Carver A&T coach Ralph Olson started the year with a simple goal for his volleyball team. He wanted seven wins. He had to revise his goals upward twice during the year, but it was the 14th win that eluded the Wildcats. That would have been a state championship. The Wildcats (13-6) battled hard, but came up short of Olson's latest goal, bowing to Allegany County's Fort Hill 25-12, 25-23, 25-12 in the Class 1A state volleyball championship game at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

COLLEGE PARK -- Southside's Tamara Trusty was thinking about just one thing after last night's state Class 1A volleyball semifinal at Ritchie Coliseum: "I want to come back here again." In their first trip to the state semifinals, the Jaguars were overmatched by Poolesville, which pounded out a 25-10, 25-11, 25-18 victory behind power-hitting Inge Rasmussen (14 kills) and Jessica Chittenden (seven kills). The Jaguars (10-7) struggled through the first 2 1/2 games before putting up a fight late in the third.

COLLEGE PARK -- Reservoir coach Carole Ferrante has had a sign in her office all season asking her volleyball players where they want to be on Nov. 17. Fortunately for her Gators, they'll be right where she wants them to be. Top-ranked Reservoir (19-0) used a dominating passing game and a height advantage to defeat No. 10 Towson (14-5), 25-11, 25-22, 25-19, in the Class 3A state semifinals at Ritchie Coliseum at the University of Maryland. Reservoir got a break off the court when the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association decided to flip-flop the Class 4A title game with the 3A final, allowing the Gators to play Saturday at 7:30 p.m. instead of 2:30 p.m. Reservoir setter Tiffany Jacobson (16 assists)

COLLEGE PARK - Broadneck's volleyball team has experienced the gamut of emotions at the state tournament over the past few years, so the No. 3 Bruins know exactly what they want this time around. "We know what it's like to win states and we know what it's like to lose," said Bruins junior setter Stephanie Carey, "and we want to win." Last night, the Bruins got a taste of that winning feeling, outlasting Thomas Johnson, 25-20, 24-26, 25-16, 25-23, in a state Class 4A semifinal at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

Bel Air brought a high-powered offense and a ton of confidence to Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum for the state Class 3A volleyball semifinals Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, the results were no different from last year's, when their state championship dream ended in the same round. The Bobcats (15-3) ran into an organized, experienced and well-prepared team from La Plata (17-0) in Charles County and fell, 25-16, 25-20, 25-15. The Warriors did a great job of neutralizing Bel Air's Celeste Roland (nine kills)

- The No. 11 Hereford girls volleyball team looked defeated, already trailing Patuxent 22-9 in the first set of Monday's Class 2A state volleyball semifinals. The Baltimore County squad rallied, shaking off its passivity and rattling off an 11-point run. But it would only be a temporary relief. Hereford battled for the first set, stole the second, but ultimately fell in the third and fourth frames to lose 22-25, 25-21, 18-25, 26-28 at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

If you are a Baltimore-area high school volleyball fan, the state championship tournament in College Park used to be a welcome place for you to go. You'd see some great volleyball, and you'd see a few Baltimore-area teams bring home some trophies. If you went to the 2008 state finals, you would have seen three area teams bring home state titles (Broadneck in 4A, Centennial in 3A, Liberty in 2A) and another local team, Glenelg, lose to Poolesville in the Class 1A final. Well, its 2012, and things have indeed changed.

Many area volleyball fans thought Friday's match between Centennial and North Hagerstown would be a dream to watch. It turned out to be a nightmare for the No. 2 Eagles.

Peyton Wallech led the Hubs with 21 kills, while Trisha Mockapetris led Centennial with 15 kills.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul stormed through the University of Maryland on Wednesday, delivering his trademark libertarian message of noninterventionism and hands-off government to a wildly enthusiastic crowd of students who chanted his name. Paul told the 1,780 students who packed Ritchie Coliseum on the College Park campus that the government should get out of Afghanistan, repeal the Patriot Act, legalize marijuana and end the Selective Service system — ideas that repeatedly brought the students to their feet.

Transforming the magic of a studio recording into a live performance can often be a musician's toughest task.In the studio there are a million ways -- although not always an unlimited amount of time -- to hone the sound of a piece of music. But once on stage there are no second chances. What you play is exactly what the audience hears.Last night's Living Colour concert at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum in College Park was a prime example of a live concert that didn't live up to expectations.

But after winning the match 22-25, 30-28, 25-12, 21-25, 15-2, the Hawks (18-1) sure looked like they had been there before. They'll go for their first state championship Saturday at 7:30 p.m. against North Hagerstown, a 3-1 winner over Towson in the other semifinal. “We were down to one game from not being there on Saturday,” coach Lynn Paynter said.
