An attorney advising the University of Maryland recommended against seeking prosecution or reporting a swim coach who had allegedly abused a teenager at a private club, university officials said Wednesday. Documents released Wednesday by the school shed light on its response nearly 25 years ago to accusations involving Rick Curl, who was the head swim coach at the time. Immediately after the abuse was revealed, the university demanded Curl's resignation, but for decades he continued coaching thousands of swimmers — and Olympic competitors — at the club he founded outside Washington.

Sundays in the fall, Leigh Ann Curl has the best seat in the house. From the sidelines, she watches linebacker Ray Lewis blow up ball carriers and tight end Todd Heap run over defenders. But football being what it is - a contest whose essence is violent collision - pleasure gives way to business. Consider the Baltimore Ravens' Oct. 26 home game against the Denver Broncos. On the first play, linebacker Bart Scott hurts a knee and limps to the sidelines. Curl - a college basketball star who became the NFL's first female team doctor - examines Scott on the bench, finds no damage and clears him to play.

The University of Maryland says it alerted the state attorney general nearly 25 years ago that the school's head swimming coach had acknowledged sexually abusing a girl at his private club, but he was not charged until last year. Rick Curl, founder of Washington's pre-eminent Curl-Burke Swim Club, resigned his position at College Park in August 1988 after the parents of the teenage victim gave the university a letter signed by Curl that acknowledged the abuse. Curl and the parents entered into a legal settlement around that time.

Bernard on Thursday how she fell in love with Curl, who was then 33, before her 13th birthday in the early 1980s.

Kowalski looked as if he had just stepped out of a nightmare. At 6 feet 7 and 275 pounds, he was Frankenstein's monster in wrestling tights. But Kowalski was anything but stiff and plodding. Typically, he would hunch over menacingly, curl his hands into claws out in front of his chest and then pounce on his helpless prey. I believed it was all real, and I was terrified that Kowalski was going to come into the crowd and make me his next victim. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ringposts )
