COLLEGE PARK -- Five years of stunting, weightlifting, competitions and curling irons have created this: the University of Maryland's competitive cheerleading team, one of the best in the country. "I believe that because we are the first school to launch cheerleading as a varsity sport, we will always be a dynasty," coach Jarnell Bonds said. "We will always be the leaders in this." Not to diminish the women's accomplishments, but Maryland also remains the nation's only cheerleading team to have varsity status.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
Commentary is absolutely in order on last week's decision by the powers that be in the management of the high school athletics programs in Harford and Cecil counties to do away with the upper vs. lower division so-called title games. But what to say? One possibility: It's about time. After all, had the practice been done away with after the first season or two of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, maybe the odd custom could have been chalked up to a paperwork mistake in devising the league.

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.

Her team has won only three of 17 games. She is constantly double-teamed. Doesn't sound like too much fun, does it? "I do have my moments when I get down," said Glenelg Country School's Toyin Ogunfolaju. Surprisingly, those moments are rare and short-lived. Ogunfolaju, a 5-foot-11 junior on the Dragons' girls varsity basketball team, has managed to elevate her game despite her team's shortcomings. Going into this week, the Nigeria-born Ogunfolaju was the area's second-leading scorer averaging 23.4 points per game.

No matter the outcome of Saturday's men's lacrosse game between Loyola and Navy, the Midshipmen will stand near the southern end of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and sing the "Navy Blue and Gold" song at game's end. And Charley Toomey will likely join them. That might seem odd considering that Toomey, as the coach of the Greyhounds, will do everything in his power to guide his team to a victory over Navy. But he is the former head coach of the Naval Academy Prep School team and a former assistant coach for the varsity squad, and Toomey's link to the Midshipmen still resonates with him today.

Kiandre Pratt, a senior wide receiver/defensive back at Joppatowne, does the little things that impress coach Bill Waibel. Pratt, 5 feet 6 and 135 pounds, is called on to do a lot of blocking in the Mariners' offense, which runs more than 90 percent of the time. It's a job without a lot of glory. Pratt has never missed a practice since joining the varsity team as a junior. He also played one year of JV football. Pratt is a member of the National Honor Society and plans to major in mechanical engineering at Maryland or Michigan.

After the River Hill boys soccer team wrapped up the program's eighth state championship with a 3-2 overtime win over Loch Raven in Saturday's Class 2A final, second-year coach Matt Shagogue didn't have to think hard about the season's turning point. It came early, when the Hawks (16-4) dropped a 3-1 decision to rival Mount Hebron in the county opener that put the team at 1-3. "We just said our goal is to be undefeated the rest of year," he said. "What we did was, week by week, we said this week we need to go 2-0, and then this week we need to go 2-0, and everyone was barred against talking any farther ahead.

However, his Boston U. coach, Carl Adams, said if the 165-pound junior hopes to advance to the top level of collegiate competition, "Zach needs to improve his offense on his feet. He needs to become aggressive when he goes against people at the top level."
