Even after dusk had settled over Mayo's Camp Letts soccer field yesterday, the question of which Christian school soccer team was the county's best still was unsettled.Annapolis Area Christian School and Glen Burnie's Granite Baptist School had heard about each other throughout the season. So naturally, curiosity got the best of both teams -- so much so, that AACS coach Bob Topp and Granite mentor Jack Wilson decided to schedule a season finale between the two small schools."I started the idea (of putting the game together)

What started for Robert McCollum as a two-year leave of absence from a teaching job in Chicago has expanded into a five-year stint guiding 300 students in a Christian school in Bogota, Colombia. That enrollment was about a tenth of what McCollum was accustomed to in Chicago, but that wasn't the biggest difference. McCollum, 44, said the work "really helped me to frame my own thinking about what Christian education should look like. " After serving as secondary principal and director of academics at El Camino Academy in Bogota, McCollum has returned to the U.S. to serve as the upper school principal for Annapolis Area Christian School.

An Odenton Christian School pastor could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison after an Anne Arundel County judge convicted him yesterday on charges that he beat an 8-year-old pupil with a board. The Rev. Timothy L. Yetter, 42, of the 8000 block of Piney Orchard Parkway pleaded not guilty by statement of facts to one count of second-degree assault. The unusual plea allows Yetter to preserve certain appeal rights. After listening to the prosecutor recite a summary of the case, Circuit Judge Joseph P. Manck convicted Yetter on the charge.

. Cody Young is an evangelical Christian who attends a religious high school in Southern California. With stellar grades, competitive test scores and an impressive list of extracurricular activities, Young has mapped a future that includes studying engineering at the University of California and a career in the aerospace industry, his lawyers have said. But Young, his teachers and his family fear his beliefs may hurt his chance to attend the university. They say the public university system, which has 10 campuses, discriminates against students from evangelical Christian schools, especially faith-based ones like Calvary Chapel Christian School in Murrieta, where Young is a senior.

Michael Bell still remembers the thrill he felt when, as a 5-year-old, he earned the top children's prize at a Havre de Grace art show. Those feelings came rushing back last night as the Southern High School arts teacher was named Anne Arundel County's Public Schools Teacher of the Year. He and Julie Z. Coleman, a fifth-grade teacher who won the private schools award, were cheered wildly by colleagues at an Academy Awards-like dinner ceremony. "You work so hard over the years, it's not something you expect to be recognized for," Bell said after the dinner at the Marriott Hotel near Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

THE BIBLE offers no advice on how to teach reading.But at area Christian schools, phonics reigns supreme.You can hear it in the sing-song reading exercises at Redeemer Classical Christian School in northeastern Baltimore County. You can see it in the carefully crafted reading curriculum at Baltimore Christian School.God is, of course, everywhere to be seen and heard at a Christian school -- on the chalkboards and bulletin boards, in daily prayers and weekly chapel services, in science and history classes where students learn that it all began, this wonderful world we live in, with the Creation in 4046 B.C.Reading instruction, however, is surprisingly secular.

The pastor of Odenton Baptist Church has been charged with child abuse and assault in the punishment of an 8-year-old pupil at its school nearly three weeks ago. The Rev. Timothy L. Yetter, 42, was served with a criminal summons yesterday - the second time that an administrator at Odenton Christian School has been accused of abuse. The case also puts the private school's corporal approach to discipline under public scrutiny. It occurs as the school deals with other legal problems - a lawsuit filed by a former teacher alleging discriminatory employment practices, and a threat of closure by the county for alleged violations of fire and safety codes, including overcrowding in classrooms and unsanitary conditions.

Before Saturday afternoon's game against Lutheran, Annapolis Area Christian School's Ryan Slenk had attempted just one field goal all season, and that was blocked. The senior admitted to a few nerves when he stepped up for the potential game-winning field goal against the host Saints. Lutheran had a two-point lead with two seconds left and the Eagles clinging to a 15-game winning streak. Slenk, who said he had never kicked a field goal with so much on the line, blocked out the pressure and booted his 21-yarder through the uprights to give the Eagles a 22-21 victory and extend their winning streak to 16 — the longest active streak in the Baltimore metro area.

In a game the Eagles trailed 21-7 going into the fourth quarter, Paige threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to James Anderson for a 22-21 lead. He then intercepted a pass and returned it 26 yards for another touchdown to seal the win. Paige also had four tackles. A transfer from Springbrook, Paige plans to play baseball for the Eagles after sitting out last spring following shoulder surgery.

That completed Gilman's come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the Gaels in the A Conference championship.

When Stanford-trained physicist Ken Kihlstrom took a job teaching at Westmont College, an evangelical Christian school near Santa Barbara, Calif., some of his counterparts at top research universities were baffled. Their attitude seemed to be, "Are you basically a backwoods fundamentalist right out of the Scopes monkey trial?" he said. Two decades later, Kihlstrom is sending some of his top students to elite universities' graduate schools. And he gets fewer questions from skeptics about whether Westmont embraces modern science.
