The Hammond baseball team has placed four players on the Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches preseason team, thought to be a possible state record. "I can remember Calvert Hall having three," said Mount St. Joseph coach Dave Norton, who has been coaching the game for 35 years. "But I can't recall four. It's very, very unusual for schools to have multiple players." Hammond's team members are all seniors: pitcher-third baseman Travis Clark, first baseman Tyler Clark, pitcher Danny Wissmann and shortstop Jared Christensen.

For the first time this season, the Ravens' high school Quarterback Challenge ended in a tie, with Hammond's Tyler Martin and Huntingtown's Robbie Payne hitting the 15-yard drop-in net and missing their other two throws at halftime of the Ravens 20-17 win over the Bengals on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Usually, the two would break the tie with one pass for the longest distance, but a Ravens' spokesman said there was no tiebreaker due to miscommunication. Martin had to rally to tie Payne, who hit the 15-yard net on his first attempt.

The Snyder family considers itself pretty good at "whipping restaurants back into shape. " They've done it several times in recent years when flooding caused temporary closures of the family's Snyder's Willow Grove restaurant, and they're planning to do it when they reopen late next month. But when Snyder's Willow Grove opens this time, it won't be at the familiar Hammonds Ferry Road location in Linthicum Heights but at a new one about a mile and a half away. "The family doesn't want to give up the restaurant business," said manager Kim Snyder, daughter of owner Vernon Snyder.

The senior pitcher-third baseman led the Golden Bears (15-1) to a 4-0 week with strong pitching and fine work at the plate. Clark, who maintains a 3.15 grade-point average and has accepted a scholarship to play at South Carolina-Aiken, earned the save in Hammond's 8-4 win over River Hill on Thursday and was the winning pitcher as a starter the following day in a 14-6 victory over Mount Hebron. For the week, which also included wins against Howard and Wilde Lake, Clark went 6-for-12 with three homers, nine RBIs and three walks.

After 51/2 innings Tuesday night, No. 3 Hammond held a 4-2 edge over North Hagerstown. But eight runs in the bottom of the sixth gave the Hubs a commanding lead, propelling them to a 10-4 victory in the state Class 2A baseball semifinals at Arundel High. Things fell apart for the Golden Bears (21-3) after coach Michael Lerner pulled senior starting pitcher Danny Wissmann with one out and two men on in the sixth. Lerner said he and his coaching staff made the move because Wissmann was struggling to find the strike zone after throwing 122 pitches.

There's only one word describe this softball season: Upsets. Two more happened Monday, and the list of leaders has been trimmed in half.

Hebron, Reservoir, Howard and Glenelg had shared the league lead going into today's games. Both Howard and Glenelg won their games today to remain tied at the top, with two county losses each.

About 60 Hammond High School students and faculty gathered in the cafeteria last week for a brief stint in the food service industry. They donned hairnets and gloves and branched off to various tables to form assembly lines to package and ship about 10,000 dehydrated meals destined for people in impoverished areas overseas. Students said they hoped some of the food would head to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Visayas region of the Philippines last month. The effort marked the third consecutive year Hammond High School has staged a meal-packing event.

Most of the players chosen for the Ravens' high school Quarterback Challenge have a few weeks to prepare, but Hammond's Tyler Martin doesn't mind being a late substitution for this Sunday's challenge at halftime of the Ravens-Bengals game. “It's awesome,” Martin said. “When coach (Justin Carey) called me up and told me, I was shocked. There's going to be a lot of people there and it's a great opportunity.” Martin, a senior, will square off against Robbie Payne, a junior from Huntingtown in Calvert County.

After Hammond's football team dealt River Hill its first loss in more than two years, Bears coach Justin Carey was named Ravens' Coach of the Week Wednesday. Carey, in his first season as the Bears coach after being an assistant at Atholton, has led them to a 5-2 record, but no win was bigger than Friday's 47-38 upset at then-No. 2 River Hill , the two-time defending Class 3A state champion. The Hawks were riding a 30-game winning streak, the Baltimore area's longest active football run, and hadn't lost a game since Hammond beat them in September 2011.

Seven could be the new lucky number for quarterbacks Duke Etchison, of Westminster, and Tyler Martin, of Hammond. The two seniors each had a hand in seven touchdowns Friday night, and while Etchison's seven tied a state record, Martin's did not, because only six of his were passing touchdowns. Martin, however, came awfully close to two other state records. Etchison, in his first season with the Owls, threw seven touchdowns in the team's 51-22 win over Century, joining a crowded field of Maryland quarterbacks tied atop the single-game passing touchdown list.

Hammond football did the unlikely Friday night, ending No. 2 River Hill's 30-game winning streak, 47-38, in Clarksville. The Hawks, who have won the last two 3A state titles, last lost at Hammond on Sept. 23, 2011. Hammond senior quarterback Tyler Martin threw five touchdown passes in the win: three to sophomore Deandre House and two to senior Lolando Hamilton. "We were just trying to get our receivers the ball in space, using all of our weapons," Martin said. "We changed up the pass protection a little and my teammates really stepped up to help me out a lot and I'm really proud of them … I just had to close my eyes [after the game]

A firefighter was injured while fighting a fire at a home in Lansdowne early Tuesday morning, according to the Baltimore County Fire Department. Firefighters first responded to the 2000 block of Hammonds Ferry Road about 1 a.m. and found flames coming through the roof of the home, the department said. As they began operations to control the fire from inside the home, a firefighter sustained an undisclosed injury and a "mayday" signal went out, the department said. A second alarm was called as the firefighter was removed from the home.
