One of the top cross country runners in Howard County a year ago, Mount Hebron's Zach Weinstein got a major scare over the summer when a stress fracture in his left leg threatened to keep him on the sideline. After taking several weeks off, however, the senior is back on the course, hoping to build toward another successful postseason. A year ago, he finished eighth in the county and fourth in the Class 2A South regional before taking eighth at the Class 2A state meet. Weinstein talked about the injury, the challenge of coming back and his plans for the future in a recent interview.

The Orioles packed their bags and headed to Detroit late Friday afternoon, but it was clear that they were in no hurry to leave the orange embrace of the fans in Baltimore or the surreal environment that enveloped Camden Yards during the first two games of their American League Division Series. "I've been in World Series … I've been in the World Baseball Classic … I've been in the All-Star Game, and I never heard nothing like this," said Game 1 hero Nelson Cruz. "It was so loud, my ears were ringing.

Once again, Loyola College fought gamely against a superior opponent, this time coming back from 22 points down in the second half to make it close.... TC But, once again, the result was the same, as Loyola lost to Fordham, 73-70, last night in a non-conference game before 1,073 at Reitz Arena.With three seconds left, Loyola -- which had its best three-point shooting night of the season, 8-for-20 -- could have tied it on a three-point attempt from 24 feet by Mike Malone.The shot bounded off the rim and a scramble for the ball ensued as the final seconds ticked off.It was the eighth straight loss for Loyola, which is 2-21.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- When their NCAA West Regional semifinal game was over and their season had ended Thursday night with a disappointing 99-89 defeat to Connecticut at the Oakland Coliseum, they did not reflect too long on what had happened.There were no last-second plays to dissect, no coaching moves to second-guess. The Maryland Terrapins knew they had not played well, that the Huskies had sliced them up pretty good. And the Terps also knew something else, though no one was going to admit it.They would have to start pointing to next season and the likelihood of life after Joe Smith.

Ward and June. Ozzie and Harriet. Jim and Margaret Anderson. If you recognize those couples - and if you grew up wishing they were your parents - you likely hearken to a time when the American family was made up of a breadwinning father and a homemaking mother and a couple of kids. We like to think of the 1950s and the early 1960s as the golden age of family life, but it was also a repressive time for women. Only a handful had college degrees, only about 30 percent ventured outside the home to work, and women had little control over the timing and number of the children they bore.

Manny Machado admits that he feared the worst when he fell to the ground at home plate Monday night, holding his right knee and writhing in pain in the batter's box. The moment brought back memories for Machado of last September, when his other knee buckled as he hit first base, ending his year with an injury that required offseason surgery and forced him to miss the first month this season. And even though the Orioles placed their third baseman on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, the team's diagnosis of a knee ligament sprain was met with relief.

But his dog bolted into a patch of woods while playing catch with a dogsitter in Crownsville last week and a non-stop effort to find her has proven fruitless, leaving them suspicious that there might be more to this than meets the eye. “Jon is devastated,” says his friend Heather Cappelli, who's spearheading the effort to find Zara.

While visiting our home state of Maryland in June, my husband and I were headed across the plaza near the USS Constellation in the Inner Harbor and had just checked the water taxi schedule. In a split second, I was on the ground with extreme pain radiating from my left foot and my right shoulder. One of the Inner Harbor "ambassadors" arrived to see what the issue was. At this point, I was unable to speak and my still stunned husband told him that I had fallen. As the ambassador began writing up the incident report he said, "People fall here all the time.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees won't know for sure until his players strap on the pads and can start making tackles, but if the way his young defense is getting to the ball in organized team activities is any indication, the Ravens might be nearing a return to their fast, ball-swarming defense of old. "I think [the team speed] has improved a lot," Pees said. "It looks like it out here in OTAs, but again, we've got to see it when all the pads are on. … But I really do believe that we've gotten faster.

The Ravens now know they don't need to draft a starting offensive tackle this weekend. Jonathan Ogden told The Sun last night that he plans to return to the Ravens for his 12th season. Ogden, the 10-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, had been contemplating retirement since the Ravens' playoff loss to Indianapolis. Although team officials always remained optimistic about Ogden coming back, he made it official two days before the NFL draft, boosting the Ravens' chances of repeating as AFC North champions and returning to the playoffs.

At a time in American life when we are seeing reports of veterans dying while waiting months and even years for basic care at Veterans Affairs hospitals, this documentary about soldiers returning to civilian life after combat in Iraq and Afghanistan is timely and deeply touching. The best-selling Baltimore author, who served as a combat officer in Afghanistan, sets out to chronicle the stories of veterans who have survived the battlefield, in some cases only to face even deadlier challenges at home.
