Hereford's baseball team blasted its way into the regular season with an 8-0 start and climbed as high as No. 11 in our poll before slipping to 11-5 and into the others considered list. The fall began when their senior leadoff hitter and center fielder Josh Ketera suffered a hamstring injury and junior starting pitcher Eli Ginsburg developed a sore right elbow. Ketera was batting near .500 at the time and clearing the sky of fly balls, while Ginsburg had a 4-0 record with a 2.65 ERA. When those two went out, Hereford lost five of its next eight games.

The lacrosse sticks collectively fly high in the air and then the Hereford boys lacrosse players all merge into one large mass of celebration.  It's May at UMBC Stadium, and that means the Bulls have won yet another state championship.  The program has won seven all time, and the last three have come under the watchful eye of coach Brian King.  Talk about getting it done -- King has gone 57-3 in his three years as coach. After spending four years as an assistant coach working with the junior varsity, King took over a defending state championship team and tacked on three more crowns. He's never seen a season end on a low note and he does all he can to avoid it from happening.

Ric Evans has no illusions about his new job. In taking over Hereford's football team, Evans inherits one of the most successful programs in Baltimore County - if not the state - from one of the best coaches to walk the sideline, Steve Turnbaugh, a two-time All-Metro Coach of the Year who guided the Bulls to three state titles and 11 state tournament appearances in 19 seasons. "I'm certainly not going to try and fill the shoes of the guy before me. He is a legend," said Evans, who spent the last eight seasons as a Hereford assistant coach and takes the reins Wednesday, the first day of practice for public school teams.

The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association confirmed Thursday it is planning to return the cross country state championship meet to Hereford this year.

Sparks said the final decision will come in early September although it's on the MPSSAA's cross country bulletin that the state title meet is going back to Hereford.

Editorial from The Aegis | May 27, 2014
After a winter like the one that seems like it ended only a few days ago, it's natural for conversations to turn to matters relating to when it's good policy to close schools because of snow, ice or some other inclement weather. The starting point in making such decisions always should be that it is bad public policy to put children at heightened risk of injury, or worse, and it's better to err on the side of caution than to risk safety in the name of preventing the loss of a snow day. Invariably, however, geography comes into play.

It's over. The Hereford boys lacrosse team  had its string of six straight Class 3A-2A state titles end on Wednesday night  when a talented Kent Island team earned an 8-6 win in the title game. The Bulls had been 9-for-9 in state title games before the loss, and their six straight titles and nine overall are state records. While last night was the time to report about Hereford's loss and how it came about -- the Buccaneers from Queen Anne's County had the answers and were the better team, albeit slightly -- now is the time to applaud the Bulls for their astonishing run. Prior to last night, the last time they lost a playoff game was in 2007, when Baltimore County rival Catonsville came away with an 8-7 win in the North regional semifinals.    Every year, the level of play from opponents increases and the Bulls had a bigger and bigger target on their back as the state titles piled up.  And every year, the Bulls managed to stay a step ahead of the competition.

The Hereford boys lacrosse team had grown accustomed to visiting UMBC Stadium this time of year and joyously piling up to take the team photo with the championship plaque in the end. The No. 11 Bulls had never lost a state championship game and won the past six Class 3A-2A state titles and nine overall, both state records, as they tried to further pad the record book on Wednesday night. But this time the opposition, Kent Island, came with a loaded roster, an impressive collection of wins in the regular season and showing no jitters in its first state title game appearance.
