Chespapeake-Anne Arundel's Megan Hyson was one pitch away from a perfect game in Tuesday's Class 4A state semifinals when Montgomery Blair's Emily Haislip drew a walk. Hyson briefly walked off the mound, collected herself and struck out the next batter, earning a no-hitter in the top-ranked Cougars' 8-0 victory. Hyson also went 4-for-4 with a home run, setting up a showdown against undefeated Urbana in Saturday's state championship at Maryland. "It was close, that's all you can ask for. A no-hitter was good enough," said Hyson, who will play at Georgetown next season.

YALE STENZLER was stunned when he heard the figure -- $63 million for a proposed high school in western Anne Arundel. Dr. Stenzler had never heard a number approaching this amount for a high school -- not in Maryland, where he serves as executive director of the state's public school construction program. Perhaps the costliest school ever built in Maryland, he said, is Montgomery Blair High, the college campus-like complex in Silver Spring that carried a $43 million price tag. Anne Arundel's new school would dwarf Montgomery Blair's cost, so county officials had better refigure their math.
