When Brad Wilson was asked about the three opponents awaiting his North County boys basketball team this week, he leaned back in his chair and laughed.Other coaches under similar circumstances might have cried. Or jumped out the nearest window."We'll approach it like any other week," Wilson said in his office after Friday morning's practice. The Knights are 0-7, with games against Meade tomorrow, Annapolis Wednesday and Severna Park Friday -- three teams with a combined 13-3 record.The Meade game originallywas slated for Dec. 6, but a postponement and subsequent rescheduling left North County with its own version of hell week.

Fallston made the biggest dent in the Harford County high school boys lacrosse scene this season, as it went 14-2, and outscored the opposition by an average of 19-5 in reaching the state Class 1A-2A championship game.Two of the principal reasons for the team's success have been singled out for honors by The Baltimore Sun: John Conley has been named the Harford County boys lacrosse Coach of the Year, and midfielder Dan Bowers the Harford County boys lacrosse Player of the Year.Even before the season began, Conley, starting his third season as head coach, was optimistic because of the wealth of talent he had returning from a team that went to the state 1A-2A semifinals a year ago.The Cougars did not disappoint, running off 14 straight wins after a season-opening loss to St. Paul's.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Stephen G. Samuel Moxley and Vincent Gardina all have something in common - double-dipping ("Halfway ethical," Dec. 28). Mr. Gardina, who held five consecutive terms on the Baltimore County Council is now head of the Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability. That's a position Mr. Kamenetz created just for him, a payback if you will. Mr. Gardina was owed a favor as he donated nearly $160,000 to Mr. Kamenetz's campaign.

Ever since I did a story on Riley Davis' bone marrow transplant in September 2009, I looked forward to finally meeting him in person. I wanted to be there when he went back to Jacksonville Elementary School. He was in the middle of fourth grade when he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2008. But his health didn't allow him to go back. So then I waited to see when he would start Hereford Middle School. I already envisioned our photographer getting a photo of Riley, known as “Sunny D,” sitting in the cafeteria and surrounded by his friends.

There will be those who think Eric Schuler's victory over Robby Creese in Tuesday's Howard County boys cross country championship race was an upset. But don't put Schuler in that group. The Reservoir senior made his move past the midway mark on the Centennial course and pulled away. Schuler went on to score a surprisingly easy victory over River Hill's Scott  Heydrick and Creese, who hadn't lost in-county since last fall. Creese won the county, regional and state titles last fall and every race this year until taking 10 t h at the recent Georgetown Prep meet.

Arundel girls basketball coach Lee Rogers said winning county championship games "are nice, but getting to the state tournament is better and what we are focused on." That's coming from the county's most successful girls coach since the county finals for boys and girls - pitting the top two finishers from the regular season - commenced in the 1995-96 season. No. 6 Arundel claimed its fourth consecutive county title and its ninth in 11 years with last week's 62-53 win over No. 13 Old Mill.
