When Cassadee Pope introduced herself to America - at least the segment that watches reality singing competitions - two years ago on NBC's “The Voice,” she sang Natalie Imbruglia's hit, “Torn,” to a huge ovation. In a sense, Pope, who ended up winning the show's third season, was also saying goodbye to the old her. From 2008 to 2011, Pope was the lead singer of Hey Monday, a pop-punk band that toured with Fall Out Boy and Towson-bred All Time Low but is now on an indefinite hiatus as Pope pursues a solo country career.

Maggy Kilroy hit the last shot to beat Severn in their first game last season. Yesterday, she nearly did it again.This time around, visiting Notre Dame Prep (14-7) waited a little too long to finish a tremendous comeback attempt, as No. 19 Severn (13-5) advanced to Monday's Association of Independent School's championship against McDonogh with a hard-fought 70-68 victory."They [Notre Dame] never did quit, they are a very good team," said Severn coach Maurice Jennings. "A lot of their key players are seniors, and that kept them in the game."

For Tim McGraw, the process of selecting songs for an album and picking movie scripts is no different. He must respond to the material on a basic emotional level. "I have to take an intellectual cap off and wait to be hit viscerally," McGraw, the 46-year-old country star and actor, said from the road recently. "You have to be moved. Whether it's funny, sad, tragic or even mean - something's got to prickle the hairs on the back of your neck. " Although McGraw - who headlines Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va., on Saturday - has sold more than 40 million albums and won three Grammy Awards, he says he's only now figuring out how to craft the music he wants to create.

Roland Park goalie Melissa Coyne spent the first half of yesterday's game against Severn jumping up and down in front of the bench.She spent the first 15 minutes of the second half shutting down No. 12 Severn.Playing her first game since having her appendix removed three weeks ago, Coyne made four outstanding saves and a handful of perfect clears to spark the No. 1 Reds to a 10-8 victory in an AIS A Division nonleague game.Converted field player Emily Lough (two saves) played a solid first half in goal, but the Reds needed Coyne's experience to stay on top in what turned out to be the critical minutes of the game.

It's Armed Forces Day dear readers. Saturday is also the running of the 137th Preakness, part of the Triple Crown. After the Kentucky Derby, now Maryland gets to shine. Lots of hoopla and black-eyed Susans will be the fare at the Pimlico Racetrack. Regretfully, Havre de Grace lost out of this and many other races, when the famous Havre de Grace Racetrack, nicknamed "The Graw" on Old Bay Lane, closed in 1950, and its races were transferred to Pimlico. Much of our ol' racetrack still stands on the grounds of the Maryland National Guard.

The smell of beer and fried food saturated the lawn and pavilion at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Packed for the co-headlining tour of Maroon 5 and Train, the concert brought generations together. Teens perspiring from Adam Levine-induced delirium mingled raucously with fans of adult alternative band Train and Gavin DeGraw. Train, who just performed at the Preakness Stakes in May, signaled its entrance to the stage with the ear-piercing whistle of a railroad train. The chugging of gears was greeted with excited screams from the band's older fans and ended, much to their delight, with the appearance of frontman Patrick Monahan.

These days, Severn girls basketball coach Rhonda Warmsley-George is so relaxed while watching her team play that she occasionally forgets to check the scoreboard.The Admirals haven't been tested much this season in winning nine of 11 games. Until Thursday's contest against Arlington Baptist, they had allowed more than 20 points just once when victorious, and that was a 42-21 rout of Glenelg Country School.No wonder Warmsley-George hardly noticed when Arlington Baptist made a late, but futile, run.With its starters on the bench, Severn almost squandered a 21-6 halftime lead.
