After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said. "I had one more semester to graduate.

Broadneck senior forward Nate Watkins made quite the impression with his new team in the No. 12 Bruins' season opener against Meade on Tuesday, throwing in some last-minute heroics for good measure. A transfer from Wisconsin, he put away a centering pass from fellow senior Jeff Horst with 2:24 to play - his third goal of the game - to lift Broadneck to a 3-2 win over the visiting Mustangs. Watkins scored his first two goals late in the first half to give the Bruins (1-0) a 2-1 halftime lead, but the Mustangs tied the game early in the second half and had more chances to grab control before Watkins' final tally.

Katie Rutan, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard from Xavier, is transferring to Maryland, Terps coach Brenda Frese announced Thursday. Rutan played two seasons at Xavier, shooting nearly 40 percent from beyond the 3-point line. "Katie has a chance to bring something to our team that will fill a need — a pure shooter," Frese said. "She's the kind of player who loves to be in the gym getting shots up and always thinks she's going to make her next one. " She averaged nearly 8.0 points per game as a Musketeer and was an Atlantic-10 All-Rookie selection as a freshman.

Current system is unjust David Teel Newport News Bo Ryan does not appear to be an outlaw coach. His Wisconsin basketball program, by all accounts, wins the right way. But Ryan's reaction to forward Jarrod Uthoff's transfer request was indefensible and again exposed the NCAA's unfair treatment of transfers. Barring overwhelming evidence of tampering, coaches should have zero say over a transfer's destination. Blocking conference rivals is standard, but Ryan went beyond the Big Ten, blocking the entire ACC because of the annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty says he's pleased that Major League Baseball announced Friday that it would revert to the old interpretation of a catch on a transfer play. With a slight smile, though, Flaherty said, "it's about four (or so) days late. " Flaherty became the poster boy for interpreting the rule in its previous form after he dropped a ball while attempting to turn a double play in the seventh inning of Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. With one on and no outs, Grady Sizemore hit a comebacker to pitcher Zach Britton , who threw to Flaherty at second base.

Eli Carter, a 6-foot-2 guard who received his release from Rutgers after the firing of controversial coach Mike Rice Jr., announced Friday on Twitter that he will choose between Maryland and Florida. Carter led the Scarlet Knights in scoring as both a freshman (13.8 points per game) and again as a sophomore (14.9) before suffering a season-ending broken leg in mid-February. Given the circumstances of Carter's transfer - coming after Rice was forced out amid charges of physically and verbally abusing his players during practice - he might be allowed to play immediately rather than having to sit out the one year normally required by the NCAA.

The decision by the state to eliminate funding for the proposed rail cargo transfer facility in Morrell Park is patently absurd ( "State pulls $30 million from rail facility project in major victory for community activists," Aug. 28). Over the recent past we have seen many businesses consolidate and move their headquarters out of the Baltimore area. One the few assets that Baltimore has that can't be moved is the port. But it seems that the powers that manage the state and city are in the process of diminishing the value of the port to the businesses that utilize it. While it's popular to blame the railroad, the fact is that the railroad must operate, within the law, in a manner to maximize profits for its shareholders.

State officials have abandoned plans for a rail cargo facility in an economically depressed corner of West Baltimore, amid vocal opposition from residents and diminishing political will. With the state withdrawing more than $30 million in funding, the CSX Transportation facility envisioned for the city's Morrell Park neighborhood will not be built, Maryland Transportation Secretary James T. Smith said Thursday. CSX and the port of Baltimore had been counting on using the facility to help move additional cargo.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter tried to bite his tongue when asked about the overturned call that led to his first ejection of the season during the Orioles' 8-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Showalter has defended the new replay system, saying that there needs to be patience to let baseball work out the bugs. But at the same time, the Orioles have a shot at doing some big things in 2014, and anyone would hate for a replay-related snafu to decide the outcome of a pivotal game in September - or October.

Three men with local ties -- North Carolina coach  Joe Breschi (Loyola High), Delaware coach Bob Shillinglaw (Severna Park) and Mount St. Mary's associate athletic director Mike Hardisky  (Towson State) -- will be part of the nine-member NCAA rules committee that will decide whether to make that change, along with several other possible tweaks.

St. Frances defensive end Rahshaun Smith has been cleared by Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association officials to play football this fall after transferring during the last school year from Calvert Hall. Smith, rated the No. 15 prospect in the Class of 2016 last week by the recruiting website rivals.com, has moved his primary residence by more than 30 miles which allows him to play without sitting out for a year, said Lee Dove, executive director of the MIAA. League rules require a varsity athlete who played the same sport at another MIAA school to sit out a year with two exceptions - that he moves more than 30 miles or his former school discontinues the sport.
