Digital Harbor coach Patrick McDonald told his players prior to Saturday night's game against Riverdale Baptist that they would likely not run into a more difficult opponent the rest of the season. The Lady Crusaders are ranked in the top five in several national polls and have five players who have been offered Division I scholarships. And their size and quickness were simply too much for the No. 3 Rams to overcome in a 74-33 Riverdale Baptist victory at the Beast of the East showcase Saturday night at St. Frances.

Columbia's Matt McPhearson was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks with the No. 120 overall pick in baseball's amateur draft Friday. The Riverdale Baptist senior plans to sign with the organization. “[I'm] happy, excited, thankful,” McPhearson said when reached by phone after the selection. “It'll open up the door for me. I'm going to be an Arizona Diamondback. I'm going to work and show them why I deserve to be at the top.” The center fielder was high on many scouts' lists due to his exceptional speed - McPhearson can reach first base in less than four seconds and ran the 60-yard dash in 6.22 seconds.

The Digital Harbor girls found two major problems in Saturday's game against Riverdale Baptist: They couldn't get to the basket, and the Crusaders were much bigger. Those were the reasons No. 4 Digital Harbor spent too much time shooting from long distance. The Rams had trouble generating offense, but Riverdale Baptist didn't, and the Crusaders pulled away in the second half for a 66-47 victory in the 14th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State. Riverdale Baptist (15-5), ranked No. 4 in The Washington Post poll, easily beat No. 3 Western on Friday night, using a variety of zones and traps to shut down the lane.

The City girls basketball team Friday night faced Riverdale Baptist - traditionally one of the toughest teams in the state - for the fourth straight time in the fourth annual Breezy Bishop Showcase at Western. This time Riverdale Baptist won, 56-45, as it had in each of the three previous meetings. But this time it was not a blowout, and the No. 7 Knights went home with hope for the rest of their season. "They had quick guards and could make their foul shots," said City senior guard LaShay Taft, who scored 11 points and will attend Syracuse next year.

Aberdeen's girls basketball team got off to a quick start Thursday night, scoring the first eight points against nationally ranked Riverdale Baptist, but with the Eagles' lack of a true point guard and the Crusaders' impressive perimeter shooting, it couldn't last. Riverdale Baptist, ranked No. 17 in USA Today's Girls Basketball Super 25 and No. 4 in The Washington Post, hit 14 3-pointers en route to an 85-66 victory at No. 1 Aberdeen, their third win over the Eagles in less than a year.

All Ian Brenner was asking for was a little more time. Trailing by as many as 22 points to Riverdale Baptist, Brenner's Bowling Brook team launched a furious rally and shaved the lead to five with 25 seconds left in the fourth quarter. But the Thoroughbreds were forced to foul, and the visiting Crusaders -- who are ranked third by the Washington Post -- escaped Keymar with an 86-77 Beltway Basketball League victory last night. Brenner, a senior forward who led all scorers with 28 points, said only one thing prevented Bowling Brook (12-12, 4-5)

Matt McPhearson is the outlier of his family, the ugly duckling of sorts. With a family of football players, the gridiron seemed like the obvious choice. Instead, McPhearson chose baseball, and Thursday night the speedy center fielder could become the first high school or college player from the state to be drafted in the first or second round of baseball's amateur draft since 2007. "It's a blessing," said McPhearson, who lives in Columbia and just finished his senior year at Riverdale Baptist School in Prince George's County.

There's more to sport than winning. There are life lessons. There's the camaraderie. There's the fun of it all. But there's also the thrill of victory, and it's a thrill known many times this season by the girls on the Aberdeen High School basketball team, most recently over the weekend when they won the Maryland Class 3A state high school championship game. The Eagles had a spectacular season, defeating just about every opponent they faced. Their only defeat came at the hands of Riverdale Baptist, a team ranked sixth in the nation by USA Today . Even in the team's one loss there was consolation to be found as forward TK Fowlkes told the Baltimore Sun : "It's a great learning experience.

RIVERDALE BAPTIST CHURCH believes that it has made significant concessions to the southern Anne Arundel community of Davidsonville by scaling back its project. It is dropping plans to build a family life and recreation center and reducing the amount of parking.Because of those changes, the church also now doesn't require a special exception hearing by the county. This exploitation of a loophole is grossly unfair to the current residents.After much conflict over the issue, the County Council this winter passed Bill 93-96 to ensure that when large, non-profit organizations move into rural areas, there would be community participation and county oversight.

With a versatile game that mixes a little small forward and a lot of point guard with her natural shooting guard abilities, Imani Bailey leads a Meade girls basketball team that has dominated Anne Arundel County and appears headed for a second straight trip to the District V championship against the Howard County champ. Bailey, a 5-foot-8 senior, averages 23.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 4.8 steals per game for the No. 6 Mustangs (15-5). An AAU veteran, she was coached by her father in her early years.
