Senior Pat Speicher told junior Evan Weintraub that he was getting the ball and would get the chance to be a hero. That was just fine with Weintraub, who made a three-pointer with 19 seconds left to give host Centennial a one-point lead on the way to a 54-50 upset of No. 12 River Hill last night. "Speicher was telling me he was going to get me the ball, so I was like, `All right, I've got to shoot this,' " said Weintraub, who finished the play after senior Riley Fritts grabbed his seventh rebound at the other end to put things in motion for the Eagles (12-5)

Coach of the YearJim Hill, Centennial: Only one other team in county history ever approached the kind of record that Centennial produced this season. None ever won its first 22 games. Hill, 46, has coached the varsity for 13 seasons and this was Centennial's third county championship in the past five years -- but the first outright title. It took Centennial 17 years to win its first championship. Using a motion offense and man-to-man defense, the Eagles outdistanced their county competition by a wide margin.

The Westminster Owls proved they are much more than a one-man team yesterday at Centennial. Centennial coach Jim Hill thought that if the Eagles could stop Jon-David Byers, who averaged almost 20 points last season, then that would go a long way toward defeating Westminster. The Eagles held Byers to six points in the first half on two three-point shots, but they trailed by 17 points at halftime on their way to a 70-52 season-opening defeat. "They have a lot of weapons," Centennial coach Jim Hill said.

By the time Seattle Slew arrived at Pimlico for the 102nd Preakness on May 21, 1977, the fairy tale was one-third told.A modest $17,500 purchase as a yearling, Seattle Slew had starred in the rags-to-riches story of winning the Kentucky Derby. His owners -- two fun-loving couples in their 30s dubbed the "Slew Crew" -- were the darlings of American racing.The nation's sports fans watched eagerly as Seattle Slew -- this dark-brown blaze of speed so awkward as a baby that his handlers called him "Baby Huey" after the clumsy comic-strip character -- tried to do what no horse had ever done: win the Triple Crown without having lost a race.

Centennial won the most competitive boys basketball race in Howard County history yesterday, out-dueling No. 19-ranked Oakland Mills on the final day of the regular season. Never before had six teams remained in contention until the next-to-last week of the season. Before a large crowd at Oakland Mills last night, the Eagles (16-6 overall, 14-4 league) won their third county title in five years, 55-49, over Oakland Mills, with a combination of depth, balance, skill and heart. A 20-3 run in the second and third quarters also helped.

Centennial doesn't create much highlight reel material on offense. But the Eagles sure can play defense. In a must-win game on its home floor last night, Centennial held Atholton to six baskets in the second half, including two in the fourth quarter, and broke open a close game in the final two minutes to win, 56-45. Centennial avenged an earlier 15-point loss to Atholton. With three games to play, the Eagles (15-3 overall, 14-2 league) have only Long Reach to fear as an obstacle to a Howard County championship.
