COLLEGE PARK -- In recent years, the Maryland women's lacrosse team has made a habit of racking up lopsided wins. This season, the Terrapins also have learned how to pull out the close ones. For the fourth straight game, the No. 2 Terps went down to the final minutes Sunday against an opponent, surviving five ties before pulling away from No. 18 Virginia with five straight goals down the stretch in a 13-8 win in the final Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season matchup between the teams.

The farmers, ranging in ages from 23 to the mid-50s, are students in a program called Lead Maryland that is designed to develop the state's agriculture and rural community leaders of the future. Emily Wilson, a government affairs coordinator for the University of Maryland's Baltimore campus, chaired the committee that arranged the one-week trip.

COLLEGE PARK -- A Maryland team that had spent part of the past month losing close games to nationally ranked teams returned to its bench Sunday at Comcast Center, teetering toward another frustrating defeat. There was confusion about the way the Terps had played in the final minute of regulation, which ended with No. 5 Virginia forcing overtime on a lob jumper off an inbounds play with less than a second remaining. There was anger, pent up from other close losses in Atlantic Coast Conference play to then-No.

COLLEGE PARK - The one constant in Mark Turgeon's steady climb up the coaching ladder was building the type of reputation that most in his profession covet. It is summed up by two simple letters that for decades have described some of basketball's top minds: X's and O's. Trying to attract what once were called blue-chip prospects to programs that were off the radar because of location, league affiliation or fan interest was often difficult, making it crucial for Turgeon to outcoach his counterparts.

Carolyn Quattrocki may not be well known to most Marylanders, but she is a longtime Annapolis insider. So it's not surprising that the former special assistant to then-Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. and former deputy legislative officer under Gov. Martin O'Malley was chosen by the governor to lead the state's health reform efforts. As executive director of the Governor's Office of Health Care Reform, Quattrocki is overseeing the state's health reform efforts. Consumers can begin buying insurance on an exchange in October in time for the rollout of reform in January.

COLLEGE PARK -- Coach Joe Krivak believes the tale is instructive, that it provides an insight into the character of the quarterback who will lead Maryland's football team this season.In 1989, when Jim Sandwisch was still a walk-on in his third season with the Terps, he was the holder for extra points and field goals and the backup punter. Because he had an accounting class at 4:30 p.m., he made a habit of coming early to practice at 3:15 to hold for the kickers for 15 minutes, then showered, dressed and went to class.

Someday, Mark Turgeon insists, Maryland will become a formidable road team. To the second-year Terps coach, away games represent a vast, uncharted frontier that Maryland must conquer if it is going to be good. Wednesday night, Maryland allowed Georgia Tech to shoot 51 percent as the Terps dropped another road game, 78-68. They're 2-6 in opponents' arenas this season after going 1-8 last year. The result means its fans can still count Maryland's Atlantic Coast Conference road victories this season not only on one hand -- but on one finger.

In the aftermath of Saturday's 12-10 upset of the top-ranked Loyola men's lacrosse team, No. 3 Maryland declined the opportunity to gloat. One might think that the Terps exacted a small measure of revenge for last year's loss in the national title game by taking care of the Greyhounds before an announced 5,781, the third-largest crowd at Ridley Athletic Complex. But several players didn't budge from the party line that nothing will fully redeem Terps' 9-3 loss to Loyola in last year's NCAA final.
