When Monique Bassett was in grade school near New Orleans, she would regularly scribble her personal goals on a sheet of notebook paper and tape them on her bedroom wall. Early on, her goals were directed mostly toward academics -- straight A's, perfect attendance and honor roll. When she reached junior high and developed a passion for basketball, a more long-term goal was posted: becoming a basketball coach. "I've always taken a lot of pride in the game," said Bassett, who played DivisionI ball at Bethune-Cookman.

Outplayed for a good portion of a scoreless first half against No. 7 Perry Hall yesterday afternoon, the No. 3 Archbishop Curley boys soccer team didn't see a need for any drastic adjustments going into the second 40 minutes of play. Just some smarter play with more urgency and, first and foremost, making sure to get to the ball first. The Friars made sure to do all that in the second 40 minutes and with it came goals from Aaron Beale and Chris Weaver to enjoy a 2-0 win over the Gators at the McDonogh Tournament in Owings Mills.

Before the start of the 1998 softball season at Glen Burnie, coach Bob Broccolino made a pledge to his players that if they brought home a state championship, he would shave off his mustache. Later that spring, the group delivered the program's third state crown, leaving Randazzo Park with a championship plaque. And, sure enough, Broccolino went home minus his mustache. "The kids brought a shaving kit and everything they needed to the park. I had that mustache since I was in the Army back in 1971, and nobody in my family had ever seen me without one," said Broccolino, laughing at the recollection.

Erin Soulen has been a part of some of the greatest moments in South Carroll field hockey history. She started and played on the school's 1991 state championship team and later coached the 2002 state title team. Soulen then guided the Cavaliers to appearances in the state finals the following year and the state semifinals in 2004. Several months ago, however, Soulen made the agonizing decision to give up coaching due to the health problems of her son, Jake, who turns 2 next month. Jake was born with malrotation, a type of obstruction caused by abnormal development of the intestines while the fetus is in the mother's womb.

Phil Chenier faces the same concerns any other high school basketball coach has at this time of the season. His Wilde Lake High varsity squad was 9-7 as of late last week and trying to get everything together for a late-season roll heading into post-season play. Chenier, 31, is a former standout player at Wilde Lake and Howard University who knows the game and loves teaching it. He also is fortunate in that when a basketball question occurs, one trusted source he can turn to is a three-time National Basketball Association all-star who, as a television announcer, is still involved in the pro league.

More than a decade ago, Brooke Kuhl-McClelland looked like she might be well on her way to becoming, in her own words, the best tap-dancing attorney in town. In her heart, she was always going to be a dancer. She couldn't deny that. When she was growing up in Lutherville, coaches begged her to come out for their teams, but nothing quite grabbed her like dancing, and even the hours on top of hours of classes only served to whet her appetite. But eventually, as the girl became a woman, it came time to earn a living.
