If Friday's preliminary bout was any indication, this weekend's Morningstar-White Round II should be a dandy.And, if Friday's meetingbetween Milford Mill and Francis Scott Key was any indication, this weekend's state Class 1A boys meet could be a barn-burner, too.The state track meet is on tap this weekend at Western Maryland College, and county teams and athletes figure to be involved in some interesting battles.Westminster's Stephanie Morningstar, the defending state champion at 800, 1,600 and 3,200 meters, was swept in those three races by Dulaney (Baltimore County)

The Century boys are being led by a bit of an unusual combination as they try for a second straight Class 2A state title in track and field. Pole vaulters often concentrate on that one event. Chandler Kennell and Nick Neral are two of the state's top pole vaulters, but they also help the Knights in other ways and were big reasons No. 3 Century led after Thursday's first day of the state meet at Morgan State. Class 3A and 4A have their first day today, with all four classes coming together to finish Saturday.

The Baltimore City indoor track championship meet's date has been changed again. It will now take place on its original date of this Wednesday at the Fifth Regiment Armory, school officials confirmed Monday morning. Late last week, officials from the meet said the event was being moved to this Friday to give the athletes a chance to compete in an extra meet today. But transportation issues forced meet organizers to cancel that meet on Monday morning. Now, since there's no meet Monday, they're going to move the championship meet back to the original Wednesday date at the Armory at 3:45 p.m., according to meet organizer Jerry Molyneaux.

TRACK AND field is an odd duck athletically in Howard County. Highly popular indoors and outdoors for high-schoolers, it may be the only sport that lacks a nonschool-related organization to teach youngsters the fundamentals of and provide competition in running faster, jumping higher or farther and throwing for distance. The county Department of Recreation and Parks was trying to fill a little of that gap Friday with a track meet, the first of its kind locally in years. It was for kids ages 9 to 14. But, alas, rain forced it to be canceled.

Hammond's Jermika Miller had long wanted to win a state title. The triple jumper finally got one Friday - in her last high school meet. Miller won her event in Class 3A at the state championship meet at Morgan State on a day that featured weather more suited for football than track. The senior turned in her second-best jump of the season to win on the first day of competition for Class 3A and 4A schools. The No. 6 Digital Harbor boys lead in Class 3A (23 points), thanks to a win from Michael Francis in the long jump and Corey Mendez's second-place effort in the high jump.

The first day of the state track meet for public schools is scheduled for Monday at 11 a.m., at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex. This meet is for Class 1A and 2A schools, but if there is inclement weather, the MPSSAA website will have an announcement on it by 7 a.m.  If the meet is called off, it would be just moved back a few days, and the site would have that information as well. Class 3A and 4A schools are set to have their state meet on Tuesday at 4 p.m., and weather doesn't appear to be a problem there.  For those planning to go, the state meet always draws very big crowds, and doors will open an hour before the start each day, so arriving early would be helpful.
