South Carroll coach Pete Olson goes on and on about what a fine wrestler senior Charlie Conaway is from a technical standpoint."Charlie is perpetual motion, nonstop," he said. "If one counter doesn't go, he'll go right into another one and then another if he has to. The fact is, he has a repertoire of moves second to none. If you look around the state and talk about the technicians, Conaway's name is going to come up."Lofty and well-earned praise indeed, but where did Conaway get it?"I guess I just get in a flow.

South Carroll's Leah Onda, a three-time All-County lacrosse player, will attend Johns Hopkins on a full lacrosse scholarship next fall. Onda, who plays midfield and attack, said she thinks she earned the scholarship based more on how she performed at the club level than at the high school level. She had several other colleges interested, including Notre Dame, Duke, Loyola and Dartmouth. "It came down to Notre Dame, Loyola and Hopkins and I just liked everything about Hopkins," she said.
