A band of seven children is taking over the world. Youths from Clemens Crossing Elementary School in Columbia are attacking continents, oceans, asteroid caves - even a space station. Although it sounds as if they are playing a computer game, their task is far more complex. They recently performed a game of their design at the Maryland Destination ImagiNation Festival of Creativity. Destination ImagiNation (DI), an international competition, promotes creative problem solving. The nonprofit group creates five new "challenges" each September.

Uh-oh, don't look now, girls, but there's a new kid on the block. C. Milton Wright, its indoor track program measured in weeks, not in years or decades, busted onto the scene at the girls portion of the 4A-3A Central Region meet at the 5th Regiment Armory last night by beating the best the city and Anne Arundel and Carroll Counties had to offer. Its margin of victory? A 76-75.5 win over Westminster, with perennial city champ Western third (64.75) and Broadneck fourth (55.75.) "Vagabonds, that's what we are, coming in here and stealing off with a victory," CMW co-coach Murray Davis said.

Linganore's Joe Seetoo was honored as the 1994 Scholar-Athlete of the Year last night at Martin's West, and no one had to ask why.Especially anybody around Carroll County who watched Seetoo run for seemingly endless yards in his spectacular Central Maryland Conference football career.The lasting memory of Seetoo this past season came after a tough victory over South Carroll, during which the talented running back broke loose in the second half for some long runs that carried Frederick County's Linganore to a 14-10 victory.
