The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association confirmed Thursday it is planning to return the cross country state championship meet to Hereford this year. Construction at the school forced last year's title meet to be moved to McDaniel College in Carroll County. MPSSAA executive director Ned Sparks said Thursday that construction seems to be progressing well, and Hereford has given tentative assurances that everything's going to be ready for the Nov. 8 event. Sparks said the final decision will come in early September although it's on the MPSSAA's cross country bulletin that the state title meet is going back to Hereford.

Back in 1987, the Francis Scott Key boys cross country team was primed for a state title, coming off a second-place finish in the previous year's state meet and with several important runners returning.But the state cross country committee dealt a fatal blow to those hopes, combining the Class A and B meets (known as 1A and 2A) into one event. Key finished back in the pack that year, and the squad didn't even have enough members for a full team for several years.Jim Bullock brought the Eagles back with a vengeance, though, andthe squad earned the Class 1A boys title last year.

In August 2004, Michelle Newman tried out for the volleyball team at Eastern Technical High by day and cooled off in front of the television by night, watching the Athens Olympics. Having played recreational basketball, soccer and softball, and impressed by the events at Olympic Stadium, Newman made a mental note to try track and field in spring 2005, at the end of her freshman year. Two years later, Newman, now a junior, is one of the best horizontal jumpers the Baltimore area has ever seen.

The golf course at McDaniel College will host a different kind of athlete next month when the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association holds its cross country state championship meet there on Nov. 9. The meet, usually held at Hereford, had to be moved this year because of construction at the school. The MPSSAA reached a preliminary agreement with McDaniel in August and finalized the deal this month. McDaniel hosted the state championship in 1991 and 1992 when construction was also ongoing at Hereford, but otherwise the state meet has been held at the Baltimore County school every year since 1980.

For only the third time since 1980, the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state championships for cross country will not take place at Hereford this fall. In a phone call Friday afternoon, MPSSAA executive director Ned Sparks said he received an email last week from Hereford saying that the well-reputed three-mile course on the school's rural Parkton campus was being affected by ongoing school construction. "They held out as long as they could, and they thought that they might be able to pull it off, but they just said, 'Hey, at this time, in the interest of fairness, we're gonna pull the plug now, so we can make alternate plans rather than wait a week or two before," Sparks said.

Hammond's Jermika Miller had long wanted to win a state title. The triple jumper finally got one Friday - in her last high school meet. Miller won her event in Class 3A at the state championship meet at Morgan State on a day that featured weather more suited for football than track. The senior turned in her second-best jump of the season to win on the first day of competition for Class 3A and 4A schools. The No. 6 Digital Harbor boys lead in Class 3A (23 points), thanks to a win from Michael Francis in the long jump and Corey Mendez's second-place effort in the high jump.

Wednesday night's first-round meeting between No. 4 seed Frostburg State and No. 5 seed Mary Washington in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament is a re-match of a contest that the Bobcats won, 13-11, a week ago. That might be an advantage for Frostburg State, but coach Tommy Pearce said the advantage is more mutual than one-sided. “We get to see them on film against us, but they also get to watch film of us,” he said Tuesday. “So we're both learning from this film, and they're seeing some of the same stuff that we're seeing.
