The most storied program in state field hockey history on Saturday checked off one accomplishment it had yet to achieve. Third-ranked Severna Park scored the game's first four goals, including two in the first half by midfielder Jessica Valvano, on its way to a 4-1 win over Wootton in the Class 4A final at Washington College. It marked the Falcons' state-record 21st title, but the program's first since legendary coach Lil Shelton stepped down following the 2011 season. Shelton's 20 state titles are a National Federation record.

For three days, McDonogh's National Preps champion Bryn Holmes was bedridden with a viral infection. "He wasn't in school all week until Thursday," said his mother, Erin. "We told him if he didn't go Thursday, he'd have to stay home." But there was no way that the competitor inside of the two-time state champion 152-pounder was going to let him miss yesterday's 24-team Mount Mat Madness Invitational -- not with a final chance to face St. Mark's Andrew Bradley, who had beaten him twice in one day earlier this year.

A couple of weeks after becoming a two-time state champion, Hereford's Josh Asper was beaten by the opponent he might face again if he reaches the 160-pound, Class 2A-1A state final in March. "Tyler Mullen beat me in an offseason tournament right after states, but I was able to come back and beat him later on in the summer," said Asper, who had faced the South Carroll junior before they reached high school. "I think that was the first time I had beaten him, and he's always kind of been ahead of me. In eighth grade, Tyler beat me once.

WE'RE HARDLY out of the car in a blighted block of southern Baltimore when faces appear at windows and doorways. Three strangers, one scribbling notes, heading for a back alley - something's up. The truth is stranger than the neighbors might believe. Marion Bedingfield, a city forester and big-tree guru of Baltimore, has brought us here to appreciate the full and glorious potential of a weed. When you're responsible for about a half-million trees, it's hard to have one favorite, "but I can tell you we're all proud of this bad boy," Bedingfield says, pushing through junk and mattresses that clog the alleyway.

Joon Kim, Centennial's 189-pound state champion, says he wants to wrestle in college and then the Olympics."I saw Olympic wrestling on television when I was in the eighth grade, and that inspired me to begin wrestling my freshman year," he said.Like most novices, Kim, now a senior, struggled that first year. "I didn't know anything," he said. "It was pretty hard to learn. I had a lot of illegal moves, like locking hands on full nelsons."Making the Olympics may sound like a teen-ager's fantasy, but not many people would have bet three years ago that Kim would become a state champion.

The South River field hockey team opened its season Saturday morning with a new head coach, a slew of new starters and more than a few question marks. About seven hours later, the No. 4 Seahawks had found all the right answers. Following a lopsided opening-round win over the Academy of the Holy Cross, defending Class 4A state champion South River scored three goals in a six-minute span early in the first half, then held off No. 2 Glenelg the rest of the way in a 3-1 win in the final of the South River Invitational.

Hereford football coach Steve Turnbaugh didn't mind dropping from Class 3A to 2A this fall. His Bulls get away from their toughest Baltimore County rivals, Franklin and Milford Mill, but that doesn't exactly clear their path to the state tournament. "We jump to Class 2A North and there's Dunbar," Turnbaugh said. "Looking at their history and their talent, they just reload. If you're a legitimate state contender, you're going to see Dunbar somewhere along the way, and I've never seen Dunbar play.

When comparing the top private schools with the public ones in boys lacrosse, across-the-board depth is often considered the biggest difference. As Friday night's season opener between defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion Gilman and four-time defending Class 3A-2A state champ Hereford wore on, that became more and more apparent. The No. 2 Greyhounds simply had more quantity and quality throughout the 48 minutes, pulling away in the second half for a 10-3 win at No. 8 Hereford.
