Oakland Mills is typically the county's most-watched wrestling team. When you win 13 of 16 county tournaments, eyes tend to be on you. This season, the Scorpions will attract added attention with the return of coach Steve Carnahan. After a 14-year run that saw Oakland Mills win 11 county titles, Carnahan stepped down four years ago, when Dan Ricker took over. After Ricker was fired last spring following four successful seasons, Carnahan replaced him. The second time around for Carnahan begins with a tough challenge.

Even after his three-year tenure as assistant principal at Oakland Mills High School ended in 1999, Frank Eastham never really left. After all, Eastham lives a few blocks from the Columbia school. And he continued to wear clothes displaying Oakland Mills pride. "You could leave Oakland Mills [High School] but you can't take Oakland Mills out of someone," said Eastham, who calls the school his home. "I would frequently catch flak from some of my other administrators because I continued to wear Oakland Mills spirit wear when I was out and about in the community."

So many losses. So many mistakes. So much frustration. A seemingly endless stream of heartache and hard times for Oakland Mills' baseball team came to a jubilant end yesterday on its home field in Columbia. After 61 straight losses, the Scorpions finally won a game, beating Centennial, 5-4. The Scorpions also had lost 86 of their previous 87 games. Their last victory came against Atholton on March 30, 2000. Danny Oleynik, yesterday's winning pitcher who hit the game-winning home run in the third inning, was the only player on this year's team to play in that 2000 victory.

They screamed. They hollered. After 30 consecutive losses, Howard's girls tennis team won its first match in two seasons with a 4-1 victory Thursday over visiting Oakland Mills. "They were so excited about winning," said Howard coach Kevin Hendon, who will treat the team to pizza after Tuesday's practice. Since Howard County switched its tennis format last season to separate boys and girls matches, every team except Howard's girls had won. The Lions had come close this season, losing four times by 3-2 margins.

"We played great team defense. I thought it was phenomenal in the first half," said Mount Hebron coach Scott Robinson, whose fourth-ranked team led the seventh-ranked Scorpions, 31-13, at the break.

River Hill sophomore point guard Fana Walcott said her team came into yesterday's game at Oakland Mills wanting to play good defense. Mission accomplished. The top-ranked Hawks held seventh-ranked Oakland Mills to two free throws in the second quarter and took a 19-point halftime lead en route to a 72-45 Howard County league victory. "I thought we played pretty well. We did a good job defensively," said River Hill coach Teresa Waters. The Hawks' pressure defense created a number of turnovers that led to easy baskets.

Junior quarterback Joe Peeler fired five touchdown passes, all to junior receivers, and completed 12 of 23 passes for 262 yards as No. 4 Mount St. Joseph amassed 453 yards of total offense in routing No. 5 Oakland Mills, 34-7, yesterday at John M. Plevyak Field in Irvington. It was the host Gaels' second straight win, and it spoiled the season opener for Oakland Mills of Howard County. With the Gaels piling up 81 points in their first two games, future opponents must be wondering how good the Mount St. Joe offense can be with the expected return of junior running back Isaac Kufuor on Friday when the Gaels play at No. 11 McDonogh.

In a season that will be dominated by impact players who are being recruited by Division I colleges in unprecedented numbers, junior Fardan Carter of Oakland Mills may make the most important impact.Every time his basketball skills help the Scorpions to victory he'll be sending a message that performance in the classroom is more important than performance on the court.He learned that the hard way last season. Even though he was eligible under school guidelines, his mother pulled him off the team in early February last season -- right in the middle of a heated championship race -- because his grades had fallen.
