In 13 years as the varsity softball coach at North Carroll High School, Lloyd Ford has guided the Panthers to a 202-80 record and three appearances in the state finals. It seemed only a matter of time before he would earn a major coaching award. It came earlier this month when Ford was named the 2012 Maryland State Softball Coach of the Year by the National Federation of High School Coaches Association. The NHFS Coaches Awards Program honors active coaches in the top 10 boys and girls sports, based on the number of participants.

South Carroll coach Pete Olson goes on and on about what a fine wrestler senior Charlie Conaway is from a technical standpoint."Charlie is perpetual motion, nonstop," he said. "If one counter doesn't go, he'll go right into another one and then another if he has to. The fact is, he has a repertoire of moves second to none. If you look around the state and talk about the technicians, Conaway's name is going to come up."Lofty and well-earned praise indeed, but where did Conaway get it?"I guess I just get in a flow.

Having three standout pitchers can be a trying experience at times, even if it is a blessing, in the opinion of North Carroll coach Rich Harvey."It's difficult to keep everybody in a good rhythm," he explained. "It's not the greatest thing in the world to pitch one game, then not pitch for a week. Pitchers like that consistency of getting to throw every couple days."But with three, sometimes that's not possible."Mind you, it's not that the Panthers' coach is complaining. It's just that handling a trio of top windmillers is something only a few coaches in state high school softball have had to deal with.

If there's a theme to the North Carroll girls basketball team's season, it has to be adjustment. As in the players adapting to second-year coach Sarah Palmer's man-to-man defensive strategies and half-court offensive game. And, as in Palmer growing comfortable with her squad's quiet -- almost shy -- nature. But the one thing both the coach and players can live with is a run of success that has earned the Panthers their second consecutive county championship and a share of their first Central Maryland Conference title.

North Carroll field hockey coach Denean Koontz always preferred to rely on experienced upper classmen in key roles for the Panthers. But the longtime North Carroll coach quickly realized she had something special when Mandy Pickard and Stacy Slessinger came to the school three years ago. "They're two personalities where it was a very good decision," Koontz said. "They were able to play at a higher level as younger players not only in games but during [practices]." Pickard is in her fourth season on the varsity, and Slessinger has been there for three seasons.

North Carroll athletic director Troy Warehime is interviewing candidates to be the school's fifth football coach in five years, hoping to hire someone early next month and bring the program consistency. The Panthers went 3-7 this season under Scott Currey, who won't be returning as the varsity coach. Warehime is considering applicants who work at the school first, as they can maintain daily contact with the players. Warehime wants the new hire to stay a while and end the frustrating coach-per-year cycle.

The coach of the Westminster High varsity girls basketball team resigned yesterday afternoon, 16 days after nine of his players were suspended for the rest of the season for allegedly drinking alcohol or being in the presence of underage drinking at an off-campus party. Dick Ebersole, 56, who had led the Owls for 13 seasons during two separate stints as head coach, said he resigned to keep lingering inquiries over the players' suspensions from detracting from the rest of the season. "I was trying to coach, and it had gotten to be that responding to questions surrounding those events had become a distraction to me. And I didn't want it to become a distraction to the kids currently on the team," he said in an interview last night.

For most of the summer, basketballs bouncing on worn wooden floors and swooshing through the air filled the hallways at West Middle School, just outside Westminster city limits. Sixty to 85 boys and girls showed up Monday and Wednesday nights - through last week - as part of the Union Street United Methodist Sports Ministry Clinic. The program has kept kids off the streets with lessons in the finer points of basketball and talks with local sports celebrities - including Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who is expected to be on hand for the conclusion of the program this week.
