With only one season left to complete her high school career, Sarah Lloyd has been part of five state championship teams - two in lacrosse and three in swimming. Last spring, the midfielder was sidelined with a stress fracture in her shin. When she returned late in the season, she took over in goal, making critical saves, including some in a 7-5 state title victory. A swimmer since she was 6, Lloyd and her twin sister, Emily, were keys to three Falcons state swimming championships in four years.

Tom Neuberger's initial impression of the Green Hornets baseball program was less than flattering."I was disappointed," said Neuberger, who moved to Severna Park from Lake Shore eight years ago. "It wasjust too casual. The emphasis was on community play, and the attitude was, 'let's have fun.' There was no serious baseball."Not one to wait for change, Neuberger got together with other disgruntled parents and coaches and met with the Greater Severna Park Athletic Association in an effort to form a "select" baseball team for boys who wanted to take the sport more seriously.

At Severna Park, the latest version of the Sister Act is playing.Never mind Whoopi Goldberg, who played the impish, irreverent nun in the movie of that name. Severna Park's Sister Act consists of five pairs of sisters, including two sets of identical twins, on the 38-girl soccer squad.Jen Kaupa, a senior midfielder, can see similarities between what Goldberg did in bringing a choir together to sing harmoniously and the Falcons, who have won three state championships since 1988."Whoopi pulled all those people together," said Kaupa, whose sister, freshman Lisa, is a junior-varsity defenseman.

Sit on the deck by the Whitehurst pool and you get two things: a view that stretches to Kent Island, and a good idea of why people who live in this Anne Arundel County community describe it as living in summer camp. Whitehurst sits on the Magothy River, near where Cattail Creek enters it. The social center of the community is its outdoor waterfront pool - which couldn't be built under current waterfront protection laws - and a clubhouse with year-round parties and activities.

For many families, the 288-acre Kinder Farm Park the county acquired in 1979 is the place where children play Green Hornets -- that is, Greater Severna Park Athletic Association sports.For mothers of young children, it's the sandy playground with swings, slides and a log-cabin playhouse.For gardeners without space at home to cultivate, it's holy ground.On Friday, ground was broken for a $12 million, three-phase project to expand facilities and services in the park by 2002.Presiding at the ceremony were County Executive John G. Gary, Tom Angelis, county director of recreation and parks; and Brian Woodward, the department's chief of environmental programs and facilities.
