In his third year as head coach of the Westminster boys lacrosse team, Steve DeFeo has the Owls on the verge of history. A win against North Carroll on Friday night would complete the program's first perfect regular season. But DeFeo and the Owls have bigger plans.  After falling to South River, 10-8, in last year's Class 4A-3A state championship, the Owls are a team full of seniors ready to take that final step to bring home the program's first state crown. A Westminster alum who played at St. Mary's, DeFeo spent 10 years as an assistant coach under Owls longtime coach Jim Peters from 1995-2005 before returning in 2011 to take over as head coach.  DeFeo, a financial advisor at Wells Fargo in Westminster, expects his players to be passionate about lacrosse, play as hard in practice as in games and to have fun.  He's quick to note a big part of the team's success is due to his assistant coaches Tarhy Alford, Brandon Johnson and Mark Penn.

But I try to push it a little bit by wearing some really stylish shoes. ... Off work, I like to be a little bit more fun." We think the Annapolis resident got it just right.

"Crises like these are buying opportunities, but they don't come the moment trading reopens," says Tom McClellan's Market Report. "Sellers have to exhaust their panic while buyers build enough courage to come back in. We've reached the bottom of this sell-off, and we'll have a strong rally," the industry newsletter adds. "Decisions made under panic conditions are usually regretted," says Wright Investors' Service. "We will now become more conservative. This is not the time to panic, but to judge quietly as facts are known."
