Frostburg is celebrating its bicentennial this weekend. Despite the name Frostburg is not named after Jack Frost or the weather, though the town can become quite frosty with the winds and snow coming down from the Big Savage Mountain . This beautiful historic town in Western Maryland was founded along the path of the National Road originally called Mount Pleasant. The name was changed to Frostburg in honor of Meshach and Catherine Frost , who in 1812 built the first home and tavern for stagecoaches.

- In the heart of this town on the old U.S. National Road in Western Maryland, a woman leans on the front desk of an 1890s-era hotel, her face a study in mixed emotions. Tina Storey loves her work as office manager of Failinger's Hotel Gunter, the grande dame of lodging in Frostburg with its polished oak staircase, Victorian settees and zillions of artifacts and displays that evoke the history of the so-called "Mountain Side of Maryland. " But she's still grieving the woman who revived the place.

Frostburg and the mountains of western Allegany County are under a freeze warning Monday night into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. It is one of Maryland's first freezes of the season, as the coming winter cold marches east and into gradually lower elevations. The timing is just about right on schedule. Temperatures are expected to reach 30-32 degrees overnight along a slice of Allegany County and the West Virginia panhandle. They won't be the first freezing temperatures seen in Maryland so far this season. Garrett County Airport hit 32 degrees early Monday morning and has barely risen warmer than that, at 36 degrees as of 2 p.m. According to a Utah State University database of frost and freeze dates, the cold temperatures are arriving more or less on time.

A 12-6 loss to Salisbury in a Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinal on April 26 closed out the 2014 campaign for Frostburg State. It also signaled the end for the program's first recruiting class. Seventeen seniors graduated as the first group that committed to coach Tommy Pearce and the Bobcats, which fielded a varsity squad in 2011. That class absorbed records of 6-11 and 2-15 in its first two years before enjoying marks of 11-6 in 2013 and 13-5 in 2014. Pearce acknowledged that Senior Day, when the team walloped CAC rival St. Mary's, 17-10, on April 19, was not easy for him. “It was emotional,” he said.

Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Friday's visit was with McDaniel. Monday's visit is with Frostburg State. REVIEW The good: After setting a program record with 11 wins in 2013, the Bobcats improved on that mark with 13 victories this past spring. Included in that 13-5 record was a 4-3 mark in the Capital Athletic Conference and their first win in the league tournament - a 17-9 throttling of 2013 tournament champion St. Mary's on April 23. It was a welcomed departure from last year's 11-6 loss to Mary Washington in the same round of the CAC tournament.

Responding to complaints that universities have fallen short in policing sexual assaults on their campuses, the White House announced a series of measures Tuesday intended to pressure college officials to step up efforts. The Obama administration wants universities to conduct "campus climate" surveys beginning next year and to clarify sexual assault policies so that victims know where to turn for help. The government is also creating a website, NotAlone.gov, that it says will help victims file federal complaints and access data on federal investigations.

For the second straight year, Frostburg State finished fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference, earning for the program the right to play host to a league tournament quarterfinal. Last spring, the fourth-seeded Bobcats fell, 11-6, to No. 5 seed Mary Washington. Coach Tommy Pearce is hoping for a vastly different result when St. Mary's visits on Wednesday. “It's a great achievement,” Pearce said of hosting a conference tournament game. “We did have that happen last year, and last year, we beat Mary Washington and then they came back up that following Wednesday and beat us. So we know it's really hard to beat a team twice and St. Mary's is a good team.

Losses generally don't produce positive results, with the exception of the requisite teaching lessons that coaches like to recite. For Frostburg State, however, Wednesday's 8-7 loss to No. 19 and Capital Athletic Conference rival York provided a benefit. Without leading scorer Ryan Serio, the Bobcats rallied from a 4-1 deficit early in the second quarter and had a chance to tie the score in the final 6 minutes, 48 seconds of regulation before falling short. It was an outing that gave coach Tommy Pearce hope.

Kodie Englehart recorded just one assist in his first game of the season, but the senior midfielder's presence alone was beneficial in No. 7 Washington College's 12-7 victory over Frostburg State on Saturday. “He's got an energy that you just can't try to replicate with anybody else,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Monday. “He was flying around, but I also think it was probably better for him to get his first game under his belt because of the way that Kodie is. He has such high energy and high emotion that he may have been a little too high on Saturday.

The Shoremen (4-0) elected to move senior J.D. Campbell to the starting unit, joining senior Jim Cusick and junior Sam Birnbaum.
