Stevenson's first loss of the season - a 31-10 thumping by Middle Atlantic Conference foe Lycoming on Saturday - dropped the Mustangs out of any mention from the latest American Football Coaches Association Division III poll. But as the program enjoys its upcoming bye week, coach Ed Hottle said there is still much to be optimistic about - including retaining a shot at what would be the school's first league championship in football. “All of our goals and things we want to accomplish are still very much out there for us,” he said Wednesday.

I'm fairly confident.

If Henry H. Miller, chairman of the Baltimore Municipal Gol Corp., has his way (and he usually gets it) golfers would be banned from taking first tee practice swings.What upsets Miller, who repeatedly has been lauded for his success in upgrading golf conditions at the five Baltimore municipal courses, is the fact that golfers are abusive first tee users.It has been pointed out that golfers, full of zest to get their rounds started, use untold numbers of practice swings on the first tees while attempting to loosen their muscles and groove their swings.

But as the No. 3 Mustangs prepare to dip back into Middle Atlantic Conference play with a visit from Albright this Saturday at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills, the head coach is hoping that the team practices and plays with an undercurrent of anger. “I think we need to start playing a little more angrily,” Cantabene said Wednesday. “In my time here, this is one of our nicer teams.

After defeating three Middle Atlantic Conference opponents, Stevenson breaks up its league slate with a non-conference tilt with Roanoke Tuesday night.

Finding a later date proved impossible until Stevenson offered to travel to Salem, Va., and both sides agreed to Tuesday night at Donald J. Kerr Stadium. “We wanted to keep the game,” Mustangs coach Paul Cantabene said Monday.

The mid-Atlantic region is turning into a banking backwater; welcome the financial meccas of the future: Charlotte, N.C., Pittsburgh and Columbus, Ohio.That's the banking world according to Arnold G. Danielson, president of Rockville-based Danielson Associates Inc., a consulting business that released its latest Middle Atlantic Banking Report this week.It's a world in which mergers will continue among regional and super-regional banking companies; smaller banks that avoid being acquired will grow to the point that they become pTC irresistible targets; and only the smallest community banks will remain independent.
