It's not unusual for high school athletes to change sports. It is rare, however, when they make the move and become a dominant force in a short amount of time. Hannah Oneda began her Winters Mill athletic career as a soccer and basketball player. But late in her freshman year, she switched to cross country and track. Two years later, she's one of the top runners in the state. "She has talent to start off with, but I think it is Hannah's dedication that makes her an elite runner," said Kelly Gruber, the Falcons' fifth-year head coach.

Injuries didn't bother Severna Park as the Falcons ran to a state title last fall. But health problems have hurt them at times during the first part of this season. The top-ranked Falcons were missing three of their top five runners at Saturday's Bull Run Invitational. But Severna Park showed its depth by overcoming that obstacle to win the tough Elite School division at Hereford. Coach Ed Purpura's team came to Bull Run without top runner Ashley Hayes (strained thigh) and Chris Patrick (No. 3)

Lee Corrigan still remembers the first Baltimore Marathon 11 years ago, when just 6,000 runners took part in the festivities and the city barely stopped to notice. The event's founder faced plenty of doubters, many who didn't believe Corrigan and his agency could make the event significant to the community or to the country's top-notch runners. Thinking back to those days, Corrigan laughs. Now, he's trying to find a place for 25,000 runners in preparation for the biggest Baltimore Marathon in event history Saturday.

What did Bill King and Emma Larkin do on their summer vacation? They kept busy and did a lot of running around. The Dulaney cross country performers ran nearly every day from the end of school in June to the start of practice earlier this month, logging about 300 miles apiece. King and Larkin are part of a trend that has become the norm, especially among the area's top performers. Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association rules don't allow teams to have official summer workouts, so the runners must be motivated to do it on their own. "The top runners, or anyone who wants to have a better chance at a successful season, has to put in the summer miles," C. Milton Wright coach Donnie Mickey said.

GIRLS RUNNER OF THE YEAR Alison Smith Atholton When Smith finished the Class 2A state championship race at Hereford, the senior truly looked as if she'd been in a battle. Mud was splattered all over her because she fell about midway through the race, watching Kristen Malloy of Hereford and others pass her. "All of a sudden, I'm on the ground," Smith said after the race. "My legs gave out [and] I was so worried." But Smith got back up, ran right back into contention and took command, winning her third straight state title.

The heartbreak at Pimlico Race Course continued yesterday for the popular turfer Artie Schiller in the Grade II, $250,000 Dixie Stakes, the track's oldest stakes race. After losing by a nose to long shot Cool Conductor last year, Artie Schiller was unable to fend off the closing rushes of Better Talk Now and Dreadnaught and finished third in the 2006 running. Better Talk Now split the other two in the final sixteenth of a mile to edge Dreadnaught by a head in the 105th running, with Artie Schiller, who has finished lower than third only once in a 21-race career, next by another head.

Westminster cross country coach Dave Cox still laughs when recalling his first glance at a slightly pudgy, un-athletic looking freshman named Rob Kelvey. "He didn't look like a runner," Cox said. "I've seen a lot of runners, and most of the time I can look at their build and their style and tell if they're somebody who's going to develop in two years and be a top varsity runner. I didn't see that in Rob at all." Few people, in fact, could have envisioned what was to come. Now a senior, Kelvey has blossomed into one of the area's dominant runners.

Many of the top cross country runners in the Middle Atlantic area will be chasing Hurricane Isabel out of town tomorrow at the eighth annual Bull Run cross country meet at Hereford. Hereford athletic director Mike Kalisz said yesterday that the three-mile course is in great shape and that it should sustain whatever rain Isabel dumps on it, provided the hurricane is gone by tomorrow morning as forecast. "With the hills on the course, it does drain pretty well," said Kalisz, who serves as meet director along with John Roemer.

Today is the day the Old Mill girls soccer team finds out how good it really is. When the No. 11 Patriots welcome fifth-ranked and three-time county champion Severna Park to Millersville at 7:15 p.m., Old Mill will put a 7-0 record (5-0 in the county) on the line. How important is the game? Several Patriots decided to skip club games over the weekend to stay rested for tonight's matchup.
