Amber Milnes Aberdeen In her first season with the Eagles, Milnes faced a couple of daunting tasks -- rebuilding after graduating three starters from last year's state championship team and then rebuilding again after 2011-12 All-Metro Player of the Year Brionna Jones tore an anterior cruciate ligament in January, which forced her to miss the rest of the season. With two freshman and two sophomore starters, she converted a team that had been centered on the 6-foot-3 Jones into an up-tempo team in which everyone had to contribute.

Southern's Linda Kilpatrick has won more games than any other girls basketball coach in Anne Arundel County history, and she's set to reach another major milestone in the coming days. In her 38th season at the Harwood school, Kilpatrick is on the verge of her 500th career victory. With a 499-378 career record, she already has the most wins among active girls basketball coaches in the Baltimore metro area.

There has been a change in Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland C Conference softball - primarily on the mound. "Last year, you had four teams - Friends, Park, Chapelgate and St. John's - and those four teams had pitching," St. Paul's coach John Meil said. "We've played seven games [this season] and with one exception, all of the teams have pitching or developing pitching." Friday's showdown between two of the league's top teams featured a pair of the best pitchers, Park senior Madison Elliott (2.06 ERA, 54 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings)

Lin James, Lin James tried to keep the secret. Sure, a lot of people knew the North Harford girls basketball coach was close to her 500th career victory. They just didn't know how close. James didn't want them to know. She didn't want extra pressure on her players to deliver anything more than their best effort. Then two weeks ago on her way to work, James noticed the marquee sign in front of the Pylesville school: "When will Mrs. James get 500?" Right then, James knew she would not mark the next milestone in her illustrious coaching career in private.

With hard-working, talented players but no superstar, Peace-Able's team was truly greater than the sum of its parts. The No. 3 Engineers used that team approach to go undefeated until the state semifinal and post the best record in school history (23-1). She preached defense, and Poly allowed just 27.95 points per game - fewer than any other team in the state tournament. They weren't fancy, but they excelled at the basics, winning the Baltimore City Division I championship and the Class 4A North regional title before falling to eventual state champion Gaithersburg, 47-30.
