The University of Maryland University College announced Friday that it would lay off 70 employees — the latest problem to hit the school that caters to nontraditional students, including members of the military, the federal government and working adults. The layoffs, which began earlier this week, come as declining enrollments have triggered a loss of revenue. They will affect staff "across the board" in departments at the Adelphi and Largo campuses but not faculty members, UMUC spokesman Bob Ludwig said.

The hole Largo dug in its Class 2A South regional semifinal game at Glenelg on Wednesday night was just too deep to climb out of. There would be no come-from-behind victory like the one the Lions enjoyed against Oakland Mills on Monday night, as the No. 6 Gladiators cruised to a 75-45 victory. Glenelg will host Calvert in the regional final Friday at 7 p.m. The Gladiators focused on setting the tone in the first few minutes of Wednesday's semifial, pushing the ball on offense or kicking it out for a 3-point attempt, all the while playing smothering defense.
