The last play Stephen Banick made ended with the freshman attackman writhing on the turf at Sea Gull Stadium in the fourth quarter of Stevenson's eventual 7-2 loss to Salisbury in an NCAA tournament semifinal on May 20. Banick, who led the Mustangs in goals (36) and points (63), crumpled to the turf with 12:31 left in regulation after planting his left leg behind the cage and had to be carried off the field with the lower portion of that leg immobilized in a cast. As traumatic as that scene was, coach Paul Cantabene said Banick could return to the field as early as this fall.

While lilies nod and peonies billow, sedums seem to hunker down in the garden, squat and solid.

When the legislature convened in January, it seemed all but certain that it would seek to address two terrible deaths caused in some part by failures of our systems to keep Marylanders safe. In October, Miriam Frankl, 20, a Johns Hopkins University undergraduate, was killed as she stepped off the curb in Charles Village by a truck careening up the street on what witnesses said was a reckless ride through the city. Thomas Meighan Jr., a Carroll County man who had been repeatedly convicted of drunken-driving offenses but was still the registered owner of the truck that struck Ms. Frankl, has been charged in her death.
