No. 11 Randallstown had trouble in the first half breaking away from host Pikesville, which trailed only by four at halftime. And it wasn't until the Rams (8-2) made a second-half defensive adjustment, switching to a tight zone to take away the Panthers' perimeter game, that they ran away with a 102-57 boys basketball victory Wednesday night. The final score marks a season-high total for Randallstown, which outscored Pikesville (3-7) in the third quarter 35-3. Thirteen players, the entire Rams roster, scored, led by Jerell Cooke with 25 points..

Handling the offensive burden early and then leaning on its strong defense the rest of the way, the McDonogh boys soccer team came away with a 3-0 win over visiting Loyola Friday afternoon. Senior midfielder Jake Weiner scored in the second minute and senior defender Neal Desai followed with a goal minutes later for the early advantage. The visiting Dons often pressed, but the home team's sturdy defense, led by seniors Joe Meyer and Marquez Fernandez, didn't budge. The victory assures the No. 2 Eagles (17-2)

The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association yesterday voted to require students transferring from public schools during the academic year to sit out a year before participating in MIAA varsity sports. The vote, by MIAA principals, was 20-4. "What happens now," MIAA executive director Rick Diggs said, "is that any student-athlete that comes in from a non-member school is ineligible to participate in any varsity sport he played at the previous school for one calendar year from his first date of attendance at the new school."

Howard High School wrestler Steve Canterbury is a senior tri-captain on a rebuilding team for the second time in his four-year career with the Lions. His coach, Sean Alkire, said having Canterbury on the team "is like having another coach." And at Howard, the extra help from the seniors is necessary. This season the squad has 15 freshmen, only one of whom had ever wrestled before the day he walked into the Howard gym for tryouts. Canterbury, 17, wrestles in the 145-pound weight class, carries a 3.9 weighted grade point average and hopes to attend Loyola or the University of Maryland next season.

Mount Hebron's Ashley Bruns is best known for her scoring power, but in Saturday night's game against Moorestown, N.J., the senior made the biggest play of the game on defense. With the host Vikings clinging to a one-goal lead in overtime after Julianne Giles broke a tie, Moorestown won the next draw, but Bruns knocked down a Quakers pass and Giles scooped up the ground ball. The Vikings stalled away the final 2 minutes, 40 seconds to hand the Quakers their first loss of the season, 12-11.

Fourteenth-ranked Marriotts Ridge does not have the type of lineup that strikes fear into its opponents, so the Mustangs rely on sound defense and good pitching to win games. In Saturday's Howard County matchup against No. 8 Hammond, Marriotts Ridge made enough plays on offense and locked down the host Golden Bears' potent lineup for a 4-3 victory. The Mustangs handed Hammond its first loss of the season, but they still remain a game back in the conference standings. "We really tried to focus on our game," said Marriotts Ridge assistant coach Michael Doyle, who was filling in for head coach Paul Eckert, who had a family commitment.

The outcome of yesterday's baseball game between No. 2 Calvert Hall and No. 6 Archbishop Curley was written in the sky, if not the stars. The dark clouds over the outfield fence at Carlo Crispino Stadium dissipated into rainbows at the end of the decisive third inning of Calvert Hall's 7-1 victory Friday. The Cardinals blew the game open in the third, forcing Curley's starting pitcher, Mike Niederhauser, from the mound and roughing up his replacement, Sean Doyle, as Calvert Hall scored five of its seven runs.

In the highly competitive Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference girls lacrosse league, one small spurt can make all the difference, and No. 3 Notre Dame Prep used one midway through the second half to fuel a 16-13 victory over No. 7 Archbishop Spalding on Thursday. Erin Laschinger scored three straight goals and Katie Liberatore had one in a four-goal run that gave the host Blazers a 14-10 lead. During that stretch, Spalding was a little off its game, with a couple of turnovers and two yellow-card penalties that put it two players down for the run's final two goals.

Anne Arundel County public schools have announced the discontinuation of gymnastics as a high school varsity sport because of sagging participation and a lack of coaches. Four of the county's high schools had obtained gymnastics coaches just a few weeks before practice for the spring season, county officials said in a statement last week. County athletic procedures dictate that at least six of Anne Arundel's 12 comprehensive high schools must field varsity teams in a sport for the county to support it. "It is regrettable that we have had to make this decision," county schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell said.
