Walt Williams isn't one to shy away from a challenge. The former NBA veteran, after all, is perhaps best known for playing under the most trying circumstances in the history of Maryland basketball. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the Terps were in the midst of major NCAA sanctions after the death of forward Len Bias, Williams honored his commitment to his home-state school and starred under new coach Gary Williams. It was a decision that forever endeared Walt Williams to Maryland fans, one many believe helped save the program.

There were different heroes in each of the three games Francis Scott Key won last night to avenge an earlier loss to visiting Catoctin.It made for a solid, all-around team effort that pleased coach Leo Totten, as Key (5-3) won, 15-10, 10-15, 15-10 and 15-4."The whole team played well and everyone stayed together," said Totten, whose squad lost at Catoctin in its opener in early September."The difference was our passes were much better and the teamwork was there tonight. Everyone stayed up, whether they were on the court or on the bench."

The effort was there for the Francis Scott Key Eagles. The goals were not.The Eagles spent the better part of the second half against visiting Catoctin pressing the issue yesterday afternoon, only to come up on the short end of a 3-1 decision.The Eagles (3-7-1) looked like an entirely different team in the second half after starting slow and trailing 1-0 to the Cougars (6-5-1) at intermission.When Kelly Jirout took a short feed from Lisa Turner seven minutes into the second half and went high with a shot from 15 yards to beat Catoctin goalie Dana Bollinger, it appeared the Eagles were on their way."

Farmers may be leery of anyone from the federal government promising help, but here's one offer that sounds too good to refuse. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service announced this week that it is making up to $315,000 available to "farmers, ranchers and forest landowners" in the Catoctin Creek watershed in western Frederick County. The offer is part of a new water quality initiative by the NRCS directing technical and financial help to 157 watersheds nationwide.

A historic aqueduct in Western Maryland has been restored nearly four decades after two of its three arches collapsed, leaving the now-139-year-old structure in ruins. State and federal lawmakers held a ceremony Saturday near Point of Rocks, about 15 miles southeast of Frederick along the Maryland-Virginia border, to celebrate the reopening of the Catoctin Aqueduct, one of 11 aqueducts along the 184.5 miles of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. "It just couldn't have been a more perfect day," said George E. Lewis Jr., a veterinarian who is president of the Catoctin Aqueduct Restoration Fund Inc., by phone Saturday.

It was a family reunion of sorts. I was in College Park on Saturday with my wife and our older daughter and a couple of family friends to watch the Howard High softball team tangle with Calvert County’s Northern High School for the  3A state championship.  My father, who was the home plate umpire during the 1A matchup between Loch Raven and Catoctin later that day, arrived early, and our brother-in-law and nephew showed up unexpectedly. All attended the game knowing it was very unlikely that Howard reserve outfielder Julia Miller would see any action.

— The Loch Raven Raiders had a dream season — in Baltimore County competition. Saturday at the University of Maryland, they found out just how good the rest of the state can be. The Raiders could only manage three singles off Catoctin freshman starter Rhianna Drieu in the Class 1Astate final, falling to the Cougars, 10-0, in a game called in the bottom of the sixth because of the 10-run rule. The state championship was the sixth for Frederick County's Catoctin (19-3). By contrast, it was Loch Raven's first visit to the state tournament in 22 years.

Southside's Sheree Ledbetter understood exactly how the Catoctin players felt after they avenged last year's state semifinal loss to the Jaguars with a 61-45 victory in last night's state Class 1A girls basketball championship at UMBC's RAC Arena. "I know the feeling to want to get somebody back, because it felt good to get revenge on New Town, so I know they're feeling good right now," said Ledbetter, who led Southside last night with 12 points and 14 rebounds. The No. 10 Jaguars, who have been to the state final three straight years, beat New Town Friday, but could not follow it up with another victory.

Catoctin already had scored three touchdowns and taken an 18-point lead by the time Joppatowne ran its first play. It was just the beginning of a long day for No. 5 Joppatowne in Saturday's Class 1A state championship game. The Mariners repeatedly stopped themselves with mistakes, and Catoctin pulled away for a 37-12 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. Joppatowne (13-1) moved the ball easily but couldn't make the big plays that Catoctin (14-0) did. The Mariners got inside the Cougars' 20-yard line five times but converted those drives into only six points.
