Carver A&T coach Ralph Olson started the year with a simple goal for his volleyball team. He wanted seven wins. He had to revise his goals upward twice during the year, but it was the 14th win that eluded the Wildcats. That would have been a state championship. The Wildcats (13-6) battled hard, but came up short of Olson's latest goal, bowing to Allegany County's Fort Hill 25-12, 25-23, 25-12 in the Class 1A state volleyball championship game at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

Gage Shaffer had no other offers. He had very little contact with the Maryland coaching staff. That's why he was stunned when Terps football coach Randy Edsall offered the 6-foot-7 quarterback a full ride. “It was pretty crazy,” Shaffer said. “I wasn't expecting it at all.” Shaffer -- a rising senior at Frankfort High School in Ridgeley, W.Va. --  attended a football camp at Maryland on Saturday morning. When camp ended, Edsall pulled him aside and told him the news.

Fort Hill's Ty Johnson was undecided at breakfast, got a new offer by lunch and was a Maryland commit by dinner. Johnson, who played running back, wide receiver and cornerback for the Sentinels as a junior last season, committed to Maryland on Sunday after just a few hours of deliberating. For the Cumberland native - who was attending one of head coach Randy Edsall's prospect camps for the second summer in a row - the decision to stay close to home was an easy one. “They gave me an offer around lunchtime, and I was just thinking about it,” Johnson said in a phone interview.

The dream season for the Douglass football team did not come to a perfect end Saturday afternoon, as Fort Hill spoiled the No. 14 Ducks' bid to finish undefeated with a 25-0 victory in the Class 1A state football championship at M&T Bank Stadium. Still, the Ducks enjoyed the best season in school history with a 13-1 record. They had never won a playoff game before, much less reached the state final. Two years ago, they finished 3-7. “I believe we set the tone,” senior running back Da'Quan Alexander said.

It seems unlikely that Woodlawn coach George Goudy would gauge his team's ability by its performance against a team with a losing record.Unless that team is as respected as Allegany County's Fort Hill, that is.No. 14 Woodlawn (7-2) traveled to Fort Hill in Cumberland and came away Saturday night with a 14-10 victory. Rodney Pettit's 2-yard touchdown run with 1 minute, 2 seconds left capped a 52-yard drive, as the Warriors rallied from a 10-7 deficit.Goudy said that despite Fort Hill's 4-5 record, the Sentinels are the toughest team the Warriors have faced.

Then, snap over the punter's head set up Cambridge's first touchdown. "We just rallied the guys up after the botched snap," Ducks coach Elwood Townsend said.
