St. Frances coach Nick Myles had some concerns about his team having a week off after earning a first-round bye as the top seed in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs. That type of layoff can potentially cause a team to lose some of its edge at the most crucial time of the season. The No. 1 Panthers, however, showed no ill effects against No. 5 John Carroll in Friday's semifinal and took control by forcing several early turnovers and converting a couple of clutch 3-pointers.

The hole Largo dug in its Class 2A South regional semifinal game at Glenelg on Wednesday night was just too deep to climb out of. There would be no come-from-behind victory like the one the Lions enjoyed against Oakland Mills on Monday night, as the No. 6 Gladiators cruised to a 75-45 victory. Glenelg will host Calvert in the regional final Friday at 7 p.m. The Gladiators focused on setting the tone in the first few minutes of Wednesday's semifial, pushing the ball on offense or kicking it out for a 3-point attempt, all the while playing smothering defense.

The Carroll commissioners cleared the way yesterday for New Windsor to build a firehouse when they gave the town's volunteer Fire Department 7 county-owned acres off Route 75. The land, now a ball field, will give the department space to build the two-story headquarters it wants. It has become increasingly difficult to cram new equipment into the firehouse on High Street, said Leon Fleming, liaison between Carroll County Volunteer Firemen's Association and the commissioners. "They've just outgrown it."

The county unveiled a traffic study yesterday that shows dense truck and train traffic at an intersection to be built in Carroll's smallest town as part of a $5.5 million project to divert heavy trucks from downtown Union Bridge. At peak morning and evening hours, the crossing of Shepherd's Mill Road and Route 75 could see as many as 143 trucks, 42 cars and six trains, according to a $1,400 county-funded traffic study. Buses from three area schools also have twice-daily runs along those roads.

Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission approved yesterday the realignment of a new county road intended to get heavy trucks off Main Street in Union Bridge. Many town residents attended a public hearing last month on the new Shepherd's Mill Road, but no one spoke against the project or submitted written objections before the planning commission vote yesterday. The original road alignment was closer to town and was included in a 1999 plan for the Union Bridge area. The route was shifted slightly when the project was expanded to include a rail spur - a Maryland Midland Railway line to remove freight trains from the small town's downtown.

NEW ORLEANS - Temple wobbled on the NCAA bubble two weeks ago, in need of an Atlantic 10 Conference championship in order to secure a 12th straight appearance in the tournament for John Chaney, its venerable coach. After a sizzling weekend at the Superdome, where the Owls flew by Florida, 75-54, yesterday, they're one win away from their second regional final in three seasons. Penn State, the No. 7 seed in the South, is the next test for 11th-seeded Temple (23-12), which posted its ninth straight win. The Owls got more hot shooting from senior Quincy Wadley, more guidance from junior point Lynn Greer and the defensive work that is Chaney's trademark.
