Some wins seem to have more meaning for a successful team, a greater impact over the course of a long basketball season. Calvert Hall had one of those victories Sunday afternoon at Mount St. Joseph. After impressively building a 15-point lead and then seeing it disappear - all mostly happening in the fourth quarter - the Cardinals showed poise in a dramatic final minute that they will long savor. Junior guard Reggie Rouse was the biggest hero at the end for the No. 7 Cardinals as he hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 53 seconds left and then added two free throws with 2.3 seconds left.

Here's a Howard County sports trivia question: Name the gymnasium that never experienced a bouncing ball before becoming the sanctuary of a church that three decades later has spawned a new, much better gymnasium. It is Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City. The thriving Roman Catholic parish's focus of worship on Paulskirk Drive was originally intended to be the gymnasium for the new school of the much older St. Paul's Catholic Church on one of the Ellicott City hillsides overlooking the Patapsco River.

The Bel Air Bobcats' signs were on the gymnasium walls, but Bel Air High School was filled with Fallston pride Thursday evening. More than 600 people attended the graduation of the Fallston Class of 2012, including 277 graduates, as well as the Fallston orchestra and chorus, which provided music for the graduates' procession into and recession from the gymnasium. The ceremonies began with the Pledge of Allegiance, led by valedictorian Kristina Maria Dziki. The patriotic mood continued, with Rick Grambo, vice president of the Harford County Board of Education, encouraging students to take advantage of the opportunities afforded to the graduates because of their status as citizens of the United States.

When Kristyn Kuhn started working at Severn School in the early 1990s, students were still using the original 1922 dining hall and a gym and academic buildings from the 1960s. Plays were performed in a basement where low ceilings made staging the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet a claustrophobic experience. "Juliet's head was bumping into a sprinkler head on the ceiling," said Kuhn, now the school's director of communications and the parent of two sons in the upper school. "There were great programs, but the facilities were so poor."

Elaine Cherneski's gym classes have her pupils climbing walls. Literally. Cherneski is a physical education teacher at Freedom Elementary School in Sykesville, where a climbing wall has been installed to promote upper body strength, coordination and confidence. All first- through fifth-grade pupils use the Horizontal Bouldering Wall, which has epoxy handholds across it. Pupils stand on handholds while moving horizontally across the wall. "Sadly, in today's world, most kids are weak in upper body strength," said Cherneski, the driving force behind acquiring the wall.
