Carroll County's spring sports season concluded with two state team championships and several individual crowns for high school athletes. A miracle finish earned the Liberty softball team its first state title, while the Lion girls' track and field team added to its championship tradition. In softball, Liberty trailed McDonough, 2-0, in the bottom of the seventh inning in the Class 2A state championship game at the University of Maryland softball complex.

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.
