Liberty's 4-1 victory over Francis Scott Key's boys tennis team was nothing out of the ordinary, but the visiting Lions 4-1 girls win may have raised more than a few eyebrows.Both Liberty teams swept their singles matches over Key and took two out of three each in doubles -- dropping Key's girls mark to 5-3 overall and leaving the boys winless at 0-8."I figured that we would pull this match out with our doubles, but we just didn't play that well today," said Eagles coach Donna Baker. The Key girls (5-0 in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League, 0-3 in county play)

A year ago, the Liberty boys lacrosse team got a taste of the big time by advancing to its first Class 2A-1A state title game. This season, the senior-laden Lions are preparing for a second helping. Led by senior Matt Latham, Liberty has been a force, scoring an average of 15 goals. "I knew that with so many seniors returning we would be pretty good, but some guys have really stepped up their level of play," coach Andy Cunningham said. While Latham has established himself as the county's top offensive threat, with 35 goals and 19 assists through Monday, several teammates also have surged offensively, including attackman Cody Henn (26 goals, 16 assists)

Liberty senior Jason Moczulski was an outside midfielder on last year's Class 2A state championship team, scoring four goals and assisting on eight. Coach Ed DeVincent called Moczulski "an engine," going all out every time he is on the field. Moczulski leads this year's 8-3-1 team with six assists. He also has two goals. What's the strangest goal you've ever seen while playing for Liberty? It would have to be last year when [teammate] Billy Lee kicked a free kick in one of the playoff games -- I believe it was against Rockville.

South Carroll has won all seven titles, with Westminster its chief contender.The Lions have been something of an afterthought.But they had played well enough this season to gain a one-game, winner-take-all duel with the Cavaliers last Friday at South Carroll.

LANDOVER -- An initial onset of disappointment eventually gave way to a reason to smile for the Liberty boys indoor track and field team. The No. 6 Lions, tied with Forestville with just one event left, could not keep pace with the Knights in the 1,600-meter relay and fell short in their bid to capture the school's first Class 2A-1A state championship at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex yesterday. Liberty compiled 48 points, while Forestville from Prince George's County recorded 58 to claim the program's first state title.

As unusual as it sounds, Trisha Repsher was not looking for a repeat of last year's runner-up effort at the Run from the Lion's Den Invitational yesterday. That's because Repsher let first place slip from her grasp last season when she took a wrong turn on the 3.1-mile course at Liberty in Eldersburg and ended up finishing second. This time, the Westminster junior stayed on the right path and captured the individual title in a course-record time of 19 minutes, 14 seconds. Repsher's performance powered the Owls past No. 8 Winters Mill and No. 10 Mount Hebron to the team crown.

The Liberty boys soccer team came close again last season, and that has made this group of Lions even hungrier. For the second time in three years, Liberty earned a trip to the state final four only to lose in the semifinals. Seeking a happier ending this season, the players have been working overtime. Several of them got together on a regular basis throughout the summer to lift weights and run in an effort to get into the best shape possible. The Lions knew that they had the core of another solid team, and they wanted to be ready right away.

He didn't pout or complain about calls after his team's 16-6 loss to Parkside in Wednesday's Class 2A-1A boys lacrosse state title game. Instead, Liberty coach Andy Cunningham chose to view the Lions' first-ever trip to the state finals as a starting point for his junior-dominated team. "I think it's a big step for the program," said Cunningham, who took over the team this spring after Liberty got knocked out in the semifinals each of the past two years. "We'll take this and build from it. Hopefully, it won't take three times to get back."

The daunting inclines and steep declines at Hereford had nothing on the roller-coaster ride of emotions some area teams and individuals went through yesterday at the state championships. North Carroll junior Amy Watson got things started when she won the Class 3A girls state crown after the pre-race favorite, C. Milton Wright junior Allison Barnes, passed out 200 meters from the finish line. Barnes' collapse, as well as one by junior Danielle Burcham, had the No. 1 Mustangs initially thinking they had missed out on a state title for the second straight year.

For most coaches, going 5-41 over their first two seasons would be adequate reason to quit ... that is if they still had a job. For Liberty coach Steve Johnson, however, extraordinary patience has proven to be the wisest career move of all. With Carroll County lacking a dominant team for the first time in years, Johnson's senior-laden Lions are off to a 4-0 start in county play, and are eyeing their first county title since 1983 - before any of their...
