As then-17-year-old Sarah Melanson crossed the finish line of the ChesapeakeMan Ultra Championship early this fall, she couldn't believe what she had just endured. She had swum 2.4 miles through jellyfish-infested waters, had biked 112 miles while battling near-record winds and then, to cap off a 15-hour effort, had run 26.2 miles for a full marathon. "I was like, 'Are you sure I did that?'" Melanson said. "It was completely surreal. I couldn't even believe I had just done it. " Her disbelief was shared by the family members who gathered to watch her finish, long after darkness set on the dimly lit course in Cambridge in Dorchester County.

Severna Park coach Lil Shelton asked her No. 2 Falcons whether they liked the feeling they had after losing to unranked rival Severn on Monday. The answer was clear Wednesday night as the Falcons scrambled to a 3-2 overtime victory over No. 6 South River. "It was the worst feeling, losing the Severn game, " said senior forward Hannah Balleza, whose stick struck the final ball in tandem with teammate Jaclyn Anspach's. Anspach was credited with the winning goal. "We did it together," Anspach said of the game-winner, which came on a corner and went into the net off a defender's stick.

Ted Melanson, The forceful nature of the faceoff is best described by those for whom it has become a routine. "It's you, another person and the ball. And for a split second, you're using every bit of energy and giving everything you've got," said Loyola's Ted Melanson. "And if you win [the faceoff], you've got to deal with the long poles coming on and whacking on you as you go running down the field in transition. "Then, win or lose, you've got to believe in yourself enough that you can go back and do it all over again.

On a perfect corner pass from teammate Caroline Hollerbach, Eshleman nailed her shot into the lower right corner to give the Bruins a 2-1 victory over the Seahawks in an Anne Arundel County match. "We worked so hard the entire game. I just knew I wanted to end the game right there and then, and so I just hit it as hard as I could," Eshleman said.

Urbana has won four state football titles in the past six years, a fact that's not lost on Loyola's Brady Smith, a Carroll County resident. "Urbana plays in the same conference as the Westminster and South Carroll kids Brady played with in recreation leagues," Jim Smith said of his son, who lives in Finksburg. "Brady's always hearing how great Urbana is. It's a motivator for him." And that made yesterday's 24-6 win all the more sweet for Smith, a junior who hurt Urbana (2-1) - ranked 13th in the state by the Associated Press - for the second straight year.
