The Century boys are being led by a bit of an unusual combination as they try for a second straight Class 2A state title in track and field. Pole vaulters often concentrate on that one event. Chandler Kennell and Nick Neral are two of the state's top pole vaulters, but they also help the Knights in other ways and were big reasons No. 3 Century led after Thursday's first day of the state meet at Morgan State. Class 3A and 4A have their first day today, with all four classes coming together to finish Saturday.

For the seniors on Marriotts Ridge's girls lacrosse team, putting their third state title in perspective wasn't all that easy. Wednesday's 18-5 Class 3A-2A title victory over Oakdale at UMBC sent the No. 4 Mustangs seniors off with the happy ending they wanted, but it was a split decision whether this championship was better than their first. "Freshman year was the best. Nothing can compare with that feeling," senior defender Alexis Zadjura said of the first girls lacrosse championship in school history.

Edwin Warfield, Maryland's 45th governor, was a Howard County native whose family made its home at the Oakdale estate in Daisy. On Aug. 16, 1902, he presided over an unusual event, the record of which provides a reminder of the county's antebellum past. "A year before he was elected governor, Edwin Warfield invited many of the former slaves of Oakdale back to the estate for a reunion," states Joetta M. Cramm in Howard County, A Pictorial History. A photograph from the collection of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People captures the scene.

If you first don't succeed, try again. And then, if needed, try yet again. The Edmondson boys basketball had the final possession at the end of regulation and again in the first overtime with the score tied against Oakdale, from Frederick County, but the No. 5 Red Storm was unable to convert the needed points that would send it to the Class 2A state title game. In the same spot in the second overtime, Edmondson senior guard Darius Walker changed the plan. Once again appearing to hold the ball for the final shot, Walker attacked the basket earlier than expected, hitting a running layup with 31 seconds left to give the Red Storm a two-point lead.

When he's not on the basketball court, Edmondson senior guard Darius Walker is more laid back than loud. But there was one exception recently when he simply couldn't help himself. It came last Thursday at Randallstown, when he helped lead the No. 5 Red Storm past the host Rams, 73-63, to capture the Class 2A North regional championship. After falling in the regional title game in the past four years, the Red Storm had just advanced to the state semifinals at Comcast Center and it was something to yell about.

OAKDALE, N.Y. -- If Adelphi University compares itself to Harvard in advertising, perhaps Dowling College should consider billing itself as Long Island's answer to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.Beginning Monday, the Oakdale college started using a Suffolk County crossing guard -- normally a protector of younger school children -- to help the college's 5,000 students cross what the college says is a dangerous street during the college's two-week spring registration.Suffolk County police officials say it is the first time a county crossing guard has been requested by a local institution of higher learning.
