Severna Park has dominated Class 4A boys cross country the last few years. The Falcons won the last two state championships by wide margins and easily beat most opponents during the season. That didn't happen during the Bull Run Invitational's Elite Division race Saturday at Hereford. No. 2 Dulaney has run well early this fall, and the Lions pushed No. 1 Severna Park, before the Falcons pulled out a seven-point victory. This race was likely a preview of what will be seen at the Class 4A state title meet on Nov. 8, also at Hereford, and both teams knew it. Eric Walz of Dulaney was the individual champion, taking first in 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds as the Lions put two runners in the top 10. But Severna Park used the depth that's made it so hard to beat over the last three seasons.

Ryan Forsyth and Rhys Burgett routinely push each other in Severna Park practices. They believe that makes both run faster and better. They took that strategy to Saturday's 62nd annual Spiked Shoe Cross Country Invitational at Wyman Park, and it paid off handsomely. Forsyth won the race, beating runner-up Burgett by seven seconds as the pair outlasted a tough field in the Elite Division and led top-ranked Severna Park to an easy victory. Forsyth finished the 5K course in 15 minutes, 42 seconds and combined with Burgett to beat out a number of other tough local runners such as Centennial's Alec Font (third, 16:08)

North Carroll senior Kristy Lare said she was in a slump as a setter for the Panthers' volleyball team, so she used her performance as a back-line defender and server to make up for it.She served up nine consecutive points early in the second game of last night's Class 3A West region quarterfinal match against Walter Johnson to help the host Panthers to a 16-14, 15-2, 15-9 victory. No. 13 North Carroll (13-3) likely will visit South Carroll, which defeated Liberty last night, in a West regional semifinal tomorrow.

But after a strong second-half start by the Indians, a Montgomery County team, (16-3)
