A milestone of sorts went practically unnoticed last week when the Liberty girls basketball team won its fourth game of the season.Under normal circumstances, this would not seem to be a big deal. Liberty is one of four girls' teams in the county to reach that level already this season.However, "normal circumstances" does not exactly include the Liberty program of recent years. One has to go back to 1992-93 to find a team that won more than three games. In succeeding seasons, the number of wins was 3-2-0-3.

If you needed intrigue to spice up a match, you would have found it at Liberty High in Eldersburg on Tuesday night. Just ask the Trumbos. Becky Trumbo was seventh-ranked Century's coach, while younger brother Bryan manned the bench for No. 13 Liberty. In the end though, the older sister's Knights won, 25-23, 24-26, 25-19, 25-17, in a match that had more twists and turns than a Stephen King novel. The match was played before a large crowd from both schools, which are less than 10 miles apart.

Last year, UMBC's women beat Towson with one second remaining on a goal by Lauren Traber. This year, the Tigers had Becky Trumbo. Trumbo, a freshman sensation from Liberty High, scored four goals and assisted on one last night as Towson prevailed in another tight one, 10-9, at UMBC Stadium. The five points moved Trumbo two from the school's freshman record set by Nikki Popolano five years ago. "She has just been a huge contributor, someone who elevates everyone's game around her," said Tigers coach Linda Ohrin.

Century volleyball coach Becky Trumbo wonders if she'll get a hug from her kid brother, Bryan, on Tuesday night. It happened last time when their teams played. Becky, 26, was coaching her first season at Century last year and Bryan, 23, was doing the same at Liberty as their teams were set to play each other. As the coaches and captains met with officials, Becky extended her hand for a routine handshake. Instead, Bryan reeled her in for a big brotherly hug. Gamesmanship?

Becky Trumbo never thought this day would come, the day that might be the last of her college lacrosse career. The Towson senior could get an extension with a couple of upsets this weekend in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. By successfully defending their title, the Tigers would clinch a berth in the NCAA tournament. Otherwise, the prolific career of one of the best players in Towson history could come to a close with today's CAA semifinal at James Madison. "When I was a freshman, the senior class told me that it's going to fly, that the four years go by the fastest ever in your whole life.

Dave Trumbo, who during his 11 years as coach built Liberty's volleyball team into one of the state's elite, has resigned to accept the head coaching position at Villa Julie College. Under his direction, the Lions won Class 2A state titles in 2003 and 2004 - compiling a metro-area-record 49-match winning streak along the way - and advanced to the finals in 2005. They also earned nine Carroll County and six regional titles. "The timing was right," said Trumbo, who has a career mark of 167-31.

For Dave Trumbo, the timing was finally just right. After nine county championships in his 11 years as coach of the Liberty volleyball team, Trumbo last week decided to try his hand at college coaching by accepting the top job at Division III Villa Julie College. Villa Julie athletic director Brett Adams had courted Trumbo off and on for five years. "I always wanted to see what I could do at the next level, and I wasn't willing to move to do it," said Trumbo, who praised Villa Julie's recent growth, including its new student housing.

Towson freshman Becky Trumbo scored the first goal of her college career 49 seconds into her first game, and she has been leading the Tigers on attack ever since. The Liberty graduate already has become the leading freshman scorer in Towson history. And her 44 points and 36 goals are the best on the Tigers this season. "We needed a girl who could go to the goal and put the ball in the net, and she's done that," said Tigers coach Linda Ohrin. "Our expectations of her as a top-notch recruit and freshman definitely have been fulfilled."

In 1950, Dalton Trumbo, a top Hollywood screenwriter, was sent to federal prison for maintaining that his political beliefs were a personal matter and none of Congress' business. After serving his sentence he was punished again when the studios barred him from working. His playwright son, Christopher Trumbo, tells the story in Trumbo: Red, White and Blacklisted, which Rep Stage is presenting through Sept. 28. James Dalton Trumbo, born in Colorado in 1905, had many of the characteristics traditionally ascribed to Westerners.

Two of the metro area's top three volleyball teams from last season have new coaches after the departures of Centennial's Jerry Hulla and Liberty's Dave Trumbo to the collegiate ranks. That's where the similarities between the two situations end. While new Centennial coach Larry Schofield's ascension from the school's junior varsity was part of a plan that was months in the making, the hiring of new Liberty coach Laura Ritter was anything but. In fact, before Ritter's hiring in late July, Liberty's prospects for a new coach were so barren that some associated with the program even considered letting the players essentially coach themselves, with a parent assuming the role of figurehead.

Whether No. 6 Liberty needed to prove something in yesterday's Sixth Annual Maryland High School Lacrosse Showdown was a matter of debate even among the Lions themselves. If they did, their 13-10 victory over No. 5 Roland Park at Towson University's Minnegan Stadium - their first ever win over a top-five team - certainly silenced any critics who remained despite the Lions' fine track record over the past few years. "This means a lot," said Lions senior Sarah Scrivener, "because before this game we still felt like we had something to prove.

Sam Walters said it was a "life-changing experience." Her Liberty teammate, Melissa Stansbury, called it the "most memorable moment" of her career. Perhaps, surprisingly, that kind of lasting impression didn't come from either of the two state championship matches that the premier senior outside hitters have played in since making the varsity as sophomores. It happened in the state semifinals last season against North East of Cecil County, when Liberty pulled out a tense 25-23 victory in a marathon game that sent the Lions to the state title match.
