Atholton sophomore Matt Sklar first picked up a tennis racquet when he was 5 years old and started playing competitively when he was 10. But when he came to Atholton last year, he saw tennis differently. He has enjoyed and thrived in the team atmosphere and loves the support he receives and gives to teammates. After reaching the state tournament playing doubles with partner George Mao last year - they finished 24-2 - Sklar moved to No. 1 singles this season and has excelled. After capturing the Howard County singles title and leading the Raiders to their third straight Howard County Cup team crown on Saturday, he took an 18-1 mark into District 5 region play on Thursday.

In the midst of the mass exodus that saw five players with remaining eligibility leave Maryland this past spring, Mark Turgeon took a high-profile matchup Dec. 8 against Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden off the 2014-15 schedule. At the time, Turgeon cited a “scheduling conflict” as the reason. It was more the uncertainty of what kind of team the Terps were going to put on the court after a 17-15 season, the most disappointing year in the short Turgeon Era and one of the most underachieving by Maryland in memory.

''I just wanted to throw him one more for The Gipper,'' Mr. Kemp says.Not finding his old buddy, he introduces his wife Joanne as ''the only mother of three professional quarterbacks in the history of America'' -- not quite accurate; she's the wife of one and the mother of two others, sons Jeff and Jimmy.

"The Mighty Ducks" hews to its formula with such Zen purity it's amazing; indeed, that commitment to unoriginality is the most impressive thing about it.They've been making this one since the mid-'70s, when they called it "The Bad News Bears." This time, they're making it about pee-wee hockey, with a listless subtext involving self-forgiveness and redemption. Yet, as machine-made as it surely is, somehow the thing isn't quite as bad as it should be.Emilio Estevez was born for this role. He's got the natural smugness of a man who absolutely knows he'll never lose his hair.

Raffa dominated the faceoff circle, winning 20 of 24 draws, and the offense came from Connor Cannizzaro, who scored three fourth-quarter goals, and Mike Chanenchuk, who notched three first-half goals, to help Maryland to a 12-8 victory. The victory gave Maryland the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title in its final season in the league.

Maryland's leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is like a slow death. There's nothing immediate about it. It's sad, toxic and terribly emotional. This isn't just about history and tradition - or even conference pride. For seasoned fans of the University of Maryland, it's far deeper. We're witnessing the end of generational ties to Maryland where parents nurtured championship dreams and molded team loyalty for their children based on rivalries of old. The end of conversations and spirited debate about players and stats versus a particular conference team.

For the second consecutive year, the Mount St. Mary's and Maryland men's lacrosse teams will open the season against each other. The Terps have won all 10 meetings in this series, outscoring the Mountaineers, 177-48. Mount St. Mary's, which is seeking its second season-opening win in three years, ranked 28th in scoring last spring, but graduated its entire starting attack and midfield. Returning players scored just seven of last season's 155 goals, and coach Tom Gravante is expecting a fair share of hiccups and mistakes for a number of fresh faces making their debut in collegiate lacrosse.
