At Cardinal Gibbons School, associated famously with baseball because of its connection to Babe Ruth's early life in Baltimore, there is a spring track team, and here in the final weeks of the life of the school, attention must be paid. The Crusaders track team has no high-jump equipment, no pole-vault equipment, old starting blocks donated from a richer Catholic high school, an asphalt track that causes shin splints in runners, and a 24-year-old coach who runs the team between his day job in heating/air conditioning and his night job as a waiter.

Members of the Bluford Drew Jemison Rockets baseball team gathered in a group on the third-base line of Utz Twardowicz Field on Tuesday afternoon. The day was already special. The weather was gorgeous, they were playing baseball and knew they had raised enough money to keep their previously struggling program afloat. But all of a sudden, their day got even better. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones walked through the third-base gate, waved and strolled down the base path toward the players, many of whose mouths hung open in shock.

Hereford freshman Kelly Wesolowski caught the attention of track coach Brad Duvall when training for soccer and playing that sport in the fall. Duvall believed Wesolowski could give the No. 3 Bulls a boost when she came over to track in the winter. She did just that, quickly turning into one of the area's top distance runners during the indoor track season. Wesolowski has continued to develop in outdoor track, and turned in a strong, third-place performance in the 3,200 meters during the Pikesville Track Classic on Saturday.

The weather has done none of the spring sports teams any favors. There is only so much that outdoor teams such as track and field can do. For example, some attempts at horizontal jumps outdoors have found frozen pits.When things thaw out, some things are expected to stay the same, like the C. Milton Wright boys track team winning an eighth straight county title. However, others may change: Fallston appears poised to regain the girls track team title after yielding to Edgewood last year.Among the expected standouts this season are four who accounted for eight individual championships in the county meet a year ago -- double-winners Brian Harris of C. Milton Wright and Terry Vail of Bel Air for the boys, and Rebecca Lesesne of Edgewood and Christy Moon of Aberdeen.

If last year's River Hill football team resembled a track team, with speedy scatbacks Evan Griffin and Justin Arn combining for more than 3,200 yards from scrimmage, this year's team would be better characterized as a rugby squad. The Hawks (3-0) won their 27th consecutive game Friday night at Atholton (0-3), 28-6, behind a pounding running game led by Kalonji Moore, Cory Daniel and Jon Kanda. All three players stand at least 6-feet tall and weight at least 200 pounds. "We have a lot of athletic players on offense, our running backs are big and strong and can break tackles, and our linemen just give us a good push.

Archbishop Curley's Nicholas Freeman may be the smallest back-up nose tackle in high school football. At 5 feet 1 and 190 pounds, Freeman gives away a lot of brawn to the centers he lines up against. But don't underestimate him. Archbishop Curley coach Sean Murphy calls him "the heart and soul" of the 3-0 Friars team that upset Loyola, 39-7, last weekend and jumped to No. 12 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 poll. Freeman, a lineman since he started playing football at 10 years old, said he loves the trenches because it's where everything starts.

Howard field hockey coach Kristen Vance recognized junior midfielder Emily Penn as something special on the field when she was just a freshman and moved her up to the varsity. This season, in search of scoring, Vance told the 5-foot-1 Penn to shoot when she had the chance, and the results have been stunning. Penn leads the Lions in goals with seven, and they are undefeated (4-0) going into Friday's 7 p.m. game at Atholton. "She has tremendous field awareness," Vance said of Penn.
