Archbishop Curley coach Barry Stitz had a long talk with his son, Ben, just prior to varsity tryouts this summer. Stitz had to explain that as the coach's son, Ben was inevitably going to be "under a microscope. " After coaching his son for Fewster F.C., a club team, the coach knew his son, a freshman, had the tactical ability to be a varsity player. The challenge would be the physical rigors of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, competing against players three or even four years older and carrying the same last name as the guy in charge.

Chuck Struhar, the Long Reach athletic director since the school opened in 1996, is taking over the Lightning's varsity softball team again this spring after a one-year hiatus.

Cottrell soon found himself in the starting lineup and never left, enjoying a solid four-year career that was highlighted by the Gladiators' county championship season this spring.

Preparing to take on his opponent from visiting McDonogh, Nikos Daley was unaware he was about to face Cory Haugh, the same wrestler who had pinned him in less than a minute during a previous match. Loyola High School's junior varsity coach, Steve Thompson, escorted Daley to the center of the mat for the neutral, standing start. The referee motioned the McDonogh wrestler forward and instructed both boys to touch palms, leaning closer to Daley so he was sure to understand what was said.

The play happened so quickly, it could easily have been missed. But it showed why Bel Air sophomore guard Vernon Joines has become so valuable this season. Bel Air was trailing by two points late in a recent game with C. Milton Wright when Joines reached out and intercepted an inbounds pass. He then drove to the basket, made a layup and got fouled. Joines made the free throw, and the three-point play gave the Bobcats the lead for good. That play was Joines' season in microcosm. He is constantly diving for loose balls, deflecting passes, poking away dribbles - doing something that's bothering other teams.

In his first season as a starter on varsity, Old Mill's 119-pound junior Felipe Aleman will tell you there's pressure that comes with wrestling for such a storied, successful program. He quickly adds that it's a fun kind of pressure that provides him with a great challenge. During his freshman year, when he wrestled on junior varsity, the Patriots captured their most recent state title. With the Patriots ranked fifth in the area and boasting a 13-1 record, this could be the year Aleman shares a varsity title.

Talk about learning on the job: South River senior Kelly Chapman - who was born in Alaska and has lived in Hawaii, Kansas and Korea among other places as part of a military family - had never even heard of field hockey until she moved to the area in the eighth grade. So after a two-year introduction on the junior varsity and then her junior season on varsity, Chapman is a team captain this fall and the only returning starter on defense. Chapman has enjoyed the challenge of leading the Seahawks to another promising season, but that's not all she does at South River.
