Broadneck football coach Rob Harris took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge twice. He's not on Facebook and didn't have proof of the first dousing, so he had ice water poured over his head a second time. That didn't bother him. Harris would take a few more ice water showers if it would raise additional money for research into the neurodegenerative disease at the heart of the challenge, a social media fundraising wave that has swept the country this month. Harris has a personal connection to ALS. His wife Sarah's uncle, Johnny O'Brien, a former Severna Park football player, was 56 when he died in January of the condition widely known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

ANY BASEBALL player worth his salt will say that many an at-bat has been wasted waiting for a room-service fastball to park over the fence when a perfectly acceptable changeup or breaking pitch would have done the trick. Longtime athletic trainer John Lopez similarly thinks the American sports culture has been so fixated of late on getting steroids out of high school sports that we've missed a bigger threat to the health of our kids: injuries due to overuse. "Before everybody hits the panic button on steroid testing for high school athletes, we need to ask ourselves a couple of questions," said Lopez, a trainer at Chesapeake Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy in Lutherville.

Catholic senior distance runner Ellie Gonzalez didn't slow down for a minute this year as she completed a fine four-year career in cross country and track. Boys' Latin senior lacrosse standout Shack Stanwick also proved to be a step ahead of the rest in leading the No. 1 Lakers to an undefeated season and, in the process, shattering the storied program's record book. On Wednesday, Gonzalez and Stanwick were recognized for their fine accomplishments this year by being named The Baltimore Sun's Female and Male High School Athletes of the Year at the 48th annual awards luncheon at the newspaper's downtown headquarters.

Today, these students will be honored at The Baltimore Sun's 39th Annual High School Athletes of the Year Awards Banquet.

DEAR Michael Phelps, Forgive the intrusion into your personal space in such a public way, but this seemed like the best way to enlist your help on what is becoming a life-and-death matter. In the past six weeks, high school athletes in our area are getting involved with alcohol at ages when they are hardly equipped to handle it, and someone needs to set them straight in a visible way. First, 14 Dulaney spring season athletes were barred from competition for a month for their part in a party in early March where 176 people were cited for underage drinking.

Good ol' Charles Barkley has made plenty of boneheaded comments over the years, but when he defiantly stated in a Nike commercial in the early 1990s that he wasn't a role model, he was absolutely right on the money. He went on to say: "I am not paid to be a role model. I am paid to wreak havoc on a basketball court. Just because I can dunk a basketball does not mean I should raise your kids." For all the good guys who do community service and reach out to today's youth, the likes of Cal Ripken Jr. and Warrick Dunn to name a couple, there seem to be twice as many poor examples, such as Adam Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, Michael Vick and Ron Artest.

Howard County's tough new academic eligibility policy has disqualified less than 2 percent of high school athletes this school year -- a far smaller number than many had feared -- according to a study presented to the school board last week.Only 95 students who wanted to try out for winter and spring athletic teams were ineligible because of the new policy, said Donald Disney, Howard's coordinator of athletics. At least 3,870 students played on the winter and spring sports teams at Howard's 10 high schools this year.

Every summer, Rick Diggs and athletic directors from schools that play in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association gather at a quiet retreat to discuss athletic budgets, trade stories and bond without pressure from players, parents and principals. Just as in previous summers, Diggs, the executive director of the MIAA - the governing body for male sports in the 26 private and parochial schools throughout the Baltimore area - last year proposed a rule to prohibit athletes from transferring into a member school from a public school during the academic year and immediately playing.

For only the third time since 1980, the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state championships for cross country will not take place at Hereford this fall. In a phone call Friday afternoon, MPSSAA executive director Ned Sparks said he received an email last week from Hereford saying that the well-reputed three-mile course on the school's rural Parkton campus was being affected by ongoing school construction. "They held out as long as they could, and they thought that they might be able to pull it off, but they just said, 'Hey, at this time, in the interest of fairness, we're gonna pull the plug now, so we can make alternate plans rather than wait a week or two before," Sparks said.

Because investors want to see growth, much of the talk surrounding Under Armour in the first half of the year focused on areas like women's gear and non-cleat footwear. The company's share of those arenas is still minuscule, its marketing efforts still in nascent stages. But Under Armour knows not to stray too far from the sport -- and the feel -- that helped it grow into a $2 billion a year enterprise. It also knew whose influence it wanted to infuse any new football campaign with: former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

When the Ravens visited the White House on Wednesday, four Baltimore City athletes went along for the ride. The Ravens invited city high school football players Steven Thomas (Poly) and David Owens (City), as well as girls basketball players A'Lexus Harrison (Digital Harbor) and Zyaire Lockley (Western), to join them in Washington, D.C., because President Barack Obama announced during the trip that the Ravens will be donating new uniforms for Baltimore City girls varsity basketball and varsity football teams.

During the winter of her freshman year, Liberty's Brittany Arndt looked for a way to stay in shape until lacrosse started in the spring. She just couldn't decide on the right path. A few of Arndt's friends surprised her with the suggestion that she should try indoor track. She didn't know a whole lot about the sport, but it seemed like a good idea. Arndt would be able to do plenty of running that would prepare her for lacrosse season. The decision proved to be a smart one. Arndt quickly realized indoor track helped her in many ways, and she really liked it. Now a senior in her fourth year running during the winter, Arndt is glad she took up the sport.

In this modern and very American true account of coming of age in the 1990's, Blais tells the story of the Lady Hurricans, a high school girls' hoops team. These girls worry about pimples, but more about how to juggle their divorced parents. They are aware of and angry about what coverage women's athletics gets, always "includes adjectives like 'lithe,' 'winsome' and 'gorgeous'" ... They could use, says one, "You know, words like strong." These girls are hip, they say things like "You go, girl" when they're down.
