The rain outside last week forced the Mervo football squads - varsity and JV, all of the nearly 100 players - into the hallway of the school gym, bringing all their teen spirit and the resulting noise with them. It would be enough to drive most coaches to utter distraction, but Mustangs coach John Blake remained true to form, placid and calm, taking it all in stride. Besides, it wouldn't have done Blake any good to complain about all those noisy kids clamoring around. The situation is all of his making.

Western High's girls won their seventh straight Baltimore indoor championship at the 5th Regiment Armory yesterday, and Mervo, having lost last winter, won its sixth city boys title.All Western did, while piling up 195 points, was quadruple the score of its nearest competitor, winning all but one of the 11 events.Western took the title for the seventh time, the same number of times the title has been up for grabs.Mervo was nearly as impressive on the boys' side, gaining revenge for losing to City College last year, the only time it hasn't come out on top in the meet's history.

A couple days before his team had to face Mervo in the Tip-Off Mixer last month, Lake Clifton coach Charlie Moore said facing Woody Williams, one of his longtime mentors, was like facing "a mirror image."And for the first 15 minutes of their initial meeting of the season, Williams and his Mustangs gave Moore reason for concern, before the Lakers gained control in the second period and cruised to a 90-51 victory.Heading into yesterday's Baltimore City 4A League opener at Mervo, Moore again had reason to worry, because the Mustangs had upset then-No.

Despite his team's limited success this past winter, Mervo coach Freddie Hendricks always maintained that the Mustangs' inaugural season of indoor track would pay big dividends down the road.Yesterday, he found out just how big.Facing a talented 13-team field at the 20th Gilman Invitational Relays, Mervo took first place in eight events, setting two meet records en route to a 15-point win."I can see there's a big difference [from last year]," said Hendricks, whose team won its second straight meet title.
