Pete Hughes earned his second state title in 32 years of coaching when Long Reach edged Centennial by six points for the Class 3A championship. He also guided the Hammond girls to a title in 1993, but Hughes really took pride in how hard the Lightning worked this winter. This was the team's first state title in indoor track. Long Reach really came on late, winning the Howard County and region titles before getting past Centennial for the state crown. "The key this year was senior leadership," Hughes said.

With a playoff berth and a Howard County title on the line last night, coach Pete Hughes was keeping the offense conservative for seventh-ranked Long Reach, and host Mount Hebron was staying in the game. The Vikings (5-5) drew within 14-12 in the second quarter when tailback Chris Eccleston caught a deflected pass and raced 69 yards for a touchdown. Long Reach fumbled the ensuing kickoff, but its defense stiffened and the Lightning took control after that for a 34-12 victory over the Vikings.

Host Long Reach scored a late touchdown and made a two-point conversion, then held on to beat rival River Hill yesterday, 15-14. The Hawks went from their 25 to the Long Reach 14 on two long pass plays by junior quarterback Dan Hostetler (8-for-12, 145 yards) with five seconds remaining. Long Reach watched as a 31-yard field-goal attempt by Chris Martello was long enough, but just to the left with time running out. With what coach Pete Hughes called "the biggest win in Long Reach history," the No. 10 Lightning broke a three-game losing streak to No. 9 River Hill and took a half-game Howard County League lead over the Hawks.
