If running back Da'Rel Scott seems a little quicker than a year ago, there might be a few reasons. The first is that Scott -- after suffering shoulder and wrist injuries earlier in his career -- says he is healthy. The second is that he said his muscles have been honed by competing this past season in indoor track. Scott ran 60-meter sprints, recording a time of 6.87 seconds. Maryland said he ran the fastest time -- 4.33 seconds -- among running backs in the 40-yard dash during spring football workouts.

Players on the McDonogh field hockey team say they never openly talked about last year's overtime loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference final. In Thursday's rematch, however, the Eagles left little doubt that it was on the top of their minds. Led by a goal and assist by junior Brindi Griffin, No. 2 McDonogh stormed out of the gate to build a three-goal lead early in the second half, then held off a furious comeback attempt by top-ranked Spalding to preserve a 3-2 win, ending the Cavaliers' 17-game winning streak.

Each year, Maryland hangs photos of its seniors in the men's basketball offices at Comcast Center. So it was that framed action shots of Dino Gregory, Cliff Tucker and Adrian Bowie went up before the season began. After that, not everything went according to plan. The senior trio — which will be honored today before its final home game, against Virginia — presided over a team that, with six newcomers, has failed to approach the standards set by its recent predecessors. If college is about learning lessons, the one imparted on Gregory, Tucker and Bowie is that life — and basketball specifically — doesn't always go as planned.

That's one small two-step for SC&P, and one giant leap for Don's humility. So, who was expecting that? Not the death. I was suspecting someone would be killed off with Ted's death wish and the looming Mets pennant. And not Roger swooping in to save Don and the agency. We've been rooting for an underdog all season - we just didn't know it was Roger. And not Sally's amped up cynicism and sass, either. That's just business as usual. I mean Bert's dance from beyond the grave. Say what you will about the episode's ending - bizarre and out of place, or comical and uplifting (Twitter seemed pretty evenly divided)

COLLEGE PARK - There was the torn labrum, the chipped bone, the groin injury, the problematic rotator cuff. Each has taken a toll on Maryland outside linebacker Matt Robinson , testing his body and his will. Seasons come and go for Robinson, but injuries often linger. When spring comes, he often is still healing from the year before. But this season, the savvy rising senior is healthy. As much as any Maryland player, Robinson was eager to greet the arrival of spring practice Saturday.

When Claude Darr informed his players at the end of last season that he would coach football only one more year at Franklin, the underclassmen pledged to make his 25th and final season a memorable one.So far, the Indians haven't let him down.Five weeks into the season, Franklin is 5-0 and its hopes for a playoff berth and an undefeated record are still alive."Coach Darr is our sergeant and we're his soldiers," said senior wingback Curtis Williams, referring to Darr's tradition of having his players march onto the field in military fashion while he calls cadence.

From a rather humble origin as a municipally-funded enterprise with $6,000 in seed money to a major league player with a $30 million budget and an endowment approaching $90 million, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has a lot of history behind it as it opens its 90th season this week. There's a lot of history in front of it, too. In July, the BSO made international headlines when the board of directors named Marin Alsop to succeed Yuri Temirkanov as music director in 2007. But that historic appointment - Alsop will become the first woman to head a major American orchestra - was tempered by something nearly as historic: the public announcement that a majority of the musicians opposed the appointment.

If you've ever devoted a supreme effort to a project, taking an approach maybe a little off the beaten path, only to have your work criticized afterward, you'll understand the frustration Fox officials are feeling as they approach their final season of hockey coverage.For four years, the network attempted to take a game that was and still is largely on the fringe of the American sports consciousness and bring it into the 20th century, only to have virtually every move met with criticism from the hockey community.

Cast and crew from HBO's The Wire, augmented by a few hundred friends, fans and family members, took over the Senator Theatre yesterday afternoon to mark the opening of the show's fifth and final season. Which made yesterday both a celebration and a final goodbye. "It's like when you read a great book and you get to the end," said Deirdre Lovejoy, who has played Assistant State's Attorney Rhonda Pearlman on the show since season one. "You're sad and angry that it's over, but you realize the story's been told."

The golf course at Fort Meade will close May 1 after more than six decades of play, officials at the Army base said Thursday. The 27-hole course, which saw 35,000 rounds of play last year, had been scheduled to close in September to accommodate building projects at the rapidly growing installation. But the date was moved up to accommodate construction deadlines, effectively canceling the final season of play. Fort Meade garrison commander Col. Edward C. Rothstein called the closure "an emotional issue.

I have a feeling "Mad Men" is not going to end so happily for some of its fans. I say that after watching Sunday night's opener of the final season and hearing creator Matthew Weiner talk about where the series is going in its last 14 episodes. Before the final credits tonight, viewers will see one of the two characters who matters most, Don Draper (Jon Hamm), near spiritual paralysis, and the other, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), brought to her knees in emotional pain. You'll hear Don saying things like, "She knows I'm a terrible husband … I really thought I could do it this time … I keep wondering, 'Have I broken the vessel?

Eastern Tech pitcher Jordan Cargile led her team to its best season in the program's history last season. Now, she is fully focused on taking her team to an even higher level. The Mavericks surged through the 2013 regular season and playoffs, only to fall short in the Class 3A championship game to Northern-Calvert, which at the time was the top-ranked team in the nation by MaxPreps. Cargile, the reigning All-Metro Player of the Year, is confident her team has the talent to make another run at the title, and she can't wait to get back on the field.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The pained look Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson has worn for most of the past two months has had more to do with his recovery from knee replacement surgery than what he endured watching the Terps men's basketball team's disappointing season. The solemn look was there Thursday, but this time it had more to do with the Terps' losing another close game than with his new knee. Anderson, who signed Mark Turgeon to an eight-year contract after Gary Williams retired suddenly in March 2011, said he still has faith that the Terps will turn it around.

Maryland's leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is like a slow death. There's nothing immediate about it. It's sad, toxic and terribly emotional. This isn't just about history and tradition - or even conference pride. For seasoned fans of the University of Maryland, it's far deeper. We're witnessing the end of generational ties to Maryland where parents nurtured championship dreams and molded team loyalty for their children based on rivalries of old. The end of conversations and spirited debate about players and stats versus a particular conference team.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Maryland has been desperately striving all season for the sort of standout, ego-boosting win that might begin to brighten a mostly gray season falling short of expectations. The Terps entered Tuesday night's game believing there could be no better occasion than in their farewell to the proud Dean Smith Center, a light-blue nightmare for visitors in which Maryland had lost seven of its previous eight games. But rather than securing a foothold on the season, the foul-hindered Terps slipped again on the road, losing 75-63 to North Carolina.

Within the last year, Seth Allen has broken bones in his left hand and left foot. Before that, he broke the same hand during his senior year of high school. And then there were the two plates and 24 screws inserted in his left elbow as the result of a 2007 bicycle accident that left a 7-inch scar winding down the underside of his forearm. Unfortunate as his history has been, the setbacks have toughened the Maryland point guard's psyche and taught him about the hard work required for a speedy recovery.
