Howard held off defending champion Centennial at the 35th annual Howard County Championship meet, April 22 at the Howard Community College pool. Because swimming is not a sport that is sanctioned by the county's high school athletic program, the event is sponsored by the Columbia Clippers club team. Each school had a captain that recruited his or her classmates to form a team. Although Howard County public school swimmers get only one chance a year to represent their high school in the pool, many local swimmers will be continuing in college next year.

Danny Kim is a senior captain and three-year varsity starter for a 9-2 Catonsville boys soccer team battling for a spot in the Baltimore County championship game. The Comets have won eight games in a row since a loss to Dulaney on Sept. 13, their only loss to a Baltimore County opponent. The 5-foot-8 midfielder leads the team in scoring with seven goals and one assist after scoring eight goals in his junior year. How old were you when you started playing soccer? I was around 4 years old when I started playing.

The Milford Mill boys track and field team needed the last event of the day in the Baltimore County track championship on Saturday to secure its first title since 1999. Milford Mill trailed Hereford, the two-time county champion, by five points heading into the 1,600 meter relay. Senior Maurice Hawkins outkicked Pikesville's Maury Sall in the final 30 meters to finish third and give Milford Mill just enough overall points to capture the title, 69-68. "I'm shocked," said Milford Mill coach Sharon Johnson, noting she only brought 10 boys to the meet.

Acker had a dream season for the No. 6 Raiders, who finished the season 18-2 and 17-0 in Howard County in the regular season. The senior batted .541 in 61 at-bats, contributing 33 hits, 10 doubles, four home runs, two triples and nine stolen bases. He scored 36 runs, struck out only three times and was named Howard County Player of the Year by county coaches. "Brady was a leader on our team, both vocally and by example," Atholton coach Jon Dupski said. "The other players respond to him and the example he sets.

The big snow has forced Anne Arundel County officials to move their basketball championships to next Friday, Feb. 21 instead of Wednesday, because some postponed games have backed up into the middle of next week. The Anne Arundel championships were scheduled earlier than any other local jusrisdiction, so everyone else has more time to reschedule regular-season contests. Title games in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and the Harford-Cecil Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference remain unchanged. Carroll and Howard do not have county championship games, with the regular-season winners taking those titles.

A Meade-Annapolis boys basketball rematch will determine the Anne Arundel County championship at Broadneck at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.But today's blind draw at High Point High in Beltsville for the region playoffs could spoil the party.No. 10 Meade (15-5) knocked off No. 11 Annapolis (16-4) on Feb. 9, 80-70. Unfortunately, it's possible for the two teams to draw each other for the first round of the regional and be forced to play again on Friday.That's the main reason most Anne Arundel coaches would rather scrap the county championship game, as long as it is so close to the playoffs.

When Westminster defeated Urbana nearly three weeks ago, there was no indication that would be the start of something big for the Owls. After all, that win had snapped a six-game losing streak, three of them by one-goal margins.Since then, however, Westminster has won four in a row, and its latest triumph, a 2-1 victory last night at North Carroll (7-5-1, 1-2-1), almost brought it level at 5-6, but more importantly earned it the county championship with a 4-0 record. A loss would have given Liberty a fifth successive title at 4-1.While North Carroll was doing everything but taking advantage of its opportunities, an "opportunistic" (in coach Mick Ferraro's opinion)

Who can tell me what's more fun than having the opportunity to beat a backyard rival? That's basically what these county championship games and matches come down to. It's a big deal, but it is only part of the benefit that comes from them. There are coaches, even coaches who have won county championship games, who don't like them. Why? They say it can wipe out an entire season of work, the way it did River Hill's 13-0 golf record a couple of weeks ago. Or in a sport like baseball, it can be less than a classic matchup because one team might hold back its No. 1 pitcher because of a coming regional playoff game.

South River earned its first-ever trip to the Anne Arundel County boys soccer championship on an "own goal" with 12 seconds left in the first overtime for a 2-1 victory over Old Mill in Edgewater last night. Lucky for the Seahawks (12-1-1 overall), who won the county regular season at 10-1 while Old Mill (9-4-1) finished 8-3, the eighth county championship game was already set up for 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at South River. The Hawks' opponent will be Chesapeake. who were scheduled to play at Glen Burnie tonight, but late last night the Gophers forfeited due to a rules violation.

High school county championship games for many of the fall sports are upon us, and while they might bring extra excitement and another good game to watch, I have come across some situations over the years that provide an argument as to why they should not be played. One example that stands out came in 2006 when Howard County first introduced championship games and Centennial and Glenelg reached the inaugural field hockey title game. Centennial came into the game with a perfect record and had already beaten Glenelg during the season.

Severna Park forward Daniel Kwon has established himself as one of the premier strikers in the area with his ability to make effective runs off the ball and his deft finishing. Kwon continued his magic Tuesday night against No. 11 Broadneck, scoring three goals to lead the No. 5 Falcons to a 3-2 victory in the Anne Arundel County boys soccer championship. Severna Park, which trailed twice in the game, improved to 12-0-2 and is playing some of its best soccer of the season heading into the Class 4A state playoffs.

The Arundel girls soccer team's priority in Tuesday's Anne Arundel County championship game against rival Broadneck was a fast start. The No. 3 Wildcats also spent extra time in practice defending corner kicks and long throws, which have been reliable sources of offense for the No. 2 Bruins throughout the season. It all paid off. With senior All-Metro forward Clarissa Kirsch-Downs providing the offense with a ninth-minute goal and the defense holding firm the rest of the way, Arundel earned a 1-0 win to capture the program's second county championship.

With the ball in his stick in overtime of Monday's Anne Arundel County boys lacrosse championship, Arundel junior midfielder Aaron Snyder kept the plan simple. The result was much more than that. Snyder scored 50 seconds into extra play to give the No. 10 Wildcats a 7-6 win over No. 8 South River at Northeast High to capture the program's second county championship - its first since 1999. South River came into the game as the defending county, region and Class 4A-3A state champions, with a 10-6 win over the Wildcats already in the books from the regular season.

On Senior Day, with the county championship on the line, Glenelg's Leah Allen delivered a performance befitting the reigning Howard County Player of the Year. The senior shortstop hit two home runs and made nine putouts in the field, leading the way to a 6-4 victory over No. 5 Atholton that gave the No. 2 Gladiators sole possession of the county title. "As a team we all knew we had to step up today, and being my last regular season home game, there was definitely a little extra motivation," Allen said.

There are plenty of teams in a number of sports that simply dominate the county year after year.The South Carroll boys lacrosse team recently won its 10th straight county championship. The Liberty girls made it seven straight this spring.Westminster field hockey co-coaches Sue Hooper and Brenda Baker have trouble keeping count of their team's string of county titles, and the Westminster boys cross country team has a pretty good run going with 12 straight county titles.But none can match the Westminster boys track and field team, which goes after its 15th straight county championship tomorrow afternoon at Western Maryland College.

Top-ranked Arundel erupted for six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and went on to win its third Anne Arundel County championship game, but 16th overall, by 12-3 over No. 7 Northeast at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans last night. Nick Pleyo had three hits and three RBIs for the Wildcats (19-2) while Joey Frykman had a bases-clearing double in the crucial fifth inning to spoil the first appearance by Northeast (15-6) in the county final. Junior right-hander Jason Lively (7-0) scattered nine hits, struck out four and walked one in going the distance on 104 pitches.

It took No. 9 Arundel nearly four quarters Wednesday night to establish what looked to be a secure lead in the final moments of the Anne Arundel County boys basketball championship game against Annapolis. It took Panthers junior Juan Brown one flick of the wrist to swipe it right back. Brown's steal, length-of-the-court drive and layup as time expired capped a stunning 8-0 run to give the Panthers a 51-49 win against the regular-season county champions at Chesapeake. Tied at 49, the Wildcats inbounded the ball with 12 seconds left, looking to finish off a game they had led by six with under two minutes to play.
