Amanda Rodrigues-Smith's summer of idealism came to an end late Tuesday night, when Kweisi Mfume lost his bid to be the next U.S. senator from Maryland. Rodrigues-Smith worked as a volunteer for Mfume's campaign. From her dorm room at the University of North Carolina, where she's a junior political science and journalism major, she expressed disappointment that the candidate of her choice didn't win. So disappointed, she said, that she just might cast her ballot for Lt. Gov. Michael Steele in the general election.

The Maryland Association of Coaches of Soccer selected Broadneck's Kevin McMullen and Severna Park's Joyce Stefancik for its Coach of the Year awards and named Clint Peay of Oakland Mills, A.J. Wood of Georgetown Prep and Mia Dammen of Oakland Mills to the All-America squad.The honors came during last night's annual MACS banquet, sponsored by USF&G, at Martin's West. It doubled in size this year to nearly 400 with the addition of awards for the top female players. The All-South and All-State first-team selections are listed in Scoreboard on Page B6.* A proposal requiring high school physical education instructors to coach at least two sports in addition to their teaching duties is short-sighted and -- let's be polite here -- absurd.
