This one won't go down as one of the better girls basketball games of the season.North Carroll still is trying to find its identity as a team, and Walkersville has a long way to go before it is ready to compete against strong teams.The result of this matchup was a loosely played, foul-marred and turnover-filled game that had North Carroll winning with ease, 64-38, at home.The Panthers (2-3) jumped off to a 20-4 lead at the end of the first quarter with the help of a subpar Walkersville shooting performance, and there was never any doubt about the outcome after that.

When Francis Scott Key last faced Walkersville pitcher Bronson McLain, the Eagles knocked him out of the game in the second inning.Yesterday, coach Rob Caples' team got another shot at McLain. Only this time, the results were far less satisfying.McLain used his four-pitch repertoire to slow Key's offense, going the distance and giving up just two hits to lead Walkersville past the host Eagles, 6-2, in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League game.McLain threw 97 pitches, mostly relying on fastballs and changeups but also throwing in occasional sliders and curves.

Hannah Oneda made a little history in her final 3,200-meter run in high school Thursday. The Winters Mill senior ran away from the field early and broke a 30-year old record when she won the Class 2A race in 10:52.01 during the first day of the state track and field championships at Morgan State. The Johns Hopkins-bound runner broke the mark of 10:56.3, set by Atholton's Carolyn Forde in 1982. But while she said she's happy to do so, she seemed more concerned with the fact she won't get to run the race again at this level.
