At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me.

According to coach Ed Hottle, Stevenson's best start in school history has been a long time coming. It's also a product of inspired play by the defense. Through four games, no opponent has scored more than 19 points in a single game against the Mustangs, who are tied for 12th in Division III in points allowed (9.8), rank 18th in yards surrendered (247.8), are tied for fourth in interceptions (nine) and eighth in takeaways (12). So how does a defense that in 2013 allowed 24.2 points and 370.2 yards per game and collected 11 interceptions among their 17 takeaways improve so dramatically?

When Mount de Sales volleyball coach Kenny Mills saw his team ranked No. 2 in preseason, he was pleased but surprised. "I expected we might be ranked in the top 10, but I was not expecting No. 2," he said. "Instead of looking at it as pressure, we look at it as something we have to live up to." The players were just as surprised. "When they heard about it, they were shocked," Mills said. "The seniors, they're up for the challenge." The Sailors were 3-0 after defeating No. 6 Archbishop Spalding last night in four sets and primed for a run at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title.

Carroll government spent more per resident on administration than all but three other Maryland jurisdictions in fiscal 1991, according to a recently released financial report.The county spent $172 per resident on "general government" -- such offices as planning, personnel, finance, executive and judicial -- exceeding the state average of $133 and trailing only Calvert and Howard counties and Baltimore, according to "Local Government Finances In Maryland.""I would imagine high salaries at the top levels have something to do with it, and probably overall staffing," said County Commissioner Elmer C.

The suspension of a Baltimore City police officer this week after a videotape surfaced showing him violently assaulting a citizen in June appears to confirm what has become a depressing pattern: A brutal attack that should have merited a swift response from authorities was instead met with a passive indifference - inaction that could easily be interpreted as an attempt to cover up the brutality of the crime. Sound familiar? It should, given the furor over the publication recently of a video showing the Ravens' Ray Rice knocking his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, unconscious in at Atlantic City casino hotel elevator in February.

This season was supposed to be a down year for the Arundel volleyball team. If that's the case, they sure picked the right time to find an up. The No. 12 Wildcats (1-0) stormed to a two-set lead over top-ranked St. Paul's (1-1) and then rallied in the fifth set to defeat the Gators, 25-16, 25-19, 21-25, 16-25, 15-10 in a nonleague match. "I think we're better than we thought we were," Arundel coach Ashley Yuscavage said. "I was telling [senior setter] Emily [Durocher] that I needed someone to step up and surprise me.
