Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

A Westminster man was killed Saturday, despite efforts to rescue him, when the tree he was helping to trim in Manchester splintered, leaving him suspended about 20 feet aboveground. Sidney Wayne Diehl, 59, of Westminster was helping friends trim the top of a large tree in the 2300 block of Convey Drive about 11:15 a.m. According to the Carroll County sheriff's department, the tree broke apart, causing him to plunge about 10 feet before his safety harness broke his fall. Maj. Phil Kasten, the sheriff's spokesman, said the tree continued to separate as Diehl was hanging about 20 feet in the air. Teams from the Hampstead, Manchester and Pleasant Hill fire companies climbed the tree in an attempt to free him, but he was dead by the time rescuers reached him. Detective Phil Epperson, who is investigating the incident, said Diehl was apparently pinned against the tree.

Baumgardner talked at the end of the state indoor meet about how his team was going to push really hard to win the state title in the spring. The Mavericks were frustrated because Pikesville had rallied to beat them by four points to capture the Class 1A indoor title. The coach was right, as the Mavericks ran well throughout a tough spring and won the Class 1A state title despite losing their top runner, Katie Leisher, to dehydration midway through the championship meet. The team turned in a strong performance to win its first outdoor track state title with 102.5 points.

Manchester Valley's girls lacrosse team couldn't have believed bigger. The No. 8 Mavericks relied on their season motto, "Believe Big," to build a six-goal lead in the first half and hold off a late rally from No. 15 Fallston to win their first state championship, the Class 2A-1A title, 13-10, Tuesday night at UMBC. The last two seasons have been emotional for the Mavericks (18-1) after losing assistant coach Devin Spence in an automobile accident in February 2013 and after coach Shelly Brezicki lost her brother, volunteer fireman Gene Kirchner, three months later from injuries suffered in a fire.
