When Angela DeSalvo's family moved to Severna Park in August, she felt "really uncomfortable, like I didn't fit in.""There were a lot of cliques at the school," she said, "and I felt out of place until basketball season."Now, she's getting along just fine. And her team is doing even better.With the shooting touch and strength to score from the perimeter or in the lane, DeSalvo has emerged as one of the county's most impressive underclassmen. A 5-foot-8 guard, she leads Severna Park in scoring at 13.4 points per game, averages 5.5 rebounds and is a big reason why the Falcons are a surprising 14-1 and ranked No. 11 in the metro area going into today's meeting with No. 17 Arundel.

Darryl DeSalvo threw the baseball like there was no tomorrow. Pat Boucher hit Mike Ziegler's fastballs for a two-run homer and run-scoring double. And Casey Stidham sprayed the ball around the field for three hits and two RBIs.That's how 12th-ranked Severna Park systematically dismantled No. 1 Old Mill, 5-0, in a fast-moving, well-played Anne Arundel County game played in a drizzle at Old Mill yesterday.DeSalvo, a slender senior right-hander, has seldom been better than he was yesterday as he shut out the Patriots (11-2)

All substance and very little flash.That is what Angela DeSalvo gives the Severna Park girls basketball team every time she steps on the floor."I can dribble behind my back but I prefer playing smart basketball and making good passes," said DeSalvo. "I don't see myself as a flashy player. My dad [Richard] taught me not to beat myself, use my head, don't give up and fight to the end."The 5-foot-9 senior forward can do a lot of other things to beat opponents.She can shoot from the outside with accuracy, drive to the basket for layups or dish off to an open teammate, penetrate the lane and pull up for a jumper, shoot free throws extremely well, handle the basketball against a trapping defense, move without the ball, shoot layups with both hands, and gravitate to the right place on the floor at the right time.

When it's youth vs. experience, the latter usually wins out and it did last night at No. 5 Severna Park. The senior duo of Angela DeSalvo and Jennifer Holmes led the Falcons (3-2) to a 47-40 victory over sophomore-laden No. 12 Annapolis (2-2).DeSalvo and Holmes have been there before in big games over the last three years and know how to get it done."We made sophomore mistakes against a very good team and just haven't been consistent over four periods," said Annapolis coach Dave Griffith.

Other than having the longest subtitle in recent memory, this book has one definite claim: One can no longer think that people write fiction only out of the purest motives.Did you really think that writers put pen to paper only to achieve truth, or beauty, or art? Is it transcendence they are seeking? Perhaps some have tried, and perhaps some do, but a number of authors have succumbed to the basest of human emotions when writing. They feel angry, they feel jealous, and they take it out on the appropriate party in their fiction.

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Think of the '80s as an economic rain forest. Small businesses grew lush and wild.The current financial drought has left a lot of dead wood that entrepreneurs have to prune if they hope to save their businesses. But how can they do that without killing the whole tree?Almost weekly we see how the big boys handle the task. IBM will eliminate 20,000 jobs this year. Douglas Aircraft Co. has lopped off 15,000 jobs since mid-1990.These companies are cutting more jobs than most small businesses have.

COACH OF THE YEAR* Lee Rogers, Arundel -- Often, when Rogers was asked about how his young team managed to stay unbeaten through the regular season and region playoffs, winning some close games down the stretch, he would reply: "We believe in each other." That faith, nurtured by the sixth-year coach, led Arundel to its best season. He helped bring about marked improvement from Hammond, who averaged around nine points last season, and junior forward Jen Mottar, turning both into first-team All-County selections.

The Arundel Wildcats didn't want a coin flip to determine which team would be seeded No. 1 in next week's Class 4A East Region playoffs.That honor would be achieved on the floor, they decided. Even if it took more than 32 minutes.The seventh-ranked Wildcats fought back from two 10-point deficits in the third quarter and rode another outstanding effort from junior Chavonne Hammond and some clutch shooting by a couple of freshmen to defeat No. 8 Severna Park, 58-55, in overtime.Playing before an overflow crowd at Severna Park, Hammond finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds, seven steals and three blocks, as Arundel (22-0, 14-0)
