The Arundel and Severna Park volleyball teams are set to meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Meade for the Anne Arundel County volleyball championship. Fourth-ranked Arundel (13-0) took the regular-season meeting over No. 5 Severna Park (10-4) in a near three-hour marathon a couple of weeks ago that lasted five games. The victory marked the Wildcats' first over the Falcons in more than 20 years. "I remember my first year, we beat them in the first game we played, and I was like, `Oh, this is simple,' " said Greg Legrand, Arundel's fifth-year coach.

The Severna Park volleyball team has towered over its competition in Anne Arundel County so far this season. The No. 2 Falcons have three players on the front line who average 6 feet tall - Mary Smith (6-3), Sophie Hoekstra (5-11) and Tara Register (5-10) - but it's 5-foot-7 setter Morgan Kline who makes the offense work. Kline, a junior, contributed 26 assists and 10 digs to lead host Severna Park (10-0, 9-0) to a 25-19, 25-21, 25-14 victory over No. 8 Arundel (9-2, 8-2) in a key Anne Arundel County league game Monday.

Notebook After Broadneck knocked Severna Park out of the playoffs with a 13-0 victory Saturday, the two rival teams gathered for a prayer in the middle of the field in Cape St. Claire. "That was planned out, and that was something I will never forget," Severna Park quarterback Pat Morrison said. "That was awesome. I really enjoyed it." The postgame prayer was done as a way to ease tensions between the schools. The intensity of the rivalry between the two schools in all sports, both boys and girls, has reached a fever pitch in the past couple of years.

Severna Park senior Joe Shum - in just his fourth year of wrestling - was 15-7 heading into tonight in the 160-pound division. He was second in the Anne Arundel County championships last season, but ran into a loaded field in the regional. Shum, who also competes in gymnastics in the spring was made team captain by coach Paul Joyce because of his leadership qualities. Not many high school wrestlers bypass junior wrestling and start the sport in ninth grade, so what got you out on the mat?

The coach did not comment further, but did say he intends to fight the action.

Severna Park is on the verge of doing something no other Falcons football team has done in the school's 46-year history - make three consecutive trips to the playoffs. At 7-1 after Friday's 48-7 victory at Chesapeake (1-7), the No. 8 Falcons (6-0 in the county) have all but clinched another berth in the Class 3A South region. A victory at winless Glen Burnie (0-8, 0-8) Friday should clinch the postseason spot. J.P. Hines, who is only the third head coach in Falcons history, has a 47-35 record in eight seasons.

Arundel and Meade now have company.The Severna Park Falcons -- who relied on a zone defense with occasional half-court pressure that had No. 5-ranked Arundel puzzled in the first half and a clutch 23-point performance from junior guard Natalie Hicks -- brought in the New Year with a stunning 62-59 win over the visiting Wildcats last night.The talk from the county coaches going into the season had Class 4A state runner-up Arundel and county runner-up and No. 6 Meade clearly at the top of the list, with Severna Park a team to possibly watch out for.Guess what?

Westminster goalie Lindsay Nichols did everything she could to hold off unbeaten Severna Park in yesterday's state Class 4A-3A girls lacrosse semifinal. In the end, the No. 2 Falcons figured out how to hit the corners and took too many shots for the freshman goalie to contend with. Despite 21 saves from Nichols, the Falcons came away with a hard-earned 20-7 victory at Annapolis. The Falcons (19-0) will go after their seventh state title and their first since 2001 when they meet two-time defending champ Dulaney in a rematch of last year's final Tuesday or Wednesday night at UMBC.

It should come as no surprise that a South River-Severna Park field hockey game ended with a one-goal difference. What is surprising is how the No. 5 Falcons (10-2) were able to carry the play for most of the game in their 2-1 victory over the No. 4 Seahawks (8-3) on Tuesday at Kinder Farm Park. Cassy Zachares and Lauren Duvall scored second-half goals for Severna Park, which erased a 1-0 halftime deficit by taking 11 shots in the second half and won its third straight game since losses to the Seahawks and Cape Henlopen (Del.)

Two new synthetic turf fields unveiled this week at Kinder Farm Park will transform the Millersvillle facility into the new home of Severna Park High School athletics - at least for the foreseeable future. Community leaders, school officials and student athletes gathered at the complex Monday to dedicate the fields, which along with four additional grass surfaces will accommodate many of the Falcons' fall and spring sports teams while construction is underway on the new Severna Park High School.

Opportunistic on offense and dogged on defense, the Broadneck boys soccer team accomplished something against Severna Park on Thursday that no other team has since 2012. The No. 11 Bruins got a goal from junior midfielder Ford Murphy midway through the second half and sturdy work on defense the rest of the way to earn a 2-1 win over the defending Class 4A state champion Falcons, ending Severna Park's 27-game unbeaten streak. Severna Park went 17-0-2 last season. The No. 2 Falcons, now 7-1-1 and 5-1-1 in Anne Arundel, finally found their match Thursday at Kinder Farm Park as the Bruins improved to 8-1-1 and stayed undefeated in county play at 7-0. Senior defender Will Hankins, assigned to mark the Falcons' All-Metro senior forward Daniel Kwon, was understandably tired following the game.

Severna Park has dominated Class 4A boys cross country the last few years. The Falcons won the last two state championships by wide margins and easily beat most opponents during the season. That didn't happen during the Bull Run Invitational's Elite Division race Saturday at Hereford. No. 2 Dulaney has run well early this fall, and the Lions pushed No. 1 Severna Park, before the Falcons pulled out a seven-point victory. This race was likely a preview of what will be seen at the Class 4A state title meet on Nov. 8, also at Hereford, and both teams knew it. Eric Walz of Dulaney was the individual champion, taking first in 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds as the Lions put two runners in the top 10. But Severna Park used the depth that's made it so hard to beat over the last three seasons.

The final's defining moment came at the end of the first set. The Falcons were trailing 23-16, having started the match seemingly flat, when coach Tim Dunbar called a timeout.

David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.

Arundel repeated as Anne Arundel County boys soccer champions with a 4-1 victory over Severna Park last night at Broadneck's Lawrence E. Knight Stadium in Cape St. Claire. The No. 7 Wildcats (11-2-2) shared last year's county title with Broadneck after the teams played to a 0-0 tie in double overtime. Since the county final began in 1994, Arundel had only appeared one other time before last season, a 5-0 loss to Chesapeake in 1997. "It's great to win it outright this time," said Wildcats senior Brendan McCarron, who scored his team's first and last goals.

In Severna Park's season-opening win earlier this week, Falcons coach Tim Dunbar didn't like the way his players were executing. He decided to go back to the basics: passing, blocking and playing defense. The emphasis paid off big time for the fifth-ranked Falcons, as they out-hit and out-defensed top-ranked and visiting St. Paul's (0-2), 25-11, 25-16, 25-14, in a nonleague game. The Falcons (2-0) were led by junior setter Morgan Kline, who contributed 29 assists, 10 digs, and two aces.
