INDIANAPOLIS -- Michael Phelps on Friday won the race he loves to hate: the brutal, all-four-strokes endurance contest, the 400-meter individual medley at the Grand Prix. Setting a new record for the meet, Phelps powered past Tyler Clary, to finish at 4 minutes 12.51 seconds before an appreciative crowd at the Indiana University Natatorium. The question of the night, though, was whether they had seen the last Phelps 400 IM ever. The Baltimore swimmer has been threatening since the 2008 Olympics that he was done with the event considered the sport's toughest.

Loyola kept its streak alive - although the host McDonogh swimmers made it interesting. The Dons won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship again last night. Loyola has won or shared the title for 17 straight years. The Dons won it 16 times outright and split the championship with Calvert Hall in 1994. They won the crown despite a national record-setting swim by McDonogh's Giles Smith in the 50-yard freestyle. His 19.74-second performance was the best ever for a private-school competitor.

Milford Mill's Mike Mamo and Dulaney's Amanda White each scored victories in yesterday's Baltimore County Cross-Country Championships at Oregon Ridge Park.It was the routes they took to get there that were different.White came into the race as confident as ever, fresh off a meet-record win at Saturday's prestigious Georgetown Prep Classic. Mamo said he began to doubt his abilities after finishing 10th in that same meet."My confidence was kind of low," said Mamo, who got off to a poor start and labored throughout the first half of the race.

That door Michael Phelps keeps slamming on ever again swimming the exhausting 400-meter individual medley race? Apparently, it's a revolving one. After the Baltimore swimmer raced to a record-setting finish in the 400 IM at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Friday night, he said that there was a chance he would add the event to his still secret line-up in the Olympics this summer. "Who knows?" an exuberant Phelps said when asked if this really, really, really was the last time he would swim the race he swore off after the 2008 Olympics, but has since returned to multiple times.

It may be difficult to believe now, but Ellie Gonzalez joined a summer running program prior to her freshman year at Catholic High because "she was a little out of shape," according to Catholic coach Cathy Kearns. A year later, Gonzalez is not only in great shape, she's the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland champion after her record-setting 17:59 shattered the six-year-old meet record set by Bryn Mawr's Chrissy Johnson in 2005 by 31 seconds on the 3.1-mile Oregon Ridge Park course on Wednesday.

The 30th annual Laurel Invitational brought some of the best swimmers from Laurel City, Montpelier, Russett, West Arundel and West Laurel to Fairland Aquatics Center July 10. Since Laurel-based summer recreation teams usually compete in different Prince-Mont Swim League divisions (with the exception of Montpelier and West Arundel, who are both Division C), the Invitational is a chance for swimmers to compete against others from all divisions. Meet records were set by Montpelier's Dylan Buehler, 28.10 in boys 13-14 50-meter fly; Russett's Taylor Hicks, 36.84 in girls 15-18 50-meter breast; and West Arundel's Kellianne Venit, 37.01 in girls 15-18 50-meter breast.

PERFORMER OF THE YEAR Graham Bazell Atholton There was no question that Bazell was the top distance runner in the area after he won the Class 3A state title in cross country and followed with a strong indoor season. But everything started to fall apart for the senior early in the spring season. The Stanford-bound Bazell began to get pain in his legs, and also had to battle fatigue. It took a while, but doctors finally figured out that he had a low potassium level and told him to eat about three bananas daily to get back to normal.

McDonogh's girls finished with 238 points on Saturday at Calvert Hall, beating runner-up Seton Keough (64) by an astonishing 174 points. The second- through seventh-place teams would have to combine their scores to match what the Eagles did by themselves.
