Maryvale, fairly new to the sport of indoor track, pulled a big upset at CCBC-Essex yesterday when it knocked off a bunch of well-established programs in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland. Maryvale captured three of a dozen events while garnering 78 points to 52 for runner-up Mercy. Just 11 points separated the next five finishers. In the accompanying Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association meet, Mount St. Joseph won seven of 12 events, two each by Chris Wright and Nick Wright, to beat Calvert Hall, 152-102.

Mount St. Joseph's cross country team appeared to have an overwhelming 1-2 combination returning in senior Chris Wright and junior Ron Kirchner. Then came the news that Kirchner would transfer to a school in Pennsylvania rather than face the 90-minute daily commute from his parents' new home. In the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association last season, Kirchner lost only to Wright, the two-time Baltimore-City/County Runner of the Year, and to Spalding senior Dusty Lieb, the All-Metro Runner of the Year.

Mount de Sales, which started the indoor season slowly, finishing fourth in the first Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland meet seven weeks ago, sprang a surprise yesterday, topping favored Maryvale at the CCBC-Essex track. Getting yeoman performances from Megan Adams, Lana Deptula and Jamie Raver, who combined for 57 points exclusive of relay assignments, the Sailors cruised by Maryvale, 87-75, by scoring big in the speed events and jumps. Three weeks ago, Maryvale had outscored Mount de Sales by more than 30 points and, in December had thumped runner-up Mercy by 26 points.

Track and field teams around Baltimore City are lining up for the start of the outdoor season, but the front-runners appear to be the same as last season: Mervo and Mount St. Joseph. Mervo has won the city title nine of the past 10 seasons. With most of the team returning, 2001 should provide for another winning season. The Mustangs should be particularly strong in the sprint events. The boys will be deep and possess the ability to score points in any event. Senior Tavon Stewart and junior Jabari Bush will lead the sprinters, while seniors Salis Berry and Orlando Walker will handle the middle-distance events.

One thing about relay events, such as the 33 High School Relays conducted at Towson University last night: You're never really sure what you're looking at.For example, with about 50 yards to go in a heat of the girls' mile run, it appeared to be anybody's race between Katie Riesenfeld of Franklin, Ryann Holmes of Largo and Susan Hendrick of Patuxent.Just a couple of feet separated them at the finish line, Holmes prevailing in 5 minutes, 57.8 seconds. Not a great time, but a great race.But wait!

Veteran track coach Ed Harte says that his North County Outdoor Track Invitational on Tuesday in Ferndale will be "the best field we have ever had." It will also continue his personal crusade to see such events finish in a reasonable amount of time. Harte has lined up 16 schools in the boys and girls competition, including the metro area's No. 1 boys team, Oakland Mills and blue-chipper Kyle Farmer, and other ranked teams. More importantly, Harte promises the event will finish in three hours.

Boys Co-top performers Chris Wright, Mount St. Joseph, junior, and Nick Wright, Mount St. Joseph, senior: For these two Gaels standouts, the record speaks for itself. Chris Wright won MIAA championships in the mile (4:36.6) and 2 mile (MIAA record 9:54.3). He also placed second in the 3000 at the Pangea Invitational (9:06.2). At 1600 meters, he took second at the Dickinson Invitational (4:43), and also spent much of the season running, and scoring in, the 800, and running a leg on St. Joe's 3200 relay team, which took fifth at Dickinson and ninth at Princeton.

After an afternoon of track and field yesterday at CCBS-Essex, perennial power Mount St. Joseph again needs to make room in its trophy case. Upstart Mount de Sales probably needs to build one. The two Catonsville-area schools may have very different histories in the sport, but today both have at least one thing in common - a championship. Mount St. Joseph won five events, including two each by hurdler-jumper Nick Wright and distance runner Chris Wright (no relation) in taking the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association meet for boys for the fifth straight year, while Mount de Sales finished among the top four in nine of 12 events in capturing its first ever indoor track crown at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland meet for girls.
