Don Zimmerman can't imagine where the UMBC offense would be if attackman Matt Gregoire had decided to not return for a fifth year of eligibility. "I don't think I'd want to do that," Zimmerman said with a chuckle on Monday morning. Gregoire, a South River graduate, has broken several records for the Retrievers (7-6, 3-2), who - as the No. 3 seed - will meet second-seeded Binghamton (7-7, 4-1) in the America East semifinals at Stony Brook on Thursday. His 41 goals in 2014 are the most by a UMBC player in a season since Cayle Ratcliffe scored 42 in 2007.

NASHVILLE -- The have-nots of Division I athletics scored a victory over the haves at the 85th annual NCAA Convention today.The restructuring debate was resolved in favor of smaller, less-visible institutions whose status in Division I would have been endangered if scholarship minimums for sports other than football and basketball were installed. Minimums mandated by Proposal 46 were approved, but not before they were watered down by two amendments.Proposal 46 was passed by a 175-149 margin, and technically Division I members would have to fund anywhere from 19-25 scholarships each for men's and women's non-revenue sports.

Coaches sometimes can be hard to please. But Centennial coach Kevin McCoy smiles a lot when talking about the early season success of his young team. Centennial won the Barnhart Invitational last weekend at Dulaney, and the girls turned in another strong performance en route to the Large School division title in Saturday's Bull Run Invitational at Hereford. The Eagles defeated a number of strong teams in the Bull Run, an event that's always popular due to its tough competition.

Seniors Lee McDuff of River Hill and Mike Myers of Eastern in New Jersey captured individual titles in the large schools and elite divisions, respectively, to headline the fifth annual Bull Run Invitational at Hereford High School in Parkton. McDuff, who grabbed the crown last year in the same division, finished the 3-mile hilly course in 20 minutes, 11 seconds.

She's spent decades analyzing test scores and other student performance measures, but Mary E. Yakimowski doesn't consider herself a "number-cruncher." "I'd rather be considered one who knows how to take data and use data and explain the implications of it," she said. "It's OK to have numbers, but you need to make use of numbers." That's exactly what Baltimore schools chief Carmen V. Russo has hired the veteran education research specialist from Virginia to do. Yakimowski, 41, has joined Russo's team as research, evaluation and accountability officer, replacing an interim officer, Ricka Markowitz, who has served for more than two years.
