Preliminary discussions with Washington Catholic Athletic Conference have taken placeIn nearly 10 years as football chairman for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, Steve Walker has seen the difficulties the six A Conference teams can experience trying to fill out a 10-week schedule with competitive opponents. One of the possible solutions, he said, would be a merger with the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. The combination would create an exceptionally competitive football conference joining such Washington-area powerhouses as DeMatha, Good Counsel and St. John's with Gilman, McDonogh, Loyola, Calvert Hall, Mount St. Joseph and Georgetown Prep.

To write it has been an impressive start for the boys and girls soccer teams at McDonogh is a huge understatement. Both teams won their respective conference championships last season -- the boys winning the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the girls winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference -- and both left last season and started this season as the area's No. 1 teams. Both teams are constant targets -- knock off McDonogh and a season can be made.

What was billed as an epic matchup of area football titans in Saturday's inaugural I-95 Kickoff Classic quickly turned into a one-sided affair, as top-ranked Gilman raced to a three-touchdown lead by halftime and rolled to a 28-7 win over Good Counsel, ranked No. 1 by The Washington Post and No. 9 in the nation by USA Today. The win gave Baltimore teams -- considered heavy underdogs in the two-day tournament -- three wins in their four games against Washington-area powers. None, however, was more high-profile than Gilman's.
