For many people, kickball is little more than a child's game, a backyard sport played for about as long as it takes to reach adolescence. If you were to ask one of those individuals to play now, they might give a look of amusement before politely declining in favor of more mature activities. But dedicated kickball players would say that's just because they haven't tried it. "I would invite them to actually join us, check out a highlight video on thisiskickball.com, and just give it a try," said Matt Kemph, a player and founder of The Circuit.

Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15.

Maryland made it official today, confirming that seven athletic teams will be discontinued. Men's outdoor track and field will remain, although the sport will need to reach financial benchmarks down the road in order to remain viable. The eliminated sports are: men's tennis; men's indoor track and field and cross country; men's and women's swimming and diving; women's water polo; and women's acrobatics and tumbling. Some reflections: ** I can't help but think of how members of the Maryland men's and women's track and field teams sat in a semicircle between the starting line and high-jump pit on a November day and were told by athletic director Kevin Anderson that the men's program was being recommended for elimination.

For the second time in three years, no Maryland school was among the 68 selected for the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Highlights from 2012-2013 included: Loyola winning 20 games for the second straight season, Towson staging a historic turnaround from 1-31 to 18-13 and tied for second in the Colonial Athletic Association and Mount St. Mary's going to the final of the Northeast Conference tournament under a first-year coach.

This year, the Crab Pot hockey tournament is truly a Chesapeake Bay affair — all four teams are from Maryland. The men's collegiate tournament — in its 35th year — is hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy and was intended to be a face-off among state teams, but has frequently been won over the years by schools from Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Only in the past few seasons has the two-day event become Maryland-focused, bringing a new level of pride to the winners of the trophy, an enameled crab pot mounted on a tiered base.
