Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

Anne Arundel accountant Steve Dannenmann, who finished second in the World Series of Poker main event in July, winning $4.25 million, just missed another poker payday yesterday. Dannenmann, playing in the World Poker Tour's stop at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, N.J., was eliminated in 50th place - five spots shy of making it into the money. The 45th-place finisher earns $12,489 and the top prize is nearly $1.5 million. The Borgata Poker Open, scheduled to conclude today, started with 516 players, and Dannenmann outlasted pros such as Chris Ferguson, Eric Seidel and Cyndy Violette.

Severna Park has dominated Class 4A boys cross country the last few years. The Falcons won the last two state championships by wide margins and easily beat most opponents during the season. That didn't happen during the Bull Run Invitational's Elite Division race Saturday at Hereford. No. 2 Dulaney has run well early this fall, and the Lions pushed No. 1 Severna Park, before the Falcons pulled out a seven-point victory. This race was likely a preview of what will be seen at the Class 4A state title meet on Nov. 8, also at Hereford, and both teams knew it. Eric Walz of Dulaney was the individual champion, taking first in 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds as the Lions put two runners in the top 10. But Severna Park used the depth that's made it so hard to beat over the last three seasons.

In the Baltimore Road Runners Club five-mile foot race held yesterday in Druid Hill Park, victory went not to the swiftest but rather to the runner with the most self-awareness. A prize of a Timex sports watch goes to the runner who most accurately predicts his or her finishing time. This year, Jamie Kaizer and Tyler Bray tied for first place in the men's category, finishing within a second of their predicted times. Both won watches. In the women's category, Jeanette Novak and Robin Goodwin finished with the most accurate times, garnering watches for both of them.

NASCAR driver Justin Boston watched his first stock car race in Dover, Del., and he'll be returning there Saturday - this time, behind the wheel. Boston, of Sparks, made his Nationwide Series debut in the VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 last Saturday in Sparta, Ky., finishing ninth out of 40 drivers, but his second race in the top-tier minor league series will be at a location closer to his heart. "It will be really cool to run there for the first time after watching there [while] growing up," Boston said this week.

NEW YORK -- A key ingredient to the Orioles' formula for winning this season has been hitting home runs. They have relied on it more than any club in the major leagues. But in their 9-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday afternoon, the Orioles mounted their best offensive outing in nearly two weeks without a homer - all while ending New York's postseason hopes in front of an announced 46,056 at Yankee Stadium. The nine runs were the Orioles' highest offensive output since a 10-6 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sept.

The Orioles drew an announced 38,329 for Sunday's finale at Camden Yards for an overall attendance of 2,464,473 in the 80-date season. That easily surpassed their 2012 total of 2.36 million despite having one fewer date (the doubleheader this year on May 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates was a single-gate admission). This is the highest total attendance the Orioles have had in a season since they drew 2.625 million in 2005. This year's average attendance of 30,806 is the first time Camden Yards has averaged more than 30,000 since 2005.

In NFL locker rooms, respect isn't earned only on the field. The almighty dollar also helps. When the Cleveland Browns signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year, $68 million contract in May that included $45 million guaranteed, it affirmed his reputation as one of the top cornerbacks in the game - and his value to the AFC North franchise. "What sets Joe Haden apart? He's not an average corner," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith said. "His contract, that shows you he's not average.

In an organization that relies heavily on the acceptable behavior of its employees to support its mission, there are generally accepted ways to deal with a crisis. First, if an employee is found to be in violation of the "acceptable behavior," deal with it immediately. The Ravens were told by the NFL that Ray Rice was suspended without pay for two games. Last Monday, after the video tape of Mr. Rice hitting his wife in an elevator became public, the Ravens terminated his contract.

After starting fast but finishing poorly in its first two games, the Morgan State football team flipped the script Saturday. The Bears overcame a lethargic start, woke up their sleeping offense and scored all four of the game's touchdowns in the second half to knock off visiting Bowie State, 28-3, before an announced 4,238 at Hughes Stadium. Morgan State was happy to win its first game of the season, but Bears first-year coach Lee Hull said the team can ill afford slow starts.
