Player of the Year Allison Perkins, St. Mary's A first-year starter, the junior midfielder showed an early penchant for dishing out assists that didn't stop until the Saints captured the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A1 Conference crown. Fittingly, Perkins' 106th and final assist of the year helped produce the game-winning goal that lifted the Saints past Severn, 7-6, in the conference final. She finished with 20 goals, collected 27 ground balls and caused eight turnovers.

Many Marylanders know the cast by heart: The Meyerhoff is the home of Baltimore's symphony. Center Stage is a regional theater. The Mechanic presents Broadway-style shows, and the Lyric is for opera and touring productions. The Gilliam isn't yet such a household name, but it has the potential to be. "The Gilliam" is short for the James H. and Louise Hayley Gilliam Concert Hall. With 2,000 seats, it's the largest of several performing spaces inside the $40 million Carl J. Murphy Fine Arts Center that opens next month on the Morgan State University campus in northeast Baltimore.

Six whimsical sculptures took over the amphitheater at the Inner Harbor on Saturday as the annual City Sand festival pitted local architects and designers in a somewhat artistic race. Competitors, who took their theme from the life and writings of Edgar Allan Poe on the 200th anniversary of his birth, labored for three hours in sandboxes. They each sculpted something Poe-ish from 100 cubic feet of sand. Water made the sand more malleable and the sculptors hydrated in the summer heat. "Sand is definitely a different medium," said Cherisse Dandrow, a landscape designer with Mahan Rykiel Associates.

Boys Player of the Year Troy Demers, Annapolis: Although this season did not end with a second state boys singles title, Demers again proved he is one of the better players in the state. His 23-1 record reflected another county and regional title. The senior advanced to the state semifinals before losing to eventual state runner-up Chase Dawson of Dulaney. A four year starter at No. 1 singles, Demers did not lose an Anne Arundel County match his final two seasons. His state title last year was the first ever by an Annapolis male tennis player.

Start with a 52,000-square-foot building in Rockville, add subsidized rents, blend in the know-how of the state's business and financial community, and simmer gently for three to five years.

Those officials and about two dozen budding entrepreneurs attended a ceremonial "topping off" yesterday of the $4.5 million Maryland Technology Development Center.
