Dundalk amateur heavyweight Mike Dietrich admits his air of invincibility has taken a few hits lately, and he has not looked like the devastating finisher he started out to be. But in the past few months, the 17-year-old Patapsco High School senior has improved his training regimen to complement his natural abilities. He even sparred with former World Boxing Union heavyweight champ Hasim Rahman of Bel Air, a world-rated professional who whacked Dietrich around for a couple of rounds. Dietrich has changed his diet, excluding fast foods.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Blast, nursing a two-game losing streak, dialed a local number to get a key win in a road game. The call came at the right time for Josh Campbell, the Patapsco High product who made his first career start and recorded 14 saves in the Blast's 15-6 victory over the Buffalo Blizzard yesterday afternoon. "They planned from the beginning to get my first start on the road, and it worked out well," said Campbell, whose only other NPSL action came late in the season opener against Kansas City.

Sean McComb was sitting Wednesday morning on one of the worn wooden benches at Baltimore's Penn Station reading a book on how to improve teaching when his phone began to buzz wildly with text messages and email notifications. The word was out: McComb had been named one of four finalists for 2014 National Teacher of the Year, and everyone wanted to text, tweet and email him about it. McComb, 30, who teaches at Patapsco High School & Center for the Arts in Dundalk, would normally have been teaching that morning, but instead he was on his way to Washington at the invitation of first lady Michelle Obama to take part in a discussion about how to improve access to higher education for the types of disadvantaged students he teaches.

In the evenings, the girls' muscles knot, and they resort to menthol balms to relax. Nevertheless, they sleep soundly, knowing that tomorrow they will dance again. That's the life 15 students from Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts are living this week as part of a five-day workshop taught by choreographer Peter Pucci - a native Baltimorean who performs around the globe. The students - members of the school's magnet dance program - were eager to work with a professional who could teach them cutting-edge choreography they couldn't get at a neighborhood dance studio.

Fifteen students in matching, light-green T-shirts and camouflage hats huddled at the base of "The Wall," brainstorming ways to scale it. The 12-foot barrier was the last of several obstacles the junior ROTC cadets had to complete yesterday, and they weren't going to get past it unless they worked together. The obstacle course is just one of the challenges for 30 Baltimore County students who are camping this week at a Boy Scout reservation just south of the Mason-Dixon line. The camp is designed to strengthen leadership and teamwork skills for the cadets, who are from Lansdowne High School and Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts.

The 16-year-old walks the halls of Patapsco High School every day wearing his "uniform" -- a black nylon bomber jacket, chocolate-colored;jeans and a T-shirt. On his feet are a pair of black, 14-eyelet "Doc" Martens combat boots.But he can't wear the white shoelaces he favors these days. They've been banned at the eastern Baltimore County school.In this corner of the world, shoelaces are more than a fashion statement. For many students, they're symbols of white power -- messengers of racial intolerance and hatred.

Patapsco High School & Center for the Arts educator Sean McComb fondly recalls a high school English teacher who led him to see the world differently through books and a mentor from the student-run cable station who helped him host his own weekly sports show. On Monday, McComb, 29, was honored as Baltimore County's 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year for, among other things, being an example of one who inspires and supports his students. "The teachers that I had in 10th, 11th, 12th grade were the models, and what they did for me made me believe it was possible to do that for other people," said McComb, a Joppa resident who is an English teacher and coordinates a college-prep program, AVID.

Data do justify new high school The Sun's article "The next big thing: smaller schools" (June 22) notes that five Baltimore County high schools - including Towson, Hereford, Loch Raven, Perry Hall and Patapsco high schools - have an enrollment about 10 percent above the schools' state-rated capacity. The county executive's office contends that that is not enough to warrant building a new school. However, the Loch Raven High School Web site says the current enrollment is 1,201, 226 students (or more than 23 percent)

The 11 newest cadets in Patapsco High School's U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps have their reasons for enrolling. Some said they want discipline, and a few said they have friends in the program or need a way to stay busy. Others have military aspirations. One girl added that she likes the uniform. Even more students could get the chance to sign up next fall. Given the level of interest among local middle and elementary school children, school officials want to hire another retired military officer to expand Patapsco's JROTC program from about 105 to 160 students.

A teary-eyed Danny Barcikowski pointed to the black armband on his right biceps with the number 18, the jersey of Adam Parr, whose name was chanted back at him by the crowd. The Sparrows Point midfielder then hugged Gail and Lenny Parr, parents of the teammate whose death in an Oct. 1 car accident inspired the unranked Pointers to last night's stunning 3-0 Baltimore County championship win over sixth-ranked rival Patapsco before 1,500 at CCBC-Dundalk. "We dedicated this season to Adam Parr," said senior striker Kenny Dotter, whose 23rd and 24th goals of the year followed one by sophomore Kevin Crowley after a scoreless first half.
