The event at the Under Armour campus in Baltimore played out like a fashion show and felt like a pep rally - replete with a standing-room-only crowd, bass-pumping music, thundersticks, Ravens cheerleaders and dance moves by mascot Poe. The end result, though, was all charity. With one athlete from each team acting as a model, Under Armour and the Ravens on Wednesday revealed the new uniforms they're donating to the varsity football and girls basketball programs of all 24 Baltimore public high schools.

The banner hanging inside Meade's gymnasium listing the school's Anne Arundel County championship teams instilled conflicting emotions in Christina Mason. There was the sense of pride for the crowns captured by the Mustangs boys teams in outdoor and indoor track and field last year. As a member of the girls squad, Mason witnessed the subsequent celebrations. And yet the senior couldn't help but also feel a sense of emptiness because the girls team had not accomplished a similar feat. "It was motivation because we wanted to see girls track and field be up there, too," Mason said of the banner that greeted the squad every time practice was held inside the gym. "We wanted to be just like the boys."

A plan was in place. The Waves were to observe strict coaches' guidelines: 9:30 p.m. curfew, rest after every game and a healthy breakfast. No meat, no grease, no potatoes, no butter, no fried foods. And most of all: no Mickey Mouse. The Howard County-based girls team had come to play basketball at the Amateur Athletic Union tournament at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., and that was exactly what they were going to do. The Waves had been preparing for this moment since February, when they finished first in the state competition in the 13-and-under category.

Coach of the YearRalph Luce, Arundel: Luce, in his 19th year at the helm of the Wildcats, watched his team pull off an unexpected sweep of the boys and girls team titles at this year Anne Arundel County Championships at Annapolis. "It's not very often that anyone, other than Severna Park, wins both the boys and girls cross country titles," said Luce, who gives much of the credit to his assistant coach, Don Higdon. "I've never had a team that was as together as this team. There was absolutely no 'I' on either team, just 'us' and that is what makes this year the best one yet."

Mount Hebron's Rohan Nabar and Glenelg's Ryan Yao were freshmen last year when they played for the boys singles title at the Howard County tournament. But neither one will win the title this season. See, you've got to play to win. Nabar, who was unbeaten in the county last season and is ranked third in 16-under in the state, has decided not to play high school tennis. Instead, he is training for national tournaments at the Tennis Center of College Park. Yao, who moved here from the Chicago area before his freshman year, is moving back to Naperville, Ill. He's planning to play in Glenelg's first two matches before moving this weekend.

"We were really pumped up for this game," George said.

Katrina Marinelli swung for the fences and got all ball. "Nice hit," said a teammate. It wasn't really a hit. The 12-year-old Roland Park girl was hitting a softball off a tee into a net during practice, as the Rams, a newly formed girls softball team at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, prepared for an April 8 away game against Dumbarton Middle School in Rodgers Forge. Coaches and parents who organized the team say it's the first girls softball team at the school in many years, if not ever, and a rarity in the budget-conscious Baltimore Public School System, where middle school softball is considered a luxury.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
Commentary is absolutely in order on last week's decision by the powers that be in the management of the high school athletics programs in Harford and Cecil counties to do away with the upper vs. lower division so-called title games. But what to say? One possibility: It's about time. After all, had the practice been done away with after the first season or two of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, maybe the odd custom could have been chalked up to a paperwork mistake in devising the league.

Poly, Milford Mill, Catonsville, Patterson Mill, Howard and New Town were among the girls basketball teams seeded No. 1 in their sections after yesterday's draw for seedings for the state tournament held at Long Reach High School. The brackets also solidify the timing for some anticipated rematches, including a possible third showdown between Poly and City, which are seeded first and second in Class 3A East Section I. There could also be a rematch of last year's state Class 1A championship game early in the tournament although it would be in Class 2A since last year's 1A champion Western Tech and Dunbar have both moved into Class 2A North.

Not long ago, a 5-foot-11 high school girls basketball player like McDonogh's Dajah Logan never would have brought the ball up court. Her job would have been to get inside, get open and take the feed. The taller you were, the less likely you were to be a guard. That started to change on the college level a while ago and now the trend has trickled down. Tall players, such as Logan, Aberdeen's 6-1 Stephanie Jones and Patterson Mill's 6-foot Qalea Ismail, are developing skill sets that allow them to excel in the back court and play multiple positions.

It's always difficult to watch, but it happens with each passing season in all sports. A group comes together with the goal of winning a state title, only to fall short despite the players doing everything they could to make it happen. This time, it was the No. 2 Arundel girls soccer team. The Wildcats played fantastic in Thursday's Class 4A East Section I final against No. 7 Severna Park. But as good as they were with their possession game to create scoring chances, the Falcons were just as good at defending.
