Stories about the white clapboard house at the former Pleasant Grove Farm in Owings Mills abound, including that Confederate soldiers sought food and horses from the anti-slavery family of Richard Scott and that Confederate sympathizers tore down his flagpole because he flew a U.S. flag. Alex and Rob Shek love older homes and, as the couple house-hunted a decade ago, they fell for this one, which seems a world away from the road. "We walked in it once and bought it the same day. We bought it for the charm," said Alex Shek.

He was strictly an afterthought.Edgewood High's Austin and Bel Air's Dail were visiting Towson because Runk and his staff were recruiting them heavily. Shek tagged along at Dail's urging."We felt Austin was the best midfielder in Harford County and Dail the best attackman," Runk said.

Rob Shek doesn't have to score a half-dozen goals a game to please Philadelphia Wings coach Mike French. If he rattles the net once or twice a game, fine, but more important to French is Shek getting back on defense and following his simple $l philosophy of the indoor game -- don't get caught sleeping."

As long as he has a ball and a wall to throw it against, Rob Shek figures to keep getting better as a lacrosse player. His rate of improvement eventually will slow down, but when it does there might not be many in the game who can keep up with the sport's fastest-rising midfielder.For now, Shek wants to slow down some, even if he is playing for three different summer teams. He helped another, Green Turtle, to the championship of the Vail (Colo.) Shootout Sunday, when it beat the Syracuse All-Stars and a couple of guys named Gait against whom Shek held his own.In late May, Shek, who would eventually be voted the top midfielder in college lacrosse, hoisted Towson State on his shoulders and nearly carried the Tigers to a national championship, as they finally fell to North Carolina in the NCAA final.

Rob Shek, a 1987 graduate of Bel Air High School, is making a name for himself in Towson State University's lacrosse program and in lacrosse circles around the nation.Last year, as a junior, he became the school's first second-team All-American in Towson State's 12-yearhistory of Division I play in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. He is a strong candidate to become the school's first Division I first-team All-American.Shek, 22, has transformed himself from a player who could only penetrate the box with his right hand to a player who is now equally threatening left-handed.

Most were aware of the firepower in McDonogh's three-pronged offense led by Pat Shek and the twin towers, Joe Benson and Jed Prossner. Most also knew about faceoff middie Andrew Bond, the fuse who lights the fire. But the arrival of sophomore Boys' Latin transfer Tyler Kelley has allowed coach Jake Reed to move Shek back to midfield, his natural position. And as evidenced by yesterday's 12-7 victory at eighth-ranked Calvert Hall (1-2), the move has made the fifth-ranked Eagles (6-0) even better.

But the emotionally charged Greyhounds scored the first six goals of the second half of an 11-10 victory on its muddy field, improving to 11-0 on the season before nearly 3,000 fans.
