Fallston's Jess Harlee knows things will be different now that she's a sophomore. When she burst onto the varsity girls basketball scene a year ago, opponents didn't know a lot about her. Now, they know. Not only did Harlee lead the Cougars to the Class 3A state semifinals for the first time in 10 years, but she was the Harford County Player of the Year and a second-team All-Metro selection. For a sophomore with that resume, expectations can only rise. "I think I'm going to be expected to be more of a leader and be more vocal this year and more of an offensive threat.

Nearly three years after the first recorded oral commitment by a sophomore, Johns Hopkins made history by accepting the first such commitment from a freshman - attackman Forry Smith of Haverford School in Havertown, Pa. Two more commitments from fellow members of the Class of 2016 soon followed....

Don't ever tell Jason Rodenhaver that you can't find a diamond in the rough. The University of Maryland women's golf coach knows better. He unearthed his jewel in the hills of Floyd County two years ago, when he basically stumbled upon Jessica Hollandsworth. "It was basically luck," Rodenhaver recalled. "It happened because I answered the phone one day. It's always been my theory -- always answer the phone because you never know." On the other end of the line was Floyd County High School assistant golf coach Bobby Clark, a former high school state champion who played at Clemson.

South River senior Jen Whitfield got hooked on pole vaulting in her freshman year, and she's been clearing the cross bar ever since. Competing in the indoor and outdoor seasons for four years, she has won one state title (her sophomore year in indoor) and has finished second at states in each of her first three years of outdoor. She would like nothing better than to come away with that elusive outdoor state title this spring. Whitfield has also won a number of county titles in indoor and outdoor and has the school record in both seasons - leaping 9 feet, 7 inches in indoor and 9-6 in outdoor.

Members of the summer government class at Annapolis High School succumbed to public speaking jitters when they testified against a proposed curfew in Annapolis in front of several members of the city council. Many testified in quiet voices, stared down at their notes and rushed through their statistics. But their words were clear: A late-night curfew for those under age 18 doesn't make sense. The bad apples are going to flout the rules, just as they are doing now, said Garrett Green, who will begin his sophomore year this fall: "They're going to just keep on doing what they're doing."

Long Reach senior forward Obi Ukwuoma has thrived in his role as the Lightning's team leader and go-to player, averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds this season. Ukwuoma, 6 feet 4, was primed for the responsibility. During his sophomore year, he was called up to the varsity before the team's state championship playoff run, getting experience in what it takes to win a title. And last season, when senior standout Michael Bowden went down with an early injury, Ukwuoma stepped up to take a lead role and earn first-team all-county honors.

During the final four run, Bouchelle started 17 games, accumulating seven goals and four assists. In the past two weeks, she has been named to the Soccer America National Team of the Week and the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week for scoring two goals and contributing two assists in victories over Michigan State and Michigan.

Brandon MacKnew said he'd love to be involved with lacrosse 24/7. This spring, he's well on his way. MacKnew is in his fourth year as Bel Air's starting goalie. But he also stays busy with lacrosse away from school, working as an official and a coach with the Churchville Recreation Council lacrosse program. The combination of playing, coaching and officiating keeps MacKnew occupied with lacrosse in the final semester of his senior year. But he savors every minute of it. "It puts a smile on my face, and at the end of the day, that's what it's all about," MacKnew said.

To get an idea of what Liberty sweeper Craig Wentz is about on the soccer field, let's first visit the senior's spring hobby -- tennis.He was nearing the end of his sophomore year when Wentz, looking for something to do, picked up a racket, eventually found a partner in pal Brian Levin and started playing exhibition doubles for the Lions' tennis team.A year later, the two were county doubles champs.They did it with no overwhelming serves, no screaming backhands and no domination at the net (Wentz is 5 feet 6, and Levin, who has since transferred to McDonogh, is shorter)

Liberty senior defender Carlyn Bonny has led a transformation of the Lions from an 8-8 team her sophomore season to a 12-3-1 squad that advanced to the second round of the Class 2A West regionals this season. Bonny always marked the opposing team's top scorer and was a three-year starter, leading a defense that allowed only seven goals this season. Liberty lost, 1-0, to South Carroll in the regionals after a postponement caused the Lions to play two days in a row. Do you think things would have been different if your team had a day off before playing South Carroll?
