When the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association merged the A and B Conferences for this fall in boys volleyball, longtime Boys' Latin coach Drew Haugh rejected the idea. Haugh feared his Lakers would be overmatched against the league's elite teams. "We fought having to combine conferences," Haugh said. "We didn't want to do it. We didn't think we could compete with the best on a regular basis. " But deep into the regular season, Haugh changed his tune. Victories over Loyola Blakefield and Gilman in five sets in early October convinced the coach.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  FLORILEGIUM Florilegium  (pronounced flor-uh-LEE-jee-um) is one of those gather-ye-rosebuds words. From the Latin flos , floris , "flower," plus legere , "gather. " It indicates a gathering or collection of brief extracts or writing.  It is thus a fancy word for "anthology," though the emphasis is on short items rather than a bulky compendium.  Example: Garry Wills, who thought Daniel Patrick Moynihan a poseur, says this in an article collected in Lead Time (2004)

The host Boys' Latin football team overcame a slow start, put up three touchdowns and a field goal in the second quarter and stayed in front of St. Vincent Pallotti the rest of the way to win, 43-22, at J. Duncan Smith Field on Saturday. The Lakers (3-1) established field possession early, containing the Panthers (5-2), but were unable to score until William Wingo picked off Mason Clark's pass over the middle for a 10-yard return for a touchdown with 4:52 left in the first quarter.

Boys' Latin lacrosse coach Bob Shriver, who led the Lakers to an undefeated season and the No. 1 national ranking this spring in his 35th season, announced Thursday that he will retire from coaching after the 2015 season. Shriver, a Boys' Latin graduate, cited an increasing workload that includes offseason duties and helping players with college recruitment as the main reason behind his decision to retire. He agreed to stay on another year to facilitate the transition and will continue to teach at Boys' Latin, where he just completed 39 years as an educator.

Marco Jones traveled a long way before settling in at Boys' Latin to become one of the most highly recruited defensive linemen in the area. The senior, who began playing football in California at age 7, moved to Maryland in sixth grade and played at Mount St. Joseph before transferring to Boys' Latin two years ago. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end has orally committed to Virginia, where he plans to study electrical engineering. Known as a strong pass rusher, Jones leads a defense that has allowed just seven points in its first three games.

You couldn't get much more DWEM -- dead white European male -- than Cicero and Shakespeare, the former having departed this vale more than 2,000 years ago, the latter having checked out in 1616.But just as it's a myth that "political correctness" has invaded the college and university curriculum across the nation, so it's not true that the "multiculturalists" and "Afro-centrists" have sent all those DWEMs packing.As for Cicero's disappearance, don't tell Otto R. Begus, a philosophy professor at Morgan State University who voluntarily teaches a course in Latin with strong emphasis on the Roman orator.

The knee-jerk reaction will be to slam Ricky Martin's first Latin album since 1998's Vuelve and since Livin' la Vida Loca, the late-'90s Latin pop crossover sensation, turned him into an across-the-board superstar. And because Almas del Silencio follows 2000's mediocre Sound Loaded, which couldn't match the sales of 1999's 7 million-selling Ricky Martin, the thought will be that he returned to the safety of a genre that would scrutinize him less and welcome him instantly. Part of that is true.

By the looks of the banners for Vivat! St. Petersburg that are showing up around Baltimore, "vivat" is a common Russian word. Yet as any native speaker could tell you, it doesn't even look or sound Russian. In fact, it's Latin, brought to Russia by Peter the Great. The czar's opening of his homeland to the more advanced ways of other European nations in the early 1700s prompted the adaptation of Romance language words into Russia's Cyrillic. "Vivat" comes from the Latin root for "life," or "to live," as evidenced by proverbs like "Fama Semper Vivat" - May his fame last forever.

With new Peruvian joints popping up just about every other week (or so it seems), the flavors of Latin and South America are all the rage. But just because they're trendy doesn't mean the cuisines of Latin countries are new to the Baltimore food scene. Tucked into an unremarkable strip mall in Woodlawn, Salsa Grill has been quietly and successfully cranking out quality Latin American food for more than two decades. Scene & Decor From the outside, Salsa Grill looks just like one more storefront in an average shopping center.

The past 10 months have been a long wait for Johns Hopkins , which lost 29-24 to Wesley in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs on Nov. 23. Brandon Cherry said every member of the Blue Jays has been chomping at the bit for the start of the upcoming 2014 season, which kicks off on Saturday at noon with a home game against Randolph Macon at Homewood Field. “Everybody's just excited to get back on the field,” the junior running back said. “It's been a while since our last loss to Wesley, and we're putting that behind us. We're coming in with the fresh mind that it's a new season and we're ready to get back in it.” The new season means a featured tailback role for the Parkville resident and Boys' Latin graduate.

Like so many others, I have been closely following the refugee crisis at the southern border. But instead of welcoming these poor children, who are desperate for help, many people refuse to recognize their humanity. For example, the Carroll County Board of Commissioners and Rep. Andy Harris protested the possibility that of some of the child refugees would be housed in Westminster ( "U.S. dismisses Carroll Co. as shelter site," July 13). I immediately thought of the Jewish refugees on the S.S. St. Louis who were turned away from the United States, as many of them died in concentration camps.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Cuban President Fidel Castro left here yesterday, no longer the Western Hemisphere's most awkward guest.The 65-year-old comandante of socialist purity had been polishing his reputation as a humorless curmudgeon, telling a summit of Latin presidents that they would not persuade him to alter his hard-line Marxist views -- views that even many Soviets now find appalling.At least four leaders and a king had failed to dent Mr. Castro's stoicism during most of the two-day summit of 19 Latin countries and their former colonial masters, Spain and Portugal.
