Lost in the shuffle of a remarkable girls basketball season in the county has been the steady play of senior Maureen Ritcey.She isn't part of the magical, 21-game run the Cavaliers are enjoying in Winfield. And she doesn't play on the talented Westminster team that has maintained a ranking in the metro poll for the entire season.Ritcey can be found in the northwest part of the county, scoring, grabbing rebounds and racking up steals and assists for a young Francis Scott Key program. That's only the start of what she provides on the hardwood at Key."

Another slow start proved costly for the Francis Scott Key girls, as they saw their two-game winning streak end with a 58-43 loss against visiting Catoctin last night in Uniontown.The Eagles (3-6 and 3-2 in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League) opened the game missing their first 10 shots. By the time Tina Smith hit a layup with 2:49 left in the first quarter, Catoctin (8-2, 5-1) had already built a 12-0 lead."We have a tendency to come out intimidated, and it takes us a few minutes to realize we can play with these teams," said Francis Scott Key coach Brian Hollingsworth.

The stage is set for the Francis Scott Key Eagles to take a new direction.Coach Brian Hollingsworth is looking for more balance this season and has a solid group of all-around athletes to work with.Over the past couple of years, the Eagles relied on one of the steadiest backcourts the county has ever seen -- Erin Murphey and Shelley Smith -- to provide most of the offense and leadership. With the two now playing basketball at Western Maryland College, Hollingsworth is looking for some others to step up and take center stage.

Last season, the Francis Scott Key volleyball team got off to a 6-1 start before it lost a tough five-game match to Monocacy Valley Athletic League power Smithsburg.A tough schedule followed and the inexperienced, junior-dominated Eagles lost a few more close matches to finish 9-6 on the season.This season, those same Eagles are now seniors, and second-year coach Leo Totten is hoping the year's worth of experience can turn those tough losses into wins. So far, so good.Off to another fast start at 5-1, Key again met up with Smithsburg last Monday.
