Going into her junior year, Audrey Todd had already been part of two Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference tennis championships for Roland Park, sharing the first one with Bryn Mawr. Her third chance last week — when the Reds came away winners in the four-day tournament capped on Thursday — was even more special. Also in the middle of the excitement was Audrey's younger sister, Ava, a freshman who made an instant impact. Audrey won at No. 1 singles — avenging her only loss of the season by defeating McDonogh's Kristina Centenari, 7-5, 6-4 to finish 8-1 — and Ava finished the season 9-0 at No. 2 singles by beating St. Paul's Marta Cherpak, 6-0, 6-1. Audrey, who also plays varsity lacrosse at Roland Park, and Ava are both 'A' students at Roland Park.

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.

Despite receiving its biggest single payday in the history of the athletic program last week, Towson University  might not be able to avoid the financial reality that has affected many larger schools in recent years. Three days after taking home a check for $510,000 from its nationally televised football game at LSU on Saturday, Towson announced Tuesday that it is recommending cutting the school's baseball and men's soccer as part of the athletic program's reorganization. Third-year athletic director Mike Waddell said in an interview that he began meeting with the coaches and athletes of the teams involved around 8 a.m. Tuesday and continued to meet with staff members and athletes who had morning class later in the day.

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.
