When Kathy Zerrlaut arrived at UMBC in 1973, the women's teams didn't play in the brand new UMBC Fieldhouse, now RAC Arena, and UMBC didn't even have a stadium. The new coach's volleyball team played in the old gym, and her lacrosse team played on a field in front of the library. As Zerrlaut prepares to retire at the end of this month after 41 years as a coach and administrator at UMBC, including 24 as senior women's administrator, she has been a champion both for women's sports and for Retrievers athletics as a whole, playing a key role in the program's development.

As it neared 6 p.m. on a recent gray and cool Tuesday evening, women began to fill the ratty softball field at Jacobsville Park in Pasadena.They came with bats and balls and gloves and caps, flexing, stretching, swinging, chatting. The job, kids, home and husband were fine, they confirmed. Some had hastily cooked dinner before rushing to the field.Some adjusted gloves and tucked in shirts. Some pulled baseball caps over gray-streaked or white hair.Finally, they threw out the first pitch.Every summer since 1994, the Bay Ladies Softball League -- about 25 players between the ages of 40 and 79 -- has met weekly in Anne Arundel County for practice and games.

Longtime UMBC coach and athletic administrator Kathy Zerrlaut announced her retirement Thursday after 41 years of working at the university, which has existed for only 48 years. "It's been 41 years, and I'm not getting any younger," Zerrlaut said, laughing. "It's time to move on, to change and try to enjoy my life outside of a work area. I've loved my career, but sometimes you have to say it's time to go. " A Baltimore native and Lansdowne graduate, Zerrlaut was hired by then-UMBC athletic director Dick Watts in 1973 after earning her bachelor's and master's degrees from Frostburg State.

She wants to play in her own back yard: Maryland.After five years of making the 100-mile round trip to Vienna, Va., twice a week, Ms. Hull is trying to organize a senior women's softball league here. "You just can't explain how much fun it is to get out there and play with other senior women," said the retired secretary.

Women helping other women at work - fact or fiction? When it comes to mentoring, there are those who claim women do less of it than men - on purpose. That women view other women strictly as competitors. That we are more likely to undermine female colleagues than support them. Fortunately I've rarely experienced this. Not only have I had female mentors, I find mentoring future leaders (of both genders) fun and rewarding. I also do not view other women innately as competitors. (For what, to be the only woman in the room?

At age 8, Mahal Maria May started dance class and quickly made it as much a part of her education as the ABCs. She concentrated on Hawaiian routines and has spent decades mastering the nuances of the dance forever associated with America's island state. She often performs in traditional grass skirt before an audience or at a family luau. "I love the hula," said May, whose first name translates to "love" in her native Filipino. "It tells a lovely story in a feminine way. " Now, at 65, she is the reigning Ms. Maryland Senior America and is practicing her signature dance for the national pageant in October in Atlantic City, N.J. May, a retired education consultant for the federal government and a Davidsonville resident, is used to performing as a member of the South County Showstoppers, a traveling troupe of seniors.
