North Carroll's Tom Kiler and South Carroll's Mike Chenoweth enter the season with a tag no other county wrestlers can claim -- returning state champions.It means a lot of different things.Some opponents come gunning for them, looking to make a mark if they can knock off a state champ. The majority rightly come in worried and overwhelmed, leaving little chance for themselves before the match even starts.And some of the best competition the two could face never gets to the mat with coaches preferring to instead slide them up or down the lineup to get matchups they will benefit more from.

Even before his senior season began, the praise was coming in from virtually everywhere for Owings Mills wrestler Grant Johnson.That's what can happen when your final high school season is preceded by consecutive 2A-1A state titles and a seventh-place finish in the summer freestyle nationals, which qualifies you as an All-American.Former Clarion State wrestler and 16-time national champ Wade Schalles, a world champ in 1977, calls Johnson "a class act."Haswell Franklin, chairman of the Maryland State Wrestling Association, said, "Grant Johnson has as much or more potential to do well in Division I wrestling than any Maryland wrestler in the past decade."

Old Mill's football players came into their home opener Friday night with a chip on their collective shoulder. They wanted to prove it's time to talk about current Patriots such as Marcus Hicks, Jalen Jones and Carl Chance instead of dwelling on the talent they lost from last year's Class 4A state championship team. Against Anne Arundel County foe Broadneck, the host Patriots proved they could pick up right where the state title team left off despite graduating 16 starters, including running back Rob Chesson and his state-record 49 touchdowns.

It was all intended to prepare the No. 5 Clippers for games like the one they played at No. 1 Milford Mill in Saturday's Class 3A North region title game. Suddenly trailing by nine points in the final minute of the third quarter, the Clippers scored 12 straight to climb back in the game and then did all the big and little things needed from that point on to pull out a thrilling 75-72 win over the two-time defending Class 3A state champion Millers.

After competing at a high level in gymnastics throughout her childhood, Arundel senior Elyse Smidinger switched to golf when she was in the eighth grade. To say she has been proven to be a quick study is an understatement. On Oct. 25, Smidinger added to an already impressive resume when she cruised to her second straight individual girls state championship. In addition to her success at the high school level, Smidinger won the Maryland Junior Championships in 2009 and 2011 and was the runner-up in this year's Maryland Women's Amateur Championships.

It's cool one August morning in a forest near the marsh, quiet but for the occasional bellowing of a few green frogs, and two experts on Maryland's flora and fauna are preparing for a sticky mission. Earl "Bud" Reaves dons a wide-brimmed hat and pulls on a pair of hip waders. "A bad day in the woods is better than a good day somewhere else," says Reaves, a forester for Anne Arundel County. Chris Swarth, clad in a tie-dyed shirt, pulls a bright red flag from his jeans. "We're going to find that tree, and we're going to mark it," says Swarth, the ecologist who directs the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in southernmost Anne Arundel County.
