Loyola Maryland announced Thursday morning that it received a $3.2 million gift from an anonymous donor for the construction of a new tennis facility at Ridley Athletic Complex in honor of the university's longtime tennis coach. The center -- which will be named after Rick McClure, who has coached the men's and women's teams since 1979 and is a member of the school's Hall of Fame -- will feature eight lighted courts, a locker room, seating for fans, and a parking lot. The complex will give the institution the opportunity to play host to Patriot League championships and other tournaments.

Coppin State's Kay Crawley always waited until after her tennis matches to let each opponent in on a little secret. Though her playing style and youthful appearance allowed her to blend in with the rest of the competition, she was a little older.OK, not just a little. Crawley is a 45-year-old sophomore, married and the mother of three. But she is more than a novelty, more than a middle-aged woman trying to recapture her youth.Overcoming a late start in the sport and three years when she didn't pick up a racket before arriving at Coppin, Crawley developed into one of the top players in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference by season's end.Competing at No. 2 singles, she became the first Eagle to reach the final of the league championships in Tallahassee, Fla., and was chosen the tournament's outstanding women's player.

Domination is a foreign concept in the modern-day world of sports. Champions rarely repeat, and the playing field seems more level than ever. There are two exceptions to this rule in Carroll County. Paige Olson began and ended her Century tennis career as a champion, and Hannah Oneda of Winters Mill simply ran away from the competition in cross country and track and field. Their exceptional athletic achievements, standout performances in the classroom, and a willingness to serve their school and community have earned Olson and Oneda the Carroll Eagle's Spring Student-Athlete Award.

Mount St. Joseph tennis coach Tom Hughes knew he had something special the first day his team stepped onto the court for its first practice in early March. Most of the players had already spent much of the year improving their skills, so they were already in mid-season form by the first drill. The Gaels then went undefeated through the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association regular season and knocked off defending champion McDonogh in the playoffs, dropping just one game in that entire stretch.

Patterson Mill tennis coach Heather Consla wasn't sure what to expect this spring. It's the school's first year, so the Huskies have only freshmen and sophomores, many of whom lack tennis experience. Patterson Mill, however, is battling Aberdeen and Havre de Grace for first place in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Susquehanna Division. The Huskies are in first with a 6-0 record (6-1 overall), just ahead of Aberdeen (7-1 in conference) and Havre de Grace (6-2). "They have been working really hard," said Consla, who coaches the team with Kevin Casey and Leslie Butt.

THE ONE THING that continually amazed Rob Daniels about his father, Bruce, was how even as the years rolled by and dangling participles and prepositional phrases remained the same, he never lost his love of English and teaching it. Indeed, Rob came to think of his father, who taught English for 28 years and coached tennis for 17 at Gilman, like a comedian trying to sell a joke. "It was kind of like any great comedian, [Jerry] Seinfeld or anybody else," said Rob Daniels, a Gilman graduate and sportswriter with the Greensboro (N.C.
