In roller derby, a name says it all. The Hazard County Hellions, Harford County's only roller derby team, chose a name that seems wild and mischievous, a stark contrast to the responsible citizens who form the team. In this sport, theatrics are just as much a part of a match as athletics, and its players, no matter how shy or timid they seem by day, take on sassy, aggressive alter egos when they lace up their skates. Formed in 2013, the co-ed team is part of MADE (Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor)

Severna Park's Brad Bald, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound senior center and an Archbishop Spalding transfer, emerged as the Anne Arundel County public schools league's top big man this season. Averaging 17.7 points and 12.8 rebounds with 18 double doubles, Bald scored in double digits in every game this season and turned the Falcons (15-7) into a contender for the 4A East region. He and his brother, junior Brendan Bald, who is averaging 11.9 points, transferred together at the end of last year to Severna Park and had an immediate impact.

DEERFIELD, Ill. - Walgreen Co., the largest U.S. drugstore chain, said yesterday that it accidentally overcharged as many as 4 million customers buying gifts and decorations the two days before Christmas because its payment-processing system malfunctioned from overuse. Walgreen discovered the error on Christmas Day and electronically reimbursed customers whose credit or debit cards had been incorrectly double- and triple-charged, company spokesman Michael Polzin said. Some credits may not post on customers' accounts until early next week, he said.

Facing a record budget deficit, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is seeking an additional $4 million in state funding to maintain its operations. Amid rising costs and slumping attendance, the zoo built up a $3 million deficit during the fiscal year ending in June, in part because of a decline in the number of visitors and a lack of funding for maintenance and upgrades at the aging attraction in Druid Hill Park, according to zoo officials. Funding for the zoo - which is largely subsidized by the state but also through limited resources from the city and area counties - has increased by an average of 1 percent annually since 1993.

The number of women having both breasts removed after a tumor is found in one increased 150 percent during a five-year period despite a lack of evidence that double mastectomies increase survival in most women, researchers reported yesterday. Guidelines for treatment of a localized breast cancer call for removal of the tumor and not for a mastectomy, let alone a double mastectomy. But an increasing number of women, particularly young, white women, are pushing for the more aggressive procedure for reasons that are not totally clear, the researchers said.

TORONTO - Someone asked Larry Hughes recently if he had figured out whether he was a point guard or a shooting guard, and the Washington Wizards veteran looked at the questioner quizzically, as if to say, "Silly rabbit, labels are for kids." "I want to make things happen, and I don't want to label myself in one position," Hughes said. "When you put me out there in any situation, I'm going to make the best out of it and I'm going to get the best out of the situation. To be able to make plays and score the basketball, you can't categorize that in one position."

It seems like Delmon Young has been in the major leagues for more than nine years. Maybe that's because he came to the majors so young, or maybe because he's in the postseason every year. His bat has always earned him a job. Throughout years ragged by injuries, off-the-field issues and even weight clauses in his contract, hitting has always been the easy part. After his three-run, pinch-hit double Friday afternoon led the Orioles to a 7-6 comeback win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of the American League Division Series, Young was asked whether he had ice in his veins.

The TV audience for Tuesday night's division-clinching victory was almost twice as large as normal for an Orioles game on MASN this season, according to figures provided by the channel. O's games averaged a 5.9 household rating this season, which means 5.9 percent of cable TV homes in the Baltimore market watched the games throughout the season. But Tuesday night the percentage of cable TV homes in the Baltimore market tuned to the game was 11.6 percent. That translates to 127,000 homes and 179,000 viewers.

SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs had developed a nasty habit of letting teams linger around in playoff series, and it looked last night as though they would let the New Jersey Nets force a seventh game in the NBA Finals. However, power forward Tim Duncan and center David Robinson decided they had had enough, putting the Spurs on their backs one last time to power a withering 19-0 fourth-quarter run that won Game 6 of the series, 88-77, and the NBA championship as well. Not only did Duncan notch his 14th straight double double - marking the 22nd time in 24 playoff games this season that he had posted double figures in two categories - but his finishing line, 21 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists and eight blocked shots, made for one of the greatest individual performances in championship series history.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Orioles interim manager Sam Perlozzo received a phone call yesterday from one of his friends, Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells, who discussed all the concerns he holds about his football team after this week's season-opening victory. Perlozzo listened as Parcells highlighted a few positions that might need upgrading if the Cowboys are going to reach the playoffs. Finally, it was his turn. Though Perlozzo could have rambled for hours, given all the issues he inherited after Lee Mazzilli's firing last month, he stuck to one subject.

In front of a packed house and a national television audience, Sunday evening at Camden Yards was supposed to belong to Derek Jeter and Francis Scott Key, perhaps in that order. But infielder Kelly Johnson, an Oriole for roughly two weeks, ignited his own impromptu celebration in the bottom of the ninth inning with a walk-off double to give the Orioles a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees. The victory reduced the Orioles' magic number for winning the American League East division to three.
