While the host Loch Raven boys lacrosse team was working on a regional quarterfinal shutout, J.B. Cadorette was busy setting one school record and chasing another. In the Raiders' 22-0 rout of Randallstown on Saturday, Cadorette scored a game-high 10 goals, the most scored in a single game and one goal short of tying the single-season record of 50 set by his cousin Eric Friant in 2006. Teammate Wes Dingman totaled 13 points on four goals and nine assists to set the single-game record for most points and assists.

A Baltimore County historical commission delayed a decision Thursday that would push forward a Baltimore County public school plan to renovate and reuse Loch Raven Elementary School. More than a dozen community members attended the commission's meeting and voiced opposition to the school system's plan, saying the building's current use as a community center fits the neighborhood's needs. Architects for the school system argued that their $35 million plan - which would demolish all of a 1970 portion and part of a 1949 addition to the 1947 building - would return the school to its original use and allow it to continue to serve as a focal point for the Loch Raven Village neighborhood.

To help mark the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, tree plantings are scheduled this weekend, and also in November, in the Loch Raven and Prettyboy watersheds. Both the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy and the Prettyboy Watershed Alliance will each host plantings on Saturday, Oct. 20, and the Prettyboy group will also conduct a planting on Saturday, Nov. 10.  The new trees are intended to help protect both the Loch Raven and Prettyboy reservoirs from runoff, and will also absorb pollutants that would otherwise enter the water supply. Together, the two reservoirs provide drinking water to 1.8 million people in the region every day. The Prettyboy Watershed Alliance received two grants from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, totaling $5,666, which will be used to plant 500 trees.

To say that No. 4 Loch Raven sweated out a 15-11, 9-15, 15-12, 15-7 victory over No. 7 Catonsville in the season opener for both teams certainly would be truthful.In more ways than one.Loch Raven first needed to overcome the stifling heat in the Catonsville gymnasium yesterday.

Timonium resident and poet Ann Kolakowski says that what she discovered when her grandmother turned 99 has haunted her to this day. Now, nearly 12 years later, she has published a book of poetry about that discovery. "When my brothers and I were clearing out our grandmother's home when she moved to an assisted living facility," said Kolakowski, "I found a shabby notebook. I opened it and read, 'Marian Brown, Domestic Science/Warren School, Maryland.' I was really confused. " In fact, the town in which her grandmother, Florence Marian Brown Eichler, had spent her childhood and attended Warren School had been bought, razed and flooded in 1921 to create a municipal water supply.

Ever wonder which room in the house has the most dust?  Anthony Zverev  did. So he used dust distribution as the subject of his recent STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project. Triggered on by his own bout of sneezing and coughing in the fall, the Villa Cresta Elementary School fourth-grader was driven to research dust mites and dust allergens. He then made the hypothesis the living room would have the greatest concentration of dust and outside would have the lowest.
