Oakland Mills football coach Thomas Browne, whose Scorpions won their first homecoming game in more than a decade Friday, was named Ravens High School Coach of the Week. With the 40-31 win over Hammond, the Scorpions improved to 3-0 and need just one more win to match last season's total. They hadn't started a season with three wins since 2010 and are looking for their first winning season since 2003. Browne played on the Scorpions' 1998 state championship team, and he is in his fourth season coaching his alma mater.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Oakland Mills Scorpions, who brought home to Howard County the girls Class 1A state basketball championship Saturday.Coach Teresa Waters used a few choice words to motivate her athletes, whose lead was only 11-10 at halftime. They came out firing in the third quarter, outscoring Williamsport of Washington County 13-4, and putting the game out of reach. Oakland Mills (18-9) was having a mediocre year until the team gelled and finished a storybook season by winning 10 of its last 12 games.

With its lead shrinking in a hostile road environment against Atholton on Monday, Oakland Mills went back to its roots. By increasing the defensive pressure and working for a mix of midrange jumpers and layups, the No. 8 Scorpions regrouped to finish like the defending county champions that they are. A 10-1 run midway through the fourth quarter helped Oakland Mills break open a four-point game and create the separation needed to earn a 78-71...

This week, "The Amazing Race" gives us bushmen and scorpions in Africa, which is just what we all needed, right? The first clue tells teams that they must go to the city of Maun in the Kalahari desert. They have to find out what country they're headed for before a security guard will let them into a travel agency to buy tickets.  He has one job, let him do it! The travel agency is a small place and the doors are plate glass. Basically, people on the outside can see and hear people on the inside.  The Fearless Friends check a hotel computer and discover that they are headed to Botswana.

Oakland Mills coach Teresa Waters got some bad news even before practice began -- three potential starters would not return.Two defected to the indoor track team and a third, senior Kristen Ostlie, will miss the season with a back injury. Those players had helped boost the Scorpions from a 1-21 team two years ago to a five-game winner last season.Waters had hoped to improve enough to contend for the county title. She still thinks the Scorpions can compete, but there may be some ups and downs -- especially with a bench full of underclassmen.

Most of the time, the opening tip in a basketball game is a simple formality. But Oakland Mills junior forward Mamadou Ndiaye can make it a spectacle. Opposite Hammond's big man at a recent home game, Ndiaye - a sleek 6 feet, 7 inches and 195 pounds - easily gets a foot higher to reach the ball at its highest point. He sends the tap back with such force, however, the ball goes over a teammate and out of bounds on the baseline. The seamless effort is an immediate testament to Ndiaye's natural athletic gifts.

Tavi Thomas ended the Oakland Mills dream of a perfect season Thursday night. Thomas drilled a 3-pointer with nine seconds left that gave visiting Calvert a come-from-behind 69-67 victory over No. 6 Oakland Mills in the Class 2A South region championship. Oakland Mills entered the game as the only unbeaten public school team left in the state - for boys - and the Scorpions finished with a 24-1 record. Oakland Mills was trying to make the state final four for the first time in 12 years, and a state championship would have meant the Scorpions did it with a perfect record.

Scorpion, anyone? How about silkworms and mole crickets? Corner BYOB has them on the menu, for one night only, at Tuesday night's Gastronaut Society Dinner. Bernard Dehaene's menu starts, innocently enough, with a parsnip and potato vichyssoise with escargot confit in duckfat. Then, things get alarming -- the next course is an herb and orchid flower salad with silkworms and mole crickets. Then come scallop and scorpion with cactus and prickly pair, followed by a calf's head, for the guests to share, with apples and Calvados; and then, a filet of colin (kind of like a pollack)

All through its undefeated regular season, the Oakland Mills boys basketball team was decidely superior against its Howard County competition. Nothing changed when Anne Arundel County's best, No. 13 Broadneck, challenged the No. 4 Scorpions in Wednesday night's District V championship game at Mount Hebron. The Howard County champions brought more size, quickness and athleticisim to the title game, and it was apparent early. Behind a pestering zone trap and a 23-point performance from 6-foot-9 senior Greg Whittington, Oakland Mills scored the game's first 20 points to come away with a 58-24 win over the Bruins.
