The Severna Park volleyball team has towered over its competition in Anne Arundel County so far this season. The No. 2 Falcons have three players on the front line who average 6 feet tall - Mary Smith (6-3), Sophie Hoekstra (5-11) and Tara Register (5-10) - but it's 5-foot-7 setter Morgan Kline who makes the offense work. Kline, a junior, contributed 26 assists and 10 digs to lead host Severna Park (10-0, 9-0) to a 25-19, 25-21, 25-14 victory over No. 8 Arundel (9-2, 8-2) in a key Anne Arundel County league game Monday.

This season was supposed to be a down year for the Arundel volleyball team. If that's the case, they sure picked the right time to find an up. The No. 12 Wildcats (1-0) stormed to a two-set lead over top-ranked St. Paul's (1-1) and then rallied in the fifth set to defeat the Gators, 25-16, 25-19, 21-25, 16-25, 15-10 in a nonleague match.

Baltimore beach volleyball is a highly visible contrast to the many negatives often associated with Baltimore ( "How to save Baltimore's beach volleyball," Aug. 6). In fact, an investment banker who is an avid player told me it was the main reason he chose Baltimore to live and work. It is not only a place to play and unwind after a hard day's or week's work, it is an inviting social setting to network with real live, lively people. I actually discovered the Inner Harbor myself when my daughter played and ended up moving to Key Highway.

Jeff Barker reported in June that the school was considering adding a fee to attend volleyball and wrestling matches, but  associate athletic director Ryan Bowles said nothing had been decided at the time.

Two years ago I moved to Baltimore, where the roads are littered with pot holes (and litter) - I should know because I've had to circle them to find parking. Two of my housemates have had their cars broken into, my high taxes make my escrow payments exceed my mortgage, and a train bellows its horn in my neighborhood at all hours of the night. So it surprises me that in my first public request of this city, I am simply asking for it's leaders to do nothing at all. I am a 33-year-old professional, and I am a demographic that every city fights to have.
