied in the third period to tie the Capital District Islanders, 2-2.John Byce, acquired in a trade with the Boston Bruins on Monday, tied the game at 2 with a power-play goal at 16:56 of the third period and forced a scoreless five-minute sudden-death overtime.
