He told kids to stay in school, watch their diets and go tobed early.

It's hard to imagine that an 11-0 softball blowout could hinge on just a key sequence or two, but that's what happened to Francis Scott Key yesterday in its first trip to the state softball tournament.The Eagles batted and ran themselves out of a potentially big offensive performance in the top of the fourth inning, then North Caroline made all the right moves in the bottom of the frame to blow open a close contest.Key should have had the bases loaded in the fourth. Wendy Galandak would have walked to open the frame if she hadn't swung at a pitch way out of the strike zone.

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.
