Oakland Mills indoor track and field coach Sam Singleton has no idea whether other coaches have something similar to his strategy of training relay runners.But his results are hard to match.Singleton requires runners on the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter relay teams to complete consecutive intervals in practice. For instance, an 800 relay runner may finish eight straight 200 intervals at 90 percent speed, a consistent way to magnify strength and endurance.That formula is a major reason the Scorpions' six relay squads -- three boys, three girls -- are all among the Baltimore area's finest.

LONDON - In a turnaround that left Michael Phelps and his teammates in stunned silence Sunday night, the 400-meter freestyle relay gold medal that the U.S. had in its grasp slipped away in a late surge by the final French swimmer. Ryan Lochte, swimming the anchor leg for the U.S., touched .45 of a second later than Yannick Agnel. The Russian team won bronze, ahead of the Australians, heavily favored going into the race with their self-described "weapons of mass destruction team.

Bob Bowman was done, or so he thought. Something of the Michael Phelps Whisperer to the media, he can be counted on for insights, such as on Tuesday night after the Baltimore swimmer became the most decorated Olympian ever after winning a gold medal as anchor of the 4x200-meter freestyle relay team. Bowman delivered. Often emotionally, sometimes sardonically, he offered wisdom on the eventful night and then took off. But he came back. Oh wait, he said, almost forgetting about his other talking point, Allison Schmitt, gold-medal winner and Olympic record-breaker.

Early yesterday, County Executive Roger B. Hayden kicked off the project by donning a bright orange jumpsuit and spending 45 minutes helping crews pick up recyclables in Relay.

PHILADELPHIA -- When Stephanie Ryall steps onto the track tonight at the 120th Penn Relays, she'll be one of only three Canadian individuals at the event. None of the three have run there before. The Hamilton runner says a calm strategy should help her handle the pressure. "I want to go for a good time" the 11th-grader at Westdale Secondary said earlier this week when asked about her goals. "I'm not really going for place. " "Girls like Tessa Barrett, Hannah DeBalsi ... those girls are much faster than me. " For Ryall, a good time in the 3000m run means 9:45 or faster, which is just over 10 seconds quicker than what she has run at this year's indoor meets.

Julio.In a recent opinion, Judge J. William Hinkel said the County Council acted in bad faith and was negligent when it froze development of the property in 1991 after other agencies had approved it.The purpose of the freeze was to enable the county to buy the land.
