Every good coach has a way of getting the most out of an athlete.Some athletes need pampering, others need to be yelled at and others can make the most of the most subtle points.Westminster cross country coach Jim Gilford was trying to make one of those subtle points to senior Jim Holford a couple of summers ago.Prior to every fall cross country season, Gilford takes his 10 top runners out on a trial run. The top five go in one group, the remaining five go with Gilford in another.Holford, a junior at the time, found himself running with his coach.

Don't expect miracles out of the Western Maryland men's and women's cross country teams this season.The men's team has only six runners and the women have three freshmen and three sophomores among their top seven runners.There is one major bright spot for the men -- sophomore Greg Davis, who sets a shining example every time he steps on the course for the Green Terror.Davis, a 1985 graduate of Westminster High, has been out of high school nine years, but his zest for the sport has driven him to the No. 1 position on the team and a 15th-place finish in the Centennial Conference championships last season.

FREDERICK -- "Ho hum," some people said yesterday after the Westminster boys cross country team won its seventh Central Maryland Conference championship in the seven years the meet has been held.But they didn't understand the significance of this victory for Owls coach Jim Gilford."What makes this one special is we lost nearly everybody from last year but still won," said Gilford, whose Owls will seek a 10th straight Carroll County championship Friday at Western Maryland College.The Owls placed four runners in the top 10 yesterday to hold off a challenge from host Linganore and win the meet in what was supposed to be a down year for the team.

Seeking further insight into the dynamics of the Maryland judicial system, we ventured yesterday morning to the old Sears store on North Avenue.This might seem odd to persons unaware of the department store's conversion to a complex housing some of Baltimore's District Courts. It's a large, ugly, nearly windowless building -- I call it "stacked chest-freezer architecture" -- that looms like a gray monolith on the city's hazy eastern horizon. It is located in an interesting neighborhood. Nearby are the Great Blacks in Wax Museum, the William C. March funeral establishment and the Veterans Warehouse, an emporium of previously used clothing that I have heard referred to as "Saks North Avenue."
